Promoting your book can be a pain in the butt. But did you know that there are actually sites that can help you with this and can boost your sales, launches, free promotions, series promotions, and mailing list? Below you will find a list of the best paid AND free promo sites.
What are promo sites?
Promo sites work like this: authors pay a fee to have their book listed in the daily offers – usually sent out by email – and they get lots of sales or downloads in return. Readers get freebies and discounts, and the author’s book jumps into the charts. It’s a win-win.
They work the best when you stack them
This means that you might want to run multiple of these promo’s on the same day. However, don’t make the mistake of running them all on the same day. Do spread them out a bit over the course of one or two weeks.
Promo sites to promote your free book
Free promos are often the easiest and cheapest to put together, and the greatest return in terms of just getting your books into readers’ hands.

BKNights ($5+$5 to be featured in the email, which is the good part)
