An easy way for your book review site to earn more money! Now you can give your users an easy way to get notified when an author they like publishes a new book. The service is provided for free by Pushpig.
How it works:
- You install and activate this plugin.
- You add a short code with the author name and your Amazon Affiliate ID
- A link is generated – after the reader clicks on it, they will be taken to a special page on Pushpig to sign-up. After they have, they will be returned to your site. In the future, they will receive an email whenever the author publishes a new book. The email contains a link to Amazon and uses your Amazon Affiliate ID, so you get the affilate money from Amazon!
- Upload pp-author-track.zip to your WordPress site via Admin->Plugins->Add New->Upload
- Active the plugin Author Track by Pushpig
- In any post add the shortcode [author_track author=”Robin Hobb” amazon_id=”pushpig-20″], replacing Robin Hobb with the author you want your readers to track, and pushpig-20 with your Amazon affiliate ID.
Is this free?
How do I get paid?
Whenever a reader of your’s gets alerted to a new release, the email contains a link to Amazon with your Amazon affilate code. If the reader buys anything – you can get a commision. Easy money!
