January Income Report

January sales from my publishing company was very good, better then I expected actually!

December 2015 Income Report

December was yet again a new record month for my business success. Which was expected with the holiday sales. I crushed the $3000 sales mark that I was hoping for in December with big margins so I’m really happy with the month and I got some big plans for January. I also released my 20th book the 31st! Not bad to make this amount of money with just 20 books huh? Non of them are even on ACX yet! But that will change soon as I’m creating an Audiobook version of all my books that hopefully will sell good, I think most of my books are in a great niche for this market.

The percentage means how much the increase was from the previous month.

December Numbers:
Kindle Unlimited Pages read (KENP): 191k (+85%)
Paid Units: 1086 (+7.2%)

Most Units Sold in a day: 72
Least Units Sold in a day: 18
Average Units Sold in a day: 35
Total sales: $3764 (+53.4%)

I will write a bigger post about my January and 2016 goals soon!

November was my best month so far since I started my book publishing business on Kindle.

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,
