Book Funnel: Get Sharing
Book Funnel is something I’ve been using for a while now, and whenever I discover a new tool that I feel offers value for money or some indispensable service, I feel compelled to share it with people. I’m not making any money for promoting the service, and am doing so purely as a recommendation. So what is Book Funnel?
Book Funnel is an online platform that costs a small subscription fee, but allows you to upload your ebooks and easily share with them with your readers via a web link. The beauty of the service is that the link will take the user to a page with multiple options for how they would like to download the books – mobi, epub, pdf. It automates the process of getting the book onto the reader’s devices and also deals with any technical support that might arise. Basically, it allows you to offer freebies and advanced reader copies easily and in a manner that allows you to just post the link and forget about it. Want to offer one of your books free to all platforms for 24 hours? Then stick it on Book Funnel and share the link all over Social Media (Amazon KDP Select is generally fine with marketing efforts so don’t worry about exclusivity, although don’t quote me on it).
Here is what a reader encounters when they follow your link (you can test it yourself on the website via a sample).
And from there, the user picks the option most suited to them and follows the simple wizard that will get the book onto their devices. I’ve said before that giving away free books is a must for new authors as the number one priority in the early stages is discoverability. The beauty of Book Funnel is that its built on a pay scale. If you only have a few dozen downloads each month then the cost is nominal. I would also recommend it to established authors too, as it is indispensable in conjunction with a newsletter. Give subscribers free books for signing up, and use Book Funnel to offer them a flawless and professional service.
