Booklet Length 8,515 Words

ATTENTION:: Established Kindle Publishers and Authors About to Launch Their First Book


Do you wonder ANY of the following: Is it better to launch a book for free or $.99? Is there still a benefit to the KDP Select program? When should I move my books to another platform? How do I increase lagging sales?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then it's important to know "what currently works" with Kindle Publishing.

DISCOVER: Launching and Pricing Strategies That Work in 2013


Kindle publishing offers a rare opportunity to make money with your words. Simply write a good book and you'll tap into the world's largest online store. But it's not the utopian business model that some Internet gurus claim. You have to work hard and you have to constantly adapt your marketing strategies if you want to be successful.

One tactic in particular that doesn't work like it once did is the "free day promotion" that Amazon provides through the KDP Select program. In the past, you could give away a book and see an immediate bump in sales. Moreover, many authors were able to launch their book for free and see it climb the charts once it switched to paid. Unfortunately, recent changes to Amazon's algorithm has led to diminished success with this strategy. Some people are even saying, "KDP Select is dead."

The question is, if KDP Select no longer works, what can an author do to launch or increase sales?

A possible solution is the "$.99 pricing" strategy." Rather than giving away a book, some people market it at a discounted rate (usually $.99), which ultimately leads to lots of sales at a higher price.

These two choices leave many authors confused. Do the free days still work? Or should an author use the $.99 pricing strategy? In other words, is $.99 the new free?

With the booklet, "Is $.99 the New Free" you'll get a detailed case study of the launching and pricing techniques that actually drive sales on Amazon.com.

INSIDE:: Is $.99 the New Free? - The Truth About Launching and Pricing Your Kindle Books



Inside "Is $.99 the New Free" you'll get short and actionable content that answers the following questions:
  • Why is it important to track your Kindle book sales?

  • What authors benefit best from offering free books through KDP Select?

  • Is it better to launch a book for free or sell it at $.99?

  • How does "visibility" work on Amazon?

  • How can you make a book permanently free on Amazon?

  • When should you move a book to other platforms?

  • How can you build an author platform?

Kindle publishing is constantly evolving. What you need is a strategy guide to keep up with these changes.

If you are thinking about publishing a kindle book and you are looking to get people to buy, to download and review, you need to take a look at this book.

It is more of a case study about the benefits of using the KDP free promotion programme or offering your book for $0.99. If you are looking to sell books, you need to experiment to see which option works for you.

Read this book to find out how Scott faired. He also provides you will lots of other ways to promote your book, ways that I hadn't heard of before. All very interesting.

Take a look and see what you can learn. It might just help you with your own Kindle Book Money Making Journey. Good Luck :)

5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting, well-written, useful read 25 Aug. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like this author's voice. He is generous with his knowledge and offers practical advice for Indies on utilising KDP Select and implementing strategic pricing, which many of us find tricky. I've read several of Scott's titles and look forward to more; he updates his content regularly, in step with the ever-changing Amazon machine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another cracking book by Steve Scott 18 Aug. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Steve Scott writes a lot of books, he'll admit that. He has his niches and genres that he produces books in. He writes well about what he knows. I've only ever got his books in the writing and online money niches and what he says there makes sense. None of it is cut and paste from a Google search and it's refreshing to see real first hand information. Grab whatever you can from Steve and absorb the info. It can help you, although only if you apply it.

Well presented, with clear information and suggestions.

One of many books on internet marketing by this author, but that's no criticism - he seems to know what he is talking about.

If you are new to Kindle publishing or looking for ideas to increase your book sales, then this is the book to read. It is concise and gives reasons and ideas on how to get the right price for your work, (and increase the sales), if the price is $.99 per book or £4.99 per book - the process makes a lot of sense.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you're an author then get this book 10 Oct. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you're thinking of releasing Kindle ebooks then just get this book. It will pay for itself many, many times over. Some of it is common sense - like what to track, but the launch pricing strategies are a real eye opener. He seems to know what he's talking about, and backs everything up with case studies and figures, although the genres may not be too applicable to your book. Anyway, just buy it now. It will be invaluable.
