By now you have most likely heard about Amazon A+ Content for authors. While some book marketing experts advise against Amazon A+ Content as it will push your marketing blurb further down the page on mobile, many successful authors swear their A+ Content increases their sales.
Who's right? My guess is a little of both.
Know Your Reader
The success of an author's Amazon A+ Content is likely dependent on several factors including your genre, readership and what kind of A+ Content you choose to upload to your sales page.
As an author, it's your responsibility to know your audience and what kind of content they will respond well to – if any.
- What kind of A+ Content captures their attention?
- What kind of A+ Content do bestselling authors in your genre have on their sales pages?
- Do books like yours have any A+ Content posted?
Hook Your Reader
If your audience seems to respond well to Amazon A+ Content, it's important that you use dynamic graphics that intrigue a reader. Think of it as a visual hook, that goes hand in hand with your written hook.
Close the Sale
Remember, a great hook will intrigue readers and convince them to keep scrolling, but then it's the job of your full marketing copy to close the sale. Make sure you have honed the sales copy on your Amazon page to easily transition readers from browsing to buying.
