Have you been wanting to come out of your writing shell and do what most writers now – ebook writing? You have more options because you won’t be limited to connecting your ebook to productions sales or something business-related. Remember, though, that your product will be an ebook, so you’ll have to find topics that sell.
First things first: you’ll need to think of a topic that you are passionate about – your forte. It can be anything from DIY, romance, or self-help. You are your writer, so you can be as versatile as you can be. However, you’ll want to dampen your artistic abilities a little, as you also would like to choose a niche that will not only allow you to be creative but also to guarantee you maximum returns and sales.
Factual Or Fictional?
This is the first question you’ll want to answer before releasing those artistic juices. Knowing what category you want to go into could give you more ideas on what topic to write about and what kind of audience you’ll target. If you find it hard to choose, spend time evaluating your skills. You most probably know what kinds of topics you usually want to write about, so trust your choices. When you’ve finally decided between these two major genres, go into the minor ones. Choose the best topics and topics that are on top of the list of most written niches of all time.
This is perhaps one of the breeziest niches to go into, and yet this can also be one of the least profitable. An excellent romantic plot is difficult to write about and finish. It’s probably something that a more experienced writer can nail. For novice writers, it would be safer to stick to a different niche, although it can also be one of the best niches for ebooks. When you’ve written two or three niches, you can try taking on this topic. If you can pull off something like Fifty Shades of Grey, then both hands raised for you here!
Kids and adults alike love to be scared, which is why this topic is among the most lucrative. There’s a large request for horror ebooks but a very short supply of these. Stephen King And Ann Rice did very well – in fact, they’re bestsellers. They can be your inspiration in writing your horror ebook.
J.K. Rowling is at the top of the list for the best fantasy writers in the world. She and the rest of the gang – Tolkien, Suzanne Collins, and George Martin – had a rich resource of imagery, color, and fantasy worlds that they so effectively create into the real-world for kids and even for adults. We know these worlds do not exist, but the way they described them makes us dream of these worlds as part of our own.
Fantasy is one of the most taxing niches to write in, as it is one of the best topics, and yes, the writing world is full of fantasy writers. But if you keep your storyline strong and colorful, you’ll end up in the bestseller section.
We owe it to YouTube for making DIY videos and ebooks tremendously popular these days, and it’s going to be around for a long time. DIY ebooks range from cookbooks to home cleaning, down to gardening, and crafting. People love reading about them because they’re close to the hearts of housewives, stay-at-home moms, and even college students who are looking to improve their lives cheaply and conveniently. DIY has also proven to be very effective in marketing products to families and other potential targets.
There are many more classifications aside from those mentioned above, but these are the most popular ones and the easiest to focus on. Once you’ve figured out what kind of writer you want to be, you can go ahead and write your heart away!
