SNM153: Find the Perfect Topic to Write About

Your time is extremely valuable. Every minute you spend writing should be as profitable as possible.  Don't waste time writing on the wrong topic.  You can give your audience EXACTLY what they want.

There are No Secrets

People want to read books that get them excited.

They want to read blog posts that solve their problems.

If you ask people what they want, they are going to tell you.

In the past, we had to guess what people wanted and hope that we guess write, but now writing is no longer a form of gambling.

You can turn risky bets into sure things.

All is Revealed on Amazon

Every single product on Amazon is organized, categorized, and ranked.

You can look at any category to see how popular the products are.

Amazon was built around books and their book data is second to none.

With a little math, you can look at any book on their platform and estimate their sales numbers for the day.

Amazon is constantly changing categories around to match what the market wants.

Trends come and go all the time, but they are slower in books.

An idea starts out hot, a few books follow it and a new category is born.

You can get in on the ground floor, even a few months after the birth of that new category.

You are Not Selling Out

Writing is a profession.

It's a job.

It is a way to make a living and support your family.

There are hundreds of amazing niches desperate for new books and fresh content right now.

You don't have to choose just ONE category, there are loads of amazing topics to choose from and platforms to earn from your writing.

Just find the one that gets you the most excited!
