What are FOLLOW and NEW RELEASE notifications? These are free services Book Cave provides for all authors. How it works is easy. Readers follow you, either because they discovered you on Book Cave or because they followed a link you posted on social media or in your newsletter. Then every time you promote a book with us or whenever you let us know about a new release, we’ll email those followers.
Read on to discover the advantages of having lots of followers . . .
Your Retailer Deals Will Reach More Readers
Sometimes readers who love your books will be distracted and not immediately open a regular email, but on the day you feature a book with us, those who have followed you will get a notification that you have a new deal. This means that even if they are not signed up to receive your genre or content rating—or who aren’t signed up to the daily deals email at all—they still receive your retailer promotions in a separate email.
New Release Notifications Reach More Readers
New release notifications are separate from our regular retailer deals and from our subscriber magnets. With these notifications, you can promote pre-orders, which we don’t do with our other services. You can also promote books that have been released within the last 30 days.
The emails for new releases only go to your followers on Book Cave. In other words, every reader who receives that email has chosen to hear from you specifically, and they are very likely to buy your book! So build up those followers!
Keep in mind that readers must be following your profile to receive these emails. We’ve let our readers know about this opportunity, and some readers will find you through our site, but you’ll find the most readers by asking current readers or fans to follow you. Send out invitations on social media and in your newsletters. Let them know they can immediately see any deals you have going on your author page (retailer or magnet deals). Followers can also connect with your social media through your profile, comment on books, and submit their own content ratings. Readers love to support the authors they love and it’s a cool way to sell more books without saying “Buy my book!”
Let Us Know About Your New Releases!
We can only send out new release notifications if we know your book is a new release! So when submitting a book, whether it is for a promotion, to My Book Ratings, or just to your dashboard, make sure to check the “New Release” box on the last page of the submission form to let us know that your book is a new release.
