Now has never been a better time to independently publish your own book. Ebook sales are up around 4,000 percent since 2004, and technological advances like Amazon’s Kindle Cloud Reader have made it possible to read Kindle books anywhere and on any device. Probably the best opportunity to get your book out there is through Amazon Kindle. If you have published to Kindle before, you know what a fantastic opportunity this is.
However, to succeed with an ebook, or any book, you need to find a market that needs your work. And you need to know something about keywords, since these are an important part of your book’s metadata and how readers find new titles. Not only that, you need to find reviewers; these days, the more good reviews a book garners, the more copies it sells.
All of this can feel a bit daunting. That’s where AK Booster Pro comes in. It helps independent publishers with these tasks. This Adobe software (Mac and PC enabled) is broken into three sections. A “Niche Finder” section, a “Submitter” section and finally, a “Reviewer” section, which will help get your book more exposure.
First, the Niche Finder allows authors to find hot niches and keywords to write their books by extracting and presenting keywords Amazon Kindle customers are actually typing in. The ‘rank’ button organizes them by popularity and by typing in a seed keyword like”‘vegetarian,” AK Booster is able to drill into untapped topics like “vegetarian slow cookers” that people are searching for, but have not written about yet.
When you find an interesting keyword, switch to the “Get Scores” section to see how profitable and how in demand that keyword idea could be. The demand score shows how many users are searching for this topic, the competition shows how competitive this idea is, and finally the overall score shows you how easy it is to rank and make money from this idea.
The Submitter section contains the largest number of free and paid sites to advertise and submit your book to during its KDP select free days. These include popular Kindle book sites like PixelofInk.com or KindleNationDaily.com. To submit your book, just click on the picture, fill out your info, and away your book goes.
Finally, the Reviewer section finds potential people to review your book who have left a review or are interested in your book’s subject. You can search for reviewers on Amazon, Goodreads, and Facebook. Simply type in your book topic keyword and click search. AK Booster will do the rest and find you interested reviewers in your niche along with their contact information.
