Five Critical Tips To Help You Sell More Kindle Ebooks

February 04, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 157

The Kindle is huge these days and it seems like everybody wants to learn how to sell books on the Amazon Kindle. The good news is, you can do amazingly well and make quite a bit of money selling your Ebooks on the Kindle as long as you follow these simple steps.

1. Quality Is Key. It's important that you start out with a good quality book (or books). In the early days of the Kindle, people would put low quality private label rights up as a Kindle Ebook (I never recommended this) and they were able to make a little bit of money. Thankfully, Amazon has done a great job weeding out the low quality junk books and has banned many of those so-called authors.

Make sure that any book you publish on the Kindle is unique and high quality. Anything less can get you banned.

2. Price test your books. This is a great tip that many people don't try. We had a book that we did some price testing on and we actually sold more books at the $3.99 price than we did when it was priced at 99 cents. In fact, we sold twice as many books at the higher price! Don't assume that the 99 cent price is the best price for your book or that it will generate the most purchases because that is not always the case. You will definitely sell more Ebooks on the Kindle if you test at least three to four different prices to find the optimum price for your particular book.

3. Create a series of 2-3 books. This is a great strategy that can help you sell many more books and it's certainly helped authors like Amanda Hocking make millions of dollars on the Kindle. Using this strategy, you should create at least 2 (3 is even better) books in a series and publish them close together, no more than one month apart. This way, when readers read and like one of your books, they can also immediately buy your other books right away and help move your books up the best seller list. It would be a shame to have a good book out there and leave people wanting more with nothing else to sell them.

Amanda Hocking uses this strategy very well. She now has well over 10 books on the Kindle and since they are all written in the same genre, if someone buys one of her books and loves it, there is a good chance they will buy her other nine books as well. This creates more sales.

4. Formatting is important. The Kindle books that get the most negative reviews are books that have bad formatting, Make sure that your book is formatted perfectly for the Kindle and that you have a "linked" Table of Contents as well. Doing this will not only help prevent negative reviews, but actually get you many more positive reviews and drive sales up for you as well.

5. Create a killer author page. Every single book that you publish on the Kindle should have an author page that has links to your website or blog, your social media, and teasers and links for all of your other books. I see many authors putting out books with no author page costing themselves thousands of sales.

If you follow these tips, you will absolutely sell more books on the Kindle.
