Hello author! What do you need?
AUTHORS SPECIAL OPP - GIANT Mailing List Builder/Sales Event!! March 6-12
- This is a Mailing List Builder/Book Fair event with extra prizes for readers
- ALL GENRES WELCOME
- Readers will be asked to choose their favorite genres and you'll be given the full list - you can choose which readers you want to keep and which wouldn't enjoy your work. (I wouldn't suggest a sweet romance author use the sci-fi portion of the list, for example...)
- This event will be advertised more heavily than the usual events.
- The graphic you see here I just quickly mocked up for this email - there will be more items to win, but definitely at least one Kindle Paperwhite
- Part of the thrill for readers will be FREE and 99c books available to the entrants in the Book Fair after they enter
- You don't have to have a book on special during that week to participate.
All regular Mailing List Builder rules apply - you'll be asked to promote the event in your own newsletters and to gift three winners an ebook of your choice at the end.
GREAT opportunity to also add your FREE/99c books to the Book Fair as well so you can get the list AND sell books!
I want to try and make this super fun and exciting of course, and am working on ways to make it stand out among other giveaways - if you have any thoughts along those lines, please feel free to share them as well!

Identifying and Refining Your Audience
Surveys & Polls
Poll readers (from your genre or broad) with questions any time you like to gain valuable insight and discover why they buy your books or why they don’t. Use surveys to refine your marketing, develop keyword lists for click-ads, or help you to write a marketing plan.
Test Cover and Blurb Variations
Our surveys and polls also allow you to bounce cover designs and blurbs off hundreds of readers.
Gain More Followers
Build Your Newsletter List
The number one thing you can do for yourself as an author (as a person, it might be a weekly massage, who knows...) is build your personal newsletter list. Imagine having thousands and thousands of fans at your fingertips, every time you launch a new book?
AXP can help you gain folllowers on BookBub, Amazon, Twitter, Facebook and for your own newsletter lists. Once you get 1K followers on Bookbub, you can also send powerful Bookbub Preorder Alerts, so building followers is more than just feeling popular!
A street team helps an author hype his or her books. They come in especially handy during giveaways and new book launches. Nothing like having your own dedicated team of fans! AXP can help you build that team.
AXPBooks.com Daily Deal Newsletters: Promote Sales, Freebies, New Releases, Pre-Releases, KU and More
With every promotion, AXP's Daily Deal Newsletter is ready to be sent to 25k readers (more or less, depending on genre). Just submit your deal to the Daily Deal Machine and we'll do the rest!
Author Spotlights are like Daily Deal Newsletter emails (they're sent to 25k +/-), except you and your series are the ONLY books featured! Great for giving a whole series a boost or to help sell a new book and hook new readers. Here's a quote from one author: "The spotlight feature was great, btw--70 books sold and 50 preorders!"
AXP Book Fair
Every week AXP brings hundreds/thousands of genre specific readers to our mailing list giveaway events. After entering the event, these readers are funnelled to the AXP BOOK FAIR and presented with FREE & 99c books. Be sure yours is there!
Newsletter Swap Club
Imagine every time you had a price promotion, other authors promoted it in their newsletters? This is a great way for us all work together to promote our books -- all while creating value for our own readers by offering them deals in our newsletters!
