Enter the BookStub™ card, a handy digital tool that can help you reach active tech-savvy readers, anytime and anywhere.

What are BookStub™ cards?

These are physical and portable marketing tools that allow your readers to download your e-book on their tablets or smartphones. These come in the form of plastic cards that display your full-colour book cover on the front and a scannable quick-response code (QR code) and download instructions on the back.

Why should you use BookStub™ cards in your marketing campaign?

  • Convenient

    BookStub™ cards are handy alternatives to actual copies of your book. They are lighter and easier to carry around compared to stacks of physical books.

  • Targeted

    You can choose who you hand out BookStub™ cards to, such as readers who are likely to recommend others to purchase your book.

  • Measurable

    By tracking the number of user downloads, you can get an idea of readers' level of interest in your work.
