I hope all is well and wish you a safe and great summer in advance.
I have several Kindle Publishing questions and hope as always to get the articulate answers that you have afforded me in the past. It is greatly appreciated.
There have been several Kindle Warrior Special Offers over the years that look interesting but I never see the creator answer the pitfalls that come to mind.
I’m a published author with my own works but wanted to see about the possibility of outsourcing.
Many of the Special Offers state they have the book researched, written, formatted, and with catchy cover for 40.00 American money?
Is this possible? To find somebody with proper English grammar and the ability to create content wouldn’t they want more compensation?
If you could find somebody would there be enough folks out there to release the multiple books at the same time the Special Offers talk about (10-20 to start building an immediate brand)?
In order for me to get an indication of money allocation vs. royalty return could you please tell me out of every 10 Kindle books how many would sell nothing or next to zero, average, good, and excellent?
What is considered average sales per month?
How about good?
What constitutes excellent?
Is there an oxymoron in the philosophy of the Special Offers? They talk about building a brand and getting known but if you have numerous titles that sell well and are reviewed superlatively are they negated by the numerous ones that are doormats?
One portion of all the Special Offers have somewhat of a red flag going off when they mention a book from an obscure niche with no competition has a monthly royalty of no less than 1,000 U.S. dollars.
If you found the niche would the ability to find somebody with knowledge in the industry and the ability to write the content be much costlier than 40.00?
What type of investment would you recommend to get started? Since it has to be a game of numbers would at least (10 books x 40.00) 800.00 total be sufficient to begin or would you hedge the bet and feel 15-20?
Is the 2.99 price point per book recommended or would you go higher or lower?
Thank you as always for your time.
Normally I answer in minutes all posts but one computer in the house went bye-bye and the other is following (thus it will be normally the next day when on the road.
All the best,
