Kindle Publishing Myths Which Kill Sales

Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about certain myths floating around the Kindle publishing community.

Including things taught in certain outdated courses.

Here are just a few of them

  1. No one reads book descriptions
  2. Your book title has to be stuffed with keywords in order to get any sales
  3. Free book downloads are important for your book ranking
  4. You can’t compete in niches like weight loss/self help/make money online
  5. There’s no point in building an email list for your books, or trying to build a brand using Kindle publishing
  6. You can’t use self publishing on Amazon as lead generation
  7. Your book has to be at least 20,000 words long or customers will leave 1 star reviews
  8. All paid advertising for Kindle books is a waste of time
  9. You should always price your paperback books at $9.99 because no one buys any book in double figures
  10. Number of reviews on a book are the only thing that determines sales
  11. Kindle publishing died back in 2014
  12. Kindle Unlimited page reads matter for non-fiction books
  13. You can’t use your books as part of any affiliate marketing campaign
  14. Building an ARC team is impossible and a complete waste of time
  15. Self publishing books is only for authors who failed at getting their books published the “traditional way”

That’s just 15, I could probably think of another 50 off the top of my head.

But for the sake of brevity, I won’t.

Believing just one or two of these is a surefire way to impact sales.

Believing multiple ones can make or break your self publishing business.

Because trust me, I’ve seen even experienced publishers continue to believe these for far too long.

So if you’d like to see how to do things the right way, using time-tested and long-term orientated methods.
