Definition of Low Hanging Fruit
The topic for this post is to define low hanging fruit. While it might seem obvious on its face, we are now speaking about books. Books are sold through online business, and your keywords need to target low hanging fruit. If you can reach up while walking through the orchard and pick an apple, of course that is the definition of low hanging fruit.
Growing up around my grandfather’s fruit growing operation in Washington, I know a little about fruit. The low fruit if it is all picked requires someone to climb up and pick the high hanging fruit. These days, with oranges, they shake it all down and pick it up. Unsure if they still pick apples from a ladder. But the images from my childhood are used here.
When we speak of low hanging fruit here, we are concerned with competition. Again we think toward keyword targeted content which brings traffic to our website. Well written content with information interesting to as well as valuable to your readers will hold their interest and bring them back to your website again.
Low Hanging, Regards Keyword Competition
Search Engines record the number of average hits per month for a given keyword or phrase, if rated on the first page in the search engine. For instance a keyword that get 5,000 hits per month might sound good. However, such a word might have 250 pages in competition for the first spot.
Your book will only be seen by those who navigate 25 pages deep while browsing. Never happen. Keywords must be searched in a keyword search tool for efficiency’s sake. The target here is getting your book in the worlds’ view. We are not trying to grow mushrooms in the dark. We want to sell books. The world must see the book.
Targeting keywords with under 100 competing pages is picking the low hanging fruit. Once you have targeted the low hanging fruit, bringing traffic to your site, the books will sell. You get ranked in your own right, by building quality content and your keywords will reflect in the hundreds or thousands, when word is out.
I published my book, Misquoting Logic, by Chris Queen, in early 2017. Without a clue I paid $100.00 (annual) for a website.“They” (rarely know what they are talking about) told me to post a lot of blog posts. Without targeting keywords and writing targeted content I posted 300 blog posts in the three years.
Not a total failure, I did manage to gain 1600 followers at my peak. I still have 600 plus followers on that website, however, I did not sell many books. So by my reckoning I placed a bet, against all odds, and lost more than I won. Sort of a hip shot rather than taking careful aim.
A more intelligent approach is to listen to the gambler’s wisdom. If you go push the button for Wix or worpress.com or wordpress.org etc, you’ll be taking that same hip shot and rolling the dice for dumb luck.
First, I want you to know I have taken this recommendation myself. This, recommendation which reached me, after spinning my wheels fruitlessly for almost three years. I took the advice of my Publisher, Angela Hoy, who directed me to Weathy Affiliate. Angela publishes Writer’s Weekly a weekly published, E zine, with thousands of readers.
She and her husband Richard own Booklocker.com a Print On Demand (POD) Self Publishing Company. She has a spotless reputation in that industry. Her company pays the highest royalties among (POD) self publishing companies.
Her E zine, Writer’s Weekly, a service to writers, where she also exposes publishing companies lacking integrity and connects freelance writers with freelance writing opportunities. Angela, has often predicted the failure of these unscrupulous characters and their inferior publishing plans based on their inferior character.
If you inquire she will speak with you directly by E mail, herself, and I am happy I found her. They do not publish every manuscript they are presented with, preferring to maintain a quality profile in the industry.
This benefits her authors because people in publishing know her and her quest for integrity and quality publishing, printing and service. I know her on a professional basis and after two books, one traditionally published, Misquoting Calculus, by Chris Queen, through Abuzz Press, their traditional publishing division, I am proud to recommend her.
