I’m trying something new today, something that’s been on my to do list for over a year! I’ve decided today is the day to set up universal links for my book and author page on amazon. I’m running a kindle countdown deal right now, so I was stressing about getting the right book links into my tweets. So I googled it.
It was so easy, I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to work this out. Here are my links if you want to check them out.
How to do it yourself:
1. Go to booklinker
2. Paste in the URL of your book
3. Hit the button create universal link.
4. You need to give it a short name and save it.
5. Register the link as yours.
It all happened so quickly, I think I’ve covered every step. I don’t think you can go wrong anyway.
Now when you sign in to Booklink and look at Your Book Links, it shows all the clicks in each country.
I’m assuming the links work. I’ve tested and they seem ok for the UK, but maybe one or two of you bloggers can test it out for me and see if you are taken to your correct country. Let me know in the comments if you have time. Thank you!
By the way, here’s the site that led me to this amazingly simple discovery – Kindlepreneur. There looks like lots of articles to help the self published author here, so I will definitely be returning to browse this site.
Now it’s time to update my blog and email signature with these quick links – if I could only remember how to do it. Time for another google search. I’m on a roll this morning!
