My “Kindle earnings” Google alert alerted me to a guy on the Warrior Forum talking about using AK Elite to publish a “book” he had written in MS Word, so he just threw it up in the software and onto Amazon’s KDP platform.
That book was Make money on YouTube – Newbie friendly YouTube promo method that makes expert cry and begging to reveal the secret, and I see it’s only 42 pages long and he says it’s gotten one sale, as you can see from his below screenshot, which shows the one sale for the week ending 8/31/13 — and his $2.09 royalty for that book.
The Publication Date is July 10, 2013, so yes, that’s not much money from 7/10/2013 to the date he took the screenshot, which must’ve been around 9/28/2013, which is the next date “week ending” listed.
That shows his Oil Rig Job – Get a job in a rising offshore industry in 30 days starting from NOW! book, which is even shorter at 13 pages long, with a publication date of September 23, 2013, and two sales as of October 4, 2013, which is amazing to see that two people bought that book at $5.37 at only 13 pages long, giving him $3.76 in Kindle book royalties in a week.
Obviously, if I were to create a longer and more useful book about oil rig jobs — or similar career-minded books that can really help people get work, I hope — it could be even more popular. This guy goes on and on about the Kindle Elite software helping him, and that’s great. I don’t see the necessity of it, but then again, that’s because I already know how to format my Word documents and upload them to the Kindle platform.
It’s interesting all the same, though. Here are the photos:
