“I could not have attained a high score on the ISP exam without your study materials. The study materials you provided helped me prepare for this certification. I am very happy to be a part of this elite group of professionals.”
Tony Cirafice, ISP Security Specialist
How is Get Rich in a Niche different?
While other blogs and websites claim that all you have to do is just write a book and you’ll make millions, Get Rich in a Niche helps authors write, publish and market books. We don’t stop there, we even help entrepreneurs develop spin-off products from niche ideas. These ideas actually work for those who want to create an enduring business.
Jeff Bennett is the owner of Red Bike Publishing and author of many niche industry books. He developed a way to market his books by earning trust and developing credibility. Now he is the “go to” author for the industrial security business.
Just writing a book doesn’t get you there. It’s a process of establishing credit and building trust that does. There are many author coaches and vanity publishers claiming such wonderful dreams, but they just don’t always work out. Books, novels, niche ideas and specialized industry products require unique and innovative marketing strategies as outlined in Get Rich in a Niche.
Some of the hype asks vulnerable authors to pay money to be included on a mailing list to librarians and book stores. You pay, provide book information and hope they choose yours out of the hundreds they receive.
Hope is not a strategy.
In truth, librarians and book stores get their products from distributors, not email referrals. Most self-publishers are not in the system.

Some claim that they can provide THE mailing list of people who “want” you to email your book information. In reality, these “customers” aren’t expecting your product. Your information is sent to folks who have no idea of who you are or why they should buy your book.
Jeff was burned by many of the bad marketing ideas. He followed their advice only to find himself low on money and patience.
A little truth
There is money to be made providing great books to customers in niche industries.
Jeff started Red Bike Publishing by writing and self publishing a book to help people get their ISP security certification.
Traditional publishers couldn’t market to my small niche and he received many letters of rejection. They weren’t rejecting his product, but the small market. However, he learned to built a good business selling books to people who want to earn their certification.
Self publishing can be a very lucrative choice. Traditional publishers can’t afford to produce books for only 3500 clients. However, the niche author and thrive on small numbers.
From the author
Remember, your niche could be too small for publishers to venture into. Even if all the customers bought books, there wouldn’t be enough sales to warrant the huge financial, time and resource commitment required of a traditional publisher. This is a great opportunity because your market is protected. You have a built in audience with no competition. All you have to do is commit to the project, organize your thoughts, complete a manuscript, edit the manuscript and publish it.
I’ll demonstrate two methods of publishing your efforts and make big sales. None of these suggestions involve getting your book in bookstores, signing with major publishing companies or a success model involving a lot of wasted effort trying to replicate traditional publishing or traditional marketing efforts. The premise; you are writing for a niche, you’ve already found your audience.
A familiar saying, “Necessity is the Mother of Invention” describes that a need comes before a product. Someone recognized the lack of a product and without successfully finding satisfaction, they met the need with their own invention. Many become wealthy and famous providing what they themselves found the world to lack. I have helped other professionals by providing practice tests and boosting the confidence of others who desire a security certification. Before I took my certification exam, I looked around for leadership. I found it was up to me to study for and pass the examination. So, I began to invent my own study program.
The ideas I developed were not conventional in the specialized security market. However, I had learned from college, previous military and life experience, how to set goals and establish a way to reach those goals. With a lack of publication in the area, I went about touching, experiencing, and researching everything I could about the certification. I volunteered for extra jobs at work (related to the certification) and took notes of my progress.
Have a great idea, product or book? Before people buy, they need to trust you.
Perhaps you are like Jeff. You have a great idea for a book or idea, but need the little push to get it started. To sell books, products and ideas, you have to build influence and credibility.
A few years ago, Jeff was trying to follow-up on some work. He called a fellow professional for information. This person did not want to speak with him because they did not know who Jeff was. He vowed that within five years, that he would be an expert in the field …
Jeff made plan and achieved results in two years
Now, he is the author and publisher for niche security topics. Jeff teaches the Industrial Security Management Course at University Of Alabama Huntsville and am the author of the “go to” book DoD Security Clearance and Contracts Guidebook. After three years as a publisher, he can honestly say that “I’ve got it down”.

Self-publishing is a respected avenue for authors. Traditional publishing doesn’t always meet niche industry needs. Even if all the customers bought books, there wouldn’t be enough sales to warrant the huge financial, time and resource commitment required of a traditional publisher. This is a great opportunity because niche markets have a built in audience with little to no competition. These markets may consist of only a few thousand people and have needs that aren’t being directly met by traditional publishers. That’s where you come in. This is different from other self-publishing books. Marketing in a niche is trickier than when offered to more generalized audiences.
Get Rich in a Niche will show you how to apply lessons from successful marketing techniques the author has used and without added business costs. Whether or not you are engaged in a business, you can begin a publishing company or writing career with little upfront costs. You can simply engage already available resources such as your computer, internet provider and desktop publishing software. If you already have the basics, then you can begin immediately and develop a great business without going into debt. Let’s dispel some myth’s to help you understand why it’s important for a niche expert like you to embrace self-publishing.
