I began using InstaFreebie about a week ago after downloading a free book from there from another author. I wasn’t sure how well it would work out since I wasn’t familiar with it, but I figured it would be worth trying. At the very least it was another way to get my permafree,Shadow Stalker Part 1 (Episodes 1 – 6) into the hands of potential new readers.
In that time, to my amazement, I managed to get about 41 downloads of my book, which is better than what I get on a weekly basis on all other channels combined. More astonishingly, I haven’t even been promoting the link. I just set it and let it go figuring I’d just see what happens. I wasn’t expecting much, so I’m surprised and thrilled with the outcome.
Aside from that, it’s a great place to get free ebooks if you’re looking for something new to read. I’ve found quite a few good ones there in the last week.
There are three plans to choose from:
Basic – Free
Plus – $20/month
Pro – $50/month
I’m using the free plan at the moment, but I may upgrade it in the future when I have more books published and want to run giveaways.
With the free plan you can have unlimited giveaways, you can set an expiration for the giveaway as well as the number of copies to give away, and you also have the option of DRM settings.
The paid options obviously offer many more features including Mail Chimp Integration and allowing those who download your free book to sign up for your newsletter. So it’s also a great way to build your newsletter or mailing list.
