In today’s episode, celebrated Kindle entrepreneur Dave Chesson sits down with us to discuss the three questions he asks himself in order to pick the right keywords to improve a book’s searchability. Learn how to boost your book’s clicks on Amazon, double your sales and be shown at the top of search results with the Kindlepreneur himself or, as we like to call him, the keyword king!
Dave founded the Kindlepreneur after working with self published authors for years and realizing that their number one problem had nothing to do with writing the book, but about marketing it once it was published. Since then, his SEO tactics and marketing tips have helped hundreds of authors learn how to turn their self published books into bestsellers.
Quite simply put – Amazon Kindle SEO is the process of using keywords to have your book rank higher in Amazon search results than other books. And chances are, if you’ve put the blood, sweat and tears into writing a book…you’re going to want readers to find and buy it!
With self-publishing encompassing everything from book formatting to cover design, marketing principles and launch tactics, where does a new author start?!
Publishing your own book is much more efficient, affordable and achievable than going down the traditional publishing route, but the process doesn’t come without its own set of hurdles.
The good news is that there is a wealth of self-publishing blogs out there that are equipped with the valuable resources, tips and tricks to help first-time (or second-time, third-time, fourth-time!) authors navigate through the writing and indie publishing process. As the self-publishing field is constantly evolving, we like to revisit these blogs on a regular basis to keep ourselves up to date with what’s happening in the industry and constantly continue to learn from our knowledgeable peers.
Here are 10 of the self-publishing authorities that we follow and love, in no particular order of preference.
