Most people don’t realize just how many industries are amplified by Amazon, including self-publishing. This isn’t just a million-dollar pie, either. We’re talking billions. So, why not take a slice for yourself?

You are formally invited to our free publishing pro webinar! Discover the exact blueprint for using AI to tap into Amazon’s multi-billion-dollar market with no tech, writing, or marketing experience required. 

Fact #1: Amazon is the world’s largest book retailer and publishing platform. 

Amazon has established more than a dozen international book markets, meaning you can get even more eyes on your books. 

Here’s the list: 

  • United States
  • United Kingdom
  • Germany
  • France
  • Spain
  • Italy
  • Japan
  • Brazil
  • Mexico
  • Australia
  • Canada
  • Netherlands
  • India

Fact #2: Since the start of Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited program, authors and self-publishers have taken home over $1.1 billion in book royalties. 

Is Kindle Direct Publishing legit? The answer is yes. Self-publishers on the platform have taken home more than $1.1 billion in book royalties.

And take this. Kindle Unlimited is just ONE of Amazon’s many programs that pay self-publishers to house their books on their platform. You can also make money through their Audible ACX program by selling audiobook versions of your print or hardcover books. 

Fact #3: Amazon makes roughly $28 billion in book sales each year. 

Now, imagine what that number will look like with the help of AI. 

Can artificial intelligence completely write, edit, format, and sell your book for you? No, not yet anyway. But what it can do is speed up the publishing process 100x by going to work doing customer research, helping you create optimized book titles, and even producing images at the click of a button. 

There’s a reason Google, Microsoft, and Amazon are all investing in their own AI research. 

Fact #4: Amazon sells an average of 300 million print books per year. 

This number only includes print books. Think of how many hard cover, eBook, and audiobooks are also out there making people money. And there are still thousands of untapped niches out there hiding in plain sight!

Fact #5: Amazon is projected to own almost 3/4s of the book industry by 2025. 

Many people don’t know that Amazon originally started as a book company, and that’s where they’re investing their time and money. If you’re looking for the right time to enter the market, the best time is yesterday. And the second best time is today!

Fact #6: is paving the way for self-publishing on Amazon.

After earning the Inc. 5000 honor as the #19 fastest-growing company in America in 2023, is leading the industry in publishing technology with

While still in Beta access, the AI publishing software has already produced comprehensive customer research, optimized book outlines, and full-length original manuscripts for dozens of its first-time users. 

Here’s what they had to say: 

I have been so impressed with all the steps this tool combines into one. It's very easy to use and steps you through the process from conception to finished manuscript.

It's unbelievable that such quality and detail can be created by a machine. Not only that, but the writing style of the manuscript tool actually reads like a passionate human wrote it - it's incredible! is revolutionary in seeing a book published in record time. They took what was already an in-depth program and made it so the publisher has even more control over the quality of the book that is created, not to mention the amount of money you can save in the process. There are no more excuses to publish once you make your initial investment into the program.

Fact #7: Self-published books account for 31% of Amazon’s eBook sales

Only publishing your book in one format might lose you thousands of dollars per month. Let that sink in. There’s no reason you shouldn’t have an eBook, audiobook, and print version of all of your works to reach different types of readers. 

Fact #8: As of 2018, Amazon published more than 91.5% of all self-published books in the U.S.

This statistic is insane and proves just how far Amazon has come. KDP is THE place to be for self-publishers (and not just in the United States either). 

Fact #9: Self-publishing authors have the option to publish their work in 40 languages.

Translating your work isn’t as easy as running it through a free online translator, but it is one smart business move as long as you’re investing in quality. 

Fact #10: Amazon acquired Audible in 2008 for $300 million, which made it the biggest audiobook retailer worldwide. 

We’re all BUSY these days. Some readers just don’t have the time to sit down with a print book. They need to be able to get all their knowledge and information on the go. There’s so much potential in the audiobook realm.
