How to Craft Attention-grabbing Titles for Your Kindle Books

Making Your Books Stand Out

How to Craft Attention Titles for Amazon KDP Books

Today I did a wonderful podcast on how you can make the most of your writing career by crafting outstanding titles for your kindle books. I believe that this is one of the struggles so many of us face as authors.

Nevertheless, if you take the time to listen to my podcast series and read the articles I've provided, this should be a no-brainer for you.

You can watch the podcast video below.

So, just to highlight a few things we talked about during the podcast. First, it's important to be as clear as possible when giving your book a title. You know, sometimes it appears to me that there's something that tells most authors they should try to impress readers with some extra creativity.

Yes, your creativity is important, don't be mistaken. But it's important you know that your readers aren't looking for some high-sounding stuff in your book title. They are looking for something they can relate to.

In essence, it's better to be as clear as possible than to be as creative as possible. If you are putting up a Mandala Colouring Book for people who are angry and tensed, there's nothing wrong with titling it, "120 Floral Mandalas for Annoyed People." And a subtitle, "A Floral Mandala Colouring Book for Annoyed People to Calm Down and Relax."

You think the annoyed people don't know themselves? Oh man, they do. Once they see your book, they know who you wrote it for, and they will go for it.

Okay, imagine if you were putting up a daily planner journal and you titled it, "Can't Remember it Meinnn! Gotta Write it Down!" You really think it won't sell? Oh no! The guys who know what you're talking about will come online and go right straight to your book.

That's the importance of clarity with titles. Whatever you do or not do, be the best at clarity with your titles.

Something else we talked about in the podcast is creating curious titles. As in, let your book titles cause the reader to immediately click to check what it's all about.

When you use terms like, "Unveiling" or "Forbidden Secrets" as mentioned in the podcast, you leave your reader wondering what's in it for them. The idea here is to have a level of intrigue in your book titles. Don't leave your titles plainly plain. That's not a good representation of your content.

You took out time to write this book. Or, you have a good idea of what you want to pen down. But it's not ultimately for you. It's for a certain group of people. So, do your best to title it in such a way that the people you wrote it for can find it.

If you might want to study this further, you can read the well-detailed article I have written, "7 Steps to Crafting an Irresistible Kindle Book Titles."

Beyond that, for authors whose books aren't performing properly on the Amazon Kindle marketplace, or new authors who would want to get the best out of their writing labours, I have written a full fledged book on "How to Craft Irresistible Kindle Book Titles." You can read a chapter of that book HERE.

Earlier on, I made a short video on how numbers and benefits can greatly facilitate the performance of your book titles on Amazon Kindle. I believe that short explanation changed a lot of things for some authors. You can watch that video below.

If you have found any benefits after listening to the podcast or watching this video, then you'll sure benefit more from the article on how to craft irresistible Kindle book titles. Try and read it anytime you're able.

Okay guys, that's about it. Please, remember to subscribe and give me some encouragement and feedbacks. Stay well, and keep publishing.
