I’ve talked before about being a Kindle Publisher (affiliate link) and highly recommend it for making long term sales revenue. But here’s how one person is cashing in via Kindle on some current news.
Warning, this is controversial. I’m not suggesting you copy it (though you could). But I’m suggesting you recognize how currently “HOT” news can become a way to make money rather quickly via Kindle.
First of course you have to know how to be a Kindle Publisher!
But once you know that, you’ll see how easy it is to do what this person did.
What’s all over the news today (December 9th, 2010)?
Guess what? Amazon UK is selling at least excerpts from the Wikileaks cables as a Kindle book already.
Now you may not agree.
That may make you mad as you-know-what.
I’m not saying you should do the same thing at all.
What I’m saying is that if there is something in the NEWS and you know how simple it is to be a Kindle Publisher, you can turn news items into revenue on one of the busiest sales platforms in the world! How much will you make? Don’t know. How long will the money come in? Don’t know.
But what I do know is that if you find a trending topic and know millions have their minds focused on the subject, a Kindle book can be a fast way to test that market and maybe cash in.
I tried to do this for one subject and never made the first $10 so it doesn’t ALWAYS work. But at least you know how to “get in the game”. Put the “buzz” to work for you!
