Now that Amazon doesn’t allow the ‘Look Inside’ feature for new low-content uploads, you may want to add extra content yourself. It’s more work, but you can add extra images and text using their templates. Here’s how it’s done.

Start by clicking the ‘Marketing’ link at the top of your KDP dashboard. On the next page, scroll down to the A+ Content section and choose your marketplace:

KDP A+ Content

You will need to add the content for each marketplace you want it to show up, as well as for any hardback/softcover editions.

On the next page, click ‘Start creating A+ content’:

Create A+ content

Give it an easily identifiable name and begin adding your modules:

A+ add modules

Choose the one(s) you want to use and make sure you have an image of the correct size already created. Adding any text appears to be optional:

A+ module content

A+ module content 2

Keep adding more modules if you want:

Click ‘Next: Apply ASINs’:

Apply ASINs

Select ASIN

A+ finish

And that’s it. It does take a while, but at least you can control what you want potential customers to see. It’s great for showcasing your book interiors for content other than plain notebooks.
