A giveaway of one hundred eBooks for that price is not a great deal. On my most recent giveaway, I paid $75 to FREEBOOKSEY, a promotional site, and got over 1400 downloads. The reason I went with the Goodreads giveaway was for the reviews. Goodreads encourages all the winners to give a review of the book. Since this is a site for readers with multiple book clubs I expected to get quite a bit of reviews. Not a hundred. I figured some would still refuse to give a review or even a rating. I figured I would get at least fifty percent, but I would accept twenty-five percent. So, what did I get? After three months I have gotten 3 reviews/ratings. A big disappointment.
I would not recommend this giveaway to anyone. To me, it is a rip-off. Amazon is charging way too much for this. I did get some sales from the giveaway. Unfortunately, I didn’t make enough to justify the cost.
