One of the tried and true ways to increase book sales involves soliciting positive book reviews. Most authors have heard how the reviews offered by The New York Times can affect book sales, but more and more reviews offered at on-line portals, like Amazon.com, are affecting book buyers purchasing decisions.
It’s possible to actually solicit good reviews for your book, thereby increasing the number of on-line sales you make. Book marketing coach Dana Lynn Smith knows all about this. The author of How to Get Your Book Reviewed: Sell More Books with Reviews, Testimonials and Endorsements—a must have for all authors today and a great addition to Dana’s Savvy Book Marketer series, today she offers a guest blog post full of a variety of practical tips on how to get reviews posted to online bookstore—tips any writer can put to use, no matter how little marketing or promoting experience they have (or how little effort they want to make promoting their book).
