The Best Way to Succeed. Advance. Progress.
HotZippy specializes in bringing readers and writers together.
How do we do this?
Advertisers, Authors and Publishers (collectively known as Advertisers) visit our Author Portal on HotZippyNet and select a promotional plan that best suits their needs and marketing budget. Once decided, the Advertiser is directed to the proper SmartZip© Promo Plan Form to choose the qualifying eBook promotional site(s), submit and then purchase the advertisement.
Our editorial staff will then review the submission, ensuring that the book meets a set of basic quality criteria and is a good fit for the site(s) chosen by the Advertiser. We then schedule a presentation of the title to the appropriate sites and communities.
If you’re a reader, here’s your chance to find hundreds of free and discounted eBooks every single month. If you’re an author, you can review any of our sites to examine the types of books that are being offered so you can choose the best fit for your marketing plan and eBook.
In the end, readers get books, authors get readers and we get the satisfaction of knowing no quality book needs to languish, hidden away or lost in obscurity when even a single soul might find, somewhere in those electronic pages something to love; something to read again and again. In our universe, we want no author to go unread and no reader to be without great books to read.
Unlike the majority of promotional eBook services, we openly accept new writers and newly released books that haven’t yet met a specific review quota; the eternal and frustrating gatekeeper that haunts unestablished wordsmiths. After all, how does an author find readers to create those oh-so-necessary reviews if the author can’t promote his or her book to readers?
Of course, not every title will qualify due to quality issues or other areas where for whatever reason we may need to decline a promotion, but we are looking for heart and soul more than a slew of follow-the-leader reviews … or worse, unethically obtained (ie; paid) positive reviews.
It’s all about the words and that special bond they create between the hearts and minds of the writer and his or her awaiting, potentially unaware fans. Let’s all work together to make sure everyone walks away happy, proud and fulfilled.
Thank you for considering HotZippy as your eBook promotional destination.
Here's to health, here's to wealth and may you never doubt yourself.
In April, Bargain eBook Hunter and the company, now known as HotZippy LLC celebrate its 5th birthday! In May, HotZippyNet, the advertiser backend of the business, releases a much anticipated relaunch of its Author's Portal with new promotional plans and offers.
Romance eBook Deals is launched just in time to take advantage of the Valentine's Day rush and romance authors begin promoting in earnest with our company. In April, HotZippy LLC is officially formed. In August the company moves its headquarters to Jacksonville, North Carolina. 13 Horror Street, a new genre-specific site is launched and is immediately adopted by a small, but voracious community of readers.
We are contacted by another company regarding a sales offer and in December the sale of Romance eBook Deals is completed and a new promotional site is added to our lineup.
In March both sites begin offering authors the opportunity to promote not only free Kindle books, but those priced $0.99 and above. The business, at that point still a sole proprietorship, experiences growth of 386% by year's end.
In April Bargain eBook Hunter is launched in Richmond, Virginia and begins promoting free and bargain Kindle books. In December a new site is made public to offer more involved free and bargain listings for users with Kindle Fire tablets--Pixelscroll is an immediate success!
