I’m a freelance writer by trade. Quite by accident, I dipped my toes in the self-publishing waters in 2004. That year, I wrote my first ebook. Since then, I’ve gone on to write over 50 more. I got serious about making money (real money) as an ebook writer in 2009. It paid off. In 2010, I earned over half my income from e-products (ebooks and e-classes) I created. Following are some frequently asked questions I’ve received about how to write an ebook.
I’ve been a freelance writer since 1993 and have been writing and selling ebooks online since 2004. Megasites like Amazon and Barnes and Noble have revolutionized the self-publishing industry, making it easier than ever for wannabe authors to make money selling ebooks online without ever involving an outside entity like an agent or publisher. With so many jumping into the self-publishing waters, one of the issues some confront is whether or not to use their own name, or go by a pen name.
I’ve been a freelance writer since 1993. Well over a decade later, in 2004, I published my first ebook. I’m a firm believer that if you have the skills to “write to sell”, (as all freelance writers do), then you should put those skills to use to diversify your income.
To date, I’ve published over 50 ebooks and for the first time in 2010, the income I made from them (combined with affiliate marketing) surpassed what I earned as a freelance writer.
Without any controversy, people of different races will always hunger for this one thing: information. As a result, information marketers seek to package and sell pieces of information on certain topics such as health, marriage, education and arts. That is what it simply means to make money online with e-books.
We will provide you with the guidelines you will require to be successful as an author online.
Thanks to megasites like Amazon and Barnes and Noble, many wannabe writers are turning to self-publishing to realize their dreams. They don’t have to wait for large publishing houses to dole out contracts to them. Not only can they self-publish their books very easily, they get to keep most of the profits as well. And the kicker is, they don’t have to sell nearly as many copies to make a good living.
One of my favorite ways to promote my business is to give away free ebooks. The reason is that there are so many ways to do this, and it’s a great way for the subcriber to determine if you can provide a solution to his/her problem.
I’ve been writing and selling ebooks online since 2004. But, it was only in the last couple of years that sales dramatically increased (eg, recently I earned $1,078.65 in three days in ebook sales).
Please Note: I do not, and have never condoned the use of PLR articles because so many people use them incorrectly, which means they don’t rewrite them. Don’t use them. This article deals with using PLR ebook packages to create ebooks and other products, but you WILL NOT use articles.
Whether you are selling your own products or someone else’s, you really can’t go wrong with free reports. The reason is that most people jump on the internet looking for information. This is a way to provide them with that information. (It’s also a good way to make money online for free because, if you do it right, it won’t cost you anything, and your ebook could go viral.)
Businesses of all sizes are expanding with ebooks. An ebook is a paperless book in digital format that you can download to your computer, handheld or other reader device. It can be read by using a software program like Adobe (for .pdf formats) or Microsoft Word.
