I also noticed the author's other books were not exactly burning up the shelves, but I bought one of those as well and it was not badly written. There is no doubt that Garry Taaffe is a competent writer and a persuasive promoter. He has a large following on a blog site where he provides a lot of free information. Good karma there. So the main problem I have with this book is not that you can't draw clicks on Twitter. You can. My problem is with Twitter being a vehicle for conversions (sales). I tried all the techniques he lists and I did get a lot of clicks, but no sales. So, you might say, your book page or book itself sucks. Nope, not the case. I have had good response from the free giveaways promotions. Nevertheless taking the position that my book pages might actually suck I tried another experiment.
I signed up as an Amazon affiliate and started promoting, as a third party of course, top selling books on Amazon. Beaucoup clicks followed, but no sales. So, I left the books behind altogether and promoted a wide variety of top selling Amazon products. Again, many clicks, close but not as many clicks as the author probably gets per post, but nearly as many. So, again, no knock on this book regarding getting clicks, but my opinion is that Twitter will likely under perform for you if you try using it to sell your books.
This is just one person's experience, but don't get your hopes up too high and maybe you won't be as disappointed as I was at the Twitter users response. I did research online and found comments about Twitter users being clickers, but not buyers. I started from a following of about 350, but as you would learn from the book, tagging will take you well beyond your immediate followers and this will result in clicks, in my case up to as many as 30 or a little more for some posts, but sometimes as few as about 10-15, down to a low of 5. This is fairly easy to track. This is the Christmas season as I write this review, the high selling point of the year, so if it doesn't work now when would it work?.
It takes some time and their are some nominal costs involved....
However, he's telling the truth.
After only doing 'some' of his suggestions, I'm already getting traffic to my book pages. It doesn't always translate into sales, but after setting up the system once, I'm getting a steady flow of hits to my books.
And, yesterday, I hit it right with one of the hashtags (not sure which one) and got 3 sales I probably would not have gotten without this book.
If you are an Amazon Kindle author, or anyone looking for strategies to use Twitter to drive traffic to a web page, and you're not already an auto-tweeting hashtag-master, then this book will probably be as beneficial to you as it's been to me.
Thanks Gary for helping me build my audience and sell more books.
Best of all, the plan can be applied to other platforms when you get rolling. Sure, you could spend $$$ to someone to market your product and save a little work, but if you like to do it yourself on a minimal budget, this is a fantastic place to start. The book's a little unpolished, and the resources change as often as the weather, but the plan doesn't. The author is incredibly patient and really knows what he's talking about. I'd recommend this book most heartily to anyone testing the waters of e-book marketing.

Highly recommended to promote your ebook. You probably don't need any other promotion tool.
