Terrific book on marketing eBooks,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: How I Sold 1 Million eBooks in 5 Months! (Kindle Edition)
I just downloaded this terrific eBook and read it in a couple of hours. It's a quick read and I appreciate that; my time is valuable and I love an author who can cut to the chase! John Locke has delivered a very thorough yet succinct account of how he drove up sales of his 99¢ eBooks to become one of today's bestselling authors on amazon.com.
This is not a book on how to write a bestseller. This is a book directed at authors who have already done their due diligence, carefully crafting the best book they can before bringing it to market. He urges his readers to--first and foremost--write a great book. Might seem like obvious advice, but it's critically important for all of us to put our best foot forward! Once we've written our books and self-edited them to the best of our ability, it's a good idea to have them edited and proofread by professionals, and to pay for an outstanding cover design.
Marketing comes only after we have a polished product to sell, and here is where you will find some great advice. I love the fact that the author shares his early mistakes in marketing his eBooks, telling us not only what didn't work, but why it didn't. That advice alone is going to save me thousands! Next, he details his strategy for e-marketing success, including how to make the best use of your twitter account and blogs, web sites, emailing supportive readers, etc. I'm already doing all of that, but after reading this book I can see some areas where I need to make a few adjustments.
Thank you, John! A great book; I hope you sell 700,000 copies!
