The BookBuzzr Newsletter
Welcome to the July edition of the BookBuzzr monthly newsletter. We'd like to make some important announcements before we give you the lists of top BookBuzzr books for the month of June.
Announcing the Launch of the World's Biggest Free Book-Winning Site
We're super-excited to let you know that our vision of building the World's Biggest Free Book-Winning Site targeted towards book-lovers has become reality. We now list over 300 books on the Freado.com
site. No other book contest or book giveaway site comes close to this number! Genuine book lovers play games on the Freado.com site for a chance to win the books listed on the site.
How Freado.com Helps You Market Your Book
, users play games (featuring our patent-pending technology) in which they memorize book covers. The game is a variant of the regular card game, in which players memorize cards and match them in pairs. Once a user wins a set number of points, s/he can bid for prizes, including best-sellers, Kindles and iPads. So there are big incentives for book lovers to play these games. If you sign up for the game, your book cover will be displayed in the game, meaning your book cover will be burned into the brains of those playing the game. This naturally works as a great marketing tool and makes your book cover familiar to a wide audience. We've called the game CoverMatcher, and you can play the game on Freado.com - and bid for prizes yourself!
What do you get for $4.79 per month?
Your book-cover will be memorized a minimum of a 100 times every month by showing up in 100 CoverMatcher games on Freado.com. And the system is designed to show your book to genuine book readers who may be interested in your book category.
This is very different from the idea of advertising your book on Facebook, or through banner ads. In most of those other systems, your target market may skip looking at your book information. On Freado.com, your target market actively looks at and memorizes your book cover so that they can match it with it's pair in the shortest possible time.
We are pleased to offer you the opportunity to now promote your book through BookBuzzr Games (the technology that markets your book through games on Freado) at an introductory price of just $4.79 per month. As a special, the first month is completely free when you subscribe. Several authors have already signed up for this offer. You can join them too!
To start promoting your book through the game on Freado or to just see a free demo of how your book looks inside the game, go to www.bookbuzzr.com
, login and click on the "Subscribe to BookBuzzr Games" link.
Congratulations to the Winner of the First Kindle
We're also pleased to let you know that Michelle Cary
has become the winner of the first Kindle on Freado.com. Michelle is a writer of romance books and played the CoverMatcher game on Freado as a way to take a break from her writing. We'll be posting a picture of Michelle with her new Kindle on the Freado site and on our blog in a few days. Keep checking!
Another winner - Mary Muhammad
said about Freado, "I was so excited to win my first book "Little Bee" by Chris Cleeve, which was not only on the best sellers list of the New York Times, but a choice for Oprahs' book club! I enjoy the game because, it also gives you chance to win great prizes like a Kindle, which I hope to win as well. I highly recommend Freado and its book match game to any lover of books!"
You can see a list of other winners on the Freado home page.
