Here’s a Free Kindle previewer tool to encourage fast ebook reading
If you are promoting ebooks, you will know that it takes a potential reader a number of clicks to get from a book link on your author website or blog, before finally making it through to the Look Inside feature on your Amazon book page.
That’s if they bother to click the cover on Amazon to find the Look Inside preview read. Even if they do, the table of contents and credits can sometimes take up half of the preview read.
Many authors know that getting someone to click a book link is the first hurdle. But wouldn’t it be fantastic if your potential book buyer was taken immediately from your cover image on your website, to your book’s Look Inside preview? And also, directly to chapter one. It would certainly help your book sales.
Well, now you can do this now with a clever book marketing tool from Amazon marketing services.
Amazon has a very small Embed link on every book sales page, and while small and hardly noticeable, it is an extremely powerful tool to create Kindle promotion for your books.
It creates a clickable cover image of your book, with the options to either buy or preview read your book. With only one click.
From my experience, I have tried all types of linking to Amazon, but none have been as efficient at this Amazon book tool.
One click and your reader is into previewing your book or Kindle book!
So, how do you use the Amazon previewer tool?
First, go to your book page on Amazon, and look to the right, under the pricing panel, and click <Embed>.
When you click, a pop-up window appears, where you can make modifications to suit your website, plus a couple of other options.
The first thing to do is select Embed to your site. If you have an Amazon Associates account, you can also add your Amazon Associates ID.
The most important though is See more options.
Click it to open, and select the cover image size to suit where you will use it on your website or blog.
Then select either open in new tab, or in place, and lastly, if you wish to have a buy button.
Well, of course, you want a buy button!
Once you have selected your options, copy the code from the iframe code line, and then paste the code into your website.
Here is an example of the tool in action. Yes, it’s my book of course.
Also notice that since writing this post, I have changed to a new cover. Amazon automatically updates the embed tool, to show the new cover.
Of course, readers can buy or share your book on social media just as quickly too.
You did click to try it, didn’t you?
So, are you updating your all your books with the Kindle previewer tool on your website or blog yet?
