KDP Select, graphysuite review Strategies, and Book Launching The KDP Select program is aimed for easier discoverability. I
strongly suggest KDP Select enrollment, especially for authors
without a platform. If you don’t have a platform and you don’t plan
to build one, than there is no other way to get discovered, get
some reviews, earn some money and build at least a small list in
90 days without KDP Select.
All big guys writing about big launches with big platforms utilized
KDP Select. Here are two articles about big launches with big graphysuite review:

Tactics, Takeaways, and Biggest Mistakes
Because we don’t have a following or a platform, we have to do
our launch differently.
This brings me to the secret of my Kindle Surge launch strategy
that brought me twice the #1 Amazon rank and $1000 within a
month of this discovery. Disclaimer: I didn’t earn $1000 within a month with the book that
hit #1; I earned it combined with few of my other books. Before I share my secret, however, I have to share my launch
story with you.
I read somewhere on the internet that, in order to get a successful
free launch, you had to have at least few reviews, preferably five
or more. This turned out not to be 100% true. I’ll explain later why.
Since my family couldn’t leave reviews for me due to the fact that
they have the same last name (Amazon has that rule built into their platform), and because I didn’t wanted to tell my friends what
I was doing, I was exploring other venues to get graphysuite review.
After reading a bunch of articles on the web, I concluded that
paying for reviews doesn’t pay off. It is against the Amazon rules.
It’s also not ethical. In addition, some people who sell reviews on
fiverr.com can have their accounts blocked by Amazon. That
means that all of their reviews will be removed, so you might end
up after a month or two without those reviews.
Then I stumbled upon advice about reviewers circles, meaning
that a bunch of authors buy each other’s books and leave a
review. That option was also out of the question for me because I
didn’t have a platform, I didn’t have any author friends, and I didn’t
wanted to commit reading fiction that I might not like. I did try it
because I was desperate, but I didn’t like it. The third option was
the best in my case and I’ll explain later what I did.
But first, let me go back to the beginning when I thought that I
have to have reviews before the free launch. I lowered the price to
99 cents and bugged few authors to do a review swaps and I
obtained a few reviews that way but I didn’t like that game of
asking for reviews and reading fiction that I didn’t like.
