Reader Magnet Giveaway: Summer Thrills: Mysteries and Thrillers

Summer Thrills: Mysteries & Thrillers (Reader Magnet Giveaway: August 2017)

Promotional Details

You Are Invited!

To celebrate the summer, here’s a huge opportunity for mystery & thriller authors to give readers a chance to enjoy one of your books (or a sample) for free as soon as they join your mailing list. (For best results, a full ebook is recommended if possible.)

We’ll feature your book’s cover on a contest page with a link to your mailing list sign up form — or a landing page on a 3rd party site like BookFunnel or Instafreebie — where readers can enter their email to be signed up directly for your mailing list in exchange for a free ebook or ebook sample.

Books will be organized by genre or sub-genre, and your book cover will be featured in your section. Every section will also have it’s own page and link, so that it can be promoted individually.

Note: This promotion will be complemented by a significant advertising budget, along with promotion to our mailing list and social media audiences.

How it Works:

  • Contest dates: Monday, August 14 to Monday, September 11.
  • Free books for all: Readers enter their email on our site to “unlock” a page filled with free ebooks in their favorite genres which they can receive by signing up for the participating author email lists. Books will be organized by genre, and your book cover will be featured in your section. Every genre will have it’s own page, so that you can promote it individually.
  • Grand prize winners: Number of contest winners will be determined based on the number of authors participating. Prizes will include e-readers and book store gift cards.
  • Sign-up link: Your book cover will link to a page you provide (BookFunnel, Instafreebie, Email List Signup Page, etc.) where readers can sign up for your email list directly to receive the free ebook or sample you are promoting.
  • Promotion: The contest will be promoted to our email list, via Facebook Ads, and on our growing Facebook page. Readers who enter the promotion will also receive reminders to check out additional books as the promo goes on.

You Get:

  • Facebook Ads to encourage new readers to sign up for the sweepstakes
  • Contest graphics, as well as social media and newsletter promo templates
  • Reminder and tip emails to guarantee you’re fully prepared 
  • A great opportunity to familiarize new readers with you and your work
