Using Optimized Book Landing Pages to Convert Interested Readers into Book Buyers

Average rating: *****
(5.00, 1 rating)

Both publishers and authors alike are shifting, or attempting, to shift to new methods of marketing. At the same time old marketing approaches like author tours still can remain effective. Some aspects of a marketing plan may be working. Others not so much. Your Social media campaign may be playing a crucial role in a books’ success but not be apparent when a reader checks out the title on Amazon or even your own site. Landing pages are constructed with the single goal of converting visitors to purchasers. Building a search engine optimized landing page for your book, aggregating all of your marketing information, and having an e-commerce solution or buy button on the same page can convert an interested reader to a book buyer when interest is at its peak.

This presentation will discuss:

  • A quick look at current publisher site approaches.
  • The use of author sites vs. book centric sites.
  • A survey of non-publisher sites that support book centric and author centric sites.
