In my opinion, not having professional-level skills and not using the right methods are two major reasons why people are not making money by working from home. A lot of people are using sites article sites and paid-to-post sites to make money from writing, however, these platforms have limitations on earning and people cannot earn well. If they are trying to earn by writing, why don't they try something better, for instance, freelance writing, ebook writing, etc? However, they are not attempting other lucrative options because they are general writers, they cannot churn professional-quality written works. In other words, these people do not have the skills to do SEO writing or technical writing, or copywriting, they are not even very proficient writers. Writing can make you money, but you need to identify what kind of writing will make you more money and what platform offers better writing jobs.
Kindle Direct Publishing is a free publishing platform on Amazon. You can publish ebooks or print books. You might have to spend weeks, even months to write a book or ebook, but you can sell the same book and ebook again and again. There are a lot of free blook publishing platforms like KDP.
eBooks are one of the best ways to make passive income. You create an ebook once, but you will continue to earn from your ebooks for a very long time. However, the key to earning from ebooks is to sell a lot of ebooks. So, how do you do it?
Publish an ebook on KDP. I suggest KDP because you can earn up to 70 percent royalties if you price your ebook at $2.99 and more.
Amazon offers an advertising program to drive sales. If you have money, use this method. When you run ads, your ebooks will appear on numerous places on Amazon, which will increase the likelihood of sales.
You can also use Facebook ads, Facebook ads are cheaper and the conversion is better.
If you do not want to spend money on ads, make short videos about your ebook content and post on video ob Youtube shorts, TikTok, Reels, etc. People interested in your videos might end up buying your ebooks.
The packaging of the product is as important as the product itself. Therefore, if you are trying to sell ebooks and make money, you will have to consider the aesthetic value of your ebook. The ebook cover and internal cover design will help you generate sales.
You can design ebook covers and inner pages through Canva.
Search for ebook on Canva and you will come across ebook covers as well as ebook templates with multiple pages. If you are looking for designing covers, you can choose a cover template and start customizing it. If you are looking to build internal pages for your ebook, choose ebook templates with multiple pages. You can filter your search by choosing an A4 document. These templates are aesthetically pleasing, you do not have to go back to design, you can just start customizing, such as adding your own text, images, etc. Interestingly, these templates come with covers, therefore, you do not have to create a cover for your ebook.
You can sell almost anything on Fiverr. Here I am going to teach you how to sell ebook services on Fiverr.
Writing is one of the most in-demand services on freelancer sites including Fiverr.
First of all, create a profile on Fiverr. Make sure to provide every detail about you and your services.
Now, go to Canva and search for ebook templates. Create a demo ebook by customizing the template (adding your own texts, graphics, and images). Download the ebook.

Technically speaking, you can earn $100 per day on KDP. I will show you how. Publish an ebook on Amazon KDP. KDP gives you 70 percent royalty and you will earn $7 per book if you priced $10. If you sell 15 books every day, you will earn $105 per day. This is easy and does not require investment. This is in theory, though. Trust me, earning from Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing or KDP, in short, is not easy. You may sell 1-2 books and earn $1-$2, but you can't call it a good passive income. You should be earning at least $50-$100 per month in order for KDP to become your good passive income source. Generating book sales is really hard. If you have money, you can run ads.
