On this podcast, I wanted to talk about how I've used Facebook ads to promote what I create

This week I was unable to book an artist in time for the podcast. So I thought I would try something different.

I've been working on ads to promote the podcast and some of the art and music I create too. So I thought I would share how I've been using Facebook ads up until now to promote what I do.

Plus I wanted to share a new type of ad style for me that I've really been happy with.

I talk about my objectives for these ads, the interests I use to find the audience, and the type of ad sets that worked best for me on Facebook.

If you've been curious about creating Facebook ads I thought maybe this might spark some ideas and possibly help inspire others who want to try to do ads in the future.

I don't know I just wanted to try this format on the podcast and see. Can't tell if it's a dumb idea or not but thought what the heck! 😊

How I use one Gmail address for multiple Soundcloud accounts

Do you know the Gmail "+" trick to use one email for multiple accounts on one service? Here's a little trick I use that works for any service.  I talked about this on the podcast episode I did with artist Mortimur K . In this case, let's say I used up all the uploads I have for my free Soundcloud account . With this trick, I can open a new free account and use the same Gmail address. I don't want to create another Gmail account to sign up again.  Using my one Gmail address for multiple accounts on the same service I don't remember when I learned this but you can alter the name on a Gmail address. Like, let's say mine is "". To be clear that is not my email. I wish it was, but this is just a short example. Start with the original Gmail address Add a "+" after the email name Where it says "tom" on the address I can put a "+" after that. Add a "+" after the email name After that "+" I ca

Can I Buy And Resell Copies Of My Own Book From Amazon KDP?

There are two questions that I get asked about publishing my webcomic books on Amazon KDP . 1 - Can I Order A Print Copy Of My Own Book From Amazon KDP? When I started printing on Amazon KDP I also had that question. The reason I put the books together is I was just kind of doing it for myself. I could make a paperback version of my webcomic books and then I and my family could get a copy. It didn't even occur to me that I could actually start selling the book in public.  I thought it was just print-on-demand and then maybe I could order one.  But when I print a book on Amazon KDP I can also get up to 999 copies and sell it on my own!  I was able to get my own copies from Amazon KDP sent to me.  As the author, I can get them at printing cost . So they're at a discounted price. The option to order author copies is right in the KDP publishing setup.  The button is next to the book in KDP. 👇 The other question I get about publishing my book on Amazon KDP... 2 - Can I Sell My A

Fire alarm.

I also learned we could quite possibly sleep through a fire alarm.

Right foot.

I've taken my shoe off several times since then and it still bugs me.
