    It's not that easy. I sell on kindle and you can't expect to earn a lot of money by hiring some guy to write you a story in third-world english that people won't even enjoy reading. If you want to make real money on kindle you need to find talented writers, and talented writers charge a hell of a lot more than $25.

    As soon as your poorly written book gets a couple bad reviews it will drop into a black hole never to be seen again. Kindle takes a real investment if you want to make real money.

    Those adult video's are valuable stuff.. but yeah it might cost a little more for high quality writer, but if you don't have the money right now go the cheap route, also use different author just in case one get a bad review.

    I read somewhere that this guy hit nr 1 bestseller on kindle for a week or so and made very little money. He was truly furstrated on his interview.

    The kindle publishing world is only good if you sustain high sales for a very long time. Bestsellers that come and go aren't necessarily making big $$.

    Yeah, I've actually been thinking lately about putting together/translating some of my older texts and publishing it on Kindle Bookstore in some form. However, I'm somewhat unhappy with the usual customary price on most top rated books there (less than 5$ for a 300pgs top scored ebook?!).

    Would you guys say that putting the ebook(s) somewhere else (Clickbank if possible, or something else...where?) and promoting them on my own would be worth it ? The stuff I wrote would probably fall into the self-help niche.

    Hi,

    I have just started to test out an idea I had about Kindle, I uploaded my books about 3 weeks ago and have sold about 800 copies. What has become apparent is that Kindle is a numbers game. Kindle customers are looking to pay very little for the book, so you are only going to really make money if you have lots of books to upload.

    Anyone have any ideas on pricing strategies? I wrote a self help guide that is about 30 pages but I think it's super valuable stuff. Should I go .99 or should I go $2.99?

    It sounds like eitherway I won't be making as much money as I thought.

    Look for the thread on BHW with the free Udemy Code, there's a good class for selling Kindle Books in there.

    Start to sell at 0,99$ and then you will have reviews, put the price to 2.99$

    It's none of my business, but you should fix the description to your book. You have several glaring errors in the first text that your potential customer reads. The book looks good though, I would eat those cakes!

    You do realize Amazon employees read these posts? Just like eBay employees and Flippa employees.

    You do realize it is against Amazon's TOS to solicit reviews for your products?

    Unlike all the other ways here on the forum, I can tell you from experience there are no shorts cuts with this one.
