You thought I was going on a home improvement kick, didn't you? Ha! Fooled you.
No, I'm not talking about hammers and screw drivers. I'm talking about PLOGS. Check it out. You can plog on your Amazon pages!
What, you ask, is plogging?
Here are the details:
The service is called "Amazon Connect
This sends out "plog" messages (plog=publicity blog??)that you write to customers who bought your previous books. Those plog messages also show up on Amazon's front page to people who bought
your books or bought books "similar" to yours
, and they appear on
your books' pages.
Summing up: Your messages will automatically appear on a customer's home page if they have purchased either your book or one similar. HOW COOL IS THAT?!
I'm in the middle of setting up my author's home page. A caveat: this is not a quickie thing. It takes time. You must sign up for an account, list all your books and provide the name and contact info for one person who can verify your authorship of said books. And then you must set up the page itself.
Pain. In. The. Ass.
But it's supposed to do fabulous things! "It can cut through this aluminum can and then slice a tomato..." Okay, got a little carried away. But it COULD help you spread the word about your books. And that's a VERY GOOD thing.
Hope to see you on Amazon Connect!
