What are author tools?

Author tools are publishing or book marketing tools that help authors self publish their books appropriately and also help them market or sell their books.

The new free author tools from the KindlePreneur team (and the old tools) are designed to help authors who self-publish and sell their ebooks on Amazon. The KindlePreneur blog project is set up specifically for authors on Amazon KDP.

What is Amazon followers number?

Amazon followers number is the number of followers you have on Amazon.

After many years of waiting, Amazon finally allowed authors to see how many followers they have.

Amazon followers are people that Amazon will automatically email whenever you release new books. These are usually people who have the privilege of getting to know about your new book title.

They are also the people who will likely be the first set of people to buy your new book. With this fact, I believe every author on Amazon would love to have a large number of followers on Amazon.


Amazon followers number and automatic marketing

An average author who wants to sell more books on Amazon should be interested in any automatic marketing strategy from Amazon and should be able to capitalize on it.

Sending emails about your new book to your Amazon followers is one of these automatic marketing strategies from Amazon.
