It can seem counterintuitive to offer your book to readers for free. However, over 76% of BookDaily Authors have reported to us that they have a permanently free Kindle book published to Amazon or that they are enrolled in the KDP Select program.
Here are the reasons that these authors have elected to use the "free" strategy to attract readers:
• Many authors report that it can lead to a significant increase in sales following the free promotion.
• Their book’s visibility is increased and this can boost its Amazon ranking, leading to greater sales in the long run.
• Increase reviews (which also will help to boost Amazon rankings and future sales)
• Lead in to sell other titles in series or other individual books
BookDaily Authors requested a promotional avenue that could maximize their "free" strategy. Thus the BookDaily Free Ebook Download program was created. The program allows free ebooks from BookDaily authors to be featured to thousands of readers daily. Authors who enlist in this program may choose which dates they would like to promote their free title in our newsletters and only pay for the readers who click to their Amazon download page. It's just $.17 per click with a minimum purchase of only $50 for 300 clicks. The program also includes a feature on the homepage of our site for all readers to view.
Every author who has used this new program has had success. Here are a few testimonials:
"About 1,050 copies of Red Metal are in circulation. Of those, about 800 were downloaded during my promotion with you [BookDaily]."
"I've been very happy with my results using your service. It has exponentially outperformed other promotional avenues I've pursued, without all the time and hassle. My results from my current free promo was even better than the last. I hit 829 out of approximately 85,000 free ebooks yesterday, and my book climbed to #1 in Top 100 Free, in my main category. Yeah!" - GG Fulton, author of "Hound Dog Day"
