Why Sell Journals and Notebooks on Amazon?

Journals and notebooks are in high demand on Amazon, and they can be a great source of income. In fact, last month alone, I earned over $4,000 in royalties from the sale of my journals and notebooks on Amazon. Journals and notebooks are great if you want to create a personalized journal that you can purchase and give away as gifts to friends and family. They are also great if you run a club or have your own business, as you can create journals and notebooks for your customers and participants to buy.

Who is This Video For?

This video is for those who are just starting out and are wanting to create their own business. It’s also useful for those who have already tried this process but have come across some hurdles and have not managed to quite get there. If you’ve already published quite a few journals, you know 100 journals or so, and you’re familiar with the process, this video might not be for you, unless you want to pick up some tips and tricks which I’ll go through during the video.

Creating the Cover

The first step in creating your own journal or notebook is to create the cover. You can do this for free at canva.com, which is a free web-based software platform where you can design the cover. Once you’ve signed up, click on custom size and put in the width and height of your cover. The book cover is basically going to be rectangular in shape and it’s going to include the space for the back cover, space for the front cover, and the bit down the middle which is the spine. The size is going to be dependent on two factors: the size of the notebook and the number of pages. This notebook is going to be 6 by 9 inches, which is a common size for a small pocket type notebook, and it’s going to be 120 pages. Once you’ve created your cover, download it to your computer as a PDF file.

Getting the Interior for the Notebook

The next step is to get the interior for your notebook. You can do this for free by going to my gumroad shop and downloading the lined paper option. Once you’ve downloaded it, upload it to the Amazon KDP platform.

Uploading to the Amazon KDP Platform

The final step is to upload your cover and interior to the Amazon KDP platform. Once you’ve signed up, click on bookshelf and then click on add paperback. Fill out all the necessary information, including the title, subtitle, author name, and description. Upload your cover and interior, and then click on publish your paperback book. Congratulations, you’re now a published author!

Pricing Your Notebook

When it comes to pricing your notebook, most notebooks and journals are priced at around the $6.99 mark. However, you should do some research and look at other books similar to the one you’ve created to see what their prices are. You want to pick something around the average of all those different prices.

Tips and Tricks for Selling Your Notebook

To sell your notebook successfully, you need to make sure it stands out from the competition. One way to do this is to create a unique cover that catches the eye. You can also use keywords to help your notebook get found when someone types in the Amazon search bar. Finally, make sure you promote your notebook on social media and other platforms to get the word out.
