This review is from: Let's Get Visible: How To Get Noticed And Sell More Books (Let's Get Publishing Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
David Gaughran's latest is destined to become a classic of its kind, just like its predecessor Let's Get Digital. Short, pithy and no-nonsense, this book packs a wealth of insight into the factors that help or hinder a book's visibility on Amazon in every page.
Finally, I understand the 'Zon's Popularity Lists (as opposed to Bestseller Lists), and why a precipitate drop-off in sales isn't evidence of some malevolent force at work in the depths of Jeff Bezos's company, but rather a fairly straightforward function of the quite comprehensible algorithms Amazon employs. Gaughran's great achievement is to render these concepts in terms that even a mathematical illiterate like me can understand. I implemented the author's advice about category changes as soon as I read it, and within 24 hours found one of my novels in the top three on its particular Popularity List. Sales have risen accordingly.
Every author publishing digitally needs this book. It's essential.
