I have just recently signed up to Netgalley sand I have just finished reading my first ever ARC. The Book Advocate Toolkit had some really usual advice and how to go about setting up an account, requesting ARCs and how to go about reviewing.

The NetGallery's Book Advocate Toolkit.

This is a great toolkit to pick up and use immediately to develop reading advocacy skills. It's a document with something to learn for all new reviewers and seasoned readers.
The toolkit is easy to read and follow. Colour, visual prompts, and font size direct the reader to different toolkit sections and provide links for further information.
The toolkit flows well, with information about joining NetGallery, tips about writing book reviews, and tips about using social media to share reviews and books.

I will continue to refer to this toolkit as my journey as a reading advocate progresses.

Thank you, NetGalley, for the opportunity to review this toolkit.

This is a very helpful and approachable toolkit for starting your journey on NetGalley. When I started last year, I found it quite overwhelming and did not have this toolkit then. As I attempted to try NetGalley again this year, I believe this toolkit is something I will be referring back to and use quite often. The graphics and colours make it a lot more fun and straightforward. I liked that they give you tips on how to up your feedback ratio too.

This toolkit is the perfect resource for NetGalley members! When I first joined NetGalley, I wasn’t sure how to get started and afraid to “make a mistake”. (Recovering perfectionist here 🙋‍♀️) This toolkit provides an excellent overview of what you need to know about NetGalley, with tips for reviewing books, and helpful resources for reviewing on other platforms, like blogs and social media. With links for more info, this is a great for even seasoned NetGalley members to reference as needed. I’m so thankful to have found this toolkit when I did, to help me make the most of my NetGalley account.

does what it says on the tin. most of the content was irrelevant to me, but the section on goodreads was easy to follow and implement. i have a better idea of what is expected of me as a netgalley reviewer, and that's all i wanted out of this document.

This is very insightful and helpful to netgalley newcomers, as a refresher to others, or even if you're going in a different direction in what platform you're going to use.
Lots of handy tips, food for thought, and useful links to click that take you straight to the additional advice pages.

I absolutely adore this toolkit. As an influencer who posts on both Instagram and TikTok, this kit highlighted the stark difference of each platform's culture. While Instagram feels more curated and intentional, it's very contrasting to TikTok's fast-moving environment. I have never factored the difference of environment before this, and it's very helpful in helping me decide how I move forward as a content creator for both platforms.

This toolkit gives SO many tips on how to get established with NetGalley, stay organized and on top of reviews, how to write reviews, and how to build your review platform. It is extremely helpful, even gives tips on what to do if you are stuck on writing a review. Great tool for anyone new to NetGalley or trying to start a book blog/vlog on social media platforms!

Sehr gute und praktische Tipps für Buchblogger! Ich konnte definitiv einiges für mich mitnehmen und werde die Ratschläge umsetzen und hoffe natürlich auch, dass sie helfen werden.

Ich kann das Buch jedem empfehlen, der sich eine Buchbloggerseite aufbauen möchte und noch Probleme hat, sich eine Reichweite aufzubauen.
