Besides Goodreads and similar sites, are there good ways to promote Kindle books?

6 replies
Well, I've been reading that Goodreads is a good way to build an author brand. I've also read that there are sites that are similar to Good Reads that enable you to build a fan base regarding your Kindle book.

Outside of the Goodreads model, are there other websites that use different models that enable authors to showcase their books? I'm not talking about asking people to review your books. I'm just talking about like showcasing your book and not being labeled as a spammer.

    You can find best selling authors in your niche on Amazon and contact them regarding solo ads

    Many of the top non-fiction authors have mailing lists

    Ask if they can promote your free Kindle book (Free during KDP Select promo days)

    Since a lot of sub-niche authors don't routinely sell solo ads, you might not have to spend too much money promoting your book.

    You can also hire a VA to do blogger outreach.

    I would check out the various Facebook groups and communities that allow you to post a link to your Kindle book (usually when you are doing a free promo).

    Facebook is another option if you can spare the time. This is great for promoting your KDP free days.

    Twitter doesn't seem to convert the same however
