The BookBuzzr Newsletter
Woody Allen once quipped that "80 percent of life is showing up."
As you know by now, book promotion requires constant, persistent, daily effort. At BookBuzzr, our primary goal is to help make that effort easier, more automated and low-priced.
Keeping these principles in mind, we've now introduced automatic exposures of your book and associated details on Freado pages. We've created a new section on book and author profiles with the heading 'Suggested Books
'. In this section, we show the books of BookBuzzr Author Pro and Author Pro Plus
subscribers. Our targeting algorithm ensures that your book is shown only to readers from your specific genre on Freado.com.
Apart from this, your book details also show up on the popular BookBuzzr blog
which is mostly frequented by authors and people from the publishing industry. It is a known fact that authors and people associated with the publishing business are among some of the most voracious book buyers in the world. And by showing up your book on the BookBuzzr blog, we're promoting your book to this important audience.
If you are a BookBuzzr Author Pro subscriber
, you don't need to do anything. Simply stay tuned to start receiving the monthly reports that shows how many times your book was shown in the ads. While we try to accomodate every book in these ads, please be aware that if you are a BookBuzzr Author Pro Plus subscriber your book will receive about 4 times as much exposure as a BookBuzzr Pro Subscriber.
If you have not yet tried a BookBuzzr Author Pro subscription, do give it a spin. It is free for the first month and you can can cancel at anytime at no extra charge.
