A few months ago, I shared how to use Product Creator Pro to create “pretty and professional” pdfs. Check that out here if you missed it: Product Creator Pro Demo In addition to making your ebooks & free reports pretty-looking, that program also converts documents for the Kindle. But that's not really the main focus of it.
I mentioned that, if you solely needed to get your ebooks formatted for the Kindle Store that you should instead use this software for formatting your Kindle books.
I received several questions about the Kindle Formatting tool so I wanted to share (step-by-step) just how quick and easy it is (now) to format your documents to load them on the Kindle.
If you are a blogger, you CAN be an author on the Kindle. It's super easy. Just gather a few of your favorite blog posts that you've written into a Word Document (preferably in a sequence or on a strong central topic). Add an intro and closing and then follow the steps below.
For instance, if you're a health blogger and are big into juice fasting, then copy and paste several of those blog posts together that teach or tell a story. Or alternatively, write a short report about how to do juice fasting if you _____. Like “How to do a Juice Fast for Optimum Health – Even if you Hate Spinach!”
Once you have your Word Document ready, the rest is now super easy. (Trust me. It wasn't before!)
IMPORTANT! Service Providers…
You can easily market what I'm about to show you to your clients. Charge $25 each to format Kindle books – or $75 to format, design a cover, and upload the books into the Kindle Store. You can help your clients to get more customers, earn passive income, and be published authors on the Kindle!
Step One. Buy Some Credits for the Kinstant Formatter.
-> You can do that, here. I'll wait.
Step Two. Sign In.
After you buy your credits, you will instantly get your login information to start using the Kindle Formatting Software. Sign in.
Step Three. Load your Ebook Document.
This is easy peasy.
All you need is to save your ebook in a .doc or .docx format and you'll be able to upload it into the Kinstant Formatter.
Click on “Select File”
Then, you'll have a box pop up where you can find and then upload your ebook. (Remember it must be in a document format.)
In my example, you'll see I'm using a test document which is the Foreward to Kelly McCausey's new book “Solopreneurs are Smarter”.
After you upload the document, you'll see the Document Analysis and a green checkmark showing the document was uploaded successfully.
Step Four: Upload your Cover (Optional)
The next step is optional, but I do recommend it. That is to upload your cover. The Kinstant Formatter will place it on the front page of your Kindle book.
Important Note! Remember, most people read their books on Kindles that are black and white. So, check your ecover to make sure that it is still attractive and readable when it gets converted from color to black and white.
However, if you don't have a cover yet, just go ahead without one. The software will create a decent one for you, until you can get a cover made. You can always format your book again later and upload your new copy to the Kindle.
Step Five: Add Author & Title Info
Next enter your book Title and your Author name in the fields on the page.
You can tweak the “Advanced Options” if you wish, or just leave the default as is.
Step Six: Watch as the Kinstant Formatter Converts your Document
Click on “Generate”. You'll see the button turn grey while the document is being converted.
When the document is done being converted, you'll see the formatting report appear. Obviously my “test” document didn't need much work since it had no formatting in it, but if I had converted any of my other ebooks – eek! You don't even wanna know. There is a bunch that has to be cleaned up in those. I'm in the process of rebranding and reuploading all of my Kindle books. Thank God for this tool or I'd be hosed.
After that, you click on “Download” to download your .mobi file to your computer. Then you're ready.
Bonus feature! If you wish, you can click the box “Delete all files from the server immediately”. Check this box if you prefer keeping your niches secret.
- View your .mobi file in the Kindle Previewer.
- Make changes to your Word file and submit again
- When you're happy with the result? Submit it to Kindle Desktop Publishing!
