Why sponsor a giveaway?
Giveaways are a great way to engage with loyal readers and attract new ones at the same time—not to mention they’re fun and exciting, and can also generate a lot of buzz when executed correctly.
Why some giveaways fail?
We understand many authors who give their books away for free through Amazon’s KDP or other methods can achieve hundreds or even thousands of downloads, but find these efforts have little to no effect on:
- increasing your books sales
- making your book the center of attention
- fostering a lasting relationship between authors and their readers
The problem isn’t that your books aren’t worth reading, but rather:
- your giveaway fails to connect with the right audience
- your giveaway is piled together with other giveaways and gets lost in the crowd
- your giveaway fails to encourage an ongoing relationship between you and your readers
What makes our giveaways different?
- Our giveaways are FREE to enter and are geared toward a specific audience: people who love books
- Our giveaways are run non-consecutively meaning that we only run one giveaway at a time—making your giveaway the center of attention
- Our giveaways encourage an ongoing relationship between authors and their readers by promoting not only your books, but also your *social media accounts and *website or *blog (*where available)
We also provide great value in that our giveaways include physical prize packages which are awarded to a single recipient creating a winning combination of real, tangible and perceived value!
