    What's your USP? How are you marketing the book itself? Is your sales page
    done? What are the benefits? Can you convey them to your target market?

    If there are no books out there like it, do you know for certain that there
    is a demand for it, either through doing keyword research or going to forums
    and asking people flat out if they'd be interested in a book like this?

    If you did, why not just also ask them what they'd pay for such a book?

    It's absolutely impossible to answer your question with so many unknowns.

    Trying to sell something that nobody else is selling is risky unless you're
    really certain about your research, and part of that research, if you did it,
    should have included getting price ideas from your target market by telling
    them what it is you're selling.

    Make sense?

      well, since i dont have money to pay for traffic im gonna use organic traffic (articles,social bookmaring etc.), and there is a demand for it, and here are 2 factors i already researched keywords for it, have a good amount of searches done, ive asked on some forums, they showed some interest in it, my sales page is almost done., the benefits will be increased traffic thus resulting in more sales (in the time that me and my beta-testers used it, it felt a diff). regarding the price...no1 really told me they just told me ranges...like form x$ to xy$...but many of them were something like 30-150$...its kinda not an actual opinion.
      and my method targets even you guys, or any1 thats want more traffic&sales that they are already doing. or even if they are just starting.

      edit: based on that there is no guide about this method out there...at least none that i found...and i did some good research

    Hi, I am just wondering what do you mean by "one of a kind"? based on what ground?
    And if it is a sub-niche, what about the demand? what about their buying pattern? do they go for ebook products? if yes, what price point are they comfortable at? who have they bought from before? (and you can model these sellers or marketers)

    In my opinion, if you have a medium which you can use, shouldn't the medium be the way you market your book. Check out how your targeted customers buy in this medium.

    Assuming they do really buy ebooks, you may want to draw them into your product funnel with a freebie, capture their emails and promote an OTO for them as your backend. This OTO can be your ebook.

    My 2 cents,
    John
