Book Marketing Tip – Writing Reviews
- January 17, 2023
Have you ever been on Amazon browsing reviews and then read a really good review and decided to buy the book that you are looking at because of the review? A well-crafted review can really tip the scales for me when I am looking to read a book.
As a writer for self-published Christian books, I took to writing reviews for every book that I read and loved and signed off the review with this tag line
Your full name
Author of (number) Christian books on Amazon
I have found in my time of writing books and speaking to people on Facebook that have read my books, that quite a number of people have found my books because of the reviews that I write.
You are a writer, and you have books to sell, and as a writer, you are probably a reader like me, and so what is stopping you from writing positive reviews. And putting a tagline like mine.
You can write a review for a book in Intimacy with God and sign off with a tag that says
Author of 6 Christian books on Amazon including 7 Tips to Intimacy with Jesus
Did you know that Amazon will allow you to do that? How great would it be to be one of the first people to write a comprehensive and positive review on Amazon for that book on Intimacy with God and have people upvote your review to such a point that you are the first or second review to be read on a popular author’s page?
Now a few rules with reviews
I only write reviews for books that I enjoyed, and loved. The least number of stars I write a review for is 3 stars, but most often my reviews are 5 stars and sometimes 4 stars. I will only do a 3-star review when I have something negative to say about a book, yet I still want the people to read the book. However, there is something about the book that I feel readers need to be aware of.
I don’t write two or one-star reviews, however, I am happy other people take the time to write extensive 1-star reviews because they often help me from buying a book that is going to let me down.
I also make a point of letting people know how the book made me feel. Many times, I will use a sentence to let people know that I am a writer like this sentence.
As a Christian writer, I appreciate the candor of this writer when he speaks about his indiscretions as I try to use the same candor in my books, and I love people who are transparent.
This line I have just used lets the reader know that the book is transparent and also that I am a transparent writer myself.
As a writer concentrate on blessing other writers, and your reviews will be fine.
