Q & A

Why should someone buy this store?

We currently have 18k subscribers, our social media following is growing daily, and with the time and effort, it could easily double in no time. It was culled down from 30k six months ago to unsubscribe anyone who hadn't opened a newsletter in six months. All the subscribers have come from either Instafreebie book giveaways of my books (paranormal romance pen name is Eden Ashe) or book- related giveaways to ensure they were readers. Our social media following is currently:

Twitter: 3980 Instagram: 724 Facebook page: 4359 Facebook Author Group: 700 authors Book Review Group: 815 Giveaway Group: 1.2k

How can the future owner improve the business?

I have kept the service options small over the last year due to family health issues and my own clinical depression, but RtD has the groundwork to be a force to be reckoned with. I have affiliate accounts with Barnes and Noble and audiobooks.com. You can also use Amazon Affiliates to make extra income from the newsletters.

Some of our previous services that have been paused this year, but were money makers were our list- building giveaways geared toward readers in the author's genre, review service for authors, multi-author giveaways for building either social media following or newsletters, and our multi-newsletter blast could be huge with enough time and attention.

What work have you put into the store?

I have switched the store from Wordpress to Shopify to streamline, though the WP option will come with KingSumo giveaway builder which is an effortless, amazing way to run giveaways and gain subscribers for you and clients. We have a giveaway group for readers to win gift cards and free books, and a review group for those willing to read and review books. Last year, RtD first full year, it brought in $25,000. It would have bought in more, but after my mom was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer and my clinical depression, plus my day job and author career, I couldn't give it the time or attention it needed to keep growing.
