NetGalley Marketing Programs for 2014
Dedicated Feed Your Reader eblasts, targeted to specific members (Price dependent on target list and number of titles included; Minimum $500 / £350)
Our eblasts are extraordinarily successful and our most popular marketing program. Target the community in the way you want—by genre interest, member type, country—and promote one title or many titles. This is a great way to run a special promotion (such as offering limited-time access, or announcing a new series/author/imprint), or generate activity for a particular title or author. We can share many creative examples including two-tiered campaigns with a follow-up eblast. Reserve a date via this form, and we’ll follow-up with you to discuss details and budget.
New! Featured Title Bundle: Placement in new “Featured” category, and on NetGalley homepage ($500 / £350 per title for a full week)
Give your title visible exposure in a new “Featured” category in the NetGalley catalog, and on our homepage, for one bundled price. The Featured category appears in the top navigation, as well as on the catalog landing page, and is limited to 15 titles or less at any time. The catalog is by far the most heavily trafficked area of the NetGalley site, and the homepage averages 35,000 views per week. The order in which titles appear in the homepage carousel is randomized, so each title will appear often in the first spot. Your title will be featured in both places for a full week, clickable to its request page. Reserve a date via this form.
"First Taste" widget promotion: great for new publishers or debut authors! ($500 / £350 per title for a full week; reaches members worldwide)
Let your title be the FIRST one new members get from NetGalley! We include a secure widget in our daily welcome emails to new members, each day for a full week, reaching between 900-1,200 in total. Click here for an example. A great way to give dedicated exposure to a debut author/series, or expand the audience for a particular author or title. Plus, new publishers/authors can take advantage of our “look who else is new to NetGalley!” hook and we’ll include a link to all your titles in the catalog. Reserve a date via this form.
NetGalley Newsletters: Librarian or Genre-specific Roundups, including new “Featured” category! ($250/£175 - $300/£210 per title; reaches members worldwide)
