Driving More Traffic for You
One of the methods we use to bring in new reader subscribers to our Best Book Deals Newsletter is offering them a chance to win an Amazon or Barnes & Noble gift card in our weekly drawings.
This week, we upped our game with new capabilities designed to get more readers’ eyes on your books.
We now have the capability to provide extra entries (a.k.a. chances to win) for anyone signing up for our giveaways. Here’s how it works:
- Signing up for a giveaway gives you 1 entry into the contest
- Following our social media accounts gets you more entries
- Opening our Best Book Deals Daily Newsletter get you 10 entries
- Clicking on a link gets you 10 more entries
- Visiting our website grants you another 10 entries
The additional entries increase the probability that a reader will win, but for our purposes, it means MORE people see your books!
Additionally, the new platform allows us to create one-click links that make it easy to join a contest. How easy you ask? Click the button and find out.
This means that we can make it easy for existing subscribers to join the giveaways and motivate them to explore more books.

One Last Note...
People often ask me how I came up with BestBookMonkey.com. It’s a long story, but here’s the short answer.
I’ve been launching and running Internet businesses since 2003. I am a complete geek when it comes to digital marketing. In 2015, I pursued a life-life dream and wrote my first book, The Betrayal of Ka.
Last year, while considering some book marketing ideas for my second book, I had an “aha moment,” and Best Book Monkey was born. I’ll share more of the story and my plans for the future in upcoming newsletters.
Thank you for your support and business! I look forward to working with you and helping us all gain more readers and sell more books.
