The bible to mastering keywords to sell more books … thank you! @selfpubwithdale, author of Amazon Keywords for Books: How to Use Keywords for Better Discovery on Amazon #bookreview #howtoebook
When I was Reading Dale’s book, instead of my voice in my head, his voice was there, encouraging me that I could master keywords and giving me layman’s terms I could understand and conquer this journey I’ve been frustrated with for years.
In the first twenty pages, I learned an amazing technique that really changed my books keywords and increased the sales on books I hadn’t gotten touched in a couple of months without any other marketing to them.
I truly know this book is so needed in this day and age when meta data will rule the next bestseller. Dale has made it understandable and given me a winning solution to reaching my target market and selling books

Daily, I get questions from published authors: Is it worth it … to put in the time and energy to mount a bestseller campaign on Amazon?
If you are a bestseller snob, you will say no, arguing only the “real” lists count: the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, etc. Being the contrarian that I can be,
I’m going to say it is worth it.
I’m talking Amazon … the gorilla that sells most of the books. I’m not talking the “one hour” slot. How about claiming 24 hours for several days? In multiple categories? And how about starting the buzz and building momentum for your title?
It takes work. It’s not something that you should be thinking: … ummm, today is Friday—I’m going to do a bestseller campaign next week. That’s a huge nope—and a recipe for failure.

Who is your target audience? What is a reader profile?
These are two questions that continue to baffle many authors, not only new authors starting out in this business but even established authors with several books out. I get it, with all the marketing information out there these terms get thrown around a lot. So first let’s break it down.

But as some countries make the long journey out of lockdown, over in the Alliance of Independent Authors, we thought we would look to the future and how we can make positive changes.
