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.

The Future of Internet marketing

Internet Marketing Your Future

Internet Marketing is a billion-dollar industry. It has skyrocketed from just the plain old internet where there is only IRC and some weird colored website into a whole new industry where a lot of people make a living online. The appeal to internet marketing is so great that a lot of people quit their day job to seek for a better opportunity online. It is so appealing in fact, that a lot of people who are desperate for cash have also been trying their hands on internet marketing hoping to earn some quick cash.

The Future of Internet marketingIn fact, Internet marketing has been going on for so long that it has actually survived a few recessions and there have been no signs of slowing down. If there was anything at all, recessions actually boosted the internet marketing growth because people are seeking refuge on the internet and looking for alternative ways to make money during the recession. With the industry booming at such a rapid pace, the question then lies in what is in store for us in the future on online marketing.

Below are some of the predictions made by expert internet marketers Blogs Will Still Be The Most Powerful Branding Tool.

Blogs when used right can be the perfect branding tool to your online business. This is the case right now and more and more large companies are jumping into the Blogging world to further enhance their branding. It is no longer just the go to tool for Small companies anymore but instead you will see big brands with their own blogs today.

Hence in the future Blogging would become the core to branding online and there is no sign of this trend stopping any time soon. If you do not have a blog yet and you plan to create a strong brand surrounding you and your business, make sure to get that blog up early!

How well your customers do matters.

What this means is that today you could be selling an information product in the fitness niche. Hence it is important for you to be as fit as you can and you need to show people that you are successful in order for people to believe in you.

However, in the future your success might not be such an important factor anymore. Instead, it will matter only if your customers make it into the ‘fit’ zone or not. If you are able to constantly produce results in your customers, that’s where you will be sure that your business will survive in preparation for the cut throat competition that you will face in the future

The End Of Expensive Ebooks.

The end is near even now for Expensive ebooks that sells for $97. Nobody is going to pay that much for a mere ebook anymore. In fact, the norm these days seems to stick at $7, $37 or at most $47 ebooks. Charging any more than this can easily mean your demise and failure in your eBook campaigns. However, in some niches where the competition is low, a higher priced ebook can still be sold but not in a niche that has a lot of demand and competition.
Say good bye to expensive ebooks. Instead in the future you might be required to sell a real product that is well built such as a video course and even then these products won’t be able to sell at high price unless you are giving a tremendous value and unless you have the strongest branding and marketing strategies. Ebooks will become the marketing tool to help you get more traffic and trust to your products so learn to adapt from this day forwards.

Live training and events will be the focus.

Because people are tired of losing money and failing from mere ebook instructions, more and more people will start looking into a ‘real’ training course and mentorship to ensure success. Nobody wants to be that common failure so even if it might cost a lot more money. Hence, in the future, people will be more than willing to spend for seminar events or personal training so that they can actually make real money instead of paying for ‘fake’ dreams that will never happen.

If you have not started to build your business into one that gives live training, then you should slowly adapt to this strategy now. Start while you are ahead and show the world results that cannot be matched. The branding and money that you get out of this will be worth your while.

All in all, internet marketing is looking good right now and the future has a lot more in store for us. The amount of people making purchases online will increase to unbelievable heights. In fact, the internet might even replace televisions and the people that does online for long hours will increase.

The internet is going to be where the big money is but the problem lies in weather or not you will be able to get enough trust to get people to pay you for your goods. Changes will be made and people will have to adapt in order to survive. And more importantly of all, your current skill sets will not be sufficient so stay sharp and learn new tricks for your business. Sacrifices have to be made and you will surely be able to be a ‘someone’ in the future of online businesses.

Top Reasons Why Marketing With Graphics Boosts Conversions? Part 2

Good Graphics

Previously, we had the chance to look at some of the best reasons to why you need to use compelling and cleverly designed good graphics for your site. This is a continuation of the previous article, and you will find that the use of good graphics is essential to your online success.

Always remember, a boring site will always lose out to a more interesting site. A beautifully designed website gets remembered, and people generally stay longer on the site too. Hence we can say that with the recent SEO changes made by Google that take visitor stay duration into consideration, using good graphics to get your visitors to stay longer is indeed a good idea as well.

Top Reasons Why Marketing With Graphics Boosts Conversions? Part 2Without further of due, let’s take a closer look at some of the other reasons why using good graphics on your site will be very beneficial to your overall profits in the long run.

Good Graphics Lessen the ‘Risk’ Factor in the Mind.

When your customer is looking to buy your stuff the one thing that they can take a look at and be relieved that the site is ‘legit’ in their mind is the graphics. If your graphic looks professional and not one of those cheap looking graphics, people will know that you care and that you are a person who will invest time and effort into developing your site.

If you are lazy and that your site has very ugly looking graphics, it will turn people off and people will think that doing business with a ‘lazy’ site owner is kind of risky. What if the site owner just does not care? This is why you should always try to look your best and invest in some good graphics to give your potential customer an ease of mind. And always be sure to let your graphic designers know that what you are looking for is to use colors that give a sense of security, especially when the visitor is nearing the checkout button.

Many gurus who took the time to test their site graphics are surprised at how much colors can affect their sales. Avid testers will swear that a site with good compelling graphics that help a buyer relate to the item. They test the graphics’ color combinations, the font colors and background colors and those colors that seem to work are colors that grab attention and colors that show a sense of security. It is commonly known that the dark-blue color is closely associated with the sense of security.

This is probably due to the fact that policemen’s uniforms are usually in that color. There could be many other reasons but the most important thing is to make sure that the graphic designer needs to make sure that the colors that are used are properly used in the right situation.

Good Cover Makes It Look ‘Tangible’ ? Branding.

When selling information product or services online it is common to see people use graphics that look like an eBook or an ebox. These are called ecovers. Because information products are usually not a physical product or a tangible product, it is very hard for people to grab the understanding of buying a product that is pure ‘information’. Hence, marketers are smart enough to use e-covers to represent their information product and make it look like people are actually buying ‘real’ products where in fact, they are buying a digital product.

Using this ecover method, one can actually charge a lot more. One common tactic that you see guru’s use in their sales letter is to use multiple ecovers that are jumbled together to make the product look massive where they have a collection of ebooks, a box, some DVD disc covers, and together they made it look like the product has a much higher value than it should. People will get a sense that they are buying into a lot of stuff because the ecovers actually represent the things that they are going to buy.
Visual images help direct visitors on the right path.

Using visual stimuli graphic in your sales letter is very important. The most common one which you see on the sales letters are the arrows. Arrows are very important because they direct the attention of your viewers to the place where you want them to look at. You can use arrows to slowly direct them down the path of your sale funnel and finally get them to click on the buy button. Besides arrows, other common visual stimuli’s could be a ‘tick’ or a ‘cross’ to represent good or bad. These will help your customers consume your message much easier than reading the entire thing.

This marketing essence inside the use of graphics is very effective. Subconsciously, you can use the graphics to take in ‘directions’ and your visitors will follow them without them knowing that you are leading the way. Marketers like to call this the slide effect as if you put your site visitors and move them down the slide with little to no friction. This will always help you to get your customers through the sales letter and get as much out of the marketing message as they can and they might turn into a sale later.

Keeps visitors interested.

Indeed, the use of good graphic’s main reason is to keep your customers interested. You will want them to be interested in the beginning of your website, you want to them continue to read on, and you want them to follow through your entire marketing message without stopping to think. To do this, you must always use attractive graphics. However, you need to be careful not to use graphics that cause too many distractions.

Always remember that this is rarely accomplished with just mere texts. If you find yourself not using graphics to keep your visitors interested, then your only weapons are white spaces, bolding and underlining the text so that it does not strain the eye of your visitors too much. The good thing is that these days you can easily outsource for good-quality graphics with very little cost. This means you have very little reasons to ignore the use of proper graphics for your sales funnel to squeeze more conversions out of your website.
