Tell Me Something Tuesday: Cross Posting Reviews on Amazon

Tell Me Something Tuesday: Cross Posting Reviews on Amazon brought to you by Rainy Day Ramblings

This week we are talking about cross posting reviews on Amazon, well for me I do cross post to Amazon. I also cross post on several other platforms like Kobo, Barnes & Nobles, Goodreads, Riffle, BookBub, BookLikes and my blog Angel’s Guilty Pleasures.  

Now I don’t post my reviews to all those sites ASAP. I will take a day and go through my fold labeled Book Reviews I Need Post and post all those reviews to Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Novels, Riffle, and BookBub. Their are so may sites to share reviews on, taking a day to cross post them is the best option for me and less time consuming. 

For my reviews they will first feature on Goodreads. I love the Goodreads site. Really love it!! I site down write up my review and then post it to Goodreads at the same time. So, my review will show up their well before it’s featured on my blog or any other site. If you want to see my reviews FIRST then Goodreads is the best place to follow or friend me.

Follow/Friend on Goodreads

Next, I’ll schedule on my calendar the day that my review will feature on the blog, sometimes it ends up being a month later. Ya, I know it’s a long time, but I also feature fun Discussion Posts, Food Posts, Tours, and so on. I don’t like to have to much on one day. I want to be able to comment back and I’m a full time mother/home maker, so I’ve got other things to do besides just blog. Once the post is live on my blog I will cross post that day to BookLikes. BookLikes is another type of blogging platform.

BookBub: I am just now working on cross post all my reviews to the site. I didn’t know until recently that you could post your review. I think it’s became a new feature or maybe it’s always been their, but now I’m working on putting up all my reviews to the site.

You can follow me on BookBub

Then we have all the retail sites and their are a lot of those. I only post to Amazon, B&N, and Kobo. Their is also GooglePlay, iBooks, and others. I’m not on those sites, so I don’t share their. 

I almost forgot. The LIBRARY. Yes, the library’s websites, at lest most, have a way of sharing your reviews on books, audios, movies, etc… I will sometimes share their, but not regularly. 

As you can see I try to get my reviews out their and share them almost everyplace I can. I like what I do. I LOVE supporting authors and as long as I love it, I will continue to support and share. 

 

Now how about you?
Do you cross post to Amazon? How about other sites?

Great post and topic! I do cross post my reviews to Goodreads, Amazon, and B and N. I also post them on my blog. I have not posted them to the other sites you mentioned- but I don’t really know anything about those sites- so thanks for sharing. 🙂

My daughter loves Goodreads. She says it’s her new addiction. I haven’t really cross-posted on any other sites besides Barnes and Noble at the request of a publisher. I would love to do some guest posts though sometime.

Have a great weekend! Thanks for sharing your thoughts. #GetSocial17

Wow that is a lot of cross posting! I didn’t know you could post to bookbub now! Very cool. I post on my blog and then it automatically posts to goodreads for me. Then I copy/paste my reviews into Amazon and iBooks (those are the only 2 I ever use!)
Thanks for the friend invite on goodreads by the way! How in the heck were we not already friends on there?!?!? I do love that site.

Whew that’s a lot of cross posting! I do Goodreads and Amazon. Goodreads usually before release as I finish the blog posts. Then Amazon as I can 🙂

I used to cross post to Amazon. But I used to review a lot of products that manufacturers sent me for free in exchange for a review on Amazon. Well, a few months ago Amazon changed their TOS and you can no longer post reviews on there if you got it for free. I had over 600 reviews on Amazon and after they changed their TOS…a lot of my book reviews and product reviews were deleted. So I no longer post reviews on Amazon. Now the only place I post reviews is on my blog.

Here’s the thing, crossposting takes A LOT of time. A least for me it does, especially with all the rules you gotta follow. That said, I always crosspost to Amazon and GoodReads. Of course on NetGalley/Edelweiss if that’s where I got the book. I do state in my review policy that I can post on additional sites upon request but I figure that with Amazon and GoodReads being the big ones that’s good enough. I’ve had trouble posting on Barnes and Noble so I stopped doing it there. I am seeing that BookBub is starting to become a thing so… Read more »

I do cross post but not everywhere. It’s usually my blog, Goodreads, and Amazon. Sometimes B&N–I don’t really like their interface and it’s kind of a pain to submit a review on their site. Great topic.

I read that cross posting can’t really hurt your CEO and if it does it’s just a tiny bit because google tries To give the searcher a variety of content. If someone performs a search, they won’t want to get 5 identical results; they want different content.I just thought I’d let you know that your read more option is not expanding the blog post. I only got to see more of your post after clicking on the comment section. I’m stopping by from blog social event.

I don’t really do it I confess unless it’s really asked

I crosspost my reviews, but there are only a couple I do the crosspost all the time. I am like you and do my GR post first then I send my blog review to whichever blog it is for and then I post to NetGalley if I got the book from there as well as Amazon and B&N. Our library does not have an online way to send them a review for the book though when I use Overdrive I can. I didn’t know about Bookbub. I’ll have to check that out.

I post to Goodreads and Amazon. I didn’t realize you could post to Bookbub. I might start doing that. I wanted to start posting to other places but I just haven’t found the time lately.

I think cross posting is important because not everyone shops/looks up books on the same site. I never thought about reviewing on my library’s website though. I will have to keep an eye out for that option next time.

You are awesome to take the time to post to all those sites, and I am happy that you haven’t had a negative experience. Maybe it’s getting better. I didn’t think about posting to my library. I am constantly checking out books from there. I should post reviews. Thanks for doing TMST this week!

I actually only post on Amazon.ca and Amazon.com. I do follow you tough on all of the above. However, i like this site the best and your page on Facebook.

I do cross post to Goodreads. That’s easy with my UBB plugin, but Amazon usually takes me a little longer. I’m also nervous about posting review titles on Amazon because I’ve heard of so many people’s accounts getting locked and they can’t review. Those are the two main places I review, oh and Netgalley. I really need to get in the habit of the other retailers. I get so distracted when I review at Amazon, I have a huge list of things I need to review so I end up doing a bunch for other products while I’m there. I… Read more »
