What Types of Books Can You Sell on Amazon?

Amazon is one of the best things to happen to people who want to make money online since sliced bread. It is a huge platform to market books for you to sell – and the best part is that it doesn’t cost you a cent to start. All you need to do is sign up for an Amazon sellers account and you can start listing your books.   

You can sell any type of books you choose on Amazon, everything to your great American novel to simple sketchbooks that have no words at all in them. You can sell lined journals or children’s picture books. You can sell coffee-table photo books or even your own families’ stories. Amazon is pretty forgiving for the types of books you can sell. It is up to you, however, to create books that sell to enable you to make money online.   

If you want to make money online selling books on Amazon, you have to do a little research into what the best-selling books are. If you go to Amazon’s website (amazon.com) you will find one of the categories is best sellers. Take a close look at the types of books that are selling. This should guide you in the type of books you upload if you want to make money online.    

When I go onto Amazon’s website and search for best-selling books, the first one that comes up is a book on weight loss. You can’t deny that weight-loss is a big subject in today’s world. There are so many different ways to lose weight and the number of books on the subject is astronomical. But if you don’t have the wherewithal to write a whole book on weight loss you don’t have to be discouraged. There are others ways to make money selling books for people interested in weight loss.   

How about creating a weight loss tracking journal where people can record their weight loss journey, starting with their beginning weight, what they should eat each day, their current weight, and so on. People are always needing these types of journals. They are easy to create and are considered low content. You just need to provide the space and headings. The purchaser fills in the blanks.   

You could also create a diary-type journal for people wanting to lose weight where they put in their daily thoughts and feelings about their weight loss journey. A diary is a breeze to create because you only have to add in dates and lines for the person to write in. The real seller of this type of book would be the cover. It would have to be in line with weight loss and attractive to appeal to people.   

Well, you get the idea. You really don’t have to write a whole book with 30,000 words in it to be able to sell books on Amazon. You just have to choose the topics that sell and create simpler books along that theme.    

You can create simple lined journals that sell well too. As said, the covers are important to attract people to your products – and remember that even the lined journals should have something special inside to make them stand out. A simple embellishment that matches the cover is enough, sometimes, to make it unique.    

So do your research. Find out which topics are the most popular and begin creating your books to match. The more books you upload to Amazon, the more chance you have of creating a good passive income.
