What is Findaway Voices and how can it help me?
Spotify’s Findaway Voices helps authors publish and distribute their audiobooks globally. Kickstarter authors offering audiobooks as a backer reward can request free Spotify redemption codes once their project has been successfully funded.
When your audiobook is ready, you can publish it to Spotify and major retailers and libraries through Findaway. You’ll receive as many redemption codes as you need for your backers on Kickstarter and you’ll receive another 100 complimentary redemption codes for each published title to use as you’d like in your marketing and promotions. Plus, publishing your audiobook on Spotify puts your work in front of their audience of millions of listeners and eligible premium subscribers.
How can I distribute the audiobook redemption codes to my backers?
Once your project is successfully funded on Kickstarter and you are ready to fulfill, the next step is to create a project on Findaway Voices, upload your audiobook, and distribute it. To get started, fill out the backer code submission form. Someone from Findaway Voices by Spotify will respond within 5 days with your free redemption codes.
The Findaway Voices by Spotify team is available to help at any step, email them at email@example.com for assistance.
Can anyone find my audiobook once it’s on Spotify?
Yes! Your audiobook will be findable on Spotify. Users can purchase it to listen to, or eligible Spotify Premium subscribers in select markets can play it using their 15 listening hours a month.
If I take advantage of this service, would I be able to publish my audiobook on other platforms or would I have to publish exclusively on Spotify?
This partnership provides authors with free redemption codes for their Kickstarter backers on Spotify. You will need to select Spotify as one of your distribution platforms. You can choose where your book is published including Audible, Apple, Barnes & Noble, Chirp, Hoopla, Kobo, and many others.
Will Spotify take a cut of any of my pledges?
Findaway Voices by Spotify will not take any cut of your pledges for providing free redemption codes.
What if my project doesn’t get successfully funded? Can I still work with Findaway Voices?
The redemption codes are only available for backers of successfully funded projects. If your project was not successfully funded on Kickstarter, but you're interested in tapping into Findaway's distribution services, please visit them at FindawayVoices.com.
For my project, I want to make more than one audiobook available to my backers. Will I receive redemption codes for each audiobook?
Yes, each successfully funded Kickstarter project, even ones with multiple titles, receives free redemption codes for their backers. In addition, every title receives an extra 100 redemption codes that can be used to distribute audiobooks to whomever you choose.
