How to Sell your Book on KindleSelling your book on Kindle
When your book isn't sold, take these 5 simple measures
Featuring over 5 million Kindle booklets currently available, plus an even greater number of paperbacks and hardcovers on Amazon list, it's no wonder your book can get misplaced in the masses. Sure, some book sponsorship can help a little, but most bookstores are made of book customers seeking Amazon or other on-line e-book and booksellers for their next reading.
So, the enticing way to increase your bookselling is not only to find your book more easily, but also to buy it. So, let's start making some easy changes that will increase your odds of winning booksellers. Modify your two book types. At Amazon and most other self-publishing websites you can select two different book category (genres).
So if you are currently ranked in very wide top headings, it is a good idea to search for much more tightly focussed, specialized market niches. Wide classes have your book among tens of thousands of others been losing so constricting down will help your book'''' discoverability. It is a good idea to list your book under "Kindle eBooks > Romance" to lose your book among hundred thousand other eBooks.
For a better list, see Kindle eBooks > Romances > Inspirational, as it has reduced the number of competitor books. It is even better to research further, to a list like'Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Literary Fiction > Romance'. It will give your book a much better opportunity to be found.
In choosing your two headings, I advise you to research as deeply as possible and avoiding wide headings at all cost. Find the niches that really match your book. You can find and use much better terms. There are seven key words you can include on Kindle and more on some other pages.
Key words can be a singular term or a brief sentence, so it's no wonder that brief sentences work so much better. Use the Amazon keyword finder to find the keyword you are looking for and look at the results, especially the drop-down-lists. Those proposals are words that Amazon users have used, so choosing one of them will increase your chance of your book being found in the quest.
But certain individual key words on Kindle have a surprise use. Amazons list many key words that, when used with the right categories, give your book a third or even forth group. If, for example, your book is included in Historical Fiction by entering the key word "Middle Ages", Kindle will give your book an additional class of "Historical Fiction Periods/Medieval".
They can find out a great deal more about key words plus more information in this articles, how to use key words to sell more light ebooks. Books shoppers must become addicted immediately, so don't miss the chance to bore a prospective readership with a full credit outlook, thank your host and your editors, a prolog or preface, or any other text that lets them click'Close Preview' in a rush.
When you want to include some additional information in your book, move it to the back of the book. Hitch up your prospective readers and book purchasers by getting into the first section and the history as quickly as possible! Modify the color of your sleeve. Maybe you like your book covers, but prospective booksellers?
Spend a little of your free day looking at a book that sells well in its category. What does your sleeve look like in comparison? So if you're not a designer and have a self-made artwork, do yourself a big favor and buy a pro one. Something as easy as the overall color of a book can make a big deal of difference.
Such as when your book is Contemporary Romance, look at the colors of the envelopes of the most favorite title. When your oliver is really darker, it's really dark ening now. When you buy a sleeve, ask the artist if he can make two or three copies at a good cost, but with different colors for you to use.
Continue to experiment with category, but especially with key words, until you succeed. When one of your key words does not rank your book among the first fifty headings for the headword lookup, look again for a better one. When a key word puts your book in the top fifty, keep it!
The five-step process can make a big deal of difference to your bookstores, so give a loss to your community for a few lessons, and take some good things to help possible purchasers find and buy your book. The use of these methods, possibly in conjunction with an on-line book campaign, can only help more prospective book purchasers to find your book.
