- Try Amazons Top Reviewers List- These reviewers have the credibility and relevancy that will help your book get sold. When you go through the list of reviewers you want to pick the ones to contact that review the kind of book you wrote; fiction, non-fiction, romance, sci-fi, that sort of distinction. Then you spend a few days contacting them and politely asking them to review your book. Not all of them will take you up on it but you will get a few of them and that is a good start.
- Tell Everyone You Can Think Of- Friends, relatives, neighbors, announce it on your authors Facebook page and your blog if you have those. (It is a good idea to create those too.) This will garner a few more reviews.
- Create A Video- Make a video of yourself pitching your new book and post it on YouTube. Accounts with YouTube are free and you can link them anywhere you think will get people's attention.
- Kindle Direct Publishing- Joining the Kindle Direct Publishing gets you five free promotional days every 90 days where your book is offered for free for that limited time. You will get another handful of reviews from that.
You want to understand it is very important to get your book reviewed for sales purposes. Without sales, no one will read it and having people read your book was the whole point in writing it in the first place wasn't it. Being an author means you have something to say and that is hard to do if you cannot reach people.
These are some of the highest recommended ways of getting reviews and there are others out there for you to try as well. Most of these and others do not take too much time and once you start getting reviews more will follow. Reviews are the best promotion you can get as well as the most important in self-publishing. Try a few of these ideas and you will be pleased with the results.
