As I promised yesterday, I’m back today to share some fun stuff. As I previously mentioned, I spent a lot of my weekend working through courses and training that I have recently purchased.
One course I mentioned yesterday had to do with Pinterest to increase exposure for your business. You can learn more about that here. Here are two important stats that should get your attention, if you haven’t implemented Pinterest to your overall marketing efforts yet:
But I’m not here to talk about Pinterest today. I did that yesterday. 🙂
Today, I want to talk about creating and/or using low-content books. Low-content books include things like journals, planners, and calendars. I honestly did not understand the craze with low-content books until recently. Keep reading, if you don’t really understand how you can profit from them.
Let me explain. A sleep journal, like my friend Sue sells commercial rights (PLR) to, would be one example of a low-content book.
You can find low-content books being sold everywhere online – Amazon, Etsy, and personal Shopify sites.
So how do you profit from low-content books?
(1.) One angle is to make and sell them on the platforms I just mentioned – Amazon, Etsy, etc.
(2.) The other angle – if you don’t want to list and sell them on places like Amazon, Etsy, etc. – is to provide or sell them to your existing or prospective customer base. A journal or planner, for example, is a nice addition to an eBook on a related topic. You can also use a journal or a planner as a fabulous opt-in on a squeeze page or on your website. If I wanted to combine the power of Pinterest, I could create a graphic for Pinterest and pin it there, inviting people to visit my site to sign up and get a free journal or planner there. Then make sure you have a one-time offer to purchase something else. If you are a coach doing a live webinar or training seminar in person, journals are also a good idea to incorporate. You can include the price of producing them in the cost of your training, if you want. I think you get the idea….just be creative.
People that offer PLR rights to their low-content books can help you speed up your creation of one of these books.
Now, you may be wondering where you can learn more about exploring or doing this. That is what I’m about to tell you now. 🙂
I came across another great course last week that I bought, and I have been going through. It is well-organized. You get the content delivered to you in digital format, plus you also get some training videos that are brief and cut to the chase. She also provides you with templates.
So if you want to learn how to create your own low-content books, and then publish them to Amazon KDP, this is the course for you. She shows how easy and fast it is to produce a 100-page low-content book by copying and pasting. She doesn’t even focus on making the inside of the books pretty. You can do that once you have some proven sellers, but it’s not necessary! That is the beauty of her system, and it will teach you not only how to create the planners and journals to sell, but also how to list them for sale to get maximum exposure.
Again, here is the link.
If you would rather buy the PLR rights to pretty low-content books so that you don’t have to worry about making them from scratch, and then sell them, then there are a number of low-content book producers that can help you with this. They include:
a. Sue, as I’ve mentioned above.
b. Lynette, She has just released a brand new, Finish Strong Marketing Planner, and it is beautiful.

The only thing that I would warn you about, is that if you plan to sell a PLR item on Amazon KDP, make sure you change the PLR product up A LOT. I’m not sure if they have a way to monitor for similar designs, but in case they do, I’d be cautious.
Amazon KDP definitely does not allow unchanged written PLR content on it. I know that from personal experience. I received the Amazon slap years ago for doing that! I actually lost my account for over three months, and it took a lot of effort and apologizing to get it back.
If you are using written PLR to create items for Amazon KDP, you need to change it by writing it in your own words, in different order, and by adding in a lot of your own ideas and opinions. It cannot be recognizable as PLR.
I hope this email opens your eyes to the different ways that you can incorporate the use of journals and planners in your business. And if you want to learn how to make them for Amazon KDP, I’ve provided you with an awesome course listed above to help you get started.
