If you have an account with amazon already you can use that login and if you don’t you can simply create a new account.
After signing up…
You will be sent a one-time password (OTP) so that they can confirm you are the one.
After that, you’ll need to sign in to your Amazon account, upon signing in you will be logged in into your kdp dashboard where you will do the proper account registration
Upon signing in, click on the above link (that says update now) to register but you need to verify it’s you.
For this …
An OTP will be sent to you, so you need to enter it and confirm your account.
I must say, Amazon is very strict with their security they might even place your account on temporal lock if you enter a wrong OTP three times so be careful when entering your OTP
Also, make sure that the number you use to register on amazon is always handy and accessible all the time.
It is pretty easy to register for the account as the things asked of are straightforward, they only need three sets of information so that you will be able to publish.
These includes your name, phone number, address and lots more that is so that they can be sure of your identity.
They need your account information, where they will automatically send your royalties.
I will advise that you go to Payoneer.com to register an account with them, they’ll give you a US, UK and Europe account number for free.
Amazon makes payment every month that is, all your earnings for the month will be sent to your account at the end of each month.
The last thing is…
In Nigeria, we don’t pay tax so there’s no tax information to give, but they will ask for either your passport number or national ID number, so fill it correctly and wait for your account to be verified.
Normally, your account will be verified and approved. If otherwise, you will be shown what’s wrong with your registration so you will know what to correct
Step 6: Publish Your Book
You’ve decided on your niche, chosen a keyword, written your book, your front cover is ready and your Amazon kindle account has been updated.
The next thing is to publish your book, you need to go your amazon kindle account and click on add new kindle ebook
There are 3 stages in publishing an Ebook on Amazon
Uploading the ebook and the cover
Pricing the eBook
Stage 1: Ebook Information
This is the area where you enter the title of the book. It is better to choose a very good title (we will talk about this in marketing) and insert keywords that you know people are looking for daily.
This should be keywords that pertain to your book I mean so that when people are searching your book can easily come up.
Everything regarding information about the book will be asked in this section, the people it is written for, the ages that can read the book, the category it falls in and lots more
This section should be pretty easy, as you already have in mind what you aim to achieve with the book and the market you are targeting.
Stage 2: Uploading Your Ebook and the Cover
Amazon accepts different formats including doc, Docx, ePub and lot more but I will advise you put your book in Docx or doc so that when amazon reformat it, the structure remains the same
You then upload your cover if you have one already.
Amazon accepts only top quality covers, not more than 2mb and you can decide to make use of their front cover generator that generates a cover for your book in minutes.
Another thing in this section is the preview, amazon helps to recheck for error in your book, they have to review it and check if it meets their standard.
If it does, then you get to preview and see the way it will look when your customers are reading it, if you are contented then you save and move on to pricing.
Stage 3: Pricing the Ebook
How you price your ebook will either kill or make the book, unlike hardcopy.
An ebook is not usually priced high only if you only have a loyal audience and you’ve made quite a name for yourself in the industry.
The first thing to do is to go to amazon and check how much people in your category are pricing their books this will help you know how much people in your category are willing to pay to read these books.
Research has shown that books that are priced between $2.99 to $5.99 sell faster especially books sold for $3.99. You can first of all test this price then move higher if you think your book is worth than that.
Step 7: Market Your Ebook
There is nothing that sells without marketing, even if you write a book on ‘How to live forever’ if you don’t market it, trust me you might not even make a sale.
In fact, successful authors have in a way or the other marketed their books before they could record such high sales.
There are a number of ways to market your amazon kindle ebook like choosing an eye-catching title, creating a fascinating book cover and lots more but we will be talking about three valid ways to get more sales fast on your ebook.
Three ways to market your amazon kindle ebook.

#3: Getting People to review the ebook.

Amazon Kindle isn’t a GET a RICH quick scheme but a business that requires plan like every other business. The hardest part is creating your eBook.
But once you’ve published them, most of your work is done and Amazon handles the rest. You just have to wait for the end of the month to get paid for every sale you’ve made.
