    Default Kindle Publishing - Is Anyone here doing it?

    Hi All,
    I've just started kindle publishing and wanted to know if anyone else here is also publishing - might be nice to swap tactics and reviews.

    Any takers?

    Regards,
    Paul.

    Default Kindle publishing

    There are many books here and you can read many to find your path.
    I've learned many to put some strategies; I use one or another...depend of the niche
    =>Tools: Word and Calibre
    =>Systems for production:
    - yahoo answers
    - recipe books
    - rewriting PLR
    - differentiated books
    - cloning success
    Promotion
    - I mainly use cross promotion (promote books inside another).
    I just publish, publish and publish

    On the marketing or post publication side of things, many of us have followed Micheal Alvear's book - Make a Killing on Kindle. It is only available on amazon and we've not found it anywhere else.

    He covers how to market, price and do some unique things when it comes to marketing your kindle book - all on amazon.

    As for success, some people I know have done several books, each earning over $100 per month. I myself only published June 19th in a pretty weak niche, but have seen about $73 since then, hoping the book will make it to the $100 per month level and keep there.

    toutpierre - what kind of sales are you ending up with, sounds like your strategy involves quantity over quality.

    nice to know, i always thought to enter kindle or encourage my wife to enter into it but it seems now its time to take some action too rather than just thinking.
    thanks for tips

    Kindle is new in France... and promotion like I read on USA books can not be applied here.
    This is why I can sell more if i have many non fiction books.
    My main goal (for the moment) is to write 100 books that can sell only 10 per month.
    I really need a strategy to write very fast. this is why I am looking for this WSO: "kindle week-end"
    Yes! I have 15 books that bring me 200€/month and one book that bring me 100€/month.
    I just put the winners of my books in paperbook with createspace.
    I also look to publish on Kobo devices
    Kindle provides more money than websites and with less effort
    Hope this help!

    toutpierre, what do you mean you cannot promote in France like you can in the USA.

    Do you have KDP select available to you?

    If so, after Amazon's algorithm updated, you can still use kdp select to give away your books - the main purpose of this is to get your book to show up on other peoples sales pages. At the bottom of the sales page, it says something like "People who bought this also bought these"

    Have you set up your author page on amazon? That helps with sales, people can read about you and know that you are an expert or have experience or passion in your niche.

    Several people I know have taken a sample chapter from their kindle book and made a scribd pdf out of it. Some people have attributed extra sales to that method.

    There is also squidoo and youtube for promoting your kindle book.\

    Finally, you should search facebook for Tiffany Dow, she has a lot of hints and tips in the beginners challenge, including websites where you can announce your book(s).

    Regards

    PS. I understand your strategy of 100 books making $10 per month, but if you write longer, quality books that are in demand, you could write 10 books that make $100 per month.

    @toutpierre, I PM'd you, not sure if the notification system is working
