Graham | 99 comments Hi guys,

I've got these two reviews for my book that I would really like on the front of my Amazon page - don't get me wrong, I love and appreciate all of my reviews but these two in particular are well written and I think they'd serve very well to help promote my book if they were a little easier to access by being immediately visible. If you'd be so kind as to tag these two reviews as "helpful" that'd be fantastic and if you have any you'd like me to tag for you in return please let me know. Thanks :)

I'm still new to this, how do you tag a review?


message 3: by Graham (new)

Graham | 99 comments If you click on either one of those links, and scroll to the bottom, there's a question that asks "was this review helpful to you?" with a button for yes and a button for no. The more clicks you get for Yes, the more helpful that review becomes and the more helpful it becomes the higher up it shows on your page so it's more visible.

Done! Good luck, friend.


message 5: by Paulette (new)

Paulette Mahurin | 439 comments Not a review, rather a news article in the VC Star, The largest circulating press in Ventura County, CA, featured in today's Sunday paper. This is for anyone who wants to read my book, is interested in reading it, or trying to decided if it'll interest them. Please have a look and by all means feel free to comment back to me.
Thanks for this opportunity to share.

John (jaymack) | 36 comments Graham, I clicked on "Helpful" for those reviews. Could you do the same for me? The link to the reviews for my book 13 Scary Stories is here.
If you could click "Helpful" for the review "Tons of Fun" and "Unhelpful" for "Great for storytelling" I'd be much obliged. It drives me crazy that the lukewarm "Great for storytelling" review is so prominent. Maybe this will help.

Thanks, my friend. Feel free to check out the latest on the book's page on facebook. It was just written up in the largest newspaper in Ventura County (pop: 830,000) front page of the Life section. I'm getting a lot of support, especially since profits going to the first and only no-kill animal shelter in VC. Always wishing you tons of success on your well written most important read!

Cheryl- Can you give me a link to your book on Amazon? I could not find it.
I think this could be the start of somehting good on how to find good authors and good books. Invite more people to the party.

Are your books only on kindle. I just checked and the 3 listed just said kindle. Sadly, I don't own a kindle but yours do look really good! I'm due to get a kindle soon...:-) Also, thanks for all your supportive comments to the other authors here. Hasn't gone unnoticed. This is a wonderful community of authors helping each other.

Graham | 99 comments Thanks Brian, I've liked and tagged your books and listed your reviews as helpful (the 4 and 5 star ones).

Thanks again

Just liked them for you.

I have been tracking my sales results versus promotional activity, tagging, likes reviews etc. I have run sponsored ads for Goodreads and watched the impact. I have monitored reviews on Amazon. They are all great but the one that moves sales above all else are... great reviews on Amazon. Nothing better. Tell your friends to buy your book and if they like it to write a review.

Brenda, Cheryl and Neil loved your work and efforts and wrote reviews for you. Keep up the great work!

If you are interested take a look at my books on Amazon at- http://www.amazon.com/Bryan-Mooney/e/...

Have a great day.
