Marketing Sites

Here’s a list of low-cost book promotions I’m using. A few comments on some of the columns:

  • Base Cost: This is the minimum you’ll pay to use this service. Note that most free submissions are not guaranteed and may have review requirements.
  • Feature Cost: Options to get a guaranteed listing.
  • Ebook price: how much is your ebook. ‘Free’ indicates temporary or perma-free. ‘Any’ lets you list any book, regardless of price.
  • Review requirements to list under the base price deal: usually listed as ‘XX+ stars on YY+ reviews’
  • Genre: ‘PG-13’ indicates some restrictions on adult content, particularly sex scenes.
