Principles of the Program:
Tips on How to Approach Businesses about Participating in This Fabulous Program!
- Self-published authors around the U.S. can join.
- LOCATIONS: Authors can choose to either (A) bring in 3 of their own participating locations, OR (B) have IBU enlist participating locations for you by providing 6 business names for us to contact (NOTE: Membership price varies, accordingly).
- LETTER: Download a personalized letter, asking readers to (A) put your book back in ‘circulation’ after they’ve read it, AND (B) reminding them to post an honest online review.
- STICKERS: Via USPS, IBU members will then receive “Indie Authors Unleashed” stickers and “Buy me!” stickers for the books they will ship.
- POSTERS: Authors will also receive really cool IBU posters to then bring to the businesses that have agreed to participate (Bring tape, too!).
- REMEMBER: Your initial membership fee with Indie Books Unleashed, LLC is for a lifetime! Any additional books that you self-publish may be listed for a reduced rate.
