If you are a Kindle publisher and Facebook user, there is a nifty app from Freebooksy that will allow you to easily set up a store on Facebook that features your Amazon listings.
In addition to being able to purchase your books easily, visitors can also sign up for your mailing list, view book signing events (or online book tour, maybe?) and share your author profile with their Friends.
Even if you are selling your ebooks on another platform, you can still use the Author Marketing App. Rather than plugging in the ISBN and letting it auto-populate the required fields, you would manually create your listing.
Things to Note
There was a small issue with character formatting when it pulled in the description from the ISBN. Apostrophes seem to wreak havoc everywhere they go online. It was a quick fix however. Click “Edit Book” and retype them. Upon saving, the description now appears correctly.
It does appear that Freebooksy is tagging Amazon listings with their Associates tag. I cannot verify that 100% as I don’t see it disclosed anywhere, but I’m okay with that for now. It’s a pretty cool little app and they are offering it at no charge. If it helps me sell a few more books, I’m happy to give them 15 cents per book for assisting in that sale.
You can get the Author Marketing App on Freebooksy.
Do you have your books featured on your Facebook Page? What app are you currently using?
