The learning curve with Kindle

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012

We’ve been doing all sorts of interesting stuff with Kindle, uploading a total of 20 back issues to the Amazon platform, plus uploading our all-time best selling book, Emergency Preparedness and Survival Guide (EPSG). Within the coming week I expect we’ll have my book, Can America Be Saved from Stupid People, uploaded to Kindle.

To date, 15,194 people have downloaded four of the back issues FREE, as part of the KDP Select promotion program Kindle runs. This week I’ll probably let people download our EPSG book. This all has to do with getting the conversation going about BHM products on the internet.

It’s an interesting learning curve, but things are beginning to look bright for us on the Kindle horizon. Click here to see one of our back issues on Kindle.

And if you click on this link, you can see that, by at least one narrow measure for a specific category, we’re doing pretty well at an early stage in the process. This list has a couple of our back issues ranked No. 12 and No. 14 on the Amazon best-selling list, at least for this category.

I’m doing most of the promotion and announcing of our moves with Kindle on the BHM Facebook page. So if you want to keep up to date with it, you’ll have to check that out occasionally.

 

There’s a lot to learn but we’re on the right road.

    I don’t use Facebook or Google+, certainly could, but chose not to.

    I don’t want to sound like a Luddite, but I am one of those folks who has been around computers and on-line communication since the Compuserve/Genie days. I will continue to lick my electronic stamps and stick with email.

    I may use Kindle at some point, but regardless of that I hope that you will continue to maintain a web-presence such as this for us who don’t use on-line social media.

    Thanks for all you do.
