Indie Rambles #14 – How to be Visible on Amazon

In his second free video (Your First 10 K Readers Series), Nick Stephenson talks about:

“- how to find your audience in amongst the gazillion other books out there
– how to get readers to come to you… “

I highly recommend the video. Here are some of my “take-aways.”

5 Key points:

  1. Amazon is not a bookstore. It is a search engine. It’s all about changing your mindset about how to sell books.
  2. Amazon is the second largest search engine in the world
  3. the process of selling books is like the process of getting a high ranking for your website on Google. It’s all about SEO (i.e., Search Engine Optimization)
  4. choosing powerful keywords is how you bring your readers to you (this is where I learned about Kindle Spy which I wrote about the other day- see post)
  5. Romance is the biggest genre on Kindle
