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.

ABC TRACING

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

🌈 KDP Premade Interiors The Strategy Of Amazon Best Sellers

PREMADE KDP INTERIORS

INTRODUCTION

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 content books 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.

CREATIVE FABRICA

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

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

GUMROAD

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.

CONCLUSION

There is absolutely nothing wrong in using already made interiors in your KDP business. Fortunately, this is the trend into competing and making sales on the platform.

💥 AMAZON KDP MOST WANTED INTERIOR BUNDLE

KDP WANTED BUNDLE

INTRODUCTION

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.

CREATIVE FABRICA

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.

Below is the bundle
