I know I can get $27 on google with an adwords campaign and my well done landing page.
Will that preclude me from staying on KDP at $8.97 ?
Will advertising on another platform at a higher price for the same book create issues ?
Do I take it off KDP altogether to go to Google ( or Yahoo) ?
Thanks in advance.

Also, if you want to get off of the KDP select program, you have to positively opt out of it!

You have to do this before the renewal date otherwise, you will automatically be renewed for another 90 day term (sentence).

Then on July 14th, you can do anything you want. Until then, you have to abide by the program.

Do I have to maintain the same price as it is on KDP or can the same book be more on another platform ?

If you go lower anywhere else, Amazon will drop your Amazon price to match, whether you want them to or not.

For example, you're $3 on Amazon and $2 somewhere else for a week. Amazon will probably find that lower price and match you to $2. When the week is up, you go back to $3 somewhere else but Amazon can stay stuck at $2 for a couple months. That's the gamble with price matching.

If you want to go higher or lower, change your price on amazon as well. You can advertise all you want. You just can't put it up for sale someplace else until the KDP contract is up. When my contract was up I got out of KDP and can do what I want, most of the publiehers will price match a lower price.

You can change your price on amazon right now, then when the 14th comes around you already got that done.

I am $8.97 on Amazon. I plan on easily selling as a stand alone with a landing page on Google for $27.97. My niche has the disposable income.
So, I doubt KDP will care.
