Truths About Kindle Direct Publishing Experts Won’t Tell You
Kindle Direct Publishing experts are everywhere at this point. You’ve probably run across a handful yourself.
They make it sound so easy too. Publish an Ebook on Amazon, get some reviews, Put it up on a free promotion and watch the Amazon KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing) engine do its magic.
Then they show their students making anywhere between $3000 and $10,000 a month in passive income! What could be easier!?!
They sell that anyone, with any skill set, can easily generate a great passive income from simply having a Kindle account with a few Ebooks published.
I’ve now been using Kindle Direct Publishing for about 6 months now. At the time of this writing, I’ve got 8 books published but am still ‘in the red’ as to money I’ve invested. I’ve gone through the entire process of creating, marketing, and gathering reviews. Looking back I want to share the things that I’ve learned that the experts didn’t tell me and the things that surprised me so you’ll have a leg up if you decide to start.
Just for the record, I agree with the experts to a certain extent, this article is not to bash them left and right. Anyone can make money with Amazon KDP. But there are a handful of topics that tend to be exaggerated, or glazed over when covered in most of the courses, books, and information products I’ve seen.
