How Many Books Do I Need to Sell to Become a Kindle Bestseller?

Marnie Pehrson, the creator of IgnitePoint.com, wrote an interesting article recently at Future of Ink that I just had to share with those of you who are just a wee bit curious just how many books you'd have to sell to become a Kindle bestseller.

As Marnie points out and I agree, it's not as hard as you think.  I've had many authors become Amazon bestsellers in the Kindle store.  Watch this video in which Marnie illustrates a really cool tool you can use that will determine just how many Kindle books you'd have to sell each day to attain bestseller status in the categories of your choice:





Is that the coolest thing or what?  Take the bestselling book in your category in the Kindle store, put the ranking in KDP Calculator and see how many books it is selling and do a little experimenting to see which categories would be best for your book in order to try for that #1 position!
