How to make money by selling articles on Amazon
Are you a writer? Do you regularly write blog posts? Why not turn those articles into short read ebooks and sell them on Amazon. There are many benefits of doing this, including more money! Read this post to learn more about this strategy.
Amazon short reads is the best opportunity to make money now.
Amazon has made it easier for all authors to earn money by publishing their books on the platform. All you need to do is write an article and submit it for publication on Amazon. This article will be published as a short read ebook and can be sold at any price you want.
The best part about this is that you don't have to spend any money on marketing or advertising your book. Everything is done by Amazon itself so that readers can find your book easily. You also don't have to worry about printing, shipping or customer support because everything is handled by Amazon itself.
Amazon short reads is the best opportunity to make money now.
The Amazon short reads program is a new way for authors to earn royalties on their writing. It's a great opportunity for authors to make money and get their work out there.
Here are twelve reasons why you should turn articles into short reads and sell them on Amazon:
1. You can make money from your content without having to write an entire book.
You save time. Instead of having to write an entire book, you can put your effort into creating a condensed version of your article.
2. It is easy to create an ebook from an article, blog post or web page, especially if you use software like iWriter or WordAi to help you with the formatting.
In the past, creating an ebook required a lot of time and effort. You had to format it with your own images, create a cover, etc. And then you had to distribute it to the online stores (Apple, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo) and promote your book on social media.
No longer. Now there are online tools like iWriter that will automatically format your content into an ebook for you and post it for sale on all the major online stores. They even provide the cover free of charge! The only thing left for you to do is market and promote your ebook on social media just like you would any other product or service.
3. Amazon pays up front for your ebooks, so there is no waiting (or worrying) about royalties as with traditional publishers.
Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) program allows you to self-publish your own ebooks and have them available for immediate purchase on Amazon. This is unlike traditional publishing, where you send your manuscript to a publisher, who then hires an editor and typesetter to work with the manuscript, performs copy editing and formatting, then submits it to printing presses and warehouses. Then they sell it to bookstores and let you know when they've sold a certain number of copies. They send you royalties every six months, but if you're unenthused about waiting so long to get paid, this can be frustrating.
In contrast, with KDP you can publish your ebook immediately to Amazon for sale. You don't have to wait for an editor or typesetter or anyone else—this is all on you! All that's necessary is that your manuscript is formatted properly (which isn't too hard—you'll just need some basic HTML knowledge), and according to Amazon's guidelines. You then set the price of your book yourself, from free up to $9.99 (Amazon will take 30% of the list price if it's below $2.99). If someone buys your book at $2.99, the royalty percentage is 70%, which means that you get 70% of the sold books.
4. You reach a broader audience. Articles are read by a variety of types of people, but books are more directed at specific kinds of readers.
5. You control how much people pay for your work, which means that you can charge less than a paperback book but still make good money per sale!
People will always pay more for a physical object than they would for an ebook. After all, the person who buys your book is paying not just for the content, but also for the convenience of having it in an easy-to-read format, delivered to them instantly. It also takes up less shelf space and can be read whenever and wherever they'd like. And let's not forget that ebooks are typically cheaper to make than paperbacks, so you can price yours at a fraction of the cost of a physical copy without losing any money.
So what does that mean for you? Well, it means you can charge less than a paperback book but still make good money per sale! When you're pricing your ebook or audiobook, keep this in mind: people don't care about the cost of getting your work from you. They only care about what it costs them to get your work. You're selling entertainment, not transportation. It might feel weird at first to charge less than $10 for something that took months, years or a couple hours (don't tell your audience this) to create, but remember that this is going to be worth more to your audience when they feel they've made a bargain, but the truth is, you have.
6. You don't have to wait for anyone else's approval before making money from your content, which means that you can start earning right away (and start getting feedback on your writing).
All you need is the ability to write a good, clear advertisement with some persuasive language, and you can create and sell an ebook about anything in about ten minutes. The process is straightforward.
7. You make more money. Books generally sell for more than articles online, and thousands are earning everyday in short reads on Amazon.
8. You create something that has a lasting value. People can keep and refer back to your books years or even decades later, while articles are usually forgotten quickly because they're easily accessible online.
9. You can build an email list. By including information in your book or ebook that encourages people to sign up for your email list, you increase the number of people who know about you and the influence you have on the internet.
10. You get free publicity. If your article ebook is good enough, it may be picked up by other websites or blogs who will promote it for you, increasing its exposure and page views—and thus the potential for income from advertising or affiliate links within the piece.
11. The Kindle Unlimited program makes it possible for readers to pay only $9 per month and read unlimited books.
The Kindle Unlimited program is an exceptionally good deal. Paying a monthly fee of only $9 allows consumers to have access to the vast Kindle library that has more than 1 million titles. There are also many benefits to be had by authors who publish work through Kindle Unlimited, including:
-Having an opportunity to reach a broader audience because of the number of people who can read their work with the Kindle Unlimited program.
-Authors get paid per page read.
-Kindle Unlimited gives authors the opportunity to receive royalties immediately as opposed to waiting months for royalty checks from publishers.
-It provides increased exposure for their work because of the large amount of people who will see it.
12. Why not?
As individuals we're always exposed to one opportunity or the other, and it is up to us to make a decision to either stand out or continue complaining about our situation. Many have grabbed this opportunity, so don't be late in getting into this train.
I want to reiterate that if you want to get your book to the top of the bestseller list, you still need great content. Some might think that converting an existing text article into short read format is a quick and easy way to make money and put a book out on the market. While it is not a complicated task and does not take weeks of writing, but I would rather use long articles as kindle books than try to convert an article and sell it on Amazon. There are many pros of doing this and there are no cons.
