Indie Author Tools to Fill Your Toolbox

At BookFunnel, we have the author’s needs in mind. We’re authors, too, you know! Our mission is to help you succeed and feel confident in self-publishing, marketing your ebook, and connecting with readers using all the tools you can dream of, from landing pages to ebook delivery.

Customized Landing Pages as Unique as Your Book

You and your book are fabulous—your landing page should be, too. We’ve got the tools that indie authors need to make their landing page shine from playing with color and text to adjusting the layout.

So, what can you use a landing page for? Just about anything you want to deliver: reader magnets, review copies via Certified Mail (for your advance reader copies, or ARCs), or selling your book using BookFunnel’s easy-to-use digital fulfillment. We’ve got you covered.

You’re In Charge

Our landing page settings allow you to control who receives your book and who doesn’t.

Download Limits

Set an expiration date or download limit and we’ll automatically shut-off downloads when it’s met.

Real-Time Stats

Monitor your download counts in real time and adjust your landing page settings as needed.

Short Audio & Audiobook Delivery

Short audio is available on all Mid-List Author plans.

Full Audiobook delivery is currently in a free, open beta. When audiobook delivery is officially released, it will be a separate paid plan that you can add onto any existing Mid-List or higher account.

Organize 1:1 Author Swaps

Get your book in front of new readers with an author swap! You send out their book, they send out yours. Super easy, super simple.

Author Swaps are available on all BookFunnel plans, including the $20/YEAR First-Time Author plan!

Swap sales links or signup links with (or simple download links for First-Time Author accounts) and get your book in front of new readers.

Find Readers With Group Promos

The Promotions board on the BookFunnel dashboard can help you find new readers! When you cross-promote with other indie authors in your genre, your book is exposed to new readers who are searching for books just like yours. Get the most out of promotions by sharing them with your mailing list and on social media, because sharing is caring (about your readers and your new author friends)!

Build Your Email List and Limit Downloads

When you sign up for the Mid-List Plan or higher, you’ve got options—like requiring readers to provide their email address before downloading your book.

Why does this matter? Because you’re working to grow and sustain your self-publishing business, and having a solid email list is a great place to start! Add in our Direct Integration feature, and we’ll send new subscribers to your list automatically.

Direct Email Integration

Take the hassle out of building your email list with BookFunnel’s simple, direct integration. Readers can sign up for your mailing list AND download your ebook all at once!

With direct integration, readers are added to your mailing list automatically. You can also create protected pages that confirm a reader is subscribed to your list before they can download your book.
