Reviews come from people. Should we bribe or entice them to give reviews? Good reviews sell books.

My ebooks do not have reviews a fact that is hindering sells. They are sleeping there on Amazon. Meshack Bwoyele Keya is an author with books with no reviews.

Where do reviews come from?

Why don't you try having an offer, like a free book for a really good review? I'm not really certain where reviews come from but I do know that there are some who offer a free copy of their book for reviews. Sorry I couldn't be of much help.

You can try to connect your book to goodreads and also give books away and ask for an honest opinion and review. Most people on amazon also check other sources for reviews of the book and goodreads is a good source. You should also setup your metadata. Do this every two months or so until eventually and hopefully your book will be ranked on amazon.

It's always a good idea to give away a few copies of your book in exchange for reviews. This will allow you to have a couple of reviews on your book's profile, which will make it more likely that an actual buyers will purchase it. Don't try to bribe people or buy fake reviews, as Amazon is cracking down on this practice and has banned many seller accounts because of this.
