Kdp Publishing Journey, What Are Your Challenges? by evb2000: 12:46pm On Nov 15, 2022
This trend is for those who genuinely went into kdp to write and publish their intellectual works and are finding it difficult to scale. It is not for those who purchased those fake courses flying around on facebook and twitter and want to hammer overnight.

I have been writing and publishing on amazon for a while have been getting so much mentions, and emails from followers of my japa diary. I have decided to dedicate one week to answer some questions. Just one week, so you can drop your questions.

No one should DM me, i won't respond. So, now is the time to ask your questions.

.I really commend your effort. I tried kdp in the year 2020 during lock down, wrote a life story but to published it was a problem. The guy I met on nairaland that was suppose to mentor me was after his selfish gain. I will really appreciate if you can point me in the right direction, because I am really fed up with this country (job wise). Thanks

Hi, evb2000! Thanks for allowing us ask questions. I have a question regarding keyword research.

When trying to get keywords for my kdp high content book, is it advisable to get keyword from "Google recommended tools" like Ahrefs.com, Keywordtool, Keyword.io, Keyworddominator.com etc.??

I know that some people use the guaranteed publisher rocket tool for their keyword research but as someone who doesn't have the $97 to purchase publisher rocket, can I use those tools I mentioned above?

Another question. About the number of pages my kdp book should be, at least how many pages would you recommend(I need your recommendation) I write to solve people's problems through amazon kdp?

Is my page number a determining factor for amazon kdp sales?

Search for step by step kdp book publishing guide on youtube, there are several videos that will take you through the publishing process for both kindle, paperback and hardcover.

How do you get content on books to write? A person I recently asked to mentor me on kindle publishing (I offered to help her write books for free in exchange for her mentorship) asked me to write a book on a business topic that doesn't have much content on the internet. I tried researching online, but I haven't gotten the results I wanted.

In such a situation, how do you think I can get content for my book?

I don't focus on page counts. My focus is on how to exhaust all relevant information as regards the problem i am proferring solution for. I want to give my readers value, so they can drop a good review after reading my book(s). I am currently working on a book and its 90k words already and over 200 pages. I checked the word count after i am done writing and covered all relevant information.

I give buyers value. However, non of my books is less than 30k words.

Everything you need is on google, but you are assembling the information in a book, using you words. It's more like explaining things in your words to a layman. With this, you are sure of a plagiarism free content.

I don't know if you'd be angry about this question. Are you open to hiring amazon kdp book writers? I feel with your travel plans coupled with other businesses you might have, getting people to write for you might seem like an awesome idea.

Are you open?

My mentor once got his hands burnt using writers and he advised me against it, especially Nigerian writers. So my answer to your question is NO. I won't need a writer. I do my jobs myself. I want to be sure of what i put out. I can't afford to compromise of quality of my content.

to be sincere with you, KDP is porous and competitive, too competitive. The reason is that too much of people are there only because of making money. You can have a single topic that will have like 1000 books on that topic. If you are lucky to check the content, you will see that it's the same thing, just change of English language or chapter. Most people to that bought The course on KDP just left it there after publishing like 5 times and no sale. What's the reason, people are too much there, so it's hard to sell. A guy on the telegram group said he published 62 books before making 500 dollars. Imagine the length of time before publishing such. So, try other sources of income like Agriculture, Importation, Exportation. KDP is just like trial and error o. There's every possibility that you won't sell.

Key tool to purchase is a good laptop and premium plagiariasm checker. I use plagiarismcheckerX. Make sure to write plagiarism free content and avoid taking images from google.

Search for titles that are doing well and look at the negative reviews. Ensure to update yours with what the negative reviewers are complaining about. You know a good book by their low ABSR. Finally, set out some funds to promote your book using amazon ams.

Use 7 of the most relevant keywords to the title. To be honest, keywordtooldominator.com arranges these keywords of a title in order of relevance. If u can, subscribe to this website, it will help. For tools to invest in, i would recomment publisher rocket.

Hello Sir, thanks for this opportunity, I am an ardent reader of your thread and your progress so far is remarkable.

Got some questions to ask please:
1. How do you come up with titles for your books please (is there a BSR count you work with/age of a book you model).
2. You opened a new KDP account, wrote some books and started getting sales almost immediately, how were you able to know the books that would sell.
3. How are you able to search for profitable niches on Amazon.
4. Writing 30,000 words book isn't a child's play, how are you able to churn out this kind of books and how long does it take you to review a book before publishing, do you make use of AI tools?

Your response would be appreciated.

Your response would be appreciated.
Here are the answers:
1. Research on amazon platform
2. Looking at other books that are doing well in a less competitive niches
3. By painstakingly going through each category and subcategories (No shortcut). It requires work. You can dedicate a whole week for this.
4. Its not child's play, it requires a lot of work. You will make money from it. If a company offers to pay you say N200,000 a month to do this, you will gladly do it, so why not do it an earn in millions in the long run. I took it seriously and it paid off. I don't shy away from hardwork when i am certain it will pay me good money.
