Aerio allows you to upload ebooks for free, to sell on their own or to sell alongside print books.
To enable an ebook as a Free Giveaway, you must first sign up for a Subscription plan. To learn more about our subscription plans and how to sign-up, see: Why do I need an Aerio Subscription?
Once you have signed-up for a Subscription, you can enable an ebook as a free giveaway in two ways:
- Schedule a free giveaway on a single ebook title - see instruction here:
- Schedule a free giveaway to group of ebook titles - see instructions below:
