On Marketing/Sales:

You can get sales without marketing when people search for your type of books on the Amazon site. This is what is called organic sales. But your chances of making sales is higher if your market it either through social media or by placing adds on Amazon.

On what it will cost me to publish my Book on Amazon!

On the aspect of Amazon, it will cost you nothing to publish your book through them. As they earn a percentage of each sales of your book just like you will earn royalties which is also a percentage of each sales of your book.

Self-Publishing Basics – The Complete Beginner’s Guide to Self-Publishing

What is self-publishing? The traditional way to book publishing begins with the author writing a book and commissioning a literary agent to secure a deal with a publishing house. But the path to landing a deal is strewn with rejection, and the wait can wear out an author’s hopes and resources. Fortunately, now there are publishing service companies. By using the services of such a company, authors can bypass literary agents and publishing houses and bring their books to their audiences directly. While authors may resort to self-publishing when their attempts to find a traditional publisher seem to fail, they are increasingly making self-publishing their first choice. What is a publishing service company? A publishing service company provides a platform for authors to prepare their books and reach their target audiences. At the minimum, these companies provide services or templates that convert manuscripts into publishing-ready formats and give access to one or more retail platforms. At the other end of the spectrum, they offer a range of services that include professional book editing and cover design, enhanced distribution to make the book available to readers through as many channels as possible, and marketing and promotional assistance to drive up visibility and sales. Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP), CreateSpace, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Google Books, and IngramSpark are some of the well-known publishing service companies . How long does self-publishing take? Self-publishing can take a few hours to a few days. All you need to do is create an account with a publishing service company and prepare your book in the format they require. Some, like Draft2Digital, will even format your ebook for free. What are the costs associated with self- publishing? Most companies do not charge any fees for the basic services of format conversion (or providing templates) and publishing. Instead, they charge a commission on the sales of books—this can range from 10% to 65% of the sale amount. As they provide the retail platform, they deduct their fees before paying you the rest. With royalties ranging from 35% to 90%, self-publishing appears more financially rewarding than traditional publishing, where royalties are limited to 7% to 15%. Self-publishing companies also provide dashboards and trackers in an author’s account, which help authors keep track of their sales and royalty figures. Are there advantages to self-publishing apart from higher royalties, independence from the traditional publisher, and quicker publishing? Yes. Self-publishing received a shot in the arm with the success of online businesses such as Amazon. Ebooks are the preferred format of independent authors, and by boosting ebook sales, these e-tailers have delivered a truly borderless market to authors—many are pleasantly surprised to find that they have customers in little-known countries and faraway islands! This would have been impossible with a traditional publisher, unless the book became a huge international success. The growth in digital media has also made it easier for readers to discover books they are interested in. Readers can stumble upon digital books through their search queries many months and years after they are published; this gives self-published books an infinite shelf-life as compared to traditionally published books, whose discovery largely depends on getting display space at bookstores. Irrespective of whether you publish on your own or through a traditional publisher, you will own the copyright to your book. However, self- publishing authors can use their own ISBN, which is advantageous for authors because it identifies them as the publisher of record in book databases . What are the disadvantages of self- publishing? Self-publishing authors have to invest more time and money. Here is how. Authors have to pay out of their pocket for professional services such as book editing and cover design, which are otherwise provided by experts at the publishing house. The responsibility to market and promote the book also rests with the author, and they have to pick up the skills required to be able to do so. Being comfortable with blogging and using social media definitely help. Authors should be prepared to spend less time writing than they would love to! Another disadvantage with self-publishing is restricted distribution. With traditional publishing, authors get access to the publishing house’s physical distribution network, which gives their books a reach that they cannot achieve by themselves. It is difficult for self-publishing authors to convince bookstores to stock their books. There are two main reasons for this. Bookstores are hesitant to stock books that have the imprint of a publishing services company like Amazon, largely because they compete with Amazon for customers. The other reason is that that self-publishing authors cannot accept book returns, and the seller will be responsible for any book returns. Still confused?

The big publishing houses controlled what was published, and the balance was tilted in favor of stories and authors with established audiences. For an untested author, getting past the traditional gatekeepers was a formidable hurdle. But the growth in self-publishing in recent years has made authors independent of publishing houses. Budding authors can now publish a book without validation from a publisher. Such has been the growth in self- publishing that these titles now account for 30% to 40% of ebook sales .

To be able to make Amazon KDP a consistent and reliable source of income, these are what you have to do:

1. The more books you write and publish the greater your chances of making daily sales. So, be a prolific writer and ensure your books appeals to universal audience.
2. Don't see Amazon KDP as a rich quick scheme but rather as an additional stream of income and hence be resilient in working at it by writing and publishing more books. Also use social media platforms like Facebook to occasionally promote your books through its book groups.

Are you still struggling with finding profitable keywords for your KDP business?

Are you frustrated about your ebooks not making sales?

Get the Publisher Rocket software!

You can actually sell more books/ebooks on Amazon if you know what you're doing.

There's a lot of money to be made in this business.

But to be able to sell more books/ebooks and make a lot of money like the bosses are showing in their screenshots, you need to work hard.

Let no one deceive you. THERE'S NO SHORT CUT TO SUCCESS. Hard work pays!

The bosses have paid their dues.

It may take some of you months or even years to be where they are today. Why? Because they took their first steps years ago and they never looked back. So you can't compare their 5, 6, 7 years journey/experience to yours. If you're persistent/consistent in the KDP business like them, you'll be successful - maybe a couple of weeks or months from now.

Do not forget that most of these bosses use tools to make their work easier.

On that note, I'm giving away the PUBLISHER ROCKET software to only 5 people for 5k only.

I know how frustrating it is when you spend a lot of resources writing and publishing what you think it's a great book, and every month you get zero sales for that book.

I also know that feeling when you make a sale. It is a game-changer and also encourages you to write more.

I've experienced both before. Publisher Rocket changed my story from getting zero sales to a couple of dollars for my ebooks every month (I'm not currently earning big yet like the bosses, but I'm getting there).

With the Publisher Rocket, I'm able to find more profitable keywords with lesser competitions and publish more books in profitable niches. (Check Screenshot Below).

If you're not currently making sales, do not be discouraged.

Get the Publisher Rocket and change your story.

Offer is only available for 5 people.

PLEASE, DO NOT CONTACT ME IF YOU'RE NOT GOING TO USE THIS SOFTWARE. I love results and I'd be happy if more people are making progress in this business.

If you're interested in the Publisher Rocket software, please send me a message here: servicepay247 @ gmail.com (Close the spaces).

It's 5k only and it's only available to 5 people!

As an indie author, it is more professional to publish your books in both eBook and paperback editions rather than in only eBook edition. It will encourage potential readers to have faith in your work and hence willing to try them out.

Why won't it be bad because you paid a huge amount for it and others can get it at a giveaway price. You're just angry that others will get it cheaply.

Are you using the original Windows OS on your computer? See the price below before you start deceiving yourself:

"A copy of Windows 10 Home will run $119, while Windows 10 Pro will cost $199. For those who wish to upgrade from the Home edition to the Pro edition, a Windows 10 Pro Pack will cost $99."


If you have any cracked software on your computer and you still think this is bad, then you're a MF hypocrite.

Anyone who still needs the Publisher Rocket, please send me a message via the the email in my sig. You'll get it for just #5,000 only. Those who can afford $97 can go buy from the developers.
