NetGalley's Book Advocate Toolkit


I only recently discovered the extra resources available on NetGalley's website which included their "Book Advocate Toolkit." Advertised to help new and experienced reviewers alike, I wanted to see what tips I could glean.

The Toolkit basically takes someone new to NetGalley and walks them through every aspect: setting up a  profile, determining membership type, selecting books, checking publisher approval preferences (i.e. knowing what type of reviewer a publisher is most likely to approve). Readers also will learn tips on good reviews (including some do's/don'ts) and how to keep one's review ratio high. The kit also contains links to external articles for additional help on various topics. 

More experienced reviewers will find pointers on improving content as well as expanding their social media presence. Readers are introduced to starting accounts for Book Blogging, Bookstagram (IG), Booktubers (YouTube), or Booktok (TikTok). 

The next section includes tips for being organized, strategizing, and planning for growth. Also tips on fabulous photos, graphics and hashtags. Lots of really great content to help anyone at any level improve their reviews and online engagement. 

The NetGalley Book Advocate Toolkit is truly an all-encompassing resource that offers a treasure trove of suggestions and ideas to help every reviewer succeed. Well done and highly recommended! 

Disclaimer: I received a free digital copy of "NetGalley's Book Advocate Toolkit" from NetGalley for the purpose of review. No other compensation was received.
