Got questions about the upcoming free, community event? Check out some of our most frequently asked questions below.
What is the 5-Day Amazon Ad Profit Challenge?
The 5-Day Amazon Ad Profit Challenge is a free, quarterly event hosted by Bryan Cohen and his Best Page Forward team. It’s jam-packed with lessons, live events, homework, and enthusiastic support staff ready to help you take the next step in your author career. If you want to take your first, or your next, steps with Amazon Ads, the Challenge is designed to meet you where you’re at and get you where you want to go!
What do I need to get started with the Challenge?
An internet connection and the desire to grow your author career are the only requirements. It would be best to have $5 a day buffer to spend on ads, though many don’t come close to spending that much. You’ll need the willingness to learn and an open mind to try something new. Plan some space in your calendar to watch the videos, do the work, and ask your questions.
Do I need to show up somewhere Live to watch these lessons?
The core lessons will arrive in your inbox to watch at your convenience. We also love our live events. They give us the opportunity to connect with you and answer your most burning questions in real time! We understand that you have a lot on your schedule, so we’re sure to record every minute to share with you. That means you can join us live, or watch at a time that works best for you. Either way, our support team is on hand to answer your questions when you need us.
How long are the videos?
We recommend setting aside 90 minutes to watch the videos and do the homework. There are six videos in total, spread out over the two weeks of the challenge.
What if I don’t have time to watch all of the videos?
The 5-Day Challenge lasts for just over two weeks, but many authors are balancing their day-job, families, and publishing. We know it can feel impossible to fit in one more thing. If you don’t have time to watch the videos, or prefer to learn by reading, each lesson comes with a written blog post conveniently located under the video.
What are Amazon Ads anyway?
With the massive collection of books available on Amazon, it can seem like an impossible feat to get your book in front of new readers. But it’s not as difficult as you might think. Amazon has created a system for advertising that allows any author to take advantage of key placements within the search results and book sales pages. By learning how this valuable tool works, you can ensure your book is served to its target readers.
How do I know if Amazon Ads will work for my book?
We know that Amazon ads can work for authors. We’ve tested and proven our system many times over, and we’re confident in what we teach. What we don’t know is if your book is optimized for Amazon Ads. Finding that answer is our first priority. As you work through the Challenge, you’ll be gathering the necessary data to tell us if your book is converting profitably or may need some tweaks. Either way, we’ll guide you on your next steps.
Can I do the Challenge if I’m not published yet?
Some authors find it helpful to go through the challenge before they’ve published their first book. The lessons, live Q&A’s, and general group chatter can help you form a solid plan for your own upcoming launch and marketing. We welcome observers and have no problem answering hypothetical questions.
I don’t use Facebook. Can I still participate?
Yes! While our Facebook group has traditionally been the social centre of the Challenge, we’ve recently expanded to a new Slack Workspace. More choice for you means we get even more opportunities to support you as you do the work. If you don’t already know and love Slack, our Facebook Group is still alive and thriving for your convenience.
Can I do the Challenge if I’m traditionally published?
We’ve had plenty of traditional and hybrid authors come through our doors. While there are some methods and tools that may work differently for you, we can help you get your traditionally published book in front of more readers
Can I take this Challenge if I’ve done other ads courses?
Absolutely! There are many great resources in the self publishing community, and we would never discourage an author from learning. We strive to offer an extensive, hands-on, and supportive event. We want to earn your trust and show you the limitless potential of your own creation.
Anything else I should know about the event?
For the Amazon Ad School team – aka the Ad Squad – the 5-Day Amazon Ad Profit Challenge is an event we greatly anticipate. The energy and sense of community is unbeatable, and we love sharing in your accomplishments. Whether you’re an emerging author or looking to breath new life into your current marketing plan, this free challenge could be just what you need to up-level your author career.
