Promotions for the Guild of Epic Authors
Hello fellow authors. I will be continuously running group author promotions for mailing list growth/gaining subscribers, sales and free book downloads on the major retailers. I do not host Instafreebie promotions or accept books with covers that feature men without shirts. All the promotions are free right now, except for the giveaways which require a small fee to cover the prizes and shipping. Every promotion is powered by a group of authors sharing with their mailing lists and social media contacts.
The giveaways are run on KingSumo to maximize the viral sharing and are usually comprised of about 12 authors. Signing up for every authors’ mailing list is the only entry option and then the entrant will be prompted to share the giveaway through their social networks. At the end of the contest, each participating author will receive a CSV of all the email addresses that entered the contest. There is a small fee that is determined by the cost of the prize(s). These promotions have been averaging a fraction of a penny per subscriber and have cost the participating authors less than a penny per sub on every single giveaway so far.

ONE DAY POWER PROMOTIONS
Every author sends the promotion out to their newsletter for a big day of possible sales. You enter a book and I set up a landing page and provide a graphic banner to use. These have been doing really well with several authors logging over 30 sales from the promotion. With that said, those books were priced at 99 cents, had incredible covers and great blurbs. The series/box set deals have done extremely well. I use affiliate links to track sales if you were wondering where I get the figures.
Themes for One Day Power Promos-Graphics will have dates adjusted for each promotion.
