I recently did a survey on people’s most burning questions and issues. One of the repeated questions was how to increase the sales of books on Amazon. A number of folk had successfully published their books, but they were lost among the millions of books on that very busy site.
“Why isn’t my books selling?” and “How can I make it known?” were two questions that popped up again and again.I realise this is a big issue for most authors so I plan to give you some suggestions over the next few weeks that might help. There are techniques and methods that will make your book stand out and be counted.
Today’s tip is to take a look at the place where your buyers are most likely to hang out... and that is the Social Media platform. Investigate some of the popular ones and then choose three that really appeal to you. Get to know them well, one at a time… and use them to the fullest extent. To start with, post at least three things a day about your book (one post on each of the three) – interesting comments, quotes, statistics, stories – to get attention – stimulate interest – arouse desire for your product – and encourage potential buyers to take action immediately and click on the link that leads them to the sales page on Amazon.
