SPONSOR FAQ

Q: How does this work?

Although we have a lot of info to offer on this page, it’s really very simple. When you buy a sponsorship, that money goes toward the prize we offer to our readers (as well as our small staff). We set up a giveaway that our subscribers enter to win the prize–a Kindle or a $100 Paypal Cash. To enter this giveaway, they do something for you, such as following you on twitter, liking your Facebook page, or agreeing to subscribe to your mailing list. We handle all of the set up and promotion, so this is really a “set it and go” promotion. And don’t forget, unlike other services that only promote your book for one day, we promote your your book via our giveaway for one week, and via Twitter to 100,000 subscribers for a month! This is quite the bargain when you consider our prices start at $10!

 

Q: I purchased a Sponsorship. Now what?

You should receive an auto-generated email within minutes that includes a link to the sign up form for your sponsorships. This will go to the email you used as your login account with our website. If you don’t see the email and have already checked your “spam” and “others” folder, please email freekindlegiveaways@gmail.com for support.

 

Q: What does my Free Kindle Giveaway feature include?

Our Bronze, Silver, and Gold packages all includes ongoing tweets for the duration of the month about your book, to our 100,000+ bookish Twitter followers. You will also be featured in our mailing list (6,500 and growing) on the day the giveaway kicks off. In addition to that, you will see your book featured on our blog along with the other sponsors. Finally, your twitter, facebook, or mailing list will be on a rafflecopter we create that people can enter to win a free kindle. This helps you build your audience.

For our Platinum Giveaway, you will be included in a smaller pool of authors, with part of your payment being creditable toward a donation based on the participant of our subscribers. You will still be featured on our blog and on our giveaway form, and entries count toward a bigger donation to that giveaway’s featured charity. You will automatically receive the emails of all the entrants (800-1000 subscribers on average) as well as an increased number of Twitter or Facebook followers. This service is a lot like getting TWO silver sponsorships, but will higher activity for you, and more encouragement from us to readers to buy your book.

 

Q: What will I receive with a BOOST added to my Free Kindle Giveaway Feature Package?

Your book will additionally be featured on our Facebook page with a paid boost, and you will receive a higher priority within your tier on the Rafflecopter.

Q: What is the difference between Gold, Silver, and Bronze?

We have 3 tiers. Gold ($50 before boost), Silver ($20 before boost), and Bronze ($10 before boost).

Every month, we have ONE Gold spot. This at the very top of everything–mailing list, blog post, rafflecopter. This spot is worth “5 points” on the rafflecopter. (Gold Waiting List Form)

Every month, we have TWENTY Silver spots. These books are below the gold spot, but above the bronze spots on the rafflecopter. They are worth 2 points without a boost or 3 points with a boost.

Every month, we have TWENTY-NINE Bronze spots. These books are at the below the silver spots. They are worth 1 point without a boost or 2 points with a boost.

The Boost is an ADD ON to the sponsorship, not to be purchased separately.

Please Note for BRONZE and SILVER tiers: On the rafflecopter, books are listed in first come, first served (within their tier and with boost factored in–the more points, the higher you are in your tier, even if you signed up later). On our mailing list, books are featured within their tier based on design and layout, not based on sign up order. On our blog, we base on design and layout only and do not factor in tier aside from the gold spot. This is to provide a variety of ways for our readership to peruse the titles, and this technique is known to improve the odds of someone buying a book. For example, we had one author write us regarding her book was lower in a blog post one month from the next–but she actually sold MORE copies through us that month, according to the affiliate links we use to track sales.
