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

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.

As a Kindle book author I can tell you Steve Scott is right on the money with many of the ideas he presents in this book.

KDP Free Days aren't what they used to be. Six months ago I consistently had 2500 to 4500 downloads for each of my book launches; today 500 to 1000 is a strong number. I'm not sure if it's a summer slowdown, or a shift in people downloading free books. Time will tell.

Scott suggests that 99 cents is the new free. That may be possible. I will agree with his theory that giving your books away for free can draw the wrong audience. Most often your one and two star reviews come from readers who down loaded the book for free. Many of these reviews start out like this, "It's not really the kind of book I normally read," or "I didn't really read the whole thing, because it wasn't what I thought it would be..."

Perhaps the best advice you can take from the book; track your sales everyday; make notes of special promos you're running or free days. This is the only way you will know what works and what doesn't.

For me, I'm not ready to give up my KDP Free Days, but I don't use them after the launch for all of my books. Free days don't seem to drive sales in the business and ecommerce categories after the initial giveaway. My history books are just the opposite. I can easily drive 100 or 200 more sales within three to four weeks of running another free promo. In the business category, 99 cent promos seem to work better to reinvigorate lagging sales.


Quick follow up two weeks after reading and reviewing this.

Based on the eBay and Kindle writing category, Kindle author's have taken Scott's advice to heart. Dozens of authors used the 99 cent price to vault their books to the top spots. What surprises me is, two weeks later they're still at that price. The idea was to use the 99 cent price to reinvigorate your book, not to drag the market price down.

Just putting it out there. Anybody else have an idea on this?

How to Sell Kindle Books is an overcrowded field, but Steve delivers useful and tested information. His conversational style is easy to follow and an example to us all.
My one mild criticism may be wrong, but I think authors in the hyper competitive areas overestimate the marketing problem. I see plenty of older books, published without any knowledge of e-books doing really well. Finding your niche and being a genuine authority solves many problems, but we all need a jump start. Thanks Steve.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the best ebook marketing books I've read in a long time! 13 août 2013
Par Mark LeGrand Messick - Publié sur

As a Kindle author who relies on his books as his main source of income, I have read quite a few books about Kindle marketing -- and this was definitely one of the best books I have read on ebook marketing in a long, long time.

Nowadays there are hundreds of books about ebook marketing and most of them contain the same old principles: run a blog, utilize social media, yada, yada, yada. This book was not like that. It actually has innovative, never-before-seen marketing principles that every single author should utilize.

I have read quite a few of Steve's books before and I want him to know that they're all extraordinary, but that this one was extra good -- one of the best he's ever written. Thanks Steve, you're totally the best!

I would highly, highly, recommend this book to anyone who is serious about marketing their Kindle books -- and I'm not just saying that -- this is definitely a must-have for every author!

As an author with about 20 books in the Kindle market, I found this book quite useful. Being short and to the point with only about 30 pages of important content, it didn't waste my time. Being such a low price, I'm certain that what I learned here will repay my investment hundreds of times over.
