One of the most popular questions we receive each week is: “How do I sell more Kindle ebooks?” Here’s the short answer: to sell more Kindle ebooks, have more Kindle ebooks to sell.
I just checked the Kindle store. Some 82,000 Kindle ebooks were published in the past 30 days. That’s a lot of competition for attention. Today, it’s not easy to sell ebooks if you’ve only got one or two to sell. On a self-publishing forum, an author posted that the top-selling fiction authors had an average of 59 ebooks to sell.
How many ebooks have you published? How many will you publish in 2015? In five short months, this year will be over. What are your publishing plans for 2016?
We talked about time management for writers. There’s a reason I hammer: write more. I’ve been hammering that suggestion for over a decade. Today you can make ridiculous sums as a writer — but only if you’re a demon of productivity.
Most of the writers who ask “How do I sell more Kindle ebooks?” are good writers. They just haven’t faced the reality.
Here’s the reality. It doesn’t matter how good a writer you are. It matters how much you publish. If you publish consistently — and if you publish good ebooks, they will sell. And then, Amazon’s algorithms will kick in and will help you to sell even more ebooks.
Publish more, make more
Although it sounds simple, the fact is that it isn’t. It’s a real challenge. Not because writing itself is hard. What’s hard is planting your rear end in a chair and tapping at the keyboard.
