Making or Breaking Ranks
Posted by April W Gardner on November 9, 2011
That’s the special part.
The odd part is that it’s already #35 in the category Inspirational Historical Fiction. How many copies had to sell to get that number? Well, I bought a copy. LOL. Besides that, I have no idea.
What does that tell us about ranking? It tells us that labeling can make or break a Best Seller status.
Yesterday, within a few minutes of stumbling across my book on Amazon (it wasn’t due to release for another 3 weeks), I had Author Central on the phone. Three minutes later, they were well on their way to setting up the labels according to my specifications, which were exactly how they listed for Wounded Spirits. I simply said, “Please copy the labels from my first book.”
Today, the adjustment was complete and appeared on Warring Spirits’ main page as this:
Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #335,840 in Books (See Top 100 in Books)
A small press book available for purchase 24 hours and already a Best Seller? Who would have thought, right? Actually, there are many authors on the John 3:16 Marketing Network who probably aren’t very surprised. These are the excellent marketing techniques we discuss and practice every day on the John 3:16 MN.
