You can use BookFunnel with any mailing list provider. Here are three ways to use us to deliver your books.
You Collect the Email, We Deliver
Available On: All Plans
All BookFunnel plans allow you to create a download page and then email that link to your readers through your mailing list service. We can’t provide a detailed how-to here, as all mailing list providers have slightly different steps, but the basic steps are:
- Create a sign-up form on your own website. All mailing list services will let you do this.
- Drive reader traffic to the sign-up form on your website, where they can enter their email address.
- Once they have joined your list, your mailing list service should send them a “welcome” email.
- Add your BookFunnel download link to that welcome email, so that your new subscribers can download your book. Learn how to create a download page here.
Pros: Simple to set up and manage
Cons: Your link can be shared online with other readers that did not sign up for your list, BookFunnel can’t track who downloads your book
We Collect the Email, We Deliver, You Import the Readers
Available On: Mid-List, Bestseller, & Publisher Plans
Use a giveaway page, and it will act as your landing page and delivery page, all in one! You can design a beautiful, custom landing page on BookFunnel in minutes. No web expertise necessary. 🙂
You drive reader traffic to your giveaway page on BookFunnel and we will collect their email address on your behalf. We store their email address (and optionally first and last name) in a CSV on your dashboard. Learn how to create this page here.
You can then import the CSV of subscribers into your mailing list service at your convenience. Learn where to find the CSV on your dashboard.
Pros: Saves time by eliminating the extra step of building a landing page on your own website, if your link is shared online, those extra subscribers can be added to your mailing list
Cons: You need to export the CSV of reader email addresses we collect on your behalf and import it into your mailing list service periodically.
