|How To Determine The Best Topic
For An Ebook
There are virtually no limitations, no boundaries when it comes to ebook subject matter assuming you don't choose a topic that only half a dozen people on the entire planet would find interesting. Where to find the best information products to sell? Adorning the shelves of any bookstore or library near your place, there is a vast array of literary choices, simply because the general public demands it.
The truth is, when it comes to choosing a topic for an ebook, it's not a question of what's best, but rather...
What exactly do readers want?
As it turns out, the answer is quite simple. Readers want anything and everything. And when you consider there are countless Internet consumers to draw from, the choice regarding suitable subject matter remains countless as well. Granted, not all consumers are shopping for ebooks, but even so, the odds are very much in your favor.
Of course, one has to assume that you're expecting your ebook to generate a good deal of income. Great plan. But don't just limit your thinking to topics you ASSUME will generate income. There's honestly no way to pre-determine exactly what type of subject matter will accomplish financial gain.
So let's discuss the possibilities.
As you surf the world wide Web, you'll discover unlimited numbers of ebooks geared exclusively toward Internet Marketing. How it should be done... what, where, who, when. That's fine. There's no doubt it's a popular and oftentimes profitable niche. But it's certainly not the only one.
And when you think about it, those who are involved in Internet marketing constitute a very small portion of the online population as a whole. What about all the other areas that Internet users are interested in?
If you analyze the most popular keyword searches on a weekly or even monthly basis, you'll find that few (if any) of them relate to topics that are even remotely associated with Internet marketing in general.
So before you go jumping on the same bandwagon as everyone else, consider the *average* reader...
The majority are still purchasing ebooks the same way they would a tangible book. They're not seeking to make their fortune via the Internet. They merely wish to be entertained, informed, and enlightened.
Adorning the shelves of any bookstore or library is a vast array of literary choices, simply because the general public demands it. And that means there are virtually no limitations, no boundaries when it comes to ebook subject matter (assuming you don't choose a topic that only half a dozen people on the entire planet would find interesting).
Have you experienced some life-changing event that would help or enlighten a vast number of individuals in a similar situation? Have you accumulated household cleaning tips over the years that others would find useful? Is there a particular hobby or craft you've turned into a money-making opportunity?
Maybe you're an eBay seller who can explain to other members how to gain the most benefit from participating in online auctions. Or maybe you know of a proven method to get out of paying traffic tickets (although it's already been done successfully, you might be able to improve on the subject).
The fact is, just because you happen to be a stay-at-home mom, a construction worker, or a typical college student doesn't mean you don't have some valuable information to pass along.
As a professional writer, I've had occasion to create ebooks on all sorts of diverse topics... from ancient Japanese healing to real estate investment secrets. And while some people might find those particular topics of little interest, my job was to create content that was in fact appealing to certain readers or consumers.
Naturally, I can't tell you what topic you should write about. That's something only you can decide. What I can advise, though, is that you familiarize yourself with publications that already exist on whatever subject matter you happen to be considering.
Think about how you can improve what's been written thus far. Is there a particular area that you feel no one has yet handled with adequate detail? Can you improve on areas of a topic that is currently popular or wide spread? Is there a certain twist or angle that doesn't even exist yet?
It's not necessarily about coming up with some unique or never-been-done-before topic. It's about creating an ebook that includes your particular slant or *special* touch.
And most importantly, it's about releasing a product that provides readers with something useful, something valuable, something worth spending their hard-earned money on. Period.
