Best Ebook Promotion SitesAll self published authors know that finishing your book is only part of the battle. . . you now have to make sure people read it. One of the most effective ways to promote an ebook is to harness the power of established book promotion sites and tap into their readership.

Some of the best book promotion sites through 2016 and 2017 are listed here. We’ve used each of them to promote our own books (Hey! We’re authors too after all!) and we’ve only listed the ones that we’ve had good results with, and we’ve included our review of each of them. Some of them promote Kindle books exclusively, and some promote all the ebook formats (Kindle, Nook, iTunes, Smahswords, Kobo etc.). Some of them promote free books only, some will promote your book when it’s on sale, and some will promote when you have a new release, so you should have no trouble finding a promotions group that matches your chosen price point, format, as well as your budget and your goals for ebook marketing.

Book Marketing: Promote your Free Book to 30+ Sites at Once!

Book Marketing ToolsBook marketing Tools is not, strictly speaking, a promotion site. But it DOES have a program that let’s you promote your free Kindle book to over 30 sites that don’t charge for promotion at the click of a button.

With their ebook submission tool, you fill out the details of your Kindle promotion in a single form, and then the information gets auto-filled for each of the 30+ sites that you want to submit your book to.

The charge for this service is $30 (so about a buck for each site you submit to) and for most authors, it’s better to just spend the $30 and submit to them all at once, rather than spending 3 hours or more trying to submit to each one individually. (Believe me, we’ve tried!)

At the moment, their service is ONLY if your book is free, so if you’re planning on running a 99c promotion, then you’ll need to promote through one of the other book marketing websites listed.

We’ve made a video below of how it all works.

To use their book promotion service, just CLICK HERE and select either Login, or Sign Up.

BookBub_logoWith almost 3 million Facebook fans and significantly more than that in email subscribers, Book Bub is the undisputed heavy hitter in the ebook promotions game. BookBub’s pricing varies based on the number of subscribers in the particular category that you want to advertise your book in, as well as the the price you want to advertise it for. At the low end, a free book in the small Humor category will cost only $50, whereas a promotion for a $2.99 book in the Crime Fiction category will set you back a hefty $2,350 (which is a fair chunk of change even for arguably the best e-book service available at the moment).

Despite the potentially high price tag for a promotion, and the fact that BookBub promo codes or BookBub coupon codes that offer discounts are also completely unheard of, a BookBub promotion is almost unanimously considered by authors to be an excellent investment. Many authors show a ROI (Return On Investment) of 200% on this ebook promotion site, and sometimes significantly higher.

It’s not all as easy as it sounds however: BookBub has notoriously strict submission guidelines, and even when those guidelines are met, the fact that BookBub only accepts about 10% of submissions means most authors will struggle to get approved.

You can Submit your book to BookBub here.

They also offer 66% discounts if you’re self-published or with a smaller publishing house. .  but the Big 5 publishers still have to pay full price.

We chose the $50 Silver package for our test, and we made our book free on Amazon Kindle for the full 5 days allowed by Kindle Direct Publishing during every 3 month period.

We ended up with almost 1,700 downloads over the 5 days, which was a very good result for such a small outlay.
