How do you skyrocket your book sales without a bigger platform, email list, paid traffic, or PR?

It starts by understanding how your readers buy books today, and how you can reach them (without a huge marketing budget).

I've found something that can show you how.

Bestseller Ranking Pro provides authors and publishers with live data on every single bestseller list on Amazon for eBooks and physical books (all 19,669 of them and counting), as well as advanced video trainings on how to maximize your sales and sales rankings on Amazon.

Check it out here:

If you haven't met Tom Corson-Knowles yet, the author who created Bestseller Ranking Pro, I think you'll find his story inspiring.

Like most authors who have been in the game for years, the only signs of interest Tom got from publishers were rejection letters. After six years of trying to get a traditional publishing deal, he finally decided to self publish his first book on Kindle in February, 2012.

It was a life-changing decision.

Just twelve months after publishing that first book, he had his first $12,000+ month from Kindle ebook royalties alone!

You can learn how in this video. These strategies have also helped him and his clients become #1 Amazon bestselling authors.

If you're going to write, publish or promote a book this year, you need to see this:
