Would you like to sell more books on Amazon?
Well, to sell books on Amazon, you first must be found on Amazon.
This is a course about how to insure your book can be found on amazon.
This course first explains how to select Amazon search keywords, then the rest is up to Kindle Spy...
Kindle Spy (kdspy) is a product that greatly simplifies the process of evaluating keywords for competition on Amazon. Kindle Spy is a browser based plug in that works within the Chrome or Firefox browsers on a Windows PC or Mac. The product scrapes the screen after you perform an Amazon search to analyze the results and present various reports indicating how difficult it is to rank for a supplied search keyword.
This course provides a detailed look at this handy little tool... and best of all, it's free!
I'll see you in the classroom,
Born in Los Angeles, California, in the middle of the last century, I have always wanted to be a writer. After twenty-five some odd years spent working in the computer industry in the heart of the Silicon Valley, first for Lockheed as a Systems Programmer and later for Cisco Systems as a test tool developer, I managed to retire early and begin my next career as a self-published author.
Along with writing and publishing my own novels I also publish the works of my wife, Melanie Jackson. During the past four years I’ve published well over 100 books in paperback and eBook formats. Oddly enough this includes eBooks on how to self-publish books and how to create professional looking book covers using the GIMP. I’ve also recorded and distributed a pair of audiobooks available for purchase on Amazon and Audible. Finally, I spend a portion of my time maintaining both my website and my wife’s website, which was developed using WordPress.
My latest endeavor, begun in July of 2014, is to record training courses for distribution via Udemy. My goal is to provide low cost high quality screen cast based educational material focusing on my area of expertise; namely, self-publishing and book cover design using the GIMP. As time permits, I plan to expand my catalog to cover Web page development and Udemy course preparation.
I currently live in the beautiful California wine country with my wife, published author Melanie Jackson, and Butterscotch the cat.
