The Audible Creation Exchange is a service that allows authors to have audiobooks generated from their novels. The online marketplace is populated by narrators and sound engineers that simplify the production process in exchange for royalty shares. In order to attract new users to the platform, Audible has just unveiled an ambitious new program that allows authors to give a copy of their audiobook away for free and earn money while doing so.
The essence of the new Audible program is allowing authors to generate codes and use them for self-promotion. Whenever a new user clicks on the code and registers an account, the audiobook is automatically added to their cart. When a user uses their free credit to download the authors audiobook, the author earns a $50 Bounty.
Not only is the Audible 30-Day Free Trial link a great way to invite fans to the joys of listening to your work, it introduces them to medium of audiobooks — great news for your future audio sales.
