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.

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.

The Ultimate keys to harvesting emails

Introduction

Lead Magnet

A lead magnet is anything that you provide to someone in exchange for their contact information. They are designed to pull in, or “magnetize” more leads. Lead magnets are important, as they show your first opportunity at providing value to your audience. It’s your chance to shine and show people that you know what you are talking about, and show how excited you are to be talking about it. As the term might suggest, lead magnets are used for lead generation. A lead magnet is a great way to show that you care about what you are talking about. It’s a great way to build an audience. In marketing, a lead magnet is a free digital product or download. It encourages website visitors to leave their email addresses. And opt-in to an email list. That’s why lead magnets in marketing are called opt-in bribes and content upgrades. Lead magnets usually target website visitors who are not yet ready to buy any item from the store. If they leave their email addresses, they become secondary conversion goals. Businesses will send targeted marketing materials continuously until they convert into actual buyers. It often starts by creating a relevant free product. Online businesses try to identify different queries that bring them to traffic, and then create a free digital download around that topic. The most popular free digital downloads are e-books, white papers, newsletters, and webinars.
After creating a free product, online stores create forms for website visitors to complete to receive a free product. Businesses take their time in designing and optimizing these forms for a higher chance that visitors will leave their email addresses and opt-in to an email marketing list. Online businesses then place these forms on the most suitable part of the websites. Website visitors who engage the website may click the lead magnet, sign up, and complete the form. Once completed, the free product is immediately sent via email automation. The website’s visitors then become part of an email marketing list that is targeted regularly until they are converted into purchasing a product.
Do not overcomplicate this process. Write a 3-10 pages e-book relating to the niche you are selling, and upload it to your landing page or email platform. This written book become the lead magnet.

CREATIVE FABRICA

For Your lead magnet to be effective, it should: Be free (with sign-up)

  • Make a promise
  • Engage with key points
  • Add great value to your customer
  • Satisfy a need or solve a problem (at least give direction to solving the problem)
  • Appeal to your target audience
  • Provide needed information
  • Have a clear call to action.

The title and cover — the title and cover is what gives your lead magnet its magnetic force. Makes sense, right? Your big chance to showcase the value of your offer comes through;

(i)  How it is called and

(ii) How it’s presented.

Your “book” will indeed be judged by its cover. Don’t think that the rest of your lead magnet can be rubbish. No! You may be able to get away with growing your email list with a lead magnet that makes a big promise, but delivers little in substance. Do not forget, this flimsy strategy will backfire in the long run. You will not only succeed in convincing your lead magnet to push your prospects’ buttons in all the right ways.

The How to: Customers want guidance

So much of what takes place online is essentially a Q&A exercise. Everyone’s looking for answers, instructions, and guidance of some sort to a problem in they are wrestling with. The “how to” is the essential way to fulfil these requests.

CREATIVE FABRICA

How to lubricate your lead machine?

1/ Try making your headline a list

This works the best if your lead magnet contains a list of items, a checklist or a number of solutions to a problem. As we all know, nothing works best at engaging the audience than openly stating what your lead magnet contains. Straight information about your lead magnet’s content. Example

  • How to Decorate Your Home Office;
  • How to solve your company’s high labor turnover issues
  • Twelve Ideas that cost less than $50.

It focuses on a specific problem. There is no mystery about what solutions they’re going to offer. Notice how the specificity adds to the magnetism. There is a promise of actionable and trustworthy information, a reader will be able to start implementing in their business or life right away.

2/ The command

But you could also be super bold and make a powerful statement about your eBook or checklist. One way to do it is by using “the ultimate” formula.

For example:

  • The ULTIMATE guide to digital marketing
  • The ULTIMAT guide to Affiliate Marketing
  • The ULTIMATE guide to making money online

The word “ultimate” is precise and definitive. You could also put it this way;

  • Unrivaled guide
  • Complete guide
  • Really good guide
  • The last guide to _____ you’ll ever need
  • The definitive guide to Affiliate Marketing

3/ Simply tell your readers why they experience a particular problem

This is the “reason why” approach, titles is as simple as listing the main problem your eBook targets. For example:

  • “Why you are not making money on Twitter.”

However, you can also use this formula to write list-based titles, i.e.:

  • “5 Reasons why your calls to action don’t convert”
  • “10 most common reasons for low website conversions.”

4/ Compel customers with action

The command approach to writing a great lead-magnet-title is simple and effective.

These are in the form of a directive or command that starts with a verb examples like: Gas-Up, Optimize, Decorate, and build. Think through other options relevant to your audience.

You may be able to help a potential customer save, grow, expand, accelerate, win, dominate, start, end, control, train, learn. All verbs, all good.

Conclusion

Lead magnet is very important to the harvesting of emails, and emails are the foundation for any effective long term relationship with the customer.
