I have been working on several projects lately that are targeted towards certian niches in the health/illness area. I was having a hard time with the confidence of what to put in a ebook and what people would actual want to read about.
While doing reasearch for keywords and trying to find topics that high intrest with low competition I noticed something that might be helpful to others. Using seo book keyword tool I was noticing that after entering a topic for search it basically would outline what your ebook should cover.
For example if you enter in pregnancy in the keyword tool it will come up with a list of long tail keywords and its daily total searches for each. What I found that had around 1000 searches a day or more was..
day by day pregnancy
pregnancy week by week
pregnancy first stages
online pregnancy test
serious pregnancy complications
signs of pregnancy
chinese pregnancy calender
And the list goes on but you can find topics to discuss and doing a little reasearch you can come up with a nice little ebook that you can sell for $7. I am finding that you set the prices lower people are more likely to grab it and you can put items in you ebook that gives you affiliate sales etc.
After you do some research and complete your ebook you can make a generic sales page. Once your done doing that or having it done for you just target the long tailed keywords that have the most traffic and least competition and start writing articles for each keyword and using the keyword in the title.
I did this with one of my first products and it was a success. I kept hearing on here how you have to make your own product to really do well. I was nervous about it cause I didnt know what to expect from the buyers but all went well and I made some great extra income. At least the wife is finally happy that I have some results after spending endless hours on the computer
Anyway this may be basic for most of you but thought it might be something a newbie could use to help lead them in the right direction on creating a product. You just have to find what people are searching for and the rest is easy. The content is already on the web all you have to do is put it in your own words for the topics your targeting.
