You are if you’re an author on Amazon without an Author page!
If you are an author selling books or eBooks on Amazon, you’re missing out on prime real estate if you don’t have an Amazon Author page. If you don’t have an author page, people will be directed to a list of your books, which is good. If you have an Author page, however, people are directed to a page that can be a powerful marketing tool for any Amazon author.
A well thought out Amazon Author Page has many benefits, and it’s free. Rather than limiting your exposure to the generic listing your book provides, an author page allows you to provide up-to-date information about yourself; including your bio and photo, up to 8 videos, book cover photos (up to 8 photos total), editorial reviews, customer reviews, book trailers or interview videos, and so much more. You can even add your blog and Twitter feeds to increase exposure, as well as a calendar of events to promote book signings and other important “author sightings” or events. You have complete control over what is included (or not included) on your author page. Your author page will help you reach more readers, will improve your Amazon search results through keywords, AND you’ll be able to track your sales. Even if you have only one book on Amazon, as you gain more exposure through your author page and write more books, you can easily add them to your page.Add your blog and Twitter feeds to your Amazon Author Page to increase exposure.Click To Tweet
In addition to hosting your author page, Amazon Central has many other benefits too in the way of assistance and author help. They have an author-trained staff available to answer questions and assist via email or daytime phone support.
With such a valuable resource available to Amazon authors, if you DON’T have your own Amazon Author Page, you are missing out on some great marketing opportunities … FREE marketing opportunities!
