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

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;
2. Set the right margins for KDP purposes
Since most of the books that are sold range in the pages of 0 – 300, we will be using a margin either 0.40 –0.50. 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.
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;
Go to google and search for tracing fonts like this
I have several tracing fonts already installed on my machine. I will pick one and use it for the purposes of this example.
We shall continue in the next article. We will try and create ABC tracing and coloring, and also try and great giant ABCD coloring book

There are several ways for anyone to monetize his / her skills and start making money online. One such sure way is by selling digital products online. It is a fulfilling and lucrative business, with zero overhead cost and easily scalable.
We live in an era where you can be on your couch and do your business. All you have to do is trade your passion or skills for money. In digital marketing, it is called monetization..
Earning money online is the desire of anyone who has monetized his or her interest. I emphasized, earning money online is never an easy task. It is one of the most difficult tasks, contrary to the views of most people. You earn good cash online only when people see you as an authority or an expert in a particular subject or topic. This is when you begin to pull in lots of leads into a webpage.
So don’t sell anything, sell things you have authority to sell, and do this with passion.
Entrepreneurship in the internet world is a major work. Anyone who wants to be successful online must recognize that online work is synonymous to the other works out there. Without commitment, dedication and consistency, there is no way to show any success.
The first key to success online is to find a good niche. We recommend you leverage on your interests and passion. After all, there is no need to write on a topic you have little interest in. So, look for what you are good at, or what interests you. Identify and focus on the specific topics, and create your plan in an e-book or video format, as appropriate for the chosen area.
What Is Digital A product?
Before we answer the question of what a digital product is, let me explain to readers what a product is. A product, is anything that has or generates value. You provide value, by solving a problem that’s worth solving. You can also provide benefits that people would not want to miss once they’ve experienced it. With the increase in e-commerce activities, there are now more products sold online than ever before. A digital product is any product you sell online that doesn’t have physical form or substance. It involves electronic devices. These products are usually sold online. It is a conscious effort to monetize your time, talents, knowledge, ideas, effort and passion. Instead of sharing free stuff online, why not make money along these activities? The turning of these abilities into something that provides value is a digital product. Or the monetization of your online abilities. They are intangible products that you can create in the form of writing, audio, or video, and sold in a downloadable form. Digital products could only be accessible via electronic devices, like your smartphones, tablets, PC’s, laptops. They are intangible and don’t have any physical forms, but exist in digital format only. Most digital products also have a physical form. For instance, many people buy e-books in PDF format, then print them on their computers. The product becomes physical, but it started out in digital format.
Reasons for creating a digital product
The following are some reasons for selling digital products;
To solve and provide a solution for your audience and to create a bigger impact in the world by reaching more people. To get up every day and enjoy the process of what you are creating.
There is no limit to the quantity of products, nor are the products perishability and stock run-outs. There is no need to worry about holding inventory, packaging nor the shipment. These are issues with physical products, not digital products.
There is no limit on the quantity of products that one can sell. You can sell whatever quantity anyone orders.
Digital products are easy to distribute, significantly more sustainable, can be replicated infinitely. They are also not too difficult to create.
There is almost zero barrier cost to entry, except the value you are providing
The following are examples of creative digital products to monetize logos, templates, brand boards, mock-ups, stock photos, graphics, fonts, website themes, and e-books.
In general, the purpose of building a digital product is to solve a problem for your users, while achieving some goal for yourself. Regardless of whatever you might be selling, the key is to always provide value.
Some common digital products
· Book Publishing – low and high content books
· Audio & music
Design & Arts
Graphic designers and artist are the most sought after skills in this digital era. These graphic artist are constantly in demand. One of the most digitized industry presently is the graphic artist and design industry.
Take Creative Fabricafor an example. They have several millions of graphic on sales. These have been designed by graphic designers who get paid for whatever designs they put on the platform. With this platform you can get millions of KDP Low Content Interiors, Fonts, SVG’s, Crafts, Clipart, Gnomes and more for sale and as freebies
Courses And Ebooks
Another lucrative digital product to sell are courses or educational materials. This is where someone writes about whatever he/she knows in a book and sells.
If you are fortunate to be writing a blog, or you have blogs already written in the past, then it is to your advantage. Combine 3 – 4 of these articles or blogs relating to the same topic into chapters in a word format. After you are done, you can finally convert them into a PDF file. You can do all this with Google Docs or PDF convertors.
Others also Sync all their blog articles into book and sell. In this fast-paced world where education is never a barrier nor a requirement for knowledge. There are people who have learned more from the minds of other people through courses than they did in their years in the classrooms.
Tools for Ebook Creation & Sales
Platforms to Sell Your Digital Skills
You can sell whatever digital product on any of the following sites
Amazon KDP is a big platform which has provided self publishers the opportunity to publish and sell their books for free. You can make money by selling No and Low contentbooks on Amazon, the world’s number one e-commerce store.
You can be smart by leveraging on Amazon market-size to build wealth online, regardless of where you live on the face of the planet. The record must be set straight. It is not every book on KDP that sells. I know of people with several hundreds of books who barely make a sale. The opposite is also true. There are others with a few books, say under 50, who are making huge sales every day.
Making sales on Amazon KDP is dependent on the following factors. The quality of the cover, the interior, number of books and keywords you target. These factors when adhered to with the right keywords are the secret code to success in this lucrative business.
Today, my focus is to help direct anyone who is into KDP low content publishing to platforms where they can download or buy “ready to upload” or premade interiors to enhance their work. This is the strategy the bestsellers adopt. Most bestsellers do not have the luxury of time and do not want to spend several hours designing interiors when they could get them between $1 or $10 dollars. What these people do is, they buy premade interiors and customize them to suit their particular need. They trade their money for high quality interiors or engage freelancers to design interiors for their projects. Engaging the services of freelancers, may be a little expensive. For these people, uploading quality books is the key to success in this competitive business.
With this strategy, they are able, to upload more books than the average guy who has to go through the process of designing from scratch, up to the point of uploading onto the platform.
PLATFORMS THAT HOST AND SELL PREMADE KDP INTERIORS
The following platforms host thousands, if not millions, of already designed interiors. There are interiors for any niche you can think of.
This platform is the biggest of the four, hosting several millions of designs at very low cost. Interiors on creative fabrica are designed by top graphic designers around the world. All interiors go through, a stringent vetting process to ensure designs meet the company standards and also KDP quality standards. Before they are accepted to be displayed in a particular shop. You can buy these interiors as, a single item or sign-up to a subscription package. The subscription package gives access to every design on their platform. This is the package that most bestsellers opt for.
Etsy is another great platform to buy already designed interiors. With several interiors covering most niches. The only difference here is that Etsy is a little more expensive than the first one
Another wonderful place to get premade interior is on Gumroad. An excellent platform for individual creators. The difference between the first two and Gumroad is that on Gumroad, individuals host and sell their designs and there is nothing like vetting the product of an individual creator. Product prices may be less expensive compared to the others, quality of products may also match up to the others.
REASONS WHY BESTSELLERS USE PREMADE INTERIORS
The biggest reason is that you save time and this may help you to upload more books.
SAVE TIME ON LEARNING NEW APPLICATIONS FOR DESIGNING INTERIORS
This is a serious business, it’s not the time to be learning about bleed and no bleed and about margin and the other basic stuff. By the time you get on top of the game, the bestsellers would have uploaded thousands of quality books and occupying the first pages of their niches, living you behind. The moment you understand that this is a real business and start approaching it as such, your sales will begin to see improvement, and you will start making substantial money from Amazon.
SAVE TIME ON CREATING YOUR BOOK INTERIOR
Designing your interiors is more than just learning the technical details of creating a line or inserting an image. You also need to learn how to :
Create the book content such as writing prompts, tracking tables, and sketch boxes
Decide which font and font pairs to use.
Figure out how you’ll present the content
Layout the pages, so they look good and are displayed in a logical order
Make sure everything is formatted correctly to meet KDP’s manuscript specifications.
Using a premade interior saves you time from doing the above tasks
Most of these premade interiors are editable, and most of these platforms provide buyers with the source files to enable clients to edit and customize them. Depending on the designer, you may either get a PowerPoint file, an InDesign file, or both.
In theory, this should make it easy for you to customize or edit the interior by changing the fonts, text, adding new sections, and deleting existing ones.
I find it’s easier to edit my interiors in PowerPoint. But regardless of whether you directly edit the source file or recreate all or parts of the interior on your own, or even decides to upload them in the state they are, your sales may still go up because of the quality of those interiors. My favourite method is to edit the fonts or the writing prompts. I like to add extra value and extra keywords to the original premade interior.

Black Friday is the biggest shopping and money making day of the year. In the US, Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving, and this day ushers in the start of Christmas shopping. It is a day packed with festive shoppers and bargain hunters searching for the best and greatest deals wherever available.
It is a day when everyone goes crazy for shopping because of very low prices.
As said earlier, this is a day after giving thanks and gratitude for all that we have as a people. On this day shoppers get higher than normal deals and therefore fight to get the best of any deal.
Why is the day called Black Friday?
It is said that, this day put struggling businesses into the black. In old school accounting, loses were shown in red whilst gains or profits were shown in black. You are deemed to be struggling or not making money if you are in the red.
On this day, struggling businesses then try to reverse this situation by reducing their prices in order, to sell more to be in the black.
Black friday is a last minute effort by businesses to redeem themselves from the years of poor sales and make profit before the year-end.
This platform hosts over 3,813,664 premium graphics and offers discount deals ranging from 50% – 99% between now and the end of the year. It is the best place for anyone searching for digital assets to buy.
If you are looking for any digital assets like graphics, KDP interiors, sublimations, fonts, crafts for Christmas, SVG’s, embroidery and more, then this is the place to shop on black friday and beyond
Premade or ready to upload interiors, and subcontracting to third parties are the ways for making greater inroads on KDP nowadays. First, this ensures you get the highest quality interiors and covers to stay ahead of the game. Using these interiors and covers is becoming necessary because of the high numbers of publishers on the KDP scheme currently. Speed and great interiors are the winning keys for success on Amazon KDP. It is necessary, that you upload as many books as possible to stand any chance of making a living money on KDP, otherwise there is no realistic way of making any appreciable money in this publishing business.
Early this week I was scanning through Creative Fabrica searching for interiors to load onto my KDP since I have been busy working on other projects. I came across this bundle of interior which cost $9.00 I got attracted to this bundle because of the caption “THE MOST WANTED KPD INTERIOR BUNDLE” and since I was scouting to buy a planner, and this bundle had an interior for 2022 – 2023 planner I decided to buy and then edit it to suit my personal need. But to my uter surprise, the interior of the planner was more than I expected, professionally done, and with little to no need for any edit, except for few typos.
I quickly engaged my designer, who worked on my covers, and by the next day my planner was fully uploaded into KDP.
I then decided to review each of the other content of the bundle, and they were super great interiors. I can say that I am a satisfied customer of creative fabrica so much happy to whoever is behind this great bundle.
