After first sharing the link to my book Become the Best You on my personal Facebook page, I was completely overwhelmed by the amount of support I received.
Friends from far and wide, some I’ve not spoken to in years, were sharing the link and helping me spread the word. Within days people were getting in touch to tell me that they’d read the book, sometimes in one sitting, and that they’d been deeply moved by it.
Two years later, and most of them still haven’t written an Amazon review. I don’t take it personally, as I understand that life gets in the way.
Why Amazon reviews are important
But here’s the thing. There are almost two million books listed on Kindle, with around 100,000 new books being uploaded every single month. That’s a rather large haystack to find my needle of a book in, unless you are specifically looking for it. Lots of good reviews make all the difference.
The way I see it, is the more reviews you have (assuming they are mostly four and five stars of course), the more it convinces would-be readers who are sitting on the fence to take the plunge and buy the book.
I know from personal experience that reviews have massively influenced my own decision making when it comes to Amazon purchases across the board, not just books.
If you have left a review for my book, I’d like to thank you from the bottom of my heart. If you have read it, but haven’t had the time to review it yet, please follow the simple four step guide to your left to do so. Good vibes are coming your way.
What the newest Amazon reviews say about Become the Best You
5.0 out of 5 stars ‘A fantastic and very worthwhile read’ by Amazon customer on 13 October 2016 (Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase)
“What a fantastic read! The honesty of the author makes it very relatable and gives it more depth than a 2 dimensional self help book. I really enjoyed the way that renee takes the reader through what she feels were the cause of many of the issues she faced and still faces and provides some great advice for getting through these. It’s great to be able to go on the journey with her and apply some of her tips!”
5.0 out of 5 stars ‘Practical suggestions offered in a useful and non preachy way’ By Francesca on 12 October 2016 (Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase)
“This book offers the reader not only a candid description of real life experiences, but also a useful approach on how to transform your present and future.
Told it in very simple terms, and written in a more realistic way than any other preaching self help books, ‘Become the best of you’ makes suggestions to overcome life hurdles which the reader can practically relate to and apply in real life. Thoroughly recommend this read.”
5.0 out of 5 stars ‘High recommended’ by Amazon customer on 12 October 2016 (Format: Paperback)
