10 Ways to Boost an Author’s Reputation

1. BUY AUTHOR’S BOOKS FROM AMAZON AND THEIR WEBSITE.
By doing so, you are helping us boost our Amazon rank and helping us get in front of others who are looking up books in our genre.

2. PRE-ORDER AUTHOR’S NEXT BOOK.
By pre-ordering an author’s book, this encourages booksellers to order more stock in anticipation of higher demand and, in turn, counts towards their first week’s sales. Also, pre-ordering builds buzz around the book, which can lead to promotions and create more media interest and generate more buzz across the internet web.

3. RATE AND REVIEW AUTHOR’S
Author’s get bumped up in Amazon’s algorithm. Positive reviews look better when someone browses for the book on Amazon and Goodreads. When rating and reviewing an author’s work is to avoid spoilers, give a sense of the book’s genre, name the author, and write in the first person.

4. FOLLOW AUTHOR’S ON SOCIAL MEDIA
By doing so, you’ll be in a position to retweet or share relevant posts to get more eyeballs on their work for others to purchase their books.

5. SEND AUTHOR’S A FAN LETTER
Shows authors that you appreciate their work, and it encourages authors to keep writing and publishing books to make a difference in the world.

6. REVIEW AUTHOR’S WORK ON YOUR BLOG
A review on a blog is just as influential in a major publication.

7. SHARE AUTHOR’S REVIEWS
This rewards the publication that commissioned and ran it.

8. NOMINATE AUTHOR’S FOR AWARDS

9. JOIN AUTHOR’S MAILING LIST

10. CHECK OUT AUTHOR’S BOOKS AT THE LIBRARY
