When trying to get you book out there and noticed, all of a sudden it seems like everyone else has published too. So how can you get their attention focused on yours?

As an incentive to read your book consider a contest. Offer readers a chance to win a prize for their interest in it after reading. In exchange you are only asking that they leave a review, and a “Like” in your book’s Facebook page.

iUniverse Writer’s Tips offers this novel approach to simultaneously increase your Facebook presence, while increasing your rank on Amazon.com.


1) Get more reviews on Amazon.com

The retail giant’s algorithms are skewed towards giving items with more reviews additional prominent exposure. These reviews mean your book ranks higher, which transfers to larger sales and further reviews.

2) Get more “Likes” on your book’s Facebook page

As soon as someone likes your page all their friends know about it. Hopefully this will pique their interest and curiousity, and check out your book.

3) These things will generate MORE SALES and MORE EXPOSURE!
