How to Sell Your Blog on Amazon's Kindle

Note: Thanks to Louise Wise for finding this great article!

The Amazon Kindle isn't just for ebooks—did you know that Kindle users can also subscribe to newspapers, magazines and blogs? In fact, you can subscribe to my Savvy Book Marketer blog in the Kindle store.

If you're looking for additional exposure on Amazon.com and the chance to earn revenue from your blog, consider offering your blog by subscription on Kindle.

Remember, people don't have to own a Kindle device to read ebooks and other material from the Kindle store. Anyone can download a free Kindle app that works on PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, Blackberry, or Android or Windows phones. Why would anyone pay to subscribe to your blog when they can read it for free online? In a word: convenience. Sure, your readers can subscribe to your blog's RSS feed at no charge, but then they have to remember to visit their feed reader or RSS folders on Outlook to read the incoming posts. If they receive their feeds via email, it's just one more email in a crowded in-box. Many people subscribe to multiple blogs, which multiples the problem.

  1. This is interesting, L Anne. Blogs on Kindle. Maybe blog comments next or is that part of the package? :-)

    Seriously, I can see its benefits. When I get a Kindle, I just might take a look at the idea.

    Thanks for raising awareness of this.
