Getting the most of Amazon Listmania

How to Maximize Amazon’s Listmania

Most everyone knows about Amazon’s Listmania option.  But do you know how to get the best most out of it?

The goal: to have your book be on a list frequently provided to Amazon customers as they search for their favorite books.

What do I mean by this?

Let’s take a look at an example.  In the juvenile fiction world, Diary of a Wimpy Kid is extremely successful.  If I search on this book, the following appears on Amazon.


Notice on the left of the page the two Listmania! lists featured.

If either of these were your list with your book in the list, it would likely get a lot of visibility. Your book may even appear here as well.

So the key is to identify other more popular books in the same genre as your book and populate your listmania list with these books as well as your own.

Every time one of these other books is searched on, your list may appear in the side panel just like the example shown.

In order to increase the likelihood of your list showing up during one of these searches versus someone else’s list having the same book in it, I’ve set up the “Tag My Listmania” page.  Check it out!
