Amazon the Retail Goliath

Amazon. Here’s how to make a retail Goliath work for you.

Hitting “visibility spots”

Amazon is the #1 search engine for books. One of your main marketing goals should be to get as much “visibility” as possible from Amazon. This means showing up high on search results for relevant keywords, in genre categories and sub-categories, and on temporary lists, like “Hot New Releases”.

To start, it’s important to understand how Amazon ranks its products. Though no one knows exactly how Amazon’s algorithm works, we know it is influenced by 3 main factors, listed here by order of importance:

  1. Daily sales: Number of times your book gets purchased or downloaded every day.
  2. Reviews: Number of reviews your book has, and the average number of stars.
  3. Time: Generally, newly-launched books get more visibility.

What can you do to work the algorithm in your favor? First, make sure you get as many sales and reviews as you can during the first week, in order to hit the “Hot New Releases” list.

Then, be clever about your metadata, and particularly the 2 genre categories you can set for your book. Look for sub-categories where the competition seems scarce (i.e. where the books on the first page have less than 100 reviews). Getting to #1 in a niche category won’t make you rich, but it will grant you a lot of visibility, which means more sales and more reviews.

The pros of “exclusivity”

Through its “KDP Select” program, Amazon incentivizes you to be “exclusive” to them. That means making your ebook available only on Amazon (no iBooks, B&N, Kobo, etc.) for a limited time.

In exchange for your 90 days of exclusivity, they’ll offer you added visibility and the possibility to run, for 5 days:

  • Either a “kindle countdown” discount: Discount your book and appear in Amazon’s “discounted ebooks” lists;
  • Or a free promotion: Make your book free and appear on the “free ebooks” lists.

These are very useful because they allow you to run a Bookbub promotion (or similar) in parallel.

Finally, if you opt-in for KDP Select, your book will also automatically be added to Kindle Unlimited (Amazon’s subscription service for readers). For some authors, Kindle Unlimited has become a non-negligeable source of revenue (and visibility!).

Whether you choose to be exclusive or not, please don’t try to “cheat” Amazon by enrolling in their Select program when your book is still available elsewhere. Amazon will find out and will penalize you.

That’s it for this course! I honestly had tons of fun writing this, and I hope you got something out of it as well. If you have any feedback or questions, you can send them to me at anelda@jazzykittypublications.com

Happy writing, and happy marketing!

Chestnut the Pup, What I Would Say If I Could Talk

Available in Hardcopy and Paperback

They encourage pet rescue and adoption because they believe that every pet deserves a family to love and care for them responsibly.

Chestnut’s mommy Anelda wrote this book to share her wonderful pup with the world and to show that animals have their own way to communicate and express themselves. Chestnut and his family would love for you to share this book with a new pet owner or animal lover close to your heart! Most importantly, give it some thought about what your pet would say if they could talk.

The Precious Jewels Monologue By Stacey Barlow

Precious JewelsCover Precious Jewels

Are You Ready to be Exposed?

In the beginning, the Earth was without form or void and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

On the sixth day, God made man and named him Adam, but did not breathe life into his nostrils until the seventh day. Adam needed a help meet so, God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and He took one of his ribs, closed up the flesh, made a woman and brought her to Adam. Because God had taken the rib, Adam states bone of my bone, flesh of my flesh, she shall be called WOMAN. Therefore, a man shall leave his father and mother and cleave unto his wife, for they are to be one flesh. The couple was NAKED and not ashamed. It wasn’t until after the eating of the tree, the knowledge of the two being naked, the woman was given a name.

Everyone, fictional or real life, has a story to tell. It would be up to them whether they want to tell you the whole truth and nothing but the truth or tell half of the truth. When they tell it, would you believe their story?

It has been said that a person has over 200 personalities {not schizophrenia} but, a way to hide your certain selves when you don’t want anyone to know the “true you.” At the end of the day, no matter what your decision will be, you are still a Precious Jewel and have Precious Jewels that need to be honored and respected. Respect yourself!
