Theres a ton to getting your e-book noticed. It wont take you long after you understand it all to start climbing the ranks to the top!
*QUALITY Cover Dont screw around with this one. The cover is the first thing your readers see. They will judge your book by its cover. And you cant ever remove a first impression unless you know how to brainwash or erase someones memory. A top notch effective cover draws in potential buyers and this means youve got a shot at selling your books.
*Superb Title When potential buyers are looking for your book they have the cover and title to go by initially. This means you need to make sure you use keywords in your title to first drive your book into the path of your target audience and then capture them with an impressive title. Not too long and drawn out but just enough to create interest.
*SEO/Keyword Optimized Description Your description has to get the attention of the Google Crawlers and your audience. It needs to be loaded with power verbs and sales writing that demands attention.
-Tell them what the book is about
-Get them excited about it
-Convince them why they should buy your masterpiece
-Ask them to buy it
Youve got to be direct and open with your audience and use the top keywords relevant to your niche and category in your description. Its those precious keywords that hold the power to traffic and sales. Keep your description short, sweet and powerful. Also make it inviting and alive and youre definitely on track.
*Reviews If you want to drive buying traffic to your book you MUST get VERIFIED reviews! Whats a verified review? Its a review by someone who has purchased and read your book so its more legit. One route to do this is through Facebook groups that swap with each other for honest reviews. They will buy your book to read and review if youll do the same for them. Its a process that takes time but is necessary because there arent many people that are just going to review your book even after they have read it.
Also make sure you have a clause in your book asking for reviews. Definitely cant hurt when youre figuring out how to market a book!
K That should be enough to get you started. Keep your mind open to learning different marketing tactics and strategies and whatever you do just dont quit and you WILL succeed!
