Available Sponsorship Packages

Package 1 - Bargain Bookshelf Promo *Most Popular*

Get a bang for your buck with IBD’s most popular sponsorship package – 30 days of site-wide exposure for your book.

  2. Bargain Scout Listing: Your book(s) will be added to our monthly Bargain Scouts listing page, part of our Book Club. (Included features: Linking to all other retailers of your book!)
  3. Dedicated post: A dedicated ‘for life’ post for your book in our ‘Bargain Book Finds’ category after the end of the promotion. (As long as your book stays within the bargain price).
