What other authors have to say...

The ability to find authors of similar genres and connect to their audiences, and actually track clicks and connections, is the best audience growth multiplier I've found.

I've been swapping newsletters through StoryOrigin for 4 years!... It's quick, it's easy, I've increased my subscribers, and I've increased the people buying my books through this system!

For the past three years, StoryOrigin has been an integral part of my success strategy for new releases... I average 200+ clicks during release week from StoryOrigin newsletter swaps...

My newsletter swaps with other authors in my genre on StoryOrigin have become one of my main marketing strategies. My readers love that I share new books by other authors for them to grab, especially between my own book launches.

StoryOrigin's dashboard is above the rest of the competition. The interface is more user-friendly and gives me lots of data in an easy, accessible format. The process is easy to set up and easy to utilize.

This service makes newsletter swaps between individual authors SO MUCH EASIER than doing them manually on your own. They are no longer a time suck!

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 newsletter swap is where I share your book link in my newsletter and vice versa (you include my book in one of your newsletters).

I have 0 subscribers. Can I still do newsletter swaps?

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

What happens if someone doesn't fulfill their end of a swap?

If an author doesn't promote a book that they have agreed to promote, that will be publicly visible on their profile on StoryOrigin.

Other authors will then be less likely to accept or request a swap with that author.

Can I use newsletter swaps to build my mailing list?

Yes, many authors 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 authors will want to promote your Reader Magnet (the page you use to build your mailing list).

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.
