As I read through How to Sell More Books on Amazon, it became clear to me that this book could appeal to two different audience types:
- The author who has no idea how to utilize Amazon.com in their marketing efforts, but desires a presence there
- The author who is on Amazon.com but feels that they are not taking full advantage of what Amazon.com can do to help them sell more books
But getting your book, physical or Kindle, on Amazon.com is only half the battle. Dana not only shows you how to do that, but she also spends time on things like the importance of making sure your cover helps market your book, how to use features like the "Look Inside" and how to optimize your Amazon Connect Author Page.
If the book stopped there, it would be a valuable resource to any author who wanted to get their own book on Amazon.com. But Dana beefs up her book even more by walking you through all the marketing opportunities and potentials you have at your disposal once your book is listed with Amazon.com. Things like how to use Listmania Lists, reviews, tags and customer communities are just a taste of what she covers to help you market your book on Amazon.com.
As I said earlier, Amazon.com is one of the best places to have your book listed. But there are so many option available to an author on Amazon.com that it can quickly become intimidating. One of my favorite features in How to Sell More Books on Amazon are the Essential Activities lists and the Optional Activities lists. Dana helps you understand what you "must" do vs. what you "can" do in order to launch a strong Amazon.com marketing campaign.
