Sponsored posts are a great way to advertise your book in a natural sounding way that doesn’t come across as “sales-y.” The Book Review Directory, since starting in 2015, has seen over 94,000 visitors and 240,000 page views and is supported by a social media account with over 6,000 followers.
“Deciding to set up promotion posts with BRD was a no-brainer. Not only are they easy to work with, the options they offer ensured I got a post that best matched my needs. I’ve been impressed with this website for a while and have seen the interaction that happens here. I had no doubt my content would be noticed.” -Allison Maruska, author of The Fourth Descendant
The benefits of our sponsored posts are:
- The entire post is exclusively about your book. Your book won’t get buried under a dozen others within the same post, like it might with other services.
- Your post includes a purchase link so readers can acquire it
- There is no requirement for your book to be priced a certain amount (e.g. no free or $0.99 price requirement)
- You receive a longer area to showcase a sample/excerpt of your book than most other services
- Our sponsored posts featuring your book are shareable via social media, whereas most other services (especially the newsletter based ones) are not
- The author receives long-term benefit of their sponsored post even after the initial posting, as readers still find the post via search results and BRD’s website archive tool
- Each post will generate a social media shout-out, featuring your book on Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr to over 6,000 combined followers
