Today in the third daily installment of my vlog series, I have discussed the importance of having a completed Amazon author page and ensuring that your book and products are available on your own website.
Amazon Author Page
I am very happy to have uploaded the WordPress RSS generator plug-in on all three of my sites, copying and pasting the codes onto the Amazon Author page and seeing all of my blog posts uploaded. I am not a website designer or programmer yet I am brimming with confidence of my DIY work!
Having Your Book and Products on Your Site
You have to be in control of yourself. Even though my book is available on Amazon, I have to be in control of my own brand. It is essential that I am independent of any online portal. A great example of being dependent is KatchHQ. This site used to catch all of your livestream videos. People used it for Periscope. However, when Periscope changed its API, this move increase Katch’s operating costs. The company could not secure additional financing so it was forced to close yesterday, May 4th. Although Amazon is the number 1 online retailer, you still have to have your own site and online store.
