Literally, anybody can do this.
It doesn’t matter what country you’re in, it doesn’t matter your level of English. Or even if you’ve ever written a book or have any experience doing this.
Today, we’re getting into how you can publish low content books and be making hundreds of dollars a month or even thousands of dollars a month, depending on how successful you are.
The great thing about this one is you don’t need to be a writer; you don’t even need to be an inspiring writer to go into what low content books are.
We have to first understand what is content to me. Pretty much content is like information magazines, youtube videos, videos in general, newspaper articles. It’s all information that encompasses content—the same thing with books. There’s tons of information in there, which is content. So low content books mean there’s not much information, and there are not many words, and it’s just a simple book.
So it’s super easy to sell these books online because you can make hundreds of books within a few days instead of taking months and months and months to write a book; if you’re ready, I’m ready. Let’s get into today’s article.
Today we’re getting into ways you can sell low content books today on Amazon, which is one of the number one search engines in the world.
Pretty much the goal of low content books is instead of you writing, you’re going to be making your end reader do the writing.
So some examples of low content books are journals, notebooks, meal diaries, diaries in general, colouring books, activity books, puzzles, calendars, guest books, anything like this.
If you’ve heard the trend, pretty much your end reader is going to be doing most of the writing; you can make a one-page copy and paste it for the entire book and sell it online. What is great about these books is that these books pretty much sell themselves compared to self-published books.
You do not have to make a trailer; you don’t have to pitch it when you sell a notebook online. People know what it is, and that’s why this way to get online selling books is the easiest way that I’ve found to become a seller of books online on amazon.
All right, let’s get into the tutorial; you can do this 100% for free online. On your own with different Softwares available online that you can use.
One software that I have found to streamline this whole process and make this super simple that anybody can do is Bookbolt. Bookbolt is a low content book creator that makes this process super, super easy for you by creating templates for you for the interior of your book and then also templates for your cover.
So the cover you can create within this platform, and what’s excellent about Bookbolt is they have features inside this software where you can use keyword research.
I was just looking at colouring books here, and I can see that the average prices are going on Amazon, and the average cost is about 7 49.
You can see different keywords here. But the great thing is you can look at the most popular selling books on amazon through what you want to do.
So if you want to do a colouring book, you can see what other people are doing with different keywords and how the covers look to get an idea. I think the colour book is going to be a little too complicated for today.
So I’m going to type in notebook as in a notebook it is just all the same. It’s just every page is exactly the same.
So really, the only thing we have to do is create a cover. Like I said, with low content books, we’re gonna be making one single page and copy and paste it into the entire book and to be able to sell this online.
So the most work they’re going to be doing is on the cover, and that’s pretty much it loading come on.
The process is pretty simple for creating your book, and you really can just follow along step by step through the software so that you can’t go wrong.
At a high level, the process is:
Create a cover (use the provided images/patterns or upload your own)
Add some text to the cover.
Use the tools to do keyword research to find what will sell best and at what price you should sell it. (This is one of the best features and is so important!)
Use the templates to design the inside of your book
Pick the number of pages that you want for your book
Choose the book’s size that you will create (YOu can create multiple books just by changing the size to give people options.
They have all these different kinds of templates for your monthly to-do list, online shopping, track her chores, list, reading lists, the list goes on and on and on. Of all these things, you can just copy and paste to make your own book.
Okay, so if you’re somebody like me who is into the design and want to have the best-looking cover possible, I’m going to show you what I did and what I do to make my low content books really pop and stand out. But if you are somebody with not that much experience with design or don’t want to pay anybody to make you a cover for their platform.
Inside of Bookbolt is fantastic. You can just use a picture, create something simple. It could be super simple as that, and you’re good to go; you’re done.
If you want to spend a bit more time on the cover, it’s hard to beat Canva to quickly create eye-catching designs that are perfect for these low content books.
It really is that simple to create your own low content book. Just follow the steps in bookbolt, create a cover in Canva and save it all. Then you are good to go!

We’re just going to find the ones that are most relevant to the book that I made. Yeah. Yeah. All right.

You can flip through and see nothing is past the perimeters; nothing is in the spine. It looks perfectly aligned. You can go through all of your pages just to make sure once you’ve done that and you approve it, you’re gonna just go down the bottom here and click approve.
This is going to pretty much suck everything in and make your book a book.
All right now that you’ve approved it, it’s going to let you know what you’re printing costs are. It’s going to be about $4.35. So your book has to be priced higher than that to be able to make a profit. So you’re gonna save and continue. All right now, you’ve made it to the final part of publishing a book online is the price. So they’re going to tell you pretty much right here. This is when things get a little tricky because the price will change the pay on what country you’re in. However, you can choose the different countries you want to sell in. I like to just do all worldwide countries. Doesn’t matter. Um, here it’s going to tell you the minimum you can do is $7.25 after the royalty printing and all other stuff. So we’re going to do $10.88. Why? That number just sounds good to me. You’re printing costs is 4 35 you’re going to get 60% of this. So you’re going to make $2.18 a book. Once you’re ready to go, it looks good to you. You’re going to publish your paperback book one step further. You can do this on Kindle. So it is a digital book. If you were to do like a self-care book or something like Daily affirmations or a poem book, something like that quote book. You can definitely put that on a Kindle to make more money as well. All right now, it’s pretty much in the review. That’s what they’re telling you. You can also go forward with an ebook, but that is pretty much it.
So how you can scale this up? You can take this forward in a few ways. For example, I can keep all the content on the inside exactly the same. All I have to do is change the size and change the colour change on the front as far as the text. And I have a new book.
I can do this exact same colour inside everything and just change the size.
Some people want a notebook that can fit inside of their purse. Somebody might enjoy a larger notebook that is the size of a regular piece of paper. Some people want medium so you can take the same copy and pasted format, do this in different colours, do this in different sizes, change the title and you can do this and put it on amazon and make hundreds or thousands of dollars a month by doing this. Super simple.
That’s just an introduction to how to streamline your book sales with low content. Book super easy with a platform like bookbolt combined with Canva or any other software you like, but you can stick with the bookbolt 100% if you have no experience. It is super, super easy.
Bookbolt is not free. There’s basic pricing, and there’s also pro pricing. I use the pro pricing because there’s just so much you can do with it. Like the keyword research, have all of those templates on the inside to just copy and paste and do Practically nothing to get this online. If you use 100 what’s in bookbolt, you can get a book uploaded probably within 20 minutes.
