4 Tips for Setting Up Your International Amazon Author Central Pages

Amazon InternationalBy Marcy Kennedy (@MarcyKennedy)

Last month, I walked you through the 6 Steps for Setting Up Your Amazon Author Page. In that post, I talked exclusively about your author profile on Amazon.com, but Amazon sells books all over the world. While setting up our author page on Amazon.com is the most important (because that’s where we’re likely to sell the most books), we shouldn’t overlook our author pages elsewhere.

You might be thinking, Why do I want to take the time to do that for non-English speaking countries?

The answer is simple. English is the most common second language in the world. Even if English isn’t the primary language of Germany or India or China, many people living in those countries still speak it, read it, or are trying to learn. Creating an author page on international sites gives us a leg up over authors who only bother to update their Amazon.com page.

Because you’ll want to add the same information as you did for your Amazon.com author page, I won’t go over all of that again. You can read my previous post for details. What I’m going to focus on in this post are the unique things to keep in mind when we’re updating our pages on the international sites.

6 Steps to a Professional Amazon Author Page

By Marcy Kennedy (@MarcyKennedy)

When you sign up for Kindle Direct Publishing to publish your book on Amazon, you’ll find almost everything you need from the menu at the top of the page. They make it easy for you to update your account information, add new books, and track your sales.

But one important piece of publishing on Amazon isn’t there—your author page.

Many authors make the mistake of leaving their page blank, but it’s a powerful tool for funneling readers to your social media sites where they can better connect with you and for letting them know about your books.

Today I’m going to walk you through where to set up your author page and what you should put on it.

Please join me at Janice Hardy’s Fiction University for the rest of this post about your Amazon Author Central page!
