Make Money From EBooks
What is an EBook?
EBooks are electronic books (softcopy) that are written by authors or consultants. The knowledge in the book can be from the author’s experience, other peoples experience gotten from an interview with the professional. It can even be a biography or bibliography of people that have impacted the society.
This is one of the online businesses that have made 5 figure incomes to many authors. To make money on the internet you need to create a solution and sell it. This is the much loved model for bloggers and content creators everywhere and for a good reason
- it’s pretty easy to write a 60-80 page ebook
- not hard to sell say $500 worth a month through online networking, guest posting and your own SEO optimized blog, and
- well you get to keep a large whack of the pie after paying affiliates. Hells yeah!
The things to consider
Watch out for niches where the target audience is barely willing to pay $5 for an ebook; hello Minimalism niche! The more people can afford your book the more they will be prepared to release money to buy. Then you can release your high priced, secret information book to the committed and subscribed customers
Packaging and selling
It’s always a good idea to repackage your eBook so you can sell it on Amazon (as a Kindle-only version) and iBooks, since a lot of people will be searching there too.
If you do add this sales point to the mix, make sure you price under $10 on these sites, as this seems to be the maximum pricing point for these audiences and allows you to get a higher percentage cut of the pie per Amazon and Apples rules.
Oh and don’t worry, people that buy your ebook through these avenues 9 times out of 10 wouldn’t have bought it otherwise so you’re not losing any money by cheapening the price. You can consider marketing the book under a different name though.
But if you really want to make money from an ebook then it’s all about selling it to your following and getting other bloggers and email marketers to affiliate sale for you like crazy.
Whether you hit up affiliates one by one, and/or start listing your products on affiliate marketplaces like Clickbank, the secret is simply connecting with as many people as possible, giving them all the tools they need to sell and hustling like a mad man!
You can also talk about your eBook on a YouTube channel
Don’t waste time in thinking about what you need to do, go to Google keywords (search on Google) and type the keywords on any idea that comes to your mind … it could be How to so something, entertainment etc. The keywords that have the highest numbers or searches are the ones that will drive traffic to your eBook title.
Choose one as your title and research on it. Gather the data and eureka! You have written a solution to someone’s problem.
All you need to do now is go on social medias and advertise your book, you can give a mini form of the book for free as an appetizer so that those that go through it will be interested in getting the full gist and hence pay you for it.
