Thematic Analysis for Self-Published Authors

See also how to summarize books for use with your PKM system (Personal Knowledge Management) using Thematic Analysis and KDSPY Pro on any non-fiction book on Amazon here.

As a self-published author, it can be challenging to create a successful book that resonates with your target audience.

However, by performing a thematic analysis on bestselling books within your niche or genre, you can gain valuable insights into what makes these books successful…

… and then use this knowledge to improve your own.

Here are 3 key benefits of thematic analysis:

1. Understanding of your target market

Thematic analysis allows you to identify the major themes and topics explored in successful books within your niche.

By analyzing these themes and topics, you can better understand your target audience’s interests, questions, challenges, concerns, and pain points.

This knowledge can help you tailor your book to meet the needs of your readers better, making your book more appealing and engaging.

2. Learn from successful frameworks

Bestselling books often follow a specific framework or structure that resonates with readers.

By analyzing these frameworks, you can identify the elements that make them successful and model them for your book.

For example, if successful books within your niche often include case studies or personal anecdotes, you may consider incorporating these elements into your book to make it more engaging and relatable.

3. Differentiate your book from competitors

Performing a thematic analysis can help you identify common themes and topics explored in bestselling books within your niche.

By understanding these commonalities, you can differentiate your book by exploring new themes and topics — not covered extensively by your competitors.

This can help your book stand out in a crowded market and appeal to readers looking for something new and unique.
