Is Amazon publishing worth it?

Well, let me answer that with a story about Bob.

Bob was sick and tired of being broke and corporate. After working for the man for almost a decade, he realized that each day that passed him by, he wasn’t getting any closer to living his dream life.

He used to yearn to travel the world, see the sights, have more money in the bank and have time to pursue his hobbies of fly fishing and sailing. Now Bob just finds himself stuck in traffic on Los Angeles’ Interstate 5, listening to podcasts from other people who are traveling the world and sucking in exhaust fumes. Ugh. Is this really what life is all about, Bob asks himself.

So one day, Bob finally did something about it. He got connected with a group of people who were starting online self-publishing businesses. They were using their knowledge and life stories to create eBooks that were actually selling. Bob educated himself on how to create eBooks that would resonate with people and help them overcome their problems. He learned how to write a successful book and after he published it, it started selling. He then wrote another book, and another, until he had multiple income streams and he could finally quit that job he hated so much.

Now Bob’s lost weight, he’s a successful entrepreneur, he’s making more money than ever before and, instead of commuting in soul-crushing traffic, he’s traveling the world exploring the Great Pyramids of Egypt and climbing Machu Picchu. All while running his business from his laptop and a strong Wi-Fi connection.

We Have a Confession to Make…

Okay, time for us to fess up. Bob’s not real. We just made him up for a catchier intro. But Bob does represent the true stories of real-life students who have taken our self-publishing course. Normal people just like you who woke up one morning and decided to take their life in a different direction. To do something about it!

Today might be that day for you. Today might be a turning point when you start to reignite those long-lost dreams and do something bigger with your life. You know you’re capable of it, you just need a guide to show you the steps.

We’ll be your guide. We’ll show you how you can live the life of your dreams by using Amazon’s self-publishing platform.

Let’s take a look at how everyday people have created an online business and making money self-publishing on Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP).

Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing

Our Story

Nothing makes us happier at than helping people unlock their hidden talents, lean into the potential and build the life of their dreams.

Here’s a quick summary of our story. We started small with one eBook on Amazon and then eventually built up a bunch of books that started selling. We got kind of hooked on the process once we saw that success was possible. Even though we made some publishing mistakes and there was a little bit of a learning curve, we realized that it was easier than we thought. It even eventually became kind of fun.

We eventually had so much success with Amazon self-publishing that we decided to share our knowledge and expertise with others so they could also benefit.

We have a ton of articles showing you how to get started and build up an online business that makes you real money. We’ve also put together a free course that walks you through how to publish on Amazon.

And if you’ve never heard of us, that’s okay. We’re not offended. You can read some reviews for to check out what others are saying about our materials.

Or you can head over to TrustPilot.

Now let’s read about a few people who have done the work and found success through self-publishing.

Three Success Stories

We’re going to look at just three success stories of people who have taken our course and launched an online publishing business. There are many more we could include.

A Passion for Children

We’ll start with Yasmin. Yasmin took our course and realized that she wanted to try something new. She used her passion for helping children with speech development and wrote a book titled “Speech Therapy for Toddlers: Develop Early Communication Skills with 137 GAMES designed by a Speech and Language Therapist.

Yasmin published under the author’s name “Kids SLT Publications,” which just goes to show that you don’t even have to use your real name when self-publishing.

Yasmin currently has 142 Amazon reviews with an average rating of 4.1 stars. Her book is also ranked #81 in the book category “Family Activity” and #250 in “Early Childhood Education.”

Here is a short excerpt from her Amazon book summary:

“Early and social interaction skills are essential for every child to get the best start in life. Skills like language, eye contact, and self-regulation are just some of the things your child needs in order to excel—personally and academically!

“Since the pandemic, both parents and teachers are becoming more concerned about children’s abilities to interact. On top of that, there are delays in referrals to specialists.

“According to the Education Endowment Fountain, in September 2020, 20-25% of children starting school needed help with language skills compared with the previous year.

“Are you worried that your child isn’t showing the typical social interaction skills for their age? Are you waiting for a referral and frustrated there isn’t more you can do? Is your child receiving speech and language therapy, but do you want to do more for them?”

Now for the moment you’ve waited for. Yasmin is making an average of $1,300 a month from just this one book. Not bad for one eBook!

Level Up Your Canning Skills

Ever wanted to level up your water bath canning skills? Well, Colby Summerlin has you covered and he’s our next example of a self-publishing success story.

He used his knowledge and curiosity about canning and turned it into cold hard cash. Colby’s book is titled “The Beginners Water Bath Canning Recipe Book.” His eBook has only been out since around December 2022 and it’s already making $1,400 a month in passive income. From just one eBook. Pretty impressive—and tasty!

The subtitle adds more details about what readers will get out of it: “Easy Homemade, To-The-Point Recipes for Canning and Preserving Pickles, Salsa, Jams, Jellies, Butters and More.” And here’s a section of his book listed on Amazon:

“Do you have loads of veggies piling up because you can’t eat them fast enough? Are you looking for a way to preserve those veggies for winter so you don’t throw them out? Well, you have found the right book. We believe in self-reliance, preserving our harvest, and clean eating. This book will provide the tools and knowledge needed to succeed at water bath canning.”

“There are over 110 different recipes neatly tucked away in the pages of this book. Some of these recipes may be common, but you will also find many unique recipes you may have never heard of, like rose petal jelly.

“Along with the recipes, you will also have access to support for any water bath canning-related questions you may have. How is this, you may be wondering; well, we have a community of over 77,000 canners from all over the globe, with all different backgrounds and experience levels.”

Colby picked a niche topic for his eBook that millions of people can relate to. Everyone struggles to use up the food they buy and not waste it. Colby found a way to help people solve this problem through water canning. His eBook has 275 Amazon reviews and an average star rating of 4.9 out of 5.

All of this is resulting in constant royalties hitting his bank account. You can do the same thing!

10k a Month Club

The $10k Club

We saved one of the best examples for last—even though all the examples are great. One of the purposes of our self-publishing course is to show you how to make enough to quit your day job. We don’t want this just to be your next side hustle, something that only brings in a little extra. And this next example shows you how this is all possible.

Chevon K. Patrick wanted to educate people about how they could get ahead in life by learning how the credit game works. His eBook, “The Credit Game: Plays We Were Never Taught,” is bringing in an average of $10,000 a month. Incredible! And it was all possible through the resources and education in our course.

Check out Chevon’s book Amazon description to read how she is marketing it to potential readers:

“Here’s how to play the credit game so you can save more money and get the best deals while minimizing risks.

“Are you frustrated because your loan application always gets rejected due to a low credit score? Are you wondering how you can increase your credit score so banks and creditors will lend you the amount of money you need?...

“Whether you’re about to open your first credit account or you just want to improve an existing one, it’s always a smart decision to know how you can use your credit to your advantage…

“It may take some extra strategic thinking at first, but you will greatly benefit from it. A good credit score will allow you to borrow the amount of money you need with less friction from a creditor….

“Let this book guide you on what you should do to minimize the risks and maximize the benefits.

“Inside, you will discover:

  • How rich people use credit to build their wealth by employing these 2 simple strategies
  • The most powerful force in the universe according to Albert Einstein (hint: you’ll be surprised it’s not about physics) — and how you can use this to grow your money tenfold
  • How you can benefit from having a good credit score — and what to do to increase it
  • The bills you should pay off first to get your interest payments down and cut your losses
  • 5 ways banks and creditors determine whether or not to lend you money and at what interest rate
  • How to pay your creditor strategically (you’ll save a lot of money if you do this!)
  • How to build your credit score fast while paying little to no interest and without the risk of losing your assets
  • What harms your credit score big time — and what you can do to avoid this risk
  • How to dispute errors on your credit report — see a sample of a dispute letter you may send to a credit bureau to effectively resolve the issue
  • Telephone scripts you can use with your credit card company to negotiate better terms
  • And much more.”

Just like the water canning eBook, this book solves a real problem for people with financial difficulties. It resonates with those who are looking for a helping hand when it comes to navigating their financial path. Chevon’s eBook is ranked #26 in Amazon’s category of “Credit Ratings & Repair,” #60 in the category “Education Funding” and it has 128 reviews with an average of 4.8 out of 5 stars.

These three examples are just the tip of the money-making iceberg. They show how you can use Amazon’s KDP platform to build the life of your dreams.

How Changed Chevon’s Life

Let’s close with one final quote from a testimonial Chevon wrote about the power of self-publishing on Amazon:

“Joining AIA [’s course] has officially changed my life. Without this course, there’s no way I would have been able to pull this off. And the craziest part is the timing of it all—so divine.

“I’ve been gauging and calculating all month, and I wasn’t sure I would make it, but I hit the goal [$10,000 in royalties] with less than 24 hours to spare. The next milestone is 15k per month and then 20K. It’s all up from here and I give BIG THANKS to Rasmus Mikkelsen and Christian Mikkelsen for making it possible. This is a real game-changer, especially for only being 7 months in and with one book!”
