Kindle ebookHave you ever considered list building with Kindle?  I’ve just read about this strategy and it sounds very interesting to me because the KDP Select program gives you the ability to enroll your books in a Free Book Promotion i.e. Amazon will get the traffic for you.

If you include links to your squeeze page inside your ebook then you will be able to build a list of people interested in the topic in your book.  For example, you could offer a bonus tip or a video tutorial in the book for people who sign up to your list.

As your ebook can be only 2,500 words long, it would be relatively easy to build up a library of books on Kindle.

If you also made all your books in a related niche, you could also cross-sell your other books to existing customers.

Once you have enough books on Kindle, you could be earning a very nice passive income from Kindle.

You may even pre-launch your book in a Forum like the Warrior Special Offers Forum before transferring the book to Kindle so you get access to two market places.  (To enable you to charge a little more on the Warrior Forum, you could include the additional bonus content mentioned above because the reader is already on your list, thereby making your book more complete and valuable.)

All the tools for creating and launching this strategy are essentially free if you use a text editor like Google Docs or Open Office.  Kindle includes a cover creator so you are golden from start to finish!

I am definitely going to try this strategy as I have a lot of ebooks that I have written on my hard disc.

My strategy will be to use the inch-wide/mile-deep strategy in creating my ebooks.

You may be thinking that you couldn’t possibly write a book.  If this is you, then why not head over to a PLR site, buy a PLR book and then totally rewrite the content to make it your own.

Alternatively, buy several books on the topic and mash up the content, or indeed head over to Ezine Articles and research your content there.

Or how about taking some of your blog posts and mashing up a book from content that you have already written – a little bit of editing and you could quickly create something very valuable for others to consume – particularly if you plan your blog content in advance so that a series of blog posts creates a coherent whole.

Using a mind-map to map out the structure of your content is a quick way to sort out your chapter headings and the points to be covered in each chapter.

(WARNING: Do not be tempted to use PLR content, or plagiarize other peoples content, which has not been radically altered, on Kindle!  You must make your book unique and original!)

If you could pump out one book a day, then you would quickly build traffic to your squeeze page whilst at the same time earning cash from your book sales.

Once you have built up a whole series of books, you would then be able to create one large book – a compendium of your micro-ebooks – and sell that on Amazon.

List building with Kindle is a great strategy for aspiring internet marketers.
