What are AXP newsletter cross-promotion events?
There are a million variables that can help make the most of a newsletter cross-promotion. AuthorsXP.com organizes cross-promotion events that take simple author/author swaps to the next level!Instead of posting a single author's book in your newsletter, when participating in one of our events, you add a Giveaway announcement containing graphics and text (provided by AuthorsXP.com) in your newsletter.
What's in it for me?
- You get to work with multiple authors all working together
- At the end of the event you're provided with the email list of people who entered the giveaway growing your list by leaps and bounds
- Readers get a chance to win your books by providing this email, following you on Twitter and other tasks
- Your book is permanent listed in AuthorsXP.com's book list
- Your novel is exposed to thousands of new readers
- Unlike one-time promotional mailings, you can continue to market to these readers in the future
- The event can be combined with price reductions and promotions to push sales during the event
What is my commitment?All you need to do in order to particpate in one of these powerful marketing events is:
- Join AuthorsXP.com for free.
- Fill out a form letting us know what book you want to promote, what genre, etc. (you can find links to this form under each upcoming event announcement.)
- Add your book to our book database. (you may also add all your books)
- Each event is different, but usually you'll agree to gift 3+ people a free Kindle copy of your book once winners are drawn. Some events may include other monetary gifts for readers which the participating authors will share.
- There is a fee for participating which covers our work organizing the event, creating graphics for the newsletters, etc. Because AuthorsXP was created by an author, the fee is kept low!
In a nutshell, you could gain hundreds or even thousands of new followers/fans/readers for the cost of a small fee and the donation of a few books.
What if I don't like the other books being offered in my promotion?
You can opt out. The other authors participating will be posted for you to see.
Do I have to talk to other participating authors and arrange anything?
Nope. We do all that.
Do you provide graphics/code/text for my newsletter?
Yep! All you'll need to do is cut and paste it into your newsletter mailing.
I don't have a newsletter. Can I still join?
At this time, no. It wouldn't be fair to the other authors bringing newsletter lists to the table.
