  • Guide to Personal Brand Building Using Kindle Publishing

    Learn how to write and self-publish a book to build your personal brand with the help of Ryan Deiss’s Kindle Publishing Revolution.

    Writing and publishing a book remains the best strategy for building your personal brand. Writing a book establishes you as an expert in your field, instantly differentiating you from your competition and opening the door for new opportunities.

    Writing and self-publishing can be the first step in building personal connections with clients, prospects, and influencers in your field. It also forms the basis of a strong press and social media strategy.

    Writing a book worked for me, (see Personal Branding Helps Make Every Day Independence Day), it worked for the hundreds of author’s I’ve interviewed, and it can work for you…with one important difference…

    Today, it’s easier than ever to write your way to a personal brand

    The only thing that’s changed since I created my personal brand by writing my first book is that it’s become easier and easier to write and publish a book!

    The trade publishing and bookstore gatekeepers have lost their stranglehold on publishing.

    Today, there are just 2 requirements for successfully building your brand by writing and publishing:

    1. You have to write as efficiently as possible. You have to manage your time and avoid the traps that often trap the unwary, such as lack of planning, procrastination, failure to market, and the trap of perfectionism.
    2. You also have to leverage the latest technology. In particular, you have to take advantage of the latest self-publishing platforms, like ebook publishing with the the Amazon Kindle. You have to break the “bestseller” and bookstore” mindset.

    Learning to be efficient

    You can learn how to write as efficiently as possible for free, by reviewing the more than 100 articles and posts that are gathered together in my Author’s Corner posts on the Personal Branding Blog.

    These cover every aspect of planning, writing, promoting, and profiting from writing and publishing books, based on my personal experiences and the hundreds of published authors I’ve interviewed. These posts describe the best practices for writing and publishing, as well as review the latest creativity and writing books, tools, and software.

    Leveraging the latest technology

    Best of all, you can get a fresh, up to the minute, perspective on ebook publishing using the Amazon Kindle for less than a dollar by ordering Ryan Deiss’s Kindle Publishing Revolution – Amazon Kindle Publishing Guide.

    The Kindle Publishing Revolution does an excellent job of introducing:

    • The changes that have taken place in book publishing sparked by the Amazon Kindle, since as the fact that ebook sales now outnumber sales of print books
    • How to profit from current trends and reader preferences, i.e., ebook topics, length, and pricing
    • Strategies for profiting from ebook sales, including after-sales opportunities
    • Guidelines and tips for preparing and uploading ebooks for sale as Amazon Kindle ebooks

    Ryan Deiss’ Kindle Publishing Revolution does an exceptional job of describing the context and implications of the Amazon Kindle.

    Reading it will likely spark dozens of ideas for short, focused ebooks that you can write and publish to build your brand and drive traffic to your website.

    What if you don’t own a Kindle?

    Note, you–and your clients and prospects–don’t need to own a Kindle ebook reader to take read books published for the Kindle. Amazon.com offers Free Kindle Reader applications and software for iPhones, iPads, Android devices, BlackBerrys, as well as Macintosh computers and Windows computers.

    Building your personal brand during revolutionary times

    The Amazon Kindle has proven itself as a primary book publishing platform for personal brand building and business development.

    Now is the time to learn more about how to create a personal branding strategy based on the Amazon Kindle. I encourage you use The Kindle Publishing Revolution as a starting point to writing and publishing an ebook to build your personal brand. If you’ve already read it, I welcome your comments.

      Good post by my friend Roger C. Parker. I can attest to the fact that Ryan Deiss knows Kindle publishing — in November I attended his epub seminar in Dallas and used what I learned to launch a Kindle book ( http://www.amazon.com/The-Mental-Makeover-Goodbye-ebook/ ) that has quickly jumped into the top 5% in Kindle non-fiction books and in the top 1.5% – 3% in its category niches.

      Nice post! I have been relying on ebook publishing since 2011 to bring in some of my total income. It’s a real blessing to see my earnings increase a bit more every single month.

      Back in December 2012 I co-wrote a compilation of short stories with a friend (packed into one book.) To our surprise, that book is now selling around 2,000 copies per month. I frequently disclose most of those earnings on my blog, in hopes of teaching and motivating other people. My stories are mostly based on romance, a touchy subject thats certainly not for everyone. But in the end im still building a brand (or a reputable author name, in this case) within the genre.

      I don’t use KDP Select, but may try it out with some of my future books, by the way.

      And while we’re on the subject of branding, the best advice I can give others is to never give up. It took many “bad books” before I finally started learning the ropes. Also, while it’s good to focus on your passion, sometimes you have to step out of your comfort zone and explore new (unfamiliar) subjects. Once you learn about these subjects, they will often become your passion later down the road anyway! So learn as much as you can about the ebook marketplace.
