For greater visibility, our promotion plus plan adds the following:
- Amazon optimization – your keywords and categories will be researched and selected for maximum exposure at the world’s largest bookstore. This will result in higher Amazon rankings; our goal is to have your book appear in the top 100-500 in 2 categories.
- Online promotions – including email blasts, sales promotions, Kindle countdowns and more. Your book will be included in Red Penguin Book email blasts, along with other book promotions, such as Kindle Book Promos, Book Circle, Publishers Weekly, Book Bub, and others. While we cannot guarantee acceptance into any one particular promotion, you are guaranteed at least 10 online promotions during the promotional period.
- Book reviews – numerous reviews often signal the difference between a book that doesn’t move and a “hot item”. Our Promotion Plus package guarantees 5 book reviews for your book.
- Social Media – your book will be promoted on over 50 social media book sites. These can be timed during your launch period, a price promotion period, or simultaneously (we recommend launching with a price promotion to build excitement and an audience for your book.)
Our Silver package costs just $950 for 90 days for Red Penguin authors and can be repeated for an additional 90 days for just $500. For authors whose books were not published by Red Penguin Books, the Silver Package – which includes the Bronze Package – is available for just $1200 for 90 days, and can be repeated for 90 days for just $500. (The 90 days refers to the actual book promotions – all book reviews and Amazon optimizations will remain indefinitely.)
