We’re back for another Amazon update! Recently it’s been discovered that if you’re only choosing categories from the KDP dashboard you might end up with a category that doesn’t even exist.
Selecting the correct retail category or genre for your book is a crucial decision, and it holds significant importance for several reasons:
- Targeted Audience Reach
- Visibility on Retail Platforms
- Competitive Positioning
- Reader Expectations
- Marketing and Promotions
- Awards and Recognition
- Publishing Industry Insights
So clearly, choosing the correct retail category or genre for your book is a strategic decision that impacts its discoverability, sales potential, and overall success in the market. It’s an essential aspect of effective book positioning and marketing.
Don’t end up with an option that isn’t serving you!
Our goal for this episode is to educate ya’ll on how this potentially affects your shot at a bestseller, and how to double-check your work and avoid this potential landmine in the future.
