Something Amazing: The Promo Bay

Something amazing has happened. Author extraordinaire Paulo Coelho is on the front page of The Pirate Bay — Enemy Numero Uno of the supposedly entertainment industry.

Today, Paulo Coelho wrote on his blog about TPB’s newest feature: “Several of my books are there, and as I said in a previous post, My thoughts on SOPA, the physical sales of my books are growing since my readers post them in P2P sites.

The Promo Bay feature is simple. If you are an indie band or filmmaker or author — any type of creative individual would fit, I guess — you send TPB your information choosing up to three countries where your image/link will be featured. If TPB really does love you, you will get featured on their front page worldwide.

That’s amazing, isn’t it? AND SO SIMPLE. A platform where millions of people who go for downloads will get to see/listen to your work.

Who would you love to find on The Pirate Bay’s frontpage next time you load it?

  1. I actually haven’t used the Pirate Bay, but this is a good idea.

      @Diandra Rodriguez, it’s exposure. Not like Coelho needs any more exposure — he’s pretty famous right? but it does highlight him as an author for those who… might not know who he is.

      I wonder if, in the end, this feature turns into a “sponsored featured” though, like most magazines work nowadays.

      @Julyssa, they could always try… I’ve never bothered to check if there’s DBSK stuff on TBP hahaha, but sure~ foreign entertainment has thrived in sharing stuff.
