Featuring on Amazon.com - Kindle Daily & Monthly Deals
If you’re in the US market, you can be part of the Kindle Daily & Monthly Deals program.
- To qualify, a book must have at least 10 customer reviews on Amazon.com and a rating of 3.8 stars or higher. The titles must also be in the "Enhanced" pricing model.
- We can submit titles monthly according to a marketing calendar.
- We submit titles that match the requirements; then Amazon selects the titles. The program is very competitive and books that already have good ratings are at an advantage.
To be notified about these opportunities, please enable the newsletter under your profile -- we tell you about deadlines, the marketing calendar, and more.
How does it work?
- To participate, you have to have your book available on Amazon through our account. You'll also need to set a discounted price.
- We won't know in advance whether the book gets selected or the discounting happens.
- Selected books will be displayed on Kindle devices, and in a specific section of the Amazon Kindle store.
AI Improved Amazon Ads tool
Don’t forget about our built-in marketing tool to easily manage Amazon’s Sponsored Products ads directly from your PublishDrive dashboard. It uses AI to identify the most relevant products to target. Optimize your ads with four options:
- Automatic targeting - Suggested for beginners. With this option, Amazon matches the ad with relevant keywords and products that are similar to the book being advertised.
- Manual Keyword Targeting - Suggested for advanced users. You can handpick the keywords you want to target.
- Product Targeting - Suggested for advanced users. Target specific products to refine your campaign.
- Negative Keywords - Suggested for advanced users. Exclude keywords to prevent irrelevant traffic from driving up costs.
Be sure to download the keyword reports to get a summary and daily view of your ad performance. See our step-by-step guide.
