Recently, a question came up on the Goodreads forum about why people hired on Fiverr usually do promos for free books?
I speculated that a lot of them will only promote “FREE” books because there are lots of lists available online that this Fiverr person can fill in forms for free promotion on your behalf.
If the book isn’t free, it is much more difficult for them to do promotions. They would actually need to take more time to contact people and convince them to do book promos.
Generally, promoting a free book by filling in forms only takes a few minutes and they don’t have to negotiate.
If you are running a promotion for your book and giving it away for free for a few days or forever, you can post the links online to various sites yourself to spread the word. Or you can hire someone to do it for $5 as well.
Here is a list of 72 sites for promoting free ebooks to get you started along with Facebook, Twitter advice::
Another one at Indies Limited:
If you google “list kindle free promotion” you will find several more sites. Of course, some of the sites listed may be the same over and over again.
Good luck on your freebie campaign!
