Published by Robin Esson on

Are you struggling with getting sales and you are not sure if you are making books in the right niche? Do you find it hard to come up with different low content book ideas for Amazon KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing)? Here are the 50 best low content book ideas to make money in 2022.

Each of these low content books sell hundreds of copies each month and are making loads of money!

So if you are not familiar with what kind of books to make, this is the complete list for you!

What Is a Low Content Book?

Unicorns are one of many great Low Content Book Ideas

When you deep dive into the world of low content book making you will come across a few different terms like no content books, low content books and medium content books.

So what are all these terms and how are they important to you?

A no content book has zero content and are only blank pages similar to the ones you find in sketch books. A low content book has minimal content on their interior pages. Common examples of low content books are notebooks, journals and planners.

Medium content books on the other hand are books with more content like recipe books, trackers, workout journals or coloring books. These books usually contain more graphics and activate the user more inside of the book.
It is important to decide what kind of books you want to make because they demand some skills in making templates or getting premade ones from various sites like Book Bolt for example.

So you might wonder what kind of different types of low content books there that you can make and earn money on? Let’s start from the fact that you recently started out and just made an KDP account. 

There actually are a lot of different kinds of low content books on Amazon and the easiest way for me to tell you about them is if we put them into categories to get a feeling about the different ones we can publish in.

This list is no way perfect but it’s detailed and I think I’m covering at least 90% of all the low content book categories out there so it should give us an idea about what category we want to look into and potentially publish our own low content books in. 

Maybe you have seen a lot of these books already when you looked for low content books ideas on Amazon but never thought about the different categories they belong to?

50 Best Low Content Book Ideas in 2022

When creating low content books there is always the question if you are making the right book for the right niche. Or am I making a book for a niche that doesn’t even exist?
When making low content books you have to see where the buyers put their money and where you should focus your efforts to gain some of the cash put into that niche.

So how do you do that? 

You look through all the niches that are the most popular like the list I am going to show you and you look for the best selling books in each niche. Secondly you take the information you gained from each niche to see if you can find a sub niche that still got a decent amount of searches and buys each month and you niche into that making low content books for that category.

So after a while you will find a niche that is not saturated.

For example, I was making a lot of diaries for people who wanted to handle anxiety and stress. But in the end I switched to making math notebooks for kids because that is where I was most successful. 

Making books for Amazon KDP might not be easy but it is free and when you succeed it is money right down in the pocket. It’s a great way to earn passive income and if you stick to it and learn you will earn money over time.

Here is my list with the different kinds of low content book niches there are and the sub niches that you can specialize in.

Let’s look at all of the different categories I told you about in the beginning and let’s list the best selling books in each one.

I will use Book Bolt Bolt to look for the best selling low content books in each category below and use as examples to show you what it takes to be number one and how much your book could potentially earn you.But remember these books are the best sellers in each category on Amazon KDP so the competition will be hard, really hard but a great indicator.

Low Content Book Ideas

Low Content Books On Amazon

When you look through the books I have listed in this post you can see that I have listed them under a niche. But if you look at the book cover and title you can see what sub niche they are posted in.

For example the first book I wrote about is a Notebook right. But if you look closely you will see both in the picture and title that the book is actually a Graph Paper Notebook most commonly used as a math book. So there we have a sub niche that is really popular.

This shows me that a lot of people are going to amazon to buy books for school and in this case a math book. So now you could deep dive and look for different math book categories and make a few books for that category.

Once you decide on the category you want to dive into, try to find the sub niche and use the optimal keywords for that niche.

If you feel that it’s too hard to make the covers or interiors I want to recommend going to Fiverr and get help with the covers and keyword research for Amazon KDP. 

But if you are like me and only struggle with keywords and find low competition niches I would recommend Book Bolt. I have written a review about it here: Is Book Bolt Worth It?
