How to Make Money with Amazon Kindle in 2018

Making Money from Publishing ebooks on Amazon’s Kindle is often “The New Gold Rush” nowadays. But is it really that profitable?

Can you really make money selling Kindle books?

Of course yes!

There are many authors that make MILLIONS off Kindle.

So In this post, I’ll tell you how you can make money publishing e-books on amazon kindle step by step.

Let’s get started,

1Find A Niche for Kindle Book

The First Step in order to create Ebook that generates money is to Find a niche — Without one, your book can become just another title in a sea of options.

By following the steps you can find the niches so that you will be able to find out the things which are already working on the massive bestsellers List & take advantage of it to write a book that will take you to the bestseller list- without having a lot of competition in doing so.

There are three components to find a profitable niche idea:

  1. Demand for your idea on Amazon
  2. Customers willing to spend money on your idea
  3. The competition for your idea is beatable

2Keyword Research

Keywords are the words a shopper uses when looking for a book.

The most common mistake that most self-publishers do — They just write a book, hit publish, cross their fingers and hope it’s a winner.

But this doesn’t gonna work.

So in below steps, I will show you how to do this research for free.

There are also some tools that could help you in making this process easy — we’ll cover that later.

The method which I use for generating a list of popular keywords on Amazon is Amazon auto-suggestion feature.

When you type a phrase into Amazon, you will notice that it begins to suggest endings to your search phrase. This is because Amazon is trying to guess what you might be looking for by using past search data of other shoppers.

Well, The above steps don’t tell you how popular they are– they only tell you that people type this into Amazon.

If you’d like to know how many people type those words into Amazon, you’d need to use a tool like KDP Rocket.

IMPORTANT: It’s best that you use incognito mode in Chrome when doing this because the Amazon suggestion feature uses your accounts information as well as cookies to tailor the results. But in incognito mode, you’ll get the rawest data – which is what we want.

3Create A Winning Title and Cover

A great title is key in getting potential readers to connect with your book — if your title isn’t good then no one is gonna buy your ebook.

Your title is one of your book’s first impressions on book buyers and it should be interesting.

So the question arises here is — How to choose a book title?

Following are the qualities which you need to remember while choosing the book title:

  • The Title should be Short — As short Title Fits in URL.
  • It should be easy to remember as Much of the publicity for your book will be word of mouth.
  • Your title should give a hint of your story — Leaving something unanswered will motivate potential readers to purchase your book.

The Next most important thing is cover page — Most People buy a book by just looking at its cover page.

So it’s your responsibility to make the cover page as catchy as possible.

Q: what if I don’t know how to design a beautiful cover page?

A: Don’t worry if you think your designing skills are not good — there are a lot of free tools available on the internet which can help you in designing a book cover for FREE.

One of Tool which I personally used is Canva. it is a tool that makes it possible to design anything and publish anywhere.

Canva offers hundreds of FREE book cover Templates to choose from.

You can also use Premium Template using the Trick which is all shown in the Video below:

4Create High-Quality Content

The quality of the content is the key factor behind the success of Ebook.

If your Ebook doesn’t provide the quality to the readers — then for sure they are not going to buy your books in the future.

By observing what resonates with the audience of competing businesses, you can better predict what your audience will appreciate.

Once you have completed writing an ebook, then you need to read your content twice or thrice to cross check — so that there wouldn’t be any spelling as well as grammatical mistakes.

Or if you are out of time you can hire a professional to do this job for you.

Set up A Kindle Direct Publishing Account:

Once your book is completed now its time to publish it — but before that, you need to create a KDP(Kindle Direct Publishing) Account.

Follow these simple steps in order to create KPD account:

Step 1: Visit and create your account.

After you choose your username/email & password you will be prompted to read terms of services. Proceed normally in this step.

After logging in for the first time, you will have to fill in your bank account details in order to be able to get paid by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT).

Step 2: KDP Dashboard

Here is the center of operation. This is the place where all the magic happens.

KDP dashboard is divided into 4 sections:

  • Bookshelf
  • Reports
  • Community
  • KDP Select

95 percent of the times you are going to use only the two of them.

  • Bookshelf 

Well, this is pretty self-explanatory, but in this section, you are going to have all your future books. This is your personal publishing library. This is where all your future title will be published.

After you log in to your account take a moment to familiarize yourself with this section.

  • Reports Section

The second and most probably more important section is the reports section. This is where you will find reports about your book sales.

5Promote Your Book

Before you begin promoting your book, make sure that you have a website and a blog, plus some social networking profiles (Facebook and Twitter).

Use free tools to make your eBook go viral.

Viral Content Bee is my favorite free social media promotion tool and requires a special mention in this post. The whole concept of this tool is based on the mantra, ‘You share my posts and I’ll share yours’.

Basically, you earn credits when you share other’s posts, and they do too when they promote your offering.

You can also create a youtube channel & post video teasers with attractive titles.

Be sure to add the eBook CTA(call to action) in the video description box!


So with the following above Steps, you’ll definitely be able to create & publish your ebook on amazon kindle.
