People have been downloading specialized books online for many years now, but the popularity of digital book readers and tablets has made writing an ebook even more of a lucrative prospect. The best subject for your ebook isn't necessarily the highest profiting one. Write about what you know, and market your work to the specific audience that you know will be interested.


People often turn to the Internet to abate their sense of insecurity, or to find solutions to specific personal problems. People want an inexpensive way to deal with everyday concerns such as fitness, health and alternative medicine, mental health, divorce, bereavement, and loneliness. Often, people want information about how to improve their appearance, and will pay for weight loss advice, makeup tips or beauty secrets.


Ebooks about relationships don't just offer self-improvement advice, but suggest how to improve the condition between individuals. General relationship subjects include marriage, dating, friendship, and even parenting. Relationship ebooks can cover topics like effective communication styles, conflict resolution and theories of harmonious relationships.

Making Money

Almost everyone is interested in making more money. Some people are interested in advancing in their careers and want effective business strategies to implement in their current fields. Others want to know how to make money on the side and would be interested in, for example, selling items on eBay or making money online. Others want to know effective ways of managing the money they have now: where to invest it, how to lower their taxes and the best way to buy a house. Ebooks that offer financial success sell very well.


The high price of buying a paperback often stands in the way of people becoming engrossed in a fantasy, horror, romance or mystery. These genres are especially popular. With a low enough price, readers won't be able to resist reading your narrative. Many popular fiction writers have chosen to self-publish their texts online, and have become famous and wealthy for their efforts. Consider sidestepping traditional publishing and market your book online.
