I don’t care how brilliant your new Kindle ebook is. It won’t sell itself. If you have recently published a Kindle book, you may have already discovered that sales are slow, or nonexistent.
What you need to do is start actively marketing them. In this article, I am going to discuss just one strategy, but which actually combines a couple of different ways to bring attention to your Kindle books. So let’s get started.
The first thing you need to do is create a “Fan Page” on Facebook, dedicated to your book. It’s easy to do. If you already have personal Facebook page, just go there and do the necessary clicking to set up a Fan Page. It’s easy. If you don’t know how to do it, just go to the “Help Center,” which you will find under the “Account” menu in the upper right hand corner of your Facebook page.
The Fan Page alone will start drawing attention to your Kindle book. The key is to build as many members as possible by getting large numbers of people to “Like” your page. But once your Fan Page is up and running, there are many ways you can leverage it to drive even more traffic to your Kindle books, and sell them.
One way I have recently discovered combines the power of Facebook with a feature on Amazon. Kindle authors can and should create a profile page on Amazon. On this page you can do a variety of things, including write your own book reviews.
The great thing about writing book reviews is that Amazon allows you to put a live link into your review as long as that link connects to something selling on Amazon. That link, of course, should be a direct click over to your book. So every time you write a review of someone else’s book, you are creating a little ad and plug for your own book.
And now the Facebook Fan Page connection. Once your book reviews are on display on your Amazon profile page, post a link on your Facebook Fan Page, directing your Fan Page members to go read your book reviews! How simple as easy it that?
So what you are doing is leveraging the Amazon profile site to create free “ads” and links to your Kindle books, and then you are driving traffic to your Amazon book reviews with your Fan Page.
It’s just one more way to make things start happening for your Kindle publishing career. The key is to drive traffic and attention to your Kindle books in as many ways as you can. This Amazon-Facebook strategy is just one more weapon in your arsenal! The more book reviews you write, the more traffic you get. Make sure that you write high quality book reviews that are enjoyable to read, and really help the reader understand what the book is about, and what you think is good or bad about the book. Provide content with high value! When you provide readers with good quality writing and content, you build credibility and increase traffic, and win repeat traffic and customers.
This is my Facebook Fanpage where you will find tons more information on expanding the limits of your mind and intellectual capabilities, and also where you will find topics that will invite you to think outside the box… sometimes WAY out side the box!
