Patty's SFF promos megathread. March promo open
« on: November 04, 2015, 04:20:52 PM »
You can register to be notified of the next promo.

Details: http://pattyjansen.com/promo/for-authors/

If you haven't done one of these before,  please read the instructions before entering.


HOW DOES IT WORK?
(aka. Read The Instructions)

1. The site:

I put up a bunch of books that are either free or 99c. Here: http://pattyjansen.com/promo/

2. Social media:

I love Twitter. I love my blog. I have a decent mailing list.
Someone else likes Facebook and is in a gazilllion groups
Someone is really good at G+
Or Reddit
Or Instagram
Or has a following on another forum (like Mobilereads)
Or has a mailing list much bigger than mine

We all post the link to to the promo at the social media outlets of our choice on the day(s) of the promo. We like/retweet/repost each other's posts

3. The proof:

In September, we got over 600 sales for participating authors. Some of those books are still selling through the page
On 3 November, we got over 22,000 downloads for participating authors. Downloads are still happening, even if some of the books have gone back to paid. One author got 1400 downloads.
In December, we got over 900 sales for participating authors.

4. The rules:

Books must be Speculative Fiction. Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror.
If a paid promo, they must be full-length novels (otherwise 99c isn't much of a deal)
Books must be presented well: nice cover, nice blurb, nice writing. I reserve the right to refuse books that don't make the grade. I'm quite lenient, but if an entry is very obviously not ready, I can't post it.
No minimum reviews/star rating or any of that BS
Enter a different book with each promo if you can. Don't have a different book? Get your butt off the KB and write one!

NO COST to the author, but you MUST be willing to post to your mailing list and/or use your social media footprint to participate.

5. Register for the next promo:

Go here: http://pattyjansen.com/promo/for-authors/

Enter your email address and name. Hit "subscribe". I'll notify you when the entry form is up. I will probably also post here, but that list is how I communicate. I am lazy and don't take subscriptions through email or PM or anything like that. Because I'm  lazy. And people should read the frikken instructions :P

6. Upcoming promos:

Kindle Unlimited/Kobo double promo

Other future options:

Non-Amazon retailers, especially Kobo only promos.

7. What's in it for me:

Y'know, I'm not charging so why would I want to do this other than that I had some sort of desire to inflict self-punishment?

Well, I get all these people who have an awesome reach at Reddit, Tumblr, G+ and other sites that I don't have time for/fundamentally don't grok to promote my book there for me....

Oh, wait. That's what everyone else is getting, too!

Disclosure: I DO use my affiliate tags on the promos. That will sometimes get me enough to take my family to Maccas. Oh, wait, Amazon Affiliates still uses cheques and bank fees are like %^#(^&^$ and no I can't use gift cards for the money because I can't use them, not being in the US. So yeah, a bit of money, eventually. Nothing to write home about. Mainly the cross-promo opportunity.

8. Anything else?

Awesome! I'm thrilled I finally have a SF book out, so I can play :) Will go read the rules again (I'm slow that way).

And Patty -- huge congrats on the mega-successful BookBub ad. Yay!

PS my mailing list has some lovely people, but it's small. I'll hit Twitter, FB and BookLikes instead :)

I think you mean Bookperk. The Midlist has had Instafreebie for a while, but it looks utterly useless to me. Why should I pay $20 a month to give my books away for free???

I'd love to play this round too! Do we have to do anything if we already participated in one of your promos?

Not a thing!

Lemme finish writing this bloody book, and then I'll put up the form for the 99c promo. Everyone who participated in the previous two promos is on the list, and will get an email when the form is ready to go.

Thanks for posting this, I've signed up to the list. I've just made my first book a permafree, but I don't think Amazon.au have price-matched it yet. Do I need to get onto them about this before you'd include me or do you just use the .com version of Amazon for this?

I'm working like a mad woman on my next new release (which will be book 5 in the series of which I'll put book 1 in the 99c promo after Bookbub rejected it as freebie). Tom has already done the cover. I'll put up the form for the December promo when I can see the end of that book.

Meanwhile, the site is still registering sales for promo authors. We sold about 14-15 copies of B Kingsolver's Succubus books, and about 10 of Salvador's dragon books. Today, some of Marilyn's zombie books. It's OK if you want to have the book removed from the promo (just ask me), but unless absolutely necessary, I'd advise against it, for the above reason. When I put up the December page, the two previous promos will go under a "past promos" tab.

You can now register as reader, and if you do so, I'd love it if you ticked all the reading option you use. If possible, I'd love to run platform-specific promos.

It's been a terrible experience, Patty. Today was my highest money day ever between sales and reads. This week has exceeded some of my months this year. Please throw me in that briar patch again. :D

Patty, I received an invitation to your facebook group, but when I try to join, nothing happens. It could be my lousy internet connection, but I click on any of the three join buttons and it just stares at me like a cat that's been told 'no'.

This is weird and it must be a Facebook thing. I heard from some other people that they can't join, but there are about 35 of us there just fine. I really don't understand what's going on.

Of course FB's help function is terrible...

To join a group, the joinee must have a Facebook personal profile and I "think" the email address on file at FB must match the one you invite. That's what I think is going on here.
