#5 – Hot and Trending at last!

Reprinted from Kathrin Lake’s blog with her permission.

I am on my LAST DAY OF KINDLE SCOUT CAMPAIGN and finally achieved the Hot & Trending List! Phew!

In case you don’t know, this is what it looks like (you can click on the picture to take you there or use the link above):

 

Why did I get into the Hot & Trending now?

Two things I attribute to getting into H&T.

#1) Help from my mentor Martin Crosbie , already mentioned in previous posts. He remembered a closed site on Facebook that would be helpful, so posted it there. Big jump into H&T at that point.  It really helps to have people with influence who believe in you, especially ones with big networks and degrees in marketing. Dude, I owe you lunch/brunch/dinner etc.  You always make me realize that I have a lot more to learn about marketing books.

#2) The other factor is one I mentioned before and learned on kboards , that was that people troll Kindle Scout for new books but wait until the last few days on a campaign to nominate so they only have to wait a few days for their nomination to refill. They only have three nominations so if they are always nominating people at the end of campaigns, they can get more free books rather than waiting 30 days if they nominate at the beginning of a campaign.

Frankly, I believe it is number one that was the catalyst factor and number two is a by-product as the trollers only nominate people they think will win so they can get scout points (Scout Leadership Board) and also get your book and potentially other books free.

I will let you know if I received a contract or not, and in either case, take you through the numbers at the end of the campaign.  Also, I will go through all of what I learned too. What I would do again, what I wouldn’t do again, as well as what I should have done and didn’t (or should have done much sooner). In any case, my next campaign will be better!

Signing off!
