Start this course

Over 70% of all ebooks are sold on the Kindle Store, so wouldn’t it be nice to get your book more visibility on Amazon? Of course, that's easier said than done, with well over 1,000,000 books being published on that store every year… But if you manage to hit the right visibility spots by picking the right metadata and timing your promotions, you can get the Amazon algorithms to do most of your marketing work for you!

This is what your course is all about. Having published over 100 books, Adam Houge has learnt nearly every secret there is to know about Amazon algorithms, so he's probably the best person to learn from!

What you'll learn in this course

  • How Amazon’s free and paid algorithms works
  • How to pick the right keywords and categories
  • What the "perfect" launch looks like for a free book
  • How to time your promotions when launching a paid book
  • The impact of reviews on your rankings (it's not what you might think!)
