Where should I start if I’m brand new to making money online?
I hear this question quite often and I recommend the same thing for everyone. If you’ve been through my Passive Income Blueprint or read some of my posts on how I make money online, you’ll know that I started with kindle publishing and I recommend you do the same.
Why do I recommend kindle publishing?
- It requires very little investment.
- It doesn’t require any knowledge of internet marketing.
- Fastest way to make money online (can start making money within the first month).
- Use Amazon’s platform of buyers.
What has kindle publishing done for me?
- Allowed me to quit my job in a few months.
- Allowed me to work from anywhere in the world.
- I only work when I want to.
- Allowed me to focus on things that I’m passionate about (this site).
Kindle publishing has changed my life. It got me out of a job that I had no motivation to go to anymore. I’m now my own boss with my own schedule. I’m not saying this to brag. I’m saying this because I want to let you know that you can do the exact same. By taking action with what I’m talking about, you too can change your life. Whether it’s to make a couple thousand extra per month, or create a six figure income, kindle publishing should be your number 1 step to get started.
But Jon, I’m not a writer.
The great thing about self publishing is that YOU DON’T WRITE YOUR OWN BOOKS. You don’t have to worry about writing a store, creating a cover, and finding buyers. This is why kindle publishing is so awesome.
The entire process is outsourced to other people. We get someone else to write the book, create the cover, and sell the book. We can pay someone as low as $50 to write an entire book for us. We can get a cover done for $5, and we can publish our book for free on Amazon.
There are literally thousands of people out there who want work. There are professional writers out there who will take care of the entire process for us. All we have to do is send them the title or general theme. They will come up with the plot, and write the story within a week.
During that week is when you get someone to create a cover for you. Sites like fiverr.com have people who will create a professional cover for only $5. You simply give them the book name. Doesn’t get much easier than that right?
Outsourcing and getting others to do most of the work is extremely easy. All you need to do is find a topic that is currently profitable on Amazon. This is extremely easy if you have the right training.
Once you have the book and cover back, you then go to amazon’s kindle publishing company (kdp.amazon.com) and enter your book info such as title, author, description, and upload your files. This process takes no more than 10 minutes. Once you fill in this info, all you need to do is click “Publish” and your book will be live and selling within 12 hours.
You don’t even need to do much marketing yourself. Amazon will take care of most of this. If you pick the right title and keywords, you should have no trouble making your money back quickly.
It’s really that easy.
What To Expect From Kindle?
The great thing about kindle is that the possibilities are endless. Want to make an extra thousand per month? Done. How about 3k? Done. What If you want to quit your job and make six figures from publishing? That is absolutely achievable. The amount of money is determined by how much time you put into it and how many books you have. The more books the more money you’ll make.
So, if a book costs me $55 to make (written and cover), how much can I expect from that? The minimum that I expect a book to make me is $50 per month. This means that after the first month that your book is live you will break even. The next month you will turn a profit of $50 and so on.
At $50 per month profit per book, how many books would you make?
If you had 20 books, that would be $1000 per month on average. $50 per book is a conservative number. Some will end up making a bit less but some will make a lot more. I have 3 books that made me 2k last month. I spent $300 to make these 3 books and they are making 2k each month. Not a bad return right?
Just imagine if I had 10x the books. If 3 are making 2k, then how much would 30 books make? That would leave a very nice deposit in my bank account at the end of the month.
Now don’t expect your books to make hundreds of dollars each month. I’ve been doing this for a long time now and I know what works well. When I first started I aimed to make $50 each month from each book. This worked very well, and within 4 months I was making around 6k.
Again, I’m not doing this to brag. I’m doing this to show you the potential that is in front of us. Right now is a huge opportunity to make a lot of money with kindle and I’d recommend you take action immediately.
How Can I Learn About Publishing?
There’s 2 different options for learning this process. The first is to jump right into it and see what works using trial and error. I would highly advise against this because you will lose money. You will also waste a lot of time learning the process, and time is very valuable. Instead, I would recommend option 2 which is to join a course that will teach you a proven system that already works. By learning from people who have already failed and found what works, you will learn 10x faster and make 10x the money in the end. I took approach 2 and I definitely don’t regret it.
Over the past couple years I’ve spent thousands of dollars learning different kindle strategies from multiple courses. What I’ve done is I took all the best strategies and combined them into my own kindle training course called Self Publishing Assignment. Click here to check out my free kindle mini series.
This course is geared towards fiction books and will walk you step by step through the process.
I really hope I’ve convinced you to check out kindle publishing. I’m sharing this with you because it has changed my life completely and I know it can do the same for you.
