How did I actually put it on sale?
First, I created an article called:
“How to Start a Blog that Pays on Amazon Kindle”.

Tips for a successful e-book
You know all about promoting an e-book, but do you know the tricks to attract readers?
Concretely, even if you set up the best advertising campaigns, you will not reach your objectives if your book is not of interest.
Thus, you have to select a promising subject, on which you are comfortable and which can interest a maximum of people.
The choice of title is a determining element. It’s the first thing your future buyers will read.
Also, since your book is sold on the Internet, you should know that it will be easier to find if it answers questions that people have on Google.
For example, if you want to write around the theme of works and crafts, design a title like
“How to renovate your house alone?”
Very easy to understand and close to the searches that Internet users frequently do on Google.
If you don’t want to rely on the help of search engines to market yourself, you can dare a more mysterious title and bet on the curiosity of others.
Finally, we readily admit that a title translating a benefit, such as:
“How to better endure the heatwave?”
“Overcome depression in a natural way”
will necessarily engage more people.
Writing an e-book to publish on Amazon is within everyone’s reach. There is no need to invest money to cover editing costs, and registration for the “Publish on Kindle” program is completely free. So nothing prevents you from trying.
How to promote your Kindle book?
Publishing a book on Amazon Kindle is a first step: to increase sales and therefore profits, it is essential to make it known.
With this in mind, do not hesitate to announce the release of your writing everywhere around you: on social networks, of course, but also to your relatives and even at work.
Never underestimate the power of word-of-mouth: if we begin to discover that you have published something, the most curious is bound to want to know more.
The ideal way to sell as many e-books as possible is to set up a major communication campaign on the web. If you have a blog, you should definitely write articles related to your book – don’t forget to link to the page to buy it on Amazon.
The role of influencers is also decisive: if you manage to contact them, offer them to read your work, with a view to obtaining a post on their own website.
Video support is also great for promoting an e-book. If you already have a YouTube channel that brings together a larger or smaller community, register, talk about your story, and never forget the hyperlink to your book’s product sheet, to increase sales again.
