BookFunnel is a software company which offers services to deliver book files to readers. It enables delivery of digital files in every format to every device and can be used for reader magnets, advanced review copies (ARCs), direct sales and in-person sales among other things. While it does include marketing tools too, it is not a marketing platform specifically.
BookFunnel essentially handles the book delivery process, which means that besides delivering the book, it also deals directly with any problems readers might have during the download. So the greatest advantage for writers and publishers alike is that they don’t have to deal with any technical issues or questions from readers. BookFunnel is also available as a mobile app.
What can BookFunnel deliver?
All the download links are private, so no one can find a book unless the author or publisher chooses to share the BookFunnel link. If the link gets shared with an audience which wasn’t the one the author or publisher intended, BookFunnel will replace it. BookFunnel also offers real-time stats so that authors and publishers know who is downloading their book.
One of these is StoryOrigin, which includes similar features to BookFunnel in terms of reader magnet delivery, but it also offers marketing tools to increase sales and the author rank on Amazon.
Lastly, ProlificWorks (formerly Instafreebie) offers a similar service to BookFunnel to deliver exclusively free reader magnets or books and build a contact list.
