Kindle Publishing- My Ultimate Guide to Making Money on Kindle

Over the past year, I’ve actually make money on publishing Kindle e-books on Amazon.  Many new authors, publishers and internet marketers have been taking advantage of the Amazon Kindle platform recently, since it’s a very simple and lucrative way to make money online. With the rise of e-books now massively outselling physical paperback books, there’s a new opportunity for people to start making money by self-publishing e-books.  The great thing is, you don’t have to be an established author, or find a publishing company, or even write your own books anymore.  Amazon has made it EASY for anyone – and I mean ANYONE – to publish e-books and start making money on Kindle. This post will serve as a guide to breaking down exactly how you can get started publishing e-books and making money online.

Secret You Need to Know About How Making Money On Kindle Really Works!

Getting started with making money on Kindle is fairly simple.  You simply sign up for a free KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing) account.  With your KDP account, you can easily add a new book to your bookshelf within minutes.  You simply fill in the title of your book, author name, description, upload a cover, upload your e-book file, select your book price, and hit publish.  KDP then reviews your book within 24 hours and will publish it, making it available for sale on Amazon around the world.  Amazon then does most of the selling and marketing for you, while paying you a royalty of up to 70% for every sale.  Pretty cool, right?

Of course, there is work you have to put in.  You must come up with a book idea or niche.  You must come up with a title for your book.  You need to have a cover made for your book.  You can either write the book yourself, or hire writers to do it for you.  And of course, there are many ways to market your Kindle book, begin getting reviews, and optimizing your Kindle book for optimal sales.  All of this is fairly simple to do and learn, and I’ll walk you through most of it in this guide.

Let Me Give You An Example Of My Kindle Book…

There was a book  I personally wrote myself.  It’s called Life in a Garden and it’s a self-development book that goes into some of my best strategies that have helped me become successful today.  It took me about two weeks to write this book, spending several hours per day. It took my many month before i could receive one sales… Later on I plan quitting but some thing stop me to try any another method on how to get more sales, immediately i implemented the strategies in a week i made more than 5 sales. This have made me thousands of dollars and continues to generate a couple hundred dollars per month of passive income.

The following are want you need to understand

Finding A Profitable Niche Or Category For Your Kindle E-Book

One of the biggest things that I’ve found that determines the success of one Kindle book over another, is the niche or market that book is in. There are some book ideas that you might come up with that there simply isn’t be a big enough market for. At the same time, you might come up with a book idea that there is a big market for, but the competition is too high so it’d be difficult to get your book noticed.

Analyzing The Profitability Of Your Kindle Book Ideas

The first thing that you want to do is see if there is actually a market on Amazon for your book idea.  This is a big mistake most people make, as they often just create a Kindle book without doing the proper market research.  I’ve made mistakes in the past of doing this – publishing a Kindle book without doing the research, to later find out there is no market for it and it generates zero sales.  This is one of the most important steps, so it’s not to be over-looked.

One of the ways I do this is by simply typing in the keyword for the book idea in the search bar on Amazon.com.  You also want to make sure to change the selection from “All” to “Kindle Store” when doing the research, as you don’t want to be looking at the results of all the other products on Amazon, only Kindle.  When doing this, often times a drop-down will show up where Amazon will give you suggestions for what to type in.  Check out the image below to see what I mean.

Create A Title And Cover For Your Kindle E-Book

Once you’ve decided upon a niche for your Kindle book, the next step is to create a title and cover for your Kindle book.  When it comes to creating a title, you want to make sure that you have the keyword for your niche in it.  This will help to get your Kindle book noticed and ranked in Amazon for that keyword.  So for example, here’s some titles that I came up with for “Acne Treatment”.

You want to make sure that your title is compelling, descriptive, has benefits in it, and really grabs attention.  The more keywords you can have in the title, the better, as your book will show up in the search results more often.  You can also look at the competing books and try to do something different as well, so your book will stand out.

Once you’ve come up with the title, you want to create the cover.  You could either create the cover yourself if you know how to use Photoshop or are good with graphics, but I’d recommend to hire someone else to do it.  There’s cheap options of getting a cover made, or more expensive options.  The cheapest option would be using a website like Fiverr.  At Fiverr, if you search for “kindle cover”, you will see a ton of people that will create a Kindle book cover for you for only $5. You want to make sure you pick someone that has good feedback and has a good portfolio.

Write Your Kindle E-Book (Or Hire Someone To Do It For You)

The next step is to write your Kindle e-book, or to hire someone to do it for you.  If you’re a good writer and you enjoy writing, then I’d encourage you to write your own book.  It’s not as difficult as you think, and if you’re planning on selling the book for $2.99 then it doesn’t have to be hundreds of pages.  Most of the Kindle books that I sell for $2.99 are anywhere from 20-40 pages.  A 20-40 page Kindle book isn’t difficult to write and could easily be done within a week.  When it comes to writing a Kindle book on “Acne Treatment”, the customer won’t care too much how long the book is – the only thing they care about are the acne treatments and whether or not it helps them.  That’s the beauty of publishing non-fiction books, is the audience doesn’t make as big of a deal out of the length of the book as do fiction readers.

If you don’t like to write or don’t know how, then that’s not a problem either.  I’ve mentioned earlier that 99% of my Kindle books were created by writers that I hired.  In the case of Acne Treatment, since I don’t know too much about it and I’m not passionate enough about it to do the research, I’d likely hire someone to do it for me.  There are many freelancer writers that you can hire that will write your book for you inexpensively and do all of the research to put it together.  Some websites that you can find writers are places like Odesk, Elance, iWriter, WarriorForum in the Warriors For Hire section, and there’s many others out there.  There are writers that I personally use for my Kindle books that do a great job and write my books anywhere from $25-$50, which I prefer to keep them to myself and Kindle Money Mastery members as I don’t want everyone to be using them, but if you dig around enough and find the right person you can get your books done for less than $50!

TIP: I will mention that you want your books to be high quality.  Creating crappy books will only hurt you down the road as you’ll get negative reviews and it can hurt your book sales.  Sometimes it’s worthwhile to invest a bit more in your book to ensure it’s top-notch and will harvest positive reviews.  Make sure that your book is well proof-read too!

Once you have your book written, you need to format it for Kindle.  Kindle books require unique formatting before publishing, as it needs to look good in a Kindle e-reader.  If you are good with Microsoft Word or Pages, you can do it yourself, but need to follow the Amazon Kindle Formatting Guidelines.  I personally use the AK Elite Book Maker software for all of my books now, as I can easily format them within minutes and publish it in Kindle.

 5. Publish Your Kindle E-Book On Amazon

Once you have your cover and Kindle book ready, you’re ready to publish it on Amazon.  All you have to do is sign-up for a KDP account and click on the Bookshelf.  You then want to click “Add New Title” and then follow the instructions for your book.
