This episode of the Professional Content Creation Podcast was inspired by one of my clients. In addition to offering Kindle editing and formatting services, I also provide Kindle consultation phone calls.
As I was recently going over the various Kindle publishing options with one of my clients, the thought came to me that my podcast listeners may find the information helpful in case they want to submit their eBook to Kindle on their own. Listen in if you need to know what all the options inside the KDP dashboard mean!
Items discussed in this episode include:
- The ins and outs of the KDP Select program
- How you can increase your income by giving your book away for free
- How letting people borrow your Kindle book for free can make you money
- Title restrictions
- Why you don’t need to worry about your Kindle book’s publication date
- How easy it is to be a publisher
- Selecting categories and keywords
- Tips for your Kindle book cover
- The ONE thing you can’t change after your Kindle book is published
- What Digital Rights Management means
- Why you may want people to be able to illegally share your Kindle book
- The different royalty options
- Important things to keep in mind when inputting contributors
- And more!
As promised, below is a slideshow with the main points. Feel free to refer to it when the time comes to upload your own Kindle book. You are also free to embed the slideshow on your blog by clicking on the share button and copying the embed code. Enjoy!
