The cover is usually my last step when it comes to what needs to be done to upload my book to the kindle marketplace.  It also is the one thing that I absolutely dread doing for some reason. I just want to upload my book and move on! I spend so much time and energy on the actual book, but in fact it’s the COVER that’s going to get people in the door.  The cover can make or break your book no matter how great it is! I spend so much time trying to find the right images and even buying images when I just can’t find the royalty free image I am looking for.  The problem just got solved Whether you make your own covers or outsource the design, you NEED to check this out offer. What I LOVE about it is the high quality PLR that is just sitting there waiting for you,…

The more trust readers have for you and your books, the more trust Amazon is going to have.  That means more sales!   Get the Kindle Ranking System   You will be able to put these strategies into place immediately after you learn them.   Put more oomph into your books using the strategies taught here     See you at the top, Deborah Drum

Warning about Amazon Reviews

I would like to look out for my fellow publishers and I just want to warn you that it is not good to purchase reviews for your kindle books.  While it is just not cool to begin with to buy reviews, I heard that Amazon actually puts out Fiverr Reviews Gigs on fiverr.com and they are cracking down and catching people who are buying reviews!  Imagine that? Caught red handed! That would not be cool for your Kindle and book publishing business.  I hope I scared you enough so that you   Don’t Buy Reviews! There are many products out there about Kindle but you have to take the best parts out of them.  As you become a better book publisher, you will understand and feel what is right and what is wrong. Buying reviews is not right.  It throws off fair competition.  Get reviews by connecting with actual authors in the same niche and…

Know What Your Readers Want – Quickly

Take The Guessing Game OUT of Knowing EXACTLY What Your Reader’s Want There is now a way to take all the guessing out of what your customers want out of a topic that you are providing.  The more you get into publishing on Kindle, the more creative you are going to have to be if you want to make sales.  Simply just plopping up information and hoping it sticks is a waste of time. If you are going to take the time to put up a book, you might as well do the research to find out what your target market is looking for and wanting. Your research just got easier with Kindle Answers When it comes to deciding on the contents and chapters, this is where you really need to spend the majority of your time because ultimately it’s the content that’s going to make or break how well your book sells.

Why My First Kindle Book Tanked

Yup – that’s right. The first Kindle book I ever wrote sells about 2-3 copies per month on Kindle. I don’t think that is exceptionally great.   The good part is that I know why it failed!   I had  this amazing idea that no one else was doing. There were no other books like it on the market…..most established marketers know that is a sign to run the other way. You actually want to write books where there IS competition and where there ARE other books selling on the market. The Kindle Clone Method makes this very clear. It was one of those busy / lazy Saturdays and I picked up an inexpensive report that has a treasure chest of money making book selling strategies. A light bulb went off in my head when I read about one sneaky place to look to find EXACTLY what readers are looking for….. I LOVE this idea…

The King and Queen of Kindle Publishing

I Had an Urgent Question About Kindle…… I asked a very successful Kindle Book Publisher, Chris Diamond a question that has been on my mind lately.  I was happy he agreed to do this “one question interview” with me.  I got my hands on Chris’ WSO: How I Made my First $526.23 on Kindle in Just 7 Days and I am so happy that I got a chance to track him down to help me with my question. The question was: What do you think is more important, the content of your book or the marketing behind it? Here is what Chris told me: Most people think, marketing is just a low-end skill. They associate marketing with something that’s not necessary or unimportant.  We all heard of the expression, “Content is King.” I think Bill Gates said that.  Well, if the content is the king, marketing is the queen.  If you have a great content, but…

KDP Select Program

Was just uploading another fiction book today and I saw this sign and it really inspired me to create more Kindle Books. I know this sounds kind of cheesy, but this stuff is really exciting to me.  This is directly from Amazon For example, if the monthly fund amount is $500,000, the total qualified borrows of all participating KDP titles is 100,000, and your book was borrowed 1,500 times, you will earn 1.5% (1,500/100,000 = 1.5%), or $7,500 for that month. I changed the numbers to reflect 600,000 and 300,000 potential buyers: For example, if the monthly fund amount is $600,000, the total qualified borrows of all participating KDP titles is 300,000, and your book was borrowed 1,500 times, you will earn 1.5% (1,500/300,000 = 0.5%), or $3,000 for that month. Another way to look at it is: Amazon customers borrowed KDP Select books from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library 437,000 times in January. January’s…

Pricing Kindle Books

If pricing kindle books was easy, then everyone would be able to get this part right. The truth is that It’s just not easy and you might have to play around with the pricing of specific books before you get it right.  There is no hard and fast rule to pricing.  Even worse, we are dealing with different sites and different books in different genres – which means different audiences! No wonder why pricing is so darn tough.   When I write books, both fiction and non-fiction, my goal is to provide great and interesting content.  I go in with the understanding that this one book is not going to make me rich.  If you go in with that attitude, you won’t be disappointed.  This way, when you wind up selling a lot of copies in a day, week or month, you will be pleasantly surprised!   I am a publishing machine and I bank on…

How To Make More Money With Digital Books

Hi There! Wow – I am just having so much fun with book publishing.  I wanted to share with you how I easily add links to make more money with your digital books.   Sometimes it is appropriate to add links in your ebooks. These links could be directing readers to a website or they could be affiliate links where your magical link is embedded in a redirect link.  I am not saying that you should spam your book with links and affiliate offers, but you can sprinkle them in where you feel it is appropriate.  Whether you want to add links throughout your ebook (like affiliate links) or if you want to add the page to direct readers to REVIEW your book without taking it off the market after it has been accepted by Kindle, this is a very easy thing to do.  But how can you add a link to direct readers to…
