Here is another niche ideal for both printables and POD/KDP books. Math workbooks and worksheets.

You can create these as:

  • books on a single theme (e.g. multiplication practice)
  • books for a single age with multiple types of math activities
  • printables for a single theme or age
  • convert them to video quizzes

To create by age, it would be helpful to look at homeschooling resources to see what types of math problems and difficulty level is expected. The common core standards for math has a downloadable PDF that also tells you what kids are expected to know at each grade level.

You can also theme (aka sub-niche) your books and printables by type of activity. Things like counting exercises and telling time are great for preschool and kindergarten, while basic math operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division is good for school age kids.

Fractions & percents are another way to theme your book.

There are plenty of other number based activity pages that you can make.

Counting Money: Add up the total amount of money given pictures of coins and bills

Math Riddles: Solving the math problems gives clues to the answer of a riddle. For example if 3+1=4 and the number 4 corresponds to the letter D, then in the answer to the riddle, every D has a 4 under the line or box.

Matching: Match the number to the number of objects. For example a group of 3 apple images needs to be matched to the number 3. You could make this harder by having 3 apple images and match it to an equation like 1+2.

Where to Sell:

The beauty of this idea is twofold:

  • you can repurpose your pages into books, printables, and even video quiz content
  • you can sell in multiple places

Try Teachers Pay Teachers, Etsy, and your own web shop for printables.

Use KDP, Draft2Digital, or IngramSpark for books.

Upload quiz content to Youtube, TikTok, or other social media to promote your books and printables.

This is a niche that you could build a whole business around.

Keys to a Profitable Niche

  • Know Your Audience: Research to understand what your audience is looking for, and tailor your low-content book to meet those needs.
  • Market Trends: Be aware of popular topics and themes as they may indicate profitable sub-niches.
  • Unique Value Proposition: Make sure your book has special features or designs that are not easily found elsewhere.
