Steps By Steps To Creating A Pro Activity Book for KDP – Beginner to Advance

ABC TRACING BOOK

Activity books are one of the most popular and highly demanded types of books, for obvious reasons. They are the type of books, typically aimed at Kids with lots of interactive content. Examples are letter or number tracing, coloring, puzzles and quizzes activity books. These books help kids to develop their writing, reading and reasoning skills, whilst enjoying a fun activity. The learning of children dramatically improves as they perform most of these learning activities.

It’s my greatest joy to see people been successful publishing and making money on KDP to help people publish their books on Amazon

ALPHABET AND NUMBER TRACING WITH DOT LETTER DOT MARKER

The best way to stand out in the crowded coloring book niche is to design your own coloring books. But since speed and the number of books one has on the platform are the key determining factors to making money in this business, most bestsellers either outsource their book interior or buy already designed interiors known as premade interiors from professional sites like creative fabrica and only edit basic editing to suit their personal requirements. The rest is just to their book covers, for upload. This helps these guys to upload more books and by that make more money than the average guy who usually starts from the scratch of designing. But regardless, the great news is this, it is also possible to do this from scratch if you have all the time, and it is super easy to do this in PowerPoint – even if like me, you can’t draw.

In this blog, I will show you

  • How to design Aphabet Tracing book in PowerPoint
  • Where to Find Images for Your Book
  • How to Turn images into png/jpg for use
  • How to Work with Vector Images in PowerPoint
  • How to Fill Shapes and Letters with Patterns for Coloring Books
  • If there is more time on hand we shall discuss KDP book covers

DESIGNING IN POWERPOINT

Do the first thing first.

1. Set up the dimensions of your book interior. Head to KDP and pick the right book size. The common book sizes are the 8.5 x 11 and the 6 x 9 sizes. For purposes of this tutorial, we will be using a standardized of 8.5 x 11, in inches.

Open your powerpoint and set up the right book dimensions like you see below;

DIMENSIONS

2. Set the right margins for KDP purposes

KDP BOOK MARGINS

Since most of the books that are sold range in the pages of 0 – 300, we will be using a margin either 0.400.50. For me I have set my template to a margin of .50 and this works fine without any problem at all.

Lets see how to achieve this in powerpoint;

First use the rectangular element to set up your margins. This is how it is, then set the right margins.

Rectangular element
Margin Element set right at h.4 w.4

Our book interior is now ready and set at a margin of 0.4 width and .04 height. We are good to go

Its been excellent training so far.

Creating your first Giant Tracing Letter

Follow the steps and illustrations below to create your first big tracing letter.

You can either use table within powerpoint to create the template needed to write your first letter. Lets assume we want the child to trace the first letter A.

Lets begin by inserting a table of the 1:2 or one column two rows. This will appear like what you see below;

after inserting the 1×2 table

TRACING FONTS

Go to google and search for tracing fonts like this

Install the right one from font space

I have several tracing fonts already installed on my machine. I will pick one and use it for the purposes of this example.

KDP MUST KNOW

INTRODUCTION

Making money online has always been the desire of every digital marketer. Regardless of the amount earned, it makes you feel great. You after begin to scale up, looking for more lucrative and reliable ways to earn even more.  Unfortunately, this great desire does not get materialized for everyone because most people do not follow the right guide or are scammed along the way, and therefore give up.

 “KDP” stands for “Kindle Direct Publishing”, and it’s Amazon’s self-publishing platform, where you can create either a high content book, like an e-book for Kindle or paperback books AND upload them on the platform for free.

Amazon KDP is now the biggest, most reliable platform to earn money on the internet. In my opinion, and from the perspective of several other people, publishing low-content books on the KDP platform is the best way to make some good money online. This is, by far, the most legit, underutilized, long term and profitable way to make money on the internet. It is indeed one of the most reliable and easiest ways to make some good cash online.

All you have to do is to join the platform and upload your books and see the money coming in. In fact, making money by publishing books is one of the best ways to live your passive income dream. This is a great opportunity to be making money even whilst you are asleep or on holiday.

You can either create, outsource or buy the interiors and covers for this business. I will show you how to create at least one of these interiors. You can also engage people on fiverr to work on your project for you, you can also buy already designed interiors, which are known as premade interiors from sites like creative fabrica at a very low price. All that is required is for you to upload these books using your own created account. This is perfectly acceptable. There is no crime nor sin here. You do not have to be a graphic designer or writer, nor have any related prior experience, to start this lifetime business opportunity.

Don’t ever forget that Amazon is the largest e-commerce store on the planet, controlling more than 85% of the e-book market and 65% of the print book business. The simple explanation for this is that millions of customers shop on Amazon every day globally. You are therefore certain of making sales on this platform if you get things right from the start.

On the KDP platform, you upload your books to Amazon for free, sell them on their marketplace, and collect royalty from the sales. Amazon Kindle publishing platform allows you to publish your books, and you don’t need to pay for anything. No need to print the books, and you don’t have to market it, to third parties. Amazon does this on your behalf. The exciting thing is that this store is yours forever.

How To Write & Optimize Your KDP Title and Subtitle To Rank On Amazon

Writing headlines is a specialty – there are outstanding writers who will tell you they couldn’t write a headline to save their lives.

Bill F. Walsh

INTRODUCTION

As a name defines a person, so is a title. A well-described product reduces, the ambiguity about the product and the higher its chances of getting customer impressions and sales. No one would want to buy a product that lacks clarity. A product that would sell is something that has been described. The title is a story’s first impression. It creates expectation and sometimes, perhaps, disinterest. Often the title is what will determine whether someone pauses to read further about your book or just move on scrolling. Give your products an advantage compared to competitors by writing engaging titles. As much as possible, let your titles be NATURAL.

The title is the main way by which customers may find your product on the Amazon platform.

Ensure your book titles on KDP contain at least one keyword, and that keyword must relate to your product niche. Also make use of some long-tail keywords, because keywords are the means by which customers make their searches on KDP.

Long Tail Keywords

These are longer and more specific keyword phrases that visitors are more likely to use when they’re closer to a point-of-purchase.

Take this example: a notebook that sells classic furniture, the chances are that your product might never appear on the first second and even the third page via normal organic search for “notebook” because there’s too much competition. Using longer tail keywords, is the same as niching down. You can add something like “notebook for work” or “notebook for kids”. This will ensure that your product gets in front of those, who are searching for these specific books.

Book Title

STEP BY STEPS TO CREATING LOW CONTENT BOOKS IN POWERPOINT

The title field should only contain the actual title of your book as it appears on your book cover or the spine. What you input here will show as your book’s title on your product page. Customers pay special attention to errors in titles. They may question your book’s authenticity if the title doesn’t match the Amazon detail page and the cover of your book.

Optimize Your Title To Rank

Make sure your title is brief and descriptive. Go straight to what your book is about. Be snappy but informative. Keep the title short and simple yet ensure it encapsulates relevant keywords.

Don’t engage in keyword bunching, instead, use the right keywords to compose your title. Using the right keyword for your product title will give you better opportunities to rank and connect with those who are looking for your product. You can easily get the right keywords on the Amazon search bar.


Some Title do’s and don’ts

Write your title name exactly as it reads on the cover of your book. Nothing more, nothing less.

Ensure your title is exactly the same for both your paperback, hardcover, and eBook versions. This is how they are linked together on one detail page.

Don’t add anything from the following list of prohibited items in the title field:

  • Unauthorized reference to other titles or authors
  • Unauthorized reference to a trademarked term
  • Reference to sales rank (e.g., “bestselling”)
  • Reference to advertisements or promotions (e.g., “free”)
  • Only Punctuation (e.g. “!!!!!!!!”)
  • Using only “unknown”, “n/a”, “na”, “blank”, “none”, “null”, “not applicable”
  • Repeating generic keywords like “notebook” , “journal” , “gifts” , “books”,etc.

Subtitles

A subtitle is an optional secondary title that contains additional and more information about the content of your book. This additional information should help you differentiate your product from other products. Detail the exact details of what your product has to offer. The attributes of your product; Variant/Color/Flavor/Material

Provide more information about your book here. Don’t forget to use keywords here, but do not over stuff. Together, your title and subtitle must be 200 characters or fewer. Your subtitle should adhere to the same guidelines as your title above.

What is an example subtitle? Mary Shelley gave her most famous novel the title “Frankenstein”; with the subtitle “The Modern Prometheus”. Her book can be called and is recognizable by both names. By using the subtitle “The Modern Prometheus”, she references the Greek Titan as a hint of the novel’s themes.

Note: If using a subtitle, a colon will be automatically added between the title and subtitle on the Amazon detail page.

CONCLUSION

Your book, could only rank and be placed in front of potential customers and start selling when the right thing is done.

99% OF KDP BESTSELLERS ADOPT THIS NICHE RESEARCH STRATEGY

Commit to a niche, try not to be everything to everyone.

Davis

INTRODUCTION

INTRODUCTION

KDP niche research is what differentiates bestsellers from ordinary sand zero sellers. Most of the time, those who complain that KDP is over-saturated are those who fail to carry out niche research prior to creating and hosting their product on the Amazon platform.

My sole aim is to show you how I carry my niching down from start to finish. My interest is to show everything I know about the subject, in a very simple yet effective way to get profitable and low competitive niches. This will help you make money in this profitable but competitive industry.

Niche research is the only solution to the over-saturation. How do you niche down to get products in demand yet with very low competition?

One error that experienced and bestsellers stay clear of is trying to create their own niches out of nowhere. Avoid this grave mistake! Do not generate your own niche out of a vacuum, just because you have an interest or intuition that people will like that niche. No! The fact that you have a particular interest does not mean that the market out there would also love the same niche product. In most of these instances, these niches are not necessarily new markets. Don’t forget that our ultimate aim for niche research is to find a niche that is already profitable and highly in demand. Don’t create a book on a niche because it’s something YOU love, and you feel there might be demand for it. No! No! No! Look for what is being sought after in the MARKET yet with low competition. Find a niche that is ALREADY profitable. This cannot be understated.

How do you niche down to get the most sought-after product?

Look around, just conduct a simple googling to know existing products. You can install these Google Chrome extensions to help you achieve this. Install Keyword everywhere on Chrome. This will help you know most existing products on the market and what people are working on with regard to a particular niche. What are people selling? Go to platforms like Pinterest, creative fabrica, etsy, and Amazon itself. Analyze the various data and find out the skill for some of the results that are coming in. Can you do a better job with regard to the cover and interiors of those results? Before you go further, make sure to have the following tools and add-on extensions installed on Chrome.

HOW TO MAKE MONEY SELLING LOW CONTENT BOOKS

Install any or all of the following extensions and programs running on your browser. They are not in any particular order ;

  • AMZ suggestion expander
  • DS Amazon Quickview
  • Self Publishing Titans
  • Keyword everywhere
  • Keyword tool (keyword.io)
  • Amazon-asin.com

Stop wasting time testing random niches when you can have the hottest selling ones right at your fingertips. In this game, those with the most knowledge win. These niches have been carefully selected based on actual selling journals and sales data.

Niche Research and Keywords

These two concepts must be understood in others to grasp the idea of niching down. KDP niche is a market whilst keywords are just the topics. Take a look at the following 3 examples;

Niche research is a vital process without which you may struggle to make the needed sales on KDP

From this table, we can see that the niche is the broader area and the keywords are the specific topics within the niche. A niche can be said to be the subject and keyword as the topic.

Things to always remember

  • Amazon Search Results  Amazon search results are 2500 at max for each KDP niche (most are below 2000)
  • Average Best Seller Ranks – These niches have an average bestseller rank of below 200k. The BSR indicates the level of demand for a product. The lower the BSR, the better, and vice versa.
  • Keyword Niche Score – Each niche has a keyword niche score of approximately 50.0 or greater
  • Google Search Volume (Optional) – Most of these niches do have a monthly search value in google as well

One may also use Google keyword planner to look for books in demand or use normal google for this initial research.

To make money with KDP, do not

  • Choose niches that are too saturated
  • Choose NICHES OR KEYWORDS that are too competitive
  • Design unique and covers that speak to their niches

PRACTICAL NICHE RESEARCH – KDP

Go to Amazon

See below; the cryptocurrency in the Amazon search bar is the market and the various topics are the niches or the keywords.

BSR (BESTSELLER RANKS)

BESTSELLER RANK

Always target a low competitive niche, a competition of less than 10,000 is great, as that is less competitive. From there we target a bestseller rank of less < than #2000,000. The very low the BSR the better, meaning there is high demand for such a product. Continue in this process of niching down till you find products with the lowest BSR and the lowest competition.

This is the whole process of the KDP niche research.
