Reader Advertising Campaigns
This week sees our first reader advertising campaign start. We are working with a company that has 400K readers on their mailing list. We're emailing to 135K of these readers with a fantastic offer and hope to give our participating authors some good results.
We have a few more in planning and working away to get great deals where we can run collective offers to readers. If you'd like to know about more of these, keep watching your inbox or join my Author Groups.
Any author paying for a Gold Membership are invited to join our 'advertising campaigns' for free. Not cross promotions, advertising campaigns.
In case you haven't heard about our list building Gold Membership, here is what you get:
- Monthly review requests
- Promote your first few chapters
- Advertise your reader magnet free book
- Newsletter Swap Suggestions
- Promote your mailing list in 'Subscribe to our Authors'
Find out more about our Gold Membership.
If you're a Gold Member, don't forget to keep setting your review requests every month so your books are in front of our readers. And make sure all your 'golden' list building activities are in place.
Have you heard about the success some authors are getting from our Exclusive Book Giveaways?
This is ideal for:
- Advanced reader copies (ARC) of your book for getting reviews up early as the book launches
- Authors with no mailing list or small lists who cannot join a cross promotion that limit numbers
- Authors who can't wait for a genre cross promotion and need to get a boost of readers to their books
- Book Launch giveaways to generate buzz for your book and get new subscribers
- Authors who want a more targeted promotion because our readers who enter will be interested in YOUR books!
Dianne Trimble started her Historical Fiction Giveaway last week, and before we started advertising she has had 271 entries! A great list building tool!
