How to Sell Low Content Books for Massive Profits

If you thought the only way to make money selling books was to be a world class author who cranks out 400 page thrillers like Stephen King every week, I've got great news for you.

Thanks to Amazon's print-on-demand service, Kindle Direct Publishing, you can make money selling books with little to no content as quickly as today!


I know...it sounds crazy but it's absolutely possible and in this article, I'm going to show you everything you need to know about it so you can get started making them ASAP. 

What Is Low Content Publishing?

Low content publishing aims to help companies who have limited money produce good-looking content. Writing isn't a simple job. Sometimes a good product takes a few weeks to develop.

But even that doesn't mean there is anyone willing to sell my work.

When you think of a wealthy author, what comes to mind? It's likely you thought of a New York Time's best selling author like Tucker Maxx, Stephen King or J. K. Rowling. You probably aren't thinking of someone who publishes books that are essentially blank.

But thanks to something called Kindle Direct Publishing, the average Joe can make a fortune selling low content (or "no content") books on Amazon. This comes with little overhead and minimal writing skills. 

What Are Low Content Books?

Low content books are essentially books that are meant to be filled in by the recipient. It is intentionally left "empty" by the author so it can be used as a sort of tool.

Popular low content books include things like:

  • Blank Journals and Diaries
  • Composition Notebooks
  • Children and Adult Colouring books
  • Food Journals and Workout Logs
  • Budgeting Notebooks
  • Puzzle Books
  • Recipe Books
  • Paper Games (i.e. Mad Libs)
  • Guest Books
  • Schedule Planners
  • And More!

Basically, if the book is intended to be used and not read. It is filled out by the person using it and not the "author" then it is considered "Low Content".

These could be as simple as a blank journal or as complex as a workout log with guided routines for literally years.

If you are like most people, you have probably bought plenty of books like this in your lifetime. You can imagine just how much money you can make just by publishing your own Low Content books on Amazon KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing). 

How Do People Sell Low Content Books?

There are plenty of ways to go about making and selling Low Content Books. Just like in most cases with e-commerce, the easiest way for people to sell low content books is by creating and selling them through Amazon.

The quick and easy process of creating one of these books, paired with the extremely low overhead cost, creates an incredible sales opportunity for anyone with good design skills and a good idea of what keywords to rank for.

What Is Amazon KDP?
