7 Tips For Kindle Book Sellers.

The new craze in town these days seems to be selling e-books on kindle. Yes, it is the new trend, and it seems to be making some people a lot of money as well. If you are a publisher, or if you are selling information products of any kind, than you’ve definitely got to take a look at the kindle crowd as your new potential clients.

7 Tips For Kindle Book Sellers.It is actually not uncommon for expert kindle eBook sellers to sell more than 10,000 over copies of their books via kindle. There have also been reports that some sellers are selling over 60 books per day. I am sure after reading that, you can immediately see the potential of making some money using the kindle store and selling your e-books to the kindle crowd.

The thing is with kindle, the crowd is hungry formaterials and if you can provide them with what they are looking for then you will find your book selling like hot cakes. Not only that, you will find that if your book is of absolute quality and meets the kindle crowds taste, then you will have an army of readers recommending your book to each other and thus this viral factor will cause your book sales to go on an avalanche.

Let’s us dig deeper into what are the elements to help a kindle seller do well.
Buyer’s perspective.

When you are selling on kindle, you should always try to look at the buyer’s perspective. There are over a million books on the kindle store. It is very competitive there, and thus you will need to be able to get the attention of your readers. Traditionally, when people go to a book store, they will look for a specific book that is recommended by someone they know, or they will be just casually browsing on a specific section of their interest.

Hence a good way to catch their attention is to actually write in a category that has a lot of interested eyes in the first place. If your eBook is in a niche where there’s very little or nobody actively looking at, then you could have a hard time getting the attention that you need to make you a lot of sales.

Your Book Cover.

Since selling on kindle usually means you do not have a sales letter to promote your book, all you are left with is your book description and your book cover. Your book cover has to catch their attention fast. The sole purpose of your book cover is to grab the attention and get them curious on what your book is about. Only then can your book title and description get them interested enough to find out more, which then leads to a sale.

Expert kindle marketers actually think that the only place where you should spend your budget on is the cover design and the formatting of the book. This just shows how important it is for you to make a good impression using a very attractive book cover. Use the right colors to get quick attention to your book cover and use the right fonts and contrast on your book title so that your book can attract the extra interests that the reader needs. When it is all said and done, you should always include pictures that make sense and connect with your book title so that people will get the desire to find out more.

This is very important because an irrelevant picture or a complicated one will turn potential buyers off, and you will lose a lot of sale that way.

Infiltrate your readers’ hangout place.

Another great way to improve the sales of your book is to push your advertising at the right place. You can choose to push your marketing via those traditional methods where you promote your own book via reviews, tours or appearing in seminars or talks. But today, as kindle is closely related to the cyber world, you will find a lot of your target market handing out on blog sites or forums closely related to the topic or title of your books.

If your book is a mystery novel than it makes much more sense to advertise or even post a book review on any mystery lover’s website. Besides that by becoming one of them (your target market) and joining in their conversation you can actually learn a lot about what they love to see in the books that they read, which can be very useful when you plan to write your upcoming book.

Competitive Pricing.
The price of your book will always be a factor. Therefore, if your book is new, and you do not have a good reputation, then you should always sell your eBooks at a much lower price first. This way, you can cover some of your initial cost and get your books out to some initial readers first to get yourself some initial feedback.

Only increase the price of your books when your sales are booming and more and more people are interested in buying your book. When the demand is high, price it slightly higher than the market price and when the demand is low, price is very low as an introductory price to get the engines started.

It is always smart to go into the kindle store and browse in the appropriate category to find out the price your competitors are selling their books for. Remember to increase your price according to demand, or you will find it very hard to make up to the cost or earn a good income from the book sales especially when you are pricing it at only $0.99 cents.

Remember that your book is an eBook so be careful not to be more expensive than a paperback book or a hard-cover book. Most of the eBooks that you see with a price of $6 in the kindle store has a higher track record and has been listed in the book store for more than a few years. Hence, do your research and price accordingly, and you will always stay ahead of the pack.

2013 Is Here, Are you and your business ready for it?

Short Term Goals

Yet another new year has arrived and the old one gone, never to return. Time flies and one big question that needs to be asked is this… have you done enough for your business last year? If you did well last year, what do you plan to do for your business this year? If you didn’t do too well on the previous year, what should you do now to make a difference?

2013 Is Here, Are you and your business ready for it?The best thing you can do right now is to set your goals and make sure that you set them right. So how then should one set their goals? Because we’ve all been there where we are very energetic, motivated and excited when the new year arrives and then the energy dies down after just a mere few week.

The thing is, this happens to almost everyone. Of course some ‘extraordinary people’ with natural talents might not suffer from this problem but chances are you and I are just the same, and we have to face this every year.

If you go about and ask around the people you know if they still remember what their short term goals were for last year, most people will have to stop and think about it before giving you an answer while still scratching on their head filled with doubt. This is because most people forget their short term goals easily after a short amount of time.

Here are some ways to help you achieve your short term goals.

Know your short term goals.

Firstly, before setting your short term goals you must know the time frame of your goals. There are long-term goals, medium term goals and short-term goals. For long-term goals, you will usually set it inside your brains, and that is more than enough. For example, your long-term goal could be to make a lot of money so that you can buy a new house at your dream destination. This kind of goal is usually very hard to forget because ultimately this is where you want them to be.

It is, however, important that you have a clear long-term goal first before you can start setting your mid-term goals and short term ones. Only when you know clear what you want can you go about and set your mid-term and short-term goals.

Mid-term goals are usually goals which you look to achieve every year and short-term goals should be goals you look to achieve every 3 months or less. This way, you can slowly pinpoint your way to success.

Your goals have to be crystal clear.

So now you know you want to earn a lot of money. How much money do you need? How soon do you want to get there? These are all the questions we should ask when you’re setting your goals. You must include as many details as possible, and you have to be crystal clear of what you want. Some experts will even encourage you to visualize it in your mind or create a picture of your main goal with all the details that you can think of. This is very effective to help you get a clear picture of what you want.

Your goals have to be realistic.

It is very important to have a realistic goal that you can shoot for. This means your goal must not be too ridiculous that you will not believe that you can actually achieve it. You need to set a reasonable goal that you think you can achieve within a set time frame that you think is possible.

When you believe in your heart that it is actually possible to make it happen, that’s when you are able to follow your plans carefully and get yourself towards your goals one step at a time. Without a strong faith, you will find yourself discouraged and easily forgetting what is important to you. No one can ever hope to accomplish their goals if they were not passionate about it, and if they could not believe that they could achieve it. People will just give up too easily without a goal that they can believe in.

Your goals need to be step by step.

Now we move into those midterm and short-term goals. Your midterm goals should be mini goals that you set to ultimately move you closer to your main goals every year. Your short-term goals are your plans on how you want to achieve your yearly goals. This way, you can move step by step towards your goals every year in an organized manner.

Always write down your goals and place it where you can see it.

In the beginning of this article, I mentioned that one of the main reasons that people fail with their goals is because we forget our goals too easily. The one way to prevent ourselves from forgetting our goals is to write them down and make it official. The next thing you should do is to put it up where you can read them every day. This is important because our brain needs to be constantly reminded on what is important to us if we want our body to listen to the brain.

If you set your goals right and take a vow to do anything within your power to achieve it, and then go ahead and take massive actions, then there is no reason why you will not be able to success in achieving your goals. Always remember that the rule of goal setting is that you need to be clear with what you wanted, make sure that is achievable and believe in it.

Lastly, try your best to list out the small steps that you need to take each day to move closer to your goals. Be sure to write them down and review your goals every once in a while. This way, you will never get lost, and you will never find yourself forgetting what you have set out to achieve this very year.

Article Branding Your Online Business

Article Branding Your Online Business

What is article marketing? One of the most important aspects of growing any business is branding it, which is creating a name and reputation for it called article branding. It is building your reputation and is how you are known. Article marketing is using articles to identify yourself and to help create an image that future customers can identify with and know that you are someone that they want to do business with now and in the future.

Four things that successful article branding will incorporate:

Article Branding Your Online Business1.Name- it has to be recognizable

2.Image- it has to be respectable and appealing

3.Promise- you have to tell them that you can help them

4.Motivation- they have to be motivated to work with you


The name in online marketing has to be something that is recognizable, memorable, and will stand out. The strategies used in giving yourself a name will different because it will most likely be incorporated into your URL in some way. It has to be easy to remember, which means most likely short. It has to stick to the person’s mind so it needs to be unique and memorable. It has to be easy to spell so it can be typed into an address bar.

It has to be associated with your key benefit. The name also has to have a relatively generic name in it so it can be readily associated with your product or service, just make sure that it has a unique twist…preferably not with the spelling. Article branding will allow you plenty of opportunities to get your name out there by repeating that name throughout your article. This will help those reading it and others you write associate your name with the topic.

Article Branding Image:

The image you convey has to be appealing to the consumer. They have to want to do business with you. They have to feel good about it. You need to approach this from a couple different fronts. You have to make things appealing to the eye and to the mind and one or both of these have to come to the consumer’s mind.

When you are able, use graphics or logo’s that will catch the eye and that will help you stick in the person’s eye. Also try to present an image that says you can be trusted and respected. Article branding will help you accomplish this in the way you write and the amount of knowledge that you convey. If you set yourself up as a reliable source of information and an authority on the subject through your articles, it will go a long way in helping your image.

Promise and Motiviation:

You have to let the consumer know that you intend on helping them and that you can meet their needs. Article branding will help you establish this because in your articles you are going to be letting them know that you can help them and that it is your desire to meet their needs.

Establishing your brand can be one of the most difficult things for any business to do and many live and die by how well they brand themselves. Large companies give themselves giant budgets to help establish their brand but the Internet levels the playing field. Branding your online entity can be done very inexpensively and efficiently by making use of article writing and article branding.

10 Necessities For Your Home Based Business

10 Necessities For A Home Your Based Business

When you make the decision to earn income from the internet you will need to go through a set up process to be ready for business.

Following are the basic steps in setting up for home business success.

1. Attitude

10 Necessities For Your Home Based BusinessThe key to your home business success is your attitude.

Treat your at home business like a business.

This is critical whether you are working part-time or full-time. One of my colleagues is a mother who works from home around her family. She has always put her family first whilst at the same time developing her business. She says, \”I work part-time, but I have a full-time attitude.\”

Put another way, \”If you have a hobby attitude you will have a hobby income, if you have a business attitude you will have a business income.\”

You can be successful working part-time and you can be successful working full-time but it is highly unlikely that you will be successful working in your \”spare time\”.

2. Working Environment

A space that you can call your own, free from distractions for your scheduled time.

A comfortable chair and organized desk.

Stationery supplies as required. For example:

– pens

– highlighters

– stapler

– hole punch

– sticky tape

– note book(s)

– a simple filing system

– ring binders

– manilla folders

Consider the value of a broadband connection. Your time is valuable and a broadband connection can allow you to get more done in a given time frame.

3. Schedule

Develop a schedule that works for you, your family (or \”significant others\”) and your home business. When you allot a block of time for work then use that time for work. Equally important is to schedule time for your other commitments – family time, self education ( reading, listening and viewing), \”health time\” (exercise, cooking and eating), and leisure time. During these other times don\’t work. After all if one of the reasons to work from home is to spend more time with your family then you don\’t want your working at home time to consume your family time.

You are working for yourself and your schedule (by your choice) is your \”boss\”. When you have people calling you or dropping around unexpectedly or maybe out-of-town visitors may want to catch up with you then you need to make a choice. Are you committed to your own business success? What will be your choice in these situations? Only you can decide what is important to you.

In a family environment you may need to negotiate with your partner and children to have your home business time agreed upon, during which you will not be interrupted. Put this schedule prominently somewhere so all family members are aware of your work schedule.

4. Describe your business

Be able to describe your business concisely; a powerful one or two sentence description that someone can repeat in describing your business to others. A unique and memorable tag line can also be invaluable for promoting your home business.

5. Know Your Product or Service

Once you have selected your product or service to sell, it may or may not be something that you use yourself but you need to know your product intimately. If you are selling ebooks then know the content and its value. If you are selling software then use it know it \”inside out\”. You will develop a reputation of providing quality information and because of your product knowledge you can become the preferred supplier.

It is not practical to use certain products (for example a woman may choose to sell man\’s shoes or vice versa) in which case the seller won\’t be a product user, however the seller can still know the benefits and features of the product intimately.

6. Administration

Use good record keeping practices.

This may involve a consultation with a tax advisor who can let you know about the optimal way to set up your financial records and what records need to be kept. Your advisor will also recommend record keeping systems and you can find out what software may simplify this aspect of your business. Additionally your obtain advice on the best arrangement for your bank accounts. You will most likely be advised to have a separate bank account.

You will also need to keep track of your various logins, usernames and passwords. A very handy little software tool for this is Treepad available as either the free Lite version (without password protection) or the commercial Plus or Biz versions. http://www.treepad.com

There are other useful tools for this also from a simple paper notebook to free and commercial password keepers. One popular solution is Roboform that will remember your login details and can automatically fill out your login and other registration forms. http://www.roboform.com

7. Computer Protection

Your computer is the lifeline to your business dealings and must be protected including the data that is stored.

You need a virus scanner, personal firewall, anti-spyware and anti-adware and preferably an email scanner with the ability to delete suspect of spam email from the server before it is downloaded to your computer.

Some suggestions are:

AVG Anti-Virus: http://www.grisoft.com

Spybot S&D: http://www.safer-networking.org

Microsoft Anti-Spyware:


Adaware: http://www.lavasoft.com/

Mailwasher Email Scanner: http://www.mailwasher.net

8. A Domain Name

You will most likely need a domain name for your business and one cost effective registrar is GoDaddy, http://www.godaddy.com.

9. Payment Processing

You will need a way to process credit cards; that may be using services such as:

– PayPal https://www.paypal.com

– Storm Pay http://www.stormpay.com

– 2 Checkout http://www.2checkout.com

– Clickbank http://www.clickbank.com or others.

This is the most economical way to get started. Once your business picks up you may need to look into your own merchant account for credit card transactions.

Consideration may also be given to other forms of online currency such as eGold http://www.egold.com

10. Email accounts

Once you have your own domain you can use an associated email account. This can further assist in the promotion of your business and promotes a more professional business image.

As a final comment on continuing in your internet business, conduct your business ethically, provide extraordinary service and be proud to put your name to the products or services that you are selling and you will be on track to developing a sustainable long term internet business.

Online Business System.

Questions you should ask before joining an Online Business System.

Everyone wants to be their own boss. It is perfect because you do not have to listen to anyone, and you call the shots. Plus being your own boss means you could potentially earn a lot more money than you could ever imagine by working on a day job. However, prior to internet marketing being your own boss is not something so easily achievable, especially when it comes to a brick and mortar business, it usually requires a lot of starting capital.

Online Business System.Hence with the existence of an online business system, people are now more willing to look into the option of having your own business and being your own boss. Not only could you work on your own or free time. You could even try your hands on an online business as a part timer. The starting capital is very low as well. This explains why the numbers of people who are going into an online business is growing at such a rapid rate.

With that said, there are a lot of online traps as well. You need to be absolutely careful not to fall into those fake or scam systems that are out to grab your money while promising you the world. You should know that not all the online business systems that you come across are legitimate and this article will help you understand the basics of finding a legitimate one.

Question 1: Does the system provide you with all the necessary tools?

More often than not, the promise of an online business is that they tell you all you need to do is to join them, and everything will be taken care of. However, most of the time, this is not the reality of the matter as well. Most online systems will leave you hanging somewhere and does not provide the proper tool, equipment or even the education for you to move on.

Hence whenever you wish to join an online business system, make sure to do your research properly. Ask around and look for real members review. As them if there are sufficient tools available in the system or do you have to purchase or acquire your own tools elsewhere when you take on the business system. If you look carefully enough you will surely find some online business systems that provides all that you need to make it work for you.

Question 2: Will the system work for you?

Here’s the truth and the truth is as good as some online business system might seem to be… it just isn’t cut out for everyone. You must realize that everyone’s goals, mindset, passion and even motivation differs and of course, there are much more other factors at play as well. So one online business system might work for another it might not work out for you.

One way to help you find out if the business system is suitable for you is to make sure that they are doing the right things that pass your ethical beliefs. You should also try to find out what your passions and hobbies are and be sure that this business system which you want to join is closely related to your passions. This is to ensure that you will be able to work hard on your business without getting tired of it, and that you are actually working for your business as a form of pleasure instead of just working for money.

Question 3: Are their support team responsive?

When you are new to making money online you are bound to have a lot of questions. Hence you would want their support team to be ready to help you out in your journey whenever you have a question in mind when you are working to build your business.

One way to test their support team is to actually send them an email before joining up. This way, you can see just how responsive they are. Double check if they have a phone number which you can call them up at any time. This is important so that you can get the best help and attention when you need it.

Question 4: Their online reputation.

One good way to determine the reputation on an online business system is to check how many years have they been in business. Fake or scam systems usually die out very fast. If a lot of people are using the system with success, then that would be an instant indicator that the system might work out for you too.

Search in Google and see if there are people saying bad things about the company. Make sure to compare it with the good reviews that they get as well.

Question 5: Continuous education.

Last but not least find out if the company is willing to provide continuous education during your journey to build your business. Otherwise you will pretty much be alone in a situation if you do not have a strong team to back you up whenever you need them. Learning how to build your business online is a long process, and it will take time for you to learn the basics.

Hence if the company is providing all the training and education (preferably in video format), then you can be sure that you will have the opportunity to learn everything from scratch. Take each step slowly and take actions as you learn. Once you have your business going, be sure to approach the company’s support and ask them for aid to help you grow your business further.

If you are starting to profit, always reinvest your money to grow your business. Never make the mistake of spending all your early profits. It is alright to celebrate but do it moderately. Your business should come first and when you are already wildly successful and have a very comfortable amount of income, what is there to stop you from enjoying your life and taking a vacation or two each year.
