I've recently moved my latest book into KDP, it's my first experience of KU. More numbers to watch!Anyone have any recommendations on places to advertise directly to KU users?
Cheers xx

What you can do if you have facebook, there are several Kindle Unlimited groups.  Join some of them. 

Why do you want to target only borrowers? 
Do you not want sales?
I know more readers that are not KU subscribers than are KU subscribers. 
Even though you are in Select, all Amazon customers have access to your book, not just the subscribers.   

I hope this helps.

There are various FB groups for advertising KU books, but I run one, and have to honestly say, I think it's made up almost entirely of other authors. I've posted several times in the group for authors to please share the page with their readers so that there is a better mix, but very few do. I guess nobody wants to be the one to ask readers to join? I got a few of my readers/friends to sign up the first week I started it, going by members who have asked to join, they are almost all authors.

Mary, is yours an open or closed group?

It's a public group but I have to approve members. (just to stop people from trying to sell sunglasses and shoes). Membership has been climbing a lot faster over the last month. It took months to reach 200 members, but then that more than doubled in the last six weeks or so.

Thanks Yoda, I've joined a couple of groups on FB, I'll try to search out more. I already advertise on there to general amazon paid customers, it's more that I've not used KU before so am interested in how to reach its users specifically. I figured that the improved rank from KU lends would increase visibility to paying customers too.

I'm not Yoda. I am the smiley. Yoda is much smarter than I am.

Hey Mary, I'm on your site. Until now with no KU in Canada, I've had no friends to share it with! But KU is here now so that's a good reminder that groups like this will be useful here now.

That said, I agree that the majority of these sites seem to be made up of other authors. But hey, we read too!

When did CA get KU? I was pleasantly surprised the other day when I had a borrow there.
