Sell Your Blog on Amazon Kindle
Until recently, there has been only a few blogs that were for sale on Amazon’s Kindle store, as it was exclusively for major blogs only. Now, every blog owner can make his/her blog available for sale with the new Kindle Publishing for Blogs Beta program. Amazon Kindle Publishing for Blogs is a fast and easy self-publishing tool that lets you upload your blog for sale in the Kindle Store.
What Is Kindle?
Basically, Kindle is an electronic book reader (or wireless reading device, as they are sometimes called) which allows the user to use the device to read digital copies of books, magazines, blogs, etc. Watch this 5 minute video from Amazon.
How Does Kindle Publishing Work?
You can publish your blog to kindle store by creating a new account (Amazon Associates are not accepted), and then following a 3 step process. After submitting your blog, it will usually take around 48 hours to get approved and published. Amazon will share 30% of the revenue of the price they set up with you. Most of the blogs on kindle right now are priced at $0.99 – $1.99 (max) per month. As an example, I have submitted my other blog, TwittNotes a couple of days ago, and is now live and for sale on Kindle Store.
Is it Worth Publishing Your Blog On Kindle?
Unless you have a large subscriber base, publishing your blog on Kindle does not appear it is something you can make a lot of money with. I have no idea how many Kindle users there are, and how many of them read blogs. From that group of blog readers, I don’t know how many of them will want to read a blog about Twitter Tips and Resources.
One thing I do know is that when a powerful domain like Amazon.com gives you the chance to occupy for free a piece of their real estate, it is almost unwise to ignore that opportunity. Whether or not someone will actually pay to read your blog on Kindle, you should add your blog, too, no matter what kind of small business you are or industry you’re in. Wait a couple of months or so and you’ll appreciate having a page on Amazon’s domain. Publish your blog Amazon Kindle here. Every Bit Counts…
