Topics Discussed

  • The lead domino of business publicity: writing a book
  • Using Amazon as a research tool
  • The benefit of hitting #1 on Amazon (outside of the pretty screenshot)
  • The logistics for getting your book up on Amazon

Key Takeaways

  • There are subcategories (beneath business, marketing or your umbrella category) that are very relevant to your niche and those are the categories where it’s manageable to hit #1 bestseller and be proud of doing so.
  • Select the subcategory where the #1 ranked book has a lower OVERALL Kindle ranking because it’s a less competitive category. This means you’ll likely need fewer sales to hit #1 than you would in a more competitive category.
