Boost book sales with Amazon ads for authors. Learn the basics of Amazon book advertising and sell more books with Amazon advertising.
We often hear of authors who get frustrated that Amazon ads are not the magic bullet they expected for their sales. They may not be getting impressions. They may have trouble getting clicks or, worse, they can’t get readers to convert to buyers and sell more books with their Amazon PPC campaign.
Before you start advertising your book on Amazon, check out these free videos by Mark Dawson, creator of the Ads for Authors online course. Mark is now working with Janet Margot, the Amazonian who helped set up the Amazon book advertising program for Amazon advertising services in Seattle.
Janet presents the extensive Amazon ads module in the course, and for 2021 she has produced a free mini-series to maximise your chances of running successful Amazon ads and recover your Amazon advertising costs.
This series – New Year, New Ads: The Three Pillars of Advertising Readiness – covers often overlooked components you need to get in order before you advertise using Amazon advertising services.
She covers why many Amazon ads never get off the ground and why some that do still don’t perform well. Automation can squash your efforts early, at selling more books on Amazon, if a crucial detail is missing or wrong.
Learn author marketing for self-published authors and get indie book marketing tips for indie authors. Learn how to advertise your book and sell more books with these free book promotion videos and webinars.
The 3 Pillars of Amazon Advertising Readiness
In the first video of the series – PRODUCT – you’ll learn how first impressions count.
Janet considers the factors you need to bear in mind when it comes to the product that you are advertising – your book – and the ways in which you can make your Amazon ads more “clicky.”
You’ll see how a reader’s first look can convert to book sales and what might stop them from clicking buy.
“If you build it, they will come.”
That might be true in a late 80s baseball fantasy film, but it couldn’t be further from the truth when it comes to online bookselling.
Even with a stellar book and a finely tuned detail page, the chances of a paying customer randomly finding and buying your work is practically nil without a steady flow of page visits.
It reviews the internal and external mechanisms to attract pre-qualified customers to your book page. And you’ll learn what you can do to influence the fabled Amazon algorithm and get readers to engage with your author brand.
As consumers, we all know a titillating ad when we see one, but what does that mean for a bookseller?
Clever copy and attention-grabbing graphics can make for a noticeable or really cool ad – but if it doesn’t convert to a sale, it’s just that – a really cool ad.
You’ll get insights on prioritizing which titles to advertise, the difference between strategy and tactics, timing, and what you need to consider when creating your budget.
Learn what questions must be asked and answered in order to build a solid foundation in order for your Amazon Ads strategy to be successful. This year start your ads off on the right foot with a plan that can help unstick your author business.

When most authors think of advertising platforms, there are two they instinctively go for – Facebook and Amazon. Facebook is still the most popular social media platform in the world, and Amazon is full of people already interested in buying a new book.
But there is a third-platform, one dedicated to voracious readers hungry for cheap deals. BookBub can form an incredibly powerful part of any author’s marketing strategy, and not just for its highly-coveted Featured Deals.
On Tuesday 2nd February, join Carlyn Robertson from BookBub and me as we take a deep dive into the top tips for BookBub advertising success.
