How Do I Get Honest Review Readers For My New Book?

18 replies
Hey guys,

I'm about publishing my new book on Kindle: The 5-Day Wordpress School - How To Become A Wordpress Website Designer In 5 Days Or Less.

And I need people in this forum who'll be willing to give an honest feedback on the book (in terms of how the book delivered on its promises) before it goes live on Amazon.

How do I go about it?

Any ideas?

    Hi:

    Check out bookmarketingtools.com They offer a service to get you honest reviews. I believe they charge $35. They have 35,000 subscribers in that part of their business and they will get your book in front of them for a review. Of course the book has to be free for their reviewers.
    If you are trying to get reviews to move your book up in the rankings then it's something to at least look at to see if it's right for you.

    Good luck,

    Dan

        You place a classified ad. Although with Kindle Books you want your reviews to be a "verified purchase" that means you will have to provide a amazon gift certificate or actually pay for the reviewers to purchase your book

    People offer review copies of products and services on this forum all of the time. What's preventing you from doing that?

      Yes, exactly what I intend to do. Please how do I go about it without being too promotional to the mods.

      Any thoughts?

        Well, I am new here so why not do what I plan to do. When in doubt - ask the mods. :-)

        Thank you.

    Seeing as your book is about Wordpress design maybe a good idea would be to find out where potential readers of your book "hangout", (forums, websites, etc), and offer to provide them with a copy of your book.

    Some may just grab the free offer and run but some may be happy to provide you with a review.

    Hi Emm,

    Running a blog helps you attract loyal readers. These folks will give you honest, glowing reviews because they love your work to begin with.

    I have the highest rated eBook in one of Amazon's categories because I asked my readers to review it and they went and published 48 reviews, every single one of the reviews being 5 stars.

    Happy Blogging

    Ryan

    PS....I'd not attach too much to reviews because many folks buy based on the energy and value in your eBook, not based on reviews. Seriously.

    Also, once your readership grows they will buy your eBooks with no hesitation, boosting your sales and rank on Amazon search without getting many reviews.
