Amazon Bestselling Author!
Have you thought about this very statement? I know I have…I bet you have too. It’s a dream, and one we should all be reaching for. We can all become a bestselling author, it’s not impossible.
What it is though, is hard work. You must be consistent. You must be persistent. You must NOT spam, and you MUST engage.
Everything I do, I do with you all in mind. There is room for all of us to become bestselling authors! YES!
The world is a BIG place, and we really need to figure out that if that’s what we want, then that’s what we shall get! I know you’re thinking I’m crazy right now, and that’s okay. My kids tell me that all the time, I’m used to it, LOL. I want you to know, right here and now, I would never steer you wrong, at least not on purpose, *grins*.
So how DO we become a bestseller?
When I released Be Brilliant, Be Bold, Be Beautiful YOU!, I didn’t think it was ever going to work. I tested my strategies though, and guess what? That book is now a Bestselling book on Amazon in Creative Writing! It held the #68 & #69 position for over a week. At one point it hit #36.
I just released Rock The Holidays (The Ultimate Holiday Book Sale Booster Guide) and it’s not even been on the shelf for 1 week and it’s already ranking at #8. See for yourself…
1. The first thing you need to understand is that you are not a bestselling author just because your book ranked. If that were the case, this would not be a goal at all. Everyone would be a bestselling author.
You ARE a bestselling author once your book holds a position in the Top 100 Amazon Bestselling Books for 1 Full Week or more.
You may not be a #1 Bestselling Author, but you can say that you are a bestselling author in the category it’s ranking in. Be Brilliant, Be Bold, Be Beautiful You! is a bestseller in Creative Writing. I can now say that because of it holding in the Top 100 for 1 week +.
2. Next, get to know your book and put it in the correct categories. You get 2 categories and 7 keywords that you need to utilize correctly. The better you know your book, the better your rankings will be.
3. Last, get some sales. Utilize your mailing list, run a few ads, engage your audience & seek some reviews.
It’s not neuroscience, but it is definitely hard work that requires consistency and persistency. Don’t get discouraged and keep on truckin’!
Is becoming a Bestselling Author a goal for 2014?
