Instafreebie Group Promo FAQ

This is promotion with other authors using Instafreebie to increase our mailing list subscribers. Authors are require to share the promotion with their newsletter subscribers and social media on 1/29 -1/30, 2017. Instafreebie will be featuring our group on 1/31.

Do I qualify for this promo?

If you don’t know how to set up a mailing list (or don’t have one), then this promotion is not for you. Please note Instafreebie will be distributing your book when it sends the ebook to the reader, so if you’re in KU, this promotion is not for you either (just trying to keep you out of trouble with Amazon).

I reserve the right to reject any book with poor editing and a non-professional cover. This promo is not affiliated with Instafreebie (though I love this website for acquiring new readers).

Here are a few FAQs

1. Sign up for an Instafreebie.com account and upload the book you’re planning to give away. Select the option where the reader have to opt-in with their emails to get the free book.

If you use this sign-up link, I might get referral credits toward my account: https://www.instafreebie.com?invite_code=EBruu7Cioo 

2. The emails are not collected until after you activate the free trial. Do not use the free trial before 9/26 or you wouldn’t get access to the emails from this promo without paying for the membership.

3. I recommend activating the free trial after 1/25. Social media shares starts early once the promo page is live (thank you, author friends!). Participating authors email their newsletter either on 1/29/17 or 1/30/17. Instafreebie will feature us on 1/31/17. They do a weekly recap on 2/3/17 (so another chance for us to get subscribers).

4. You don’t need to use Mailchimp to get the emails. You can download the cvs file and import to your newsletter service of choice. I use Mailerlite.

5. Your placement on the promo page is first come first serve. Basically whoever submits their info promptly will be placed higher on the promo page. If you help with the graphics, you’ll also be placed higher.

If you don’t understand these instructions, please ask before you sign-up. It’s a waste of everyone’s time to create the promo graphics and line up social media posts with your book cover and then have you back out a week before the event.

May we all find many excited readers!
