On My Kindle Privacy Policy and Disclosure Updates

I have made some changes to On My Kindle's Disclosure and Privacy Policy  pages that you should be aware of.

What's Going On?

A couple of days ago I'm In Marketer, a mobile app developer, approached me with an offer to sponsor On My Kindle. The company offered to create a mobile app for my blog in exchange for a spot to post content for a coupons site, I'm In. You may have noticed a new Coupons section on the blog; this is the page where content from I'm In will be posted. 

Disclosure and Privacy Policy Updates

On My Kindle's disclosure has been updated to reflect I'm In Marketer's sponsorship. It is important that you know that I am not receiving money from this sponsorship agreement; I'm In is developing and hosting a mobile app in exchange for my permission to post content solely in the Coupons section of the blog. The company has not been given permission to post content elsewhere on the blog, and I will not recommend books, products, or services that I have not read or used.

On My Kindle's privacy policy has also been updated to reflect that the blog is sponsored. By using the app provided by I'm In Marketing or the services from ImIn.com, you are agreeing to provide them, not me, with your information. How that information is used by them or other third party entities is disclosed on their websites.

Why Get a Mobile App?

Why Get a Mobile App? On My Kindle Privacy Policy and Disclosure Updates

I am getting the mobile app to increase On My Kindle's exposure. This site receives a lot of traffic from authors who want me to review their books, which is good; however, many of them are not sticking around to read my reviews. My goal is to help readers discover indie authors; I cannot do that if I am not attracting readers.

The mobile app will not only help to attract readers, but it will also allow marketing "pushes." For instance, when an author wants me to share a sale, let readers know when a book is being released, or host a giveaway on my blog; "pushes" will allow me to share this information with readers who have the app immediately. For example, one of the authors I work with is running a 2-day sale on a book and asks me to post an announcement on my blog. I can make the announcement as soon as the sale begins and readers who have the app will see this announcement almost immediately, rather than a day or two after the fact.

I have to be straight with you; my ultimate goal is to either find an online publication that will bring me on to write reviews for indie authors, or make On My Kindle big enough and reputable enough to become a trusted online publication. This will enable me to sell advertising spots, gain more sponsors, and maybe make a bit of money from affiliate sales. 

Questions? Concerns?

If you have any questions, concerns, or problems with the app or the Coupons page, please contact me directly at onmykindle1@gmail.com. I will do my best to resolve any issues that may arise.
