What Are Low Content And No Content Books?
Low content books contain very little content. They come in the form of ruled notebooks, cursive writing exercise books, planners and colouring books etc. No content books like sketchbooks don’t have any content other than page numbers or a border around each page.
Where can I Publish Low Content Books?
You can publish low content books on Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP). What you need to do is create an interior and cover, upload your manuscript and book cover, enter the details, keywords and choose a price. Amazon KDP does the rest of the work by printing and sending your book to the customer.
How Do You Promote Low Content Books?
You can promote low content books in a variety of ways. Share them on social media, add your books to your own website or blog, pay for Amazon Ads, send them to your email list. You could even create a Youtube channel.
Pinterest is a good place to promote your books as well. I managed to get my first two sales a week after starting to create books by promoting on Pinterest, Twitter and my own website. I use a Pinterest scheduler called Tailwind, try Tailwind for free here!
Do Low Content Books Sell?
Yes, they do! As an example, let’s take a look at a dot grid notebook on Amazon at the time of writing this post which had a BSR of 52,068. If I enter the details in this Amazon book sales calculator you will see the monthly and daily sales.
This book currently makes 88 sales per month. If the publisher is earning, for example, a $2 royalty, then it’s making around $176 per month. By creating more books, it’s possible to make a very healthy monthly income.
Remember that this income is passive and you only need to create your books once! There are many publishers who make thousands per month.
Low Content Book Interiors
When you first start creating books, you can buy premade interiors, a good place to buy them is Creative Fabrica. I love this website and use it all the time.
Book Bolt and Tangent Templates have many ready-to-use interiors as well. When you become more experienced, it’s worth learning to create your own interiors.
How Can I Design My Own Book Cover?
The lazy way would be to hire someone on Fiverr who can design KDP covers for a reasonable price. It’s so much more rewarding creating your own designs though.
Tangent Templates provide templates to help guide you and keep your design within the print area. These can be uploaded to Canva or other design software.
The easiest way to create covers and get the feel of it when you’re first starting out is by using Book Bolt. Book Bolt also provides free interiors, a keyword research tool, a listing optimisation tool, a product database and a trend hunter, plus lots more.
They have plenty of tutorials as well to help you get started. Read more about Book Bolt in my post here.

Making money selling low-content books is a great side hustle, it can be done at home in your spare time and doesn’t cost much to get started. I really enjoy it, take a look at the low-content books I’ve created so far.
