Introduction

A wise person should have money in their head, but not in their heart.

–Jonathan Swift

Earning the first dollar online is the dream of most people. Unfortunately, this great dream does not get materialized for most people. Either because most people do not follow the right way or are scammed, and therefore they give up along the way. What are the best, legit, and sustainable ways to earn money online? In my opinion, and from the perspective of several people, publishing low content books on the KDP system is by far, the best way to make money online. It is indeed one of the most reliable and easiest ways to make some good cash online.

You can make money by selling No and Low content books on Amazon, the world’s number one e-commerce store.

Amazon is the biggest e-commerce platform in the world. You can be smart by leveraging their market size relative to other e-commerce platforms to build wealth online, regardless of where you live on the face of the planet.

You can join Amazon KDP for free and start publishing low content books with no money involved. I call this a business without RISK.

What is KDP?

“KDP” stands for “Kindle Direct Publishing”, and it’s Amazon’s self-publishing platform, where you can create either an e-book for Kindle or paperback books. You may ask, what is a paperback? A paperback is a book with a thin, flexible cover. They are cheap and portable. Paperback simply means that – the cover is made up of flexible hard or thick paper. They are great to read while on the move.

On the KDP platform, you can upload your book to Amazon for free, sell it on their marketplace, and collect royalty from the sales. Amazon Kindle publishing platform allows you to publish your book, and you don’t need to pay for anything, and you don’t need to print your book, and you don’t have to market it to third parties. Amazon does this on your behalf.

What are No and Low Content Books?

No content books are books with little to NO content. You must be surprised how on earth someone could make money by selling books with zero content. Yes, a lot of people are selling these kinds of books on Amazon for money. The interiors of these books, as said earlier, are blank, or have absolutely nothing in them, or with minimal content only. Examples of these books are:

  • Notebooks
  • Blank journals
  • Sketchbooks
  • Primary story journals
  • Blank comic books
  • Handwriting books
  • Graph paper
  • Logbooks

Low Content Books

Daily Planner

Recipe Journal

Low-content books on the other hand are paperback books that contain little to no text or images but are designed to provide the reader or user with guided content. Examples are:

  • Quote books
  • Coloring books
  • Guest books
  • Planners
  • Recipe books
  • Password books
  • Address books
  • Inspirational quotes
  • Daily planners etc

The best part is that you can make a full-time business out of publishing these books on Amazon.

KDP is a major source of passive income.

Designing an interior is not an easy task. A real author spends a great deal of time coming out with the best interior that sells. We know that this is not for everybody. It takes real time and patience to come out with a great book.

Amazon

Amazon.com is an international e-commerce company that offers online retail, computing services, consumer electronics, digital content, and other local services such as daily deals and groceries. Amazon is the leading e-retailer in the United States, with net sales amounting to close to 386 billion U.S. dollars in 2020. Due to its global scope and reach, Amazon is considered one of the most valuable brands worldwide.

A Profitable Hub for Third-Party Sellers

Amazon serves as a global platform for first- and third-party sellers (3P). The former are vendors that sell goods directly to Amazon, who later re-sells them to final customers. The latter are independent sellers using Amazon as an e-commerce site to offer their products. Third-party sellers control pricing and product listing, a strategy that proved highly successful for small and medium enterprises in the United States. 3P sales account for roughly 60 percent of total paid units on Amazon’s marketplace, and around the same share of 3P orders are completed via Amazon’s fulfillment services.

How to Start Publishing No And Low Content Books On Amazon For Money

Work with the understanding that this is a real business. I know people who earn over $10,000 in royalties every month publishing low content stuff. Earn up to 70% royalty on sales to customers in the US, Canada, UK, Germany, India, France, Italy, Spain, Japan, Brazil, Mexico, Australia, and more.

For those who may have difficulty starting, do not worry.

You need two things when it comes to making the books ready for publishing on the platform. One is the interior of the books, and the second is the cover of the books. These are uploaded separately on the platform.

You need very simple tools to start designing the interiors. You need skills in any of the following applications:

  • Google Slides
  • PowerPoint
  • Canva
  • GIMP
  • Photoshop
  • Photopia

But note, there is a much easier way to get these interiors. Both the interiors and the covers are sold on markets. You can buy at very low prices and then upload if this is how you want to go about this lucrative business.  Sites like Creative Fabrica sell any type of interior for this business, and you can check out their KDP interiors here. All you need to do is add your covers and upload them to the KDP platform. Whichever way, this is acceptable. This is how I go about my business. I buy the interiors between $2 and $3 dollars, engage people to design the cover, and I sell them between $9 – $16 per book.
