This is a fantastic post — in fact it is almost an ebook in itself! Great case study, Spencer! I just launched my first book 10k words yesterday and will see the result.
- CRAIG AND HIS JOURNEY TOWARDS CHRIST : My encounter with the true author of life.
- The Debate on the Constitution Part 1: Federalist and Antifederalist Speeches: (Library of America #62)?
- Learn more about our specialized publishing options.
- Bolivia - Guide to Law Firms 2016 (The Legal 500 Latin America 2016).
Thank you for your ebook promoting tips! Great case study…shared so much detail it is really helpful! Not in the cards for me right now but possibly in the future and if so thanks for creating such a great resource! Will refer people here when they ask about Amazon and Publishing EBooks.
How To Sell Notebooks And Low Content Paperback Books On Amazon KDP
Writing a book and publishing on Amazon may be easy but getting more sales to your Amazon ebooks is not at all an easy task and it requires a lot of patience and time for you to understand how things actually work. Creating content for your ebook becomes much easier than you think and also you can target the right people to promote your ebooks to make more sales in the long run through Amazon. That is just awesome. But now i see the potential. With my business plans already set for the upcoming year and now THIS i can already see that is gonna be exciting.
Thanks Juanita! Thanks for this great post! A lot of useful information, very detailed and action oriented. I was skeptical about it but now I am actually quite interested! After Apennyshaved, there were like 20 sites with the same Splash theme about same razors. But with shitty content. My original plan was to use the eBook to help build my list as a free incentive for a brand new website.
Knowing what you know now…. I know this would depend on the determining factors such as demand as you have pointed out above. But you have the unique insight into both methods. Awesome resource Spencer — thanks so much. How are your reviews running now in terms of stars? Steve Scott talks about not worrying so much about reviews, but they are important.
Thanks again! Thanks for the rich information! I have experience creating audio books — read along juvenile and audio only. Do you know if the eBook format, Kindle or other, can be employed successfully for this type of product? Happy to be on your mailing list. I do know that you can sell audio versions of your book side by side with the kindle versions.
Perhaps its worth taking your audios and creating a text kindle version. Impressive post Spencer!
Book Marketing How to Hit #1 on Amazon's Bestseller List
That actually got me thinking about publishing my own book. Thanks Sebastian!
Actually the next podcast will be with Brian Dean from Backlinko. Ah great, Brian always has some great insights into linkbuilding and general SEO stuff.
Looking forward to the podcast! Just incredible guys! A tight, succinct and detailed look at getting your first book published on Amazon. I love it…. Thanks Brett! This post is awesome!
Do you use separate amazon accounts for your books and affiliate? I was just wondering if I should keep it all in one or make them separate. Actually, they are already on separate platforms.
Thanks so much for all the great info Spencer. One question I have for you is how long did it take you to from the point you decided to write your book till was published and successful? Thanks Chris. The entire process from idea to launch was really not that long. I believe it took us around 3 months from idea to launch; however, a lot of that time was just us putting the book on the back burner as we worked on other projects.
We have already started our second book, and we expect the entire process from idea to launch to take about 30 days now that we know what we are doing. Potential authors will definitely be able to succeed following the steps outlined above. The most important? Topic selection and a great cover! I agree…topic selection and a great cover are vitally important.
Glad you enjoyed the post! Man this is really great. But by putting just a little more effort into it and trying to actually write something good, look what you can do! Build leads, get traffic, make money, and give great info as well. Thanks a lot guys once again for your amazing case studies!
I can now officially call myself an Amazon best-selling author.
Yep, we are a bit blown away as well. The idea with the book initially was really to just be a lead generation tool, with the hopes that we might sell a few copies. Well, now we are selling so many copies that we are re-directing a lot of resources to expand our Kindle business. I have 10 Kindle books published under pen names over 2 years. All 10 bring in money every month but 5 turned out to be winners. All I do now is set up a promo each week for one of the books.
Free Kindle promos are o. I use some of the free services you mentioned. Whenever possible, I use paid promos that let you use your current book price or a discounted price. But free promos are helpful when you have a new book. Thanks for the great tips Sandy!
Very cool that you are now essentially always able to be in promotion mode with your books…great idea. I can see huge potential there…fantastic strategy. Hi Spencer. Out of curiosity, are your books Fiction or Non Fiction? I have been hesitant to try these paid promos, but I think I should experiment! Its been said a few times already, but awesome post.
This is pretty in-depth case study that will help tons of folks go craddle to grave and launch their first Ebook! Knowing the success your seeing with this Ebook related to your new Authority site, are you thinking about going back and creating Ebooks for any of your other existing niche sites A Penny Shaved, the sites you purchased in , etc… or is this more of a tool you see moving forward as you create new online assets?
We could write several dozen books in this niche and still not have tapped out all the potential. So, we plan on sticking with our one website, one niche, and just dominating and growing it for the long term. Great post! Congrats on your ebook success! One question, do you need to deal with sales tax on the ebooks? That is probably different in all 50 states. Does Amazon help with this? Seems like it would be a big pain…. HUGE post and congrats on the success of the launch!
Great Post Spencer! I was actually surprised when I read the post title about Kindle because you usually share stuff before trying. However, keep it coming. Congrats on the success guys! Ever since I first heard a Steve Scott interview I have been mulling over launching a series of e-books.
