you are a writer or not, you may be able to profit from Amazon's
burgeoning ebook platform. Today I'd like to show you why you should
give this serious consideration...
to Kindle Publishing
E-readers like the Kindle, the Kindle Fire, the Barnes and
Noble Nook and others have really taken the marketplace by storm. Sales
of these devices have increased greatly since they first burst onto the
scene a few years back.
Along with these readers, the number of
authors who publish ebooks has also grown
substantially. In fact some experts think that the ebook readers like
the Kindle will eventually put most hardcover books out of existence
This is debatable, but at the same time there is no
denying the growth of ebooks. In fact, there is a huge growth
opportunity for those who wish to make money as Kindle publisher.
(Yes, even non-writers are profiting on this platform, which I'll
explain more on in a minute.)

increasing. In addition to e-readers, millions of people now use the
Kindle app on their iphones, iPads, and Android phones and tablets. Via
the app they purchased and download ebooks from their Amazon account and read them right on their
But before you consider venturing into e-publishing, you need to consider whether ebooks will continue to grow for the
foreseeable future. All evidence points to a yes, and there are many reasons why this is the
platform of choice for many content marketers...
In addition to the fact that eBooks save trees, eBooks
can be published much
quicker than traditional print books. Writers do not need
to work with an agent. They simply need to work with an eBook platform
provider like Amazon Direct Publishing and the rest is done for

Ebooks reach out to a wider audience.
Because people do not need to wait for a physical book to be handed out
to them, eBook authors are able to expand their base of readers. With
the billions of Internet users, eBooks will find their way to different

which allow almost everyone to be able to read.
EBooks are more
economic. Notice how a book can be more expensive as it

Besides that, the ability of an author to include multimedia

is no doubt about it, as a Kindle publisher you will have a huge market
that may purchase your content. But what if you're not a writer? Can
you still make money on this growing platform?
In fact, I know many "publishers" who write very little yet earn
passive income from Kindle ebooks. For example, a fellow by the name of

do all the heavy lifting.

each week to Amazon. He already has 100 of these books he didn't write,

eBooks, even the person who considers himself
an unlikely author may end up becoming a celebrated writer. So with
these benefits, let us move on the mechanics of getting published.
Why Publish on Amazon Direct?
There are a lot of companies out there who offer
eBook writing platforms. However, Amazon Direct Publishing is leading
the race. Here's why...
Each day, Amazon is taking in new members who take
advantage of the lending services it offers. Your eBook could be one of
those that people will be looking for. With the saturation of titles in
specific literary genres, your eBook might just be what people are
looking for to get new perspectives about certain subjects. Imagine how
your work will be exposed to different minds as they absorb your ideas
and use it to learn, to be entertained, or to be inspired.
For 2012, Amazon prepared a budget of $6 million
fund its royalty payments to eBook authors. That is a very significant
increase from 2011’s $600,000 budget. 2013 greatly surpassed even those lofty
budgets. Up to 70% of royalties can be paid to you if your eBook gets
significant sales from customers.
Some authors do not have the freedom to promote
books because of contract limitations. With Amazon’s platform, eBook
authors can promote their free eBooks in a manner they like through a
tool called Promotions Manager. Although eBook authors can only promote
their free work, they get a chance to start reaching out to people by
making a name. The next eBook is likely to do even better than the
first as one's reputation grows.
very useful benefit offers eBook writers to
change for the better. There are a lot of feedback types that writers
can learn from as readers comment about content, style, and almost
everything they can think about. Apart from that, eBook authors will
also be able to get their share of commendation for the best qualities
in their book or their skill in writing. Good feedback leads to more
sales and your royalties can really increase when people start
reviewing your material in a positive light.
If you want to get in on this rapidly growing publishing platform,
consider studying the example of Stefan Pylarinos
and his family members who have been generating passive income with
Kindle. You may just find yourself with a new career that gives you
more freedom than you ever imagined!
