Face it, Kindle eBook reviews are hard to get. You need a method to get them that works, and you want to "keep it legal" when it comes to Amazon policies. This course shows you the way.

You'll discover how to get Kindle reviews a fast, effective and legal way.

Money can be made by writing and selling eBooks. But sales are often dependent on reviews. Reviews offer social proof that others think you had something to say and that you did a good job of saying it.

Many authors panic and they pay for reviews. That's always a bad decision for the reasons I discuss in the course. 

The course is jam-packed with information about what you should avoid when it comes to reviews, along with the positive things you need to do.

I discuss the recent updated Amazon review policy, and that's essential knowledge for anyone seeking book reviews on Amazon. 

You don't need to buy reviews or leave them to chance. Use these methods to get honest reviews for your eBook.

Who is the target audience?
  • Ideal course for anyone who has written a Kindle eBook or is planning to write and publish one.
  • Any author that wants to get more book sales by getting the social proof that reviews offer
  • Anyone who wants to know how to get ethical reviews quickly
