What is the BEST Kindle course?

32 replies
What is the best Kindle course/Book you have seen or used.

I have seen a few of them... But there are so many I want to weed out the crap. As I only have limited time and resources to put into any more study of this.

Thanks.

    Hey Avatrix, have you tried the Money Machine Login already? They have a particular module that covers about Kindle. They have modules as well about Drop-Shipping and PL & Wholesale.

    Hope that helps!

    You can also try looking for information from Amy Harrop and Deborah Drum. They both have some good resources, especially when it comes to marketing your book.

      Not a "Kindle course" at all, but I've just been reading John Locke's book about how he sold over a million Kindle books in 5 months, last year. (The book itself is $2.99 on Kindle, or I think $8.99 for the hard copy).

      He's writing about fiction, but it struck me, reading about his marketing plan (which is the main part of the book) that actually much of what he says would apply equally to non-fiction/information books, too.

    As Alexia already mentioned, John Locke's book is good.

    Bill Platt also offered a WSO called "Professional Kindle Marketing" that had a lot of good information.

    Annie typed faster. But I'm glad she mentioned Paul Coleman's. I had forgotten it and it's also a good resource.

      You REALLY don't need to spend money on a course IMO.

      I can sum up what you need to do in a quick post:

      Write in word, format in Sigil, change to .mobi in Calibre, check in free Kindle reader, upload.

      Your landing page is your sales page. Have a good title, book cover and product description.

      In your product description use social proof once you have it, sell the benefits and have a unique selling point. Check the reviews in your niche and find out why people are giving them low stars.

      To scale, write books in a series based on what your ideal customer would be interested. Put links in the back of all books and promote all your books.

      Enroll in KDP select and promote it for free to bring it up the charts. Do it for 1 day, or 2 max.

      If you really want to be walked through it, I've read Jonny Andrews book as well. It's Ok as a rough guide but it doesn't exactly have anything special to blow you away.

    I sat in on a webinar w/ Jonny Andrews last night. He is charging $1,000 per person for his 8-week course. I thought someone on the webinar said he initially put this course out on the warrior forum.

    $1,000?????!!!! Incredible.

      Jonny said the WSO version was much smaller and new course is nothing like the WSO version...

      Hmmm?

      I did not purchase it but I'm sure someone here did and could expound upon the difference...

      Regular price is $1,995 because I've been getting emails.

      Cheers,

    I''d also recommend Money Machine Login, it's very good. I love the kindle, it's so easy to read. I love books and thought I wouldn't be able to bring myslf to reading from a screen, but it's very user friendly.

    Geoff Shaw's Kindling hands down. Some of the others I bought I couldn't even get through (people slurping drinks in videos, etc). I have to have good information AND quality delivery and Geoff does both.

      +1 on this recommendation. Geoff's course is excellent; substantive and hype-free. Paul Coleman also has some great content.

      If you get stuck, check out Amazon's help pages and forums and you'll learn all the basics pretty quickly.

    Well, she didn't plug herself, but Tiffany's done a great review of the Kindling course via her email series. I know she's holding a challenge that started yesterday as well:

    Kindle Publishing Challenge Day 1

    (I'll plug her stuff since she's a great read...one of the few IM'ers who comes to my personal inbox and not my spam one!)

    My favorite is Geoff Shaw's Kindling. I find it excellent and he keeps adding to it. Jonny's course was good when I took the Mastermind one at $500.00 but I can't speak to the new one because I haven't had a full look through it yet.

    First of all - NO ONE CAN ANSWER THIS QUESTION WITHOUT KNOWING SOMETHING ABOUT YOU (caps intended).


    Imagine posting in a thread asking "what is the BEST MEDICINE".

    For what? First of all, what is your problem? What is your goal? What is your budget?

    There are different courses designed to provide different solutions. Paul Coleman does good work. Tink does good work.

    Quite frankly I think the best move tomakeis to join some kind of closed membership - ex. mastermind - where you can get tips from many different people without having to rely on one opinion.

    Many people are far more open in closed communities than they are in open ones. I happen to manage the #1 Skype Mastermind on Warrior forum for Kindle Publishers. It's not for everyone so I couldn't possibly say if it was right for you without knowing more about you.

    I will say we have people doing $x,xxx (sometimes from one book) but more important than that having fun, encouraging each other and building real kindle publishing businesses that will servive google updates, facebook changes and the other online business roller coaster rides!

    Good luck...

    I have been reading about Geoff Shaw's Kindle course that stays on the top list of courses for Kindly community.

    Learning about kindle & then going for a WSO seems to be a good idea to me, can anyone recommend more better way to launch this program in an ideal way ?

      Geoff Shaw - his site is constantly growing with good info. Very ethical.
      Paul Coleman - definitely think outside the box stuff. Also ethical tactics
      Philip John - Slingshot has some Kindle marketing tactics you won't find anywhere else. Ditto on the ethical.

      I bought Jonny's original WSO and the tactics worked back in January. A few still work now. I use some but have added tactics I've learned elsewhere. I think $1000 is overkill for any Kindle class or master mind. JMO.

      I stress ethical because some "experts" recommend strategies that are against the Amazon TOS and could get your account yanked. So staying on the straight and narrow with Amazon is important.

        The problem with "expert" training is that you can't claim you have the "best" solution to help people when you don't know what their goals are....
        for some people they just want to use kindle books for lead generation.....
        others just to express themselves creatively....
        others to just get a bit of pocket money....
        finally others to build a long term sellable business....

        so my answer remains the same - if you have no idea what the challenge is the reader is facing, it's difficult for them to sell a solution. That's why I am unabashedly for live and interactive community-based learning...

        Having said that yes Paul Coleman stuff ROCKS!

    Geoff Shaw's Kindling. It's actually a membership site with a (for now) one time fee to join, free lifetime updates. Excellent stuff.

    After reading some ugly reviews on John Locke's book I was tempted to pass it by until I saw several credible people here raving about it.

    It's excellent. Well worth the money. Actually, worth far more than the $2.99 he's charging.

    Hello Avatarix,

    Some good Kindle product producers (no particular order- I'd pay attention to all of them; I may miss a few, but these definitely come to mind):

    1. Rachel Rofe
    2. James Jones
    3. Bill Platt
    4. Paul Coleman
    5. Deborah Drum & Amy Harrop
    6. Geoff Shaw

    Several of the courses have already been mentioned in this thread. I'll try to mention some that haven't been mentioned yet:

    With Rachel Rofe:

    Page One Profits (with Mario Cole) (how to rank on first page)
    Rolling In Reviews (getting those all-important reviews)
    Hands Off Books (how to produce quality books as quickly as you can)
    Kinstant Formatter (can make it easier to format your Kindle books- you still have to work with it a bit, but it's easier than using Amazon's interface)

    With Deborah Drum and Amy Harrop:

    Publishers Review Accelerator (this is a software tool for getting more reviews, so it's not a course on publishing on Kindle, but it's quite useful once you have the basics down pat and publish your first book)

    With James Jones:

    Kindle Kickstarter (good way to get started with Kindle if you're totally new to it- will give you some solid basics)
    Kindle Formatting (can help you with formatting your Kindle book properly)

    Hopefully, this has been helpful for you - good luck!

    Take care,

    I'm curious if anyone can give any insights on these two Kindle courses --
    > Forbidden Kindle Bootcamp ($497.00)
    > Apex Authors ($39 per month)
    by John Rhodes and Jay Boyer?
    They appear to have quite a bit of success on Amazon.
    Thank you.
