Tuesday's Tools: NovelRank
NovelRank tracks sales and book position on Amazon. It's the easiest thing to make your author's go nuts since spreadsheet sales tracking!!
If your author is worried about being #1 on Amazon or where their book ranks in the ratings, this is the tool!!
Push the button, give 'em your ASIN, choose your between book sales or sales rank and off you go!! It gives you a beautiful chart/graph. But what I like most about NovelRank is what I circled in red below:
What a great way to find new readers. The price to get featured is a donation so you help out the site. I love that. As for the rank tool itself, I feel it's a bit too much on keeping score against other writers. I subscribe to the Skip Cohen lessons learned in marketing:
1. Don’t compare yourself to others in the market.
ACTION ITEM: If your author freaks out about the rankings, just match their frantics and say, "Oh no!! You're not ranked #1? We've got to get you to Write MORE good BOOKS!!"
Watch them write like the wind...(the only way to write!!)
