Back to our research on book promotions for Indie Authors:
The article I mentioned in my past blog recommended three companies: Books Butterfly, Kindle Nation Daily, and Bargain Booksy.
I went to each of these sites. I scouted around for different promotions, cost, layouts, ease of use, and overall appeal for readers.
Of the three, I found that only https://www.Bargainbooksy.com ticked off all of my boxes.
The other two were unappealing, expensive, and didn’t offer what I wanted for my specific genre. Feel free to visit those websites and check them out.
I read the general information on Bargain Booksy as well as followed links they supplied for examples, additional information, and customer reviews.
First of all, their site is attractive and fairly straightforward. They supply a handy chart of genres and the cost of advertising for each genre.
They claim over 305,000 registered users. They also say that a Bargain Booksy feature will help drive sales of your e-book, find a new audience of readers, generate reviews, and improve your book rank on retail sites.
With a paid promotion, your book will be in their daily email of Kindle readers who have expressed an interest in your genre.
They will link your book on Bargainbooksy.com with Kindle, Kobo, Apple, and Nook.
Your promotion will feature your book’s front cover and a short description.
You must price your book between .99 and $5.00 for the length of your promotion. (There are articles that explain how to do this.)
Your book will be in a daily newsletter to over 294K combined subscribers of all genres AND a customized email to readers of your specific genre. [Each with book cover, purchase links, description, and price.]
Additionally, your book will be featured on the Bargain Booksy website and their Facebook Page, which claims 20K followers.
Note: There is a Deal of the Day Premium feature which has different pricing, but it is only for these four genres: Romance, Mystery, Fantasy, and Science Fiction. See their site for details.
Audiobooks can be promoted on their sister site, https://ReadingStacks.com
