I have Written a Book now whatI've written a book now.
I' ve just released my book. And now what?
You are now a public writer - and don't let anyone else tell you otherwise. I have serious doubt that with about 3,000 new titles released every single working days, you can just lean back and await your reader's stumbling across your work, or that your words of advice will unfold their wit. So what are the next moves after release?
But before I can give an honest response, I have to ask myself one question: Is this your first work? As you can see, until you have at least three ledgers, the easy response is: "Start the next one. "Once you have a minimal of three copies, advertising them becomes so much simpler.
Meanwhile, you should do what you've hopefully done since the date you chose to become an author: broaden your platforms. Don't make the error of twittering about your work. Instead, be yourself, be supportive, polite and have a good time. Find new boyfriends, share your thoughts and see it as an experiment that would have killed writers a decade ago.
You can be sure that you are taking full benefit by giving your customers what they need. What time are articles about your book interesting for readers/followers? E.g., if the poles are about them, not about you, like when you run a discount/free days and they want the best possible deal; If you want to divide something really wonderfully and you are really thrilled; If you ask for their help/opinion on something; If they are useful to your audiences.
So the test is here, would you like to see the review you just wrote if it had just gotten into your time line? So what can you do to extend your plattform? Maybe your novel will be just as interesting. Utilize the strength of our selected job to help others. If you are publishing a textbook, you will be asked to classify it into two different groups and enter up to seven key words.
A lot of folks make the error of selecting a wide range - e.g. "fiction - romance". "Even if they sold a thousand books, their books will still not be among the first hundred in their group. Instead, what you should do is to select a preferably specified subset.
Because if you are listet under a sub-category, you will also be listet under the master catagory. For example, the Romantic Movies section has 193,606 titles. Yet Fiction-Romance > Historical Romance has only 24,447 titles. Romanticism > Historical > Antiquity has only 440 volumes.
Select with care and never let your textbook have the 100 best paying textbooks in its class. In order to help you, I include an MS Excel table with all Amazon product categories/subcategories sorted by competitiveness: top ranking is the most easy to crack. If you have already used up your catagories in the above example, enter "Ancient" and "Historical Romanticism" as key words - the effect is the same.
Note: The table contains many headings that are not available on the KDP page. To enter your work in one of these catagories, simply select a catagory as "Other", then please ask KDP to enter your work in the catagory of your choice. Updated: As my boyfriend and co-author Dylan Hearn points out, you don't think that the topics you have selected once are final.
From time to time, you may modify them to make your eBook available to new users. Simply make sure that your eBook fits the categories you choose. There is nothing more terrible than to face the anger of a romanticist, whom you have placed in your own class by a little grasp.
It also says that some catagories may be available in one Amazonia store - e.g. amazon.com - and not in another (e.g. amazon.co.uk). This I could not check because the classes are BISAC but there is something to consider. I am conscious of the dispute over free time, and here is my opinion:
The way free time works is different if you have a few ledgers, and if you only have one. The first is to give a gift of a textbook (usually the first in a series) so that everyone can get to know your work. There is a good possibility that if they like what they are reading, they will come back.
However, if you have just released your very first volume, free time is useful to put you on the card. If even your mom would be under heavy pressure to match your textbook, there is a good chance that no one will find you alone. So why not give your platformfriends a gift of your books for a few extra working hours - and let them know in time?
It will help you place your work in the top 100 as long as you have selected your category well. Even more important, however, is that your friend likes it and inspires enthusiasm for your work. My experiences with free time can be found in my corresponding article, A-Z Guide:
Like my two ledgers made it to Amazon's number one. The countdown offers are Amazon's response to the declining earnings of the free day - a Amazon issue, as they have lessened the effect of free down-loads on the rankings of a work. âThis seems to be part of a deliberate endeavor to enhance value of accounts, for example by offers only a 70% cut for accounts that sell for over $2. 99 (just a year, that was $1.99).
Quotes from countdowns are a fun term for selling, although Amazon has added some cute little extra features. Like, the first three of my apocalyptic fantasies are selling for $3.49. For $0.99 on the first date, a three-day count down sale can be made. My experiences with count down transactions can be found in my corresponding mail, A-Z Guide:
That is especially the case for full fledged titles when you have to contend with billions of other advertisements. The only way I could pay my costs was to use a banner to promote a promotional campaign (not for a day off, of course). Odds that your free time will be revealed to the public without you having to spend to tell them are about as high as the prize of a second raffle lot after only verbal propaganda has made your bestseller.
In any case, as I have already said, advertisements have their benefits. I started a roller advertising campagne in October to advertise my Christmas climaxing book. I' ll provide one of them with a monthly rebate and place an ad on another media every five day or so to reach different people.
However, apart from this particular use, I have not seen any particular benefits from the placement of advertisements and a banner. I' ve even tried Google advertisements. But when I did maths, I paid folks to study my work. My first two Pearseus albums were released on October 17, 2013.
While I didn't know what to look forward to, the abilities I had acquired in my twenty years of online advertising were not on my itinerary. And the good thing is that Amazon is doing everything in its power to help you by being willing to promote your book as long as it pays the top 100 in each sub-category.
That' great news: you're not alone, you have the best and largest seller in the whole wide globe behind you. If you do, they' ll know as soon as you can afford to pay your wager (what are you still doing here, Gladstone? Go and bother Donald).
Oral propaganda as it *should* work! The magazine is intended for both Indians and authors who are interested in traditional publishing. Have a look at my award-winning children's novel, Runaway Schmile, for free on my blogs!
