Well, this is what my tips are all about today, how to know if the acim idea you are planning to write has a chance to stand-out and sell. After all, even if it’s the tiniest of markets it will have to compete for proper attention in this hi-tech world? For your book to be able to compete in a world like ours today, you must target a niche market (people to sell your book to) interested in your book.
After pinpointing a market, develop a way of making your book different. You need a different viewpoint, a niche, or a different spin on perhaps the same information. Examine the problem again. Look at the solution your book idea solves with the goal of coming up with a way to present your knowledge differently than existing books.
Here are ten ideas for a book that stands out in a crowd and sells:
1. Business/Job Experience: If you have ten years or more of job experience, you could consider writing a book centered around your job. Even a previous job or business would fit the bill. For example, a couple of aspiring book writers sold their successful retail business to retire. They had tons of retail ownership tips to share and experience from mistakes they made along the way to success. New franchise owners and general retail owners would love to read their inspiring stories and tips to gain the same success. My advice was, “Go for it! Start writing now.”
2. Your Course: Compile your new book around a course you have taught for years. You already love the subject matter. Take your existing lessons and even lesson plans and form them into a book. If you are a stronger speaker than writer, consider taping your lesson presentations and getting them transcribed. Then hire a ghostwriter to take the transcriptions and develop into a book. I encourage you to not just take the transcript and copy into book form. But charge the writer or yourself to write it into a book using conversational language.
3. Life experiences: Use a life experience and form a book around it. Memoirs are good books to form out of life experiences. But they are not the only ones; you can use an experience of overcoming an insurmountable problem to inspire others. For example, if you got well from a major disease or any trauma like a car wreck. You may have worked through injuries and disabilities that would inspire others to do the same.
