Power Package – Option 2 + Option A
Combines Option 2 …
Sponsor a Free Kindle Nation Short excerpt of 5,000-20,000 words to promote your Kindle book. Let readers preview your book through an email blast or via Amazon’s Whispernet (Amazon’s term for the automatic connection to their servers). Connect directly to over 44,500 opt-in email or Kindle edition subscribers.
A great way for readers to sample your work and, if they like it, purchase the entire book.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT SENDING REQUIRED MATERIALS
To complete your sponsorship processing, please forward a copy of this email message to us at email@example.com with
- An e-copy of the entire book, as a review copy for us, in one of the following Kindle-compatible formats — MOBI, DOC, TXT, RTF, HTML, PDF — but NOT EPUB, AZW or DOC-X.
- Selecting and Sending an Excerpt: For Free Kindle Nation Shorts submissions, we recommend at least 5,000 words and no more than 20,000. When sending an excerpt, please use a DOC file if possible; do NOT use MOBI, PDF, AZW or DOC-X. Try to make the submission substantial enough to differentiate it from the “free sample” that is available on every Kindle book page. Starting your excerpt at the beginning of your book is likely to provide your prospective readers — and buyers — with the most convenient and friction-free experience.
… and Option A
Unlike most of our sponsorships which follow a fairly rigid template, the SSP-TP allows authors and publishers to create their own post, subject to our editing and approval. (If you prefer for us to create your post based on the information on a single title’s Kindle page, we’ll be happy to do that – just let us know.) The post appears on the Kindle Nation Daily website (over 315,500 page views a month) late on the afternoon of the first sponsorship date, goes out to over 2,100 paid subscribers’ Kindles, and is “amplified” via Facebook posts on Kindle Nation’s Facebook page (78,500+ fans) for three consecutive days beginning that same day. Additionally, for those three days your book is summarized and linked in our nightly Kindle Nation Daily Digest, which goes out to over 44,500 opt-in email subscribers.
For authors and publishers wanting to make a special announcement to our readers, this option allows a post of up to 500 words on the afternoon of the sponsored post date. Full text must be submitted for our review and approval upon sign-up and will be edited by Kindle Nation to conform with our style, tone, and – where applicable – editorial views. Post will be identified as a “sponsored post.” Posts may contain up to 6 linked titles in the Kindle Store (or other links subject to our approval), and may contain up to two small graphic images such as book covers or author photos.
When you sign up, include a brief description of how you would like to use your Special Sponsored Post in the notes section. In most cases, we’ll need a draft of your post within 48 hours after you sign up.
