More and more people are using electronic means to keep up with the fast-paced world today. That makes Ebooks the perfect solution for people ‘on the go’. They can quickly download an Ebook and read it at their leisure, while traveling, spending time between business meetings, and any other time they choose. Amazon.com makes it quick and easy for aspiring publishers to upload their Ebooks for sale to millions of potential customers.
To get started, you simply need to register for an Amazon.com account. It only takes a few seconds and you are ready to enter the world of publishing with your Ebook.
One of the most important things you will encounter when preparing your Ebook for sale on Amazon.com is pricing. You spent a lot of valuable time creating a book for a specific audience and now it’s time to reap your rewards. Setting your price takes consideration for the subject matter, the intended audience, and the timeliness of the information. Think about what people are willing to pay for the content and compare pricing to others with similar publications on the market.
As the publisher of the Ebook, Amazon will reimburse you a set percentage of the suggested retail price of the book. The good news is that you have complete control over setting that retail price so you can determine your estimated earnings based on this information. Amazon provides terms and conditions that must be adhered to, but other than that, you have freedom to set your price. Establishing a price that is commensurate with the value of the Ebook content will help ensure that sales are successful.
Over time, you may decide to change your list price and adjust it upward or downward based on sales or other factors. You can easily change the list price on Amazon. Visit the “My Shelf” tab on the dashboard to make changes. It just takes a click of the mouse to enter a new price and then you’re done.
Once you set the suggested retail price, which is the list price, your book is promoted through the Kindle Store on Amazon.com. This is where Ebook content is sold and it is an invoice-free service. This means that Amazon pays you automatically based on the sales of the product. Amazon makes it easy for you to receive payment because 60 days following the end of the calendar month, any payments due to you are automatically sent to you by electronic funds transfer (ETF) to a U.S. bank.
As an author, creating your Ebook content is a rewarding experience. And as a publisher, you will enjoy seeing your content being promoted across the Internet and around the world. Once you begin receiving the financial benefits of your work, you’ll want to fill your bookshelf on Amazon with even more great books.
