The BookFunnel Bundles Bulletin Board (The B4)

The BookFunnel Bundles Bulletin Board allows you to post your cross-promotional opportunities so that other BookFunnel authors can find it and sign up. The B4 (shortened to save our word count!) is here to help you connect with other authors on BookFunnel that want to work with you.

Any BookFunnel author can post a promo or set up notifications to follow specific genre(s).

What can I do with the B4?

  • Create your own promo and post it on the B4 so that other authors can join up.
  • Find other promos that are currently recruiting authors in your genre.
  • Set a notification on the B4 page and learn when other authors post promos in your genre or sub-genre.

Where can I find the B4?

Click Promotions on your BookFunnel dashboard, or just click here.

Why did you build this?

(Or, “Why on earth, when there are a million Facebook groups and other platforms that do this already, did you recreate the wheel?”)

Facebook is great. K-Boards is great. Other services that help you find authors in your genre are super great. What we have heard from you guys, and what we have observed in our own authorly (totally a word) pursuits, is that there can be a lot of noise on those other platforms. That noise (joyous announcements, grumpy complaints, political rants) can be time-consuming to sift through. We built the B4 to help you quickly find other authors on BookFunnel to work with.

If you are a Facebook user, post the promo on the B4 and on Facebook! You can link directly to your Facebook post in your B4 post. Join our Bundle Authors Facebook group here!

If you are a K-Boards user, post about the promo in both places and invite non-BookFunnel authors to try it out with one of our tokens.

FAQ

Does BookFunnel promote my book?

BookFunnel is not a promotional platform and we do not have a reader list. Readers will only find your book on our service if you (or someone else) sends them the link to it.

Because we are not a promo site, you can trust that when you send your reader to BookFunnel, they are only going to see your book. They will not receive free content by other authors on our service. While we will never solicit your reader, we think it is awesome when authors work and promote together, so we built this incredible tool and the B4 to facilitate those partnerships.

The B4 is a bulletin board you can use to find other authors to swap mailing lists with and promote each other’s books.

Can I post on the B4, even if I'm not using Bundles?

Yes. Most of the promotions on the B4 will be using the Bundles tool, but it isn’t a requirement.

There are a lot of creative ways to work with other authors. For example, if you want to feature a free read by a different Fantasy author every month, post it on the B4 and other Fantasy authors on BookFunnel can offer up their book.

Am I required to post my promo on the B4?

This board is a place for BookFunnel authors to find each other, and you can use it, or not. This is just another option, one that we hope will help some folks filter out the noise on other platforms. You can post your promo on the B4, or K-Boards, or Facebook, or all three (and many, many more) if you like.

Can I reject a link submitted to my promo?

Yes. If you have very specific requirements, be clear in your post about what you are looking for. Save yourself and other authors time by detailing the preferred list size, minimum review rating, USA Today Bestseller, etc.

If you need to reject an author’s link, they will receive an email letting them know that their link wasn’t accepted. You can include a quick note explaining why (novellas only, no KDP-Select, etc) as a courtesy.
