Molly, what has been your experience in giving your books away free? Have you been involved in any other type of giveaways and how did that work out? What was your main goal in doing this? Did you run into any obstacles?
I’ve done half a dozen free promos, and only a couple of 99 cent promos. And I’m in KDP Select, so scheduling free or 99 cent days is simple. Since December 2014 I’ve been fortunate to have been included in BookBub promotions four times. So far, they’ve only accepted my titles for free giveaways, so I have yet to try them out on a 99 cent promotion – looking forward to seeing the results of that one day.
My personal experience with free giveaways has been fabulous, but gauging success depends on an individual author’s goals. My primary objective with freebies is to build reviews, and for some reason, free giveaways generate more reviews than 99 cent promotions. My secondary goal with any promo is to sell other titles in the series, the third goal is to build my Reader’s Club email list.
