What is Amazon KDP?
As mentioned already, Amazon KDP stands for Amazon Direct Publishing. Formally called CreateSpace, the KDP makes it possible for people to self-publish their books. We know Kindle as Amazon Trademark’s e-reader. But don’t be deceived, the KDP publishes both digital and physical books. Isn’t that awesome?
Also, Amazon KDP is an on-demand publishing platform. This means Amazon will not print a book until a customer demands it.
What are low-content books?
Low content books are books with very little or no content inside. They have hard covers and specially designed pages to suit the purposes. Generally, low-content books only provide working/guided workspaces to develop one’s content. Examples of low-content books are;
- Line books
- Coloring books
- Note pads
- Blank sheet music
- Doodle Books for kids
- Writing/Composition books for kids
- To-do list books
- Log Books
- Trackers, etc.
Low-content books are very easy to create. and you don’t need any special skill to create one. While skills like graphic design are needed to create an attractive cover, you, however, don’t need to worry about not being one. You can choose to outsource to freelance graphic designers or learn to use simple graphics tools. I will mention a few of them in the coming session.
Also, selling low-content books on Amazon is 100% free. Shipping and printing costs will be deducted from the prices of the book hence you don’t have to pay out of pocket. Once a buyer makes an order, Amazon does the printing and delivery for you. The best part is you get to decide the prices of your book, and after all deductions are made, you will see how much you earn per book.

I know you might already be asking yourself “But do people like this stuff?”. Well, I am sorry to disappoint you, but the answer is a resounding “YES”. With over 300 niches of low-content books selling hot on Amazon, you can be sure this is a profitable business.
Selling Low content books is highly profitable and can be a great source of passive income for people with little or no skill. But most especially, for people with little capital.
How to Create Low Content Books
- Find a niche/category
- Design a front and back cover
- Design the Interior page(s)
- Upload on Amazon KDP
Find a niche/category:
Deciding on a niche will inform the kind of book you will create. You want to shoot very specific bullets. Also, remember that the goal of every business is to make a profit; therefore, you want to pick a profitable niche.
Finding the right niche is the difference between making sales, getting noticed, or getting lost in the crowd. This will inform the kind of low content book you will create.
The rule of thumb is to find a popular niche/category. KDP categories and niches help buyers find your content. When deciding on a niche or category, here are a few things you need to be mindful of;
- Number of search results average best seller Ranks (BSR)
- Average reviews
- Average Prices
- Do other books use the same/similar keywords?
- Are there recently published books on page 1?
A high search result means a particular need is in high demand, whereas a low search result suggests the opposite. Here is a metric to help you.A good search result should range between 250 – 3,000.
BSR is the reward given to every product by Amazon, using current & historical sales. Note that the lower the BSR the higher the sales. A metric to help is;
- Bad BSR: Low than 250,000
- Ok range: 100,000-150,000
- Great Range; 50,000 – 100,000
Here are two important tips you want to remember if you want to make good sales.
- Create as many products as possible.
- Follow the trends. Trends could be specific seasons or celebrations. For example, you know that valentine’s is in February, hence there will be high demand for valentine’s or love appealing books. You might want to consider creating journals that lovers can present to their partners.
Design a Front and Back Cover:
Once you’ve decided on the kind of book to create, the next step is to design the front and back cover, and as I mentioned, you don’t have to be a professional graphic designer for that. Some websites can help you create professional designs with little stress.
When creating your cover, you want to keep your target audience at heart. For example, if you want to create a book for children, you want to use designs that appeal to children. I promised to give you a list of graphic design platforms to help you do powerful designs. You will only need to familiarize yourself with their tools.They also have templates you can simply edit from. Here is a list of popular graphic design tools;
- Adobe Spark
Kindly note that Amazon is big on copyright and you might get banned if the Amazon system flags your content for copyright violation. So, when creating your covers, you want to use copyright-free images. Here is a list of websites to get copyright-free images from;
Design the Interior Page(s):
Like the front and back covers, you also don’t need to struggle with building your page designs from the scratch. There are websites to help you with templates. BookBolt is one such powerful website that can help you create great interior pages. It has a premium version which can give you access to astonishing design.
However, if you are just starting and don’t have money, you can use their free templates. There are hundreds of them to download from. Once you are done downloading your page, you upload it to your graphic design software and replicate it into the desired number of pages. After that, you download it in pdf.
Upload on Amazon KDP:
Once you have all your designs ready, the last thing step is to upload them to the Amazon KDP website. To do that, you will have to provide the following information.
- Book type (this needs to be Paperback, not Kindle eBook)
- Language (English)
- Book title + Subtitle
- Author (you can use a pen name if you’d like)
- Publishing rights (Amazon wants to know if you own the copyright and publishing rights for this book)
- Keywords (this is how people searching on Amazon will find your book in the search results, so don’t skip them!)
- ISBN (KDP will assign you a free ISBN)
- Publication Date
- Print Options: You need to choose your paper color & type, the size of the book, and some options for the finish
Selling low-content books on Amazon KDP seems to be an exciting means of making money, where you have to give nothing for something. But there is nothing farther from the truth. This is not a quick way to get rich. Yes, it’s easy, however, like every other legitimate business, it requires some level of dedication,creativity, and hard work to earn.
In fact, it is your creativity that will stand you out and get buyers to put their money into your coffers. There is no free money anywhere, and people will only give you their money if you can give them something they need, something they probably won’t find elsewhere. Therefore, hone your creative skills. Browse templates to borrow ideas from and in no time, you will be raking in your millions.
