KBoards Box Set promotion

The Box Set promotion on KBoards provides a showcase of your e-book box set to readers. The promo is similar to our Spotlight promotion, but is tailored for box sets. The ad includes an extra-large (350-pixel) image of the cover to better show the detail that box set images often include. If the box set includes books from multiple authors, the ad lists all authors. You can include a tagline to describe the box set. And the ad provides information readers like to know, such as genre, total number of pages and average rating for the books included in the box set. See more details below!

What you get:
  1. A promotional post in our Kindle blog. This is a post dedicated to the box set. (See example on the left.) The post is published at either 1pm or 4pm Pacific time.

    The post includes a tagline, a large (350-pixel-high) clickable image of the box set, a list of authors, and excerpts from favorable reviews. We include a prominent buy button, worldwide purchase links, and social media buttons. And, if any of the contributing authors are award-winners or have been on the NYT or USA-Today bestseller lists, we'll highlight that in the introductory paragraph of our ad copy.

  2. A Facebook post featuring your book, to KBoards Facebook fans.

  3. A link to the blog post in our daily e-mail newsletter.

  4. A "KBoards Featured Me" badge to include on your author website. (See example here.)

Requirements:
  • Our family-friendly guidelines apply. No erotica - sorry!
  • Each book in the box set must have at least three reviews on Amazon
  • Average rating for all books in the box set must be 4.0 or higher

Easy sign up: Fill out the form below with the ASIN and the genre for the box set. You'll receive an e-mail scheduling your promotion for our earliest available date.

9 tips to make the most of your Box Set promotion:

Before your scheduled promo day:
  1. Answer our confirmation e-mail, indicating whether you want us to include the optional parts of the post.

  2. Consider dropping your price during your promo day, to $2.99 or less. If you are out to get new readers, $0.99 or free is ideal for the first book in the series. We can indicate in the post that the price has been temporarily lowered for this promotion only, and it will encourage readers to act now to buy your book. The lower your price is, the more likely you are to gain readers who see the promotion and make an impulse buy of your book.

  3. Gather as many positive Amazon reviews as you can. Work your network of readers, book bloggers, and friends to get authentic reviews.

  4. Ensure you have an attractive, professional-looking graphic for the box set. The graphic will appear in large-size in the post, and is an important part of drawing interest in your book.

  5. Refine your blurb (Product Description in Amazon lingo). It should be a concise, compelling description of your book. It's the first taste that potential readers have of your writing, so be sure it's free of typos, grammatical errors, and formatting issues.


  6. On your scheduled promo day:

  7. Look for our Facebook post about your book, and "like" and "share" that post. This will help broadcast your book's post to your Facebook friends and fans.

  8. Post your own Facebook status with a link to the blog post.

  9. Tweet about your book's Spotlight feature on Twitter, with a link to the blog post.

  10. Add our "KBoards Featured Me" badges to your author website. HTML code for this is available here. Let us know if you need help with this. The badges can be posted to Blogger, Wordpress, or any other web page.




FAQ:

What if one of the books in the box set doesn't have 3 or more reviews on Amazon? We do require at least 3 Amazon reviews for our Spotlight Books. If you wish, you can get more exposure for your book through our Book Discovery promotion.

How will I know the date that my book will be featured? You'll receive a confirmation e-mail after you submit your book.

I didn't get my confirmation e-mail! Give us a few hours as sometimes it takes us up to a day to get through all orders. Also, note that our confirmation message goes to the e-mail address associated with your PayPal account, so be sure to check that one.

I did that and I still don't see my confirmation e-mail! Hmm, that is so weird. Go to this thread and ask us about it there - we'll track it down for ya!
