12 Tips for Your Professional Amazon Author Page

.
kdp-select-controveryOnce your book goes live on Amazon you are eligible for an Amazon Author Central Account – and your very own web page on Amazon! Best of all: There is no advertising on your site, up to seven images (of you, your book(s), an “about the author” article and your book’s description. 

Use your Author Central page to provide more information for your readers: upcoming events, a complete listing of your books, more images, and videos, your book trailer and even excerpts from your blog.
.

Not only get your Amazon website a very high page rank, Author Central tools are very effective in marketing your books and promoting yourself as an author.

.
How to Set Up Your Amazon Author Central Account
Amazon explains: once published, expect to receive an email from Kindle Direct Publishing announcing the news that your book is available for purchase.  They are inviting you to create your Amazon Author Central Account.  Note your book’s ASIN enclosed in the email.  You will need this number to locate your book later and associate it with you as the author.  Follow the instructions to set up your page:

Be the “Face” of Your Book:

  1. Add a professional author photo & biography
  2. Add all your books
  3. Add videos (e.g. trailers for your books)
  4. Add up to seven additional photos, e.g. you writing your books or scenes from your book
  5. Add images or graphics from your book’s content
  6. Add a biography – make sure to update it frequently
  7. List events, such as book readings or book launches
  8. Add your Twitter address so people can see your latest Tweet and easily follow you
  9. Set up the “Search Inside/Look Inside” feature – if it is not already set up
  10. Add an RSS feed, linking to your blog – a great way to get your blog in front of new people and encourage them to follow you
  11. View and edit the list of books you have written – the Amazon system doesn’t always get it right. If you have written more than one book, it will link your titles together, and allow your readers to find all of your work.
  12. Edit your product description and “about the author” section, add any professional reviews/editorial reviews you have had.
    .

More Features
Track Your Sales – Find out where your sales are happening using the geographic location function and find out your Amazon ranking.
.
One of the biggest advantages of an Amazon Kindle published Author is your own web page, complete with a URL, on a powerful Amazon website just for you! Use these links for advertising your books or for blog articles.  If you shorten them, using bit.ly for example, you can double the number of links for your posts.

You need separate accounts, for the UK, CA and US versions of Amazon; You have to do the site for each country separately – however, it is just a matter of copy and paste.  Try to create your foreign country pages in their language.  Either via Google translation or even better, ask a native speaker of the language for which you need the short text.
Use the Amazon Central account for each country.  For example:
Amazon Author Central UK: http://authorcentral.amazon.co.uk
Amazon Author Central US: http://authorcentral.amazon.com
Amazon Author Central Canada: http://authorcentral.amazon.ca

100-plus Ways to Promote Your Book for FREE

.

Travel-Case

You might have read and saved already almost a hundred websites to announce your book for FREE from these reader communities and blogs*:

https://savvybookwriters.wordpress.com/2012/11/03/50-web-links-to-let-your-book-go-viral/
https://savvybookwriters.wordpress.com/2012/11/04/part-2-45-more-websites-to-promote-your-book/

.
However, there are even more possibilities to promote your book without incurring costs:

1. Show off your cover image
To submit a cover image of your book including a description / link – if it is an outstanding and creative book cover, show it here for free:

http://pinterest.com/111publishing/books-worth-reading/
http://bookcoversanonymous.blogspot.ca/
http://bookcoverarchive.com/
.

2. Use photo-sharing sites to show your cover image
http://Flickr.com
http://500px.com/
http://DeviantArt.com
.

3. Participate in a cover image contest
E-book Cover Design Awards by Joel Friedlander, for example this one here: http://www.thebookdesigner.com/2013/08/e-book-cover-design-awards-july-2013/
.

4. Show your book trailer everywhere
Upload your trailer not only on your website and blog, but also on Goodreads, Amazon, Google+, LinkedIn, Twitter and FB, but also on more than twenty major sharing sites, starting with YouTube and TubeMogul. Add a link to each of them on your website or wherever your book is sold.

See also an extensive list of video sharing sites for your book trailer in this guide book:
111 Tips to Create Your Book Trailer”.
.

5. Google+ and its communities
There are dozens of reader communities alone on Google+ (for example ours http://bit.ly/VmtVAS) and you can access them from your main Google+ page. On all Google+ sites, images of your book’s cover can be shown, along with lengthy descriptions – several times a day on your own time line, however, on communities better only once in a while, not to be perceived as spammer.
.

Don’t forget the Basics!
Use your free author pages, that are provided from Amazon, Goodreads, Pinterest, Google+, FB, LinkedIn, and certainly your own webpage and your blog, where you can show a variety of your book’s cover and images from the content.
Why I mention this?  Too many authors don’t take advantage of these free webpages, they get from online retailers and at their social media sites and where they can show and describe their books to lots of potential readers …

5 Tips to Improve your Amazon Author Page

.

Amazon-Kindle
.

One of the greatest benefits of selling your e-book (or paper book) through Amazon is the vast space they provide you to “advertise” your work. If you are a savvy author, take right away advantage of this marvelous opportunity of an author page and insert lots information about your writing and yourself as an author.

Look at it from the standpoint of a reader; which book would you buy: The one that shows just a boring cover, name of the author, and a very short introduction to the book – or the one which has:

  • a beautiful, appealing cover
  • an all-embracing editorial review
  • an interesting authors bio with a portrait
  • lots of customer reviews
  • a book trailer or interview video

So, what can you do to improve your appearance on Amazon and improve book sales?  A lot!
.

Create an appealing book cover
Rule # 1 for your book cover on Amazon is NEVER to use a white background! White on white is barely visible and your book will not stick out, especially when you chose to have the text in black.
Your book cover should be:

  • aesthetically appealing
  • targeted to the book’s intended audience
  • represent the book’s contents
  • use a clean, readable font
  • use bold or complementary colors
  • use light on dark for dramatic effects
  • visit a bookstore to research book cover designs
  • test the cover in thumbnail size to make sure it looks good even if it is only one inch high/wide and the title should still be readable

An appealing book cover can be done through the use of software, if you are computer-savvy and creative / artsy – if not, better hire a professional, who is experienced in designing book covers and can provide a portfolio with samples from earlier jobs.
.

Write a great editorial review
Write as much about your book as possible and use all the space you get from Amazon:

  • Editorial Review—350 characters
  • From the Author, From the Inside Flap, and From the Back Cover—8000 characters !!!
  • About the Author—2000 characters
  • See the detailed information on Amazon.
    .

Set up your Author Page
Helping customers get to know you is an effective way to introduce your books. Information you add on the “Profile” tab in Author Central appears on the Amazon.com Author Page. On the Author Page you can display:

  • books you have written
  • biography and up to 8 photos!
  • up to 8 videos!
  • a calendar of events, such as book signings
  • Latest Tweets
  • Most Recent Blog Posts

.
The Author Page is a good chance to tell readers something interesting about yourself, make sure you include any details about your (writers) background, awards, other books you have written and personal details customers might want to know. Your author photo should be a professional, high-resolution image for quality display.

At the Author Central page on Amazon you get lots of free marketing help. Click the “Profile” tab, where you will see all these sections to add – or to change the information later. It can take several days for the Author Page to appear on the Amazon, so start right now adding content to your Author Page. There are lots of features for you to choose from:

  • Your Profile and your Biography
  • Uploading Photos & Videos
  • Managing Your Blog Feeds & Your Events
  • Uploading Book Images
  • Managing Editorial Reviews
  • Customer Reviews

.
Get lots of customer reviews
From Amazon’s Tips: “Anyone registered as an Amazon.com customer is entitled to write customer reviews, including fellow authors and journalists. Reader reviews don’t carry across borders, so ask your friends to copy and paste their reviews to all of your Amazon sites (Amazon.uk.co, Amazon.ca, Amazon.fr or Amazon.de for example). Make it easy for them and provide all the direct links to your sites.
Customer reviews are in order from newest to oldest with the exception of “Spotlight Reviews” that are based on how well the review was written and how helpful it was deemed by our customers.”
(Hint: ask your friends to click on “helpful” at the best reviews of your book).
.

Create a Book Trailer & Videos:
You can share your book trailer, video interviews, book signing videos or the new Google Search Story trailers with readers. Your video should focus on specific features of your book or your experience as an author. Hire a professional video maker to create your book promotion trailer and upload the video to YouTube and other video sites. To get an overview of the video production process and lots of tips and links for free images, free music and web sites where to upload and how to market your video, read: 111 Tips to Create Your Book Trailer.

Submit your video or book trailer to your own website, your blog or blogs of your friends, show it often on your Google+, Twitter, or your Goodreads site. Ask all your friends to spread the word and to re-tweet your video link or submit it to their Goodreads friends.
.

You might ask why I write here only about Amazon’s author page: Barnes & Noble and Kobo don’t offer author pages! You can click on the authors name, but that brings you only to another sales page, where only the book appears – among a dozen or more books from other authors …

Amazon has more cool features to help an author get found. Use every bit of support you can get from Amazon, join the Kindle Forum to ask questions, get help and support from other authors and on blogs, and your book will be a success!

Why Authors Need Lots of Marketing Skills

.

.

Social Media floods the market with content producers, e.g. writers. If you want to make it as a writer, you will have to separate yourself from the crowd so your work can be found and appreciated. Here are some tips for your writing success:
.

# 1  is to know the industry
Even after they get a book deal, many authors are surprised to find the majority of the marketing depends on them. Get to know the publishing industry and what kind of writing sells and what can be marketed.  It will save yourself a lot of time and effort in the long run. Keep up with what’s hot by reading Writer’s Market, Goodreads or Script. Knowing the publishing field also means knowing what rights you have as an author.
.

Make friends with Google+, Pinterest, Twitter and network
As a good writer, you already have the ability to write concise, interesting, and funny prose. It should be a breeze for you to build a following of people that includes literary agents and book editors that could assist you in getting the word out about your work, or even offer you a deal eventually. Don’t use this as a chance to hit them over the head with your book, yet demonstrate what a good writer you are and they will want to read it on their own. Content Marketing!
.

Get to know the E-publishing route
For an unknown author, it might be the best way to get your work in front of people.  E-publishing is one way to get your material into a professional, digital format that can be downloaded. Learn how to converse your book – or hire an e-book formatting company to prepare your work for listing on the Kindle, iPad, Sony Reader etc. – but only after it is carefully edited!
.

Create your own website & blog
It shows far more professionalism if you have your blog on your own website, or get a self-hostedWordPress.org page.  Consider making chapters of your writing available for free on your site, and don’t sell ads, it just looks plain cheap.  Learn how to operate a digital store.  Paypal is the industry standard for accepting payments, including the major credit cards. And to protect your customers, learn how to use save webpages and procedures (https).
.

Maximize your web traffic and sell online
Maximize your visibility on search engines by using clear and accurate keywords in your site title, description, and body. To move up to the top of the search list, you need to have lots of links from other web sites to your page; submit your web pages to various sites that deal with your topic and encourage them to link their readers to you in return of the favor. Tips how to get more inbound-links.
.

Create a media kit 
Microsoft Publisher is all you need to make a professional press kit to send out to newspaper- and magazine editors, radio and TV journalists, or agents. Include in your materials the market research you have done to show how many readers could profit from your new book, and include the best bits of material from your work.
.

Create a book trailer*
Rent or buy an inexpensive camcorder or just use your laptop webcam. Shoot an introductory video of yourself for your site and your latest book project, or upload a highlight reel to YouTube of key points in your work. Keep it simple.  Read even more how to create a book trailer in my e-book:
111 Tips to Create Your Book Trailer, featuring valuable tips and links to video tutorials, free music downloads and free images, as well as tips how to market your book video.  Available at Amazon:  http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008Y15YYO
.

Brand yourself as a writer.
Establishing yourself and your writing as a brand involves knowing what your core strength is. Create your “Elevator Pitch”  to convince readers why they should get your book.  Be available for: an interview for a blog or a neighborhood weekly, a “local authors” day at a small bookstore, or even speaking engagements across the country.  It may not be easy first, as being upbeat and on your game at all times requires work. Traditional media outlets like radio and TV are turning more and more towards the new wave of internet writers and bloggers.
.

With the tools described here, and using social media, your book marketing doesn’t require any financial investment.  Depending on your level of involvement, it may demand  quite a bit of time commitment, at least in the beginning.  However, as more you use these marketing tools, as faster you can handle them and as more visitors and buyers you will get.

Autumn Leaves by Barbara Winkes

.

What to do when ones whole life turns upside down?
.

Autumn Leaves by Barbara Winkes

Autumn Leaves by Barbara Winkes

Rebecca Lowman, married for 16 years, is the mother of two girls, 8 and 14. She is content with her life in the small fictional town of Autumn Leaves.

Callie Bryan who inherited the house across the street from the Lowman family is a single lesbian, a writer who has her own reasons to seek out the peaceful country life: to finish her latest project and to escape a relationship that had turned abusive.

The close friendship that she and Rebecca form becomes continuously complicated when attraction comes into play. Rebecca is bewildered and scared by her feelings, questioning her faith and her life so far.

Callie has sworn to stay away from relationships that could hurt her, but she’s too much in love to care. Before they can come to terms with the changes, the secret comes out, not all of their friends reacting kindly.
.

The falling leaves and changing colors signify a gentle but irreversible change. As friendship turns into attraction, denial into awareness, both women deal with a growing pressure from their environment.

Will Your Book Stand Out Against Millions of Others?

.

Next year an estimated ten to fifteen million books will be published. How will you make your book standing out among them? Plus, authors are more and more under pressure from their publishers to promote their own books. 

The good news: Help is on the way – and it doesn’t even cost you anything, other than your time. Nowadays authors have more opportunities to promote their book’s sales than ever before. Social media and the Internet allow authors to communicate directly with their audience.

.
5 Tips for Non-Fiction Authors to Sell More Books:
.

Start Planning Publicity for Your Book Nine Months in Advance
Just like preparing for a child, the birth of a book needs preparation time. Some authors tend not to think about marketing their book until it’s on Amazon already or in store shelves, which is way too late. Speak about your book, build awareness and excitement; start blogging about it or mention it in your newsletters.

Smart writers are sharing sample content months in advance, collecting testimonials and getting blurbs from other writers and authorities in your field. Don’t assume any publisher will come up with a great marketing strategy. If you are not self-publishing your book, approach your publisher’s marketing team with lots of your own marketing ideas. Think and plan what you can bring to your publishers’ table.

.
Never tell someone what your book is about
Rather tell your potential readers what’s in it for them and how it will help them to resolve problems and also overcome obstacles. Non-fiction book authors often get caught up in their idea, but customers only care about the results the book will produce for them. When talking about your book, tell them what is in it for them, share some tid bits from the book and explain: “if you are interested in the rest of this and in other stories, just read my new book.”

.
Create a Book Trailer
Any smartphone these days has a built-in high definition video camera, so you don’t have to hire a professional company. You can bring in extra lights, put your smartphone on a tripod, and you can have a video running on YouTube, TubeMogul and other video sharing sites the same day. Create a powerful marketing tool on a budget with a good quality book trailer, and it can go viral really fast. Engage viewers by explaining the reason why the book is an important help for them, explain why they should trust your expertise and which results your book can create for your readers. Video content in web pages or in emails increases click-through rates by NINETY-SIX (96) percent! Find links to tutorials and listings of video sharing sites.

.
Don’t Over-Estimate Social Media
Finally, resist the urge to go crazy with social media. Though it provides a good opportunity to reach readers, balance social media with public speaking e.g. at writers conferences, publishing lots of articles or being quoted in the media, or sending out regular newsletters. Sure, to get 5,000 followers or 25,000 email addresses, social media is invaluable. However, when you’re searching for a core group of committed partners for your book launch, a co-author for your next project, or in-depth feedback on your manuscript, your online followers are not your only best bet. Even “shy” or “introverted” authors are often naturals at networking, when placed in the right environment, such as writers conferences.

.
Leverage the Power of Free
Giving resources away allows skeptical readers to get enough content to talk about your book – and to make it easy for them to share content with their friends. Sample chapters, quizzes, special reports, and how-to articles are all good giveaway possibilities. If you haven’t yet landed on the radar of most people, you need an entirely different strategy. If this is your first work, give away as many books as you can – but let your readers “pay-with-a-tweet”. Ask your publisher for a lower price on promotional copies and get your words out there.

.
As an author of hopefully soon, several books, you are a brand. Start thinking and acting like one, and create a serious marketing strategy.
