Where You Can Find Even More Kindle Book Niches…

I love to always brainstorm and get  ideas on topics that I can publish Kindle books on.  There’s a few websites and resources that I use to compile a list…

  • Amazon.com – Check out the Kindle store on Amazon.com and you’ll see all of the categories that Amazon has, and with some digging you can easily see what other Kindle books are out there and get ideas for your own Kindle books.
  • EzineArticles.com – This is a huge article directory website and you can often get ideas for Kindle books just by looking at the categories that are available for articles.
  • Clickbank Marketplace – On Clickbank, you can see what products people are selling and which niches are profitable.  You need a Clickbank account to view the marketplace.
  • JVZoo – Similar to Clickbank, you can see what products are selling on JVZoo and get some ideas just by searching around on there.
  • Your Local Bookstore – Just spend an hour visiting your local book store and walk around.  You’ll see thousands of potential niches and categories there that can give you many ideas that you can publish a Kindle book on.

Kindle Publishing Series: How To Find a Profitable Niche

1. First thing is to head over to the Kindle Best Sellers List.

You can access it at this link:

2. Now, here is where you can find all the bestselling books!

3. Now, what you are looking for here are keywords and niches that you can target. More specifically; keywords and terms that a book can be based on and that solves a particular problem for the reader.

Here is an example of some good keywords in the ‘Crafts & Hobbies’ category:

4. You want to go through various lists and categories and note down any potential keywords that you see. You may also get ideas that pop into your head, write those down too, so we can check if they are profitable later.

I would recommend writing down at least 15 potential keywords, to begin with, so that we can later assess each one.

You may be thinking:

What’s the difference between a keyword and the niche?

Good question. It can be easy for you to get confused between keywords and niches. I use the word ‘keywords’ to define keywords or terms that can be actual niches (markets) you can target. For instance, the word ‘Meditation’ is a keyword and a niche as well. When publishing your book, you would be publishing it in the meditation niche, you would target the meditation keyword and other additional related terms such as ‘Mindfulness’, ‘inner peace’, etc. In this section, we are looking for niches and markets to penetrate, not words alone.

5. Now, once you have gone through the best seller list and noted down 15 ideas for potential niches, we want to verify the profitability and the potential for you to also make money from these markets.

To do this, we are going to simply search each keyword on Amazon (under the Kindle Store menu) and go through some criteria that I am going to show you now.

This is the criteria I have developed, combining things I have learned and tested over the past 2 years. As a beginner, this is pretty much all you need to know and practice. You will build an ‘eye’ for profitable niches and will simply be able to tell if a niche is profitable just by accessing some basic factors.

The skill comes with practice and I recommend spending at least 10 mins a-day on niche research. Vital, vital skill.

NICHE ASSESSMENT CRITERIA

Here are the criteria we follow when assessing a niche. We start by going to Amazon.com, selecting the Kindle Store from the drop-down menu on the search bar and then searching each keyword we have written to check it against the following criteria:

On the first page of the search results you should find 5-6 books that meet ALL the following criteria:

  • Those 5-6 books have a Best Seller Rank of 100,000 or LESS (Not higher than 10,000, smaller than 100,000)
  • Those 5-6 books are selling between $0.99 and $3.99
  • Those 5-6 books have been on the market for at least 2 months (there are expectations as I will describe shortly)
  • Those 5-6 books have 100 reviews or less each

Additional Criteria (Not as important)

  • On the first page, there are no more than 3 free books ($0.00)
  • The search results bring up 2,000 books or less
  • At least a couple of those 5-6 books show opportunity for having value added

HERE IS THE BREAKDOWN OF EACH CRITERION;

  1. Top 5-6 books with a BSR of 100,000 or less

Amazon ranks each book on their site with something called a Best-Selling Rank (BSR for short).

To put it in perspective, let’s say there are 4 million books on Amazon. The number 1 bestselling book in the entire Amazon Kindle store will have a BSR of ‘1’, the 1000th bestselling book will have a rank of ‘1000’, the 1millionth book will have a rank of ‘1,000,000’ and so on. You can find the BSR in the ‘Product Details’ part of the book page.

9

We are looking for niches where the top 5-6 books (selling at $0.99, $2.99 or $3.99 and on the market for 2+ months) are at 100,000 BSR or less (LOWER). What this rank tells us is that this eBook is earning roughly at least $50 to $100+ per month from Kindle royalties (excluding paperback sales).

If you are investing let’s say $300 on a book for instance, after the 3rd or 4th month (assuming you do everything properly, as taught in this book) you are likely to have made your investment back and perhaps earned some profit already (if we combine that with paperback sales). The more profitable the niche and the higher you can rank, the more money you make. My best book earns me $800 per month (including paperback sales). Not bad for a book my team produced for a few hundred dollars!

But assuming you have multiple books bringing in just $50-$100 every month, it is just a matter of scaling and getting multiple high-quality books out there. That is the power of Kindle Publishing and creating assets, which are your books!

  1. Those 5-6 books must be selling between $0.99 and $3.99

The 2nd criterion is only analyzing books that sell between $0.99 and $3.99. The reason for this is that books between those prices are more likely to be your true competition. In contrary, the majority of the eBooks on sale for $6.99, $9.99 are books produced by ‘real’ authors or brands and not publishers like ourselves.

The main difference is that those authors and brands are likely to be driving external traffic to their book page. Which means they will have more sales than other books/publishers that are relying solely on organic traffic from Amazon searches. Our approach relies solely on Amazon traffic, so we want to ensure we only analyze books that use the same strategy. This will give us a more accurate assessment of the profitability of a market.

  1. Those books have been available for sale for at least 2 months

The 3rd criteria is only analyzing books that have been selling for at least 2 months. The reason why this is important is because when a book is new, Amazon gives its’ BSR a ‘boost’. So, new books may have BSR’s of 20,000, 30,000 when after a few weeks of being on the market (and not getting consistent sales) that may go up to 150,000 or 200,000+. So to avoid being fooled by deflated or faux BSR’s, it’s best to analyze books that have been on the market for more than 60 days and are no longer on Amazon steroids. Avoid getting inaccurate information. I have made that mistake in the past.

You can find the publication date in the book title, as well as the ‘Product Details‘:

10

However, it is good to mention that certain profitable niches will have books that are all really recent (a month or less). These niches are markets that are profitable but HEAVILY competitive, where new people are entering the market daily. I would put niches like that aside and gain some experience in less competitive markets first before going to war. Some examples in the past have been cookbooks. From Paleo Diet to the Instant Pot, I was seeing new books coming in daily and it was extremely hard to maintain rank and compete. Amazon can sometimes give a rank advantage to newer books. Keep that in mind.

  1. Majority of the books have 100 reviews or less

You also want most of your competitors’ books to have 100 reviews or less. This is so you are still competitive even if you have less reviews than them (20-30 reviews for example). On the other hand, if all the books have 200-300 reviews, then it makes it more challenging for you to compete if you don’t have a similar number of reviews. So, try to go for niches where at least 3 of the top 6 ranking books have 100 reviews or less (assuming they are selling well too). Of course, this is a rule-of-thumb.

You may come across very profitable markets where books may have more than 100 reviews. The objective in those niches is to outrank as many of those books and get to the top 3 places in the search results. (which is our objective regardless)

Then we have the Additional Criteria, which is not as crucial to your decision making. Just something to keep in the back of your mind. The criteria above are the most important.

  1. Not too many free books on page 1

I do, however, strongly recommend not going for markets where there are multiple free books. Especially in the 5-6 top positions on page 1. If there are more than 2 free books, most of the traffic is going to go to those free books. And if those books are good and have many reviews, the chance of someone paying for your $2.99 book instead of downloading the free one, well it’s a much slimmer chance. However, keep an eye on that market as it may be that the books are running the free promo and not permanently free. (I will discuss the free promo later).

  1. 2,000 or fewer results for Kindle Store

This criterion is merely a rule of thumb. You should target markets with more than 2k results if the other criteria are met. It’s more of a ‘rule of thumb’, as niches with too many results may be a sign that you are going too broad or that this is a saturated market. On the other hand, I personally don’t like to target keywords with less than 300 results as this can be a sign of you going for a topic that is not in such high demand. Again, these are just rules of thumb and there are always exceptions. Look at those BSR’s and the other criteria we discussed prior and you should know if your topic is worth it or not.

  1. Can I add value to this market?

This is an important one but it’s something you benefit from more in the long-term. The objective is to see whether there is any value you can bring to readers, to set yourself apart. Now, with very popular niches you will make sales regardless if your book is different or not. There are a high number of customers and as long as you can position yourself well in the ranks you will sell. With less crazy niches you must focus more on setting yourself apart, the quality of the content, the cover, how persuasive is the description, etc. Anything that can give you an edge, not only in the ability to convert a sale but to also bring more value than your competition. That’s what we aim to do for your books at HotGhostWriter.com.

Now, these are the simple, basic criteria to find profitable niches. I know it may seem too simple, but shortly I will give you a link to a video I recorded of the process and you will see that it actually works. It takes patience and practice.

However, we are not fully done! I also use other sources within Amazon to find profitable niches. There are other places you can spot good keywords and potential niches.

Other sources for potential niche ideas to shortlist:

Look at the titles:

11

Amazon Search Bar

Check the Amazon search bar: (predictive results that come up, that is an indication that they are commonly searched)

TIP: Use the incognito tab on your browser so that Amazon doesn’t adjust your predictive results

12

Look in the ‘Customers Who Bought This Also Bought’ section:

13

You will be surprised at the numerous ideas you can get from those 3 areas. Also, remember to check different keywords as keywords can be for the same niche and somewhat similar, but changing words around or adding/removing certain words can be the difference between getting traffic and sales and not getting traffic and sales.

For example, ‘meditation for beginners’ may not be profitable, but ‘meditation for weight loss’ may be profitable (that’s just an example by the way). Keep that in mind!

Healthy protein at around 25– 30% of overall day-to-day calories has actually been shown to enhance metabolism by as much as 80– 100 calories each day, compared to reduced protein diets.

To obtain muscular tissue, your body must synthesize more muscle mass healthy protein than it damages down.

To put it simply, there needs to be a net positive healthy protein balance in your body– usually called nitrogen balance, as healthy protein is high in nitrogen.

Therefore, people that desire a great deal of muscle need to eat a higher amount of healthy protein (as well as raise weights, naturally). It’s well documented that a higher protein consumption assists build muscle mass as well as toughness.

Individuals who intend to hold on to muscle mass they have actually currently constructed may need to raise their protein intake when losing body fat, as a high healthy protein consumption can help protect against muscle mass loss that usually happens when diet programs.

When it comes to muscle mass, researches generally do not look at the percentage of calories however rather everyday grams of healthy protein per kgs or pounds of body weight.

A common referral for getting muscle is 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight, or 2.2 grams of protein per kg.

Other researchers have actually estimated the healthy protein requires to be a minimum of 0.7 grams per pound, or 1.6 grams per kg.

Many researches have actually attempted to determine the optimal quantity of healthy protein for muscular tissue gain but numerous get to various final thoughts.

Some research studies show that more than 0.8 grams per pound (1.8 grams per kg) have no benefit, while others suggest that consumption a little higher than 1 gram of healthy protein per extra pound (2.2 grams per kg) is finest.

Though it’s tough to offer specific numbers because of conflicting research results, about 0.7– 1 grams per extra pound (1.6– 2.2 grams per kg) of body weight seems to be an affordable estimate.

Older adults have dramatically enhanced protein requires as well– as much as 50% higher than the DRI, or regarding 0.45– 0.6 grams per pound (1– 1.3 grams per kg) of body weight.

This can assist stop osteoporosis as well as sarcopenia (reduction in muscle mass), both considerable troubles in the senior.

People recovering from injuries may likewise need more protein.

Any type of presumed destructive results of protein on kidney feature are surpassed by its positive impacts on these danger aspects.

Protein has actually also been criticized for osteoporosis, which seems unusual taking into consideration that research studies reveal that it can, as a matter of fact, prevent this condition.

Generally, there is no proof that a reasonably high healthy protein intake has any kind of negative results in healthy and balanced people attempting to remain healthy and balanced.

What “Grams of Protein” Really Implies

This is a really common misunderstanding.

In nourishment scientific research, “grams of healthy protein” describes grams of the macronutrient protein, not grams of a protein-containing food like meat or eggs.

An 8-ounce serving of beef considers 226 grams yet only includes 61 grams of actual healthy protein. Likewise, a huge egg weighs 46 grams however only loads 6 grams of protein.
What Concerning the Average Person?

If you’re at a healthy weight, don’t lift weights and also don’t exercise much, after that aiming for 0.36– 0.6 grams per extra pound (0.8– 1.3 gram per kg) is a practical quote.

This totals up to:

56– 91 grams daily for the average male.
46– 75 grams each day for the ordinary woman.

However considered that there is no proof of injury and a significant evidence of benefit, it’s likely far better for most individuals to err on the side of more healthy protein rather than less.

Jenny Slate is a powerhouse in Earth Break as she navigates a postapocalyptic world

Podmass_In [Podmass](https://www.avclub.com/c/podmass),_ The A.V. Club _sifts through the ever-expanding world of podcasts and recommends the previous week’s best episodes. Have your own favorite? Let us know in the comments or at [podmass@avclub.com](mailto:podmass@avclub.com)._  

For four podcast seasons now, journalist, comedian, and LGBTQ activist Gaby Dunn has been offering listeners an approachable guide to personal finance. Bad With Money is a breeze to listen to at a time when, frankly, looking over your finances is not. This week, Dunn talks to two men who were successful in defeating the odds by paying off their debt and even making up for lost time: Marcus Garrett and Rich Jones. Jones kicks off the podcast recalling how he created about $20,000 of debt with his ex-partner by sharing a credit card at a young age and being unconcerned with paying it off. Garrett shares his experience of accumulating $26,000 of debt in a single incredibly baller weekend. In under an hour, the two share insight on how they recognized their core values and started to prioritize chipping away at the financial burden that followed them everywhere. Even if you’ve never thought about how your spending might contribute to your personal debt, this podcast will prompt you to assess your habits and relationship to your bank account. [Kevin Cortez]


Earth Break: A Few Suggestions For Survival, With Additional Hints And Tips About How To Make Yourself More Comfortable During The Alien Apocalypse
Finally Dying

In this new scripted podcast from Skylark Media, Jenny Slate plays Lynn Gellert, a thirtysomething woman who has made it five weeks into the alien bioapocalypse without dying thanks to what she refers to as “sheer dumb luck.” Lynn’s only companion on her trek through the wastelands of her home is a tape recorder from her late mother’s attic. Her moment-to-moment survival is challenging enough, but when Lynn learns she’s pregnant, she also has to cope with the idea of building a future. Earth Break’s sound design is one of its standout qualities; Lynn’s audio diaries often begin and end abruptly, with appropriate grunts, alien screeches, crashes, and scuffling to make each one feel genuinely jarring (and sometimes gross: emetophobic listeners should be careful of audible vomiting toward the end of this episode). Slate is, as always, compelling to listen to, bringing charm and flow to a sometimes cliché script. While apocalypse narratives are hardly scarce, Earth Break succeeds in making post-apocalyptic living personal, illuminating the bargains we all make between the world’s future and our own.

Eli Roth’s History of Horror: Uncut
Stephen King

During the premiere episode of Eli Roth’s History of Horror: Uncut, Roth presents Stephen King with a Frank Zito action figure complete with bloody scalp. The sheer joy King expresses at now owning a pocket-sized version of one of the most disgusting killers in film history perfectly sums up this latest podcast from the horror streaming service Shudder. Each episode is an interview with a horror aficionado or icon, and it really doesn’t get more iconic than King. Roth and King do plenty of theorizing about why we like being scared and what makes horror work, but the real pleasure is in listening to two nerds geek out about their favorite subject. Most of the interview boils down to how cool the meat hook scene in Texas Chainsaw Massacre was and how rad it is that a zombie once fought a shark. “The worst horror movie I ever saw was fucking great!” King says at one point, capturing the celebratory mood of the podcast and the AMC series, to which it serves as a companion. If you’ve ever wanted a Frank Zito of your very own, this is for you. [Anthony D Herrera]


This promising new podcast explores the intersection of mental health and media, unpacking the pop culture narratives that shape our understanding of mental illness. Host Sandy Allen and culture writer Hannah Giorgis kick off this debut episode with an in-depth conversation about BoJack Horseman, the Netflix animated series known for its disarmingly complex and compassionate explorations of depression, addiction, and intergenerational trauma. “There is something in here that we do not often see on TV, especially in animated television, and I would say in general,” Allen tells Giorgis, who recalls her initial reluctance to watch the “depressed horse show.” While experiencing a depressive episode of her own, Giorgis eventually decided to “lean in” to the popular series, ultimately developing an appreciation for the show and its refusal to romanticize depression or fall back on the “tortured artist” trope. Allen and Giorgis also discuss BoJack’s frequent alcohol-fueled flashbacks and listen back to a clip that offers a heartbreaking glimpse into his unhappy childhood with a distant novelist father and emotionally abusive mother, Beatrice. A subsequent flashback clip reveals Beatrice’s own fractured relationship with her involuntarily lobotomized mother, a surprisingly haunting moment for a show about a cartoon horse.

The season finale to this raucous and touching science-fiction comedy showcases the peak of both the creators’ humor and their understanding of balance between the funny and the serious. Oblivity tracks the story of Commander Falconer, a war hero who suffered a nervous breakdown and was sent to a scientific research station on Pluto. Research Station Persephone is staffed by oddballs, the people who don’t quite fit, and Falconer tries to keep the team from falling apart at the edges, as she feels she herself might be. “Falconer The Fearless” sees Falconer facing down the test that determines whether she can return to the field, and her team facing down the return of Profocter, the evil genius who created their cyborg engineer, Lowell. Nothing ever goes as planned on Persephone, however, and everyone is forced to make a decision: who deserves their loyalty? How can they escape? And what, exactly, is Burney doing in that lab of his? From Lowell’s cute Cybergerbil to Falconer’s complete ignorance as to what really happened here, the finale encompasses everything Oblivity has been about since the beginning: loyalty, friendship, and really stupid decisions. Lowell will always press the button. [Elena Fernández Collins]


A.I. has infiltrated our lives for better and worse without many of us even noticing. Sleepwalkers breaks down the invisible forces that define how we live online. In its first episode, hosts Oz Woloshyn and Karah Preiss tackle the modern the side effects of living online that no one was prepared for, such as the painful experience of Gillian Brockell, who had a stillbirth and was haunted by infant-centric advertisements no matter how much she tried to beat the algorithm. They also discuss how terrorist groups began using common online platforms to radicalize individuals. The positive side of online dating and the negative effects of our growing screen addiction are examined as well. In the end, Sleepwalkers does not set out to demonize the internet. Instead, it encourages listeners to be aware of the internet’s complexity. As Woloshyn says, there is no way to know if the internet is bad for humanity; however, there is hope that it is neutral. Hope that we can hold onto, as long as users are willing to wake up and make more informed choices. [Nichole Williams]


The Constant: A History Of Getting Things Wrong
The Gentle Hammer

This is a popular indie offering with a soft history focus and a philosophical bent. Rather than lionize the march of progress, Mark Chrisler picks apart the legacy of error in a meditative monument to human folly, analyzing big moments cursed by small thinking. Past episodes have focused on world-class boners like insurance fraud and inciting mass pandemonium, but the bad idea sussed out in this week’s show isn’t as obvious, Laszlo Toth’s deranged attack on Michelangelo’s Pietà statue notwithstanding. The aftermath of the attack, which horrified the world and nearly cost Toth his life, is what concerns Chrisler. Authorities elected to repair the fractured masterpiece, and though the restoration was flawless, it foisted Michelangelo with a co-creator 500 years after the fact and gauchely airbrushed the Pietà’s story. Chrisler’s hypnotic reasoning plays on the episode’s title—an ironic name given to Toth’s act by sympathetic artists—and places its muted destruction on the restoration effort. There’s also a great bonus discussion about virtually every art museum on Earth exhibiting undetected forgeries. [Zach Brooke]


Starting off as staffers at BuzzFeed, the hosts of The TryPod—Eugene Lee Yang, Ned Fulmer, Keith Habersberger, and Zach Kornfeld—stumbled upon lightning in a bottle when they began making humorous informational videos of themselves trying various things for the first time. From attempting drag to wearing skimpy Halloween costumes, the four friends have done it all; they’ve even broken away from BuzzFeed to start their own company. Now, as an independent venture, they’re publishing a book, going on tour, and as of this month, they’ve launched a podcast. Offering their die-hard fans (called Tryceratops) even more of what they want, The TryPod features Yang, Fulmer, Habersberger, and Kornfeld chatting about a wide array of things, including but not limited to the current cultural attitude toward sex tapes and how childhood pyromania can lead to getting into Yale. The podcast succeeds on the strengths of The Try Guys themselves, namely the amazing chemistry the four of them share. Since their BuzzFeed days, the guys have become best friends, and this is obvious from the way their conversation flows and builds, moving from shared anecdotes to discovered comedic bits. The TryPod is an entertaining new branch on the ever-expanding Try Guys media tree. [Jose Nateras]


Thinking Big With Maisie Williams
Loyle Carner

Maisie Williams knows you are probably wondering why she started a podcast, but Game Of Thrones is over for her, and she wants to try something else—something wildly different, like exploring people’s childhood dreams. If you only know her as Arya Stark, you are in for a fantastic treat; Thinking Big With Maisie Williams is full of self-effacing humor, delicate sarcasm, and contagious joy. This inaugural episode features British MC and actor Loyle Carner, who confesses his childhood dream was to become a famous footballer or actor. Clearly, some dreams stick more than others, though he says he still plays football every week with the guys from his local barbershop. His grandfather was a poet, his mother a musician, and as he and Williams unravel the ways his dreams were supported and fortified by the creative vibes and secret poetry notebooks in his home, the journey of three generations of artists becomes apparent. You might have come for Maisie Williams, which is correct, but you will stay for the effortless way she reveals the nature of dreams. [Morgan McNaught]


Maybe because it’s by the same producers of Criminal, but This Is Love is very good at finding unpredictable ways to tell stories about our deepest motivations. “We’re not doing pretty love or easy love,” explains host Phoebe Judge. Past episodes feature more than just the love between two people, but also between a man and his home, a woman and the TV show Outlander, and a woman and a baby whale. In their new season, Judge invites us to ponder the Greek concept of philautia, or self-love, by letting us tag along with her to the idyllic Italian village of Piobbico, where there’s an exclusive club with only one membership requirement: being ugly as sin. The club is sort of an ugly-person version of Under The Tuscan Sun. Members drink wine, eat truffles (a notoriously ugly, but rare and valuable, town specialty), and people are generally happy with who they are. Because they realize, like Umberto Eco says, that beauty, with all its trappings of perfection, symmetry, and order, is actually pretty boring. The aberrations, the interruptions, the messiness of unpredictability—that’s what makes things interesting. [Amber Cortes]


Living in America, surrounded by the American entertainment industry, it can be easy to forget the massive impact of the Chinese market. Big studio releases make a significant portion of their box-office return from Chinese audiences, and there are a ton of homegrown Chinese blockbusters topping worldwide gross lists that we never even hear about. The new biweekly podcast Uproar In The Studio is attempting to remedy that cultural blind spot one film at a time. Each episode focuses on a different movie from the ever-changing list of highest-grossing Chinese films, like the martial-arts-centric body-switching comedy Never Say Die and, on the most recent episode, the genre-defying, semi-animated Monster Hunt series. Additionally, the hosts invite journalists, professors, and fellow podcasters onto the show to provide further context. This episode’s guest, Carl Zha (Silk And Steel), is a fountain of information about Chinese cinema and tells a great story about how Stephen Chow’s 2015 romantic comedy The Mermaid became a surprise box-office hit after everyone felt guilty about torrenting his previous films. Some Westerners might never fully understand or appreciate Chinese blockbusters, but this podcast can paint them a clearer picture. [Dan Neilan]
