Every audiobook you do through ACX will be given 100 US and UK promo codes that you can use to market your audio and get reviews. And now, the narrator, that’s me, also gets codes. These are basically free money; we get paid every time someone uses a code for our audiobook. This is a great way for us to promote each other.
The following are ways in which you can use them! We can also work together, doing a large giveaway or an audiobook tour. Just let me know what you want to do!
While there are some Audiobook specific sites where you can market, promoting the book in different ways (like Bookbub, Fb, Twitter, newsletters etc.) will also have a great impact on the audio!
Make sure that Whispersync is set up for the Audiobook. If it has not been set up, please contact email@example.com to get the book synced. Most readers will grab the audio if whispersynced because it is offered at a discount that way.
- Audiobook Boom– audiobookboom.com is a great way to get reviewers! Cost is $12 per book, but you make that back and more. Enter the title, and in the next week, you will receive a link to people who want to review your book. You simply email people on the list with the code and link.
- Love & Lace Inkorporated– (ROMANCE GENRE ONLY) https://www.dragonflyinkpublishing.com This is an online and physical quarterly publication designed for Romance readers! It is extremely affordable to put an ad in for a spotlight, Audiobook Feature/new release, Character Interview, Author Interview, etc.
- AudiobookObsessionReviewTeam– These ladies offer a team of over 400 audiobook reviewers. You simply give them your codes and they get you reviews. They also do Release tours, blitz, IG tour, etc. GREAT resource
- Audiobook Obsession– https://www.facebook.com/AudiobookObsession/ They also do Release tours, Release Blitz and IG tours. The Review tour is probably the best at getting the word out! Many authors have had great success!

I’m a member of all these groups and have seen the fantastic work they do to help us authors and narrators. Other ways I help promote is through my podcast. Gina Talks Books. In my podcast, I talk about books I’ve narrated, wrote, or reviewed. It’s a great way to connect with other authors and have special guest.
Another great engaging tool is for the narrator to upload a video to facebook groups who promote audibles with a reading from the booth to help build buzz for the author we are producing for. This will build recognition for when the book is live.
I hope all this information helps you with the success of your audible and always feel free to reach out to me with a question or concern.
