Choosing The Most Profitable Subject For Your Ebook
Choosing a subject for your first (or tenth) ebook is the biggest factor in determining the success or failure of your project. An ebook that is well written, provides great information, and is perfectly formatted will generate few sales if the subject matter is of little or no interest to buyers.
For that reason, it is absolutely imperative that you write ebooks that have wide mass-market appeal. Many experts advise you to write about subjects that interest you. This advice will result in poor ebook sales almost every time. You have to write ebooks on subjects that OTHERS are interested in. That is the way to generate consistent, profitable results.
To find profitable subjects, visit the larger forums like Warrior Forum and Digital Point. Look for posts that have huge numbers of page views and replies. These are the subjects that people are interested in. Take notes and learn. After you have isolated four or five potential subjects, do a search on these potential subjects. Make sure you find a number of similar products that are being offered for sale.
Start out by visiting the sales pages of these competing products. Check their Alexa ranking. The lower the Alexa ranking, the more popular the site. If all of the sites have Alexa ratings in excess of 5 million, you may want to find another subject. Next check their Google Page Rank. This system ranks sites from 0 to 10. The larger the number, the more popular the site. Look for Page Ranks in excess of 3 or 4. This is usually an indication that the page is getting good traffic numbers.
Once you have isolated a good subject, you should begin to assemble your research for your ebook. Make sure you provide comprehensive step-by-step information in your ebook. Instead of saying, “use an FTP program to upload files to your website,” tell them exactly how to use an FTP program. Give them detailed instructions on how to use it every step of the way. Provide links and let them know where they can get the software free if free versions are available. This is the type of ebook that will become a best seller. Never skimp on the information that you provide your readers.
By following the techniques above, you can write best selling ebooks over and over. Who knows, with your new ebook writing skills, you may become the next millionaire Guru.
