Marketing Kindle Books: Resources for New e-Book Authors

Tips for Improving your Kindle book marketing

If you're a newly published author of Kindle e-books, here are tips and resources to help you market your books and boost your Amazon rankings.

You'll find book reviews, a growing list of sites for your KDP promotions, ideas on how to create a Squidoo page for your book, information about Amazon's Author Central, a reminder (and a place) to tweet your free promotions, and a whole lot more.

My name's Barbara Casey and I'm the author and self-publisher of three Kindle e-books (so far). I'm learning the ropes of marketing Kindle books because I'd love to earn my living as a writer... and that means selling loads of books at $.99 each.

I'm known at "The Tutorial Lady" because of the how-to lessons I've been posting on my blog and website for the past 10 years... so as I learn, I like to teach.

This tutorial represents my continuing research on how self-published authors can get higher rankings and more attention on Amazon.com. Not to mention more dollars in our pockets. One thing I discovered as I started looking for Kindle marketing resources was... there aren't many good ones. The Kindle e-reader hasn't been around all that long and the marketing information seems to be all over the place.

I'm new enough at this that I'm focusing solely on Kindle and Amazon to start with. There was enough of a learning curve just figuring out how to format my tutorials for Kindle, never mind for Nook and the other e-readers out there.

Writing is an art, and for many of us, it's also a business. This is the business part. I sure hope you find some useful tips here!

Don't forget to bookmark this page. I'll be adding to it frequently. Cheers!

I wish I had read Michael Alvear's book BEFORE I published my first 3 Kindle books - Get the basics of marketing your Kindle books here... and then some... with

Here's my review of Alvear's book. This book is a good place to start your Kindle marketing journey.

Make A Killing On Kindle (Without Blogging, Facebook Or Twitter).  The Guerilla Marketer's Guide To Selling Ebooks On Amazon
Make A Killing On Kindle (Without Blogging, Facebook Or Twitter). The Guerilla Marketer's Guide To Selling Ebooks On Amazon

Michael Alvear's Kindle book "Make a Killing on Kindle" approaches e-book marketing a little differently than the other articles and books I've read and so I found myself taking lots of notes on the points I wanted to remember... and try for myself.

Unlike everyone else, Alvear does NOT tell you to make a splash on social networks to promote your first book. Instead, he focuses on 3 things: (1) Attracting loads of people to your book's page at Amazon.com, (2) Getting your visitors' attention once they've landed on your book's page at Amazon.com and (3) Converting your visitors to buyers of your e-book.

One tip I found particularly eye-opening was to "mirror the pace and tone of your book" when writing your descriptive blurb for your book's sales page. He also tells you in quite a lot of detail how to optimize your book title, description and keyword phrases for the Amazon search engines - the idea being to end up on page 1 of Amazon's search results for your keywords. Oh, yes... and you'll learn a method for ethically mentioning your books on your competitors' Amazon pages.

I have other books on my "to-read" list, but this one would have really helped me get more sales more quickly had it been published 3-4 months ago when my e-books went online. Glad I found it before I publish my next book.

 

Here's where I started instead

J. A. Konrath has lots to teach us about e-book publishing

When I Googled e-book marketing early in 2012, as my new books were just hitting the Kindle shelves, one name kept coming up over and over: Joe Konrath.

J. A. Konrath has been published via both traditional and self-published channels and he is now opting for the method that gives him more personal control over his product, his marketing... and his income. And that's self publishing.

The link above takes you to a 1000+ page Kindle book he compiled from years of blog posts. I suggest you take a look at the chapter called "E-books" and then head over to Konrath's blog where you can subscribe to all his updates. It's worth it.

Click here to visit J. A. Konrath's blog on e-book publishing. The blog doesn't include categories, so just poke around until you find what you're looking for. There will be gems on every page. For example, click here to read the post about how he made $100,000 in 3 weeks at Amazon.

Don't forget to check out Kindle Unlimited

Members of KDP Select have the option of participating in the NEW Kindle Unlimited program.

Readers pay a monthly fee; KDP Select authors receive part of the KDP Select Global Fund, rather than a royalty on a direct sale. Amazon is promoting Kindle Unlimited heavily right now, so it might make sense to give it a try.

A series of books I can honestly recommend - Good info - no hype - my kind of book

I just discovered Steve Scott's books on marketing your Kindle books and found his approach very refreshing, after all the drivel I've been reading on how to "beat the Amazon system." I've already downloaded 5 of his ebooks, but will review just one here.

Scott's book Is $.99 the New Free? The Truth About Launching and Pricing Your Kindle Books is more than worth its 99 cent price for his discussion on book pricing... and how to best use the KDP Select free promotional days.

61 Ways to Sell More Nonfiction Kindle Books
61 Ways to Sell More Nonfiction Kindle Books

I made a bunch of notes while reading this book. I like Steve Scott's approach a lot. He respects (the integrity of) the writers he's speaking to, for one thing. And he offers useful info.

One thing I didn't know before was that only 10% of a book gets included in the "Look Inside the Book" feature. So if you have short e-books like mine, you only get to see 3-4 pages. In that case, it's worth putting your "front matter" at the back of the book so your potential readers can at least see your Table of Contents.

He makes sound suggestions on how to use your Author Central page to best advantage and outlines how and why he prices his books the way he does.

I've quickly become a fan of Steve Scott's sensible advice. And his books are reasonably priced so you can check him out without a huge cash investment.

 
How I Sold 1 Million eBooks in 5 Months!
How I Sold 1 Million eBooks in 5 Months!

I wish I were a fiction writer so I could try John Locke's method. It actually sounds like fun. I like the idea of creating characters that people care about ... so much so that you can't wait to find out what happens to them - book after book after book.

A lot of writers will find the methodology - and Locke's approach to writing books - formulaic... and it is. That's his entire point. He doesn't leave any part of the sales process to chance - including the likeability of his heroes and heroines.

 

Here's my review of John Locke's "How I Sold 1 Million eBooks in 5 Months!" - Bottom line: You'll learn a lot about building customer loyalty and repeat sales

John Locke makes it very clear from the outset: he's not the best writer in the world, but he may very well be the top marketer of e-books. He has developed a marketing system which actually dictates the way he writes and the audience he seeks. And, to judge by his results... it works. He also rips shreds out of the typical book marketing methods espoused by many book marketing authors. This could save you time and money if you get nothing else out of Locke's book.

Locke is first and foremost a businessman. His "hobby" is writing novels. He tackles his hobby, however, as if it were a business enterprise. This point is hammered home over and over in this, his first how-to book about how he sells lots of books. And I should mention that you will learn a lot about marketing e-books if you pay attention to his methods.

The essential point John Locke makes is that a writer should know - and understand - his or her audience before putting the first words onto a page. This has always been true for non-fiction books, but Locke insists that, if you want to sell lots of books in your fiction genre - you must know what your audience wants... and give it to them... over and over. If you create a character that captures the hearts of your readers, you want to continue giving them what they expect and enjoy. Locke talks about depth rather than breadth of a series following. It's much easier selling to people who already like your work than to keep finding new readers for each book you write.

One thing I liked about Locke's book was his generosity in sharing his ideas. If you read his book and can translate his methods to your own circumstances, there really isn't any reason you couldn't duplicate his results. Of course, you need an engaging hero or heroine to be the linchpin around which your marketing efforts revolve. You need to take time to research the types of people who "get" what your character is all about. And you need to continue to feed them what they want... if you want them to buy every book in your series - and, according to Locke - you must write a series... and pretty doggone quickly at that.

Locke does advocate creating blogs for your books - but his approach is unlike anybody else's I've read. And he does advocate the use of Twitter to reach your audience... but again, with his own twist... and a very targeted plan.

Don't forget to set up your Amazon author page

Kindle writers need a good-looking author page

Once you have published your first book on Amazon, you'll be encouraged to set up your author page. This is more about you than about your books, so make it personal, yet professional-looking. Your books will automatically link to your page, but you can also add the RSS feeds for your blogs and include your Twitter feed as well.

You'll want to upload a decent photo of yourself (that's me staring you in the face here). Plus, there's a mini-forum where you can start a discussion about... well... anything.

Your author page links directly to your books' sales pages, so any chance you get, make sure to include your author page link in email signatures, on your websites, blogs and Squidoo lenses and even in your press releases. Just make sure your Author Central page looks good and tells your story in an engaging way.

I've seen Author Central pages of well-known writers that looked abandoned... as if the writers did not know that this resource existed. Well, it does... and now you know, too. (I didn't at first, which is why I'm mentioning it.)

Create your Amazon Author Page here: https://authorcentral.amazon.com/

Announce Your Freebies on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter

Where else do you work and play?

Make sure to announce your free downloads on all of the social networks where you have a presence.

Also, don't forget your blogs, websites and online writing platforms. People like free stuff and this is one way to let people who (kind of) know you to get a sample of your work. If they like it, they'll be more likely to actually BUY your next e-book... and the next.

Don't Miss Out on KDP's Kindle FREE Promotion Days

Your book could be promoted on thousands of websites that offer free Kindle books.

If you join Amazon's KDP Select, you have the option of offering your books free for 5 days in every 90-day period. There's a lot of work involved, but it's usually worth it. Most people see a boost in sales because your page rankings improve, depending on how many free downloads your books receive.

What's really cool is... a lot of websites (including my blog) display these Amazon search boxes, so your book could be showing up in places you don't even know about. Also, there are many sites that promote Kindle freebie days.

See below for some of the resources I use to promote my free days... and some of the opportunities I'm missing because I've got more background work to do - like get reviews for my e-books.

Make sure to plan ahead if you use these sites. They want 1-2 weeks lead time, because of the volume of books that are submitted to them. And most of the sites only showcase a handful of free books a day.

      Lots of good ideas. I have a funny experience with "my" author page. Seems there's another, established writer with the same name, and my books get referred to his page and included on it. I have no idea how to fix that, especially as Amazon has roughly zero tech support, but I think it probably is better for me if it stays as it is.

I know I can trust your judgement on those books you recommend because you were not willing to give high points for the book you felt had not been presented properly. For myself, I am very leery of any author who tries to pass off spelling an' grammatical errors as nothing more than the norm, just so's he/she can 'Get the job done an' outta' the way'. I truly appreciate your willingness to speak honestly.

      Just skimmed thru the lens to get an idea of its contents, but I have bookmarked the lens and noted a number of links which I intend to read. Thanks for the info / help and for your efforts. I have yet to create an e-book but it is another thing I am looking forward to trying. - blessed

      I wanted to thank you for visiting and blessing my lens about College Dropouts, but I ended up here where I found very useful information. I will come back - thank you!

      What a very informational and genuine lens. I have not published an e-book, but would like to in the future. The biggest thing I fear, and the territory I'm most unfamiliar with, is the realm of proper formatting. I would love to see a lens on this! Anyhow, thanks for the wonderful info. I'm pinteresting this article!

      @BrianRS: Thanks, Brian. It's a starter guide that I'll add to as I learn more about Kindle marketing.
