On this solo episode of the podcast, I’m tackling a topic that’s a little controversial in the indie children’s book world.
You may have heard other self-published authors talk about giving away copies of their book for free and wondered, “Why the heck would I want to give away the book that I put so much work into?!”
It turns out that there are several good reasons to give away your book for free from time to time, as long as you do it strategically and have specific goals and outcomes in mind before you start giving your book away.
In this episode I not only share why you should consider doing free promotions of your book, but also how to make sure you get the most out of the promotion, in terms of both short-term downloads and long-term audience-building and sales.
If you’ve wondered whether free promotions are right for you, or struggled to see how they can help grow your audience and make you more sales, this is the episode for you!
After you listen to the episode, leave me a comment and let me know what other questions you have about free promotions, or tell me your success story/horror story about a free promotion you ran! I’d love to hear about your experience with them.
