Promoting my Amazon Books again

A few months back I was actively promoting my Amazon Books (Quotes Book and YouTube earning Book) using various ad Campaigns including Amazon's AMS ads, Google Ad Words, Reddit Ads, Facebook Ads, Goodreads Giveaway, LinkedIn Ads and Bookbub ads. But they are not much useful for my Books.  So, I stopped promoting my Books. Among all these Ad platforms, Amazon's AMS was performing better than others. But still, it was not making a profit.

A few days back, I have decided to promote my Book again.  Instead of spending all my time and money in many ad platforms, I have decided to stick with one particular advertising platform still I start making a profit from Book Sales.

As Amazon's AMS was performing better than others, I decided to start with AMS ads. I noticed that Amazon renamed AMS into "Amazon Advertising", and my previous campaigns were there. I just created new campaigns by copying the existing campaigns and started running with a small budget. I am planning to carefully tweak the ads continuously to make them profitable, and once after start earning money from Book Sales, I am planning to increase the Ad budget step by step.

 And, I have noticed that Amazon's new Advertising interface having many new useful features comparing to the previous AMS. Especially I like the option to see the reports for the date range. But still, the ACOS metric is not much useful. Because it is calculated based on sales price instead of the royalty amount.

I am exploring various options to improve Ad performance. If you have tried Amazon Advertising for promoting your Book, share your suggestions based on your experience through the comments.

Relaunching RtoZ.Org as Emerging Technology News Website.

Around 8 years back, I have started a website RtoZ.Org to publish Social Media News.

And then I realized that there were a lot of Social Media News sites available and they were supported with huge funding and a lot of resources. It made me think that competing with them won't be a good idea. So, I switched my focus to develop my YouTube Channel which was growing very fast.

But a few months back, ads were disabled on my YouTube Channel. When I was looking for alternative earning ways, I have decided to make use of the domain name RtoZ.Org which is easy to remember and type.

While running my YouTube Channel, I have noticed that there is a huge demand for publishing news about Emerging Technologies nanotechnology, 3D printing, Robots, AI and CRISPR Gene Editing. Because these things are growing very fast and they are going to entirely change our Life in the coming years. But comparatively, there were only a few websites available to report news about them. i-e It is having huge demand and low competition. Apart from that, it is having huge earning potential.


And therefore, I made the decision of using RtoZ.Org as a News Website giving news about Emerging Technologies.

Challenges in Developing and Testing PHP Script for Automatic Resume Submission

In this post I would like to share my experience of creating and testing a php/MySQL script for posting candidate resume automatically to a lot of U.S Job sites.

i-e If a job seeker enters his Resume details in one place, the script will automatically create User Accounts in many U.S job sites for him, and it will automatically post his Resume details in all of these Job Sites.

Actually we made this script many years back. Though we are successful in creating the script, we found difficulty in marketing it. So, we dropped that project.

If you want me to develop any similar challenging scripts, you can read this post and contact me rajamanickam.a@gmail.com

This Kind of Script development is NOT an easy task. It involves lot of complexities. And, we haven’t started doing it properly. Initially we did similar script for one particular customer as a custom development, and later we enhanced it further to bring this Automatic Resume posting script.

Since we were a small Team, we just did Adhoc Testing only.

The important Steps involved in this kind of script development are,
