Mini-Quiz: Sequence Leading to a Book Sale

by Ron Kurtus (22 June 2014)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. What do you usually look for on bookstore shelves?

The price of a book

A good title on the spine or front cover

The table of contents

2. Why must the title stand out for online sales?

It must be readable on a small image of the book cover

To make sure you are not looking at a different book

Because you only see the spine online

3. How important are recommendations and reviews for an online sale?

Most people ignore reviews, because they are often untrue

They are only valid if in the newspaper

They can be the tipping point on whether the purchase is made

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Self-Publishing. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
