New here? If you are new to Cross Promotions, find out how Book Hub's Cross Promotions Work.
Please note: On this promotion we will be offering readers the chance to sign up to genre lists. They will be opting in to your genre, so you will receive entries in your genre.
Reader Audience Reach
This promotion offers you 2 list builders
1. Reader Magnet advert - to capture all readers coming to the landing page
2. A guaranteed list of readers who opt in to your genre
There are 3 ways we will do this:
1. Book Hub advertisers to our readers (45K)
2. All authors who have booked will promote to their readers (so far this is 450K readers)
3. We pay for an advert to a reading community that has 250K readers
So far the number of readers you can reach is more than 750K!
However, the reading community require that we commit to giving away a certain prize value. In order to do this, we have to get at least 150 books as a book bundle to bump up the competition prize value, so we can advertise to this big reader audience of 250 readers. If we don't reach their comp-value you will still reach 423K readers.
This cross promotion will be advertised to readers as a Super Summer Book Bundle Competition. IE, you will promote it to your readers telling them they can enter to 'Win A Super Summer Book Bundle'. 3 x winners will receive the whole bundle of books. 2 Lucky Draw winners and 1 reader who shares the most.
What You Do
- You donate 3 eBooks to the competition (ie 3 copies of the same book, so only 1 book is needed but 3 copies of that book)
- You agree to promote the competition to all your readers
- You agree to share the competition on your social networks like Facebook and Twitter
- You agree to remind your readers to enter just before the promo ends (this helps to remind readers who have forgotten or to catch the ones who missed your first email)
- You will be given different graphics to use for your promotional sharing
Dates ~ July
The promo will run in July for a whole month so you have plenty of time to do your first send and your reminder send. It will commence as soon as we get enough authors to reach the prize value. You will be notified soon.
Below is an example image of the Reader Magnet Adverts. This is an example only, it shows Reader Magnet Adverts in the wrong genre, but that's just to give you an idea of what your Reader Magnet could look like on the page in the right genre. You can see the page in progress here: http://bookhub.online/book-giveaways/super-summer-reads-giveaway
What You Get
What You Get
1. You get all the entrants on the genre you choose.
2. You can select if you want to also advertise a Reader Magnet on the landing page to get immediate subscribers.
3. We also have entrants coming from the Reading Community which will be advertised to their 250K readers.
4. You still have to promote the competition to your mailing list as you would on another cross promotion, but this one gives you an added reader audience from the Reading Community.
Just to iron out any confusion: 3 ways to build your list in this promo:
1. 1st is where you donate a book to the competition and get a copy of the entries in your genre only.
2. 2nd option is with a Reader Magnet Advert on the main landing page which all authors promote, here ANY reader can sign up to your list.
3. We are also advertising to 250 subscribers of a Reading Community
Option 1: Multi Genre Book Bundle Competition = £35
- You get your book cover (for the book you donate to the promo) added to the competition graphic.
- You get a list of the readers who sign up to your genre - in the competition section.
- If you write in different genres and want a list of each, you must book and pay for a second or third genre.
- This is a guaranteed list building option. We don't know how many readers will sign up to your genre, but you will get that genre list. The last Multi Genre promo we ran had at least 1500 in each genre with some genres receiving up to 2000 reader entries.
Option 2: Reader Magnet Advert = £10
- If you want to opt in for the Reader Magnet Advert, you get a banner on the page where you can capture any reader emails who sign up from your banner advert.
- Your Reader Magnet Advert must be 200 x 200 px and can link to any place you want to capture emails or to your Amazon page.
- This is an optional list building activity. This is an additional way to get readers. In the option above, you get one guaranteed list in your genre for the competition. Here you may get readers who cross genres and like the look of your Reader Magnet Advert so they may sign up.
- If you take this option, make your Reader Magnet Advert as enticing as possible. When the reader lands on the page you have only a few seconds to grab their attention. Make those few seconds count!
- Please note: If you come back and book the Reader Magnet Advert after your competition booking, the price will be £10. However, if you book the two at the same time ...
Option 3: Both Options Booked Together = £40
Please only list your Amazon link for us to get your book cover thumbnail. We cannot resize any other image to the format we need. Only Amazon images acceptable!
This must be a flat thumbnail image of your book cover. No 3Ds or anything fancy. An Amazon link works best for our graphic image.
