Books are our best companions. Accessible in all forms, they keep us company on cold rainy days and are the perfect way to strike up a conversation.
And with the advent of the internet, writers are constantly looking for ways to harness the power of the digital age. Whether it’s through audiobooks or social media promotions, technology has opened up endless possibilities for writers.
Now authors can add a book link to their link tree so their social media followers can find their book listings on Amazon, Apple, Barnes and Noble, Better World, and Books-a-Million. There’s even an option to manually add alternative booksellers if you’d like to support your local independent bookstore.
“Linktree enables its users to link to everything they are in one place – be it their favorite Spotify playlist, podcast episode and now, for authors, their latest book release,” said Anthony Zaccaria, co-founder and CCO at Linktree .
Anthony Zaccaria, Linktree’s co-founder and CCO, said the reason for the new feature is the fact that over half a million Linktree users identify themselves as authors. He says, “It was a natural decision for us to create a feature that would allow our users to easily share and discover books on Linktree.”
So, how exactly do book links work?
- Book Links helps authors and publishers increase book sales and build a community on their platforms.
- For publishers and authors, you can link your books in your linktree to drive traffic to where your masterpiece is listed at leading online booksellers, making it easier to convert followers into fans of your latest book.
- The feature allows authors to promote their latest release from pre-order status to release day and beyond. For publishers, you can share links to BookTok’s latest viral sensation or Lee Child’s latest publication, connect followers and visitors to their next good read, and build a community of book lovers.
- Linktree Pro allows you, as an author involved in Apple Books, Better World Books, Books a Million, or Barnes & Noble affiliate programs, to add your affiliate tokens to your book link. This means you can earn more commissions from visitors who buy your book and track everything through analytics.
“From publishers promoting a new BookTok release, to debut authors and other book lovers, they will all be able to link books in their link tree from their favorite retailer, driving traffic and revenue directly from their link tree to achieve,” Anthony Zaccaria, Linktree Co-Founder and CCO, told Women Love Tech.
“There’s also the opportunity for authors to earn affiliate commissions from booksellers through Linktree Pro – meaning authors can maximize revenue and track engagement through analytics.
“Book Links empowers publishers and authors to connect with their audiences in new ways and build a community of book fans. This is just another step forward for Linktree to continue helping its users share their content and monetize their passions across platforms.”
