Book giveaways are intended to encourage the winners and/or people who download your free eBook to write reviews. As a new author, your obscurity may be the one thing holding you back from success, so you’ll be eager to see those reviews pour in. Whether or not you get many reviews as a direct result of a giveaway, however, offering your book for free to a large number of readers can still have a positive effect on sales. Word-of-mouth continues to be one of the best means of advertising, so if each of your readers recommends your book to a friend or two, you will see an increase in sales as recommendations proceed from reader to reader(s). In this fashion, enthusiastic readers will be inspired to write reviews.
Whether for a free promotion or for sales, consider using BookLinker
