Love this episode! Mark's method really does work. You have to work hard, though. I spent a month getting things just right before I found one ad that performed well. A friend of mine (who I believe Mark was referring to in this video) can ramp up his spend and consistently get 100-200 sign ups per day. Will this kind of thing last on Facebook? No. But it's a good time to test it out.

Great show. I had no idea I could use Gmail for my newsletters. I need to check that out. Mailchimp drives me nuts.

Hey Nick! Sorry I just saw your comment here. I think I have Mailchimp down but they just don't think like me (i.e. a four year old). The whole segmenting of lists and super-segmenting of campaigns is a lot to wrap my head around. Thanks for offering! Now I know who I can ping in the middle of the night with annoying questions.

Great show! The experiments you did with Bookbub & ads are wise. Huss is an inspiration.

I'm giving away The Camelot Kids: Part One and Part Two eBooks (plus two surprise eBooks) on my homepage.

If you know anyone who likes Fantasy (for all ages) then send 'em my way! They'll need to sign up for my newsletter, where I announce new releases and give away eBooks, stories and even a Kindle sometimes!

Another great review for The Camelot Kids! I'm loving this blog tour so far. A lot of Percy Jackson fans are enjoying the book.
