How to link directly to your ebook in the iBookstore

Would you like to add a link directly to your ebook in the iBookstore?

Chances are, if you’ve hired us to do your ebook conversion, you’ve now got your ebook on iTunes in the iBookstore.  So now you want to link directly to it.  The good news is you don’t need a mac accomplish this. Yes, you still need a mac to upload your epub to the iTunes store, but that’s why you hired us, right?

Here’s how you can create a hyperlink directly to your iBook in the iTunes store making it easier for people to purchase your ebook.

Note: If you already know the specific ePub ISBN # of your book, you can skip to Step 4.

Step 1: Login to your Apple iTunes Connect account.

Step 2: Click on ‘Manage Your Books’

Step 3: Click on the title you want to create the hyperlink for and make a note of your ISBN number (this is the ISBN that you specifically designated for your ePub edition)

Step 4: Place your ISBN # at the end the URL: http://itunes.apple.com/us/book/isbn

Like this: http://itunes.apple.com/us/book/isbn9781935689164

Just remember to replace the ISBN # (9781935689164 in the example above) with the ISBN # of the book you want to link to.

That was easy wasn’t it?
