How to Post, Edit, and Delete a Promo on the B4

It only takes a few moments to post your promo to the BookFunnel Bundles Bulletin Board (The B4). If you are looking for an overview of the B4 and how you can use it, learn more here.

Or, learn how to join someone else’s promo here.

Post a Promo

To post a promo to the B4:

  1. Click Promotions on your BookFunnel dashboard, or just click here.
  2. Click Post a New Promo in the top-right corner.
  3. Complete the form.
    • Contact Name and Email: We strive to protect your privacy. We will not share your account name or account email with any other author or service. Please provide a contact name and contact email address that you are comfortable sharing with other authors that want to join your promo.
    • Promotion Name: This is helpful in identifying your promotion. Example: 12 Days of Cozy Mysteries in July.
    • Submission Deadline: This is the last date you will accept submissions. Your promo will automatically close and be removed from the board after the deadline has passed. You can edit the submission deadline later to reactivate your promo.
    • Start/End Dates: You can leave the date fields blank, but promos posted without a submission deadline or start date will be sorted to the bottom of the genre list.
    • BookFunnel Bundle Link: If you are using the Bundles tool, post a link to your Bundle page so that authors can see the header image and description you are planning. You do not have to use the BookFunnel Bundles feature in order to post your promo, but if you are, link it up!
    • Facebook Discussion Link: If you are on Facebook and would like authors to see the discussion thread you have started, link to your Facebook post. If your Facebook post is in a private group, only authors in that group will be able to see your post. Join our Facebook Author Group here and Author Bundles Group here.
    • Promo Description: Describe the promotion so that authors know if they are a good fit. Is this a group author promotion that is open to anyone that will sign up, or only 6? Do all participants need to share with their newsletter or social media X times? Is this for KDP Select Previews only?
    • Promo Requirements: Describe the kind of books you are looking for, and be clear about the requirements.
    • If space in your promo is limited, select the number of available slots. You can then set your promo to automatically close submissions once all of the available spaces have been filled.
  4. Click Post Promo. You will receive an email confirmation with details and a direct link to your promo post on the B4.
