Vincent Zandri went from 30 eBooks a month to 80k in one month. Aaron Patterson sells around $15-20k a month with four titles. J.A. Konrath, CJ Lyons, Joshua Graham and many others. What do all these authors have in common? They all understand how to use Amazon and how to be “Seen.” It is all about exposure. One thing amazon proves is that if you are in front of people you will sell and anyone can learn how to do this.
The next class is all about how to Work the systems that run Amazon. Most if not all bestselling indie authors know how to tag and what all the rankings mean. I will show you how to do it, how to get noticed on amazon. This is key in selling well on Amazon.
If you follow J.A. Konrath he is very open about this. Go HERE to read about what he has to say about Amazon.
“Writers aren’t buying my fiction. They aren’t buying my non-fiction either–I have an eBook called “A Newbie’s Guide to Publishing” and it is among my lowest-selling titles.
The people who buy me are readers, and the vast majority have never heard of me. Readers find me on Amazon, because Amazon has made it easy for my books to be discovered.”
You can do a million things but it is all about being SEEN. and Amazon is the big monkey.
“The majority of my sales come from Amazon and my ability to use the tools they provide. So far I’ve played my cards right. I write fun books with good covers and sell them cheap, I have a lot of virtual shelf space, and readers like my writing.”
“5. Study Amazon and how it sells eBooks. Experiment. Take chances. If one of Amazon’s imprints offers to publish you, accept. Right now they are the only publisher who can increase your sales.”
Convinced yet? Amazon is where it is at, one day that may not be the case but right now it is…so, on Feb. 8th I will drop it all, show you the truth and not hold back on how to game the game. It is one big game people, and if you know how to play you WILL win.
