What are the benefits of listing my book(s) on NetGalley?

NetGalley is a cost-effective way to reach a growing community of influential readers (media, reviewers, booksellers, librarians, bloggers, and educators) who can read, review and recommend your book(s).

On average, over 80% of our monthly traffic is represented by repeat visitors who regularly visit NetGalley to see what books are available for request. In addition to the organic exposure your book will receive from being on the site, we also offer a variety of marketing programs to reach our members.

We offer many ways to interact with our member community:

  1. Use our email invite widget to invite your own contacts to view your book. The widget provides a direct, pre-approved link to view your book(s) on NetGalley, in a variety of secure reading options. The widget is the primary tool publishers and authors are using to put their digital review copies in the hands of influencers and recommenders.
  2. Books listed under "Find Titles" on www.netgalley.com are available for NetGalley members to request or read, depending on your settings. You have full control over all approvals/declines for any requests, and can view a profile for each member requesting a book.
  3. Members who are approved for your content can provide Feedback about your book through NetGalley. This can include star ratings, a review, and information about how the member will recommend or promote the book.
  4. Subscription clients also receive a Publisher Profile page which houses all of your books, including those previously on NetGalley and now for sale. Members can also “add you as a favorite” to aid in their browsing. 

Note that our membership community is not personally vetted by NetGalley, as we believe publishers and authors know best the readers who are most useful for them. This is why we ensure you have full control over who you approve or decline. You can always view the detailed profile of each member who requests a book before making your decision.

Digital review copies can be read on all major reading devices and tablets and are protected files that cannot be shared.
