Publish an eBook

Why an eBook?

Publishing a Kindle eBook is another simple way of generating consistent passive income.

Did you know that Amazon.com is the biggest competitor to Google than any other search engine like Yahoo or Bing?

More shoppers try to search for a product on Amazon than on any traditional search engine.

When people want in-depth information on a specific topic, they don’t search for blog posts on Google but instead, try to find a highly recommended book on Amazon.

Your aim should be to leverage the power of Amazon.com’s growing outreach and popularity to generate a stable passive income source.


Suitable For

People who have in-depth knowledge of a certain topic or love to do research and explain it in an easily understood form.

Skills Required

1. Ability to provide detailed insights on a particular topic.

2. Ability to provide some extraordinary tips for solving people’s problems.

Time Required For Creating An eBook

The time required completely depends on the creator of the eBook. What topics he/she wants to cover? How many details does the creator want to include?

These are the important factors that define the time required.



1. Research, research, and research. It is the key to a successful Kindle eBook product. Research about what people are looking for in the domain related to your eBook’s topic.

For example, if you are creating an eBook on ‘Yoga to lose weight’ look for how many people are looking for yoga exercises to lose weight on the internet and Amazon? What are their expectations of a book?

You can easily conduct this research by studying the comments, reviews, and popularity of the existing competitor’s books on Amazon.

2. Write to one reader. When you know your ideal reader, you know how much he/she already knows. You can avoid boring him/her with obvious information, and you can provide exactly the information he/she’s looking for.

3. Check out how many people are asking questions on the topic you have chosen, using websites such as Quora, Yahoo Answers, and WikiAnswers. More questions mean more people are looking for answers and that’s a good sign.

4. Look out for the market gaps in your selected domain. And see whether there’s a demand for some topic, see whether your eBook can cater to that demand.

5. Visit Amazon.com and see how many books are present in your selected domain. Are people buying those books? This will help you to understand the demand and purchasing ability of the market in your domain.

6. Find a few friendly readers who match your ideal reader profile and give them your first draft. Not only will they help make your book better, but it will also boost your confidence.

    Publishing their own book is a dream that many people have, but how many actually go through with it. Luckily now, due to the internet and Kindle, it is easier than ever to publish your own books and at a minimal cost compared to what you would have to pay a publisher for a hard copybook.

    It must be great to have a few successful books out there and the best part is you write the book once and it can sell copies for years after that.
