How To Join ACX (Audible Audiobooks) As a Foreigner

Isn’t it just a punch in the stomach when you see this money making opportunity but you can’t take it because you don’t live in a certain country?
You got all your books up on Amazon Kindle and Createspace for paperbacks but you can’t get your audiobooks up on Amazon because you don’t live in the US or UK.

THERE IS A SOLUTION!

I used to think that you needed to live in the US or the UK to be able to get your books up on ACX (Audible). Well, if you read more closely on ACX, they say that you actually just need an address in the US to be able to sign up.

So This Is What You Do

Head over to this website called Traveling Mailbox. Traveling Mailbox is a great service that will set you up with a mailbox in the US, and it only costs $15 a month, and what’s so great with this service compared to others is that they will scan the mails you get and send them to you by email which makes it cheaper than other services that just reship your mail.

It takes less than a minute to sign up and there you go, you have your US mail address. If you log on to Traveling Mailbox you will find your address. Then when you get a mail you can easily make Traveling Mailbox to reship it or to scan it for you and get the mail in your email inbox.

Now you can sign up to ACX without any problem!

Just Kidding, There Is One More Problem We Need To Solve

Once you have your ACX account, it’s time to put in your bank details… that’s when they tell you that you need to have a US Bank Account. But no worries! We can solve this too in just 2 minutes!

Head over to Payoneer and make an account, it’s free.  If you use my link you will get a $25 FREE BONUS from Payoneer when you receive your first $100 on Payoneer. Not bad huh?

November 2015 Income Report

November was my best month so far since I started my book publishing business on Kindle.
One of my new releases reached a bestsellers rank of 2200 in the paid store which was a new record for me. I’m very happy to see that every new book I release reach a better and faster peak than the one before that.

November Numbers:
Kindle Unlimited Pages read (KENP): 103K
Paid Units: 1013
Createspace sales: 112
Most Units Sold in a day: 119
Least Units Sold in a day: 16
Average Units Sold in a day: 33.76
Total sales: $2454

December Plans:

I don’t really like to set income goals for the months ahead. I think it’s a thing from when I used to play poker for a living, it’s out of your control how much you will sell, just like it’s out of your control how much you will win while playing poker. Sure you can put extra efforts in to try make more sales, put more books online, buy advertising etc, but at the end of the day, it’s the market that decides how much you will sell. All you should focus on is do your best and put out more volume, more grind, aka more books.

With that said, I would like to make $3000. But again, that’s up to the buyers to decide, some months are better than others, we will see! The most important goal for me is to put up at least 4 more books before December ends, making my total book count 20. I also ordered 3 fiction books and I expect to have at least two of them done before December ends. I haven’t really tried fiction before, so I’m excited to see if I can make it work. If I do, I’m sure I can increase my profits ahead since it’s easier to produce fiction and it’s cheaper to hire a fiction writer.

I’m also in the thinking process of creating a Kindle Marketing Course for more advanced publishers that already got the basics figured out. I see people everyday asking questions on how to get more sales, getting review etc. I know for a fact that VERY few kindle puublishers does what I do when it comes to marketing and promotion. I’ve taken a few courses when I started out to help me get to where I am today, but non of them really teached how to market and keep sales going over the long run. I had to figure that stuff out of my own.

I’m also thinking of opening up a Kindle Coaching Service. I’m getting questions almost everyday from people who have seen some of my informative posts in different Kindle forums and groups. I do love to teach things that I know, so I will definitelly start a service like this up sooner or later.

That’s all for now,
Cya!

Who Am I?

Who Am I?

You can call me Oz…

I’m a Swedish digital entrepreneur and I haven’t had a real job, since 2014 when I worked a few months in a factory. Prior and after that I used to play poker for a living. It wasn’t too glamorous. I love poker but grinding poker day after day kills the fun in it after a while and it basically becomes a job without benefits where you can lose money, but hey, at least you decide your own hours!

I’ve always wanted to be an entrepreneur and having my own business, but it took me a while to actually get going. The hardest part is to realize that you CAN do it! There are millions of people in the world who has started their own business and are able to make money online, so why wouldn’t I be able to do so too? I know my way around a computer and most of all, I know how to google, which is all you really need to learn today. So that’s what I did. I found a lot of methods and ideas on how to make money online, but I wanted a business and something that would make me location independent and would make me passive income month after month. If it’s not passive, it’s still a grind, and I didn’t want to trade my time for money.

I wanted to create an asset that would make me money month after month with me only spending time to maintain it.

I found Kindle.
Kindle books are EBooks that are selling on Amazon. Every time someone buys a Kindle book on Amazon, someone is earning a royalty on that sale. I decided to start my own book publishing company in order to sell Kindle books on Amazon, making passive income from book sales.

I published my first Kindle book in late March 2015 and made my first sale the same day. It was amazing! The sales kept going and I reinvest all the profits back into the business, creating more books, and more passive income sources. In November 2015, eight months later, I made more money that I ever did at my old shitty factory job.

I created this blog to track my progress and hopefully get some followers along the way.

Let’s all go to sleep a little bit richer than when we woke up!
