After all this, you start marketing and advertising the book to
increase your sales numbers and get paid for your hard work and effort.
Amazon Is Looking for Creative Writers
Amazon is constantly looking for new talent to come up with content for the marketplace.
For every sale, Amazon receives 30 percent (you’ll get 70 percent).
Your book gets promoted each time someone searches a keyword related to it.
Amazon has invested millions of dollars in creating systems that allow unknown authors to get published.
Such systems include title publishing, generation of ISBNs, creating direct Kindle access, etc.
Amazon Provides Novice Authors Array of Revenue Opportunities
Amazon will get 30 percent of a sale while the author receives 70
percent. It’s the basic payout, but it’s not the only one offered.
Independent publishers and authors can choose the “KDP Select” and receive payment through shares of a fund where billions of dollars were set aside for this group.
The revenue produced is dependent on the number of times the e-book was bought or borrowed in a certain timeframe.
You also have access to the plethora of Amazon promotional tools,
and they help in the promotion campaign to spur interest in your e-book.
This is a great way for people who want to use their creative skills to get paid without a commitment of some type.
You can publish as many books as you want.
Amazon has eliminated the hard work that’s associated with the
publishing process so that you can publish the work you have created and earn
good money from it.
All you need to know is how to use the Kindle Publishing platform, create a workable plan and watch your efforts take off.
How Novice Kindle Publisher Users Can Use The Platform Successfully
If you’re going to be a lead Kindle
publisher, you need to be a top Kindle Marketer.
A well-designed marketing campaign is a key way of making money (for any type of business).
How can a Kindle publisher make sure their books hit the top of Amazon charts?
Where do they go to make the magic happen?
It begins with Kindle Facebook groups and a highly successful book
Writers who purchase books on Kindle Marketing through sites like Warriors Forum are often invited to Private Facebook groups based on the purchase.
Here, they’ve joined a group of successful publishers that are helping one another drive their books to the top of the list.
It works by offering their books for $0.99 for a limited to.
These group members will buy it and give it a review.
The same process is done for one of their own books.
The Amazon system sees the $0.99 purchase as a sale, which helps the book get closer to the sales rank.
When it’s received enough positive reviews and sales are good, the book begins to appear higher in search results.
After this, the authors of the Facebook group increase the price to what they really want the book for.
This is the simple method of gaining success, and it’s smart!
Another way marketer’s increase sales are to buy gift cards for a
few dollars above the book’s cost and send it to someone who is an Amazon
After they introduce themselves to that author, the author informs
the best-selling writer that they bought their book and left a review,
encouraging them to do the same thing.
Given the marketing value this has, the best-selling author is happy to oblige.
If they do, the review of the other author’s book is put on the list of books the best-selling author has read and reviewed.
Since this person has more readers that respect his/her opinion,
the other author’s book will see more traffic and sales, ranking higher and
getting more reviews.
If you’re going to be a successful author on Kindle, you need to think outside the box and get creative with your marketing.
This starts by joining the Facebook group, which will teach you a host of other marketing techniques that you can use to be successful.
What Tools Can Be Used To Help You Be Successful?
The great thing about the Kindle platform is that independent
authors can use it to publish their work.
Besides offering e-books, the platform provides an array of options for publishing content.
What options are there?
Kindle Direct Publishing
KDP is short for Kindle Direct Publishing, which offers a platform with an array of publishing tools that can be used to sell e-books online.
The KDP will convert files into Kindle-compatible books before they are shared with readers.
It’s an easy-to-use platform.
All you have to do is upload the book, choose the price you want to sell it for and publish it.

Writers without access to premium writing tools such as Scrivener can use Amazon’s publisher tools.
The tools were developed to assist writers in coming up with e-books easily and effortlessly.
The tools mean there’s no reason to hire or outsource the writing, editing and formatting to others.
Instead, the tools let you do everything yourself.
