And if you don't already have an account, you can sign up for your account here, or you just enter your information. And I'm gonna go ahead and do that and I'll see you inside the platform. Okay, so here we are, the first thing you have to do is accept the terms and conditions last updated December 14 2012. So you go ahead and agree to those.

And then now we are signed in to the Amazon Kindle of direct publishing platform. So pretty much all you got to do is come over here and click add new title. So what you can do here is you can go ahead and click this box and this is going to allow you to enroll in KDP Select and KDP Select will give you the option to basically Make your book available to download for free for five days, so pretty cool way to kind of get noticed and give people value right out the gate. So I recommend you do that we've got a few stipulations. One is that you can't sell the book anywhere else for at least 90 days. Okay, so you just got to commit to the only use Kindle for 90 days, which, you know, shouldn't be a problem.

In most cases, you're gonna you're gonna be on Kindle owners lending library for the same period. And you'll earn your share of a monthly fun when readers borrow your books from the library. So that's pretty cool. And then you can also promote your book, like I said, for free up to five days during these 90 days, okay, so it's actually more so really cool deal. Just make sure you check that box and then you are good to go. They've also got some FAQ FAQ here, you can check out on the side.

But really, what you're going to do is enter your book title. Okay, and then put in your description. You can put in your addition number, if you've got multiple editions, your publisher, which is optional. This book is part of a series. So if you do the series that we talked about in the next module, then you'll know what I'm talking about. But this is a great way of having a series to kind of continue to provide value to your audience and continue to monetize them.

Make sure if in your description, use a couple of those keywords are the main keyword that you're looking to target. And then your title, make sure that title is compelling. You know, everybody knows that your headlines really important where your title is basically your headline here, so make sure you have a cool headline that's going to catch people's attention. When you should have a good cover that you got on Fiverr or designed yourself or had someone design that's compelling. It's only going to be two dimensional, but it's really going to go a long way to get attention for your book. All these are optional, your language your publication day is Being all optional.

Then your publishing rights you need to check whether or not this is public domain work or your own work, okay? If it's your own work, then you own the rights click that box and then target your book to customers here you're going to come in and add the categories. Okay? So you're going to add the specific categories you want your book to show up in, and then keywords. Okay, you'll come in here and you get up to seven keywords. Okay, it says optional.

This is a great way to make sure people find you when they're searching for specific books. It's also going to help you in the recommended section when you show up next to other books. And then upload your book cover. Okay, there's some book cover guidelines you can check out right here. You have to put something in even a placeholder. But I definitely recommend you have a nice compelling cover.

I mean, heck, we showed you how to do it for five bucks. So you know, if you don't already have something of your own, just jump over to Fiverr take a few days but they'll have something for you. the meantime you can use the placeholder But hey, that you know, being able to utilize this feature in the KDP. And, you know, promoting your book for free for five days, during the 90 days, you know, you wanna make sure you have that cover and everything kind of optimized. And then basically just come down here and you'll upload your book file. Okay, so just upload book right here, you can browse for your book on your computer, but really, really simple.

I mean, they've made this stupid simple, it's very easy to use. Just go back through this video in the previous videos, and just get you a good cover. Kind of brainstorm a good title. You know, if you've got a ghostwriter, you know, work with them to make sure that you have a good compelling title. That's going to get people to want to look into your book. And then also make sure that the introduction to your book is really compelling and gets people to want to continue to read I mean, just think about books that you've been interested in reading in your genre and in your field.

Think about books that you've opened up and put down and just said, You know what, I don't want to read this. It's usually because of the title because of the image because of the introduction, maybe the first chapter. So all these are very, very important. And your description, you get 4000 words. Okay, so you got plenty of space to say what you need to say. Yeah, that's pretty much it.

Go ahead and get your book uploaded. And then in the next module, we're going to talk about actually, you know, marketing and promoting your book and monetizing it and creating a big following and a big list. So thanks for watching this video and I'll see you in the next video.
