9 Steps to Getting Best-Seller Ranking on Kindle with your eBook! Part 2

6. Publish it.Best-seller-reduced
Once you have everything done and uploaded in it’s final form, publish it.  To publish all you do is press the “save and continue” button on the upload  page.

7. Get Reviews
It is very difficult, if not impossible, to get your ebook downloaded, let a lone make sales, without 4 & 5-star reviews. Many of the announcement sites require you to have 4-6, of them before they will announce your ebook. And Amazon will give you additional marketing support if you have 25-25 reviews. But 6 is good to get you started.

You can ask family, friends, colleagues, customers, subscribers, and/or Amazon reviewers-just not anyone with your last name as their reviews will be denied because they will be seen as biased.

Also, verified reviews, or reviews based on ebooks that have that have been purchased, carry more weight than promotional ones with Amazon. So it’s better to let your reviews purchase the ebook and then reimburse them than to give them free ones whenever possible.

8. Pick your Promotion Days

You can’t set a promotion until you book has been published which is why you must upload it and check it first. You can set the promotion dates before getting reviews, but I like to get the reviews first so I know that I’ve got my ducks in a row and I’m ready to go!

Which days you pick and how many days you choose will depend on your strategy.  If you want a more leads than sales, choose a longer promotion (4-5 days).  If you want to get to #1, and get some leads, but you want sales too pick a shorter promotion. The biggest traffic days are Sunday and Monday, so use those days to your greatest advantage depending on your strategy.

9. Announce it

A cottage industry has grown up around the Amazon promotions. There are over 75 sites that will announce your promotion for free and there are many free ones for free promotions than for Countdown ones. This is what makes it so attractive for newbies and anyone who doesn’t want to put in a lot of time and effort (Remember, this can be outsourced and the way we can do it is part of our secret to success!) But, whether you do it yourself or outsource it, it has to be done for a successful launch unless you are using powerful joint-venture partners. So get your promotion in as many announcement sites as possible.

Follow these 9 steps and you’ll be all set for your promotion!  Get ready for the ride because it’s going to be a blast!
