Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays to All!
I've done my share. And, our Romance Books '4' Us website offers a contest every month.
As authors, we HOPE to entice readers to see our book covers. Read the blurbs. Read the excerpts. BUY our books.
Same goes for our RB4U website. We have plenty of authors/industry reps/publishers who have pages. The idea of our monthly contest is to get those eager to enter a chance to view ALL our pages by looking for something on 20 of the pages. Our hope is that while searching for an icon/dancing Santa/whatever, viewers will take time and check each page.
And, many of our RB4U website participants who have pages sponsor additional contests. You have to READ their pages to find out what they offer!
Some contests have you join a newsletter. Some have you answer questions after reading a blurb/excerpt. Some want comments on blogs.
As a potential contest entrant, what type of contests do you enjoy? Are there certain prizes that you'd rather see offered than others? Do you like the contests where ONE winner gets all the prizes...or would you rather see many winners getting only one prize?
We seem to get more entrants in our RB4U contests when we offer ONE winner all the prizes. Is this your choice?
Speaking of contests, don't miss our Dancing Santa contest at RB4U this month. 30 prizes...including a $75.00 gift card...will go to ONE lucky winner! It could be YOU! Visit our website for details: http://www.romancebooks4us.com
