You are listening to the Kaz Johnson Show. Hello and welcome to session 103 This week I am talking to you about Creating and selling printables on Amazon’s KDP.
Hello and welcome to the Kaz Johnson Show, my name is Kaz Johnson and I am your host today, this is episode 103 and today I am talking about Creating and selling printables on Amazon’s KDP.
So first of all if you don’t know what a printable is, it’s a digital download in the form of art, graphic designs, and even text in a form of a book or colouring books, either children’s or adults, which seem to be really popular at the moment.
People can download them from a website and print from your own computer, or upload them to places like Amazon where people purchase your printable in the form of a book and Amazon will pay you royalties when someone purchases your printable.
You can also sell printables on your own website or places like Etsy, but today, I am just going to focus on selling printables on Amazon.
Amazon is great for selling printables because they will market it for you, print it out, send it to the customer, take the payments and deal with all the customer service. You just need to create the printable and upload it to Amazon KDP website, get it approved and then collect the royalties when Amazon sells it.
So, where do you start…
Back in episode 102, I talked about How to create and pdf ebook, you are now ready to create a printable for example, think about all the things you do that you can help your customers with. For example, I created a 90-day social media planner and sold it on Amazon. It was easy as I already had this printable that I use for my own social media planning, but what if you don’t have anything?
No problems, just look at all things either you or your customer does over and over again. This could be a to-do list with all the things you need to do in your niche, for example as a teacher, I create lesson plans and schemes of work with templates I use over and over again. These can be collated and put into a PDF and sold as a printable.
Take a moment to think… do a brain dump of all the things you do over and over again.
Now, here comes the fun part.
I use Word to create my printables as there are a lot of tables, but you can use free software like Canva to create your printable. If you head on over to kazjohnson.com/103 I have a link to all the resources for you in the show notes
Now you have created your downloadable, you are ready to upload it and sell it on Amazon. First of all, you need to create an Amazon KDP account. It’s really easy to do. Here are the steps…
If you are new to Amazon KDP, you can use an Amazon login to register. Just sign in with your existing Amazon login or create a new account. I will put the link for you in the shownotes, just head on over to kazjohnson.com/103
Next steps on getting started. Enter your author, payment, and tax information to set up your Amazon KDP account.
Then enter your Book details. Enter information like title, author, and description to help readers find your book
Next, you need to create your manuscript & cover. Transform your manuscript into a formatted file and design a cover that grabs readers’ attention.
Finally, you finish with the rights & pricing. Decide where and for how much you want to sell your book.
And there you go, it’s really that easy, so it’s over to you. What can you create or what have you already created that other people will find useful and you will save them time. People buy convenience, and this another way for you to earn a passive income.
