Last week I introduced my subscribers to a new product that can help authors market their print books and ebooks on Amazon—AKBooster, Amazon-specific market research software by Abhi Dwivedi & Ben Murray. Because the developers come from the internet marketing community, and not the indie author world, a lot of people who checked out the software were confused by the way the product was being sold.
I asked Ben Murray to explain more fully exactly what this software can do, and the way it can help indie authors market their books more effectively on the world’s biggest retail site for book sales. Here’s his report.
With ebook sales up around 4000% percent since 2004 and technological advances like Amazon’s Kindle Cloud Reader, it’s clear that ebook and independent publishing is the way of the future, especially through Amazon’s KDP platform.
If you have published to Kindle before, you know what a fantastic opportunity this is to get your name and story out to the world. Getting even more exposure sharing your story was the idea behind the creation of the new AK Booster Pro software, a new tool that helps independent authors get the most out of self publishing their books.
So what exactly is this AK Booster Pro?
This Adobe software (Mac and PC enabled) is broken into three sections. A ‘Niche Finder’ section, a ‘Submitter’ section and finally, a ‘Reviewer’ section.
First, the ‘Niche Finder’ allows users to find hot niches and keywords to write their books by extracting and presenting keywords Amazon Kindle customers are actually typing in. The ‘rank’ button organizes them by popularity and by typing in a seed keyword like ‘vegetarian,’ AK Booster is able to drill into untapped topics like ‘vegetarian slow cookers’ that people are searching for, but have not written about yet.
When you find an interesting keyword, switch to the ‘Get Scores’ section to see how profitable and how in demand that keyword idea could be. The demand score shows how many users are searching for this topic, the competition shows how competitive this idea is, and finally the overall score shows you how easy it is to rank and make money from this idea.
The ‘Submitter’ section contains the largest number of free and paid sites to advertise and submit your book to during its KDP select free days. These include popular Kindle book sites like PixelofInk.com or KindleNationDaily.com. To submit your book, just click on the picture, fill out your info, and away your book goes.
Finally, the ‘Reviewer’ section finds potential people to review your book who have left a review or are interested in your book’s subject. You can search for reviewers on Amazon, GoodReads, and Facebook. Simply type in your book topic keyword and click search. AK Booster will do the rest and find you interested reviewers in your niche along with their contact information.

The AKBooster Sales Process Explained
If you’re interested in finding out more about the AKBooster software, be advised that the process is not as simple as downloading a Word template from our template site. In fact, there are a number of steps to go through. There’s nothing complicated or difficult, but I think it’s worthwhile layout out the process so you’re not surprised when you click the AKBooster link.
- The AK Booster Link goes to a page where you can choose a single user or multi user license, and each has a Buy button
- The Buy Button will take you to a standard Paypal screen where you’ll make your payment.
- You’ll receive an email with a link to JVZoo to log in to access your purchase.
- Once you log in JVZoo, it links you to the AKBooster WordPress site, where you’ll need to log in.
- Finally, click a link to get the download page. Whew, you’re done.
This process differs, as I said, from a straight pay-and-download format, but it’s really not that difficult. If you think this software can help you market your books more effectively, go ahead and check it out here: AKBooster Market Research Software
Note: If you are not comfortable buying or downloading software from the internet, or dealing with a process where you have to create logins, you may be uncomfortable with the AKBooster product delivery system. However, if you’re willing to persevere, you could have a really powerful tool that will help you expand the discoverability of your books and achieve higher sales. And during its introduction, AKBooster Pro is available at a huge discount. So if this appeals to you, check it out before Tuesday night: AKBooster Pro.
