February meeting: Heat up your Amazon sales


Tweak An Amazon Listing for Optimal Visibility (and Irresistibility!)

Amazon wants us to sell more books – it benefits both us and them!

So, they’ve given us several tools that we should be taking advantage of in order to tweak our book listings and maximize sales. Unfortunately very few authors and publishers know about or are utilizing them properly. At our February meeting,  Laura Pepper Wu will walk us through a handful of ways in which we can optimize our listings to become a) more visible on Amazon, and b) more irresistible to potential readers.

Laura Pepper Wu is a writer of non-fiction wedding guides and fiction too. She “fell” into book marketing in early 2010 after successfully promoting her husband’s GMAT preparation guide to an Amazon #1 bestseller. Her own books have all been Amazon bestsellers too. She has since worked with dozens of authors and small press to help nail their author brands, improve their online presence, and increase their PR and outreach efforts. Laura is also the creator of the site Ladies Who Critique.com which connects over 1200 male and female writers to find critique partners. Originally from the UK, she lived in Asia for much of her twenties, and now resides in Seattle where she enjoys lots of yoga and lots of coffee. Find out more at 30DayBooks.com.

This session starts at 4 pm on Feb. 21 in Room 223, Good Shepherd Center, 4649 Sunnyside Avenue North, Seattle, WA. There’s usually plenty of free parking in the Good Shepherd lot. Our meetings are open to all interested in the business of book publishing.
