We’re always improving ReaderLinks. We want to use a tool that helps us free up time for writing and that gives us a mountain of tools to focus our marketing efforts.
So it’s with great pride that we announce the roll-out of two features, one much-requested and the other just for fun!
We now support Amazon KDP auto-scraping! This will allow you to open a separate tab, go to KDP’s bookshelf, click our ReaderLinks KDP Tool, and it will automagically send your sales data back to your account EVERY 15 MINUTES so you don’t have to upload your KDP data any more! If you leave it running while you go out, you can refresh your ReaderLinks home page from y
our phone and see updates throughout the day! To get the bookmarklet click on the gear in the upper-right of ReaderLinks, then select “ReaderLinks KDP Tool”, and follow the instructions!
We’ve also added a fun feature that challenges you to reach new levels. It’s the ReaderLinks Scale! It’s just for fun, but we find ourselves pushing to reach the next level You can set it by selecting the gear, then choosing “Pen Name Settings”, and you’ll find the scale option at the bottom of the page. Note that it only works on monthly values.
Do you have to have use rankings? Nope, not at all. It’s just there for those of us who like to challenge ourselves. Of course, if you want to use it to compete with your author buddies, well, who are we to stop you?
What else would you like to see in ReaderLinks? We’re always taking the pulse of our community on our Facebook page. If you’re an author, editor, publisher or PA/VA feel free to join us there!
May your revenue match your word count!
