Do you know why your Kindle Books are not ranking well in Amazon?

Do you want to become a Best Selling Author in Amazon Kindle?

It's not as difficult as you may think. After this course, you will be convinced that you, too, can become a best seller author if you follow my path.

One of the things that all Best selling authors are successful is that

they have their best selling books formatted correctly for readers to have an enjoyable time reading them. So what if you have content that is of high quality? IF the formatting is poor, people don't want to read your books. People will just request refunds. Is this your situation? You are actually losing your readers.

So what, if you are a prolific author that can write best selling books?

You need to tap into the power of formatting your kindle books perfectly. Pick up some great tips and skills so that you have a handle in making your Kindle publishing business a continuous success. Being a Best Selling author is a journey and it never stops. You will constantly be making changes to your books and doing updates, and the best person to upgrade your book is yourself. Don't rely on others. Learn all the Kindle formatting secrets from me. For 2 years, I formatted thousands of kindle books for clients that I know all the tips and tricks to get a Kindle book formatted quickly in no time.

Here's the Secret of this Course: You are going to receive the complete 10 Kindle Formatting Formula (KFF) that has already been working for thousands of Kindle publishers who are now having flying successes in their Kindle business.

  • You are going to be so shocked how EZ and simple the KFF is. Don't let it fool you!
  • It looks simple and EZ because it's been tested with my hundreds of books and thousands of clients' books.
  • I've turned the whole 'nightmare' of formatting into a EZ and fun task for you to follow. I need to find ways to make tedious and technical things fun.
  • So follow EVERY step from beginning to end. Do NOT skip steps.
  • Many people do not become successful because they don't follow instructions. They make assumptions.
  • Have the patience to follow the course all the way through.

The 10 Kindle Formatting Formula:

  1. The KFF guide you step by step from preparing your document to the final process of the actual formatting and uploading onto KDP.
  2. KFF will take away all your struggles and frustrations of the many nitty gritty formatting issues that eat up all your precious time.
  3. KFF touches on some technical points but they are very EZ to follow.
  4. KFF will save you money from outsourcing fee and hiring formatting services.

If you want to become a Best Selling author in your category, let me tell you again, you need to learn how to format your own books. Even though I run a Kindle formatting service for others and losing business by revealing to you my complete system, I need to hand over this important skill to you if you want to become #1 Best Seller.

You need to have control of your own books and not always depend on others.

Being a Best Selling author is a journey of making changes. Sometimes it is just a minor edit in your book. Sometimes it is just a minor update. However minute the changes are, don't rely on someone else to do these things for you that you can do for yourself in MINUTES.

Sometimes a little change will shoot your book to the best selling category. It has happened to me and it will happen to you too! Be willing to learn, to test, to experiment and not to assume anything in the process.

Come on in and enroll into this course,

Rosa

I purposely put these Formatting Guidelines into Formula so that this will be easy for you to remember:

KFF Formula Guidelines to Students
Article
01:10

Tip #1: Use Microsoft Word to create your document!

Microsoft Word is a great tool to use because it's extremely easy to format them into Kindle Books.

I suggest that you write your books in Word or convert the existing document to the right kind of file as suggested in the video. :)

Wrong Font and Wrong Size = People will request refunds.

You must create Right fonts and right size to give good experience to your audience!

03:26

This is the crux of formatting!

Most people do not follow what this video teaches. Now when they see my video, they say "ah....we know why now."

01:48

Using wrong layout features will send you 'rejects' from Amazon, as well as 'refunds' from your buyers.

04:29

These 8 features will cause you headaches & nightmares for weeks and months. While you should be collecting your royalties, instead you are losing sleep and patience to your business!

Avoid them like a plague!

02:41

Know what kind of image files to use so that you have flexibility to resize.

Clients send me wrong images.

People can't see them on kindle.

Either too small or too large that half of it is not in their book.

What is worse, Amazon eventually rejects them all.

Your high quality book goes to the rubbish bin because it freezes their kindle readers.

It happened to me a few times because of my complicated music books with lots of pictures & charts.

Don't let it happen to you!

Watch this video again and again.

01:07

This is so self explanatory but people don't do it.

You should read some of the review comments - "the person is asleep while writing this book, lots of spelling errors."

It's not that content is not good but you give people that you do a haphazard job. Unproessional! Don't allow this to happen.

01:26

Learn the secret of having this part of the Active TOC in as shown in this video!

Use this secret tip to format your book so that you don't have a lot of white spaces.

What is most annoying is to have all these white spaces in the kindle reader.

It tells people there is LACK of content.

Quickly make those changes in your Kindle book!

Another Alternative - Use a MS Word Template

The reason why you want to put your book into the KDP Select program is that you want to take advantage of the 5 Free days of promotion that Amazon allows you to have.

However, you need to know that when you choose to enroll your book in KDP Select, you're committing to make the digital format of that book available exclusively through KDP. During the 90 day period of exclusivity, you cannot distribute your book digitally anywhere else, including on your website, blogs, etc. However, you can continue to distribute your book in physical format, or in any format other than digital.

When you make use of the 5 Free days of promotion, you will have lots of downloads which in turn will help your book to rank higher.

I usually just set it up for 5 straight days to get as most downloads as possible right at the beginning. Some clients like to spread out their promo days into 2 parts within the 90 days. So you can test these things out to make the most advantage of these 5 promo days.

After the 90 days, you can then take your book out of the KDP Select Program.

In Section 12, I show you the Bonus section where I distribute my kindle books to other platforms.

Remember, you need to wait for 90 days over before you can use bonus section 12.
