How to Boost Your Book Sales on Amazon

2 Day Course – Day 1 – 14th April / Day 2 – 21st April

€60 – €100 PI Member Tickets / Non Member Tickets

Amazon is the #1 destination for shoppers, and many won’t browse past the first page of its search results. This course has been designed to help Irish publishers to navigate the online retailer in order to increase their impact and sales revenue.

As well as the nuts and bolts of how to get your accounts set up effectively, we will look at the finer details of your book pages including metadata, best practices for A+ pages and getting reviews.

Finally, the course will touch on the all-important Amazon AMS and how to create effective lists of keywords.

The course is divided into two sessions, divided over two weeks. This will give you time to go away and apply your knowledge to your account, knowing that there is an opportunity to speak with the team the following week. Both sessions will be engaging, so please be prepared to participate.
