Sell More Books on Amazon. com
Why Should Your Book Be on Amazon. com?
Credibility. If your book is important, it should be available at the world's biggest book store.
Visibility. People (including members of the media) will find your book and learn about you through your appearance on Amazon. (That's how I got into Woman's Day magazine.)
Money. You will sell books you wouldn't have sold otherwise. Many buyers won't buy from your Web site or other sources, but will buy at Amazon. And, Amazon pays like clockwork.
Get Your Book Listed on Amazon. com
To participate in Advantage, you must have distribution rights, and your book must have a scannable barcode of the ISBN.
Once your book is listed, you can also sell it directly to consumers through Amazon Marketplace. You will find more information about this on the Advantage information page listed above.
As an Associate, you get a commission on book sales referred from your Web site. Why send people to Amazon from your Web site? Some people won't buy from you. They don't know you and they don't trust you. But they do trust Amazon. Or, maybe they want to qualify for free shipping.
Enhance Your Book's Detail Page
Search Inside the Book
This is controversial, but many publishers say they sell more books as a result of SITB. My sales seemed to go up after my book was in. You send Amazon a copy of your book, they scan it and make the entire book searchable. It increases the chances your book will come up during searches on the Amazon. com web site. You'll find information on the Advantage page.
