Has anyone ever promoted a book by indicating to its target audience that a portion of the proceeds would be donated to a charity or non-profit cause? and if so, do you have to indicate how much? Is that even allowed?
Moreso- is it even advisable to conduct a promotion like this with a specific book by stating that purpose in its description if the book would be written to intentionally help support a certain cause?
Just thinking about how some items in retail disclose that a portion of the sales would be donated to "ABC" cause and just considered taking that as a model to help future works.
Many of us have done this. It can backfire on you. People sometimes walk away from a book because they do not like the charity. Others are suspicious of your motives. What I do is just give to charities I support as a seperate exercise. I did sponsor an athlete to go to an international event this year and she chose to advertise my help which was nice but not needed. I also supply short stories to a few anthologies where the proceeds, 100 percent, go to charity. If you want to sell books, write lots of good books and put good covers on them. Then you can use your profits however you like.
Well, it depends how you can connect NPCO (Non profit charity organization). Best approach to use this option is to connect them and mark them in book recitation page. It can create great value for definitely, will create loyalty. Hence increase in sale and your profit.
