Why you should do free book promotion on Amazon KDP
The following are the reasons why you should do free book promotion on Amazon KDP:
You have a book series
You can run a free book promotion on Amazon KDP if you have a book series with 2 or more books.
You can decide to price the first book in the series at free to entice readers to read for free and to put the other books in the series in their faces.
I did that with my Christian romance book series. I priced the first, The Prostitute at free in order to sell the second book in the series, Thorns Inside the Rose.
I have lots of good reviews and downloads from the first free book. This has also given good promotion to the second book in the series.
You want more reviews and ratings
If you want more reviews and ratings for your books, you should consider doing a free book promotion on Amazon KDP. I mentioned earlier that my best selling Christian romance novel has gotten lots of downloads and good reviews and ratings so far.
This has really helped my others books in one way or the other. This is also the case with some of my other free ebooks on Amazon.
