How to pick a niche or subcategory to sell in [3/4]

Did you try some searches yesterday?

I find it fun to do, but time consuming, though.

That’s why I prefer to let tools help me. Tools, that can give me an idea quickly about how popular, profitable, and easy a niche is to get into.

One of the first tools I used has helped me a lot. It’s not as precise as the one I’ll talk about tomorrow, but it’s still pretty good.

It can save you time, both during research, but also from not writing books about topics that won’t sell… or where the competition is too high.

I’m talking about Kindle Spy.

It’s a browser plugin, you install, click on, and then it takes you to Amazon’s bestseller list.

From there, you click into the categories that interests you, and when you find one, you click the browser icon again, and it will show you with red, yellow, or green lamps, how good a niche is.

Absolutely easy, and very fast.

It will also give you word clouds, which can help you come up with keywords and a title for your book.

I’m using KD Spy a lot, both to find fiction and nonfiction niches.

Ugh, not a great potential for isometric exercises:
