Book reviews are one of the keystones of a successful book promotion.
YET … I continually see authors promoting their books with ZERO reviews. I also see the amazing sales and downloads that authors who have 30 or more reviews get.
You can ask friends or relatives (without the same last name) to help. BUT for some reason authors are either shy about asking OR they’ve already asked too many times!
You can do book review trades … which requires A LOT of work including chasing some of your book review partners around. The big disappointment is getting one sentence reviews that could apply to any book. If you’ve gone this route you KNOW what I mean!!
I’d rather buy reviews! And many people do, in spite of the risks.
Many authors think “if I do a free day promo, I’ll get reviews from people who have downloaded my book.” They are shocked and disappointed to see that they may get 1-2 or even NO reviews.
The fact is, IF you do a free-days promotion without reviews already in place, you may be very disappointed with the results of your promotion. People are like lemmings, if they don’t see proof that someone else has downloaded and liked your book, they will be very reluctant to get your book EVEN if it is FREE. Go figure!! You should have at least one or two (5+ is better) reviews IN place before you do a FREE-day promo!!

HOW TO GET REVIEWS
Alinka’s 100 Review Book Launch is a step-by-step system to launching a book with 100 Amazon reviews and building an email list at the same time.
She tested it on one of her new children’s books and got 100 reviews in 72 hours … which is phenomenal! I’d love to get TEN reviews in 72 hours!!
Someone asked her, if the 100 Review Book Launch system worked only on new books … and her reply was that same principles could be used for books that were already launched and selling.
Right now you can get 100 Review Book Launch for less than $10. This is one of those products that increases in price at regular intervals.
