Do you want to know the secret to selling more books?
It's a no brainer. Make them available through more channels.
Too many authors look at Kindle as the final destination for their books. They're so caught up in optimizing their book for Amazon, running KDP Free Days, Countdown Deals, and cycling prices that they forget - millions of people have never bought a Kindle book, let alone any kind of eBook.
It's true - Amazon is the big kid on the block. The best estimates are they have 65% of the eBook market in the United States.
But if I understand math, that still leaves 35% of American book lovers who enjoy their eBooks served up in a different flavor.
Can you afford to pass that audience by?
Apple's iStore is the second-biggest eBook market in the world. Kobo is a major force in Canada, and many other countries. Barnes and Noble still holds over 15% of the eBook market.
And, before we forget - many people still like their books served up the old way - as paperbacks they can flip through, and fold the corners, and scribble notes all over.
There are millions of people who would rather listen to a book than read it. If you don't have your book listed with ACX, you're missing out on millions of possible listeners who shop on Audible, Amazon, and in the iStore.
Don't believe me? Consider this, my first month on ACX I sold over 200 audiobooks. That's with four titles available. Within the next month I expect to have 22 titles available as audio books, and close to 500 sales a month.
And, all it cost me was a simple fiver to create the cover for each audiobook.
Kindle Cash System walks you step-by-step through setting up and publishing your book on Create Space, SmashWords, Barnes and Noble, Audible (ACX), Babelcube, and Google Play and Google Books.
