This survey I actually posted to several Facebook group for Children's Books as well as a Kindle Publishing. People would vote for their favorite and I would follow up with a direct message asking if they would like a free advance copy. This was a HUGE push right before launch that helped me get downloads and reviews fast.
A few notes on this process:
- I Tried to create survey once a week.
- Many survey's I would ask people to fill in a response for a name. Then the next week I would take all the entries and ask people to vote on their favorites.
- I would embed the survey's on my own site (like the one you took earlier). The page always remained the same, but I would update the survey link each week. This allowed me to keep all of my auto direct links through my emails and social media to not go out of date.
