When @free_book_promo followed me on Twitter, of course I checked the Twitter bio to see what this was about. And I immediately clicked through to the link in the bio (see at end of post).
Although at first I wondered what was “in it” for the Ask David site owner if this opportunity was free, I decided to submit one of my books and see what I thought.
I have now submitted my novel MRS. LIEUTENANT, and I so far like what I have discovered.
Here is just some of the information from the site:
- askDavid.com has a Google PageRank of 5 (PR5) (higher is better) that means that this site is considered of high importance by search engines.
- askDavid.com has an Alexa Rank of 121,269 (lower is better) that means that this site gets a lot of visitors – great for book publicity.
- We are an Amazon Associate. If a visitor of our site follows our link to your book’s Amazon page and buys your book we receive a small commission paid by Amazon. Please note that this does not take away from your royalties! This business model enables us to provide our service to you for free and guarantees you that we do our best in promoting your books since we won’t get paid if we don’t sell your books.
This last information blurb does explain what is “in it” for this site.
I particularly appreciate the kind of information that one can include for a submitted book — much more complete than what one can currently submit for a book on Amazon. And, yes, my ebooks can continue to be sold only on Kindle per my choice of using the KDP Select option.
(One thing I need to ask about: The words “online marketing” in my novel’s description are linked to another book on the site that is about online marketing. While I would normally be fine with this, because I have my own online marketing books on Amazon, I will be submitting those to this site and requesting that, if possible, my books be linked to instead of the current book.)
Now click here to read the Ask David site information carefully. Then submit your books, and share with your online connections.
