A popular topic in this business is choosing a niche. I see it a lot in my group: you want to know how to choose a low content niche and get book sales.
One of the quickest routes to frustration is to pick a low content book niche that doesn’t have the potential to bring in the profits you’re looking for. You don’t want to waste time creating books with love and care, only for them to sit “gathering dust” with no sales to speak of.
The way to discover which niche has the ability to make money is easy.
You have to do your research.
First, you’re going to want to select a niche that you’re personally interested in – even if it’s one that you don’t know a lot about. You can always learn what you need to know, but if the niche is too technical or you consider it boring, you’re going to be as happy working on it as you would be getting a tooth pulled.
Choose a niche that not only interests you, but one that you feel excited about working on. That way, you’ll stay pumped up and eagerly look forward to creating books that will grow your business.
To find a niche that’ll bring in the kind of money you’re after, seek out what people are searching for.
What are the bestsellers? You don’t have to know this off the top of your head. Look directly on Amazon!
The “bestsellers” will put your finger on the pulse of what’s selling.
So for example, if you see that on Amazon, a low content book sells well enough to be in the top 100, you know it’s something worth looking into.
You could easily research the broader niche, but you also want to think of ways you could narrow the niche and target a less competitive variation of the niche. (By the way, I do this exact thing in my puzzle book bonus training!)
Look at topics that touch on people’s pain and ones that provide solutions to problems.
Books on depression, weight loss, and relationships always sell well and that’s a clue to let you know that the market is and always will be wide open for self help niches and the products that you can buy dealing with that subject. Products like trackers, notebooks, workbooks, and journals!
You can even profit from a niche based on what’s considered a “here today, gone tomorrow” topic.
Like a popular diet – these tend to come and go, but you can create companion books NOW for diets – or other trends – people are interested in right now.
Ultimately, you want to seek out a niche that has long term potential so that your business will thrive now and for many years to come. But don’t turn your back on the profit potential for a niche that’s only popular for the short-term.
