Is Buck Books the Next BookBub?
During the week, Buck Books runs 99 cent promos, and promotes free ebooks on Fridays. Since I’m more interested in gaining visibility than selling copies at the moment, I asked him if we could do a free promo for my perma-free satire, Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air.
Here are the results:
So it looks I gave away around 600 copies, and hit an Amazon (free) sales rank of around #300.
What’s more, since I’m on the Buck Books mailing list myself, I know that Food-Free at Last fits in pretty well with the mostly non-fiction books they promote–including many health / diet books. Which means I’m reaching many of the readers I’m most interested in reaching.
Matt was kind enough not to charge me for this free promotion, and I think giving away 600 copies is a fantastic result.
How much would you pay to give away that number of copies to your target audience?
