Présentation de l'éditeur

                    “Three hat tips to Michael Alvear’s Make A Killing On Kindle!”

                              -- Guy Kawasaki, quoting this book in his entrepreneurial bestseller, APE.


“I insist that all my clients read this book before they publish-- and I have thousands of clients.”

                              -- Kimberly Hitchens, Owner www.booknook. biz, an Amazon-preferred ebook conversion specialist.


                    “The best I’ve seen on the subject of selling books on Kindle.”

                              -- The consensus among nearly 300 reviews of this book (see below)


This Book Is Designed For Writers Who Don’t Understand Technology Or Marketing.

There are only 12 steps to successful Kindle selling and I show you how to do each of them with step-by-step directions, including picture tutorials. You’ll learn how to:

Rank On Page 1 Of Amazon’s Search Engine Within 24 Hours.

You can’t be bought if you can’t be found. As an SEO expert I’ve gotten every one of my books on Page 1 of Amazon’s search results, and I’m going to show you how you can do it, too. The secret is using Amazon’s little-known “Leading Indicators,” a series of clues that tell you exactly what keyword phrases people use to find books like yours.

Sell More Books On Kindle By Formatting Your Page To Look Like A Million Bucks (Before Taxes).

I’ll show you simple ways to dress up your page using color and font styles like italicize, bold, and underline so that it'll read better, look better and communicate value. Just copy/paste the code in my book and you’re done.

More Things You’ll Learn about Kindle Publishing & Marketing.

This guide will show you how to:

  • Come up with must-click book titles.
  • Pick the right categories.
  • Pick from five of the most effective launch prices.
  • Test post-launch prices.
  • Get reviews that make people want to buy your book.
  • Use the Look Inside Feature to sell more books on Kindle.

Read Vivid Case Studies Of How I Turned My Client’s Underperforming Books Into Bestsellers.

I’m a book marketing consultant as well as a successful independent author. See how I used the principles of my Attract•Engage•Convert book marketing strategy to dramatically increase sales of basement-dwelling titles (the authors and publishers allowed me to use their real names).

Find Out How Many Books Your Competitors Are Selling!

I commissioned a statistician to develop a formula showing daily sales for every book on Amazon. Just check your competitor’s sales rank then look at the chart in Chapter 15--it’ll tell you how many books they sold that day!

This Book Will Save You From The Time Sucking, No-Value Vortex Of Blogging, Facebook and Twitter.

I will show you convincing industry research that social media is the least effective way to sell books on Kindle.

About The Author. As word got out that I sold over 100,000 ebooks, authors and publishers flocked to me for advice, attracted to the methodical ways I turned guerilla marketing tactics into stellar revenue. These strategies work for me, they work for my clients, and they will work for you. Believe in your books. Nobody believed in mine and now I make a great living as a writer. You can too by following my formula.

Ecrie un livre, c'est facile ;-)

Le vendre, ce n'est pas à la portée de tout le monde. Il faut changer de point de vue et d'esprit. Ce n'est plus l'auteur qui doit se mettre en avant, mais le vendeur. Et devenir vendeur, cela s'apprend.

Ce livre vous apprendra comment le faire pour que votre livre trouve son public et que votre public soit content, vous remercie, et vous offre l'opportunité d'écrire d'autres livres.

Que dire... ce n'est pas terrible, rien n'est vraiment révélé qu'on ne puisse trouver ailleurs gratuitement. Et le fond de l'histoire, c'est qu'on vous explique que pour avoir du succès comme auteur dans l'empire Kindle, il faut faire exactement ce qu'à fait l'auteur de cet ebook : rassembler quelques infos, les mettre en page correctement et les convertir au format Kindle. Le contenu est important, mais la forme bien plus, tout comme le savoir faire de convertir un texte en ebook. Hum. OK. Thanks. Bye.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Chapter 6 is BOGUS info - Chapters 8 & 14 are worth WAY MORE than the whole book - & the other chapters are great too! 29 juillet 2012
Par Author Ronda Del Boccio - Publié sur

What author doesn't want more sales? This book is filled with many actionable and reliable pieces of advice that can improve results on Kindle and frankly also for indie print books as well.

I have some raves and some BOOs.

OK the bad first.

Chapter 6 - forget it. Skip it entirely. The author should just plain REMOVE IT.

You can't put "as the author of..." with a clickable link in an amazon review. They'll pull it down. Amazon gets very touchy about this even though they should be glad because any clickable item mention makes them money. Go figure, but there it is.

I DO agree - and I tell my mentees this - that reviewing competitors books is a good thing, because people who like and read those books will also likely want yours. I've never known books bout the same topic to have fights on bookshelves or rip up kindle readers from the inside out. Who doesn't own several books on a similar topic.

So reviewing books makes sense, as described in Chapter 6, but do not try linking to your own book.

Chapter 11 likewise suggests something I'm quite sure would put you on Amazon's naughty list.

Reviews are important. Come by them honestly. If you have a small circle of friends, ask them to each write a review and say the other friends' reviews are helpful. The anatomy of a good review in this chapter is sound.

NOW on to the FANTASTIC parts of this book.

Chapter 8 teaches something I have seen nowhere else, and I truly shouted WOOHOO! Woke the dog. Startled the cats. Yep! Positively brilliant and very useful. Worth the price of admission for sure!

The techniques for the title, cover, and research are rock solid and definitely I would follow all of that to the letter.

Chapter 14 shows you how many books you're likely to sell at various sales ranks. This takes the mystery out of sales.

Following most of what the author suggests definitely sets you on the path to sales success with your book. I highly recommend the book to any author.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Some Good Info, Bad Info and Missing Info 17 août 2012
Par Sandy Bose - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
This book was loaned to me. I found some of the information about social networking, titling, keyword research, categories etc to be very helpful. But the advice on getting reviews and inserting your book link into a review for another book could get you in hot water with Amazon. So I'd be careful there. Also, if you want to format your book page with bold characters, bigger fonts, bullet lists etc all you have to do is create an Author Central account, add or claim the book as yours and edit the description page. You don't have to touch HTML code to accomplish that. Finally, when talking about book promotion you can enter your book into KDP for 90 days. If you do that you get 5 days where you can set your book to free. This can be a great way to get downloads that expose your book to readers. It can also translate to sales when you come off promo. But the other thing missing in this book is the powerhouse sites where you can list your book's free days. For example, if EreaderNewsToday or Pixel of Ink list your book on its free days it can REALLY translate into significant sales after your book comes off of promo.

So I gave this book a 3 star review because it has some good information, some bad information and it was also missing some helpful information for authors.

I have a hard time recommending this book. I'm sure that the stratigies that Michael Alvear shares in this book may help someone, but I can't do it. He advises driving up your sales with reviews, which I understand...if the reviews were real. Alvear doesn't seem to care about real, though. He advises you to have your friends and family write reviews for you, or worse, tells you that maybe you should open several fake accounts on amazon and write your reviews yourself. That's just dishonest, and borders on lying to your customers. I have a couple of fiction books out myself, and whereas I don't have alot of reviews (about 7 per book) they're at least real reviews and most are good ones (one for my lastest release almost drove me into a review orgasm!). He even suggests that you write reviews for other books with the express purpose of linking the review to your book (which is against Amazon's rules). To me that's hijacking your customers. Plus I think it could seriously damage your career in the long run if you were to get caught writing your own reviews (not to mention the embarrassment). Instead, look in to goodreads groups for Read to Review threads. You give away a few gift codes and in a week or two you get that many, for good or bad, honest reviews. If you set your book price to $.99 for a week you can give away 10 books and get 10 reviews for $10. Not bad, and you get REAL reviews. Alot of what Alvear suggests may work for some people, but for the most part it sounds very shady.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good Overall But Some Bad Advice 15 juillet 2012
Par DerrickM - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Overall a good book that goes over what is needed for success publishing on Kindle. There is one section where the author suggests putting an "ad" on others reviews this is against the Amazon TOS under review guidelines

What is not allowed:

* Sentiments by or on behalf of a person or company with a financial interest in the product or a directly competing product (including reviews by publishers, manufacturers, or third-party merchants selling the product)

As the author and publisher you clearly have a financial interest in the product(your book) and you are the publisher. This is clear as day that this is not an approved tactic that could very well risk your account.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Ambiguous Morality, but the Information is Worth the Price 14 septembre 2012
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I have to say the title of this book enticed me. While How To Make a Killing on Kindle provided excellent information in several areas, I'm taking some advice with a grain of salt. Here are my impressions:

1. Great nitty gritty information I have not seen elsewhere.

Alvear describes a number of different techniques to improve the placement of ebooks.

Some of these, such as optimizing seo terms in the book description and title, may be useful for sellers across all platform.

While others are specifically geared for Amazon: interpreting sale numbers from rank position, choosing the right categories, and adding formatting to descriptions. And that last one, is a whole lot more complicated than I could've imagined.

2. Some techniques are morally ambiguous.

In one chapter Alvear recommends writing book reviews of your competitors with comments like "As the writer of blah blah blah" in the first three lines.

Personally when I see this I find it to be obnoxious.

He also highly recommends everyone acquire five to six reviews. Alvear leaves it up to the readers to as to whether to recruit a friend or to write the reviews themselves.

As a book reviewer I find this to be rather tacky.

While I understand it's a business and there are surely overlooked books out there, if a book doesn't naturally provoke good reviews then it needs to go back to the drawing board. There are so many reviewers like myself happy to provide a service.

Writing a review yourself says that the book/cover/description/hook needs work, and that the author needs to build relationships with potential readers. Writing your own reviews is an act of desperation, not a task to complete in hour number ten.

3. I'm unconvinced about ditching the blog.

Alvear says since only 10% of people have an e-reader, any advertisement aimed at the general public will flop.

The thing is e-readers are just starting, but the number of users will continue to grow. Hello, Christmas presents.

Also this advice is specifically aimed at people who will only sell their books online. Personally I plan to offer both digital and print copies. I like the way books weigh in my hands and smell, and ohhh it's a romance, me and books. In that case the paperbacks will be more expensive to buy, but yes, all blog readers could still enjoy it.

Even if you are e-publishing only, there is a lot to be said for coming off as a real person. Blogs allow people to check you out, decide if they want to listen to your advice, and connect. I love my blog for the friendship element in this cold internet sea.

But yeah I'd probably have another book written if I didn't blog. Oh well.

4. Moral and philosophy issues aside, most of the content is useful.

Even if a writer refuses a tool for moral reasons, it's good to be aware that writers out there might do it. This book is an eyeopener to tactics I found to be untraditional.

In order to compete, Kindle authors need to have attractive descriptions, to have books that can be found, and to understand the market. Where they get their reviews is their problem.

Other than those two points of the book-- reviews and blogs-- everything else is fine. While the search terms explanation will probably be more applicable to nonfiction writers, it's a really useful book for anyone planning to sell on Kindle.

For five dollars, I'd say this is worth it.
