BookSniffer for authors is here… and it’s going to change the way you build your fan base.
No, really. Not even kidding. But before we get into that, let’s tell you a bit about BookSniffer from the reader’s perspective.
You know that book lover’s app everyone has been waiting for? The one about which everyone has been saying, “I wish someone would build this!” Well, we built it. BookSniffer is an app for book lovers (available on Android right now… iOS is coming soon) and it does some really cool things. First, it sniffs the web for daily deals on books. No need to go out and sign up for lots of different deal sites to find the latest ebook deals. We have them all, right in the app, sorted by genre, refreshed every day. (Over 1,000 book deals per day right now… and we find more daily!) Authors don’t need to sign up to have their deals in our app, either. They’re all just there, in the app, refreshed every day. If we find them, we list them!
On BookSniffer, readers can also follow their favorite genres and authors… like you! They automatically receive notifications about new releases, and can even get direct messages from the authors they love. (Again, that’s you! You can message your fans on BookSniffer!) No need for readers to sort through mountains of email to find news from you anymore. Just post a message to your fans, FREE, once per month, and BAM, it will show up on their device on the day you scheduled it to go out.
(Oh, and we’ve got book memes. TONS and TONS of book memes.)
We’re building more fun stuff… like games, communities, custom shelving systems, fan clubs… you know all those features readers have been clamoring for? Yep, we’re gonna build ’em.
Last but not least, we’re out to do some good, too. 10% of all BookSniffer app ad revenues will be donated to libraries, literacy programs, and classrooms. When more people read, the world becomes a better, safer, stronger place.
If I sign up as a free BookSniffer author, what do I get?
First, as a BookSniffer author, you can invite your fans to follow you on the app, making sure they never miss a new release, book deal, or important announcement from you again. You get your own custom BookSniffer link you can share on social media, in the back of your books, in your newsletters… anywhere you like. And check this out… for every person you invite to follow you who downloads the BookSniffer app, you get $1 in advertising credit you can use later on the platform to build your fan base. (More on that in a moment….)
But… and this is important… you don’t EVER have to spend a nickel to benefit from being a BookSniffer author.
For FREE, we will notify your readers when your next book comes out, right to their device, on the day it comes out. “Yeah, OK, that’s cool.” you might say, “but lots of apps do that.” AHA! But do they let you message your fans? For free? We do. Once per month, you can message your fans about ANYTHING you like. Having a daily book deal? Blast it out to your fans. News on the next book in the series? Blast it out. New video up on your blog of your cat sleeping? Go nuts. Message your fans.
And did we mention that it’s FREE to message your fans once per month? No? Oh, OK, we’ll say it now. Ahem…
Not “free for a limited time”. Not “free until we figure out how much to charge you”. Not “free until you’re hooked into our platform and are relying on us for your business.” Forever free.
So where does that advertising credit come in, you might ask?
Soon, we’ll be opening up advertising on our platform so you can go beyond just your own fans and send messages to anyone in any of our 26 genres. No need to put together a newsletter swap campaign… you want to reach ALL the fans in a genre about your new release or daily book deal? No problem. And you’ll get way better results than what you get from promotional email blasts… BookSniffer users actually *see* your messages and open them… they don’t end up in a pile of spam in some forgotten folder on a hotmail account they haven’t used since they finally gave in and cut that mullet. (Not hating on mullets. Business in the front, party in the back. You do you, Mullet Man.)
All this is availabile in this first version of the BookSniffer platorm for authors… and with your feedback, we’re gonna add TONS more stuff!
