We currently have 3 available options for featuring your novel with genreCRAVE. Please read about them below.
Please Note: Once you book your promotion, you do not need to contact us with further information. We get everything we need from the form! You should receive an automatic reminder the day before your promo is set to run. It may go to promotions or other folder. However, even if you don’t receive this reminder, that does not mean your promotion won’t be going out. Subscribe to our newsletter to see the offer when it goes out (usually before 5pm EST). If it is after 5pm on the day of your promotion and you think your promotion hasn’t run, you can contact genrecrave (at) gmail (dot) com – Please do not contact before that time, as there’s a 99.99% chance we’ll be busy delivering your service, and interruptions mean less time spent promoting your work, which is what we really want to focus on!
SPOTLIGHT – $100
Our Spotlight Feature is a solo feature of your book in our newsletter to our complete list of subscribers (about 60,000 subscribers currently). You will also receive free crossover promotion to our private, genre-specific lists. We pick these lists based on which segments we believe will respond best to your title.
With this option, we only feature one book per day to our newsletter. Titles that are priced $0.99 perform best. The cost of this promotion is $100, and on average, users report 30-200 sales from this promotion. Books with an OUTSTANDING cover, phenomenal blurb, and killer opening pages perform best. Having reviews helps, too. None of these things are required, but all are strongly encouraged for best results.
BOOK BLAST – $299
Our Book Blast is our best selling service and often books out solid two-three months in advance. This is not a newsletter feature. This is a direct marketing campaign. We have various segments of readers on social media who have signed up for us to send them a message if we find a book we think they might like. Our book blast covers a send to the three best-fitting segments of readers we have. We do not give out information about our readers or about our segments, as this is one of the most effective services for new releases and our secret business model.
Titles $2.99-$4.99 have the best immediate ROI, but do not move as many copies or have the same ranking effect as titles priced $0.99. If you are looking to boost your book in ranking, we strongly recommend a $0.99 title. Newer titles perform better than older titles, but users have gotten great results even with titles that have been out for years. We will only perform one book blast per title at this time.
Book Blasts cannot be cancelled or rescheduled as we begin set up as soon as we receive your order. Our employees spend a lot of time setting up your book blast in the weeks leading up to it, and then they dedicate an entire day to getting you as many sales as they can.
Our records indicate that most of our clients get 80-400* sales with this blast. Many of our readers are reviewers, too. However, we do not guarantee book reviews or results on any of our packages. All we can do is guarantee our best effort to get you as many sales as possible with our readers. As with our other services, we recommend having a stellar cover and blurb for this feature.
We also offer a MEGA BOOK BLAST. The Mega Book Blast is for authors looking to make 120 – 700* sales. Although we cannot guarantee results, your book offer will go out to almost twice as many readers.
* Average sales based on $0.99 price point and are not a results guarantee. Results occur over the course of 1-2 days.
Please note: There is no way to view a Book Blast because that is done via a direct marketing campaign. Here is an example of the kind of proof we can provide that you blast ran. There is an extra fee for “Proof of Delivery” same as most companies have if you want to add tracking to a order you’ve placed. That said, your results will be clearly measurable by your ranking increase and sales.
Superstar – $225
This promotion is for authors looking to expand their personal newsletters via a solo, private giveaway. We collect the subscribers via our giveaway tool, which is sent on promotion to our entire audience (198,000 combined). This option also includes a solo feature of your title in our newsletter (similar to the Spotlight promotion). The giveaway runs one month from the date you book, and results are sent to you via a .csv file within 7-10 days of your promotion ending. If it is 45 days after the start date of your promotion and you still have not gotten your results, please email genrecrave (at) gmail (dot) com.
This feature usually results in 30-100 sales (sometimes more, but those are spread out over the course of a month) and 1000-2000+ subscribers. However, we cannot guarantee results, and these numbers are just based on previous results we’ve seen.
Please note: We do not guarantee results and we do not offer refunds for titles that don’t perform well. Our job is to get your book in front of readers, but it’s still the authors job to have created a product they can’t resist. By placing an order on our site, you agree that you are paying us for our time and for access to our resources. Please keep in mind, due most authors experiences and results with us, we have a lot of repeat clients with busy publishing schedules, and some of our options book out months in advance. The calendar will only show available upcoming dates.
If you have any questions, you can email genrecrave (at) gmail (dot) com.
