How to Sell Books on Amazon with Ellen Violette #55
Jun 25, 2020 Season 1 Episode 55
Steven Pope

Have you ever wanted to write a book or sell books on Amazon? This is the podcast for you. Today we talk to a visionary who knows how to help you reach the coveted title of "#1 Best Seller on Amazon."

Ellen Violette is an award-winning book and business coach, multiple #1 bestselling author, podcast host, CEO of Create A Splash and a Grammy-nominated songwriter.

Her first piece of advice: Giving books away for free is NOT a mistake. Especially if you give away E-books.

You need to convey to the consumer what makes your book valuable. What does your book have to offer, what makes it unique? Include this somewhere in the title or subtitle.

Just getting started? What are the keywords that will bring people to find your book? This is what moves business forward. Do market research with your target market, a minimum of 10 people, to figure out the search terms that would connect them to your book. 

An E-book giveaway may work for your business model. People want value before they pay you, this can help you build your brand. E-books can be a low cost-high value proposition. You can give E-books away to reach #1 status. The general public is usually impressed by “#1 best seller." Those in the know may not care much about the title, but it can open the doors to amazing opportunities.

Can books make a profit on Amazon? Selling books on Amazon can help you accelerate success. Ellen's books have all reached top #1 best sellers. Books open doors for you and your personal brand. You are never too old to write a book. Things happen when you write books.

What mistakes did you learn on your journey? When Ellen first started, people were not exactly telling the truth about passive income; they claimed writers were going to be on the beach making an automated income which was misleading. The money is really in the coaching, teaching what’s in the book.

If there's something you don't know how to do, hire people to fill in the gaps. Know whether you are the creative person or the business person and what is going to work for you. If you don't listen to your inner guide, it can be a struggle. Also, sometimes things happen that are outside of your control like the recession of 2008.
