Book Review Banzai: The Unknown Author’s Ultimate Guide to Getting Amazon Reviews
Jason B. Ladd takes you on a journey to get more reviews.
But are you up for the trip? Strap on your seatbelt, it’s a rough ride.
Jason B. Ladd’s “Book Review Banzai: The Unknown Author’s Ultimate Guide to Getting Amazon Reviews” combines some technical time-saving strategies so that you can scale a personal connection beyond just a one-email-at-a-time connection with readers–who will ideally become reviewers.
I can safely say that this is one of those techniques that is truly going to work … if you do the work. It’s also a little bit like “How fast do you have to go to outrun the lion? Faster than your friend.” This system is going to work for you if you do it–because most authors won’t. — Bradley Charbonneau
I’m going to give it to you straight: this is no magic bullet. It’s a process and a tactic that will work, but you’re going to have to put in the initial work to get there.
Wondering which “magic bullet” is going to work for you? I know which ones will work better: the ones you actually try.
I have personally used a similar technique and I have to admit: it works. There’s one big hurdle that many writers need to get over:
There are readers out there who genuinely want to read your books.
I know, it’s a shocker. But it’s true. So, how do you find them? How do you contact them? How do you get them your book? That’s what Jason shows you in the book. He also has a course to walk you through all of the steps if you’d like a more visual perspective and some hand-holding.
Is it magic? Nope. Will it happen overnight? Probably not. But will some hard work and attention to detail get you more reviews than you have now? Pretty much a guarantee.*
Is it worth your time? I don’t know, how much is your time worth? How important are reviews to you? How much do you want readers? I’d say it’s worth at least downloading the sample onto your Kindle and giving Jason at least a chance.
* I love “pretty much a guarantee” which means that there is no guarantee at all of course. Geez, you’d think I had a past life as a contract attorney!
