How To Make Over $5000 Per Month Publishing Kindle eBooks On Amazon

Did you know that you can make a LOT of money publishing Kindle eBooks on Amazon?

Here’s another question that might shock you, did you know that you can earn a lot of money writing Kindle eBooks without actually writing it??

Some people even earn over $100,000 a month, and I’m about to reveal the secret to making money from Kindle eBooks based on my own experience.

If you’re a pretty good writer who’s got a knack for words, then you may look at considering publishing Kindle eBooks on Amazon’s Kindle program because it can be pretty lucrative as long as you’re consistently churning out dozens of quality books.

Long gone are the days where you need to approach publishing companies to look at your book clinging to the hope that they’ll one day publish it. Nowadays, anyone can be a self-published author as long as you are willing to put forth the effort and a few tricks up your sleeve.

The beauty of publishing a digital/kindle book is that you don’t need a lot of money to publish, you just need a lot of time to write the books and market them the right way.

Publishing a digital/kindle book is similar to blogging – if you’re an author who sells a lot of books and gets a lot of positive reviews per book, then you are well on your way to cash kingdom.

I’ve actually earned a lot of money from publishing books on Amazon, and the thing to remember is that not every book is going to be a hit, some books will sell and some won’t. You just have to be consistent when it comes to publishing books and eventually, you’ll start seeing some results.

My first book was around 30,000 words, and it was a niche that is very popular in Amazon – romance.

I chose romance for my first book because after much research I discovered that romance is one of the most popular Kindle categories, so the market for romance books was huge.

Based on my research the most in-demand romance books involves super rich people like the dude from Fifty Shades of Grey, war romance and military men, love triangles and even vampires.

Writing my first book

I wrote a love story based on one of my previous relationships on a trial basis – I was involved in a love triangle at one point in my life, and the plot was juicy enough to turn into a book.

The book took me a few days to complete, and as soon as I finished it, I headed straight to Fiverr and got a book cover made for just $5. Once done I then uploaded the book to the Amazon Kindle store. I was shocked that I received many compliments about my awesome book cover when it only cost me $5 to get it done.

I sold maybe five copies in the first month and around 15 on the second which wasn’t too bad for a first book since I had no expectations whatsoever. But in the same breath, I wasn’t rushing to quit my fulltime job either. I also didn’t do any form of marketing for the book because I assumed Amazon is excellent when it comes to marketing its products via organic search.

After my first book, I wrote five more books on romance. They weren’t epic novels, so I managed to finish the five books in two weeks. It wasn’t anything like those Danielle Steel books with over 200,000 words. Mine were more like short novels ranging from 20,000 to 30,000 words. Four of them went on to make an average of $300 per month, but one of the books surprisingly made over $5,000 per month which was shocking because I didn’t think that specific book was the best out of the five books I wrote.

What drives sales in Amazon’s Kindle program

I discovered that making money on Kindle books boils down to two things: People tend to buy Kindle books based on how great your cover looks and a compelling book description. Funnily enough, the content comes third. Once you’ve hooked Amazon users with your eye-catching cover and enticing book description, then it’s up to your content to keep your audience mesmerized and keep Amazon users wanting more.

Let me put it to you this way, would you watch a movie if the trailer was crap? Of course not! Movie trailers are deal breakers when it comes to how a film will eventually perform in the box office hence the reason why movie producers shed a lot of money on their trailers.

Similar to Amazon, a weak book description is a sure sign that your book won’t ever have the chance of taking off because you need to establish a “hook.” Why would random strangers buy a book with a bland book description? You need to hook the readers in the first two sentences of your book description to keep them wanting more.

How to write a book without actually writing it

Since I was running a number of businesses at the time, I had no time to sit down and write books anymore, so what did I do?

I went to Fiverr and hired some ghostwriters!

Just in case you didn’t know, a ghostwriter is a person who is hired to write books that are officially credited to another person as the author. You’ll probably be shocked to discover that many big-time authors also hire ghostwriters themselves.

I know… shocking right?

First I sent out a press release in Fiverr, and around 20 ghostwriters responded. I chose five that I liked out of the applicants because the five writers I picked can really fill space, churn out paragraphs loaded with flowery words and make the book sound a lot slicker.

I discovered that a lot of authors make money from short stories with around 10,000 – 20,000 words so I decided to get in on that market. I created five different romance books in point form; they were around 4,000 words each – I submitted them to my ghostwriters, paid them $250 for each book and within a few weeks they’ve come up with five books with around 30,000 words each.

How much should you charge for your book?

I sold the books at around $2.95 each which is a price that most Amazon users would gladly pay because most people would hesitate to pay anything that’s more than $5. Amazon is the best platform for impulse buys so $2.95 is right up that alley.

Since it only took me a few hours each to create the five books, I didn’t feel bad about selling them at a much lower price. I also discovered that selling them in a bundle was also more lucrative so I decided to offer that as an alternative.

Prime Reading programme

Another option I tried was the Prime Reading programme. Prime Reading offers free access to subscribers similar to Netflix, and you’ll get paid based on pages read by Amazon users. You can earn decent money out of it, but I prefer the bundle route because I can earn much more.

I was easily making more than $5000 per month, and that’s with the help of cheap but talented ghostwriters, 5 dollar book covers, and attention-grabbing book descriptions.

I was even writing random books about random subjects like women’s shoes, parenting, baking, home improvement, etc.. As long as I could see a potential niche, If it’s a niche I could see making a book out of it I even hired professional editor on Fiverr around $100 to edit the books since I didn’t have time to edit the books anymore.

How to hit the bestseller list

Some of my books have surprisingly hit the bestseller list, and once that happens, you’ll see a lot more cash coming in.

Keep in mind that you don’t have to be a massive authority in your niche to be a best-selling author. It just means that you’ve reached the number one spot in any category. I’ve hit the bestseller list for some small categories but only for a few hours but those few hours should be enough to get more eyeballs on your book.

A secret trick to getting into the bestseller list is to place your book in specific categories that aren’t that competitive so that it’s a lot easier for your book to make it to the top. Case in point: when I chose romance as a category, I was competing with a million other books in the same category because this specific category is way too popular. When I switched to categories such as “Australian historical fiction” and “Religious Historical Fiction” – that’s when I was able to reach number one.

How to get more reviews for your book

Reviews are also critical when it comes to making money for your books because the more positive reviews your book has, the more chances people will buy it. It’s called social proofing – you’ll convince a lot more people to buy your books if hundreds of people had a positive experience out of it. The magic number is around 30 reviews, any book with 30 reviews and over has a better chance of getting sold.

Here’s how you can get more reviews for your book:

Once you’ve published a book, Amazon will give you the option of giving the book away for free for up to 5 days as a promotional tactic. You can send a link to people you know during this time and ask them to review your book.You can also

look at the reviewers of similar books within your niche – target your competitor’s reviewers.

To do this, you need to head to the review section of one of your competitors. Pick a reviewer who gave the book a positive

review, click the reviewers’ Amazon profile, and you’ll be able to see their contact information including an email address,

Facebook account, Twitter account, YouTube account as well as other SNS accounts.

Once you’ve got an email address, you can shoot them a friendly email telling them about yourself and your awesome book and give them a link to your free book. I used to have the time to do this, but now I just hire Book Razor to do it since this process takes forever to do and I just don’t have the time to do it anymore. The good thing is, once you’ve compiled your reviewer’s list you can just keep that list and keep those reviewers in the loop whenever your latest book has been released.

In conclusion

So in a nutshell, if you’re thinking of making money out of publishing Kindle books in Amazon, think Eye-catchy cover and breathtaking book description. Once you’ve gotten through these first two hurdles, then it’s up to your content to keep the readers coming back for more.
