Featured Quotes

“Put your request for review at the back of the book. That translates into more people as they finish the book you getting reviews. Then, as you are further cultivating the relationship in the list that you have created, you can then ask them specifically if there’s a book that you really want to get more reviews out, ask them, simply ask. Say, “Hey listen, I’m looking to get more reviews for my book on Amazon so people like you, just like you, can benefit from the content that I’ve created here,” all in the name of getting that recognition that you know you deserve. Don’t fall into the trap and the systems that are in play that you can’t get reviews. I’m telling you, build a system so that in the end you’re able to get a regular stream of reviews coming in for you.”
