Section 2: Beneftis of Publishing on Kindle
Article
The benefits of publishing on Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing program are endless! When people go to Amazon.com, they are ready to buy. The best part about it is that Amazon makes it so easy with its 1-click Buy button.

This gives you an advantage as an author who is looking to self publish your valuable content.
Section 3: What Kind of Book?
02:58
Fiction dominates the Amazon Kindle store. But don't let that discourage you, because if you are just starting out, write non-fiction.

Non-fiction is awesome for an entrepreneur because people are constantly searching for information about "how-to do something. As a matter of fact, the "How-To" category on YouTube is the most dominant category.

It's great because you can easily attain all of the information.
Section 4: Publishing Costs
02:25
Publishing costs depend on if you are writing your book or someone else. If you do it yourself, you can write the book, format it, and publish it for free.

However, if you're seeking to hire a freelancer or ghostwriter, the costs will vary according to your book length, subject matter etc...

You can always hire someone on elance.com or odesk.com to write for you. As far as the Kindle book cover, just hire someone on fiverr.com. There are also professional ebook conversion services who can format your book for KDP.
Section 5: Time Frame for Self Publishing
03:03

The time frame of publishing totally depends on you. You need to create a book outline with your Title page, Copyright page, Opt-in offer page, Table of contents, Chapters / sub-chapters, About the Author page, and Resources or References. 

If you write 5-7 pages a day for 14 days, you can create a 70-100 page book in 2 weeks. You can publish your book on KDP in 24 hours or less.

Section 6: KDP Select
03:43

If you are a newbie writer and you want to generate income with your written work, then publishing in Amazon can be a great option for you to start an online business from scratch. With the Amazon Kindle Select Program you can self-publish your e-book in just 5 minutes! You don’t have to be a tech savvy to publish your e-book, and the only requirement is for you to agree on their Terms and Conditions. Here are some of the information you need to know on how to self-publish a Kindle e-book.

What is the KDP Select Program?

Kindle select program offers $6 million fund annually to help independent authors and publishers. To enroll your e-book in the KDP Select program, you have to make your book exclusive to the Kindle store. This means that you cannot sell it on Nook or iPad version. So if Barnes and Noble is still selling your book, you can email them to put it down. You can still sell your book in physical format but not in digital format.

Once your book is already published, it will be included in the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library and you get to earn a piece of the $6 million fund depending on how many times your book gets borrowed by readers.

How does your book get promoted to readers?

You also get an access to a set of promotional tools for your e-book like having the option to offer your book for free to readers for 5 days every 90 days. Readers who would be reading your e-book for free have the potential to make good reviews for your book and encourage other readers to read it. By doing so, your work gets promoted to others.

You can choose to enroll one e-book or several in KDP Select program. The best part is that you get to earn 70% royalty for the sales of your e-book in customers from India, Brazil and Japan.

Also, take note that all books that are enrolled in the KDP select program are included in the Kindle Owner’s lending library.

Can I un-publish my book from the program?

You may opt to un-publish your work from the program anytime. However, the terms and conditions apply until the last day of the term. Meaning to say, you still can’t publish your work elsewhere until your term with KDP Select is not expired. The term is also auto-renewed every 90 days unless you choose not to automatically renew your enrollment.

Does it have the potential to help me build a name as a new author?

The answer to this question is yes, definitely. If this is your first time to publish your most treasured book, then Amazon KDP Select program can be your stepping stone in achieving more readers. Since your e-book will be available to Amazon users globally and you can publish in multiple languages, you are reaching to more readers in a global scale.

KDP Select program gives you the freedom to control your content without having to share the royalty with an agent or publisher. Also, you can monitor your sales on a daily basis unlike traditional publishing wherein you only get an idea of how much your book has made after 6 months.

Section 7: Choose a Profitable Topic
How to Choose a Profitable Topic?
Article
03:45

It is so important to choose a profitable topic.

Think about...

What are people searching for?

What are they talking about?

What questions do they have?

What are they liking, sharing and commenting on?

03:18
Keyword Research is very important for choosing a profitable topic, your book title, book description, and keywords/tags for KDP. The goal is to help people find you. If you do this strategically, then Amazon will start to promote your book in their system.
Section 8: Create BUZZ
01:34
Start telling your community, family and friends about your book! Create buzz ahead of time so people will anticipate the release of your book.
Section 9: Kindle Book Covers
03:21
You can hire a very good graphic designer on Fiverr.com for just $5.
Section 10: How to Price Your Book?
04:05

In order to get 70% royalties, you must price your book between $2.99 - $9.99. If you want to sell a lot of books really quickly, you can price your book at $0.99. The catch is you will only get 35% royalties.

Section 11: Amazon Bestseller Rankings
02:07

Amazon has sub-categories under major categories. This makes it so much easier for creating a best-seller if you strategically pick the right category in your niche market. This also allows you to rank much higher in smaller categories with less competition. 

Section 12: KDP Simple Formatting
Article
You can format your book yourself or pay someone else to do it. The "Building your book for Kindle" ebook is about 31 pages. The information is short and sweet. It's basically something to get you up and running.

I usually format my own books using Microsoft Word because it's extremely easy. But if you're not familiar with HTML, just pay someone else.
03:43
Here's a tip for publishing your book on Kindle with images.
Section 13: KDP Select Promotion Days
03:36
Take advantage of your 5 free promotion days while participating in the KDP Select program. The objective is to get as many downloads as possible.
Section 14: KDP Book Submission
08:15
Submitting your book to Amazon is relatively easy. If you don't have an Amazon account, just sign up for one.

You will have the opportunity to opt-in to the KDP Select program. This is where you'll put your title, book description, and keywords. You can pick your categories here as well. Once you're done, you can upload your book.
