These are great tips! I’m going to try the one about updating on Thursday, right after the art update. Having an Instagram and supporting other authors’ stories is helpful. There are a lot of stories I’ve discovered from screenshots that people have posted of the stories they’re reading.
Asking for reviews is a great way to gain new readers, as well as improve your story! Especially if you submit your reviews to an Instagram review account that has a lot of followers and support.
One that isn’t mentioned in the article and has rarely worked for me is doing or requesting Read for Reads. It only worked with one author who actually became a big supporter of my story, but more often than not, people who request R4Rs only read your story just so you can read theirs, and they usually only post a screenshot of how many chapters they’ve read, not of their favorite moments in the story. They don’t even give feedback, so I don’t consider this helpful at all.
