Curious about self-publishing low content paperback books with Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP)? You probably see a lot of potential in this business. But what exactly are low content books and how do you get started?
It’s easier than you might be thinking.
Publishing via KDP is simple, lucrative, and you only need a few things to get started – an Amazon account, document creation software like PowerPoint or Word, basic document creation skills (if you can type a sentence, you can do this!), an understanding of niche/keyword research OR a willingness to learn…
…and patience. 🙂
What is Low Content Publishing?
Low content publishing is a method of publishing paperback books that have little – even no – content.
These types of books include:
|Activity Books||Memory Books|
|Composition Books||Prayer Books|
|Guest Books/Registers||Study Guides|
✅ Think about it – all of these books feature very little content.
Some have no content at all!
And they can all be easily self-published on Amazon. It only takes a few minutes to enter some details, review a preview of your book, and submit.
Once your book is accepted, it’s live in the Amazon marketplace.
Simple as that!
What is the BEST Software to Use to Create Low-Content Books?
It is unbelievably easy to create low-content books when you have the right skills and the right tools.
I use PowerPoint and it’s THIS easy.
You can also use Word to create your interiors and a photo editing software to create your covers. But doing it this way is a little more labor intensive.
When you create low-content books with PowerPoint, you can do it all – interiors, covers…and it’s very fast. So you can create, upload, publish, and repeat.
How Do I Know What Types of Books to Create?
The first step to creating low-content books that sell is to be a consumer. Take a trip to Target, Walmart, or Barnes and Noble and window shop their books.
What kind of books are you drawn to?
How many different types of low-content books do you see?
I’ll tell you: my best-selling books are in a niche of which I am an active consumer. I know it inside and out and that knowledge helps me create to the market.
Niche selection is a bit of an art form but step-by-step, you can master it. And doing so is the secret to creating books that SELL.
The other part of niche selection is research.
I use several tools to help me research niches and keywords on Amazon but this one is my favorite, so far.
If you’ve gotten this far, you’re off to a great start! Publishing low content books is a LOT of fun and once you’ve gotten the hang of it, you can publish hundreds, if not thousands, and start seeing income pretty quickly.
