How to Select the Best Subject for your next eBook —and What Subjects to Avoid!
First, You Must Understand Why People Use The Internet
Internet users are starving! They are all hungry for two basic things: information and entertainment. The provision of information is a basic role of the Internet, and the World Wide Web provides the ideal means of finding, viewing, and supplying this information.
The well-researched eBook is an excellent method of supplying the required information in a more tangible and lasting format. But, Website visitors will download your eBook, only if they think it will provide the information they seek.
Finding The Best Subject
Without doubt, the best subjects are those in demand by people using the World Wide Web. You can get some ideas by viewing the trending sections of major search engines.
When you think about all you've learned throughout your life, you'll be amazed with how much information you can offer. Your own life experiences can be worth a fortune.
Like many people, perhaps you think your knowledge is of interest to anyone. However, you can still write an eBook. Research a market or topic that interests you and learn all that you can about a specific subject, then write about it.
Here are a few ideas to get your mind working:
You can make an advanced Internet search on your selected topic by using one of the leading search engines, and you'll be amazed at the information you find.

Finding The Inspiration
Many people are inspired with an eBook project and start writing only to lose their focus and motivation before they are half-way through. You can easily avoid this, if you define your reasons for selecting the subject and figuring out if you have sufficient inspiration and drive to finish the project.
Did you notice the word ‘finish’ in the last sentence? There are tens of thousands, if not millions of would-be writers with desks and computers stuffed with part-written articles, stories, novels, manuscripts for non-fiction, and much more.
A simple, yet powerful motivating force for completing your eBook is to imagine what life will be like when your writing is finished.
What will please you the most:
- The sense of achievement from writing an eBook on your chosen subject?
- Recognition from your family, friends, or neighbours?
- Showing your peer group that you’re a published author?
- Distributing free copies worldwide through the Internet?
- Banking royalty cheque's or sales fees from each purchase of your eBook?
Once you find your motivating force, create the image in your mind of the finished eBook and its effect on your life. Feel your blood pumping through your veins when you receive your first sale. Imagine the reaction of others, when they hear that you're working from the comfort of your home and banking more money than they make!
Subjects To Avoid
This is a simple one - avoid all subjects, however profitable they may be, for which you have no knowledge, experience, or empathy. This is because it is more difficult for you to write on unfamiliar subjects, and the finished manuscript will not be up to your usual standard.
You may read that people are making large profits from books about knitting. However, if you don't have a complete understanding of the craft, don’t know one end of the knitting needle from the other, and don't even like knitting or the subject of knitting, then the best research in the world will not enable you to write a bestseller on knitting.
