Thank you so much for taking the time to share your biggest problem with Kindle Publishing Profits.
You are in the TOP 1% of people who get it! How smart are you?!
Most people who publish on the Kindle don't understand that the Kindle is not an entire business. You still need to create a business entity around your books in which you build assets, community, a brand, and a list. Go YOU! 🙂
The questions to ask are –
1. Are you building a business around your Kindle books?
2. Could you be doing it better?
The #1 most important thing you can do to make sure YOU control your business (not Amazon) – is to create a mailing list from the people who buy your books.
This is the training that I recommend.

However, since I always like to offer great content without requiring you to buy something, let me add a few tips for you.
1. Include a bonus for customers of your book.
Since 2009, I've included a special bonus for people who buy my books on the Kindle. They are sent to a page where they can sign up to receive additional training that enhances their experience with the book. (This works great!)
2. Link inside your book for additional value.
Wherever it makes sense (and where you can add value) link to additional resources for your customers. These can be links to your blog posts, webinars, podcasts, software, examples, videos – or any number of things. This also helps you to add ongoing profits, extra traffic, and to build your lists, too.
