The GOOD EBOOKS Kit For New Authors

PHASE 1 - A FEW WORDS

Hello, new author... and welcome!

Riley Geddings here, with a few, brief words of encouragement up front. Being a writer and published author myself, I have been there, done that and have learned many important things in the book-marketing arena through the school of "hard knocks".

I hope you will learn something from my experiences which will help you in your marketing. My entire website has been created to help authors market their books and eBooks.

Believe me, writing your book is the easiest part. Publishing your book has become much easier, especially with the advent of self publishing.
However, selling your book is quite another story. Successful marketing requires time, patience, testing, perseverence, and understanding.

Since developing this website in 2012, I have had the honor of doing business with hundreds of fellow authors, who have advertised thousands of books and eBooks.

These authors range from newbies to best sellers. As you will see a bit later, we have helped these authors and they are not shy to tell you so!

So please take a thorough journey through our site and take advantage of what it offers. You will certainly find at least 1 or 2 avenues for you to market your writings. There are free-ad opportunities as well as very low-budget ads, and both will get results!


PHASE 2 - YOUR FREE GIFT

As a token of our sincerity and appreciation, we are giving our new author friends a gift certificate to be applied to any available, paid advertising space.

Your gift certificate may only be used one time to be fair to our other author friends. You may use your gift when you order a paid ad. Merely enter "NUAUTH30%" in the discount box on any paid order form. This will give you a one-time 30% discount on any paid ad.

So please take a thorough journey through our site and take advantage of what it offers. You will certainly find at least 1 or 2 avenues for you to market your writings. There are free-ad opportunities as well as very low-budget ads, and both will get results!


PHASE 3 - A BIT ABOUT US

GOOD EBOOKS was founded in 2012 by Riley Geddings, writer, author, Florida landscape artist, and webmaster; with a specific agenda to help authors with their book marketing by providing direct-link advertising to Amazon and Barnes & Noble worldwide.

GOOD EBOOKS provides both free and low-budget advertising for authors... and it works ! Here is a partial list of what authors have to say about us.

"Riley Geddings is a great artist, a renown artist, whose works are done in incredible colors that capture the very essence of Florida. He is also an amazing writer who pulls the reader's interest on page one and does not release it. I close his books only to want more.
Perhaps one of Riley's greatest abilities is that of encouragement, a divine gift, I believe. No matter how busy he is, he always takes time to encourage writers and nurtures their growth with his apt perceptions. He is a treasure to all and a cherished friend, as well as mentor. "
C.D.

"Thanks so much, Riley. I noticed a spike in sales after I first joined."
C.P.

"I want to thank you for the free posting on GoodEbooks.net for my newly published book. Truth be told, sales on this book were not much to brag home about. I had a posting on your site and another Amazon ad running at the same time and my sales increased dramatically. Actually, my book ended up being listed on Amazon's Top 100 Best Seller's List in three categories. I was uncertain if it was your site's posting or the Amazon ad which had such an impact on my book sales and rankings. However, the Amazon ad ceased two days ago and your ad is still running. The sales on my book are still going strong and it remains on Amazon's Top 100 Best Selling List in those same three categories. I am convinced the posting on your site had the most impact and for that I am extremely grateful. I will certainly spread the word to my fellow author and reader friends. Many, many thanks!"
D.D.

"Thank you so much for doing this for me, much appreciated. You have always been a great supporter of us Indie authors and I certainly appreciate that. You give good value and service for money so I hope to be with GoodEBooks for a long time to come."
M.T.

" I have noticed that the sales of Kindle books has gone up. I appreciate your work."
F.W.M.

"Thanks Riley. I've probably told you this before but almost every time I place a new ad with you my book sales spike. Good stuff, man."
R.W.

"I feel like I have stumbled onto a goldmine! I will definitely share your amazing services with all of my contacts."
R.M.

"Riley, you are a godsend to those of us who can't afford expensive promotion. I can't thank you enough."
S.N.

"I've noticed that every time I upgrade my ads on GoodeBooks.net within one or two days my sales on Amazon take a jump."
R.W.

"Thank you so much for your generous listings of my book. When I clicked on your website and saw all three of your listings, all of them so beautifully done, I sat here and I just said, "Wow! Unbelievable!" I'll be blogging about having my book up on your site tomorrow. Again, many thanks!"
C.B.

"I am thrilled to be listed at Good EBOOKS! It is an honor and a privilege. Like other authors listed here, the exposure we receive for our efforts is almost immeasurable. One never knows who may discover us, enjoy our offerings and hopefully, recommend us. There is nowhere I would rather have my book than at this incredible site.
With deep appreciation,"
C.D.

"I have another book on here! I love this site!"
A.D.

"The subject of your website came up at the Tuscan Writer's Conference."
W.K.

"My publisher is always impressed by the Good Ebooks listings and the results they produce. :)"
M.H.

"I have already been up on your site before, and I found it to be very helpful in boosting sales. Thanks, Riley!"
C.A.B.

"I am impressed with your service. Many thanks for getting this book up so quickly! Best wishes,"
M.H.

"Thanks, I know my listing on Good eBooks made a real impact. I'm really happy. Thanks so much for all your support. I think your website is one of the most attractively designed out there."
C.B.

"Great work you are doing for authors, thanks and God bless."

K.P.

"Hi, Riley . . . I heard about this site because you connected with me on Linkedin and told me about it. What a wonderful place-- I'd be happy to be a part of it! Thanks and blessings,"
L.M.

"THANK YOU!!!! I just went to the website and there it is, just as you said! I'm so proud to be associated with Good Ebooks. I recently spoke at the West Coast Writers Conference, and I'll be presenting a writers' workshop next month. I'll mention your website to those in attendance. It's good advertising for all of us."
S.N.

"WOW how exciting, thank you so much for this opportunity. The ad looks great, links are working. I will try setting up your logo on my blog, and will be checking out your other ad offers."
G.R.

"Found you on LinkedIn. Glad I did. Wonderful site. Great find for authors."

PHASE 4 - LIMITED FREE ADVERTISING

To get you started, especially if you have a small advertising budget, GOOD EBOOKS offers several webpages containing book-cover ads and are free. This option will help, even though these ads run a shorter period of time.

The place to find these freebies is:




1. "KIDZ WORLD"
Is for Children, Teen, and Young Adult (YA) titles. These free ads will be displayed on "Kidz World", also holding 20 ads, and running for at least 30 days each. See:


2. "BIBLICAL GOLD"
"Christian", or "Other Spiritual Inspirational" Book ads will be displayed on multiple pages, "Biblical Gold", "Biblical Gold 2", "Biblical Gold 3", 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and so on..... holding an unlimited amount of free ads, which, in effect, do not expire. We now have 6 Biblical Gold webpages ! See:


3. "WORLD of POETRY"
Is for authors who write poetry. These free "Poetic" Book ads will be displayed on "World of Poetry", holding 20 free ads and running for at least 30 days each. See:


4. "NEW RELEASES"
This free webpage is somewhat different. If an author has a book or eBook which has been released within the last 5 months, we will feature it in the center fold. The large book-cover ad will display the author, title, release date, and full book description, The ad will be displayed in sequence by release date. We only run the most current release for the last 5 months because of page-space constraints. Then ads will trickle down as time passes, and will be deleted in the 6th month. See:


5. "BOOK-COVER DESIGNERS & ILLUSTRATORS"
Not every author has this talent or business. However, for designers, we offer a free, dedicated webpage for that purpose. This free webpage is unique, in that it contains free blocks of space for the designer or illustrator to display a company logo, name, address, phone number, contact or email, samples, and a full description of what the designer does. See:


6. "PUBLISHERS"
We often run across publishers who would like to provide our writers with a publishing option. We offer them a free, dedicated webpage which contains free blocks of space for the publisher to display a company logo, name, address, phone number, contact or email, samples, and a full description of what the publisher offers. Some publishers promote imprints, or book-cover ads for their authors. We will display those ads for a small extra fee for 3 months. However, if the publisher buys paid ads anywhere else on our website, these ads will also be displayed in the publisher's free space at no extra cost. See:



EXAMPLE of HOW TO REQUEST A FREE AD:


Let's go through a free-ad example together. We have written and published a poetry book and want to start with a freebie ad on GOOD EBOOKS.

Let's say our advertising budget is not quite up to par at the moment, so we should try for a freebie to start with. Let's visit the author page at:


We'll scroll down past the 3 paid-ad promotion ad blocks, down to the "Wait List" form. There is normally a short wait for free ads because of the demand. Okay, let's fill in the form, and in the pull-down menu for "Which Type Ad Page ? *", we will select "World of Poetry".

Our book was released 2 weeks ago. We should let GOOD EBOOKS know that our book qualifies for the "New Releases" webpage. Well, we could go ahead and add that info in the comments section of the form - hmmmm, no, just to be sure, let's submit this request form and fill out another form for our new release request.

GOOD EBOOKS will receive both of our requests and answer them with "Request Received" in the subject. The Good Ebooks Team Member will give us a ballpark time that our free-ad requests will be honored, and will add our requests to the "Wait List". When it's our turn, they will create our 2 ads, and send us a notification. At this point, we should visit the links where our ads were created and check our ads for accuracy. If any data should be corrected, GOOD EBOOKS will be happy to do so.


PHASE 5 - LOW-BUDGET ADVERTISING

Basically, all paid-advertising spaces are book-cover ads and contain a direct link to Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Amazon Canada, or B&N global. The ads are displayed in columns on the left and right, and are price-rated by page position.

"Top 10 Ad Spots" - (Positions 1 though 5 on either side) and have a 'greenish' background.

"Middle-high 10 Ad Spots" - (Positions 6 though 10 on either side) and have a 'blueish' background.

"Middle-Low 10 Ad Spots" - (Positions 11 though 15 on either side) and have a 'grayish' background.

"Lower 10 Ad Spots" - (Positions 16 though 20 on either side) and have a 'tanish' background.

Every ad on GOOD EBOOKS is formatted as a full-color, book-cover ad, and will link directly to your eBook(s) or book(s).

All Amazon USA paid ads will run on 17 non-free webpages for 3 full months with the option to renew.

All Amazon Canada paid ads will run for 3 months on the "Shop Amazon Canada" webpage with option to renew.

All Amazon UK paid ads will run on the "Shop Amazon UK" webpage for 3 months with option to renew.

All Barnes & Noble paid ads will run on the "Shop Barnes & Noble" webpage with option to renew.

The available ad space, ad rates, and ad-order forms are found below. Cick on "Promote Here" below.

EXAMPLE of HOW TO BUY A PAID-AD SPACE

Let's go through a paid-ad example together. Remember, we have written and published a poetic book and obtained a free ad on "World of Poetry" and "New Releases". We received pretty good results from those freebies, and GOOD EBOOKS treated us right, they seem honest, and their paid ads are quite reasonable - so let's go for it, let's buy a paid ad !

We have a few bucks in our budget, so let's go visit the Amazon USA ads-available webpage under "Advertising" in the navigation bars. We will land on:

In this example we are assuming that the ad space at position 7-Left is available.
We can see right away that this shows us the left and right positions of ad space which have been sold and which are available. Look at position 7-Left in the "Middle-High" rate area, it's marked as
** AVAILABLE **. Just above that, we see a yellow box marked "Order Now". We can click on that box and it will link us with the order form. It's quite a good position and is a tad cheaper than "Top Spot". Okay, now let's fill in the form.

"Author" Box, we enter the actual author (or pen) name, even if it's not our real name.

"Email" Box, we enter the email address which we will want to receive email from GOOD EBOOKS.

"Humanoid" Box, we must enter "yes" in lower case so the software will know we are not a programmed robot.

"Use Pull-Down to Select Your Ad" Box, we must select one from the Amazon area, so we will select "Amazon Middle-High Ad - 7-Left".

"Book Title * & Comments" Box, is where we will enter our book title. Since it's on Amazon, we should also enter the ASIN number. We can also add comments.

"Discount Code" Box, from time to time, GOOD EBOOKS will publish a 'sale', and discount the rate. Since we have been given a one-time free certificate for 30% off, may as well cash it in now! So we will enter "NUAUTH30" in the discount code box now.

"Submit Info" Box, is what we click to submit the form - (dughhhh !)

The software knows that position 7-Left is available now, and will be flagged "Sold" when our order has been received at GOOD EBOOKS.

GOOD EBOOKS will receive our paid order and answer it with "RECEIVED" and a big Thank you ! The GOOD EBOOKS Team will create our book-cover, Amazon USA-Link ad very soon, usually the same day. They will send us an email to that effect, to notify us know that our ad space at position 7-Left is now running on 17 non-free webpages for greater exposure. Then, a bit later, we will receive an invoice for us to pay for the initial 3 months ad rate. Since we have received such fast service from GOOD EBOOKS, we should pay the invoice quickly. They will acknowledge our payment upon receipt.

After our ad has run for 3 months, GOOD EBOOKS will notify us a few days before it expires, that we have the option to renew the ad space for another 3 months at the current rate. If we feel that our ad has been fruitful for us, we will consider renewing our ad space for another 3 full months. This option is purely optional on our part, we don't have to renew, but it would be nice if we would let them know so they can make arrangements to sell the space to other, waiting authors.

The folks at GOOD EBOOKS don't know if we are going to renew or not. They are pretty smart, but, alas, not mind readers. So just in case we may want to renew, they will send us a courtesy reminder about 2 to 4 days before our ad space expires. Then if we want to renew, we will reply so they will send us an invoice to cover the renewal rate for another 3 months.

In our case we may want to renew, but let's suppose we don't. The Good Ebooks Team will never 'pressure' us to renew, and will not send a second reminder! Of course, we would be nice enough to send them an email that we are going to decline the renewal option this time around. Therefore if they get no reply, our ad space will expire, and our ad space will be added to the ads-available page as "Available".

Now suppose we have a different book that we would rather advertise at our current 7-Left position? No problem, GOOD EBOOKS will change the title any time, if we send the title and/or ASIN number!
