Intro to Book Reviews
Book reviews are among the top things buyers look at on the purchase page for a book. More than the content of the book reviews, what people notice the most is the total number of reviews. The higher the number of reviews, the more likely a person is to purchase the book and the higher rank a book can reach in its categories.
But, it’s a catch-22. Book reviews can help increase book sales, but you need to sell your book to get reviews . . . so how does an emerging author break this cycle?
Learn where to look for book reviews and how to get more of them in the Intro to Book Reviews course, taught by Melissa Dalton Martinez. In this course, you will learn how you can get your book reviewed on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, book blogs, and more.
