I'll show you some of the best strategies for ranking books, publishing, selling, and getting reviews for them.

Here is the step-by-step process I will cover for Kindle Direct Publishing on Amazon:
1. Get a KDP account
It's completely free to sign up and this is where you will publish books.
2. Find a good niche you could rank in
Find a niche (preferably nonfiction) that goes after people who have a specific need that they really need to fill.
3. Keyword research
Go for less competition and lots of monthly searches to help increase the likelihood of being the top book in search results.
4. Make the title more compelling than competition
Make your book title jump out at them and make them almost have to click it because it sounds so good.
5. Get a professional book cover
Either do the book cover yourself if you're artistic or outsource it.
6. Write a 15 page book at minimum
You don't need to write a novel until you've tested out the market for the subject. Don't make it a crummy first version either though.
7. Format everything correctly
If you want to market other books and include links, make the book an .epub file type.
8. Publish with proper settings
Make sure you go for categories you can rank in, write a description that is well thought out, and have a good pen name for the niche your book covers. Start the price very low ($0.99).
9. Get reviews and market it
Reviews are what really rank your book on Amazon. Don't ever buy reviews or get friends and family to do them though. Amazon has cracked down on those strategies.

10. Increase price after first 10 or so reviews
After you are ranking your book in the top 3 or so results, raise the price to $2.99 or whatever you think the book is worth so it will start making some money.
