Book Funnel Launches Download Codes

Book Funnel Launches Download Codes Self-Pub

Book fairs and trade shows are a couple of the only times that print books have a clear advantage over ebooks. It's really hard to give away or sell ebooks to the person standing in front of you without some type of physical media, and most of the companies that could supply that media (Livrada, Enthrill) keep going out of business.

That is why I was thrilled when I read today that Book Funnel now offered download codes.

As you may know, Book Funnel is one of the companies that authors can use to build their mailing list by giving away an ebook to everyone who submits their email address. Now BF has expanded its platform to give authors the option of giving away or selling download codes that can be exchanged for an ebook.

Today, we’re announcing BookFunnel Print Codes. Now you can carry your ebooks in your pocket and take them anywhere you go.

WHAT IS A PRINT CODE?

It’s a tiny, little code you can give to a reader to download a copy of your book. Print them on postcards, bookmarks, business cards, write them on the back of their hand in black marker, whatever you want. Each code is good for one download, and once it is redeemed, it can’t be used again. Give a reader a print code and direct them to MyBookCode.com where they can download the book, and BookFunnel will handle the rest. Super easy.

The new download option is included with Book Funnel's existing "Mid-List Author" and "Bestseller" plans. The plans costs $100 and $250 and allow for up to 5,000 downloads and unlimited downloads, respectively.

In other words this is available at no extra cost to existing customers, making it a really awesome feature.

    1. On the rare occasions I could interest anyone to read on of my two books, they rejected my offer of a PDF version. They demanded a print copy. I strongly suspect that most of these people put it into a box with other books they got from authors and then hightailed it to the nearest used book store to sell them.
