How You Can Use Thunderclap To Promote Your Book (Video)

ThunderClap is a cool tool authors can use to reach more people. You can use it to:

  • Build a book launch team
  • Promote a sample chapter
  • Share a book promotion or
  • Get the message out about your cause/charity

You can get started here.

With Thunderclap, you need to choose a supporter goal. If you don’t get enough supporters by your campaign’s end date, none of your messages will be sent out. So it is important to meet your minimum goal.

On Thunderclap you can start with a goal of 100. The main advantage of a larger supporter goal is that it appears to be a bigger accomplishment. However, you can raise your goal later if you want.
