One of the requirements to get your kindle books noticed is to make sure the listing on Amazon is as good as you can make it. You need to make it really stand out. My advice is to add colour, bold, underline and images. For a recent children’s book I added some screenshots to highlight the illustrations in the book. You can see the result here:
Notice both the images and the Amazon orange for the titles?
There is a little known technique for adding images and fonts like this.
Amazon actually allows something called “encoded” HTML in a sales page. This might sound difficult but I have a free tool to make it happen.
All you need to do is log into the tool and then add the text for your sales page together with links to your images. The site will then automatically encode the sales page. You simply copy and paste this code into your Amazon sales page! It’s as easy as that.
