Inkitt is Gold for Authors
I have a website that is GOLD for authors. If you are curious about what type of readers want your books or short stories, this is a must! https://www.inkitt.com allows authors to discover their audience. What is the type of information they give?
They have technology that analyzes who reads your book by showing – gender, the speed in which reader’s go through your book, a graph that displays how many stories were read each day, chapters of the book read per reader, age, location and this is all given using data collected by the website. This information will give you the ability to understand what your audience is and how to go forward with your stories. Understanding this information is extremely valuable in marketing your book or stories. I have been writing lots of short stories, and that allows me to cultivate data about who is attracted to my books, and if you have a chapter book, you will be able to easily see which chapters are read the most. Do people finish your book or do they stop reading at a certain point? You are given all of this data! Analyzing this can be effective in growing an audience by altering your book to see the flow.
Getting Noticed on Inkitt
How do I get my book noticed on Inkitt? How do I get readers to look at my stories? Yes, you can send your collected emails to this website, and this will give you a wonderful bump in understanding your audience. If you do not have an email list, what do you do? That is fine too. Tweet your stories but most importantly: Go to Inkitt’s Facebook page and post your book. This feature, I believe, will be taken away in the future but right now it is a great way to boost reads.
Continually Visit Inkitt
You also need to continually visit the website and check your data. While I have no hard facts to confirm the following, I believe they give the author’s book priority based on the activity of the individual on the website. By continually visiting Inkitt, looking at data, posting in the blogs section, and perusing some activity, your book is more likely to be read.
How is This Data Valuable
The data this website collects will allow you to pinpoint your audience and write in a way that directly narrows in on the most popular style and format to gain attention. You can compare your paranormal horror book to a horror romance you wrote. This data is gold when you begin to market your books. If you already know who your audience is, it makes the process much easier. Go Inkitt!
