You’ve just come up with a fabulous idea for a low content book, and you’re rearing to go!

Hang on!


Before you spend hours creating a book, you want to make sure it is worth your time and that your book will have an excellent chance of being a good seller.

I’m not saying it has to be a BEST seller, but you definitely want to give it the best chance possible to make consistent sales. One way to ensure this is to do proper niche research.

It can be time-consuming, but if you want to build a passive income, it is a critical part of your overall business that you can’t neglect!

Finding profitable niches is the first step to getting your book sold on KDP.

As luck would have it, niche research and keyword research are closely related.  This means you should start doing your niche research with that in mind.  Keep track of all your research, using spreadsheets in a dedicated folder. So, by the time you’re ready to publish your book, you’ll have the best and most profitable keywords to use.  Talk about two birds with one stone.


Think of it like this.  Say you’re trying to sell T-shirts with quotes about your favorite sports team.

If you sell them right outside the stadium, on the day the team is playing, you have a good chance of making sales, because the people who go to watch the game are passionate about the team and willing to pay for your merchandise.  But if you try to sell them a random T-shirt about something they have no interest in, chances are you’ll make little to no sales.

The same goes for your books.  If people are interested in the topic and actively buying the type of books that you want to create, you have found a profitable niche.

Also…  you want to find a profitable niche that is not too competitive.

There are various ways to start looking for profitable niches, but first you should have an idea of what you’re looking for.

There are two types of niches: evergreen and seasonal.

With an evergreen niche, there is a constant demand throughout the year, and people search for books in these niches all the time.

An example of an evergreen niche is baby journals.

As the name indicates, seasonal niches are tied to specific dates and events, and buyers usually search for books to buy around those times.

An example of seasonal niches are Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas activity and coloring books. These books sell very well for a short period of time, typically from October to December. It’s definitely worth creating books for all the seasonal niches.

Pro tip: Activity books in an evergreen niche, whether for kids or adults, tend to sell well all year round.

Activity books include sudoku puzzles, word search puzzles, mazes, and so on. They are challenging to create when you’re just starting out, but fortunately there are many people who supply DFY materials. These materials can be used to create unique books without having to do everything from scratch.   There are also plenty tools available online to help you create these books.

If you’re looking for a constant income relatively quickly, it’s best to start out publishing books in a few profitable, evergreen niches. Once you have that set up and see sales coming in, you can then create books for seasonal niches. The beauty here is that once you’ve created your book, and it is live on Amazon KDP, you don’t have to worry about it again.

How to do Niche Research?

How to do niche research

Step 1

Do a brain dump and think about the things that you like. You can also write down your
hobbies and interests.

By doing this, you’ll already have an idea of the type of content that you can create! Why?

Because you can use your own experiences to think about what you would personally like to
see in a low-content book.

For example, if you love fishing, you can think about what kind of journals, planners,
notebooks, or logbooks would appeal to you. What kind of content would be useful to you?

Step 2

Think of general interest things such as sports, health & well-being, family etc. You can
start with a broad niche and then niche down even further.

The idea is to find a sub-niche where there is enough demand for your book to make sales
but you also have far less competition. This makes it easier to rank high and sell your book!

Step 3

Once you come up with your niche idea, you can combine it with a specific type of book. If
you decide on fishing as your niche, you can start your research in that niche with
something like a fishing logbook.
