Monetising the Kindle Market - Making money with Amazon's Kindle with blogs

I've lately been experimenting with a somewhat new business model of the Kindle, the ereader device from Amazon. As well as being able to publish your own books of the platform and keep 70% of the sales price, you are also able to sell blog feeds. These are either priced at 99p or £1.99. This means if you own a popular blog you can get subscribers to pay you 99p a month and they will get every new post delivered to their Kindle, wherever they are in the world.

I have my own blog that does this relating to the kindle itself meaning that every person who is on the store is part of my target market, I also found a niche in the market and am the only blog that provides certain things. Couple this with amazon associates links, offer an email subscribe option, and now anytime anyone buys one of my recommendations I get a small percentage, including when someone buys a Kindle.

The only downsides are that Amazon keeps 70% of blog subscription prices meaning earnings are just 29p a month per subscriber and the market is still relatively small meaning less than £50 a month at the moment. However it is something - it may not be a lot but it is something small, mix this with other forms of income or have several blogs and you could start making a decent amount per month for only a few hours of work every week
