Keyword Research for Amazon KDP

It is one of the crucial parts to start publishing books on Amazon KDP. No one would like to start their journey when there are already big competitors.

After choosing the niche, it is important to publish your first book in such a low-competition market that anyone who will search on the topic, your book must be on the first page so that the buyer would not face any difficulty in taking a look at your book.

To find a good keyword for publishing your first book, you need to get on the amazon kindle section. You will find the step-by-step procedure below.

Another method to find the low competition topic on amazon Kindle is a suggestion term served by amazon when you type a word on amazon search.

You can also find the low competition topics just by searching on amazon but you also need to check the number of books or results showing on the page.

If the number of results on the page is less than 200, you can start writing on this topic and complete the book as soon as possible.

Do not hesitate to write on a topic that has more than 200 results but not more than 300 because you may not be successful to beat the competition when you are a beginner.

Also, if you will write in the same niche for different topics and you will publish a number of books in the niche, this will give you expertise and may help you to rank your books on the first page of the search result on amazon.

Create a Book

Publishing your books on amazon kdp does not require any technical skills but requires basic knowledge as you surf the internet through various websites.

Before publishing the book, you need to have a well-written book that is helpful for the readers and adds value to the knowledge of the readers.

There are two methods to have a book for publishing on Amazon KDP. The first method is to write a book yourself and the second method is to hire a writer to write for you. You can send them your requirements for writing a book at affordable rates.

Writing A Book

Writing is not just getting information and putting it down into words, you need to properly organize your content and help the reader to understand what you have written.

It is important to let the reader know what you want to say with your words so that the reader should not get confused.

Collect Information

When you are done with the selection of the topic on which you want to write, the next step is to collect and gather all the required information for writing on the topic.

The best thing I can suggest to beginners who are writing their first book on Amazon KDP is to learn how to write.

Verify The Information

This section is only for the people who are going to write on topics related to teaching, education, and other related niches in which you are gonna add reality-based information not fictional-based..

After writing the content for your book, it is necessary to verify the information that you have written in the book is true and fact-checked.

Spreading false information through the book is against the ethics of writing. Also, you may get banned from Amazon KDP when someone will report to amazon regarding this thing. However, writing truth and fact-checked information will give you more readers and more money.

But if you are going to write in the niches, such as stories, poems, quotes, and related niches, you do not need to verify the information that you are putting in the book.

Hiring a Writer

You can also hire a writer for writing the book. You can use Fiverr and Upwork for hiring a good writer at affordable rates and these platforms are one of the most trusted sites for hiring people for doing the work.

It is advised to not blindly trust the writer and go through the content before releasing the payment to the writer.

Formatting The Book

Would you ever purchase a book that can not be readable on your smartphone or does not have a specific aspect ratio and pagination?

Obviously, no one would look at a book that does not have the basic requirement for reading. Every reader will choose a book that is easy to read as per the device they have and they can easily access any random pages of the book with the help of pagination.

Same thing you have to do for your book before hitting the publish button on the amazon kdp. It means your book can be easily loaded on any device such as Smartphones, desktops, Tab, and other devices.

Your book should have pagination and images as per the requirement of the information and images are good for explaining anything to the readers.

One of the important things for formatting the book is to add the table of contents so that the reader can directly read what they want to read without scrolling through the pages.

Create a Cover For The Book

The cover is the first and the most important part of the book. You may have heard the quote “Don’t judge a book by its cover”.

But you may be judged by a cover you have designed for your book. It is the first thing that a buyer will look into before purchasing a book. Just like you have a thumbnail for the video on youtube, the amazon kdp book has a cover. 

You must have to design the cover of the book beautifully so that any buyer who would search on amazon should not leave the search result page without buying your book.

The buyer will get attracted to the cover and it may help you to increase the sale of the book.

Publishing Book on Amazon KDP

After creating your book for amazon, you need to open the amazon kindle publisher dashboard. Now, we will go step by step from registration to publishing the book.

Register on Amazon KDP

Now, your book is ready to be published and the first thing after writing and designing is to register yourself as a publisher.

Create your account on Amazon KDP by filling up the required information and going to the withdrawal section to add payment options. I would recommend you add a verified Payoneer account if you are facing any issues.

Write Title & Description

Title and descriptions are one of the initial things that any buyer will look at before purchasing. Catchy titles and descriptions will bring you more sales of books which as a result will provide more royalty from amazon.

To write them in a catchy way, you can refer to other books’ titles and descriptions if there are any on amazon search results or you can write by adding emotional words or by writing statistically.

Upload Book & Cover 

Uploading a book in the correct file format is necessary and here is the list of suitable file formats for amazon kdp.

  • KPF
  • PDF
  • Zip, HTM, HTML
  • TXT
  • RTF
  • EPUB
  • MOBI

After adding the title, descriptions, and book, you need to upload the cover which you created earlier.

Make sure to keep the size of the cover responsive and the filename that you have chosen for your cover image in the device should be the same as the book name.

How to Make Money on Amazon KDP Without Writing?

Search “license-free e-books” on Google and go to the sites which are giving the option to download the pdf version of the e-book. Edit the downloaded pdf version of an e-book as per the requirements. You can publish these license-free pdf on Amazon kdp but there is no proper information on whether this method is legal or not.

Final Words

After publishing your first book on Amazon KDP, you have started your journey to make money on amazon KDP in Nigeria. However, you need to repeat the above steps again and again to earn a lot of money.

In the initial days, you need to set the price of the book affordable so that new buyers can buy a book without hesitation.

The successive way to earn lots of money with KDP is to be patient while uploading books in less competitive markets.
