Promotional Methods To Sell More Books

Today I’ll reveal tools and promotional methods to sell more kindle eBooks. I hope that you get a lot of ideas and techniques from this article. There are a number of ways you can promote your eBook to maximize its value and gather an audience. The first way is by taking advantage of the KDP Select Program.

KDP Select Program

The KDP Select Program is an optional method of enrollment that requires you to list your eBook solely as a Kindle sell. This means you cannot sell the eBook on your website, blog or otherwise, as it will be licensed and available solely in the KDP Select Program as long as you are enrolled.

With this enrollment you can sell the eBook on KDP, just as you would already, without interruption. However, the additional clause exists that the eBook will also be eligible to Amazon Prime members for free borrowing. The good news is that there is over $1 million in the KDP Select Fund, and when someone borrows your eBook as a part of their membership perks, you will receive a portion of that fund based on how frequently your eBook is borrowed.

This enrollment can provide the following benefits:

  • Earning High Royalties
  • Maximizing Sales Potential
  • Increasing Your Audience

In order to enroll your eBook into the KDP Select Program, the following must be true:

  • You Own Exclusive Rights to Your eBook
  • You Are Not Selling Your eBook Elsewhere While in the Program
  • You Agree to the Lending Library Approach

In addition, to widening your audience KDP Select provides promotional tools that allow your eBook to be included in Kindle Countdown Deals, which is a limited time promotional discount offered by the site, and Free Book Promotion, which allows readers worldwide to download your eBook for free.

Often times writers worry about giving their work away for free, and honestly this should not even cross your mind. The more people who read your eBook the more people who are going to tell others about it, and that is how you widen your audience.

Use the Tools You Have

Marketing your eBook is easier than ever, thanks to social media outlets, blogs and electronic communications that are already available to you. Even if you are enrolled in the KDP Select program, and cannot sell your eBook directly from your blog, you can provide a link to Amazon that delivers the same point of purchase required by their terms and conditions.

Here are a few ways to get your eBook in front of a larger audience, using the tools at your disposal.

Social Media Outlets

social-media

If you already have a Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Flickr or Pinterest account, use them to promote a link to your eBook. If you do not, create an account for each popular medium and use it to market your eBook.

You do not have to write a long entry about why you wrote a book, or who it applies to. All you have to do is say, “My eBook is now available on Amazon, download it today! (insert link here)”

Create a Blog

blog

If you run a blog about parenting, and have an eBook on the same topic, you already have a prime outlet for reaching an audience that has probably been following you for some time. Promote your eBook on the site, and lead the buyers directly to the KDP link. If you do not have a blog, consider starting one to help spread your knowledge, and boost your audience.

Email Lists

Chances are, you have a lot of email contacts that would love to hear what you are up to from your email lists. These people may not follow you one social media, and you may have lost common contact with some of them. These people can still provide amazing marketing outlets for your newly written work.

Compose an email – again, not one that is too long that will make them want to delete it before getting to the subject of your actual eBook – but one that is professional, succinct and open. “I hope this email finds all of you well. I thought you might be interested in the fact that I have completed an eBook, (insert title here), and that it is now available on Amazon. Click here (insert link to the eBook) to preview the content, or pass this email along to someone who (reference content here).”
