Episode 49 – Getting a Bookbub Spot and Maximizing the Results

Hosted by: Craig Tuch and Roland Hulme with special guest Juliette N. Banks

Almost since the very day it was founded a decade ago, BookBub Featured Deals have been known as the Holy Grail of promotional newsletters for authors. Despite the high cost and difficulty of getting selected for inclusion, those that do get a spot generally see thousands of sales or downloads. This can be a massive boost to an author’s career, which explains why the demand for these limited spots is so high and writer forums everywhere are littered with more tales of rejected applications than news of success.

Yet authors DO get selected, some multiple times, as is the case with today’s guest. Juliette N. Banks has been publishing her romance novels for a couple of years now, and along with her experience and knowledge gained from spending three decades as a senior marketer, she’s already had six BookBub Featured Deals. They, along with other marketing strategies, changed everything in her business, taking her from three figure earning months to five. And she’s learned a lot along the way.

Juliette sat down with Fully Booked to talk about her experiences and share her insight with our listeners. She has some great tips on ways that authors can improve their chances of being selected in the first place, and then once they do, how best to maximize their ability to profit from the huge exposure to their featured book and overall catalog.
