I just wanted to share my experience, since so many people here helped me, over the years. Normally I am greedy and don't share things that work but, yeah here it goes. I hope Karma is paying attention!!! I pretty much outsource everything, or 90% at least. 1. Select 50 good niches - don't waste your time just go with your gut feeling. 2. Find 5-10 free plr books in each niche - there are plenty of stuff like that online. 3. Create 2-3 books in each niche, based on the books you have gathered - I have one VA does about 1 book per day, and puts it live on amazon 4. Enroll all the books on KDP select 5. Create an Author Central For Each book, and write a stellar description - reviews - and all that 6. Select top 5 performing books and have them made into proper books - reports - only native speakers, the job its easy since the raw work its already done for you 7. Delete the rest, rinse and repeat 8. Amazon wont accept plr, but if you combine a few books and change some text you will be good at least until you know that the book its worth investing money and time. A few more things - I have bought all the training out there and made my VA watch it 3 times in the first month. I am already working on sites for the top performing books I had 500 subscribers to one of my books - in an awesome niche, evergreen and all that Use only evergreen topics So far I have reinvested all the money back into amazon, but now my cost is $0... BUT I have 5 bestselling books rank 5.000-10.000 I have skipped the basic stuff, you can find information free online. I will try to attach print screen from one of my accounts. Random Thoughts: The books that are performing well, redo them ASAP - after 400 downloads Delete the junk books and try again Create amazing covers When you prepare each book, prepared like you would expect 10.000 downloads, don'tjust say "ah I will give it a try, maybe It will work" My Costs: 1. VA - $300 2. 1 book - $125x5 3. Websites + domain - $30x5 4. Aweber - $20/month 5. Server - $10/month 6. Buy some reviews from fiverr ~ My Earnings Not sure I won't log in into all the accounts now (to lazy with the VPN and stuff) but its about $900-$1000 for the first month using this method. (April 2012) -so this is fresh info I am working on a whole new system for doing this, will post that in 1 month if it works. Maybe I left a few things out, just because I am on my way out for dinner, I want to add that I have a lot of experience with kindle so maybe some of the stuff that I left out were just obvious to me. This month I expect to make about $2.000, but will see, I will invest everything back, the end goal for 2012 is to have 30-40 incredible books, rank under 5000. If someone has something to add, please do, everything i said here I did last month, took me about 10 hours in total to organize all of it. I am attaching the print screens I hope it works. They are all from one account I have a few. Last but not least From here on do all the regular stuff people do to promote their books. But if you start our like this you'll have an amazing advantage. Image people actually writing 20 books over the course of 3-4 months and only maybe 2 of them will actually make some money. Using this method I skip the other 18 books and focus only on those 2 that I know will make me money. I think I managed to speed up the process 10-15 times. If I was unclear at any point I apologize, I explained it as good as I could, if you aren't happy with the info rather than whining about it just press the backspace button see what happens.
