eBook Sites You Should Be Using to Promote Your eBook Deal!
So you’ve scheduled an eBook promotion and marked down the price of your book (or maybe you’re even offering it for FREE – http://thefutureofink.com/free-is-best-marketing-tool/), but now what? How are people going to hear about this promotion?
You have to do a little work to get your book into the hands of readers. In addition to announcing your eBook deal on your website and other social media platforms it’s definitely worth your time to have a few eBook promotion sites blast out an announcement to their readers.
Check out these sites when you need to get the word out about your eBook promotion!
Note: You may wish to promote on a variety of sites. Some have paid options, others are free. Some sites won’t post about your book unless you have a minimum number of reviews, a certain star rating on Amazon or are priced below a certain dollar amount. A few restrict genres, too. So pay attention to the “rules” for each site.
