Something I’ve been interested in recently is digital products because they’re such a great way for stay-at-home parents to make a passive income. Well my guests, Sue and Manny Irven, are considered the experts in getting digital products into the marketplace through Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP). They’re here to tell you all about how to get started and help you sell!

In July 2020, Sue and Manny had both gotten laid off when they decided to start their online business. Through trial and error, they realized that Amazon KDP was the best and easiest way to make a passive income online. Now they’re making up to $17K a month by self-publishing digital products, specializing in 'low-content books' like journals and notebooks.

In this episode, we talk about…..

  • Getting started with Amazon KDP.
  • Choosing which products to sell.
  • The creative design process.
  • High-content books vs low-content books.
  • Using SEO in your marketing strategy.
  • Profit margins for selling through Amazon KDP.
