    Promote Your Amazon Book For Free

    Discussion in 'Announcements' started by Daniel, Jul 1, 2016.

    As our ten year anniversary month comes to a close, I wanted to end it by giving something back to the community.

    Eligible members who have a book or other publication available on Amazon may submit their writing for free promotion on WritingForums.org.

    The advertisement will be in the form of a 250x250 sidebar banner and potentially other sizes/locations. Your promotion will run for at least 30 days and will rotate with other banners. You must be registered for at least 30 days and have made at least 100 posts to qualify.

    Note that WritingForums.org may earn a small commission from any books sold, just as we do in the Bookstore.

    There are two ways to submit your publication:

    1. Submit it as a Resource in the Member Publications Directory

    This is the preferred option because it provides extra information about your publication, allows you to list other purchase options, allows you to maintain and update it, and because it is easily discovered on our site. Additionally, books listed in the Member Publications Resource section will be much more likely to receive future benefits and promotions because they already exist in a public directory.

    You can find the Member Publication category under Bookstore > Member Publications or by clicking here. To submit your book, navigate to any desired sub-category and click the "Add Resource" button, or click here.

    If you would like a more detailed guide, review the screenshots in the Adding a Member Publication Resource FAQ.

    2. Message Me Directly

    If you prefer an easier option or if you don't want your writing associated with your username, you can send me a PM. This option may take longer for me to review and set up, but it's still available. Be sure to include a direct link to the specific publication you want promoted.

    Over the past few days you may have noticed the "Member Publications" sidebar section on the forum homepage and other areas of the site. It's been a long time coming, but this promotion is currently active and running!

    If your book is available on Amazon in print, digital, or audio, then you're eligible for free promotion on WritingForums.org. All you need to do is add your book to our Member Publication's section on the writing resources tab.

    ADD YOUR AMAZON BOOK OR E-BOOK HERE

    Include basic information such as title, description, ISBN number, and available purchase links. It's best to make this page as detailed and professional as possible - it's your sales page.

    Every few days this resource section will be reviewed and new member publications will be added to our advertisement rotation, as seen below.

    Currently, this is limited to forum members with 100+ posts. If you haven't reached that threshold yet, that's okay - add your book to the Member Publications section anyway and you'll be eligible for free promotion once you meet the conditions. Changes to this promotion will eventually be made, but for now, this is essentially free, unlimited promotion.

    You don't really want to give @TWErvin2 a monopoly on free book advertisements, do you? ;)

    I can't see it... Have you taken it down temporarily (for whatever reason) or can I just not see it?

    @Komposten Right now it's set up not to show for Supporters because it can be considered an advertisement. If a purchase is made the site would earn a small commission. I do think it's somewhat different since we're promoting members of the community - this is actually something I was going to bring up in the Supporter's forum.

    Ah, okay. That makes sense. Yeah, it's probably a good idea to ask the supporters about it.
