Overview

Get notifications on price changes and new reviews for Amazon books

ReaderScout notifies you when Amazon books get new reviews or change in price. In addition, ReaderScout displays the follower count of an author as well as the current ABSR of each book. Every twenty four hours, ReaderScout checks for updates on Amazon - and adds an alert to your toolbar in Chrome if a change is found. With Reader Scout, you: - Always know the number of followers on Amazon - Know the ABSR of all tracked books - Save time from regularly checking books - Notice changes quickly so you can take the necessary action - Don’t miss out on price opportunities - Can react to negative reviews - See new positive reviews as they arrive in the store For help getting Reader Scout set up, watch our tutorial here: https://readerscout.com/getting_started/ Reader Scout also helps authors fight back against Amazon spammers, who can hijack books and change the price. You can read more about how that particular spam occurs here: https://kindlepreneur.com/amazon-printing-scams/ Reader Scout Limitations: Reader Scout is limited to 50 books per author for the time being because the more users and books we have, the higher the operational costs will go up. However, it is our goal to keep this Reader Scout free - this way, more authors will be able to use it and see if/when they are scammed. The faster an author picks up on scammers, the sooner they can stop them, and thus the less profitable it becomes for the scammers. If this happens enough, scammers will give up. By limiting to 5 books, we are able to serve more authors in this fight against spammers. At the moment, Reader Scout is only available for Amazon US. We're investigating how to make it available for international markets, but wanted to make Reader Scout available as fast as possible to help authors fight against spammers. Stay tuned... we're excited to hopefully offer international options in the future. If you are in another market besides the United States, and want to use ReaderScout, send us an email.

ReaderScout is a real confidence booster. It's like a gift when I'm notified I have something to check on and find it's a nice review of one of my books. Very encouraging. It's a great author tool.

Reader Scout keeps me updated with changes to prices and reviews-two things near and dear to the heart of any author. It's also set it and forget it. Just add your books and away it goes. Great tool for the busy author.
