Frequently Asked Questions

BookBuzzr is primarily a suite of DIY (Do-It-Yourself) book marketing technologies. We provide a variety of book marketing and book promotion technologies.

As an author you need to think about only two activities:
  • Produce the highest quality content
  • Promote that content to your target audience
BookBuzzr takes care of most of the second activity. The BookBuzzr Book Tweeting feature tweets about your book in a creative, non-annoying manner to your Twitter followers. And it does this even on days when you can't get to your Twitter account.

Or consider the BookBuzzr Flipper and BookBuzzr Mini Widget which act as a much more engaging replacement for your book cover. Their pages flip like a real book and invite your readers to actually sample your book.

Absolutely. BookBuzzr does not sell books. It only helps you market your books. BookBuzzr complements your KDP promotions very nicely. For example, when you run a KDP Free Day, you can use our landing page widget to announce it to your site visitors.


You can get your book into the newsletter in the following ways:
  • If your BookBuzzr flipper views are among the top 10 for the previous month.
  • If your book full screen views are among the top for the previous month.
  • If your book page views (total number of pages viewed) are among the top 10 for the previous month.
Checking Amazon Sales Rank can be a major time waster for most authors. So we went ahead and developed an automated sales rank reporting tool which sends you an email only when your book's sales rank improves. We've been astounded by the number of authors who have adopted the BookBuzzr Amazon Alerts service. Please note that this service is available only to BookBuzzr DIY Pro subscribes (i.e. authors who have subscribed to BookBuzzr DIY Pro.)
We often hear queries from authors about how to use BookBuzzrs Book Tweeting technology to market books on Twitter. The idea is to help authors market their books on Twitter with a large degree of automation (and without annoying the followers of the authors.)

If you are a new or existing author on BookBuzzr, this blog post about how to automate marketing your book on Twitter with BookBuzzr (aka Book Tweeter) should help you add in your Twitter details and start marketing your book on Twitter.
