BookBoast offers a newsletter swap for cross-promotion with other authors. I read about this in Derek Murphy’s book Guerrilla Publishing and thought I’d give it a try. The idea behind a newsletter swap is that authors can promote each other’s books to their email lists or blogs.
BookBub is your book’s golden ticket to reaching millions of targeted readers if you can get it. The price for promoting your book is reasonable given the return on investment, but they are very selective about the books they promote. So, be sure to read through their guidelines to maximize your chances of landing a spot.
InstaFreebie is a platform that allows you to set up a book giveaway as a means of getting the word out about your book, growing your book’s email list before launch, as well as getting reviews for your book.
As cliche as this saying is, “the money is in the list” (or in the following) is key to a successful book launch. MailChimp is free for your first 2,000 subscribers, which makes it the perfect tool for list building and marketing your book on a budget.
