Hi,
without any introduction, I'm planning to get 100$ a day by publishing books on Amazon, this is my strategy :

Publishing low content books :
I've already published some ( notebook, logbook, and coloring book), seems that coloring books sell better than the others: so I've decided to publish more and more. HOW? Using automation, I've found a software called Kindle Prime it helps you to automate the process (cheaper than Merchtitant), I've also found a trick on how to generate different coloring pages for my books using photoshop and a VBA code.
So I'm planning to publish +20 coloring book each day

Publishing content books/ebooks :
I've already published my first book, I paid a person to write it for me, it took him about 30 days, 10k words, medium quality, I'm running ads for this book.
I'm planning to get more books written and run ads

Small comparison between content and coloring books :
coloring books: easy to make, fast (using automation), high competition, low earning about 1$ per sale
content books: you have to pay your writer, take time, low competition, high earning 3 to 5$ per sale, need to run ads to see fast results


TOOLS that I'm using :
*My medium photoshop skills;
*My medium excel VBA skills;
*Helium 10
*Kindle prime
*Kindle create
*AMS

I have a 9 to 4 job, so I have about 3 hours daily and weekends, I've deactivated my Facebook/Instagram accounts to focus more on this journey

Stats :
1 content book/ebook
5 low content book
16 coloring book in review to be published

Earning:
1621710805548.png
This month 35.85 $
34.33$ from the content book
1.52$ coloring book

Lose:
1621710900146.png
This month about 24 $
20.02 € using euro because I'm promoting my book in a European country
(I will not count helium10 subscription (10$ in a group buy), Kindle prime (5 $ first month), and the book writing cost (20 $ :anyway:)

What I have to do :
* Stop being LAZY!
* Search for coloring book niche => launch automation to generate books ==> launch automation to publish the books.
* Search niches for content books ==> search for a person to write it for a good price ==> format the book for both paperback and kindle ==> publish it manually ==> launch ads


Problems that I'm facing:
* Laziness :poop:
* Upload time, each coloring is about 100Mo and I have a shitty Internet, I share my phone connection to upload the books, and can't do that each time since I plan to let the automation running by night or when I am at work.



I Skipped a lot of details, feel free to ask, will update this thread once a week, wish me luck:)!

Yes! he was a broke student that's why he accepted to work with that price, he told me that he's doing it to show me his writing skills, now he's asking 10$ for each 100 word, which is x100 the initial price, I will just search for someone else to write...

Why don't you just stick with the kid? He obviously needs the money.
