eBook promotion sites

Promoting Your eBook Sale - The Big List of Ad Sites

This is my ultimate advertising sites list for bargain and free eBooks. These eBook promotion sites come and go, change their terms and prices, and gain and drop in popularity and effectiveness. I will try to update this post to keep up with those variables.

I have checked their most recent price to advertise (as of November 2017). Almost all will have requirements like minimum number of reviews, genres accepted, and discount requirements. Read the fine print. Beware of costly multi-site promotion deals for low value sites that you could enter for free yourself. Do your research on all sites. The more expensive ones aren't always better.

These are listed in order from lowest to highest Alexa number - the lowest numbers get the most traffic. However, Alexa is limited way to measure. I also checked with Google PageRank, which gives a score out of 10. If they got 1/10 or higher they will have an asterisk * after their Alexa score. Bookbub had the highest Google PageRank at 5/10. At the bottom of the list are active sites Alexa didn't list, and below that are promo sites that have stopped taking submissions. At the very bottom (just to make this REALLY long) I will put the list in alphabetical order.

I strongly suggest getting a separate email account for all author related things, because you will want to sign up for many of these newsletters to see your book on promotion day and it's ALOT of emails. I love gmail because these all go in my promotions tab (except for almighty BookBub which refuses to be regarded as spam).

There are a few I chose not to list because their website or terms were just super unprofessional-looking or my computer flagged their site (We use Disney's Circle on the teen setting). If there's a site not listed that you like, please comment!
