Amazon KDP: How to self-publish e-books on amazon with smart phone
In this Amazon KDP post I will be showing you Step-By-Step secret on How To Earn $200-$1000 Monthly From Amazon With Just Your Smartphone.
Maybe you’ve been hearing about Amazon KDP and how people publish books without writing; but you don’t understand how it happens or what they mean. Well, Welcome
What is Amazon KDP?
AMAZON KDP the full meaning of KDP is (Kindle Direct Publishing) is a self-publishing platform owned by World’s richest man Jeff Bezos. It is part of his E-commerce Company, Amazon. Publishing with KDP gives you full rights to your book, which is not something a traditional publishing house typically allows.
It also gives you the option to expand your book’s availability on a global scale, making it more accessible for readers around the world.
Now, It is called Self-publishing because – unlike normal publishing – it is done by the Authors themselves FOR FREE.
Yes, you don’t have to pay Amazon to publish your book either as eBook or paperback, even hardcover. All you do is Upload your book, set price, and Amazon displays your book to its Millions of audience.
How Does This Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing Work?
Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing is the publishing section of Amazon.com where you can publish books either long reads (books with hundreds of pages), short reads (books with lesser pages) or even Low and no content books like notebook, log book, sketch book, coloring books, puzzle books, activity books etc. for FREE and get patronized from all over the world by the over 300M active customers of Amazon and also get paid directly into your bank account.
What types of content can I publish through KDP?
KDP allows you to publish eBooks (Kindle) and paperback books. However, KDP does not allow the creation of magazines, periodicals, or spiral bound books.
Content types typically published using KDP include but are not limited to the following:
- Book Series
- Children’s Books
Why would Amazon do it for free? How does Amazon earn from it?
Simple. As your book sells, you give Amazon 30% of every copy of eBook sold, and 40% of paperback sold minus printing cost.
So, let’s say your book sells for 4.99 dollars. If you make 1 sale, Amazon takes 30% and you get 3.49 dollars. Now, imagine that you sell 100 copies of that 1 book in a month… HOW MUCH?
3.49 x 100 = $349 from 1 book! 1 book Grace.
Amazon is for Self-publishers. And this does not mean Authors or writers alone. Even non-writers make good sum of money monthly. Just pay attention to what I will be unveiling later.
Now, if you go as an author on Amazon, YOU CAN still sell. Just that, it may be difficult to rake in sales, because:
1. You are not popular to the US audience (about 80% of sellers on Amazon sell to the US)
2. It will take you time to write many books (because the more books you have on Amazon, the higher you earn – because of more sales)
3. I know many authors struggling to earn on the same Amazon.
And so on.
So, at this point, if you are strongly in pursuit of fame that results from being a published author, I will kindly advice that you stop reading; I am of less help to you. I know what I am saying.
BUT if you are tired of being broke. If you want to start feeding yourself and family. If you want to stop being a disturbance to friends, uncles, boyfriends etc, Continue reading…
I am not saying you can’t publish your books, or that you shouldn’t. In fact, with the knowledge you will get, you can publish your own books. But I want you to treat this as a business.
I know for many writers, types of books will be according to genre: poetry anthologies, fiction, thriller, non-fiction, biographies, and so on.
This is not a problem. When I started, I made 18 books on Amazon (it is too small) and I created them within 45 days. If not for laptop-crash and school, I would have gotten to 50.
wait, you wrote 18 books in 45 days?
Yes. This is where it gets more interesting.
If you stay till the end, I will tell you how I (and others) create books without writing. This not Hyperbole, believe it…
But do you know that people sold Summaries, How-to books, Analyses, No-content books, Low-content books, playbooks, workbooks, color books, children play books, jotters, Sketch books and so on?
HOW DO YOU CREATE THESE KINDS OF BOOKS WITH YOUR SMARTPHONE AND PUBLISH?
1. Get your contents as an Epub file.
2. For eBook, design your book cover and save as JPEG
3. For paperback, Design your book cover and save as PDF
4. Title/edit your book
5. Get your keywords
This is where the money is. KEYWORDS are those phrases/words people need to type in the search bar of Amazon Kindle for your book to appear out of over the Billions of books listed there.
On KDP, you are allowed to give 7 keywords. And you just don’t put any rubbish. NO WE RESEARCH ON THE RIGHT KEYWORDS TO USE.
Set your book description
And wait as the sales roll in.
IF YOU TAKE THIS AS A BUSINESS, LIKE ME, YOU WILL UNDERSTAND THAT THIS DOESN’T HAPPEN WITH JUST ONE BOOK.
In our mentorship group we set a task of publishing a book every day. Some people even publish 3 a day. That shows you that we aren’t here for jokes.
Now, I listed all you have to do, but, DO YOU KNOW HOW TO DO IT?
