I have been meaning to write a series on how you can publish your own content on Amazon Kindle. In truth, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out how to publish your own content on Kindle. Many folks are already doing it, and you can find a lot of junk content available for Kindle already. So if you have a decent e-book or valuable content to share, you just can’t afford to not publish it on Kindle.
Amazon Kindle platform may be in its infancy, but early-movers are going to get a big leg up those of us who want to wait a little longer. There is no question that there is value in learning the ins and outs of Digital Text Platform. For starters, it teaches you how to easily publish your own book on Amazon. You also learn how to format your books properly to make your content more presentable on Kindle. But here is the biggest advantage of them all. The sooner you get started with the platform, the faster you can get your book published, and once you are there, you don’t want to stop writing.
Digital Text platform is not that hard to get a handle of. Once you log on to your Amazon account, you are going to see the following menu:
As you can probably, guess, My Shelf is where you will be adding your content to. You will have the chance to set your own price, submit an image for your book, and even preview it all. My Account is about your personal information. Here you can enter your bank information as well as your social security number. You will need to complete this page to get paid by Amazon!
My Reports helps you keep track of your monthly sales and progress. Here you get a chance to run MTD and previous months report. You should keep running these reports to make sure your book is on the right track. If you are not making any sales and you believe you have great content, you may want to take your promotions to the next level.
As you can see, publishing a book on Kindle is not rocket science. If you have written a book, you have already done the tough part. As you will find out in the next parts of this series, putting your content in Kindle store is the easy part.
