It’s been an interesting few months. I’ve recently enjoyed playing around with the Kindle marketplace, publishing a few guides and documenting the results on video, along with some strategies to get higher rankings on Amazon for Your Internet Pie.
I also finally finished a book, previously shelved for many years, that I had been working on for almost 15 years!
The reason it took so long, apart from bad time management, is that this tome is an all ages graphic novel, or 50 page comic strip adventure for the childrens/teen market, that is all written, drawn and coloured by myself. I can’t describe the feeling after actually finishing it!
There are so many possibilities on the Kindle. I believe there is always a way you can harness this huge marketplace to your business, no matter what it is.
If you offer particular services, a helpful and informative guide to your industry. If you’re a retail outlet selling food then how about a receipe book? A DIY store? a DIY guide. Just think outside of the box. It doesn’t have to be a best seller, even if you get a physical version published through CreateSpace it will impress the hell out of your clients. I recently heard of several examples where this tactic had converted prospects into clients fast.
Then, of course, there’s the option of just being a publisher and bringing a range of titles to that marketplace. A series of ebooks that focus soley on summarizing existing books is doing pretty well., Quicklets being one example.
With eBook sales predicted by experts to reach $10 billion by 2016 and the Kindle accounting for 75% of those sales this cannot be ignored.
Whatever you’re into, do something on the Kindle.
