If you use Payoneer Bank account to get payment from Amazon KDP, be informed that Nigeria has now been included in the list of countries whose domiciled users can use the "Withdraw to Bank" option. That is you can now withdraw your funds directly to your local bank account.

Be careful about the devices or computers you logged in your KDP account into. This is because you can't access more than one KDP (Amazon) publishing account from one computer or any other device as Amazon will conclude that one author is operating more than one account at a time which is against its terms and conditions and hence terminate the two.

An online presence offers another way to keep in touch with your readers. And the following are ways you can use social media to market your books:

1. Joining Facebook groups dedicated to books and posting on them.
2. Creating Facebook Page and brand it for your author profile and you can then promote some of its posts.
3. Creating a Twitter profile and brand it for your publishing pan name and you can then promote some of its posts.

Keyword strategy is very important in book publishing. So, you have to research for appropriate and high traffic keywords that match your book's status before hitting the publish button.

It will interest you to know that you can now set a pre-order up to one year before your title’s release date through your Kindle Direct Publishing dashboard.
Re: WRITING AND BOOK MARKETING RESOURCES AND STRATEGIES by Stevenbright(m): 5:44am On Oct 01, 2019
One thing you need to know is that the more books you publish, the greater your sales potentials. This is because if one title don't sell, another will.

Also make sure your books contents are professionally formatted to avoid refunds.
Re: WRITING AND BOOK MARKETING RESOURCES AND STRATEGIES by Stevenbright(m): 6:01am On Oct 03, 2019
It is important that the eBook and Print book cover of your book be professional, and clear. This is because it is the first part of the book (product) that potential readers have contact with.

CLARIFICATION ON ISBN:

If you are publishing your book as an eBook or paperback through Amazon, you don't need an ISBN. It is only if you want an extended distribution through Amazon or you want to publish it as a paperback book in Nigeria that you will need one and in that case you can ask a traditional publisher or Liberian where you can get one for your new book.

With respect to inquiries about ISBN, you don't need to buy ISBN as Amazon KDP will give it to you for free when publishing paperback books and as for the eBook, they have their own catalog numbers ASIN which they also assign to eBook during publishing for free.

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.
