What is a low content book?

Come up with a unique idea for low content books

There are many low content books on Amazon, so try and think of something unique. 

I've created 4 low content books using the BookBolt templates.

One that I'm particularly fond of is my Moving out of home: Feel good recipes from home recipe book.

When I created this book, my idea was that parents could handwrite recipes in this book for when their child is moving out of home with recipes they enjoyed from home. It's a cute little gift to help their child start cooking and to feel comforted by recipes from their childhood.

What are the best tips for listing low content books on Amazon?

I asked Iara Rudy, Head Of Business Development at BookBolt her best tips for listing low content books on Amazon. She said:

'RESEARCH, RESEARCH and more RESEARCH. Before I start designing a low content book to put up for sale on Amazon I need to ensure there is a demand and low competition. This is why I think BookBolt is very valuable: I can get information that I would not be able to obtain without it. I know which are the best sellers in every book category, I know the best sellers pricing strategy and how do they look like.

Furthermore, spending a good time finding the right keywords with BookBolt will determine sales. We need to list the low content books with the keywords our audience is using when searching on Amazon.'

You will need to create an Amazon KDP Account - carefully fill in your tax information and also read the terms and conditions. 

After creating your Amazon KDP account, the next step is to sign in and provide Paperback details in the Bookshelf section. For example, you need to provide the Book title, Author name, Short Description of your book, and sales price. Again, look at other examples of low content books, so that your book is competitive in sales price. BookBolt also has videos with tips for finding suitable categories on Amazon.

Best practice for marketing low content books and driving sales

BookBolt has a number of posts on their website for building a brand and getting reviews and creating Amazon ads to promote low content books. This is going to be the hard part, but the most crucial part in driving attention to your book. Stick with it. Create a business plan. Decide how much you want to invest in advertising and what your returns will be. If you have a social media platform - spread the word through these!
