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 addon 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.

HOW TO CREATE AMAZON KDP BOOK COVERS THAT SELLS – FREE AND EASY

“To get rich, you have to be making money while you’re asleep” –

David Bailey

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 even make more money.  Unfortunately, this great desire does not get materialized for everyone because most people do not follow the right guide and therefore become frustrated and 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. Amazon KDP is now the biggest and 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 whilst you are asleep or on holiday.

There are two sides to every book, the interior, or what is traditionally termed the content of the book, and the book cover, or the exterior part of the book.

You can either create, outsource or buy any of these components on the internet and upload them onto the KDP platform, perfectly accepted. You can also outsource these components to whomever you think has the skill and the expertise to work on it for you, this is also well accepted. You can also buy this premade interiors, and the covers on the internet, from places like creative fabrica. This is the favorite of most top sellers.

In this article, I will walk you through and show you in a step-by-step manner how you can create your own book cover from start to finish with visual images.

After that, all that is required is for you to upload these books using your own created account. This is perfectly acceptable. There is no crime or 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.

How to make money creating KDP AND PRINTABLES for Money

KNOW THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THIS

“Content builds relationships. Relationships are built on trust. Trust drives revenue.”

Andrew Davis

No Content Books & Low Content Books

No content books are books with little to NO content. You must be surprised. How on earth can someone make money selling books with zero content. Yes, the truth is that many people are selling these kinds of books on Amazon for money. The interiors of these books, as said earlier, are blank, have absolutely nothing in them, or with minimal content only.

Examples

  • Notebooks
  • Blank Journal
  • Blank Books
  • Sketch books
  • Primary story journals
  • Blank comic books
  • Handwriting books
  • Handwriting Books
  • Graph paper
  • Log books

Low Content Books

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

Start this business with the understanding, that this is a real business and never a quick money scheme. You can earn on this platform for the rest of your entire life.

ALL ABOUT KDP BOOK OVER

Go to KDP cover templates and download the right trim size of the book you want to create the cover for. Save this at a place on your PC where you can quickly get it.

To design any book cover, you must know these (3) things;

  • The trim size
  • The page count
  • Color

Remember that your file type must be a single PDF file. This cover must include the back cover, spine, and front cover as one image. The total size of this book cover must not be larger than 650 MB. KDP recommends a file size of 40MB or less because large files can slow down printing.

KDP TRIM SIZES

 

Setting your cover size

Your cover needs to be sized with bleed in order to meet KDP quality standards. Bleed is a printing term that refers to when printed items on a page, such as images or backgrounds, reach all the way to the edge of the page. To size your cover file with bleed, add 0.125″ (3.2 mm) to the top, bottom, and outside edges of your cover. Always remember that the page count must be an even number, e.g 100, 110, 112, 120, 124 etc


The KDP templates make it easier to create a print-ready paperback cover with programs that can open a PNG or PDF file and save a PDF file. As said earlier go to cover calculator and template generator and then enter your ink and paper choices, trim size, and page count, the calculator will generate a layout like this:

KDP BOOK CALCULATOR


Full cover. Total width and height of the cover file, including front, back, spine, and wrap.

  1. Front cover. Width and height of the visible cover area after it’s printed. It’s the same for the back cover too.
  2. Safe area. Place all text and images within this area, so they don’t shift to the front or back cover during printing.
  3. Bleed. Setting your bleed properly ensures printed objects reach all the way to the edge of the page. Accounting for bleed is important because it prevents a white border from appearing at the edge of the page when the book is trimmed.
  4. Margin. Don’t place text or images in this area, unless they’re intended to wrap to the inside cover.
  5. Spine. The outside edge of the book is where the pages are gathered and bound. Your book must have a minimum page count of 79 pages to include text on the spine.
  6. Spine safe area. Place all spine text and images within this area, so they don’t shift to the front or back cover during printing.
  7. Spine margin. Don’t place text or images in this spine area because they could shift to the front or back cover during printing.
  8. Barcode margin. This area ensures that the barcode doesn’t shift during printing and scans properly.


Note: For Right to Left content, the cover calculator and template generator will generate a layout with the front cover placed to the left of the spine and the back cover to the right of the spine. The barcode will be placed at the lower left-hand corner of your book’s back cover.

KDP TEMPLATES

USING BOOKOW

You can also go to Bookow and use their KDP calculator to calculate spine width and the total width and height of the print cover for KDP.

BOOKOW BOOK CALCULATOR – PAGE122

Note: The full width and height calculated here include the spine and bleed. Your cover PDF must be the exact size as given by this calculator, and your background colour and/or images must go all the way to the edges.

MANUAL CALCULATION


To format your paperback cover, you’ll first need to calculate the spine measurements. The bleed is always 0.125 on all sides. The spine size is always provided and depends on the trim size.

Insert requirements into the following equations to find your cover size: See below


Cover Width = Bleed + Back Cover Width + Spine Width + Front Cover Width + Bleed

Cover Height = Bleed + Trim Height + Bleed

MANUAL CALCULATION OF KDP BOOK COVER

Formatting your cover background


  • Bleed. All covers have bleed. If you want to add a background (e.g. color or image), make sure it extends 0.125″ (3.2 mm) beyond the final trim line on all outside edges. All books are trimmed to size, and to ensure that the background fills the page, it needs to extend 0.125″ (3.2 mm) past where the book will be trimmed on the top, bottom, and outside edges. This will prevent a white border from appearing at the edge when your book is trimmed.
  • Illegible text. When choosing a background, consider how much it contrasts with the text. If the colors are too similar, the text might blend into the background and be hard to read.
  • Borders. We don’t recommend borders because we must allow for a 0.125″ (3.2 mm) production variance that may trim the border or cause it to appear uneven. If your file includes borders, they should cover at least 0.25″ (6.4 mm) inside the trim line. If you include a white border, it must meet our minimum border width or we may reject your file.

Don’t ever forget, Amazon is the largest e-commerce store on the face of the planet, controlling more than 85% of the eBook 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.

STEP BY STEP TO DESIGNING KDP BOOK COVERS

As said earlier, you can get your KDP interiors from creative fabrica and just prepare your book cover and upload it to KDP. This is the whole concept of Amazon KDP. Let’s begin our design;

There are several ways to follow in designing KDP books. For the purposes of this article, I will show you how to use canva to design your book cover.

✨Top Profitable KDP Niches and Free Interiors to upload in 2022

KDP Niches

Introduction

Today, I share free top profitable KDP niches and their respective free interiors to help you to make sales on Amazon KDP. These niches have been profitable from the beginning of the year up to this time and have been forecasted to generate consistent sales right through to the end of 2022. You can publish books in these niches and generate huge incomes in the shortest possible time.

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.

The following criteria were applied in coming out with these profitable niches

  1. Amazon Search Results  Amazon search results are 2500 at max for each KDP niche (most are below 2000)
  2. 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.
  3. Keyword Niche Score – Each niche has a keyword niche score of approximately 50.0 or greater
  4. Google Search Volume (Optional) – Most of these niches do have a monthly search value in google as well

To make money with KDP, do not

  • Choose niches that are too saturated

  • Design unique and covers that speak to their niches
SECRETS TO CREATING LOW CONTENT BOOKS IN POWERPOINT

1. Homeschooling Planner

Most parents are now opting for the option of either assisting or homeschooling the children, and these numbers are growing by the day. With this rising number of people homeschooling comes more demand for these planners and higher numbers of sales through KDP for low content books in this niche.

There are a lot of niches in this category, but you can niche further to find the best ones. Get to know what parents and students are looking for.

These can include

  • Lesson planners
  • Homeschool planners for parents
  • Homework & assignment trackers
  • Homeschool planners for Kids
  • Undated organizers for distance learning homeschool parents
  • attendance trackers and how many hours per day the student is learning.

Keywords to look into:
• Homeschool planner 2021-2022
• Homeschool planner for one student
• Homeschool planner for multiple kids

You can download the following INTERIORS, design your covers and upload to KDP

2. Visitor Guest Book

Have you ever been to an Airbnb where there was a visitor guest book to sign? These type of businesses are popping up all over the place and almost all of them have this type of book laying on the counter when you walk in.

The interiors usually include the names of the guests, when they visited, where they came from, why they were on a vacation, and highlights from their trips and where they recommend future visitors go and check out.

Make the cover large and readable. You can also buy interiors at a small price at creative fabrica and upload

You can niche down to any of the following (a guest book for a cabin, a guest book for a place in a big city, etc).

Keywords to look into:
Visitor guest book
Sign in log book
• Visitor log book for business

Airbnb Guest Book

3. Wedding Guest Book

Wedding Planners/Budgeting Books Weddings are extremely expensive (but they don’t have to be)! Lots of people are paying close attention to their budget and with that comes a lot of planning work.

To break into this niche, the right interior, is what will be the game changer.

Get interiors from sites like creative fabrica at a small cost but professionally done. Design your cover if possible and upload. The more comprehensive you can get, the better your book will do.

Keywords to look into:

Wedding planner checklist book
• Sarcastic wedding planner
• Wedding budget book
• Wedding on a budget planner

4. Alphabet Tracing & Coloring Books

Coloring Books are probably the most complicated type of “low content” book you can make, but these are a clear winner when it comes to sales.

To be successful with this niche, you need to niche down and look into running AMS ads if you are going into a larger niche with more than 1,000 results on Amazon. Since these books take longer to prepare, you must be good at designing to succeed in this niche. I will recommend you buy interiors for these types of books to make it in this wonderful niche. You can equally get lots of coloring books here

Remember, these types of books are outlines of images where the customer will drag inside of them. Because of this, make the books a larger size than 6X9!

Keywords to look into:
• Sloth coloring book for kids
• Whale coloring book for adults
• Rainforest coloring book

Birthday Books Address Books

Remembering someone’s birthday and their addresses could be a challenge, if not impossible. This is why combining all of your contacts into a book is a great idea (and they sell well too!).

To break into this niche, pay special attention to your interior. Break it up by a page for name/address/email/different phone numbers and then calendar pages so that they never miss a birthday/anniversary. Keywords to look into:

Address book for seniors
• Birthday reminder notebook
• Blank contact book Job/Coworker Books.
• Coworker gag gift book

Conclusion

It’s my firm belief, that getting the right niche and the right interiors including a good cover is the key for success in the KDP game and any print on-demand business.

I wish you well in this exciting business
