Tips: Increase Your Book Reviews

Reviews are the ๐Œ๐Ž๐’๐“ important part of being successful. We all know the dream of wanting to see that yellow banner on Amazon or receiving your very first “USA Today Bestseller” tag.

But to get there, it’s essential to have lots of reviews coming in for your books. Here are some of the ๐“๐Ž๐ resources for getting your books in front of as many people as you can.

Keep in mind, these are not the only ways to reach people, but are some amazing resources to help you increase your reach. Being active on social media and connecting directly with your intended audience is by far the most effective way, but these are some little stepping stones to help you build relationships with other authors and reach more people!
