I filed for an LLC on the 20th and everything went through this morning. That said, the first two books that I plan to publish, I’m putting the first drafts on Wattpad. One will be on my main page, and the other will be on the company’s page. When I get my website set up, I may publish chapters there a couple day earlier than they reach this site just to drive some traffic to my own. Anyway, for now, I’m interested in hosting some contests and giveaways and whatnot on Wattpad to get the company a little attention until the first book is released.
What kind of giveaways/contests/whatever would you all do in this situation? I use Fiverr a lot for covers, so I’m thinking of holding a writing contest where the winner will get a cover at my expense. I also edit, so maybe free editing of up to 10K words. Any other ideas? I’m open to a lot of things. If it helps, the company will mostly focus on urban fiction, fantasy, and children’s books, but I’ll expand as more books are released.
I’m really just trying to build engagement. I know Wattpad popularity doesn’t exactly translate to sales, but even people just knowing about the company will be good.
