Amazon Wants You to Like Them
In an attempt to be more social media friendly to authors, Amazon has just added their own “like” button, very much similar to the Facebook like button.
As a published author and one who teaches social media marketing for authors, I’m trained to refresh my Amazon page daily to see if there are new reviews or the current status of my rank.
Today I was greeted with the like button close to the title of my book, The Perils of Cyber-Dating. Naturally, I decided to like myself. In addition to video reviews, author blogs, and the ability to post your own book trailer on your author page, Amazon does a great job keeping the social in social media.
In time we’ll see if would-be reviewers and book lovers decide to click the like button instead of taking the time to review your book. As this is a new feature, don’t worry if the amount of likes fits on one hand only.
Naturally if you’re reading this post, I hope you take the time to like it as well.
