This is another great way to attract clients, get known, gain visibility and credibility.
My husband has transformed himself into a novelist (Die Laughing, Future Schlock: 2047, and his 3rd novel will be Azteca) and while searching for publishing options, put his first book for sale through Amazon's Kindle store. It costs nothing to do this, it's great marketing, and so far he's sold several copies.
So I wondered if it would be possible to make my ebook Content Marketing with Blogs available on Kindle. It is, but you have to charge a fee.
You can buy it here for $1 and take it with you on your Kindle:
So my ebook, available here for free, costs $1 if you buy it through Amazon to download to your Kindle. Why would anyone spend $1 for a free ebook? Well, you can put it on your Kindle and read it while traveling.
Which got me to thinking, why can't other marketers with cornerstone content make their ebooks available as a Kindle book?
Each book submission is reviewed for acceptance, so I'm not sure you can have a lot of marketing in your book. To be safe, I took out any overt marketing pitches for the Kindle edition, but left in my company contact info.
It takes about 5 days to get the content reviewed and transformed into Kindle coding. Of course, just having it there doesn't do much, unless you promote it. But having a book on Kindle does lend visibility, credibility and provides a seamless selling platform. You keep half the revenues, Amazon keeps the other half.
Go over to Amazon Kindle and do searches for books in your field, see what you come up with. This may be another way to get viewers to read your stuff.
