How To Chose The Right Topic For Your Kindle Publishing To Make Money Fast
Firstly, go to Google and search for topics of your choice. For the purpose of this article, I will pick a subtopic in the health and fitness niche. I will simply type “Diabetes” into the Google search bar so that Google can suggest to me what people are already searching for concerning my topic of interest. See the image below.
As you can see from the image above, Google suggested the top 10 frequently searched words that are related to my main topic, -which in this case is Diabetes. To further narrow down my search, I will have to select a topic from the ones Google already suggested to me. So, I selected “Diabetes Treatment”. Look at the screenshot below.
So, because I needed to pick a topic that I can easily write about, I looked at the suggestions Google made to me from that image above and I selected “Diabetes Treatment in Ayurveda”.
So, to be sure if people are actually searching for such a topic on the internet, I looked at the number of searches this particular topic has on Google, and guess what? It was so alarming and popular. Take a look at the circled area in the image below.
You see, the fact that this topic has over 19 million searches on Google, showed that people will likely read about it when I write a book on this topic. Also, I can go to the Amazon website to do further research to be certain if this particular topic is also popular on amazon.
By taking this step, I will be able to see if customers are already buying books written by other authors on this topic or related topics. This is a secret to writing a bestselling book on amazon.

Step-By-Step Process For Writing A Bestselling Book To Make You Money In Nigeria With KDP
Now that you have successfully selected a hot selling topic which is also referred to as a niche, it’s time to settle down and compose your first draft. There are two ways to do this. First, you can choose to write the book by yourself, or you can outsource someone to help you write your book.
Again, the process of writing and outsources a book writer and the list of the best websites that I use to outsource my writers are listed on my Kindle-Pub Millionaire’s Secrets Guide. So, you can check out the details.
Getting A Cover Design For Your Book
Also, your book needs to have a professionally designed eye-catching cover. This way, your prospective readers can easily trust you and be convinced to take a second look at your book. In the analog world, they say “don’t judge a book by its cover”. But, that rule outdated once it comes to digital products such as ebooks and other downloadable materials on the internet.
Your book will be judged by its cover over 80 percent of the time by your prospective readers. So, make sure your book cover is classic and of good quality. Again, you can simply design your book cover if you’re a good graphic designer, or hire someone from Fiverr to get your book cover design done for you.
Note: Fiverr is one of the websites I use for hiring graphic designers. Also, I revealed the details for hiring the best graphic designers for just $5 inside my training guide.
Formatting Your Book To Kindle Version
As soon as your book file and the cover are ready, it will be time to upload them into the Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) website. But before you do that, you will need to format the book to the standard size required by KDP for kindle ebooks and choose the right size for the paperback version.
So, if your book was outsourced, you can simply instruct the writer to convert the document the kindle standard size and 6 by 9 Size for the paperback version. Also, the formatted document will have to be converted to a PDF file so that you can easily upload it as a Kindle ebook or paperback version.
You won’t have much work to do here if you actually outsourced a writer for your book because most of the writers are already familiar with the Amazon standard for ebook and paperback.
But, if you choose to write the book yourself, you may have a little more work to do just to make sure your book is accepted and approved by the KDP team when it’s uploaded. You’ll have to get your book formatted to the right size by using Microsoft word.
For your Kindle ebook version, use size 5.39″ width by 7.91″ Height, – make sure you set it to inches(“). This is the standard formatting size I use for my kindle ebooks. And for the paperback version, I use 6 by 9 inches. Also, the detailed processes of writing and formatting your book to the Amazon KDP standard are contained inside my Kindle-Pub Millionaire’s Secrets.
How To Upload Your Book On The KDP Platform To Make Money Online In Nigeria
Finally, to upload your formatted document to the KDP platform as an ebook so that your potential readers can begin to consume your book contents like a hot cake, while also dipping their hands into their wallet to purchase your book, you will have to log in to your Amazon KDP account. See the screenshot below.
Once you’re on their platform you can click on the “plus sign” on your KDP dashboard as shown on the image above, to either add your kindle ebook version or the Paperback version.
Provide your book title, subtitle, author’s name, fill in the keywords you will want your book to rank for, (keywords simply mean the words that your customers will type into the Amazon search bar to locate your book. – For example Diabetes Treatment in Ayurveda for women).
Also, select categories that are related to your topic, for example, the Health and Fitness category, and Cookbook category will be a perfect choice for this example. Make sure to fill in the price you want your book to be sold, the countries (choose worldwide), click save and continue.
On the final page, preview your book to see how beautiful it would look when it’s published on Amazon, and Hit the Publish-Button. Oh, la la! You’ve just made it, you’ve launched yourself into the world of passive income earners through the Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing Platform.
