It seems like everyone has an ebook they would like to sell. They are on eBay and Amazon, and even traditional books are being rewritten as ebooks. But not everyone is selling their ebooks. Here are 3 misconceptions people have about selling an ebook on the internet.
- If you put it on a website, they will come. This is not true. You must begin to market your ebook before you even begin to write it. If your ebook is for sale on an obscure website, it may be invisible to the exact people you are hoping to sell it to.
- Quality doesn’t matter. Nothing could be further from the truth. People are looking for well-written ebooks that are full of useful, accurate information.
- No matter what you write about there are people who will buy your ebook. False again. You must do your research and see what types of information people are searching for. You will need people who are hungry for the information you have and are willing and able to pay you for that information.
Do your research, find your target audience, and market your ebook to the people who will want it. By doing this you are more likely to find success on the internet.
