You’ve shared your message using the ease of publishing on Kindle but now you’re thinking you can’t take advantage of promoting a book signing. Well, why not?
Use Kindlegrah.com’s free service to digitally personalize and sign your readers’ eBooks.
Connect with your readers and promote an online book signing where you can provide an inscription and autograph for the Kindle edition. Your readers can purchase their Amazon Kindle copy through Kindlegraph’s site and the author receives a request to provide an inscription and autograph.
When Evan Jacobs, a former programmer at Amazon and creator of Kindlegraph, entered Doc-U-Sign’s HackerThon competition, I wonder if he was thinking about the promotional and marketing boon available to authors. Kindlegraph now offers personalized digital inscriptions for over fifteen thousand books from 3500 authors.
All anyone has to do to have the Kindle edition of your book autographed and personalized is sign on to Kindlegraph.com using their Twitter account, look up their favorite book’s page, select the eBook of choice and click ‘Request Kindlegraph’. A box will appear where a message can be written to the author stating how they’d like their eBook personalized and with the click of a button the autograph request is rocketed off to the author’s inbox.
Host A Digital Book Signing
Link your online book signing to a Twitterview [an interview via Twitter] and gain even greater benefit:
- Create high-quality content,
- Attract friends and followers,
- Increase search engine rankings,
- Generate leads,
- Drive traffic.
Instead of traveling to a bookstore or other venue to chat with a few readers about your book take advantage of a global audience online. You may even want to link your book signing to a virtual book tour.
Remember to build the excitement of your online book signing by issuing a press release and using your social media platforms.
