You’ll still have to bang the drum and be creative with marketing, but the groundwork must be done.
Did you know that there are professional tools out there that will help you research your next book so it’s hitting a lucrative spot in the market. How do they do this?
These online market research tools actually want authors to find the hottest-paying markets. K-lytics has these labels like Hot Cells and Hot Niches. If you see these analytical reports, it’s like going into a gold mine and trying to find where the gold is lying.
The great thing about Dave Chesson (founder of Kindlepreneur and fiction author) is he doesn’t stop researching just because he found some success.
In fact, he learnt so much from his experiments in Amazon research and keywords, he decided to build his own product for book research! More about his powerful tool soon. Plenty of people have asked me if I could determine hot selling categories and keywords. Like others, I could guess, but nothing beats the sheer data-crunching power like a software custom-built for Amazon research.
Like Dave says, if you find that the three books already ranking at the top of a particular keyword search on Amazon DON’T make any money, or comparatively less than others, then not many people search for it (or search and don’t buy) and it is therefore not worth choosing as a keyword. To do this properly, you have to use the bestseller rank calculator and put in the ‘three top book’ Amazon sales rank into Dave’s free KBS calculator tool. Hey, wait one minute though before you go and read his blog… (and remember, he’s already quite well-off)…

Make Sure You Deliver on Your Book’s Propositions
When you research in your zone and find a hot niche, don’t forget that the most important thing is… your book must deliver! With Amazon Kindle or with your own website, you can’t game the system; you must have the goods.
Another part of this is: a good sale sign. You can’t sell a house without a for sale sign. Your blurb is where you sell the book. So never rush writing the blurb. Having trouble?
The more you know your reader, the better your book thesis will be.
If you don’t know your reader, writing your initial synopsis will be a struggle, and then it will be hard to sell your book much later on.
So try picking out a niche. A niche product has a set of benefits and a clear message that resonates with its tribe.
The more specific and narrow the niche is, the more likely that your book can fill it nicely and then start to own this niche.
