The right way to save your book’s Amazon sales page link

Amazon sales page link

Ever wonder why some of the reviews on your book’s Amazon sales page are removed by Amazon?

It could be because of the way you saved and shared your Amazon sales page link.

There’s a right way and a wrong way to do it. When you do it the wrong way, you’re signaling to Amazon that you shared the link with lots of people.

When you do it the right way, Amazon doesn’t know that book buyers and reviewers got the link to your book’s sales page from you rather than on their own.

So how do you do it the right way?

It’s easy. Watch this short, two-and-a half-minute video to find out how.

Book review: Sell More Books With Less Social Media

Sell More Books

I’m a fan of Chris Syme’s, so it’s no surprise that I like her newest book, Sell More Books With Less Social Media: Spend less time marketing and more time writing.

There’s no question that Chris knows what she’s talking about. What’s more, she communicates clearly and effectively. As I was reading, just as I reached a point where I thought, “It would help me to see this in a chart,” POOF! a chart appeared! She understands what her readers need.

Memoir author’s book marketing success story

Memoir author's book marketing success story

I met freelance writer Jen Miller when she took the inaugural Build Book Buzz Book Marketing 101 e-course several years ago.

At the time, she had just authored a regional travel guide to the Jersey shore. Today, she’s coming off the successful launch of her memoir, Running: A Love Story: 10 Years, 5 Marathons, and 1 Life-Changing Sport from Seal Press (March 2016 publication date).

I’ve been following Jen’s book marketing activities through her Facebook posts and have been impressed not only with her effort, but with the results, as well. She has done a masterful job of leveraging her skills, experience, and platform to create a book marketing success story.

I recently asked Jen several questions about how she marketed her memoir. I hope her experience inspires you!

Goal setting for authors

Les Brown goal quote

According to research, goal setters accomplish more than those who don’t set goals. What’s more, people who write down their goals are 42 percent more likely to achieve them simply by writing them down.

This is why goal setting for authors is so important.

Give yourself an advantage:

  1. Put thought into what you want to accomplish in 2017.
  2. Write that down.
  3. Create a plan that will help you get there.

Facebook 101 for authors

By Joel Pitney

When I bring up Facebook to my author clients, the responses range from “What’s the relationship between book sales and vacation selfies?” to “I know Facebook is important, but I have no idea why or how to leverage it for my book.” But I’ve found Facebook, when used effectively, to be the most effective social media outlet for authors to drive traffic to their websites and build exposure for their books.

In this article, I’ll address some of the key decisions that authors face when launching or refining their Facebook campaigns. I will also outline the best practices I’ve found to be most helpful.
