Powerful, Profitable Topics For Your eBook - Current Events
You have thought about writing your own eBook for months
now, but you just can't seem to decide on an idea that
will get you started?
Don't be discouraged, you are not the only one to face
the daunting task of choosing a profitable topic for
your information product.
As information product developers, we are always seeking

areas related to your interests (ie. business,
economics, health, education, sports, etc...)
4) Observer the "Water Cooler" discussions - they
are excellent clues as to what the "hot" topics
are in people's minds.
5) Monitor online discussion groups for topics that
bring in information normally outside the narrow
scope of board content.

to differentiate an existing idea, or simply looking
for how to increase demand for an existing idea - then
try and link your knowledge, skills and interests to
current events. You may just get the concept for your
next blockbuster information product.
