Today I want to talk briefly about what I believe is going to be a huge key to making money with kindle long-term.
I’ve mentioned this before, but this really needs to be stressed.
It’s the back-end.
If you haven’t set up a back-end for your Kindle books then you’re making a rookie mistake and leaving a lot of potential money on the table.
If you don’t know, let me explain what I mean by the ‘back-end’.
The back-end is basically any interaction you have with your readers after the initial sale. It is your sales funnel.
The initial sale of your book is the ‘front-end’. Everything else is the ‘back-end’.
The back-end normally starts with sending your readers else-where. This usually means getting their email address, starting a dialogue with them, getting them to interact with you on different mediums (Blog, Facebook page, YouTube, Instagram, etc.)
From there, you build a relationship with your readers. You get fans. You suggest affiliate products to them and earn commissions. You sell your own product to them. You monetise in some other way.
This is what I’ve done with one of my personal lists.
The first book I wrote on Kindle Publishing collected email addresses through using a free-giveaway. That may even be how you found this website in the first place.
I recently launched my new Kindle training course, and sent an email to my list about it. In one day I made more off of my list, than I’ve made in 2 months off of the book. And it sells a lot of copies!
P.S. If you haven’t checked out the course, do it NOW! If you want to really be successful with Kindle then jump right in while it’s cheap. It will show you what to do, and you’ll easily be able to make the cost of the course back QUICKLY if you just follow the steps. Head to www.freedomselfpublishing.com and seriously consider it.
The course does cover the back-end in the Full Disclosure membership (Just $38 for your first month – cheap right!) but if you aren’t ready to spend that much just yet, I have just released a book on the topic of making money on the back-end.
This is my 2nd book and you can get it for just $0.99 by heading here: Kindle Publishing: Kindle Publishing Back-End Strategies: How to collect leads, gain followers, and make money on the back-end of your Kindle books!
You can seriously make a lot more money off of the back-end than you do off of your initial Kindle sales. This book explains how, and it goes DEEP with all of the different methods and strategies I recommend.
If you do download it, please take the time to leave an honest review – it’s really appreciated.
If you’re not working on a back-end for your books, then start NOW!
Til next time,
