Listing Details

This listing is for an Amazon KDP business created in May 2015 in the romance niche. Included in the sale are 153 KDP books and 15 audiobooks across 4 pen names/brands, covering topics related to romance. The top-selling books have a 4.5-star average rating across 500-1000 reviews, and business revenue is evenly spread out over several top sellers.

This business generates 99% of its revenue from KDP and 1% from ACX. All books are written by ghostwriters and 2-3 books are added per month. The 8 top selling books produce ~58% of total business revenue.

The Seller spends an average of 12 hours per week on the business primarily on researching markets, formatting books, promoting book launches and planning for new launches. The Seller also manages and delegates tasks to outsourced contractors which include writers, designers, personal assistants, a PPC manager, and a specialist who runs the "Book Promotion Network". All contacts to the ghost writers are included in the sale.

Included with this business are 6 Facebook pages with 5000+ followers collectively, and 11 email lists with 45,000+ subscribers collectively.

Opportunities for growth include adding books under the current pen names/brands, repurposing all books into audiobooks and paperback books, growing and further monetizing the email lists, increasing the number of flash sales and promotions, and expanding into the German market. The Seller has also recently built out a new pen name/brand under the account and launched it in November 2021. The Seller believes this brand has a lot of opportunity for growth.

*The account was temporarily suspended for 24 hours in February 2016 due to content/formatting issues. The issues were fixed immediately and the account has had no issues since.
