Extended Bonus Offer for Book Launch

Because we had a small snafu with the bonus offered to HowToDoItFrugally readers, Denise Cassino and I are extending the launch of the second edition of The Frugal Book Promoter through to Sunday, 10/9. You can access three free months of Bookbuzzr pro now if you've already purchased the book (just use the same download code you used before.)  If you didn't participate you may do so and get bonus offers from the likes of Shelley Hitz, Dvorah Lansky, and Dan Poynter and the new edition of The Frugal Book Promoter at Amazon's discounted price. Go to http://bit.ly/qHi6DZ and get your copy and your bonuses now.

Here is more information on what Bookbuzzr.com can do for you!

With regard to BookBuzzr ...

We are the world's leading provider of book-marketing technologies for authors with over 7000 registered authors. We help authors market their books online through a variety of methods.
BookBuzzr Widget and Other Free Technologies:
1. Authors simply have to sign-up on the www.bookbuzzr.com site, upload their book-extract and other information and they get a beautiful widget with flipping pages. BookBuzzr Widget is like a portable author website that allows for marketing of the book on Facebook, MySpace, Linked-in and Twitter. The BookBuzzr widget also acts as a more engaging replacement for an author's book-cover image. And it's completely free. The widget also holds sales or buying details. When the reader buys the book the author makes money.
2. Authors can include a BookBuzzr Email Signature featuring their own book in their emails (this is something you get when you sign-up for BookBuzzr).
3. Authors can also set up their BookTweeter settings to tweet about their book on Twitter every time somebody previews their book. Again, BookTweeter is part of the BookBuzzr suite of online book-marketing technologies.
4. "The BookBuzzr Mini-Widget" - this is basically a mini widget that can be used in places where the larger sized widget does not fit.
create the AuthorPage widget from BookBuzzr and to connect it to your Facebook fan page you have to sign up for BookBuzzr Author Pro or Pro Plus Subscription.
BookBuzzr Author Pro - This technology helps authors promote their books to book lovers in an innovative, patent-pending method on our Freado.com website. This technology costs authors $9 per month. In return our technology will get the author's book-cover memorized(CoverMatcher ) a 200 times during the month to their target audience. Also, authors can decide to simply give away their book on Freado.com as a free gift. They get exposure from our book-lover players playing the game on the site and bidding for books.

By signing up for BookBuzzr Author Pro or Pro Plus you can create the AuthorPage widget from BookBuzzr and connect it to your Facebook fan page.

The BookBuzzr AuthorPage Facebook Fan Page Technology:

1. Provides tabbed design for better engagement with fans

2. Increases likelihood of more people “Liking” your page

3. Increases likelihood of people returning back to your page

Other Benefits of a BookBuzzr Author Pro or Pro Plus Subscription:

1. Exposure for Your Book in Freado’s Hangman Word Games:
As a subscriber to BookBuzzr Author Pro, you also get to show your book inside the Freado Hangman Games. These are casual word games that are enjoyed by book readers. You can ensure that your book shows up only on themes that are related to your book. For example, if you’ve written a book on vampires, you can ensure that it appears on a game titled “Top 10 Vampire Movies of All Time”

2. Exposure for Your Book in the Prizes section on Freado.com:
If you are a BookBuzzr Author Pro subscriber, you can also give away your book as a prize on Freado.com. Book lovers then bid with points (which they have earned from playing games on the site) for your book. This creates buzz and interest in your book. Further, your book shows up in the BookBuzzr newsletter which has thousands of readers. Your book also shows up on Freado’s Facebook fan page in the Prizes section.

3. Save Time via BookBuzzr Amazon Alerts:
Checking Amazon Sales Rank can be a major time waster for most authors. BookBuzzr’s Amazon Alerts tool (available free with a BookBuzzr Author Pro subscription) frees you from the time-wasting grip of the Amazon sales rank. It sends you an email alert ONLY if your sales rank has improved (indicating the “ka-ching”.) And it sends you a ‘daily digest’ with information about how your sales rank moved during each day. You can thus stay focused on your activities without breaking your flow, wasting time or having to feel de-motivated if you see that your sales rank has nose-dived.

4. Exposure on Freado’s Facebook Fan Page:
Most authors understand that a Facebook fan page (aka public profile) can be a powerful way to market and promote their books. If you are BookBuzzr Author Pro subscriber, we will promote your book on our Facebook fan page with a link to your Facebook fan page.

5. Access to Premium Book Marketing Technology Content:
The book marketing technology experts at BookBuzzr also run a number of webinars every month with other industry experts. Questions such as “How do I sell books on Facebook?” or “Can I use Twitter to promote a book contest” are answered by book publicity experts with real life experiences. These webinars eventually land up in the premium content section on your BookBuzzr Book Marketing Home page. BookBuzzr Premium content is accessible only to BookBuzzr Author Pro subscribers.

6. Extra exposure on Freado.com in the Interviews Section:
As a premium paying author, you get an extra tab on your Freado author profile page where we feature an interview with you. This helps visitors to better understand who you are and why they should be interested in your book.

7. BookBuzzr’s Goodwill Builder:
As an author you want to build a relationship with your readers. One way to do this is to give your readers something of value when they visit your web page, Facebook page (or Facebook fan page) or Twitter page. This could be interesting content, an opportunity to participate in a prize giveaway or something similar. When a visitor comes to your website or blog (or Facebook page), they get to see a message that offers 1,000 free points for use on Freado.com. The Goodwill Builder is available only for BookBuzzr Author Pro subscribers.

8. Premium Access to BookBuzzrs Book Marketing Technologies Forum:
As an author you may have many technology related questions. “Should I use Wordpress for my website?” “ How do I run a contest on Facebook?” etc. But you should be spending time writing books … not researching answers to technology questions. The proposed BookBuzzr Book Marketing Technologies Forum allows you to ask your question to other BookBuzzr authors and to the staff at BookBuzzr. This forum will be the world’s first and only forum dedicated to answering the ‘book marketing technology’ questions of authors.
