Where do readers go for bargain books?
I used to go to the Bargain Table at the bookstore. You never know what you might find. But now it’s digital and they’re culled for you into categories and they’re all on sale (or just at permanent low prices).
Where do they gather their lists of bargain books? Why from authors who are looking for readers, of course!
It’s a beautifully-matched system at heart:
Match up authors who are looking for readers with readers who are looking for (bargain) books.
It’s simple and genius at the same time.
I took the plunge and had my book, The Secret of Markree Castle, listed with Bargain Booksy today. I’m going to find out more and more how it works and what it means, if anything, for book sales.
For Writers looking to promote their books
Bargain Booksy has a mailing list of more than 200,000 readers hungry for discount books. If you, as a writer, ever wondered, “I know there are readers out there who want to read my books, but I don’t know how to find them.” this is one way to find them. Here’s their sales pitch to sell more books:
If you are planning to discount your book (or if your book is already priced between $0.99 and $5), the Bargain Booksy Feature is for you. With over 230,300 registered users a Bargain Booksy feature can help you to drive sales of your book, find a new audience of readers, generate reviews for your book, and improve your book rank on retail sites.
Is it a smart move for a writer? Is your list 200,000+ full of hungry readers? I think it’s worth a shot. We’ll see how it goes.
