One of the exhibitors at the Creative Industry Expo, Bethany Kelly, contacted the Guild with information about a workshop she will hold Saturday, April 22nd, in Sorrento Valley.
In her business, she works closely with authors, supporting them through their publishing journey, getting their book projects finished, and creating beautiful, high-quality books that they are proud of.
One of the things she does with every author is to help them get themselves and their book positioned on Amazon so that they can sell more books. Amazon sells 25% of all printed book sales. And when it comes to E-books, that figure is even higher at 75%.
Amazon’s entire focus is to sell products. They have a powerful built-in marketing machine that can push products (like your book) in front of Amazon customers who are interested in those products (or books). As a self-published author, wouldn’t it be great to tap into Amazon’s marketing machine and get Amazon to take on some of the work of selling your book? Imagine how many more books you could sell if Amazon chose your book to showcase to customers who are searching for a book on your topic. Using the knowledge Bethany has gained from years in this industry, all of this is possible. There are techniques that she has used to enable several of her authors to not only become a #1 Amazon bestseller, but more importantly, to remain ranked in the top 100 in their category over months or even years, and sell books every day!
Bethany is holding her first workshop on this topic in which she will teach you everything she has learned about how to do this. Normally this information is only available to the clients who sign up to work with her as their publishing partner, but in this workshop, you will get access to all she knows on this topic.
This three-hour workshop will be held on Saturday, April 22nd, in Sorrento Valley. She has only 20 seats in the room, and she expects to sell out, so get your ticket while you can!
If you are an author with a book on Amazon who wants more sales, this is the workshop you don’t want to miss.
This is the first time Bethany is doing this workshop live. She expects that to do it again live and then switch to an online format. If you can’t make this event, but you are interested, email her and she will put you on the notification list for future in-person or online workshops.
