If you’ve read the first post on How to Set Up Readerlinks, it’s now time to dig a little deeper. Let me introduce you to one of the most amazing features of Readerlinks and also one that a lot of authors struggle with in the beginning: core links.
Core links are links that are automatically created by Readerlinks as soon as you add a new book. Let’s say you’re releasing a book a week from now, but the preorder is already up. Just add the book to Readerlinks, fill out the ASIN, add it to a series where relevant, and you’ll have a whole list of links automatically created by the system. Check back in the first post in this series on how to do this, if you’re unsure.
Now, you may wonder why you’d need more than one link? After all, they all lead to the same Amazon page, right? Not necessarily, for example if you also want to link to your paperback or an audio book, but even so, you’ll want these different links so you can see which one is clicked the most…and this which marketing tool is most effective.
