From the beginning basics through your nitty-gritty questions, we'll cover all aspects of metadata related to your book on Amazon. Intended for authors interested in self-publishing (or in hybrid publishing where you have access to your book details), we'll start with the most basic stuff:

  • Meta-whatta? What is it?
  • Where is it?
  • Why does it matter?

Then we'll dive into the ways you can improve upon all aspects of your book's metadata, including:

  • Comp titles specific to Amazon
  • Title & Subtitle
  • Subcategories/BISACs
  • Keywords
  • On-screen descriptive fields
  • Book Cover
  • Additional Images
  • Amazon Author Page
  • Which metadata matter most
  • And more!

Whether you access your book via Amazon KDP, Ingram Lightning Source, or another platform, we'll be targeting Amazon's search engine specifically because... Well, you want to sell more books, right? Sign up now to reserve your spot!
