FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why do I want to grow an email list?
A high-quality email list of readers is one of the greatest assets in any author’s online marketing toolkit. With an email list, authors have control — you can directly connect with readers, highlight your books, and turn them into lifelong fans.
How many email subscribers should I expect?
While the numbers vary by contest, our normal range is approximately 600 – 1,200 emails per author, with reported email open rates of more than 50 percent.
Are your promotions GDPR compliant?
Yes! Our promotions have been and will continue to be GDPR compliant. (Details here.)
Readers have to check boxes by the names of the authors whose lists they want to join, indicating consent, and must also check a box indicating they acknowledge they will be receiving newsletter / marketing emails from them.
We will also be including relevant documentation in the files we distribute after the contest ends, as part of a new “GDPR Kit” for authors involved in our promotions.
What is your cancellation / refund policy?
In the event of a cancellation, a 100% refund of payment will be issued in all cases if requested prior to the author sign-up deadline, as stated on the contest sign-up page. If a cancellation is requested after the sign-up deadline expires, a 50% refund will be provided.
Am I eligible to participate?
How do I deliver my book to the two winners?
For indie authors, we recommend offering ebooks via BookFunnel.
