How do I get more reads, votes, and comments?

If you find yourself asking that question, then I have some answers for you.  

What can you do to reach out to readers and potential readers?  How can you encourage readers to comment and vote?  What are all the different ways you can promote your stories?

This #1 ranking guide is written by a Wattpad ambassador and especially geared for new Wattpad authors.  Lots of tips, advice, and personal opinions await you - including everything thing I've done to promote my own Watty's finalist and winning stories - but only if you turn the page.

Reader testimonial by @AyushiPandey-- 'I read your guide for Wattpad success when I first started writing my story last year in August, and now it has been an entire year when I stumbled upon it again. I just have to say, I loved reading it again, it has the best tips one can find (take it from me, I have read many, many guides here). Thank you so much for taking out your time to compile such an amazing book!'  

Reader testimonial by @suspishfishy-- 'I have to thank you again! As soon as I wrote a book that focused on what I wanted to write, instantly people started to read my books and give me feedback!'

**THIS IS NOT A PLACE TO ADVERTISE YOUR STORY.  This is where you'll find detailed instructions for the proper places to advertise and find readers.  If you ask people to read your story here, your comment will be removed.**

Thanks to @EnjxiiBlxck for the cover.

I took a long break from Wattpad and now I'm trying to get back in but there's just nobody reading my books.
I have a story called Wolf Pack and I honestly think it's one of the best pieces of writing I've recently done, but no one seems interested. It's kinda down putting to be honest.

Wow, I have published three short stories, and nobody is even commenting on it, one them has only two reads.

I'm just writting a book and I really love the story and I think it's one of the best things I've ever written, but with every chapter readings are falling...
