This page covers some basics that will help you to give away your branded books. We strongly recommend that you take the time to set up the auto-posting system detailed below.

Auto-Posting

The Auto-Posting system will post books to your preferred social media platform for you, such as Twitter or Facebook etc. These posts can only be set up to post to your personal account. You can not auto-post to a Facebook group, but you can post to a Facebook Page that you own.

You can adjust how often the books are posted to your account. The system will post books for you every day, every other day or once every 3 days. Many of our members prefer to post to Twitter every day and to Facebook every other day.

How to set up Auto-Posting

  1. Go to https://ifttt.com and create or log in to your IFTTT account. (IFTTT is a free automation service)
  2. If this is a new IFTTT account you may need to click through their short tutorial, just click on any of the options. This will not affect your account set up at all.
  3. Once you are at the IFTTT dashboard click on your name in the top right and from the drop down menu select 'New Applet'.
  4. Click on the big blue 'this'.
  5. From the list of options, select FEED, it will have an image like the one below. (The options are all in alphabetical order)
    RSS FEED
  6. Click on New Feed Item.

  7. Depending on how often you'd like us to post books for you, copy and paste the address below into the box provided...

    Post frequency

    Address to copy

    Post every other day * http://freebookoftheday.com/rss2.rss
    Post once every 3 days * http://freebookoftheday.com/rss3.rss

    * Due to the way that the auto posting system works there many be times at the start of a new month when the system posts more frequently.

Giving away your books manually

To share your books manually click on one of the share buttons on the linkbuilder page or copy and paste the squeeze page link from the linkbuilder page for the book you wish to promote.

We strongly recommend that you give books to a highly targeting market. The best way to do this is to find a collection of people that are interested in a specific subject (such as a group on Facebook) and then select a book from our database that they will enjoy.
