The opportunities listed below are marketing avenues we offer on the Paranormal Romance Lovers website.
Be sure to check back here often because we will be rolling out more marketing opportunities periodically!
Submit your book for our Free Paranormal Romance eBooks page – Cost: FREE!
One of our most popular pages on Paranormal Romance Lovers is our Free eBooks page! Authors know how important it is to entice a new reader to try one of their books. Giving away a free eBook (especially the first book of a series) is a very reliable way to not only do that but to also generate future sales!
Submitting your book is easy. If you have a permafree book or a book that you will have available for free for over fourteen (14) days and you want to have it available for download from our Free eBooks page, just email us the link(s) where visitors can download your book- that’s it! We’ll grab the cover and synopsis from your listing. If your book is not permafree, then please include the date the book is no longer free so we can add it to the listing.
Please note- we do not accept free eBooks which are free for less than 14 days. If you are wanting to promote a book this is free for a short period of time, consider using our popular PNR Deals Newsletter.
Email your links to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and please enter “Free eBook submission” in the Subject line. In the body of the email, please list the links to be used, if it is permafree or the day it will no longer be free.
Once your book is added, we will promote it now and in the future on our social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram).
Sorry but no links to a site where the visitor has to sign-up for a newsletter will not be accepted. The links have to go to an online retailer or to a page on your site if you are giving it away for free with no catches (we will be checking!).
Banner Ads on Paranormal Romance Lovers — Cost: $25US per banner for 30 Days
Paranormal Romance Lovers is now offering authors the opportunity to promote your books on our site with banner ads at a very affordable price!
How It Works
Paranormal Romance Lovers is currently renting banner ad space in two locations:
The first location is a 300 x 250 banner ad location located at the top right, above the side bar. According to a study conducted by Google, this location is the most popular banner location based on the number of impressions and resulting clickthroughs. This banner ad displays regardless of what post or page you are on while using the site.
The second location is a 728 x 180 banner ad location found at the bottom of every post. This banner ad location is only visible when a user is viewing a post.
Because of the banner ad rotation system we use, Paranormal Romance Lovers can place any number of banner ads in these locations. Each banner ad has the same priority, meaning no one banner will be displayed more than another. Each banner will go into rotation with the other banners. This guarantees each banner will appear numerous times throughout any given day depending on the number of visitors viewing the site. You can expect your banner ad to appear well over 2,000 times in a 30-day period!
How Much Does It Cost?
Each individual banner ad location (300 x 250 and 728 x 180) costs $25 US for a 30-day time span. Your 30 days can begin at any time so you can have it run when you are having a promotion or a new release, for example. If you don’t have a graphic, we can create one for you for $35 US. This price does not include your $20 US for the 30-day banner ad period. You can view examples of our past banner ad work on this page. Email us if you wish to learn more about this service.
That sounds great! How do I get started?
Simply follow the steps outline below:
– Send us an email with the following information:
Your author name
The email address we should send the invoice to
Name of your book
The date you wish your banner ad to begin its 30-day rotation
What size your banner ad is (either 300 x 250 or 728 x 180)
The URL you wish your banner ad to link to (this is the page the user will be taken to when they click on your banner ad)
When you send this email, please attach your banner ad as an attachment. We also ask you ensure the banner ad is the correct size which is either 300 x 250 or 728 x 180.
What happens after I submit my banner ad?
Every banner ad has to be reviewed before it goes live. We don’t foresee any banner ad being declined due to content. But to make sure it doesn’t happen, here are the reasons we would decline your banner ad:
Hate-related or Offensive imagery
We expect the banners submitted to us to be in good taste and very similar or the same as the covers used for your books. If your banner ad is declined, then we will contact you regarding why it was declined.
If there is no problem with your banner ad, we will send you a PayPal invoice. Once payment is made, we will add it to the banner ad rotation for that banner location beginning on the start date you selected. Depending on the number of banner ads in rotation for that particular location, it may take a couple of hours for your banner ad to appear. Just rest assured that it will.
Please allow 1-2 business days for us to review and invoice you for your banner ad. Just contact us if you have any questions.
If you have any questions, you can send them to us at email@example.com. Thanks and we look forward to your responses!
