There are thousands of authors who think it’s way easier to write a book than to dive into marketing and promotions! Here are some resources to help you find the way.

MAILERLITE

(EMAIL MARKETING)

Mailerlite

I’ve used several different email delivery providers in the past, but I’m currently using Mailerlite. I find the interface easy to use, and the cost of plans competitive.

You can use Mailerlite free for up to 1000 subscribers (with a limit of 12000 emails per month) and $15 for up to 2,500 subscribers and unlimited emails. There are higher tiers for those of you with more than 2,500 subscribers.

STORY ORIGIN

(PROMOTION AND MARKETING)

Story Origin
This is a community of authors that offers a number of opportunities to promote and market your books. 

You can sign in to Story Origin to find reviewers, increase sales and build your email list. There are group promos and newsletter swaps.

Similar to Prolific Works, but currently all levels are free (while in BETA)

PROLIFIC WORKS

(PROMOTION AND MARKETING)

Prolific Works

Similar to Story Origin. Upload your ebooks and bonus content, create a giveaway, connect to beta readers, team up with other authors, send out rewards to readers, send a link to your mailing list for a free book or prequel.

You can download a Prolific Works Ereader app.

There are three levels: Basic (free), Pro (Integration with your mailing list in MailChimp or Mailerlite, add subscribers to a mailing list), and Plus (up to 5 pen names and author pages). 

BOOK FUNNEL

(PROMOTION AND MARKETING)

BookFunnel

Deliver your ebook to readers without any headaches. Upload your book(s), add the copy, set the dates for which it is available for download, and copy the link to send to your readers.
