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.

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.

HOW CREATE AND SELL COURSES ONLINE FOR MONEY

“Never depend on single income. Make investments to create a second source” -Warren Buffett

Introduction

Have you ever thought of packaging your ideas and expertise into a product that could be sold on the internet for money? You can monetize whatever knowledge, ideas, and expertise in a product and sell online for money. And this can make you money even when you are asleep. If you are looking for a reliable and sustainable way to earn some good money on the internet, then creating and selling a digital product is the kind of business you need to get into. Can you teach what you are good at to other people? Regardless of the answer, monetizing this knowledge in an e-book or video course will make you money to help run away from a 9–5 rat race.

Creating and selling DIGITAL PRODUCTS on the internet is a booming and lucrative industry. Digital products are great and reliable ways to make money online, especially in this digital era. Selling digital products is lucrative. Online courses have become popular due to the COVID. Self-education through online learning is an emerging trend, which is preferred not only by old people like me but by the young, as well. Online courses have come to fill in the gap of knowledge and learning. The significant increase in the number of users of the internet searching for knowledge is going up by the day. This could be attributed to the availability of electronic gadgets, for example smartphones, tablets, and computers. This has facilitated the ease at which one can acquire knowledge in their field of interest. It must be mentioned that COVID has pushed more people to be on the internet regularly, searching for the keywords’ money online home. The pandemic has also created new categories of students looking for access to education and learning resources. There are those comfortable with the flexibility of education that comes with online learning and courses. Especially learning in their own convenience. No pressure synonymous with traditional school learning.

It is estimated, by the Global Industry Analysts that online learning will be worth more than $240 billion by 2021.

The reason for this is that more and more people are running away from the traditional work of reporting to work at nine and closing at five. More and more people are sharpening their skills online and self-educating themselves through courses to be self-employed. Digital education is the new trend of the future, and this is becoming the most preferred way for most people to learn skills online. You learn at your own pace. The traditional belief that learning or education only happens or takes place in the classroom has been made useless. Creating and selling online courses had witnessed significant growth. Demand for online courses and other digital products has soared very high, accounting for a large part of active businesses online.

Do you know you can turn your skills, expertise, knowledge, and passion into a product and sell online? Ask the following questions, what can I do best? What am I good at? What am I passionate about, what solution can I provide to others? Find a problem you can solve, and build a product / business around it. Know and understand your target market or audience, and find out what are the challenges, problems, or pain they may be experiencing. And help bridge that gap.

WHAT IS A PRODUCT?

Anyone can dream up great ideas, but an idea is nothing until it’s realized, be it as a website, a physical product, an app, or a user interface.

Jens Martin Skibsted

Before we proceed further, let’s answer the question, what is a product? A product is anything that provides value.

A digital product is any product that does not have a physical substance. The turning of your skill and abilities into something of value for users. “Digital product is a euphemism for information product.” The ultimate aim of creating a digital product is to solve a problem or provide some form of benefit to an audience. And to the creator to provide financial benefits. The following are examples of digital products, Online Courses, Ebooks, Couching, Digital Arts, Professional Services, Newsletters, Podcast, Games etc.

WHAT TO CONSIDER IN CREATING A DIGITAL PRODUCT

KNOW YOUR NICHE AND EXPERTISE

Creating a digital product for your audience or clients requires a complete understanding of your niche, and the industry or market. What is a niche? Before you begin with this online business, you must first choose your niche market and target audience. A niche could be built from areas where there are problems, worries, or interest. It could also be where there are demands or gaps, and a solution could be offered. You can only promote a product effectively if you have total control of the niche industry.

Every niche you choose must come out of something you; ¬ enjoy ¬ Interest ¬ Passionate about. ¬ Feel good about You can achieve this by asking yourself a few questions.

● What am I passionate about?

● What is the gap in the market?

● What is my interest?

● Are their affiliate products for that niche?

● Build relationship with your audience

Be consistent: You can increase traffic to your website by creating the perception in the minds of your audience that you are an expert in your niche. In this way, people can come to you for help and buy what you sell. And how can one become an expert in his/her niche? Be clear with the value or solution you intend to provide to your audience, followers or the market in general. Do you know the need of your target audience? What is the goal of your target market? Which gap in the market are you trying to fill? Your product must solve the need at the marketplace, otherwise, they might not show any interest in what you are offering. Seek information about the need of the industry through research. What are industry experts discussing and talking about? And what projections and trends forecast have they said about the future? What opportunities are you trying to exploit at the marketplace? Who are you target users or clients, why do you think they need that kind of product? What are some of the things that drive your audience? Understand this and map up a long-term strategy for them. Narrow everything down to your audience. Do you have a fair idea of how your target audience likes their digital product? The following are how digital products could be packaged and delivered, videos, ebooks, audio, courses, and more.

REASONS WHY PEOPLE START ONLINE COURSES

The following are some reasons for creating and selling digital products;

● There is no limit to the quantity of courses, videos needed, one course created to be sold to several people for several years to come. There is no need to worry about holding inventory, packaging, or the shipment. These are issues with physical products, not digital products. Create once and sell many times

● There is no limit on the quantity of products that one can sell. You can sell whatever quantity anyone orders. You create a digital product once, but sell them forever

● Digital products are easy to distribute, significantly more sustainable, and 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 way people learn has changed. E-learning is the future of education

● Low cost to start

CREATING YOUR FIRST DIGITAL PRODUCT

teach:able

Because educational and learning materials are highly in demand, it makes sense to move into that niche to enjoy part of the big cake. As stated earlier, digital education is the new trend, and this is the most preferred way for most people to learn skills online.

Knowledge is power, but how can you turn your knowledge and expertise into a money-making machine? Use the knowledge you know to create a digital product. For anyone who knows how to explain himself to others, turning this knowledge into a packaged product and sell for money.

PLATFORMS FOR CREATING, HOSTING AND SELLING COURSES ONLINE

Dacrev money making secrets

 “Ignoring online marketing is like opening a business but not telling anyone.” —

KB Marketing Agency

It is undeniable that the world is changing and changing at a pace difficult for most people and businesses to keep up. And the world of work is following along with these dramatic changes. The general understanding of work has shifted dramatically. People now work to have a sense of self-identity, purpose, and freedom. The desire to earn money online is on the rise, and most people see this as freedom from the 5-9 work routine.

The internet has provided several ways and opportunities to make money. Even though open to everyone on the face of the planet, these opportunities are known by only a few people.

The Internet does not care about age, country, or language. With the Internet impacting our society, more and more people are working online and spending a considerable amount of their time.

This book will provide you with a wealth of treasure on how to successfully and reliably make money over the internet, regardless of where you live. There are some skills, tactics and secrets involved in the other to achieve that level of success to move away from a 9-5 job. Many people have realized their long-term dream by adopting some guidance prescribed in this book.

Online earning is one of the latest trends, enabling people to work anywhere. In the days when the internet and social media were not available, people made money by marketing and selling their own products. Others commute from one location to another to offer their offices and to provide the needed services.

There are several ways of earning money online. With online work, as income rises, so is the zeal to work harder. You do not need huge initial capital to start any online business. Most of the time, all you need is a skill, tricks & tactics, hard work, and consistency. Working and making money online requires that you build trust and provide value. People only follow your recommendations because they trust you. It cannot be overemphasized, some people make a lot of money online, while others rarely make anything at all.

Do you desire to be your own boss, and work at your own timelines? Do you prefer your product to continue generating money for you whilst you sleep? Do not forget, online businesses do not sleep.

Unfortunately, the majority fail to earn any significant amount. This is because they do not have the skill and do not know the secrets, even which appropriate niche to focus on. Most people jump from one method to the other, with some settling on any method to start working, only to fail at the end.

The question is, which ones are more reliable and sustainable?

Before delving into the best ways to make money online, there are few virtues we must know before thinking of making online money.

How to Grow your blog

Greate Conent

You need to keep your audience happy and engaged: that way, they’re sure to stick around, but keep coming back for more. Creating quality content is more than showcasing your talents. It is about helping your audience grow, generating new leads, spreading brand awareness and building your brand perception. You do that by keeping it fresh. Keeping it interesting. By constantly endeavouring to provide something new and dynamic that really gets your readers talking. Here are a few ideas on ways to create something special:

Tell a story. Readers love a story, or even just an interesting example of how your content really relates to you. Make it personal.

Build Engagement

For your content to be engaging, it needs to be easily scalable. Writing that is easy to digest in a clear, easy-to-read format that will keep your readers engaged regardless of the length. The good news? This is super easy to do. Here are some tips:

  • Keep your paragraphs short. Don’t scare off your readers with lengthy and uninterrupted text.
  • Use subheadings. Divide your information into sub-sections using subheadings. See how I use subheadings (bigger fonts) on every given tip here?
  • Use lists. See what I did here? They’re much easier on eyes.
  • Use visual aids. Make your content a little more interesting with high-quality visuals.
  • Highlight important points. Use bolded or underlined font on important information.
  • Use readable fonts. Use commonly-used fonts such as Verdana, Arial, or Times Roman. Your font size must be at least 12px or larger (use 16px or above if you have an older audience).
  • You can also build engagement by making your content easy to share on social media with a visible social sharing button. You can mention awesome brands in your posts and let them know about it. Most brands love this and will be likely to share. You can also add a call to action at the bottom of your posts. Using social proof, example: “Join other 100K creative bloggers. Incorporate your posts into e-newsletters and encourage personal responses.

Ideas for blogging

People enjoy reading about individuals who are passionate about what they write about.

The following are some great ideas and Niches for blogging:

  • Health and Fitness
  • Medication
  • Workouts & Fitness
  • Healthy recipes
  • Travel & Tour
  • Hidden Attraction
  • festivals
  • Money & Investments

How monetize your blog

Google adsense

To start earning money through ads, you need a Google AdSense account. You can head over to the AdSense page, and click on Sign Up Now. If you don’t have an existing Google account, you have to set up a new one. A very simple process. If you already have a Google account, simply sign in. As the publisher of a blog, advertising can provide a healthy revenue stream for your online content. Advertisers are willing to pay to gain exposure to your audience. In the same way that a newspaper with a large circulation can charge advertisers more, the more popular your site content, the more you can earn. There are many advertisers who are keen on paying a premium price for your ad space. You can offer advertising space on your site directly to businesses that want to appear alongside your content. That’s called a direct deal. You can also use an ad network like Google AdSense to sell your ad space on your behalf.

Sell Courses

Bloggers used to provide educational materials for free. It is no longer so, bloggers nowadays are turning their passion into creating e-books and selling the knowledge for money. Many bloggers are trying to make money online by packaging their expertise and selling it to their audience so that they too can learn.

Creating and selling courses has a higher earning potential than other online money-making methods. You are in control of the price, and you take the full commission. People are looking round on the internet to learn and grow. By providing them a way to learn, you have something of value that they are willing to pay for.

How to promote your blog

Contact an Influencer

Influencers are individuals on social media whose views and opinion matters. They are deemed important by their target audience. These are people who can help you promote your content and boost your traffic. You can use their influence to help promote your blog content.

You can also ask other fellow bloggers to share your content on their page. This could be done by looking out for another blog with a related niche and a considerable number of subscribers. You talk to them to share your blog post across their social networks. In return, you reward them in the same measure.

The other way to get someone to promote your blog post is by talking about that person’s blog/product in your blog post. What you do is, you write a blog post and refer to another blog, or more link it to your current post. You then contact the other person to politely ask them to share your blog post across their social networks.
