Book Bloggers: Help Readers, Help Authors and Earn Commission

Free Books Section Plugin

If you are a book blogger, or an author, or if you have a website related to writing, books or publishing, did you know that you can offer Free Kindle Books to your visitors and earn commission at the same time?

Well, yes it is true! And in this article, we are going to show you how!

Our system is based upon the principle of cooperation between book bloggers, authors, reviewers, publishers and anyone else involved with the subject of books. Essentially, we work together to promote Kindle books that are on free offer – either permanently free (permafree) or free via the Kindle Unlimited program, and with our approach, everybody wins.

We do all of the heavy lifting by providing continuously updated, news feeds for your site and we provide a simple way of monetizing any blog related to books.

Installation is easy! For WordPress sites and blogs, we have a free plugin that embeds our books into your site. For Blogger (Blogspot) blogs and all other websites capable of accepting embeds, we provide code that accomplishes the same thing (see below for full instructions).

Once the installation is completed, you will have a selection of our Free Kindle Books embedded into your site with your affiliate link leading to our Kindle Book Promotion page.

Here is a list of the main features that our system can provide for you.

  • Free Books for Your Visitors
  • Regularly Updated Dynamic Content
  • Select Your Preferred Genre
  • All Major Book Genres Supported
  • PermaFree and Kindle Unlimited Books
  • Buttons Geo-Targeted to Visitor Location
  • Earn Commission on Book Promotions
  • Increase ‘likes’ and ‘shares’
  • Quick & Easy Installation
  • Clean Responsive Design

Your visitors will love our dynamically updated news feed that keeps your site continually fresh with new content and links to top quality free books, and we provide you with nicely formatted newsfeeds for all the major book genres.

You will see an increase in social engagement on your site because our content is extremely popular and it receives a lot of organic ‘likes’ and ‘shares’. Your visitors will love this content too and will naturally want to share it. Just add social buttons to the bottom of your site (if you have not already done so) and when people do engage, it will be your site that gets shared.

And you will earn commissions paid directly to you via ClickBank every time a visitor purchases the book submission offer from your site.
