Most authors think they’ll instantly start making money after uploading (Publishing) their book on the Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing platform.
For some, after waiting for days, weeks, months and sometimes year without having a cash out they’ll come to a conclusion that it doesn’t work.
Some say the Amazon Kindle platform is not for Africans AND that’s not true.
Here’s why your book is not selling on Amazon despite all the time, energy and resources you invested in creating it.
You see, the Amazon Kindle Platform is a market place and sales principles must be applied for income to be generated.
Most writers create books on subjects they’re passionate about ( or on a subject they think people want ) and hope people will buy their books
This is called hope-marketing…
And it hardly works.
Here’s what you should do before you create and Publish your first or next book (if you really want your book to sell on Amazon)
✅ You need to carry out a solid Market Research.
You want to make sure there’s a Market (demand ) for books like yours before your even create the book.
The truth is, you’ll struggle to sell your book if you don’t give your prospective buyers (readers ) Exactly what they want.
That’s why you need to start your book creation process with a research.
You see, after selling thousands of ebooks on Amazon and helping my student make cool cash as well, I can tell you that market research is a must especially if you want to make 7 Figures selling books on Amazon.
No matter how attention grabbing your book cover is they won’t buy unless you give them want they a hungry for.
My point is, you need to start with a research.
✅ Creating the book comes after a solid research.
People will not buy your book on Amazon simply because you’re passionate about the subject you wrote about. They’ll buy it because you listened to them and created a book that looks that something that will solve their problems.
You can read that again.
✅ There’s more to making sales on Amazon but market research is the first step in my Proven 7-Step System and that’s why you should start with a research.
You have to use research to determine what people wants and create it to meet their specification AND you’ll definitely make a lot of sales on Amazon.
I hope you’ve learnt a thing or two?
