Do you want to make money selling Amazon Kindle Books? If so, you need to do more than just write an e-book, convert it to the compatible digital text, and list it for sale. These steps allow you to list a book for sale on the Kindle Store, but you want to do more. You want to maximize your earnings with Amazon Kindle Books. So, what do you do?
Write a good e-book. Whether you compose a how-to guide or a novel, make sure your content is good. No one wants to purchase a bad book. Plus, the Amazon Kindle Store enables reviews. If you have a good book, this works to your advantage. On the other hand, a poorly written e-book may get negative reviews. These negative reviews can turnoff other buyers.
Proofread the e-book before uploading to Amazon's digital text platform. Not only do you need to have a good e-book, but an edited one. When proofreading, take the stance of a reader, not the author. Look at the book from the standpoint of your buyers. Does the storyline make sense? Are your how-to instructions easy to follow? Remember, your goal is to get good reviews on Amazon.com. These positive reviews can increase your earnings.
Write a good product description. After writing and editing an e-book, you make your way to Amazon.com. There, you enter the digital text platform. The first step is to write your product description. This is your one chance to make a good impression. Write a detailed description. For a how-to guide, summarize the topics covered. For a creative novel, take an expert from each chapter or summarize the storyline without giving away too much detail.
Preview your digital text e-book. To sell on the Amazon Kindle Store, e-books are converted into digital text. This is an easy process, as Amazon handles the conversion. With that said, it isn't always accurate. Preview your document for formatting errors. An e-book should be easy to read on the Amazon Kindle. You subject yourself to bad sales and poor ratings when formatting issues arise, such as run-on paragraphs.
Set a fair selling price. Many new authors make a mistake when selling an e-book in digital text format for the Amazon Kindle. That mistake is too high of a price. Remember that Kindle owners paid over $300 for the device. Although a good price for the technology received, it is a lot of money. Why would an owner pay over $300 and then $20 or more for each book? Don't undersell yourself, but know that the best selling Amazon Kindle books are in the price range of $5.99 to $12.99.
Drive traffic to your Amazon sales page. Since Amazon.com is a popular website and the only place for Kindle owners to purchase compatible e-books, you will get traffic. Buyers will view your sales page, but that doesn't mean you can't lead others there too. Join communities for the Amazon Kindle. Interact with owners. Ask questions, respond to discussions, and start your own. List your book for sale in any buy, sell, or trade sections. Create a link to your Amazon sales pages in your signature, if they are allowed.
As you can see, profiting from an Amazon Kindle book involves more than just writing a book and listing it for sale. There are hundreds of thousands of digital text books available for sale on Amazon.com. To make the most money, make your stand apart from the rest and in a good way.
