I have written and self-published 126 eBooks on Amazon.
Toss in my growing audio book and paperback library and I have a strong digital footprint on the platform.
Today I want to discuss an outside of the box way to increase blog traffic: self-publish eBooks on Amazon.
Readers find me regularly through the platform because I properly optimize the site to drive traffic to Blogging From Paradise.
If you want targeted traffic to visit your blog begin writing and self-publishing eBooks on Amazon.
Or if you are a self-published author follow a few easy tips to boost your blog traffic through this epic site.
Why this Works
Need I say anymore?
This digital storefront titan draws in millions upon millions of visitors for all types of needs.
Many of these customers purchase and enjoy eBooks for their Kindle devices.
You can tap into this huge, ever-growing eBook-reading market to increase the flow of traffic to your blog.
Amazon is essentially the Google of digital storefronts.
The Google of Digital Storefronts
Amazon is the Google of digital storefronts.
People from the US, Australia, India, Japan, and other lands visit the site daily for countless needs.
Access this huge, worldwide, targeted audience to drive traffic to your blog from all over the globe.
Most bloggers think way too inside the box; Amazon eBooks come after establishing a blog, in their minds.
Think in reverse.
The day you begin blogging is a fine day to begin writing and self-publishing your first eBook. People will find you through this site if you properly optimize the eBook, the eBook summary and author page for driving blog traffic.
Drop Your Link
Drop your blog link on your Amazon author page. Let folks know how they can reach you.
Also include your blog link in every eBook you self-publish.
I conclude all of my 126 eBooks with a call to action: visit my blog and sign up for my email list. Easy traffic builder and list builder too.
At the conclusion of your eBook summary drop a short, bio-style paragraph noting your name, how you help readers and drop the name of your blog too. No need to link up but a simple mention heightens reader curiosity and also boosts blog traffic.
Inquiring minds need to Google, right?
Drop Your Brand Logo
I drop my brand logo on every Blogging From Paradise eBook, audio book and paperback.
Smart branding. But in addition to the branding continuity, readers find me by Googling “Blogging From Paradise” without even buying and reading my eBooks.
Add your brand logo to every eBook, audio book and paperback cover. Drive steady traffic to your blog through the power of branding.
Include Proper Keywords
Include proper keywords via your eBook set up to drive targeted traffic to your blog.
If you run a blogging tips themed blog and self publish blogging tips themed eBooks interested readers will search for “blogging tips” on Amazon, find your eBook and make the buy.
If you link to your blog via the eBook itself and the eBook summary you can drive targeted, interested, intrigued traffic to your blog.
But make sure to add the proper blogging themed keywords to the appropriate fields when setting up your eBook before self-publishing. Complete this step to increase targeted traffic to your blog through Amazon.
I filmed a video explaining this concept from a sweet little apartment by Central Park West in NYC:
