You have successfully written your ebook and are now ready to make some cash. What comes next? Following you will find some effective ways of selling your ebook and possibly making lots of money. An excellent option when choosing how to sell your ebook is that you can sell your ebook on an online bookstore. There are many good online bookstores available that will sell your ebook without a joining fee.
If your ebook is accepted, the bookstore will expect you to send it as a pdf file complete with cover artwork. Many bookstores will offer to do this service for you for a small fee if you do not have the appropriate software to do it yourself. These fees will vary depending on the store you choose. Fees can be as low as 10 percent to as high as 40 percent.
It seems that the norm for these fees is approximately 30 percent. For example, if you sell your ebook for ten dollars, while keeping with the 30 percent norm, the bookstore will give you seven dollars as your earnings and keep three dollars as their commission. This may seem a bit high but you have to remember that they did most of the work in selling the book for you.
Therefore, without their help, your book would not have sold at all and you would not have made a dime. Most companies handle all the bookkeeping themselves and will send you a check on a monthly basis. For instance, if you sell ten books in one month at the rates mentioned above, you will receive a check for seventy dollars. This is your earnings for the month from that particular bookstore.
Your check may seem small after fees are subtracted but keep in mind that you may sell your ebook on several online bookstores simultaneously, therefore, greatly increasing your chance at making a profit. Another option in selling your ebook is to create your own website and promote the ebook yourself. When choosing this option, you will need to set up an account with an online company to have the ability to accept credit cards, online checks, paypal and other payment methods. You will then need to promote the site. You can do this by submitting to all the major search engines. It would also be wise to include some articles you have written about the subject of your ebook and submit them to article directories.
A keyword-rich article can go a long way in promoting your ebook. It grabs the attention of the search engines and helps to steer traffic to your site. Many people opt for PPC, (pay per click) advertising campaigns. This method has proven to be quite successful for many authors. Of course, research on this subject matter is always recommended. After you have set up your site, enabled the abilities to accept orders for your ebook, set up and advertising campaign, you can sit back, relax and enjoy the benefits of selling your ebook 24 hours a day.
