How to Post Reviews on Amazon

If you’ve enjoyed an Indie author’s work, you can be a big help by taking a few minutes to post a review on the book’s page. Without the name recognition of best-selling authors, Indie authors are at a disadvantage when it comes to getting people to purchase their work. It’s a huge help to have reviews on the book’s page. The reviews give prospective purchasers a sense of how real readers reacted to the book.

Here’s a quick rundown of how you can make a big difference in a short time.

  1. DDD-sales pageVisit the author’s page. For this example, we’ll use Down Dog Diary by Sherry Roberts.
  2. SHARE IT: If you want to tell others about the book (please do), go to the tool bar above the Amazon logo and click on “Share”. You will have the option to spread the word via Facebook or Twitter. Click on the icon of your choice share this book with your friends and followers.
  3. REVIEW IT: Scroll down to the Review section of the page and click the “Write a customer review” button. Enter a rating for the book, give your review a title, then enter your review. Don’t be bashful. This is not intended to be a complete scholarly review. All that is required is a few sentences of honest reaction by a real reader. Just tell others why you liked the book.

Thank you. You’ve been a big help.
