Enhancing an Amazon Listing Now Easier for Self-Publishing Authors with Comprehensive Marketing Services by Outskirts Press

Outskirts Press, the country’s fastest growing self-publishing and book marketing company, now offers all authors -- regardless of where they published -- the opportunity to purchase promotional services for their books listed on Amazon.

Denver, CO, July 27, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Outskirts Press announced today it is now offering authors – regardless of where they have published – three a-la-carte options for promoting books on Amazon, as well as a 25% discount when they purchase all three at the same time.

“Outskirts Press is now making available to all authors these three unique marketing tools for their books, either individually or as a significantly discounted package,” Kelly Schuknecht, Outskirts Press Director of Author Support, said today. “Each of these options helps authors increase exposure for their books on Amazon and that exposure can result, of course, in more sales.”

The three a-la-carte Amazon options available through Outskirts Press are the Amazon Search Inside the Book submission, the Amazon keyword tag submission, and the Amazon Kindle edition. Alternatively, Outskirts Press offers all three options at a generous 25% discount with the all-inclusive Amazon Extreme Marketing Package, which includes a bonus copy of Sell Your Book on Amazon.

Books participating in Amazon’s Search Inside the Book program have been significantly more successful than books not using this program. Amazon’s Search Inside is the online equivalent of customers browsing through a book in a bookstore. Not only can viewers virtually flip through sections of a book, but the added online activity from this makes more accurate and effective search results and recommendations for each book.

The Amazon Keyword tag submission option also helps improve a book’s search results ranking on Amazon. Participating books are tagged with ten applicable keywords (“Tags”) on Amazon’s Product Details page, giving more weight to these terms in Amazon’s search results and providing more exposure for the book.

The third option Outskirts Press now offers to all self-publishing authors is the Amazon Kindle Edition. Amazon itself recently claimed that sales of its Kindle e-books are out-pacing hardback sales on its Amazon.com website. A Kindle Edition also allows self-publishing authors another direct revenue stream for their book as Outskirts Press claims no cut of the sales, leaving the author to earn between 30-70% as set directly with Amazon.
