Come to FREE PAR-TAY February 2-4
In the beginning of January, we asked a select group of authors: Are you interested in spending the next three weeks working on a promotion that can change your writing career? We followed up with this bold statement. If so, Free Par- Tay is for you!
Anyone associated with book publishing knows the impact Amazon and KDP Select had on the pre- and post-Christmas sales season. It sent seismic quakes through the industry.
The Lending Library and glut of free books churned up a firestorm of reaction—but true to IBC’s entrepreneurial spirit, we saw the opportunity inherent within KDP Select and have discovered ways to capitalize on the new opportunity to control our “Free” promotions.
Thus was born Free Par-Tay!
During the Christmas season we designed a series of highly successful experiments to leverage KDP Select and the Free option. As a result, we marched nine titles into the top 100 Free Kindle books that went on to port over to the 100 TOP PAID Kindle books. That’s right, you read that correctly. TOP 100 PAID.
As of this writing, many of the books are STILL in the Top 1,000 PAID lists.
Add to that the fact that Carolyn McCray and Amber Scott, founders of Indie Book Collective, were among the top ten Kindle Owner’s Lending Library authors for December and featured in a nationwide Amazon press release, we are pretty stoked about our newest promotion Free Par-Tay!
Free Par-Tay is a groundbreaking venture to build on the power of KDP Select’s Free option and the first program to capitalize on the possibilities our prescient leaders foresaw in the KDP initiative.
On February 2-4, a carefully selected group of authors will work together to cross-promote each other’s books, and we hope raise them into the upper reaches of the bestselling lists. What’s in it for you? Come join us and get over 40 titles for FREE.
Our goal? We want to help lift the entire event’s average FREE ranking to <1,000 and PAID ranking (within 72 hours of coming off free) to <2,000.
KDP Select and the FREE Option is turning e-book publishing on its head!
Here at IBC, the Free Par-Tay is our response. We hope to rock the publishing world and make a few seismic quakes of our own!
