How to Create a Free Trial Page for Audible Featuring Your Audiobook

***Before I launch into the post proper, I just wanted to say that I still have some promo codes from Audible which allow me to gift copies of my audiobooks for free. Thus, if anyone would like a copy of the audiobook of Sensation, please send me your email address and whether you prefer the Audible US or Audible UK store.

So here's something cool I just learned how to do. As many of you may know, Audible (which is the Amazon subsidiary that handles audiobooks) offers a free 30-day trial membership, including two credits for free audiobooks.  However, it appears that you can actually customize the page showing the trial offer so that it features your audiobook.  For instance, here's what I did with Sensation:





As stated, it's a customized Free Trial Page for Audible featuring Sensation!  Pretty cool, huh?  And it was actually pretty easy to do.  Simply type the following into the address bar of your internet browser:  

    http://www.audible.com/offers/30free?asin=


Then, at the end, add your audiobook's ASIN, which is different than the Amazon ASIN.  (If you go to your audiobook's product page on Audible, you'll see the ASIN in the address bar - it should be the 10 characters before "/ref".)  So, for my book, it was: 



Anyway, I stole this idea shamelessly from a post by Scott Jacobi on the ACX blog, so he has my thanks for introducing me to something so awesome.  (And for those trying this, "asin" needs to be lower case in the address bar.) Hopefully others will find this as cool as I did.
