How To Sell Low Content Paperback Books on Amazon KDP
Selling low content paperback books on Amazon has been the easiest and best side business I’ve started in the last 10 years.
I started creating the books in April. In May, I sold around 20 and made around $20. In June, I sold nearly 250 units and only made just over $100. In July, I sold over 450 units and made over $530. And all this with less than 250 books in my catalog.
In August I made $680; September: $660; October: $800; November: $1450 with around 650 books live. December was $3700+. I’ve not seen a trajectory like this in a new business before. Ever.
What am I talking about?
To be honest, it took me a while to wrap my head around this business. I couldn’t believe that people would spend $6.99 on a hundred paged blank paperback. But they do.
What are the products, exactly?
“Low content books” which are books like diaries, logbooks and journals. Basically any book where the content can be fairly easily created as opposed to a book that you have to write. There are so many niches out there!
You literally provide a PDF of the interior and exterior of the book and create a product page on Amazon and that’s it!
To be successful in this business there are two things you need to do:
identify niches/keywords that have sufficiently high demand and low competition to make books for
create visually appealing book covers
The niches/keywords can be found by searching on Amazon and using free browser extensions. Multiple products can be created on Amazon very quickly with zero cost. This means that you get to understand the power of keywords on Amazon… and how to profit from them!
You can do it!
You don’t need to spend any money to do this! I’ll show you how to do everything:
You just need to have an account on KDP. (This can be set up instantly as long as you come from one of the 100 countries that are allowed to sell on Amazon).
I provide a 2 Microsoft Word and 2 Google Slides templates to get you going with the interiors.
The covers can be created with free software such as Canva.
And I’ll show you how to do the niche/keyword research on Amazon.
