One of the most challenging parts of becoming an information marketer or creating your first ebook is coming up with your ebook’s topic.
In truth, it’s actually not all that tricky. Here are a few tips to help you find the perfect book topic.
Tip #1 Brainstorm
Before heading to keyword research sites, start by brainstorming ideas that you’re passionate and/or knowledgeable about. Here’s some brainstorming tools to check out.
It’s so much easier to write a book about a topic you truly care about. Not only that, it’ll likely be a better book because your enthusiasm will carry through into your content.
Consider making a list of ten or so topics you are interested in and/or knowledgeable about. Once you have that list, break it down into potential book topics.
If you’re writing a book to compliment a website you have in a particular niche focus on that niche but brainstorm potential sub-niche topics for the book.
Tip #2 Look to solve a problem.
For example, maybe you love to exercise and talk about anything related to fitness and health.
Great! That’s the foundation for your topic. Now you have to dig deeper and solve a problem people are challenged with as it relates to fitness and health. Maybe nutrition guidelines for the beginning tri-athlete or how to fuel your body for more energy.
And the more specific the problem the easier it is to find a market and to sell your book.
The expression marketers use is “one shot, one kill” which means that a information product will be highly successful when it delivers a single, highly focused solution to one problem (only).
Tip #3 Use the media for inspiration.
Visit Amazon, ClickBank and other booksellers to see what’s selling well. This may provide you with inspiration or help you stay away from an oversaturated market.
Once you have a few potential book topics then you can hit the keyword research tools to analyze supply and demand.
