Using Kindle for Niche Branding and Profits
Picking a niche, researching keywords, blogging and analyzing products to promote are several components of building an online business. As you launch your own site, you start to carve out a name for yourself in your chosen niche.
It’s up to you on how you’ll brand your domain. It might be serious and informative or fun and appealing. The voice you create will shine through in your blog posts as well as your email autoresponders and social networking shares.
But there’s another way you can build your profits and expose your brand to your target audience ñ and it’s through Amazon.com’s Kindle section. Kindle is a section of Amazon that sells eBooks.
People can download the eBooks on their ereader or read them right on their computer, iPad, smart phone or more. They’re very versatile and almost anyone can sign up for a free account and publish without any upfront fees, since they simply take a small percentage of the cost of the eBook.
Imagine being able to say on your website that you’re a published author. It’s true ñ and more famous authors are publishing on Kindle direct instead of going through traditional publishing houses.
There are Kindle creations for all types of books, including non-fiction, so you can create a book on the topic of your niche and publish it there to find more consumers who need your insight.
Inside the book, since it’s a digital creation, you can hyperlink back to your own website, where you can get the reader on your list, and enjoy sales of various products for months or years to come.
Kindle is very easy to use. You can write your book in Word format and then upload the file (along with book cover files, which you can make yourself or have made on Fiverr) to the platform.
You’ll set the price (usually between $0.99 and $4.99 for Kindle) and you’ll tell the system whether you only want it sold in one region like the United States, or if you want it to be available on a worldwide basis.
Each month, you’ll be able to log in and see what your profits are, and they can be sent directly to your bank account 60 days after they’ve been earned. Pair your Kindle creation with Createspace and you can offer both digital and print versions of your book on Amazon. It’s easy to do and all you’ll seed is to have a cover created for that purpose!
