Publisher Rocket: A Tool for Every Author
What is Publisher Rocket?
Publisher Rocket was created by Dave Chesson to help authors free up valuable writing time by taking the hours of research and guesswork out of creating your keywords lists. Publisher Rocket has four main features: keywords, competitors, categories, and AMS Keywords for ads.
When uploading your book to Amazon, you have the option to add seven keywords. You don’t want to add random words that may or may not direct sales of your book. That would be a waste of time and resources. Publisher Rocket helps narrow down your keywords to those that are drawing in buyers, are relevant to your work, and that will help you sell your book! Isn’t that what we all want to do? Drive sales? You want keywords that are being searched for, but that are also not flooded with competition!
With this feature, you can look at the first 10 books that rank with a certain phrase or keyword. This allows you to see how books that are comparable to yours are doing. Why is this important? Seeing what is working, and well, allows you to make sure you are giving your book the best start it can have. You want your Title, Blurb, Cover, Keywords etc all working toward one goal, getting your book into the hands of your target reader. By having access to what is working and being able to make changes to be sure your book is to market, you are already setting yourself up for success.
This feature allows you to narrow down the categories that would be the best fit for your work. By just entering keywords/phrases, you can have a whole list of potential categories at your fingertips. Not only will you know which categories best fit your book, but you will be able to see how many books you would need to sell to hit bestseller or fall into the top 10 list.
By starting with just a few keywords you think might drive people to your book, you can easily collect a list of 2-300 keywords to target with your Amazon Ads. You not only get a list of keywords, but authors, titles, and ISBNs that relate to your keyword search. You can export this list into an excel spreadsheet and upload it directly into Publisher Rocket saving yourself valuable time.
What I found very helpful were all the tutorials that you can access free through the Publisher Rocket program. These tutorials will walk you through each feature step by step, and they don’t disappear.
The ONE-TIME fee of $97 allows you to have lifetime access to the program and any updates.
Is it worth it? Absolutely, if you are anything like me, you don’t want to waste time reinventing the wheel. Why spend hours researching keywords, competitors, categories, and AMS target keywords when you can use a program that does the hard part for you?
