Amazon is the absolute leader in the eBook revolution so it’s no surprise that Kindle has risen in popularity lately in the online world.

In the light of this, I decided to list five huge advantages of publishing your book to Kindle…

#1 Exposure
Topping the list is exposure. By publishing a book, you are adding credibility of your name: it’s one of the essential steps to personal branding.

Even a book that is priced at $2.99 is going to allow others to see you as a published author.

#2 List Building
It’s extremely easy to place a link to a squeeze page on your website inside of your book.

You can set it up to offer another free eBook to your readers just by allowing them to sign up to an email subscription.

Plus, the added bonus is that most of the prospects that you refer through your eBook are high quality consumers, since they paid money to read your book.

Paying customers are already interested in your niche and by joining your list, they are showing that they like you and what you have to offer.

They are very likely to make additional purchases through your website, allowing you to keep 100% of the sales amount (no sharing with Amazon).

A little known secret that will increase the list building potential even more is the ability to let Amazon give away your book every 5 days out of 90.

Just make sure to enlist the ebook in the KDP Select program’s Free Book Promotion where readers worldwide can get your book free for a limited time.

The rest of the time you’d price the ebook at the lowest amount allowed – $2.99, as this will get more buyers and ultimately more visitors to your squeeze page…

#3 Short Books are Okay
Paperback books are expected to be around 200 pages to be considered “real.”

With Kindle books, the length is no longer the primary concern.

The important part is that the book delivers on its promise, which can be done in as little as 20 pages.

Keeping them short enables you to release more books more frequently, while still delivering high quality books that will sell, and get great reviews.

#4 Kindle Devices are Not Necessary
Readers who purchase your Kindle book can read it on their computer or by downloading the free Kindle app.

So your potential book buyers are virtually anyone who has access to Amazon – how cool is that :)

#5 High Royalties
Remember to price your book between $2.99 and $9.99, since this will get you 70% royalties from sales.

That’s truly a remarkable number when you consider that in the past, authors only received between 10% to 20% royalties from their books.

Plus, you are generating continuous revenue from a book that you only have to work on one time.
