NoiseTrade: Build Audience While Boosting Your Mailing List

I’m going to look into this. What do you think?

noisetrade What if I told you there was a cool new way to share your work with the world that could help you build audience, boost your mailing list, and make money at the same time?

Welcome to NoiseTrade.

The idea is simple. Authors can upload ebooks (and audiobooks) and NoiseTrade’s community of readers can download them for free – for as long as the author wants. There is a tip-jar, and you can suggest a figure, but it’s not compulsory.

So it’s pay what you want, but with a killer twist. In exchange for the download, the reader provides their email address to the author (in full knowledge they will be contacted in future).

In other words, it’s a smart way to boost your mailing list, with the possibility of making a little money on the side too.

NoiseTrade is quite well established in the indie music scene

  1. Interesting. It sure would be nice to develop a mailing list. What about giving the first five chapters, something short of a whole book? Not trying for tips, just get the mailing list and hopefully customers who want to find out how it ends.

  2. I read the post and the discussion. The thing that worries me is the email listing and how close it is to “can-spamming” whatever that is. It would be nice to have a legitimate email list of potential new readers for new books, but I wouldn’t want to become a nuisance spammer. The people who seemed to know what they were talking about said that it was best to wait until there was a third party email administrator involved to make it less spammy.

    Interesting, idea, though. Thanks, Diana!
