why my business books sell little?

the answer is simple:

way more competition:

search for paperback on amazon:

  • jealousy 897
  • breakup 671 
  • selling 12000
  • marketing 86000
is this enough to explain the proportion of sales in the various topics?

I think this is partly an explanation.

The thing though is that jealousy or breakups were way more researched on my end so my books on these topics are way richer.

the answer is that books need to to be extremely targeted on topics people want...

here are more examples:
  • emotions 11000
  • polyamory 88
  • open relationships 32
  • cheating 834
  • penis 2300
  • lingam 300
  • tantra 1700
  • tantric sex 85

marketing analysis of what works and what doesn't and why


That's something I can check further to increase the response my books get...

here are some of the things I discovered:

  • book cover with picture or no picture doesn't seem to be a major influence factor - I can't measure any sizable difference in the sales

possible ebooks and books strategies


here are the major directions I can take right now:

  • find ways of promoting my ebooks further
  • create new ebooks
  • update and perfect the existing ones
  • marketing analysis of what works and what doesn't and why
