5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best 99 cents an ebook author can spend March 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't know the author of this book and I had never heard of him until I downloaded this book, so if my comments sound like they're coming from a "sock puppet" (i.e, phony) reviewer, I can assure you they're not.

This book bundles lists of all the popular book promotion sites and resources into one place, complete with links. You could probably come up with your own list that includes many - maybe even most - of these resources, but doing so would take many, MANY hours. Here, the work has been done for you, all for the princely sum of 99 cents.

If you place any kind of value on your time (and you SHOULD), you know that that's a steal. Additionally, the author promises to periodically update the book for free... all of which makes buying this little book a no-brainer.

3.0 out of 5 stars free book automatically = appreciative review? June 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Made me smile when I read:

"You can ask your reader who is getting a free book to consider leaving a positive review, or no review at all if they don't like it, which I think is fair. I mean, you gave them a free copy. If you can't say anything nice... don't say anything at all, right?"

I am still on the fence on this issue of "free book = appreciative review" or "friendship=happy review". After all, the free book was given in hopes that I would review it on Amazon. If only positive reviews are included, then the whole Amazon review system is of little value to someone in the decision of spending their hard-earned money. (I know gaming happens but it isn't that hard to spot fake positive reviews for the most part). At the same time, authors are real people with real feelings and everyone deserves to be treated respectfully.

I appreciated the comment about proofreading and also not spamming the link to one's book everywhere. It did bother me that the book isn't really what will be updated, it seems it is the website that will be updated. In the age of monetized clicks, that brought out my inner cynic.

While this little e-book wasn't really a lot of help for me, I agreed with the author that for the technology-challenged, having a vetted list is much better than the mess that can result from a poor Google search. If you fall in that category, at 99 cents or 1.01, it is probably worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good overall resource for ebook marketing November 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
(After reading Make A Killing On Kindle (Without Blogging, Facebook Or Twitter). The Guerilla Marketer's Guide To Selling Ebooks On Amazon I have completely changed my marketing strategy and I highly recommend reading that book) About this book, it is still one of the many books geared towards using blogs, Facebook, Twitter, and the infamous Author Platform. I did gain some helpful information about the self-publishing process in general and unique methods of marketing that I would like to try. Overall a good read at a low price (99 cents). Again the only drawback is the continued reliance on author platforms and social media, even though all the research shows that it's not the correct way to market because too much work for not enough payoff.

short and to the point is my idea of a how-to book. It's loaded with ideas, bloggers/reviewers and websites that can help any self-published author navigate their way through the maze of information. I look forward to learning more through the author's marketing group.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best investment in a long time... August 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book description covers what this is, the other reviews give you even more info on what this is so there's no risk.
The simple fact here is that all the hard work of finding sites and links has been done for you, you'd be nuts not to spend a lousy 99c to get this. You spend more on a coffee and don't even blink at making that decision so save several (at least) hours of your life, get something that DOES help you promote your work and get out there and do it.

4.0 out of 5 stars It wasn't 99 cents. September 18, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It wasn't 99 cents. It cost me $2.99, which I actually don't begrudge too much. The information is solid and worth even $2.99, or maybe a lot more depending on the reader's follow-up. It was a little irritating to be constantly reminded that I was getting all this good info for only 99 cents when I paid about 3 times that.

As you can see, my annoyance was worth only one star, since I gave four stars for an easy to use guide, that promises frequent updates. How about updating those 99 cent remarks?

I had already ferreted out many of the sources mentioned and I totally agree with the author. It is very time consuming. The book is worth the three bucks to save all that drudgery.
