Kindle Countdown Deals - New Tool For KDP Publishers

Posted by raymondo | Posted on 18/08/2016 at 22:20:14

Just had this email from Amazon. If you have a book published with them via KDP you can now create discount deals to promote your book. It's free to do and can be a great way to get exposure for your book.

I know this won't apply to everyone but even if you don't have a book published with them it's still worth checking out the link I've posted as you can get decent deals on other ebooks.

The email I received is below:


We are excited to introduce our newest KDP Select benefit – Kindle Countdown Deals. This is a new book promotion tool that lets you provide readers with time-bound promotional discounts for your Kindle books, available on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.

Here are some of the benefits of Kindle Countdown Deals:

Set time-bound promotions – You control how long your book is discounted. The time remaining for your promotion will be visible for customers to help generate excitement for the price discount.
Customers get a great deal – Your customers will see the great deal they're getting with the regular price included on the book's detail page, right beside the promotional price.
Retain a 70% royalty rate – You will earn royalties based on your regular royalty rate and the promotional price. As a result, if you are using the 70% royalty option, you'll earn 70% even if the price is below $2.99.
Increase discoverability – Customers can easily browse live Kindle Countdown Deals at www.amazon.com/kindlecountdowndeals – a great way for you and your books to get discovered.
Monitor performance in real-time – A new KDP report displays sales and royalties at each price discount side-by-side with pre-promotion performance, so you can compare results.

Visit your KDP Bookshelf and click on "Manage Benefits" to get started.

Kind regards,
The Kindle Direct Publishing Team

It's well worth checking out these deals regularly as they have some pretty decent titles coming up for grabs for very cheap prices.
