Doing some ad tuning and noticed that the carousel of ads is gone for me. I'm just seeing "Explore Similar Books" which uses tags, "Customers who Read this also read", "Customers who Bought...", "Customers who viewed..."

There's just the single sponsored ad on the right side in the box. No custom text, so it looks like the Amazon auto sponsored ads I think. I checked a lot of titles across sci-fi, cozy and other genres and can't get an ad carousel to arrive, not even in incognito mode.

Am I just stuck in an Amazon test group of customers or has the ad carousel been removed for now?

Well, you taught me something. I didn't know you could find keywords that way.  :)
I think this is routine with sponsored ads. At least, I'm used to seeing it. Readers should see your author name and not get confused but, many times, we forget how savvy we are with these book pages versus general readers. It'd be nice if the ad wasn't right up at the top on a search. It is misleading.

Zero sales almost the end of day 3.
Thank you for trying. And without any feedback, it is hard to say the reason why.

Did you at least get a preview of what the ad looked like?

I should ask.

IMO my ad was nothing special for $150. Cover, Amazon link, brief quote from ***** review. I suppose we were paying for WWM's expertise in marketing to the proper groups. I'll see what the future brings in sell-thru.

Yeah, a TV channel would be better.

You mean like this site?

https://www.missingpersonsofamerica.com/


But, I don't see how something like that would be a place to promote books unless you write non-fiction on missing persons cases.

The downside I can see is that people aren't likely to visit the site unless someone they know goes missing and they want to get the word out.

Hopefully, readers will start complaining. That usually gets Amazon's attention.

I wonder if my AMS ads are doing that to other authors.

Possibly, but itís not the kind of thing you can switch off. Personally, as a reader, I donít have any problems with some sponsored listings a bit further down the page. Itís just a bit jarring when I search specifically for Author X and they blast me with Author Y up front.

Oh well. 🙂
