This week I speak with Kindlepreneur Dave Chesson who is an Amazon Kindle author and expert. He runs the blog Kindlepreneur (a play on words of “Kindle” and “Entrepreneur”) but before you start asking where are all the books by Dave on Kindle? Please note that he does not publish books under his own name. He uses a pen name for his different books to show that his strategies work no matter who you are. He has sold tons of books on the kindle platform and on this week's podcast he shares the secrets with everyone. We talk about increasing book sales, marketing strategies, on-demand printing, kindle SEO, and much much more.

IngramSpark Vs CreateSpace
Should you get your book printed on-demand from Createspace (a Amazon company) or Ingramspark? Read Dave's blog post on the matter here.Having a physical book order option for your kindle book is another way to sell more books.
How do you know what keywords to use for your own books? Kindle keywords are essential when it comes to self publishing. Choose the wrong ones and you are screwed but if you choose the right ones then you are in the money. Check out Dave's post on the matter here.
Promoting Your Ebook
Check out Dave's promotional strategies for your Kindle books and websites to promote your book on. Some of them only work if your book is on a free promotion but others work no matter what. Some of them are paid promotional sites and others choose if they will promote your book or not based on content etc.
Book Description Generator
Dave has created this awesome book description generator tool on his website. You can check it out here to create your own book descriptions quickly and easily.
Kindle Spy Research Software
The software we talk about in the episode is Kindle Spy which is a great software used for eBook research and sales tracking. It's also great for category analysis on Amazon for finding good categories for your next book.
