Mini-Quiz: Kindle Royalty Percentage

by Ron Kurtus (2 July 2012)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. What impression does a low price for your e-book make on the buyer?

The person may think it is of low quality

The buyer may think you are just stupid to sell a book for so cheap

The person may think it is a used e-book

2. Why isn't $2.98 a good price for your e-book?

Most people don't want to bother with small change

No one has ever tried to sell a book at that price

For a penny more, you could jump from 35% royalty to 70%

3. Why would you give away your e-book for free?

Because you just want to get rid of your extra copies

It may be a good way to garner interest in the book

It is a bad idea to give anything away for free

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Self-Publishing. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
