How To Sell Audible Books On Amazon
Publishing Your Book On Audible
Before you can sell anything, you’ve got to publish it and to sell an audiobook on Amazon, it needs to be published on Audible. Audible is an Amazon subsidiary that is responsible for audiobook distribution services to both authors and publishers.
To publish your book on Audible, navigate to the ACX website and create an account. Once you’ve got an account on ACX you’ll be able to upload your audiobook and provide some basic information about your audiobooks, such as title, description, and narrator.
Linking Your New Book To Your Seller Account
After your book has been published on Audible, you’ll need to link it to your Amazon seller account to make sure you are credited and paid properly. To link your new book to your seller account, click the “inventory” tab on your seller account, and click “add a product”. From there choose “Audible audiobook” and provide the ISBN or ASIN for your audiobook. Once that’s done, Amazon should link your seller account and the audiobook.
Pricing Your Audiobook
One of the most critical steps in publishing and selling a new Audiobook is to price it effectively. If a book is priced too high, shoppers may fail to see the value in it, but if it is priced too low, it may also bring about a similar suspicion. Amazon offers several pricing options, including a fixed price and royalty share. If you choose a royalty share, you’ll receive a percentage of the revenue from all future sales of your audiobook.
Promoting Your New Audiobook
To give your audiobook the best chance of maximizing sales on the platform, you should attempt to promote your book at every opportunity. Amazon itself offers several options to advertise your newly-published book, including sponsored products and brands. Additionally, using the email subscribers to your blog or promotion on vast social media networks can have a dramatic effect on sales of your book.
Marketing is the one step that you should never stop. Particularly if you are interested in publishing to create residual income streams. You should always be promoting your older works to your newer readers who may not be aware of them. This consistently builds your reader base and increases the potential for new sales over time.
