A couple days ago we sent an email through Amazon to all our published authors announcing the availability of Royal Flush (our new anthology featuring over 40 of our published authors) on Amazon.
The Featured Book-of-the-Week email looked like this:
Clicking on any of the links in the email took you to the book on Amazon, making it very easy to purchase. Amazon offers this functionality for free from the “Share” link on every book’s detail page, and we encourage all authors to use it for their book promotion.
The hard part is coming up with a large enough recipient list to make the tactic really effective, and that’s where our Featured Book-of-the-Week option comes in.
If we get enough interest from our valued family of published authors, we are considering adding a new Featured Book-of-the-Week option as a new marketing tactic. Every Friday, our published authors would receive an email spotlighting a FEATURED BOOK-OF-THE-WEEK that is available on Amazon for purchase. This would allow our authors to see new books coming out by Outskirts Press authors.
This option would also allow participating authors the opportunity to promote their published books to an ever growing list of writers/readers.
Help us determine if this is an option you would like added to the Outskirts Press list of post-publication marketing services by answering this quick poll:
