Authors, are you giving away copies of your books to influential people and asking them to submit reviews at EzineArticles.com, the granddaddy of the article directory sites?
Heck, they don’t even have to be influential. If you publish an ezine, ask your readers to review one of your books. Bloggers, you can do the same. Speakers, how about asking your audiences to review your latest book?
Here are four reasons why you should be using this resource:
—Thousands of people search this huge website monthly, looking for articles on specific topics. If a review about your book is among them, it could lead to a sale.
—The website doesn’t want bad reviews that discourage people from buying a book.
- We will also not accept nasty book reviews that are designed to save a consumer from buying the book or seek to destroy or dilute the credibility of the author of the book. Those are better left for your blog and not in a syndicatable article.
- We will accept book reviews that mentions a negative or who the book might not be for, provided that’s not the theme of the book review. If you hated the book, we prefer to not see your book review here.
—It lets visitors subscribe to an RSS feed for books in certain genres. Bloggers, for example, might want to know about reviews in their area of expertise so they can share the information with their readers.
—It accepts reviews of ebooks.
EzineArticles.com, by the way, has recently expanded the “book reviews” niche to become a main category and added 44 new book review sub-categories.
