Why Publishing Wide Is Better | Don’t Go Exclusive with KDP | 2020 % of Book Sales Outside Amazon

Recap progress from “The case for going wide”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ijOuEzHDtj4
Had a 50/50 Amazon/Non-Amazon Royalty Split in 2019.

For 2020:
45.46% of Royalties from KDP
53.09 of Royalties from KDP or ACX (Amazon ecosystem)

Why/How did things change in 2020 from 2019?
-Slight increase in % from Amazon, but not much.
-Added new sales channels with PayHip (link to video)
-Added Findaway Voices (had that live for a hot minute in 2019, most of it was live in 2020)
-Adding all backlist to IngramSpark too

These are just the royalties for my books as a part of my business. Because I also do coaching, formatting, this channel, etc. I have other lines of business as well. Taking it all into consideration, Amazon becomes an even small piece of the pie.
