    So everyone knows that with kindle direct publishing you get 5 days of free promotion. During those 5 days your book is free.

    This boost your rankings... which is great, so when people search your keyword, it allows you to be further up on the list. Hopefully 1st page.

    So I have a few questions though...


    1. Are you able to promote on other sites? - I read that you cant do this if your using KDPS... something about only promoting on their site.

    2. BUT I also heard you can promote during the free period... Not sure if its true or not.

    3. Where can you promote if you can? -- I know about smashwords... but I believe they charge? Also Booksdaily... they charge too i think

    4. I heard there are places you can promote legally and they do not charge... but I think they were in older posts... so Maybe things have changed in the kindle world? Im not sure...


    ANy information would help. Its a self help book... So its gonna be hard for me to find a category in FB... Once i start writing fiction Ill probably market through FB... but like I said. Its self help... So i dont really see people searching for it unless they have this problem. And if they do, they will probably search amazon not facebook.



    EDIT:::
    ALso, is there any free/paid programs that can help track your sales/downloads? Also any other cool tools would be helpful. Thanks!
