Should You Enter Your Book in a Giveaway?
As Indie authors it is important to make the most of your marketing dollars – the primary goal being to increase sales, followed by the need to develop and boost your fan base. One of the easiest ways to promote your book is to enter it in book giveaway contests. Here are some of the benefits of participating in a book giveaway:
- A no-cost or low-cost way to introduce your book
- Stimulates awareness and interest in your book and brand
- Generates leads for potential readers
- Cultivates new relationships and widens your fan base
- Generates book reviews
- Leads to future sales and word-of-mouth marketing
We encourage authors to enter their titles in our monthly book giveaway, which we offer at no cost. It is an excellent way to keep the buzz around your title going on the social media networks. We also tweet, post and pin the contest information on all of our social media pages!
Additionally, you can increase the effectiveness of your book giveaway by promoting it on your own website. Tweet about the event, post it to Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, etc. to generate further interest. Fans and followers are more likely to write book reviews. They also lead to future sales and will promote your work.
Be sure to personalize the experience after the contest. When sending out your book to the winner(s), slip a note inside the cover congratulating them on winning a copy of your book. Let them know you hope they enjoy reading it and that you would be grateful for a review, if so inspired.
We have a limited number of slots available each month and slots are filled in the order requests are received.
Authors may participate for three consecutive months and offer up to three copies of your book each month.
At the end of each month of participation, Reader Views will contact you with a list of contact information of the winners. Please do not send us your books. Just send a copy of your book to each winner and that’s all there is to it!
NOTE: Our giveaway is open to readers in the U.S. and Canada. Authors must be willing to ship to both the U.S. and Canada, thank you!
