Yeah. I have a one shot, but I’m afraid people won’t read it because it’s only one page.

It is but having story promotion doesn’t garantee that your story will be successful. You do need it to stand a chance

Yes, it really does since the community is so broad now you have to promote almost daily if not weekly to get people interested in your story. This can be hard if you are not use to promoting on social media.

Depends on what you define as successful. If you’re talking about reads then yeah, it would help if you had good story promotion to get it out to more people.

Well, it depends on what you mean by promotion. I don’t think messaging people is necessary, however posting about it on some public forums wink wink, like this one would probably help with getting people to read your story.

Social media can be so difficult sometimes though. Especially with the different algorithms.

Sorry, for the delayed answer. I agree with this. It really can be difficult. I’m still getting used to Twitter right now.

Absolutely. And once you find your target audience, you want to keep delivering content to them x
