How to Write Descriptions That Sell Used Books on Amazon

Did you know that writing great descriptions of your used books can help them sell faster and for higher prices on Amazon?

Many Amazon sellers don’t realize this. Most just copy and paste the same vague description on all their used book listings. (Think about all the times you searched for a used book on Amazon, only to find a bland description stating the book “may or may not contain highlighting, underlining or notes”)

Some Amazon sellers don’t even bother to describe their book’s condition at all, leaving that entire section blank.

Yet by passing up the chance to spotlight key features of their books, these sellers are ignoring one of the easiest ways to make more money selling used books on Amazon.

By writing a great book description, you can:
• Tell customers what they want to know about your book
• Highlight special features about your book and online bookstore
• Make your used book’s flaws appear attractive to the right buyer
Attract customers who will pay higher prices for your books

Best of all, writing descriptions that sell used books can be quick and easy – if you have the resources I provide in this short, fast-paced guide.

After reading How to Write Descriptions That Sell Used Books on Amazon, you’ll know how to create a basic template specific to your online Amazon bookstore that you can use on all of the used books you want to sell.

You’ll also learn how to quickly modify that template to describe key features of each of your used books, allowing you to attract more customers and make more money online!

Even better, I include a series of copywriting templates at the end of the book that you can use to help create your own book descriptions.

These templates are book descriptions I’ve personally used over the years to help me make thousands of dollars on Amazon. Using them as your guide, you’ll be able to create eye-catching descriptions of your own in no time – even if you’re not a writer!
