How to Sale 100,000 book on Amazon:
- More Content
- Increase Average Order Value
Crystal wrote and published 6 books in her first year as a writer. I’m not saying that you need to publish 6 books but the more content you have the better. This allows you to reach your ideal audience more. Don’t focus so much on the dollar amount in the beginning. Focus more on creating more content and the money will come. The key is consistency. Stay current with your materials and consistently find ways to reach your readers. Build a solid community and team around your brand.
Discover what is trending in your niche on Amazon and create something similar to sale and add to your bundle offer.
Increase Average Order Value
After you have created your content find ways to bundle your products in order to increase the average order value. In the interview, Crystal mentioned that she would bundle 3 to 4 book or sale 2 for a certain price. This increases revenue and adds value to your products. Upsales, cross-sales, and down sales are awesome ways to increase sales as well. Do your research and find ways to put more products into the hands of consumers.
Connecting and building relationships is the name of the game. Reach out to influencers and send them a free copy of your book. This is a great option for increasing exposure and building your audience. Don’t count out the small influencers because they have a high chance of growing.
When posting content be sure to use trending keywords.
