How to Sell Books by the Truckload on Amazon

Saturday, August 5, 2017
8:00 am - 9:30 am
Cascade B

Amazon is a great place to sell books, but most authors don’t realize that Amazon has an internal sales machine that will actually help you market your book, for free, if you trigger it? It’s called their internal algorithm and, not that dissimilar from ranking on Google, once Amazon’s algorithm kicks in, you could see a boatload of free promotion come your way from Amazon. Here’s what the session will cover:

• Optimize your Amazon page: what you must do to start showing up in more searches

• Understanding categories/themes and how to rank consistently #1 in your category.

• Kindle Unlimited: How some authors are making a fortune here and how you can, too

• How to quadruple the reviews you get on Amazon.

• Why having a free book will help you sell more
