{KINDLE BOOK MARKETING STRATEGY} How To Offer Your Book Free Forever On Kindle

KINDLE BOOK MARKETING STRATEGY - How To Offer Your Book Free Forever On AmazonIn my last post, I talked a little about why you should use the KDP Select free promo tool to offer your book for free. By placing links inside your books to your other books, you can temporarily gain massive exposure to those other books until your promo is over.

While this is an awesome tool, unfortunately, it is only temporary……you can only offer a book free a total of 5 days in a 90 day period.

Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to offer a book free permanently? Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to write a book exclusively to be a loss leader…….it’s sole purpose to indirectly promote all your other books?

Well, there is a way.

Did you know you can offer your book for free permanently on Kindle by using Amazon’s ‘Price Match’ feature? Lots of readers know about this feature, but hardly any authors realize they can use it to their benefit.

Amazon will actually price match any book that is selling somewhere else for less than what it is listed for on Amazon.

If your book is available elsewhere for free, and Amazon is notified of this, they may price match. I say “may” because this is not 100% guaranteed. It is up to Amazon’s sole discretion to price match, and they may choose not to.

The advantages to having a book permanently free are huge! Free books get more downloads, and more downloads mean more exposure to the books linked inside your free book.

The disadvantages of using this method are you can’t have your book enrolled in KDP Select. The rules of Select state you can’t have your book available anywhere but on Amazon while enrolled. And your book won’t be included in the Prime Lending Library.

You can always try it one way, and if you’re not getting the results you hoped for, try it the other way. You won’t know what works until you test.
