What other authors have to say...

I'm new to StoryOrigin with a tiny subscriber list but the first three group promos I applied for I was accepted.

Group Promos with StoryOrigin are great and super easy to either create or participate in. It's one of my go-to marketing strategies.

I especially love the group promos section of StoryOrigin. I doubled the size of my mailing list by entering my reader magnet in 3 promos!

Organizers of group promos have been especially accommodating to authors with small audiences and those just beginning to build one.

I participate in about 2 newsletter builders per month. I gather about 100 subscribers per month. Before I gathered them through another service, which was more expensive and had about the same results for me.

Nearly every cross-promo either with Newsletter Swaps or Group Promos increases my sales, noteworthy by a clear spike on that day.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Do I need to share my subscriber list?

No, you don't share your subscriber's contact info with other authors.

A group promo is where you and multiple other authors share a link to a landing page across your newsletters or social media.

I have 0 subscribers. Can I still do join group promos?

Yes! Many authors have started with 0 subscribers, and you can too! You can request to join group promos even if you have 0 subscribers on your mailing list.

What happens if someone doesn't promote a group promo?

If an author doesn't promote a group promo that they've joined, that will be publicly visible on their profile on StoryOrigin.

Other authors will then be less likely to accept or request cross-promotions with that author.

Can I use group promos to build my mailing list?

Yes, many group promo organizers that see your list with 0 subscribers will want to see you succeed, and they know that for you to succeed, you need to grow your mailing list.

Thus, many of those group promo organizers will accept your Reader Magnet (the page you use to build your mailing list) into their group promo.

Why do authors recommend StoryOrigin?

Is there a 5 star rating system on this? Because StoryOrigin is at least 6 stars. At least! I've used the other platforms... and none of them approach the flexibility and power of StoryOrigin

I used to use several sites and groups to facilitate things like newsletter swaps, multi-author book promos, reader magnets, and reviews, but I can do it all and better on StoryOrigin.

I love StoryOrigin. I've used other sites for promotions and newsletter swaps but this one is easier and more author-focused. Highly recommend for new or serious authors.

... compared to a lot of similar sites designed to help authors, StoryOrigin has the best UI, the most features and a great community of authors.
