All right, pay attention!
We’ve been absolutely showered with prizes. I’ve lost count of how many books we’ve got coming. Some of them are sets and signed copies. It’s unbelievable!
Anyway. Given the showers of blessing on our efforts, we need to shove this program over the edge and multiply it. Simply put, we need more participants! And there’s only one way we’re going to get more participants… promotion!
We need you! We’ve got to get the word out about this program. So start talking, anywhere and everywhere!
Every little bit counts. Our greatest weapon is social media, so even the smallest status message can help. Post on Facebook, Buzz, Twitter (use #readathon5 as a hashtag), whatever you’ve got. If you have a Facebook page for your business, please consider posting from there, too!
In addition to chattering it up, blog posts would be extremely helpful. Those of you with blogs, please consider posting on our behalf! Below I’ve pasted a sample post with all the pertinent information. Feel free to plagiarize it.
And remember, we have a lovely assortment of graphics, designed for us by the talented Vilisse from Holy Worlds, for your use! If you have a website, please consider posting one of these images in your sidebar. http://incredibooks.com/read-a-thon/promote-the-read-a-thon/
Thanks, everyone! Let’s get the word out!
Here’s a sample post you can feel free to copy if you like:
