Do you feel that your book (which is available either exclusively or primarily online) isn't reaching your target audience? Have you ever heard anyone say that it's hard to make the decision to buy a book without taking a sneak peek and thumbing through the pages? Do you wonder why some books sell very well online while yours doesn't? Well, Outskirts Press has the perfect solution!
Our Amazon Search Inside the Book marketing option will allow you to take advantage of Amazon's online equivalent to browsing a bookstore. Books that participate in this program feature a "Look Inside" icon over their Amazon cover image, which invites potential customers to electronically "flip" through a small section of the book. This increases the level of confidence a customer has in your book - most likely leading up to a higher volume of book sales. According to Amazon, books participating in this program enjoy significant sales improvement, on average, over books that do not.
When you participate in the Amazon Search Inside the Book program, Amazon digitally catalogs the text of your book - which may result in more accurate and targeted search results and recommendations. Ultimately, the more buyers who are exposed to your book, the greater the likelihood that you will sell more copies. Can you imagine the success you'll have?
"Selling books online is very different compared to face- to- face or in a bookstore. Outskirts Press makes it easy for potential buyers to preview the front and back covers, and peruse the inside of the book at leisure before they buy it. Of course this means a greater likelihood of sales for me."
- Lynne Burke, author of In Small Measures
How it works:
When you purchase this option, you are agreeing to Amazon’s Participation Agreement of the Search Inside! Program, so be sure to read it. Outskirts Press will prepare the unique Search Inside file per Amazon's specifications and submit it to Amazon on your behalf (a copy of the file is not provided to the author). Once the Search Inside file is submitted, it can take up to 4 weeks for the Search Inside! Feature to appear on the listing for the book on the Amazon website, although it is often much faster. The time it takes is completely at the discretion of Amazon and outside of the control of Outskirts Press. The Amazon Search Inside the Book Submission Service is a one-time service. In the case of any post-publication revisions that are done on the book, the Amazon Search Inside the Book Submission Service must be purchased again in order for Outskirts Press to create and submit a new file with the revised version of the book. The Amazon Search Inside the Book Submission Service option fee is non-refundable once ordered.
