After you have finished researching and writing your e-book, it is time to reap the sweet fruit of your labour and make money through selling your ebook. We will show you how to sell ebooks the right way in this guide.
Step 1: Know Your Target Buyer
Keep your target buyer in mind when you market your e-book.
For example, the advertisement of an ebook dealing with children’s nutrition would gain no traction on a business or banking website. It would be most apt to advertise or talk about this ebook in a kindergarten or school website.
Step 2: Attract The Buyer With a Preview
How would you attract and convince your buyer to buy your ebook?
This task would be simple if you let the prospective buyer read the preface or the first few pages of the book. You could even have the buyer sneak a peek into interesting sections of the book.
Step 3: Price It Right
The price of your e-book can be one of the major factors that affect its sale. It is necessary to price it right. How you price your e-book also depends on how established or well-known you are as an ebook writer. This is determined by the sale and popularity of your previous e-books.
We suggest pricing your e-books very competitively if you are new in this industry, and if you are established writer chances are people would be willing to pay a higher price to read your e-book. Keeping this in mind be price-wise.
Regardless, we suggest pricing your e-books competitively if you are new to the industry.
Step 4: Spread Word Using Online Platforms/ Social Media
