Amazon Categories: Create Best Sellers



You crave having your book placed on the bestseller list category on Amazon yet you have done nothing to give your sales a huge nudge to get it there. Amazon has given you the tools to create that number one best seller in more than one category and Aggie Villanueva’s innovative book will teach you the many important secrets, skills and ways to become a best selling author using Amazon. The best part is it is free. Amazon Categories: Create Bestsellers is your 75 page resource and guide to becoming number one. Now, all you have to do is read the book, send come copies to other authors so they will learn the secrets of success too and you are on the way. As the author states Amazon has created a clever and brilliant marketing engine that drills through several layers of free and automated publicity. Once again: IT IS FREE!


Let’s being with the Customer Reviewers section, which has huge potential for untapped publicity. Believe it or not the Amazon Auto bots or robots monitor and keep track of these reviews just to make you eligible for their many top one hundred lists and recommendations. Pay close attention to the tag lines too. After reading this I went to Amazon and added several tag lines to my own book to see if people would take notice and possibly want to buy my book or maybe add it to one of the categories.


Why would you want to create a best seller on Amazon when all too often they have bullied reviewers and authors, deleted reviews for no reason and even taken books off sale for minor infractions that we never knew we committed. As simple as being wrongly accused of getting paid for writing your reviews when you never take a penny. Did you know that your reviews are their property and you cannot reprint or repost them in their entirety anywhere else? Did you know that you can post your review but no hyperlinks or any URL’s to promote anything else or even create an ad for your book or title when posting any review? The author brilliantly explains the highlights related to the many complaints both authors and reviewers have states against Amazon.


First, reviews have been deleted for no reason. One author was accused of creating and posting a review for her own book. Copyright laws and their statement in their reviewer’s guidelines elaborate on why you cannot post your review anywhere else and the copyright laws that they say are quite legal. The author also includes a valuable resource written by Dana Lynn Smith titled How to Get Your Book Reviewed which will guide you through the regulations imposed by Amazon and prevent you from falling prey to the pitfalls. Everyone should Google Amazon’s review policies in order to up on the current information. To learn more about this and read the excerpt the author has shared read pages 19-20 in this great book.


Chapters three and four provide information dealing with marketing plans and why authors post on Amazon when they can get higher royalties elsewhere. Explaining in Chapter four the advantages for self published authors, the reasons by publishing with Create Space may be the way to go and the royalty policy plus how Amazon tallies the sales so that you might see your book listed as one of the Top 100 recommended titles. But, there are disadvantages she sites fro form traditionally published authors which you can read on pages 25-26 as some traditional publishers do not allow authors to choose the categories for their books. She concludes the chapter with how some authors under contract already enjoy many of these freedoms and she list resources to help you including Digi-Tall- Media to help distribute and produce most formats including print and electronic. The author states she retains the book rights in every detail and this sounds like something this author and reviewer just might look into even further. There is a lot more included in this chapter including the definition of co-publishing and Indie publishing.


How does tagging result in top ranking at tag communities, how can you easily rank in the reader’s choice top rated list and nowhere else can you earn multiple category bestseller status so easily so read Chapter five and learn the hidden secrets that are right in front of you to become a bestselling author. Followed by Chapter six: Kindle Book Categories are not just search engines. Believe it or not they are your paths to becoming a best selling author. Here is how:

I actually used the link on page 35 and joined the site and created by own bundles and links. But, the Kindle Direct Publishing does not allow you to choose more than two categories so you need to thin about it before you decide which ones your book fits in. Without the right categories the author states you may never get there. Now, if you read Chapter 7 you will understand the definition of a category and how they are tallied. There is no answer to how your book is chosen to become a best seller and how it is tallied. The author states that Amazon does not count sales from day one for any of their sales rankings. Instead, they choose daily/hourly slices and count up the sales make during that period. To learn more you need to read the chapter for yourself to learn the many secrets unveiled by the author for yourself. Next and definitely primary to your success is reading, as I did several times, Chapter 8 to learn which categories to pick and how to choose the right ones for your book. Remember you can only choose two so you must choose wisely. For a Kindle eBook you choose the categories at the time of publication through your chosen publisher. The categories will then transfer over to the Kindle Bookstore. Important note: this only applies to the Kindle version in Chapter 11 the author will explain how to choose the categories for print copies. Status changes momentarily and categories are only listed as they are shown on page 45 when your book has reached or ranked in the top 100 sales of any category. Next Chapter 9 will help you decide whether to publish in Amazon Print, Kind or mobile devices. The serious pros and cons of both are discussed and the value of publishing in Kindle is stated and the value of print too. You decide for yourself.


Chapter Ten is where you want to be and that is in Amazon’s Print Bookstore too as a bestseller. This chapter goes into detail how to contact Amazon and the links you need in order to create your own categories and up your sales. If you do not have the categories listed you cannot compete for sales rankings at Amazon. This is one chapter you need to pay close attention to. I DID!


Chapter 11 handles how to decide on what print categories you can choose from. The author discusses how she chose the categories for one of her books and she takes you through the entire process step by step. What more can you ask for? Chapter 12 discusses the other Amazon lists you may qualify for and Chapter 13 Bonus Pages at Companion Sites. I found this information at


Finally, Chapter 14 discusses contests that you can enter and 15 subscribe now which include the information about Promotions a la Carte Blog and much more. The final chapters are short but vital to your success. Chapter 16 includes a discussion page and where to find the links, 17 how to contact Aggie, 18 recommended reading and sites and finally the author’s bio and information about her.


This is one 75 page book filled with important information that is easily understood, explained, and will definitely guide you right to the best seller’s list. So, read what our author wants to share with you, the author and learn the secrets behind creating a best seller on Amazon. Once again Aggie Villanueva has outdone herself as she did when she wrote this great reference guide for writings titled: The Rewritten Word. So, what are you waiting for? Get a copy of this book and start reading and get on your road to bestseller success.
