How To Get Good Reviews on Amazon is a simple, no-nonsense guide that teaches exactly what it says it does. Written by an experienced Amazon reviewer, this book is grounded in both psychological science and thousands of hours of conversation with some of Amazon's top reviewers. It takes you behind the scenes into the reviewing subculture that’s grown up on Amazon’s website, and gives you a deep, insider's knowledge of how the top reviewers think and operate. It not only walks you through exactly what to say and do: it takes you inside the reviewers’ heads so you can see for yourself why this is the approach that works.

Lessons include:

• A simple, four-part formula for writing emails that get your work reviewed.
• Three things never to say to reviewers!
• How to pick reviewers who are more likely to give you a good review.
• How to reduce the chance that a reviewer you contact will give your work a bad review.
• How people get caught out when receiving reviews from friends and family.

This book is not just about how to get good reviews: it’s also about how to avoid the bad ones. It will teach you which parts of the “Amazon Jungle” are virtual minefields, and how to avoid some of the costly mistakes that have rendered many sellers “persona non grata” among the entire reviewing community.

How to Get Good Reviews on Amazon teaches an honest, straightforward approach that works. It works because it’s not based on tricks or gimmicks but on a real understanding of how Amazon reviewers operate: most of all what they expect from authors and other sellers.

If you want to know how to talk to Amazon reviewers in a way that will lead them to respect you as a professional and see you as the kind of seller they actually want to help, this is the book for you!

This is a helpful guide and told me things I didn't know which is always useful. I had not appreciated how amazon reviews work and how seriously reviewers take them. Worth reading for that nugget alone!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sound advice from an experienced reviewer 13 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Theo Rogers writes clearly, and with authority and insight obviously gained from a wealth of 'insider experience'.

This book (thankfully) contains no frills; it simply offers a practical guided tour of the Amazon reviewers' world; both in terms of mindset and expectations.

Beyond the (hopefully obvious) suggestions of approaching a reviewer politely, respectfully and honestly, Theo also offers specific advice on how to deal with less-than-stellar reviews. In addition, he includes plenty of guidance on the reviewers' ranking system, and the effect of the voting buttons, which had a far greater impact than I had realised.

I now have some good-quality resources to hand should I decide to approach an Amazon reviewer.

My rating: a very solid 4 stars.

I was given a free ecopy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good advice for authors 4 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a simple but thorough guide to help authors who are seeking reviews for their books. It explains why Amazon reviewers invest time in writing reviews and how an author should approach them to request a review. It also warns about common mistakes authors make and how to avoid them. There is a whole culture and community to Amazon reviewing that I was only partially aware of. Theo Rogers explains its intricacies and I have a much better understanding of it after reading the book.

He writes in a straightforward, easy to read style and the book is concise and to the point. The time I spent reading the book was definitely time well spent. I would recommend it to authors who wish to use Amazon book reviews to promote their books in an effective and ethical way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smart Advice for Indie Authors. 24 Oct 2013
By NyiNya
Format:Kindle Edition
One of the delights of buying a book on Amazon is you get to see the reviews and figure out if there's something between the covers for you. Amazon has changed a lot of buying habits and today most of us would never buy a book without checking what other readers have to say about it. So if you're a new writer (and with self-publishing, there are more of those than ever before), how do you get your masterpiece to the reviewers who matter? How do you get them to look at your book...and not one the dozens of others that appeared in the last 24 hours?

Paying attention to what Theo Rogers has to say is a good beginning.

His book is a fast read and an easy to follow game plan. Theo has done an in-depth study of Amazon reviewing and how it works, he knows the reviewers who count, and he has provided the definitive roadmap for getting to them. He breaks the process down into very do-able steps, warns you away from the pitfalls and rookie mistakes, and doesn't waste your time. At 74 pages, there is no pointless verbiage to slog through, no unnecessary autobiographical nonsense. You get nothing but the facts. If you have a book to sell, four bucks is a small amount to invest in this kind of solid insider information.

Disclaimer: I know Theo Rogers as a member of the Amazon reviewer community. However, I purchased the book from Amazon and did not accept a free review copy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the price 23 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There was a lot of what I was already aware, and some that I wasn't quite sure of but had confirmed. And some new ones on me. The latter two made it well worth the cost and I will certainly be re-reading it.
