Group Book Giveaways
Simply put, this is the best way to build your email list without spending thousands of dollars on Facebook, Google or other PPC (pay per click) ads. We gather together 6-12 authors who are willing to give away three copies of their digital book. We then create a landing page and a custom Facebook campaign based on the genre for readers to sign up for the giveaway (see here ). When readers sign up, they agree to be contacted by the authors in the giveaway promotion.
Once the giveaway ends, we select three winners, distribute the books to those winners and then get the list to the participating authors. The reader csv file is attached to the giveaway promotion on your account dashboard. Now you just download the emails and use in your personal email campaigns when you have new releases.
To check genre availability and for more information on how the giveaways work, visit our Group Giveaway page!
