Do market research
The first thing you need is to do some market research to see if the demand for the subject you want to write about is actually there. Also, access your competition and know who are into the same niche you with you already. As a beginner who is yet to build that great reputation for yourself, you want to find a niche that is high in demand but doesn’t have very stiff competition.
Who are your target audience?
Find out whom your target audience is. Think about their language, age, sex and location. Think about their income levels and career paths and the topics that they might like to read about in your eBook.
Come up with a killer topic and title, and the right keywords
Writing an eBook that sells involves knowing the right keywords to use. In short of it, the right keywords are those that are popular. Use tools like Google Keyword Planner to find the right keywords. The goal is to get a good estimate of how many people that are searching for your topic.
