How to Make Your Amazon Kindle eBook a Best Seller in Just 5 Days

How to Make Your Amazon Kindle eBook a Best Seller in Just 5 Days

Being the creator of an eBook grants you the power to promote and sell your own content. An eBook can be a powerful tool, and when used correctly, is a great way to bring in some steady recurring income.

When I created my first eBook, it felt like a huge accomplishment, something I could finally put my name on and do with what I pleased.

Anyone can create an eBook, you don’t have to be a literary genius, just a decent grasp of the English language and a spell/grammar checker will do.

An eBook isn’t an earn cash fast scheme, it is something to be slowly chipped away at over time. Imagine the potential of making one eBook every month?

It is important to have realistic ambitions, setting a goal of 1 hour of writing every 2-3 days would make sufficient progress.

 

How to Promote your eBook Successfully on Amazon

I have come across many articles from people claiming they can tell you what it takes to make it to number 1 on the Amazon bestsellers eBook list. After reading a little further down these posts they tell you they can make £1000 or so in the first week and never mention the exciting statement from the start in their post again. But £1000 in the first week is a more realistic outcome that we are going to aim for.

To get your ebook noticed and ranked as popular in Amazon, in the first few days you must offer it for free.

We do this through the Kindle Direct Publishing Select Program.

Research from Digital Book Today tells us that the best days to do a free eBook promotion on Amazon are Sundays and Mondays.

 

Prior to these days, or on the day I recommend you ask your family and friends to review your eBook for you, this is sure to give it more attention.

Now you need to promote the eBook like crazy while its free, as this will definitely entice a customer to download your content. In doing so we will rack up ratings and boost its overall popularity.

 

Here are some popular websites where we can promote free kindle books:

  1. Author Marketing Club – A directory of easy to fill out forms.
  2. Snickslist
  3. Addicted to ebooks
  4. Kindleboards.com
  5. Pixel of Ink
  6. Bargain Book Hunter
  7. EReader News Today
  8. Free Booksy
  9. Free Book Dude
  10. Ebook Lister
  11. Free Books Hub
  12. Frugal Freebies
  13. Hundred Zeros
  14. Totally Free Stuff
  15. Reddit (relevant forums and freebies forums)
  16. BlackHatForum
  17. OzBargain (- Must use an australian IP address)
  18. FatWallet
  19. SlickDeals
  20. I Crave Freebies

Promote on Social Media

Prior to the freebie promotion, you’ll want to prepare your social media.

Facebook groups

Find as many groups as you can which offer ‘freebies’ or ‘free ebooks’ and such in the title, and request to join them. You can use a Facebook mass group joiner and post scheduling tool like Octosuite to make the process a lot easier.

Here are a few Facebook groups to get started with:

Do your hashtag # research that is relevant to your ebook. Here are some to start off with: #Amazon #eBook #KPD (Kindle Publishing Direct) #FreeKindleReads #BookBuzzr #BookMarketing #Kindle #KindleBargain #BookGiveaway #WLCFreeToday

Find Twitter users who you think will be willing to promote your ebook, note their names down to @ them when you start to promote the free ebook. Choose people relevant to your niche, ebook promoters or anyone who promotes free stuff.

 

Here are some twitter users we can give an @ to:

@freebookclub1 @kindlestuff @KindleDaily @ibdbookoftheday @Booksontheknob @CheapKindleDly @digitalinktoday @kindle_free @Kindle_promo @bookbub @freeebooksdaily @zilchebooks @freedailybooks @fkbt  @Bookyrnextread @DigitalBkToday @free @freebookdude @4FreeKindleBook @IndAuthorSucess @IndieKindle @KindleFreeBook

Pricing your eBook

After 5 days of a free promotion, you should have gained popularity and some nice ratings (depending on your content).

Bestselling eBooks have a price range between £0.75 and £6.95.

I recommend £2.99 as an affordable price to pay, but it’s up to you.

To Sum up

If you’re thinking of publishing and selling a kindle eBook through Amazon, you should always do it through the KDP Select service first as it will get your eBook noticed and rated.

When the five days are over, its popularity during the 5 free days should have propelled it into the top most popular kindle eBooks on Amazon.

The Passive Fiverr Income System – Using PLR products as services – ‘I will teach you how to…’

The Passive Fiverr Income System – Using PLR products as services – ‘I will teach you how to…’

Fiverr is a popular website where you can buy or sells services for just $5. The products range from business start up gear like graphics, promotions and logos, to paranormal services like psychic predictions, healing powers and so on.

Lately I’ve been researching into the use of PLR packages as a way to boost income on the side, and I’m going to share with you an exciting method I found which uses Fiverr gigs to sell PLR.

This method has a lot of potential because of the quantity of the gigs you’re allowed, which is unlimited we can have multiple accounts on Fiverr. Though it is more profitable in the long-run to write your own material, or just reword PLR material, this method means we can sell an unlimited amount of material.

You will be selling informative resources, which are zipped up and ready to go. All you have to do, is create the gigs, then spend 10-15 minutes a day checking your accounts.

These resources come in the form of articles, tutorial videos and guidebooks, and none of them violate any terms of service. None of these items will be made by you, as will be selling PLR products.

PLR stands for Private Label Rights, which means you can resell the item, edit it and all the proceeds go to you.

It is important to read the licensing instructions in every PLR package you find, as some request you not to edit, but most are fine. You should also be checking over how the articles are written, and edit if needed.

For free PLR, you can’t depend on them to be very well written, but there are also paid membership sites which give you access to better free packages. If you don’t mind paying per package, you’ll find higher quality PLR often at a very small cost, usually between $1-4. On Fiverr you can find them in their thousands for $5.

A few websites you can try out for PLR is:

http://www.bugabong.com – You’ll find surprisingly high quality free PLR here.

http://www.fiverr.com -search for PLR articles. –Excellent value for money, but the content will need assessing.

http://www.idplr.com free registration, 500 free products

https://www.plrassassin.com free membership

http://www.master-resell-rights.com -Sell good bundles

http://www.theplrstore.com/plr-articles – Very cheap!

How to Word your Fiverr Gig

You should look at every aspect of your description as a sales pitch. If you want to sell your item, take advice from Tom Hopkins in his article Arouse Emotions, Don’t Sell Logic, he tells us that:

“Positive emotions trigger sales; negative emotions destroy sales.”

So you need to excite your buyer, and to do that you should tell them what they can achieve with your valuable information.

 

Your Title

Your title needs to be creative, do not say that you will provide them with an ebook, but rather you will teach them a method.

For instance: I Will Teach You How To [insert PLR package theme] for $5.

The idea here is to make the gig sound more special and exciting than just ‘I Will Send You an Ebook on XYZ.’

Remember that all the customer wants to know is: How can this product help me?

It is important to word the title in a way that states it provides something desirable for that type of person.

 

Your Description

You’ll need to persuade the buyer with a positive and engaging description. Make sure you use the formatting options, highlighting in bold your most important and enticing information. 😉

One killer move is to advertise something that you’ll throw in with the order for free. You could also advertise the listing as buy 1 get 1 free.

 

Creating a Cover Photo

You will need to create cover photo for your gig, if you don’t have any graphic design skills and don’t want to pay for the kit, you can use:

Canva             Skitch             Pablo              Picmonkey                 Be Funky

 

Tags

You can choose up to 5 tags, make sure they are relevant to the product you are selling, don’t overuse a word, try a thesaurus if you get stuck.

The Duration

1 day deliveries will make your gig show up more in the search listings and all you have to do is click to send item each day. But it depends on how often you want to check the Fiverr account.

 

Instructions For the Buyer:

You don’t have to bother with instructions, but you can possibly throw in another freebie gig to show them that you value their custom. This goes down a treat on Fiverr.

Now your gig is complete.

You will receive a notification email when someone wants to buy your gig, make sure your settings are correct and that emails go to your mobile phone so that you can respond to buyers promptly.

Now repeat this process.

Change the description and graphics accordingly and max out to your maximum gig limit which is 20.

After you reach 20, create a new account, then do the same thing, and so on.

As you may have already guessed, each account would ideally be revolved around a specific niche. I.e. health and fitness, internet marketing, parenting, mental health, writing etc. Basically any niche that works as a service.

It isn’t a good idea to rush into this, it is better to slowly add these gigs on each day.

You will only see sales if you max out your gigs as much as possible. The sales will be gradual but eventually will become a great part of your recurring income.

It is also helpful to keep track of how well some gigs do compared to others, and make better choices for your business down the line.

Keep an eye out for methods other than Fiverr to sell your strategies. Such as:

seoclerks.com

gigbucks.com/

fourerr.com/

pin.redlr.com/

So you have the options to make this a big business, but it won’t get far if you don’t put in the hard work of making multiple gigs.

You may come across research like how to achieve success on Fiverr by using software that racks up a view count for your gig – although I have never used them, my research concludes that Fiverr is very good at cracking down on fraudulent activity, so I advise not to use them in case your account gets banned.

Summary:

This passive product is one of the easiest ways to make money on fiverr. As you can see all it requires is getting your hands on some PLR content that you can distribute as a service.

Anyone can get started on Fiverr with this tutorial as it takes no expertise whatsoever, you can easily begin a business today.

Please share this method with your friends and family!

How To Separate Buyers From Non Buyers

How To Separate Buyers From Non Buyers

There are two important things to remember if you want your business to thrive:

1. The amount of exposure you give it

2. The appeal of your website to the visitor

First impressions are important, and because your business doesn’t have any form of personal contact, the image of the business plays a big part in it’s success rate. And so we have various tools we can use for the overall image, such as informative resources and analytical research that can help to establish trust between the client and supplier.

Get to know your target market

Researching into demographics will help to aim the item in the right direction and gain suitable attention for it.

Assess the items popularity

You should look into the items popularity, which can be done through checking how well it sells on shopping sites like eBay and Amazon.

Gain trust

There are certain things to consider that can comfort a buyer when they are deciding to purchase a product. These include the quantity, substantial availability, whether they are easily obtainable and the type of advertising which originally led them to the product.

We can also use tools that have been designed to keep track of the customers, their interest rates and product popularity. These features are already included in Shopify, eBay and Amazon.

The non-buyers will most likely be looking for the cheapest deals you have, which may not result in a purchase.

People who are browsing specifically to make a purchase are searching for the most relevant and interesting items you have on display. This type of buyer is more likely to read all of the information available.

Targeting these types of buyers can be done through niche marketing. To research for a lucrative niche you can use google adwords, and search for key phrases, identifying its CPC (cost per click) rate and competition. You can also use Google to see the amount of results your keyword uses.

For Example:

It is important to try out the items and see which do well with varying target markets.

Arranging a feedback module is important for the future success rate of an item. Some online shops like Shopify have a rating system for the customers to use.

It is also worth requesting feedback in a purchase confirmation email or an email reminder as many customers may forget to give feedback as their needs are already fulfilled. However it is important to not harrass a customer with emails, one way to avoid this is to give the customer a choice of email frequency.

Once you are an experienced seller, you should be aware of all the tactics you can employ to differentiate a buyer from a non-buyer and target them.

For those who seek professional help with marketing their e-commerce store, Make Them Buy is a coaching strategy with Dr Glenn Livingston whose creative market research has been published in the New York Times and the Los Angeles times. He has also worked with household names including American Express, Panasonic, Colgate, Unilever, Kodak and Burger King. The course provides marketing consulting based on 5 Principle Pillars of Persuasion customised to help you increase your conversions.

They also have live interactive monthly webinars where group members can share success tips and provide feedback for each other. At only $9.95 a month with a 60 day money back guarantee, so there’s no harm in testing the product out.

How to Create Your Loyalty Program and Keep Buyers Coming Back

How to Create Your Loyalty Program and Keep Buyers Coming Back

The main use of a loyalty program is to provide an incentive to spend more, it results in repeat purchases and can build a relationship between you and your customers, making them feel happy to pay visits to your site.

Providing as many incentives as possible to your audience will add value to what you’re supplying. Loyalty programs will let the customer know that the merchant wants to build a relationship with them and make them an integral part of their business.

A reward scheme is a sure way to entice a customer to return as they are aware that their past purchases will have earned points to make a discount for their next purchase.

Fee

Create an advertisement for your loyalty scheme or membership, listing all the benefits the program provides. When the customer follows the link, charge the customer upfront with a one-time payment or a less expensive monthly payment.

Tailor Made

A great idea is to tailor a customer’s loyalty program based on information such as a customer’s buying patterns.

What to include in a loyalty program:

  • Introductory discounts

  • Discounts for buying before an item is in stock

  • Purchase level rewards (spend over £40 get £2.50 off)

  • Ebate cashback rewards for different spending levels

  • Upgrades or special advantages

  • Using information that is not-for-profit, so that a customer isn’t constantly confronted with products.

 

Loyalty Cards

If you don’t want to get too overloaded with different loyalty schemes, stamps are a simple yet lucrative method to use with a loyalty card.

A recent breakthrough study conducted by professors Joseph Nunes and Xavier Dreze showed that we are more inclined to fill up our stamp card when we are given a head start. The study was titled ‘The Endowed Progress Effect’, it involved giving 300 customers loyalty cards at a car wash, if they filled up their stamps, they got a free car wash. Each half were given two different stamp cards, one with 8 stamps and the other with 10 stamps but two had already been marked off for them.

After a certain amount of time, the results showed that 19% of the 8 stamp group returned however 34% of the 10 stamp group filled their stamp card. This shows that even though the amount of stamps to be filled were the same, people preferred getting a seemingly large head start whereas the 8 stamp group may have thought they had to make more efforts to fill the loyalty card.

If you don’t have the experience working with graphics, there are softwares that can do this for you. For example the Easy Graphics App creates attractive loyalty cards, coupons, flyers, business cards and more from scratch.

3 Ways Blogging can Boost your Business

3 Ways Blogging can Boost your Business

Blogging for your business will attract more visitors and give substance to your brand. Despite working hard to build the business, it will not be as much of a success if you miss out on this opportunity.

Today, more and more businesses are getting ahead of the competition all because of blogging. Gone are the days when blogging just meant writing a Dear Diary post on the Internet. Blogs can be about anything at all, with both objective and subjective styles of writing.

A blog will help to increase sales and the post can also be specifically about the product. You can also promote your business through other people’s blogs, this is one of the best online methods to boost your business. Rather than having your own blog to create and keep updating, you can create a post for different blogs which already have great exposure.

I recommend that you look for blogs that cater to the same niche your business provides for. It won’t be hard to get started, as there are millions of blogs to choose from.

 

Three Ways Blogging for Business Brings Success

1. Quick Brand Recognition

Marketing your business to the correct target customer base is vital to your success. If you’re writing for another person’s blog, you should try to post interesting, useful information and keep the subject matter tied closely to your company’s products. It is best to avoid promoting the shop too much as it can alienate the reader with advertising.

If you aren’t able to feature directly on a blog, it is useful to add a comment and provide a signature mentioning your businesses website, which is a subtle way of attracting attention. By doing these small things, they can make a big impact when it comes to spreading awareness of your brand. It is also quite a quick way to get started which doesn’t have to take up too much time, up to 1 hour a day will suffice.

2. Consumer Reviews

One popular way businesses advertise is by hiring a blogger to write a review of their product. This method takes the least amount of time and provides the product with a ready-made audience.

Simply search for bloggers who write about the same niche as your product and contact them using details they supply on their website. It is better to use ones who have written about products in the past as they will most likely want to write for you. Another option is to advertise your product through a site that consists only of product reviews.

3. Building Relationships

Networking online has never been so easy, and a successful business owner should know that helping hands are extremely beneficial. We can network easily in the blogging community, but if you do blog regularly and care for the appearance of your business, bloggers will be more willing to work with you. There are already many established relationships in the blogging community, and one relationship may lead onto another.

Communication is the key, because if you don’t ask, you don’t get. It also doesn’t have to cost money, some bloggers will offer to swap advertising space for no fee at all. Bloggers are very useful for businesses and can provide a decent percentage of profit. Once your business has worked with one blog, you will have the experience to make you a trusted partner for any future blog feature requests.
