Amazon Decoded: A Marketing Guide To The Kindle Store is FREE Amazon Marketing

Let’s Get Digital 3 was announced this week and it is going very well indeed, with 1,000 copies pre-ordered already. The amount of sharing and recommending and tweeting has been spectacular – I’m very grateful to you all.

In fact, I have a gift for you.

Amazon Decoded: A Marketing Guide to the Kindle Store is now available. And it’s FREE. All you need to do is sign up to my mailing list to get a copy. That’s it. And you can unsubscribe right after if you wish, I don’t mind at all! Really.

If you need more convincing, here’s the blurb:

The author of Let’s Get Digital and Let’s Get Visible is back to reveal the inner machinations of the biggest bookstore in the world. By reading Amazon Decoded: A Marketing Guide To The Kindle Store, you will:

  • learn what “visibility marketing” is and how factoring Amazon’s bookselling philosophy into your promotions can boost your sales;
  • discover what goes into Sales Rank and dispel some remarkably common myths in the process;
  • understand the critical differences between the Best Seller list and the Popularity list, and why that is important for marketing strategy.

And you will get practical, actionable advice, turning all this new knowledge into marketing plans you can implement right away.

Amazon Decoded is exclusively available as a free bonus to my mailing list subscribers. Which means you can’t get it anywhere else. 


If you’re thinking “this sounds like an updated version of Let’s Get Visible” you’re right.

It’s essentially Let’s Get Visible Redux—a tight, 50-page book which covers how all the various parts of the Kindle Store work in 2018, and, crucially, how that must affect your marketing plans, with advice based on if you are wide vs. in Kindle Unlimited.

I’ll be discussing a key aspect of Amazon Decoded in a FREE live webinar organized by Reedsy next week.

The webinar is titled Winning Amazon’s Secret Popularity Contest and it will delve into the Popularity list and related algorithms, and then explain how all that affects promo plans.

It kicks off at 3pm EST/8pm GMT on Wednesday January 24. Register here to guarantee your spot.

And if you’re curious why I moved away from such a successful and well-known brand like Let’s Get Visible I’m happy to discuss that in the comments, along with any other aspect of Amazon Decoded or Let’s Get Digital 3 and the associated launch-circus.

Finally, don’t forget to pre-order Let’s Get Digital 3 if you haven’t done so already! The book will drop onto your ereader next Thursday, so you don’t have long to wait, and the price will jump up to $4.99 shortly after that…
