THIS ONE IS FOR CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE AUTHORS
LOOKING TO BUILD THEIR NEWSLETTER AUDIENCE.
In late 2016, we started test driving a new promotion design combining elements of other promotions we’ve seen run a million times. Our clients were happy with the results, so we’ve decided to offer one every month for all of 2017. If you’re looking for an affordable way to build your newsletter audience and be showcased to a whole new audience, this might be the promotion you’re looking for.
Oct 2016 – Paranormal Romance Theme
16,000+ Overall Entries | 800+ Newsletter Signups
Nov 2016 – Urban Fantasy Theme
9,000+ Overall Entries | 500+ Newsletter Signups
First and foremost, we want to clarify that these promotions are not *blog* tours. In the simplest terms, these promotions will be two separate components running side-by-side: a Rafflecopter giveaway and distribution of the genre-themed sampler. Additional marketing measures (i.e. HeadTalker campaigns, Facebook ads, Facebook sharing, blogger support, Facebook ads, etc.) are used to boost the promotion.
The giveaway has one mandatory entry point: to sign up for a newsletter master list. From there, additional entry points are unlocked. Sampler & Sponsor authors are provided with a copy of the newsletter master list at the end of their promotion.
The promotions require very little interaction from the participating authors. See the Participation Requirements section of the Terms & Details document for details on what is required.
The goal of this promotion type is cross-promotion of audiences and to grow your newsletter mailing lists.
The Rafflecopter giveaway starts on the 1st of each month at 12:00am EST, and they end on the last day of the month at 11:59pm EST. The Giveaway winners are chosen at random via Rafflecopter. The giveaways are open to US and Canada shipping addresses only. The mandatory entry point for the giveaway is to sign up for a newsletter master list which will be distributed to all Sampler and Sponsor Authors.
There are three opportunities for authors to buy into this promo type: sampler authors ($200), sponsor authors ($100), and featured authors ($10). Sampler Author and Sponsor Author registrations both include a free 2-day listing for a free or discount book (<$2.99) in Paranormal And Urban Fantasy Bargains and/or Pure Textuality PR Post, and a free Pure Textuality PR social media blitz for any one title or series.
