In the last part of the series on Writing Kindle eBooks, we discussed uploading and publishing your eBook (Writing Kindle Ebooks Part 7).
Now that it’s uploaded and ready for buyers, you may think your job is done. However, if you really want to enjoy a nice profit when you write Kindle books, you can’t forget about Kindle eBook promotion. While promoting your book will take some work, failing to promote it will mean all your work has been in vain. To help you start promoting your Kindle book, here are some helpful tips for Kindle eBook promotion.
Tip #1 – Start by Telling Family, Friends and Other Acquaintances
Simply telling family friends and other acquaintances about your new eBook is one of the best and easiest tips for Kindle eBook promotion. Tell people you know where they can go to get their copy of your new book. If they enjoy it, ask them to leave a review on Amazon, which will help promote the book further. Word of mouth advertising is still very powerful, so don’t be afraid to use it.
Tip #2 – Make Use of Your Website
Your website is another great tool for promoting your eBook. Include a page on your site with information on your new Kindle book. If your site includes a blog, use your blog to promote that book. If you don’t have a website, set one up and begin using it to promote your book.
Tip #3 – Use Your Amazon Author Page
Once you’re done writing Kindle eBooks and you publish that book on Amazon, you’ll be given an Amazon author page. Make the most of that page. This page allows you to promote yourself as an author. Use it to really sell yourself, your expertise and your books. Include a good picture of yourself on the page and be sure to add in website or blog information. The author page offers the only way to steer your readers to your own website from Amazon, so use it.
Tip #4 – Create a Fan Page on Facebook
Another tip for Kindle eBook promotion is to create a fan page/business page on Facebook. You can easily set up a fan page for your book or one for you as an author. Use that page to interact with readers and keep promotional information going to attract more people to your eBook.
Tip #5 – Tap Into Other Forms of Social Media Marketing
Other forms of social media marketing offer you great ways to market and promote your eBook as well. Consider using Google+ to set up your Google authorship page. Start tweeting about your book on Twitter. Get the word out on Stumble Upon. Create some promotional videos on YouTube.
Other Promotion Ideas
Of course, there are many other promotional ideas you can use for Kindle eBook promotion as well. You can write a press release to announce the release of your new book on Amazon.
Get involved in online discussions related to your book’s topic and promote your book as a good informational tool. You may even want to use book-listing sites that allow you to promote your eBook with an author bio and other information.
Don’t be afraid to spend some time promoting that eBook once you’re done writing it. The time you spend promoting and marketing the book will pay off.
After your first book starts selling well, you may even want to consider hiring Kindle book ghostwriters to get started on another great eBook.
