Commit to a niche, try not to be everything to everyone.Davis
KDP niche research is what differentiates bestsellers from ordinary sand zero sellers. Most of the time, those who complain that KDP is over-saturated are those who fail to carry out niche research prior to creating and hosting their product on the Amazon platform.
My sole aim is to show you how I carry my niching down from start to finish. My interest is to show everything I know about the subject, in a very simple yet effective way to get profitable and low competitive niches. This will help you make money in this profitable but competitive industry.
Niche research is the only solution to the over-saturation. How do you niche down to get products in demand yet with very low competition?
One error that experienced and bestsellers stay clear of is trying to create their own niches out of nowhere. Avoid this grave mistake! Do not generate your own niche out of a vacuum, just because you have an interest or intuition that people will like that niche. No! The fact that you have a particular interest does not mean that the market out there would also love the same niche product. In most of these instances, these niches are not necessarily new markets. Don’t forget that our ultimate aim for niche research is to find a niche that is already profitable and highly in demand. Don’t create a book on a niche because it’s something YOU love, and you feel there might be demand for it. No! No! No! Look for what is being sought after in the MARKET yet with low competition. Find a niche that is ALREADY profitable. This cannot be understated.

Things to always remember

- Average Best Seller Ranks – These niches have an average bestseller rank of below 200k. The BSR indicates the level of demand for a product. The lower the BSR, the better, and vice versa.
- Keyword Niche Score – Each niche has a keyword niche score of approximately 50.0 or greater
- Google Search Volume (Optional) – Most of these niches do have a monthly search value in google as well
One may also use Google keyword planner to look for books in demand or use normal google for this initial research.
To make money with KDP, do not
- Choose niches that are too saturated
- Choose NICHES OR KEYWORDS that are too competitive
- Design unique and covers that speak to their niches
PRACTICAL NICHE RESEARCH – KDP
Go to Amazon
See below; the cryptocurrency in the Amazon search bar is the market and the various topics are the niches or the keywords.
BSR (BESTSELLER RANKS)
Always target a low competitive niche, a competition of less than 10,000 is great, as that is less competitive. From there we target a bestseller rank of less < than #2000,000. The very low the BSR the better, meaning there is high demand for such a product. Continue in this process of niching down till you find products with the lowest BSR and the lowest competition.
This is the whole process of the KDP niche research.
