Would You Like to Have Your Own Calculator on Your Computer?

My team and I just created Publisher Rocket, a book idea validation software that not only uses the calculator above but also helps you to find book ideas that will sell.  It does this by finding popular search terms on both Amazon AND Google plus the following:

  • Tells you how many people per month type the keyword into Google
  • Tells you how many people per month type the keyword into Amazon (SUPER new feature)
  • Gives a score from 1-99 telling you how competitive a kindle keyword is
  • Tells you how much money other books are making
  • Gives you key data so as to beat those books and rank better

Plus this Kindle publishing software works on both MAC and PC.

KDP Rocket is available now for ONLY $97.  We are offering it as a one time fee, but soon it will become a subscription.  So lock in that lifetime access, one-time fee now!

How to effectively use the KDP Calculator Numbers

Knowing the numbers is great, but knowing how to use them or when to use them can really take you to the next level.

The following are a couple of ways or situations in which the calculation can come in handy:

Check for Kindle Keywords or Categories

As you do your research to find effective keywords for your ebook’s sales page, this calculator can help to tell you if the results in a keyword search are profitable. You don’t want to target a Keyword phrase or Category that isn’t making sales.

Check Another Author’s Credibility

Sadly we operate in a self-publishing world where many marketers make false claims. I am sure we have all heard it… “yeah, I make 6 figures with my books every month” or something along those lines. If that is the case, go ahead and plug their ebook’s rank number into the plugin and see what comes up. Be careful though, the rank number changes frequently.

Kindle Sales Rank Goals

Just being able to see the target “books per day” can be a real difference maker and help an author set up their publishing goals. Instead of being a mythical number, you can now have a better understanding of what to expect and what is attainable.

Book Title Generators – Coming up with the perfect book title can be maddening. Yet having a catchy title is crucial to getting noticed (and remembered). Thankfully, there are awesome tools called Book Title Generators that help you find the right title for your book.

Grammarly Review: Grammarly is a grammar checker on steroids.  It doesn't replace a book editor, but it can be a valuable tool to help you correct your writing as you go, and ensure that your editor doesn't have as many headaches.  But how does it compare to Word's checker?

    Hi Dave, it seems that the KDP calculator isn’t working. I can’t type anything into the text box. I am using the latest version of Chrome on a PC if that helps.

    1. Dave Chesson

      Could be a plugin on your browser blocking it. Try a different browser.

    Hi, thanks for all this info! As a mainly YA fantasy writer, I found some generic useful information about book publishing- but nothing specific to genres. Which is fine. But- actually I have no idea why I’m writing this comment, sooo. . .

    1. Dave Chesson

      Well, hopefully you’ll find that many of the tactics here are applicable to all genres.

  3. Marianne Petersen

    Yay – Now it makes sense how the calculator works! I kept thinking the number was how many books sold and the calculator divided it up to tell us how many per day it took to get to that number. But now I know what the number we copy and past is. Now I know thus now I like it even more. Thanks.

    Great help you’ve given me thus far having started Published Rocket a few days ago.
    You may have answered this question already but I’m just gonna ask here. I can’t but ask how you come up with the number for the calculator. Do you work with a certain number to divide the rank number up with? What if it’s a one-year book verses a 4-year book? I can’t help but wonder as I get my brain to figure out how all your wonderful helpful info works.

    1. Dave Chesson

      I see you found the answer 🙂
