I was approached by a marketing service on Twitter and I’ve decided to share the information with you. Goodkindles has built a platform that writers (who have books available for the Kindle) can use (for a fee) to let readers know about their books. The fees they charge are quite affordable, ranging from $7.95 to $19.95.
I’m not astounded over their numbers, but their platform is reasonably healthy and presumably growing. Furthermore, it’s likely to be targeted to people interested in reading books on Kindles.
Compared to some of the services I’ve been approached by, this service is definitely worth discussing. Unlike most services, the fees are affordable for your average writer working towards profitability. Unlike most services, this site is explicit about what they’ll do and how much you’ll pay them to do it. Unlike most services, this site is also fairly upfront about their real reach. In short, I’m sufficiently satisfied that I feel confident recommending the service to those who might be interested.
As I thought of passing along the information, I couldn’t help but wonder if people reading this would know how to make the most of such a service. If you were to invest in such a service, what would you do to maximize your investment?
