How much do you make/earn from ...

I'm really curious to know about your self publishing or outsourced work earning on amazon. I'm really confused who and where to get a start? [I'm not a writer]
Some days ago, i was watching some KDP [Kindle Direct Publishing] videos on youtube. There's this guy, who claims that he earns $10,000+ with his kindle empire on amazon. I mean is this possible ?

However, How many of you are making money from Kindle Direct Publishing?
I would appreciate if anyone could tell me about great WSO kindle course.

Could you just give me a hint, whether, the books are fiction non-fiction?

    This is the only course you'll need:

    It's expensive compared to some but you get what you pay for.

    And yes plenty of people are making money with both fiction and non-fiction.

    Kindle is a goldmine if you know what works there. Will it work if I write how to market kindle books and sell it there? Just a thought

    seekdefo yes, you`ll have an audience with this subject. Many people reading kindles would like to start writing some of their own, so you`ll surely find some buyers for your work.

    Any number is possible! It all depends on what you do!!! Do some research on the vendor, but at the end of the day, making money will be based on your efforts. If the vendor checks out and you grab their product. Give it 110% and don't stop until you see results.

    I am full time and cannot speak to kindle specifically, but I have friends that love it and are making a ton so I know it is possible. The $10k a month mark is not as hard to hit as most think it is (I was in that boat for a very long time) The question to ask is... It that net?

      The Best And Only Course I've ever Purchased Is Here.
      http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-...ning-ever.html

      Geoff Is THE resource to use. 1 on 1 email help usually within 24 hours too. Not a guarantee but it's there for the tough questions.

      I would say I purchased the course a little over a year ago...unfortunately I waited to start and didn't publish my first book until January of this year.

      Since your asking how much I make, here's my stats $ wise since I've started. These are only from AMAZON. I publish on 5 different platforms including there.

      JAN - 25.12
      FEB - 56.51
      MAR - 28.25
      APR -284.65
      MAY - 1977.86
      JUN - 1823.00
      JUL - 2982.52
      AUG - 3187.64 (Month is not over at the time I post this.)

      Currently I am split 50 / 50 for Fiction and Non-Fiction published under multiple pen names. I do this because I like the idea of being everywhere. If that makes sense? I'd much rather not have to rely on trends or lucky breaks in a particular niche. And for what it's worth so far it seems to be working well. But if I can give a small piece of advice. Don't branch out like I am now until your established and making some sales in your targeted starting genre. Like if your targeting sci-fi (whatever) stay there and get known and a following. Then after a while branch out. I stetched myself way to thin in the beginning and payed for it by making less money and taking longer to get to where I am at now. 70% of my earnings do come from Amazon. But don't leave the extra money on the table by being lazy and not publishing to the other majors. Start an email list and a site with your first book. I just started mine in July, and the results show themselves in your sales exponentially. Just imagine having a few hundred or few thousand people who love your work going and buying up your newest book the first week it's out. It's a really good sales bump.....I think that's a lot of the important stuff.

      If you build it, they will come. If you write it, they will read it. If it's good, well, they will tweet it, like it, share it, stumble it, pin it, post it, copy it, click it, buy it, question it, digg it and comment on it. Let's write useful, meaningful content on our sites and clean the internet up :)

        I'm glad that you're doing really well on kindle. I would like to know, with how many books did you generate all that money?

        What ranks are your books in kindle store?

    I also think that there are a lot of people interested in this subject, especially since writing has become a real hit for many freelancers. Can you provide a few details about using Kindle and how writers can succeed in this domain? Thank you!

    Self-publishing on the Kindle platform should be treated just like any other business if you want to have success. Just like computermesh said above, the key is to establish your brand as an author and build a following.

    From what I've observed, the most successful Kindle authors do the following:

    - They cross promote multiple books in the same niche by linking each of their books together (as long as they are in the same market/niche).

    - They have a website with a lead generator and an opt-in form to get readers to sign up.

    - They promote their current and new releases to their e-mail list.

    - They actively market, promote and advertise their books on a variety of platforms.

    - They put out high quality books that are related to each other, and they keep publishing consistently.

    This just scratches the surface, but hopefully it's enough to get some of your creative juices flowing.

    If you ask how many then I can tell there are thousands of them mostly in fiction (young adult genre)... Outsourcing maybe a good idea but personally, I won't recommend it doing if you want to create a name for your self. Most successful publishers in fiction genre writes their own novel. They write with passion and not just for money....

    Some stories:

    Amanda Hocking, the writer who made millions by self-publishing online | Books | The Guardian - most popular..

    I am still on a learning stage on how to work on Kindle Direct publishing, but one of my friend whom I personally know is working on kindle and making around five figures a month. I think the earning depends on how much effort you have given to your work. I also know someone who makes hundred dollars a month or $10k from Kindle royalties.

    yes kindle can be profitable, I wonder how many books you need to sell before reaching like 3000$ like computer mesh reported.
