Over the next few posts, I am going to be talking about how to setup your own Kindle Bookstore. If you are an author, then you will definitely want to setup a place for all your readers to buy your books. I am a best selling author on Amazon Kindle and over the last year, I have had a number of books that have hit the Amazon Best Seller’s list.
So what does this mean for you? Not much unless you are a best seller yourself or if you want to become a best seller with your books. Being on the best seller’s list means a hefty monthly commission. So over the the next few weeks, I am going to be posting a step by step approach to copy my methods. Most Amazon best sellers charge a lot of money to show you the exact thing I am sharing with you your for FREE.
This is not a get rich quick approach and it will not make you rich. What is does is supply you a really nice monthly income that will pay for a lot of the things you always wanted such as a car or home payment.These methods may make you rich over time, but you will need to publish upwards of fifty books to get to this level. For most people a few books and nice extra income a month is enough, but for those with more ambition publishing fifty books and more can make you job ending income.
So lets get started. The first thing you need to understand is the Kindle Amazon publishing system. People fail with publishing their own book because they first do not understand how to publish their own book and secondly they do not complete the steps to format and market their books correctly. If an author wants to succeed, they need to understanding formatting and marketing.
So far we talked about Amazon Kindle, the amount of books you may want to write and a few simple pointers about publishing. Our goal is to create a Kindle Bookstore where others will come to see what we have published and make a decision to buy. To start, the first thing you need to do is go setup your Amazon Author Central Account. This will act as the place for all your readers to gather. For now you don’t have to fill in anything, but your profile information. we are going to come back to the author central account in the future to do a bit more with it. The complete configuration will be part of the marketing plan. After you set up your author account, start to write or complete your first Kindle book. If you are unsure how to do this, do not worry, I will cover all this in future posts.
For now this is your homework. In a few days, I am going to write a new detailed post on Amazon Kindle. Anyone can become a best seller on Amazon, you just need to understand the steps on how to get there. Digital books are a way of the future. I don’t feel that regular physical books will go away anytime soon, but there is good reason to believe that sales of digital books are on the rise and they show no signs of stopping.
