Amazon Marketing

C. L. Larson

Does anyone have experience with the Amazon marketing services? I have very recently gone live with my first book so I don't have any word of mouth or return readers.

If I were to use Amazon's marketing services which services have you guys and gals had the most luck with?

I see there are no replies here. I just ran an Amazon ad. I took all their suggestions, did no special tweaking.

And got basically no results. Twelve impressions over two weeks; two clicks. Spent a dollar and a quarter, total. So, nothing gained, almost nothing spent.

I just bought Publisher Rocket (formerly KDP Rocket) and am trying not to drown in options and data. But I'm determined to push on the Amazon ads a bit harder. Then reach for BookBub and its kin. Then Facebook. Or maybe all at once!

Like C. L., I'd love to hear what others have done.

Since I posted this, I have done two separate ad campaigns on Amazon. The first was a generic ad that used their automated keywords, like Skip I got basically nothing. The second campaign I used my own keywords that I thought would match my book. This campaign has done far better in regards to impressions 27,521 so far and better on clicks 58 so far but no better on sales. I may have gotten a read or two from KU but sales is 0.

I may have to rewrite my description.
