Niches which sell well are connected with these themes: wealth, health, self-help, fitness, gym fitness, fiction (children stories niche is very lucrative), food i.e. cooking, how-to ebooks, real estate, fashion, relationship, romance, erotic, etc…

2. Eyecatching title, subtitle and description

And put some important keywords into title, subtitle and description of your ebook.

Setting price is also very important thing. Amazon offers 2 options for setting price of your ebook:
You can choose between these 2 options:
1. 35% royalty
2. 70% royalty (this option is only available in USA, Canada, UK, Germany France, and a few other countries)
If you choose 70% royalty – your ebook must be priced from 2.99 to 9.99 $. If you choose 35% royalty – your ebook can be priced from 9.99 to 200.00 $.
I suggest you to choose 35% royalty and set price of your ebook around and up to 9.99 $, since books with price over 9.99 $ have payout of only 35%. This means that you will have to sell your ebook with price set over 20 $ in order to earn more then you would with selling it for 9 $.
And ebooks that are mostly selling on Amazon have price within range from 9 to 12 $.
5. Write good ebook with quality content

This is content which can be modified, sold, resold or repurposed freely, and it is not copyrighted.
They made ebooks using many PLR articles. In But in many cases this resulted with their ebooks being suspended and deleted from Amazon Kindle store, since they lacked quality, what resulted inh getting negative comments and buyers asking Amazon to refund their money. And finaly Amazon suspended and deleted these ebooks from Amazon Kindle store.
And now Amazon Kindle website checks all published content against already published ebooks and against many PLR sources on internet wheather published content is original or if it is scraped, and if it finds that content is not original it will be suspended and deleted.
