Well, given the fact that I promoted an e-book on
this site, I should probably offer my view on selling e-books. Please
let me know how you feel about buying an informational or free e-book
First, e-books can be very profitable in the sense
that you can purchase them and immediately download it and read the
information that you are so eager to know. On the other hand, I have
had some customers who had trouble downloading the e-book, some who
want a hard copy because they have no way to print the e-book or they
don't want to use a credit card. The latter group is very small but
with customer service being most important, I felt the need to mention
E-books range in price from less than $10 up to
and exceeding $200. It would seem that for $200 you should expect a
hard copy? Consider the profit when selling an e-book at the upper end
of cost range! The key however is having the sales to ensure the
profits. Read on.
For an e-book to be successful, it needs to
fulfill a specific need, usually of information someone is looking for.
To me that needs to be very specific information; i.e. niche
information that a certaion niche market is looking for. If your e-book
answers your customers specific needs/questions, then you have a winner
in terms of e-book sales.
There are good and bad points of e-book sales. I
am sure they will be around for a while as the technology is beyond
paper books and why not offer an immediate downloadable product? A
consideration in selling an e-book is whether it is your primary
product or if it is "used" as a front end product which then may lead
to further "back end" sales.
The e-book on my site in my opinion tells nearly
all one needs to know about the niche information you may be looking
for. I also show that I have a "back end" product. So, in that sense,
there is nothing really secret in the marketing approach taken. It is
all about how much knowledge you may feel you need; if the e-book
covers it, cool. If it doesn't, you may need more information.
Marketing on the internet requires methods that
one really needs as much information as you can get when starting out.
In that sense, a solid course that covers even the littelest details of
internet marketing would be my suggestion.
Conclusion: E-books are here to stay; there are
new ideas coming along which I'll leave for a future review. Promoting
an e-book that answers a customers specific needs or questions well,
would surely be a winner. I can assist you if you have expertise and
wish to sell that knowledge on your own website.This could be e-book
for children or e-book for college or whatever your niche is!
E-books are a key part of any online business.
