The SEO Author [Part 2] one of the most SUCCESSFUL methods to ACE AMAZON and your book SALES! With@ErocZ of Zbooks.co
How the **F** do they do it? Back-ends, SEO, WTF is that?! Some authors just seem to EFFORTLESSLY make TONS of money on Amazon! "SEEM" is the keyword here. There is A LOT of effort going in to these sales. What you don't see is all of the work they are doing on their websites/blogs. THE SEO AUTHOR use his blog or website to supply a constant stream of traffic to his book. The book can be anywhere: iTunes, Amazon, B&N, Kobo, you name it. It doesn't matter where your book is, when you have a website that is ranking high in the "SERP's" i.e. Google, you can funnel those viewers anywhere you want -- you can even sell your books ON YOUR BLOG directly! This is probably the most overlooked, and YET THE MOST POWERFUL method of all! Especially if you are publishing super niche books that just can't make it on Amazon--Then forget Amazon and sell them on YOUR own blog!

Zbooks Amazing Insights: Interview with Dr.Bernie Siegel
Dr.Bernie Siegel's resume and life experience is longer than Sigmund Freud's and Carl Jung's combined! It was an honor to interview him and ask him ANY questions I wanted. MIND BLOWING INSIGHTS! One of my favorite, just as an example: At the hospital radiology department, UNBEKNOWNST to the radiologist, the machine was not working. The radio-active element was NOT installed. The radiologist however treated people for ONE MONTH with the "empty" machine. They all improved as if they had been treated with a normal working machine!!! Listen in to this interview for one JAW DROPPER after another! *FAVORITE QUOTE* "Consciousness can be experienced as a universal field that affects us all, and studies by quantum physicists have verified this." *TRANSCRIPT:* http://www.befreud.com/ BOOKS MENTIONED: 1.) The Art of Healing - Dr.Bernie Siegel http://geni.us/ArtofHealing 2.) Life Paints its Own Span - Susan Bach http://geni.us/LifePaints 3.) The Secret World of Drawings - Gregg
