    Hey guys,

    Recently I got an idea to write a book on the "keyword research" topic and I would like to hear your opinions.

    First of all I'm not a native speaker, also I have never written anything except some articles for my websites. Since I'm not a native speaker I can't really do all the jibber-jabber shit that just make the book larger. What I can do is go directly to the point and express it the straight way so even noobs can understand it.

    I have some really great methods on how to find EMD domains with 10-20-30k+ exact searches (Yeah I got a service here, but due to overload I stopped it, sorry guys can't handle it). I have gone really really deep with my keyword research so I'm doing a lot of additional stuff that other people doesn't even know it's possible.

    So here are the problems I'm facing...
    1. It's gonna take me a while to write the book, perhaps a month to collect all the usefull information and make it worth it.
    2. Some resources will have to be spent to edit the book and make it error-free. The money are not the problem here, perhaps it's gonna take another 2-3 weeks. Also I need to build a website and make some YouTube videos, just to make it professional.
    3. I don't have an account with 1000+ posts on WF, and my plan is WF to be my main place to sell my ebook. Of course I will try some aff networks and paid advertising, but who knows it might not work.
    4. Main problem: People don't have any close idea how important the keyword research is. They really believe it's something small and unimportant work that has to be done. When they see a 100-120 pages ebook how I'm gonna convince them that they really have to read it and buy it?

    Any ideas and suggestions will be highly appreciated.
    Of course there are tons of other troubles that I will face, like some random guy will post my ebook here sooner than later, but it's ok for me. Also all the teens that get their books for free, asking for a refund 2 days after they have bought it, etc.

    THanks in advance everybody!

    Hire an experienced WSO sales copywriter, they will make a WSO sales thread professionally liek any other WSO's page you see.

    My friend sells WSO's all the time, and he gets hundreds of clients for a WSO ebook. He makes pretty good money.

    The problem is that, you need to make sure your product is perfect and not a copy of some other ebook you found or downloaded. Otherwise people will want a refund back, you'll waste 30 bucks for a WSO thread, and your sales will fail.

    If it's really good and you get really good results, then you might even hit a thousands sales.

    Good luck, and I'll know you'll do fine. Just hire an experienced sales copywriter for WSO. They should be able to do graphics too.

    EDIT: Don't forget to set up a good pricing range. a WSO is typically a low price offer, so make it so that the first 10 sales are $5, next 10 is $10, the rest is $20! You know, set up your own pricing model. A sales copywriter will definitely make it super convincing for people to buy it.

    The best point in the WSO is to show how much money you made with keyword research niche, and how much money you can sell keywords for for profits. People will buy this WSO for 3 reasons:

    1) They make mini niche sites too, and when they read you WSO, they know the importance.
    2) They love making money. If they saw this WSO and saw the potential money making, they'll buy it!
    3) They buy it because it's a WSO. This apparently is an odd reason, but it's true. Many people buy random shit on warrior forum because it's low price and it sounds cool.

    Shoot! I'd buy it. I would fall under category #1, I have niche websites and if you have a good ass method for finding easy high traffic keywords, I'm in! You should PM me when you're ready to sell this.

    Thanks for your answer, huykun!

    It really opened my eyes for the topics "how much money I have done with this method". Since I really have made money with keyword research it would be a nice additional stuff. I see that others WSOs are going really good when they have "how to make $3083,14 in 5 days!"

    Any additional ideas/suggestions will be highly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    You can get the ebook written through some professional ghost writer. You can also have a short intro or summary of it that shows only 10% of the actual book but it must be convincing so that they buy the actual ebook soon. The summary can be sent for free to interested buyers.

    Absolutely it is worth it but...

    ...it does need to be well written and the salescopy needs to write up the product as if it is much, much more than it really is. Do both of those and Warriors will love it.

    DON'T make out the book is JUST about Keyword research though. That sounds boring and most would-be marketers, which are the guys who spend the money, are frightened off by it. So you have to find another angle, maybe lump it in with a 'How To Make A Million Dollars In A Weekend' type product. Adapt some PLR or use something from your own experience.

    Getting it written up could be difficult. How about if you just make a set of videos using Powerpoint slides because Warriors seem to love those. Getting someone off Fiverr to narrate it shouldn't be too difficult if spoken English is a problem for you.

    I hate to send people here, but test it out on DP for free. They prob won't sell as well, but it won't cost you anything.

    well, I think it's a much needed topic to write about. I would buy it. Only thing is - these kinds of books only last a month or so. They end up free on all of the blackhat and pirate forums.

    Try researching what you can do on Kindle. Google for: Amanda Hocking
    The girl just made over two million dollars in the last few months and she can't even write very well. She did however, promote herself very well through a blog and through writer review boards. She made herself seem like a humble and transparent person. People love that kind of stuff and rush to buy your book - apparently.
