How To Create Free Kdp Account On Amazon To Make Over 150K - 1M Naira Monthly. by Dyjonas86(m): 7:50am On May 25, 2019
Welcome onboard fellow Nairalanders. This thread is for those who want to make money publishing articles or short stories/reports on amazon. To get started, you will need to create a free publishing account with amazon KDP- Kindle Direct Publishing. Let's get started;

You see, One of the advantages of Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) is its ability to generate passive income. This is one of the reasons I love this business model. But you may want to ask, what is amazon and how can Nigerians make money publishing books on amazon?

So, what is amazon all about? Amazon is the largest online retail store on the globe. Amazon is also the best platform for independent authors to publish their books and make money from their work. You can choose how much royalty you want to earn from your book. You can either earn 70% or 30% from your book royalty. But I set my royalty earning at 70%. So, I would also like you to do the same for your books. We don’t need to tell too many stories about amazon as they are already the online umpire for indie authors. So, let’s talk about the rules of Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing. Before we talk about how to create a free account with amazon, let's look at the dos and don'ts of Amazon Kindle direct publishing.

The Golden Rules of Amazon KDP

The Do’s of Amazon Kindle Publishing
1. Make sure your account is verified by Amazon before publishing your first book.
2. Submit the necessary documents for your account verification. Such as Government Issued Identity Card – Permanent Voter’s card, National Identity card, International Passport, or any other means of identification that clearly shows your name and address.
3. You will need to verify your home address by submitting a copy of a bank statement or Electricity/Utility bill, that shows your Real Name and home address as well.
4. When registering for an account with amazon kdp, make sure the name you use tallies with the name on your identity card.
5. You can either use your real name to publish your books or you can use a pen name. (nickname). I used E.D. Jonas to publish my books and I also use Sandra Mayor in other books (while my real name is: Eigbedion Destiny Jonah). So, it depends on the market and what you intend to achieve. If you are really serious about this business, I would advise that you use your real name or you’ll better abbreviate your name to suit your brand in case you want to build a brand around your Name. I think Jonas sounds good like an American name. or at least, it sounds stylish compared to Eigbedion Jonah, Adebayo, Chinedu, or Abdulahi - which all sound so local. If I were named any of those names above, I would change it to something like: Ade (popular musician in the UK) - plus your English name, Chi (sounds like a Chinese name) - plus your English name, and Ali (Mohammed Ali was a popular boxer in the US) - plus English name. Because, the abbreviated names above all sound familiar in the US.

The reason for this is simple; Our target audience is the US and UK markets. So, it naturally makes sense to bear names similar to the people we intend to serve. But if you already have a large audience or you are an influential figure, you can use your full name. Please, don’t get me wrong, I am not saying you wouldn’t make it online if you use your real name, but people need to build trust and know little about you before buying from you. Take, for instance, you’re teaching people: How To Cook Paleo Diets, How To Cook Vegan Food, How To Smoke Meat In Electric Smoker, How To Dance, How To Sing, How To Plant Flower, How To Set Up Online Business, How To Improve Memory And Brain Functions. - People will likely open your book if they believe that, you live within their environment and that what you teach is applicable in their regions.

So, the choice of the name to use is completely up to you. For example, Bishop David Oyedipo is a big figure and he has multiple books published on amazon, Wole Soyinka is a big name and people will be interested to read books written by him because he’s a global phenomenon. But if you have already built a fan base or you think that you can use your book to attract a large audience to be more popular, then go ahead and do it. After all, there’s no harm in trying.

How I Became a Successful Publisher On Amazon

Just as our faces are different, so are our expectations. My kindle success goal was to publish books to earn me at least $500 (Five hundred Dollars) within my first 3 months in the publishing business. And I achieved that goal a few months beyond my projected period. It’s normal for every business, though I didn’t achieve my goal within 3 months, yet, I made enough money to keep my hope alive that this business will work out. But today, I make over $1,500 (about #580,000 Naira) from my publishing business.

So, if your goal is to earn $1,000 (360,000 Naira) per month, you can achieve this with 1-3 books, or more, - Plus strategic marketing/advertising plans. We will talk more about book advertising in a subsequent thread.

Now, let's talk about you you can make money publishing books on amazon before showing you how to create a free kdp account.

How can I make quick money with amazon KDP?

I focus on Nonfiction books and children's books because I am not a gifted writer. But I have been able to develop myself to write on any topic within the past years of publishing books on amazon.

If you are a motivational speaker, teacher, pastor, graphic designer, or you have any skills that you think people will be interested to learn about, then, this is your golden opportunity to teach the world your skills by leveraging Amazon's publishing platform. Also, if you think that you can not combine simple words to form a statement, but you are able to read this thread, I have got you covered as well. I will show you websites, where you can even hire professional writers to do the job for you while you focus on other important things.

For me, I think the best category to write on is the How to… (how to train dogs, how to be healthy, how to build relationships…), health and fitness category, and Recipe Books. You can easily find information about these topics on the web, and they are pretty easy to write about, compared to fiction books. We shall discuss more about that in another thread.


How to Create Free Account On Amazon Kdp.

Getting started with Amazon kindle publishing is quick and easy. You just need to learn quite a few things. I have even listed them below to make life easier for you.

(a) You will need to create Kindle Publishing Account
(b) Learn How to format your kindle books and paperback version, it is as simple as ABC...
(c) You’ll need a professionally designed book cover (Don’t worry, if you have no idea about cover design. Once again, I will show you websites to hire professional graphics and book cover designers).
(d) You will need a means of receiving payment from amazon. (amazon will not transfer your funds into your local bank account.) You will need to have an international bank account. Again, don’t get confused or discouraged. I will also show you how to apply and set up a USA bank account that will send you an ATM card to withdraw your funds at any ATM designated bank all around the world. I am sure you have heard of Payoneer Payment Service?
(e) Your short story books, should have at least 1,500 words. Except for children and color books.
(f) Amazon marketing support service.

How To Register Your Kindle Publishing Account

To create a free account with amazon, visit www(dot)kdp(dot)amazon(dot)com and register with your “real” details. Use your real name, your correct home address, email address, and phone number where necessary. Also, remember to choose a password you can easily remember and write it down somewhere. In fact, I wrote all my login detail in my diary, because I wouldn’t want to mess up things when trying to access my account.

Now that you have signed up for a free account with Amazon, you will need to complete your account information before amazon can send payments into your bank account.

Dealing With Tax Issues

TAX: Amazon will ask you to provide and complete your tax information before publishing your books. The process is simple and straightforward. Just go through the process and type your name in the area they require your signature. It is really just a formality because you are a Nigerian and there are no tax details to supply. As a Nigerian, 30% will be withheld from your royalty as tax for sales in the USA and some other marketplaces. This is because Nigeria does not have a tax treaty with America. The tax for UK and other European marketplace sales is very low or nonexistent in most cases.

To get detail about how to set up your free KDP account, Payoneer account, and the secret to start making money with amazon KDP business as a successful author/publisher, check out my signature and click on the link to read more on our website.

If you have any relevant question as regard amazon book publishing business, don't hesitate to contact me via email or the link on my signature.

I hope you got the gist (KoKo) let's start making the money so that we can sing our favorite song "I don get alert na God win"

I will see you on the inside.

I really wish to be a publisher on Amazon and have a sustainable source of income.
I write articles but I've never written a book though I look forward to writing one someday.

You mentioned something about writing "how to" ebooks.
I'd like to know the minimum number of pages I can write to meet the standard of Amazon.

Thanks.

For fiction and nonfiction books, 1,500 is the minimum word count. For children and colour books, it can be lesser than that. Make sure you have at least 8,000 word count before you can actually call it an article or ebook. Though your writing style and the quality of your content in the book matters most. I hope you got the koko (gist)?

Is there anywhere on the internet where you can run sponsored ads for free? Amazon advertising is not free it's similar to facebook ad but it is highly targeted to the right or potential audience. If you need the free amazon kdp promo, use kindle count down or kindle free promotion from your kdp dashboard. I hope you got the koko?

You're probably doing it the wrong way. What niche do you write on? How do you do your market research before picking up your pen to write a single word? Your book publishing success depends on three vital things;
1. Your niche/market research
2. Quality of book cover and the content thereof.
3. Serving the right audience.

Anything you do outside of these three point will result in little or no success. Spend quality time to learn amazon market research method

I think one doesnt need to check your profile to detect your mistake. From what OP has explained so far, your user name is one of the problems because your sounds strange to your prospect buyers. They are from UK and US and not from Nigeria and you are not Influential as well.

Now I see that you went against the rule in all aspect. The covers aren't professional to convince me about opening the book not to even think of spending my money buying it if I were to buy book on your genre on amazon.

Also, you wrote what you think is good and not what is selling, trending, or what customers and your potential readers are clamouring for.

You see, anyone can publish book on amazon, but if you fail to follow the rules and do proper niche research just as we teach our students, your book could be met for the waste basket.

My final advice, spend money to have professional book cover for just $5-10.
Research the market properly to find out what is selling or write on ever green topics such as health and recipe books.
You can use a pen name or stick to your name if you're writing for the African Americans. How many people want ttoread about traditional marriage or photos when they can easily have such info on Google, YouTube, Facebook and other social media platforms.

Finally get a guide that will show you how it's been done from other Nigerians succeeding in this business already.

You have done well but your teachings centers on Account Creation only and use of names.

What about niche research which is the most important

Welcome onboard fellow Nairalanders. This thread is for those who want to make money publishing articles or short stories/report on amazon. To get started, you will need to create a free publishing account with amazon kdp - Kindle Direct Publishing. Let get started;

You see, One of the advantages of amazon Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) is its ability to generate passive income. This is one of the reasons I love this business model. But you may want to ask, what is amazon and how can Nigerians make money publishing books on amazon?

So, what is amazon all about? Amazon is the largest online retail store on the globe. Amazon is also the best platform for independent authors to publish their books and make money from their work. You can choose how much royalty you want to earn from your book. You can either earn 70% or 30% from your book royalty. But I set my royalty earning at 70%. So, I would also like you to do same for your books. We don’t need to tell too many stories about amazon as they are already the online umpire for indie authors. So, let’s talk about the rules of amazon Kindle Direct Publishing. Before we talk about how to create free account with amazon, let's look at the dos and don'ts of amazon Kindle direct publishing.

The Golden Rules of Amazon KDP

The Do’s of Amazon Kindle Publishing
1. Make sure your account is verified by amazon before publishing your first book.
2. Submit the necessary documents for your account verification. Such as Government Issued Identity Card – Permanent Voter’s card, National Identity card, International Passport or any other means of identity that clearly shows your name and address.
3. You will need to verify your home address by submitting a copy of bank statement or Electricity/Utility bill, that shows your Real Name and home address as well.
4. When registering for account with amazon kdp, make sure the name you use tallies with the name on your identity card.
5. You can either use your real name to publish your books or you can use pen name. (nickname). I used E.D. Jonas to publish my books and I also use Sandra Mayor in other books (while my real name is: Eigbedion Destiny Jonah). So, it depends on the market and what you intend to achieve. If you are really serious about this business, I would advise that you use your real name or you’ll better abbreviate your name to suit your brand in case you want to build a brand around your Name. I think Jonas sounds good like an American name. or at least, it sounds stylish compared to Eigbedion Jonah, Adebayo, Chinedu, or Abdulahi - which all sounds so local. If I were named any of those names above, I would change it to something like: Ade (popular musician in the UK) - plus your English name, Chi (sounds like a Chinese name) - plus your English name, and Ali (Mohammed Ali was a popular boxer in the US) - plus English name. Because the abbreviated names above all sound familiar in the US.

The reason for this is simple; Our target audience is the US and UK markets. So, it naturally makes sense to bear names similar to the people we intend to serve. But if you already have a large audience or you are influential figure, you can use your full name. Please, don’t get me wrong, I am not saying you wouldn’t make it online if you use your real name, but people need to build trust and know little about you before buying from you. Take for instance, you’re teaching people: How To Cook Paleo Diets, How To Cook Vegan Food, How To Smoke Meat In Electric Smoker, How To Dance, How To Sing, How To Plant Flower, How To Set Up Online Business, How To Improve Memory And Brain Functions. - People will likely open your book if they believe that, you live within their environment and that what you teach is applicable in their regions.

So, the choice of the name to use is completely up to you. For example, Bishop David Oyedipo is a big figure and he has multiple books published on amazon, Wole Soyinka is a big name and people will be interested to read books written by him because he’s a global phenomenal. But if you have already built a fan base or you think that you can use your book to attract large audience to be more popular, then go ahead and do it. After all, there’s no harm in trying.

How I Became Successful Publisher On Amazon

Just as our faces are different, so are our expectations. My kindle success goal was to publish books to earn me at least $500 (Five hundred Dollars) within my first 3 months in the publishing business. And I achieved that goal few months beyond my projected period. It’s normal for every business, though I didn’t achieve my goal within 3 months, but I made enough money to keep my hope alive that this business will work out. But today, I make over $1,500 (about #580,000 Naira) from my publishing business.

So, if your goal is to earn $1,000 (360,000 Naira) per month, you can achieve this with 1-3 books, or more, - Plus strategic marketing/advertising plans. We will talk more about book advertising in subsequent thread.

Now, let's talk about you you can make money publishing books on amazon before showing you how to create a free kdp account.

How can I make quick money with amazon KDP?

I focus on Non fiction books and children books, because I am not a gifted writer. But I have been able to develop myself to write on any topic within the past years of publishing books on amazon.

If you are a motivational speaker, teacher, pastor, graphic designer, or you have any skills that you think people will be interested to learn about, then, this is your golden opportunity to teach the world your skills by leveraging on amazon publishing platform. Also, if you think that you can not combine simple words to form a statement, but you are able to read this thread, I have got you covered as well. I will show you websites, where you can even hire professional writers to do the job for you while you focus on other important things.

For me, I think the best category to write on is the How to… (how to train dogs, how to be healthy, how to build relationship…), health and fitness category and Recipe Books. You can easily find information about these topics on the web, and they are pretty easy to write about, compared to fiction books. We shall discuss more about that in another thread.


How to Create Free Account On Amazon Kdp.

Getting started with Amazon kindle publishing is quick and easy. You just need to learn quite few things. I have even listed them below to make life easier for you.

(a) You will need to create Kindle Publishing Account
(b) Learn How to format your kindle books and paperback version, it as simple as ABC...
(c) You’ll need a professionally designed book cover (Don’t worry, if you have no idea about cover design. Once again, I will show you websites to hire professional graphics and book cover designers).
(d) You will need a means of receiving payment from amazon. (amazon will not transfer your funds into your local bank account.) You will need to have international bank account. Again, don’t get confused or discouraged. I will also show you how to apply and set up a USA bank account that will send you ATM card to withdraw your funds at any ATM designated banks all around the world. I am sure you have heard of Payoneer Payment Service?
(e) Your short story books, should have at least 1,500 words. Excepts for children and color books.
(f) Amazon marketing support service.

How To Register Your Kindle Publishing Account

To create free account with amazon, visit www(dot)kdp(dot)amazon(dot)com and register with your “real” details. Use your real names, your correct home address, email address, and phone number where necessary. Also, remember to choose password you can easily remember and write it down somewhere. In fact, I wrote all my log in detail in my diary, because I wouldn’t want to mess up things when trying to access my account.

Now that you have signed up for a free account with amazon, you will need to complete your account information before amazon can send payments into your bank account.

Dealing With Tax Issue

TAX: Amazon will ask you to provide and complete your tax information before publishing your books. The process is simple and straight forward. Just go through the process and type your name in the area they require your signature. It is really just a formality because you are a Nigerian and there are no tax details to supply. As a Nigerian, 30% will be withheld from your royalty as tax for sales in the USA and some other marketplaces. This is because Nigeria does not have a tax treaty with America. The tax for UK and other European marketplace sales is very low or nonexistence in most cases.
