If you run a small business selling books on Amazon, you probably understand that competing with industry giants selling universal classics like The Great Gatsby isn’t the best idea. Rather, you should be looking at niche markets where seller competition is low, yet the demand for the books is comparably higher.

Selling books on Amazon is challenging seeing as readers change their tastes and read new bestsellers weekly. The best books to sell today won’t be the same as the ones tomorrow. If you want to be successful selling books on Amazon, you need to be able to research what books are performing well.

Another key factor that you need to consider is how you will source your books. For small-time resellers, knowing how viable a specific book is will save you time and money when hunting for individual books to resell. For larger publishers, you will need to look at all available marketplaces to see which ones have the most profitable opportunities.

The only way to successfully accomplish these things is through product research. Algopix is an Amazon product research tool that provides you with the necessary KPIs you need to determine if a specific book is viable. By taking sales data from Amazon, eBay, and Walmart servers, Algopix can recommend books based on projected consumer demand, selling prices, and other useful metrics.
