Hello, SEers John with you again. Today I want to share something I learned about creating a unique link to Amazon to help your readers locate the review section quickly.
You and I both know reviews are tough to get. Anything we can do to make the task easier for the reader is probably something we should investigate.
It is now straightforward to create direct access to your books for the purpose of a review. The reader won’t have to hunt around Amazon for your book. You can give them a link that, with one click and a sign in, they are right at the review section.
To do this, you need to start with the Amazon core link.
If the reader clicks on this link, it will take them to all their purchases. (They will have to sign in to their Amazon account.)
Next, add your book’s ASIN or ISBN 10 on end, so you have a link like this.
If you try to click on your own book’s link, Amazon will give you an error message since authors can’t review their own books.
Now that we have this link, how do we use it?
1 In your promo material, when you say, “Don’t forget to leave a review.” You can also say, “Use this review link as a short cut to the book.”
2 On Twitter, you can use the link to direct folks to your book should they want to leave a review.
3 In the back material of your book, you can leave the link with a reminder about leaving a review.
4 You can hire a skywriter to spell out the link in smoke. (You know I’m kidding, right?)
So that’s about it. Hope this little bit of advice gets you more reviews.
