Micromanaging my distribution channels
I am looking for advice on changing the distribution network on one of my books as a marketing method to learn more about how things work. I will explain.
Right now all of my books are published through Lulu and distributed to all channels as well. What I want to do is remove my one free ebook from being distributed to Amazon and then submit it to Amazon directly through KDP. The idea being I can learn then how KDP works and I can also micromanage the Catagories directly as well as the keywords which I can also update in a quick fashion. The idea being I can then work out a formula for good Categorization and keyword format in a far shorter space of time rather than continually submitting changes to Lulu and waiting for them to be forwarded on to Amazon and then wondering when Amazon will get it done. The keywords in particular dont show up on any Amazon page if you dont submit directly through them.
So my question is this, can I declick the tick to the left of the Amazon channel on the distribution page and then immediately submit my ebook to Amazon, or do I have to wait a period of time?
Looking forward to replies, thanks!
