Selling your Ebooks On The Net Is Easy And ProfitablePosted on: January 16, 2014
If you are creative and have a flair for writing in an effective manner, you can make money by writing and then selling your e-books on the internet. There is no doubt that hard copies also sell, but to write and then to find a publisher on easy terms is not that easy. Again, because of the cost involved, published book is always costlier than an e-book. Even then if you are prepared to do the hard work and get the book published, you need to sell it in good numbers to make a profit. You may be forced to take help of the internet even then. If that is so, why not write the book in a digital form instead of wasting money on getting the hard copies of your book prepared. This is the age of computers and in effect, an age of communication where internet is the basic tool for communicating and telling the world about you and your product.
Today any business, whether it is offline or online, needs help from Internet to grow and to get more sales. This is because of the vast reach of the internet. Physical, hard copies of your book will be localized and not many people will know about them except perhaps a limited area or population. But if you have a book that has been digitalized half of your worries are over and only the marketing part remains. Internet is one powerful medium visited by millions of people everyday. Of course they do not come to internet to specifically buy or sell anything. But if they get across something that might be of interest to them, they are compelled to have a look at it and then return to see if it is fairly priced and if it makes sense to buy it for themselves.
It is not necessary to have your own blog or a website to sell your e-book. In fact, you would even then require advertising about your book on other websites that draw a huge amount of traffic. It is very frustrating to have a very good product and yet not getting customers to even tell about it. But today it is not so as there are websites like eBay and Amazon which are like supermarkets on the web. They are visited by hundreds of thousands of customer’s everyday and goods and services are sold at very attractive prices on these sites. They have become a brand unto themselves and customers are assured of good quality and fair price on these sites.
One important thing to keep in mind while posting your e-book on sites like these is to have a very attractive cover on your book. You must understand that the customers get to see only the covers and a few teasing lines about what is inside for them. So make sure that the cover design of your e-book is bright and colorful and is very eye catching which compels the visitors to buy it.
