Hello followers, fans, and friends!
I’m very excited to invite you all to be a member of the Elise Kova Street Team! This is a special group that is designed to be composed of people who are excited about my books and are enthusiastic about spreading the word. Depending on what numbers you believe there’s somewhere between 600,000 and 1,000,000 books published each year in the U.S. With all of the options how do people find books they want to read?
The best way is word of mouth.
You never know who curls up with a book that you recommended in passing. If you think that hypothetical book-lover could enjoy a YA Fantasy Romance written by yours truly and you’re willing to tell them then I’d like to invite you to join my street team!
I know asking you to keep my book top-of-mind in your day-to-day life is a lot. So, along with my gratitude, you’ll have a few other perks being a member of the Elise Kova Street Team. Expect changes as I hope to make some of the perks better as time goes on, but for now Street Team members can expect:
- Acceptance into an exclusive Facebook group to share your thoughts, talk to me, and engage with other fans
- A drawing each release month for a $15 Amazon gift card (TWO WINNERS)
- Promotional materials to give out, showing all your friends how cool you are
- Promotional materials to keep for yourself, to remind yourself how cool you are
- Autographed copies of books, bookmarks, postcards, and more
- Exclusive Q&A sessions or live “hangouts”
Still unclear as to what it takes to be an Elise Kova Street Team member? Here are some things that Street Team members are encouraged to do. I want each member only to do what they feel comfortable with, every little bit goes a long way!
- Tell people you know about the books and share with friends & family to help spread the word
- Buy the books during the first week of release – this helps get books on bestseller lists
- Ask your local library to order my books, give the librarians the title, name, and link
- Leave promo materials at local book stores, coffee shops, or library – with permission!
- Signal boost my social posts and post your own
- Join in any big social pushes for releases or announcements
- Feature interviews, reviews, excerpts or anything else on your blog, website, Facebook, etc…
- Visit during online appearances like chats and blog tours
- Connect me with people you know who you think would be interested
- Review the books as soon as possible at online retailers with your (honest) thoughts
At the end of the day I want people who want to share my excitement and want to help spread the word. You don’t need to have a million followers to do this.
