Book Bargains Site & Newsletter Earning $6,555.17/Mo
Calling all book business investors! Launched in January 2016, this seven (7) year old book-bargains, freebies, and email newsletter site earns $8,113/month via its email promotion campaigns. Book authors that want to promote their latest novels in all sub-genres of Romance, pay to be advertised in a weekly email newsletter announcement to an active email list of 20,000 romance novel enthusiasts.
The site sends four (3) email broadcasts, four (4) times a week (Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays). Email broadcasts campaigns consist of the "Freebies", "Bargains - $2.99 or Less", and "Kindle Unlimited" newsletters. Romance novel authors can purchase their broadcast campaign for the following week's email newsletters.
To manage this business operation, it takes just 1.5 hours, once a week, to fill in the email templates with the new author releases and paid campaigns. This task can be outsourced, and Standard Operating Procedures will be provided to the new owner.
This page shows what email newsletter campaigns authors can purchase.
Here is an example of the latest "Freebie" email newsletter campaign (as of January 26, 2023), also synced and published as a page on the website.
Here is a page showcasing new book releases that have been submitted by authors on this page here. Most books are found on the Amazon marketplace, and amazon affiliate links are added to the website page and not in email newsletters (as Amazon TOS prohibit the use of affiliate links in the email format). There is Amazon affiliate income generated for this business that the P&L does not account for. The new owner can regenerate those links and organize the income accordingly after acquisition using a software like SiteBuddy.
