Kindle Publishing Why Publish your Book on Kindle

Kindle Publishing – Why Publish your Book on Kindle?

Unless you’re Stephenie Meyer, Dan Brown, or JRR Tolkien, you won’t be able to have the same success as they did when you publish your own book. Needless to say, you’d need more than a good manuscript to impress publishers or your agent. Thankfully, technology has made it possible for authors looking to make a name for themselves to publish their content digitally. One of the proponents of digital publishing is Kindle and its Kindle Publishing Program, which allows authors to publish digital copies of their novels and essays and distribute it to the Kindle network.
While authors may find it attractive to publish their work digitally, Internet marketers should not ignore Kindle’s program, and here’s why:

1.) The age of eBooks is at hand – Authors have claimed that the arrival of eBooks is threatening the life of printed books. The question as to whether or not printed and digital books can live together is yet to be answered. Most of the technology present today, from smartphones to tablets to Kindle, has allowed users to view digital copies of their favourite books.
2.) Your books need not be as long as a traditional book – Quality content is one of the most important factors that will guarantee your eBook’s success. When you have an eBook about Internet marketing that’s only 50 pages yet packed with quality, it’s going to beat books that are 300 pages thicker that have no substance. … Read more

All Along the Digital Watchtower

All Along the Digital Watchtower

It’s no secret interactive (web-based) marketing has arrived. The IDC research group just released a study in late June of this year indicating 99.9% of a survey of executives and entrepreneurs said they currently conduct online marketing activities, or, are in the process of implementing or initiating some form of interactive marketing. The problem or challenge that many of these executives (marketing, management, etc.) and entrepreneurs (marketing, principals, etc.) have is how do they measure their online presence?
Most interactive marketing types, whether they are agencies working for/with clients or in-house personnel, typically just measure a company’s return for a specific process or period of time. Many never think to actively monitor what a company’s competitive position is vis-à-vis Search Engines or Directory Listings, the number of links they have pointing back to their web site or what type of “net buzz” is being generated (positive or negative) via the Usenet/Newsgroup community. In short, its digital warfare and the fog of war is obscuring the battle lines.
Entrepreneurial competitive intelligence sounds like a real mouthful, or much more than it is. Basically it’s using off-the-shelf tools (software or ASP services) to understand what your page 1-3 keyword rankings are versus:
your direct competitors via the top tier Search Engines (Google, AltaVista, Excite, AOL/NetFind, HotBot, Netscape, Magellan, Lycos, Web Crawler)
how and where your company is listed via the blue chip Directories (Yahoo, LookSmart, Open Directory)
what’s your link popularity (number of links pointing back to … Read more
