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.

Designing an interior is not an easy task. A real author or designer spends a great deal of time coming out with the best interior that sells. We know that this is not for everybody. It takes time and patience to come out with a great book that meets the interest of a buyer. Fortunately, you can avoid the designing if it is not your thing, and either engage designers to create these interiors for you or go to platforms like creative fabrica and buy already designed interiors and covers. This is what those who see this as a business do. They outsource or buy premade interiors and upload them into the platform.

Amazon

Amazon 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 close to 386 billion U.S. dollars in 2020. Due to its global scope and reach, Amazon is 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-sell 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 Only. Earn up to 75% royalties 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. Fortunately, you can get premade book interiors for any niche on the creative fabrica platform.

You can buy these interiors at very low prices and then upload them if this is how you want to go about your business.  Sites like creative fabrica sell any type of interior for this business. All you need to do is to add your covers and upload them to the KDP platform. Whichever way, this is completely acceptable. This is how I go about my business. I buy the interiors for $2 and $3 dollars, engage people to design the cover, and I sell them for $9 – $16 per book.

The Freelance Revolution 🔥 – the trend of the gig guys

Freelance

The volatile nature of the world economy as a result of COVID and the massive job losses worldwide had pushed more companies into outsourcing parts of their activities. These shifts has seen a major hike in demand for freelancers. 

The typical 9 to 5 office job is gradually becoming a thing of the past and today’s new technologies are making it easier to work anywhere and at any time.

Freelance work has also seen a boom globally because of the spread of different communicational tools.

With the rise of the gig economy, more people are discussing freelancing as never before. There are more freelancers today than there have ever been in history – a 2019 study. More and more businesses are relying on freelancers to do their work because of the vast variety of options available in the market. The increase in outsourcing of businesses or jobs seems to be the new trend that 2020 and the new year had witnessed.

In fact, more and more people are seeing freelancing as a long-term career path for success, security and fulfillment.

Who is a freelancer

Freelancers are self-employed and are often referred to as independent contractors. They work anywhere and anytime without a supervisor on an agreed schedule and rate. Freelances are deemed as self-employed workers who provide service or services to clients. They are hired by companies on a part-time or short-term basis and do not receive the same compensation as full-time employees.

What is Freelancing

Freelancing means providing service or services as an independent company or individual rather than on a full-time basis or employment. Freelancing is a contract-based profession where instead of being recruited in an organization, the person uses his skills and experience to provide services to a number of clients without necessarily been there in person. It is an agreed relationship, where the individual uses his abilities and experience to offer types of assistance to various clients.

In brief, it could be described as using your skills, education, and experiences acquired to work with multiple clients and take on various assignments without committing to a single employer. In basic terms, freelancing is the point at which you utilize your abilities, schooling, and experience to work with numerous customers and take on different tasks without focusing on a single business or employment. The number of assignments or tasks that you can take just depends on your ability to deliver when needed.

Freelancing provides you a chance to do the work you love and earn some extra money through it. Being a freelancer is a great way to turn your passion into profitable profession. Freelancers do not hold permanent employment with a single organization and instead earn through temporary projects or contract work.

Best Platforms To Freelance

Freelancing platforms is the ideal place where you can fully utilize your skills and get paid for it. Whether you’re looking for additional ways to pay the bills, to fulfil your desires or just want the freedom that freelancing offers, you’ve come to the right place. With so many platforms available online, freelancing has become very easy nowadays. Even, there are millions of people who are choosing freelancing as a profession or full-time job. These freelancing platforms also help companies to hire the candidate required only for a specific project. They don’t need to hire a full-time employee on a salary basis and thus helps in cost optimization. In this article, we will discuss the top sites for freelancers based on our research and experience.

There are currently several freelance platforms available on the internet;

Toptal

Toptal is a marketplace for the top talent in the marketplace. They emphasize to employers that they allow them to hire the “top 3% of talent”.

So this site is for those with a lot of experience and working at the top streams of industry. If you pass Toptal’s screening process, you’ll be given access to excellent projects with great clients (including JPMorgan, Zendesk, Airbnb, etc.) as well as commensurate compensation (no contests for the lowest bidder). They emphasis projects for developers, designers, product managers, and project managers.  Freelancers typically earn a minimum of $60/hour. 

Upwork

Upwork is a marketplace for freelancers in fields like writing, graphic design and web development. The site helps professionals find projects, communicate with clients and get paid. Freelancers on Upwork create profiles outlining their skills and experiences, along with their job histories and portfolios. Clients post job listings detailing their projects and what they’re looking for in a freelancer. From there, freelancers submit proposals for projects they’re interested in doing. Clients can review freelancers’ proposals, profiles, and portfolios, choose the one that best fits their needs, and place project funding in escrow. Freelancers and clients then collaborate through an online work station, typically with no off-platform communication.

Overall, Upwork makes it easier to find jobs and make more money, but think carefully about which gigs you want to apply for. And check out our guide to managing money as a freelancer for advice on how to handle your newfound income, once it starts rolling in.

How to become a freelancer

For those who are not happy with the traditional way of been commanded on what to do and feel deep within them that this is not the best way of life for them. It is a decision that one does not want to be limited under one employer for the rest of one’s life. So, this desire compels people in this category to consider a shift to freelancing full time.

The freelance market is growing by the day, and if you want to be competitive, you have to prepare accordingly. Follow these seven steps to get started.

  • Is freelance for you?

In other to succeed with freelancing one must be disciplined. Being your own boss is a great thing if you’re disciplined and reliable. If you want to be a freelancer, you should maintain a daily work routine, be ready to juggle several projects at once, and continually look for new projects to maintain a steady flow of work.

  • look for the right or suitable platform for your field.

Most freelancers use freelancing platforms to find work. Choosing the platform with the model that fits your needs and salary expectations is incredibly important for your success. Plenty of freelancing websites encourage the so-called “race to the bottom,” where freelancers provide poor quality work in exchange for poor compensation.

  • Build Your profile

ake time to create a substantial profile that will inform potential clients about your education, skills, expertise and experience. You don’t have to write novels – keep it short and sweet. List your skills, experiences, special achievements and explain why you’re the best person for the job.

You don’t have to prepare a classical CV, as most freelancing websites have a predesigned template you need to fill out with your information

  • Build a portofolio

Take time to create a profile, make sure to provide a portfolio that illustrates your skills and experience.

If you’re a beginner in your chosen field, take time to create a portfolio with sample works, or simply accept several jobs at a discounted rate in exchange for experience.

  • Determine your rate and price

If you have some level of experience, of course, you cannot charge the same rate as freelancers with a decade of work under their belts. Your rate must cover your monthly expenses if you have steady work, no matter how experienced you are.

  • Scout for Job/Project

First, apply only for the jobs you are confident you can do. As a freelancer, you’re building your reputation from scratch, and especially in the beginning, it’s of utmost importance to secure positive feedback.

  • Build a relationship with the client

Relationships with your clients are the most important part of freelancing. By maintaining a good connection with your current clients and providing quality work, you’ll be more likely to secure more consistent jobs in the future. Make sure you meet every deadline, listen to instructions, make any necessary edits and communicate efficiently with your clients. While you aren’t tied down to set hours, you should still be available to your clients in case they have any questions, requests or concerns.

Conclusion

With the rise of the gig economy, more people are shifting into freelancing. It is therefore important that the various requirements and the platforms available be spread further for those who would take advantage of this in the future to succeed in the quest to become independent
