Make Money Online 2022 Selling Books on Amazon Without Writing Anything Using Kdp

I heard KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing by Amazon) just two months back.
I decided to give it a try and publish five books all blank journals(“low” Or “no” content books) the first month I sold nothing. And I thought this was not for me.

After one month, I rechecked my account, and bingo sold my two books with $2.00 per book sold lol.

And below result after publishing 32 books.

Besides, it provides you a distribution to Amazon’s huge shopper base!
In simple its print on demand books through the KDP program.

Expand Your Book Business To Etsy!

Selling on KDP is great, but are you selling your business assets (all aspects of your book), anywhere else?

If not, you are leaving a TON of money on the table!

Think about it like this. You run a KDP business, right? What are the assets inside your business?

Well, there are a few! First, you have you and your time (this is harder to sell to other people). Second, and most importantly, you have the works that you create to make your book: covers and interiors.

So how can you possibly expand? There are not very many Print on Demand marketplaces for books you may say.


Sell your interiors as digital downloads on Etsy!

Etsy has been on FIRE over the last year seeing almost exponential growth and it’s time that you take the leap and START or GROW an Etsy shop!

Starting from scratch can seem a bit daunting since this is a new way to sell Books (interiors), but the opportunities are endless.

Etsy has been on FIRE over the last year seeing almost exponential growth and it’s time that you take the leap and START or GROW an Etsy shop!

Starting from scratch can seem a bit daunting since this is a new way to sell Books (interiors), but the opportunities are endless. Don’t believe us?

  • Etsy buyers are NOT very price sensitive (meaning you can price your interiors 5-10X what you would normally make as a royalty for your book on Amazon).
  • Etsy shops do NOT need mass quantities of listings to create a full-time income.

Over the past year, the creators of Book Bolt have been working with multiple 6 figure Etsy sellers to create software dedicated to opening up a new stream of income for your business.

Last month, that Etsy software was launched and is called Sale Samurai.

Inside, you will find:

  • Long-Tail Keywords
  • Etsy Keyword Search Volume
  • Etsy tags, price spread, competition grades
  • Competition Trackers (looking at successful shops)
  • Chrome Plugin to research directly ON Etsy
  • Automation (upload automation from Print providers such as Printful, Gooten, and Printify)


If you already have a KDP business and are making sales, offering up your unique interiors for an amazing profit on Etsy is the next logical step. You are NOT selling your covers (which make your products most unique), but taking advantage of the fact that Etsy is HOT and everyone is looking for new interiors!

If you want to jump on Etsy before everyone ends up doing it, NOW is when you want to do it.
