But there's always something holding you back, you don't know how to write a book, you don't know how to sell online, or a million and one different obstacles you can think of. Well here are my 5 tips to make your online bookshop and publishing empire more than just a dream.
1. you don't know how to write an e-book, or article for yourself?
There's a quick and simple way to get around this. Turn Other People's Information Formats Into A Publication You could get permission from a publisher to transcribe an audio or video into a print or electronic publication. You would have nothing to write and you could just pay them an up-front fee or royalties on your sales. Another alternative is to Compile A Publication - You could allow other authors and experts to write the publication for you in exchange for free publicity or other incentives. You would simply contact the authors and experts you want and ask them to donate some content.
2. You don't know which format to use to publish your book.
There are several formats for publishing an e-book, the most common, and easily distributed is in pdf format. To make it even easier, here is a link to the Easy PDF Publishers Toolkit with all the information you need to start publishing your book. http://www.cashinonline.info/pdf Another alternative is to publish as an executable file, but this will limit your appeal to those people running a computer which can open it. The pdf is favourite because it can be read by most operating systems and computers.
3. You don't know how to setup a sales site
This is where you can use the power of the internet again, Package Your Publication With Other Products - You could ask similar but non-competing businesses to create a package deal. You would sell your publications or product together in one package deal. You would split the profit or each sells them separately for 100% of the profits.
4. Another tip for saving you doing the selling
Others Give Away Your Publication And You Charge Them For Bulk Quantities - You could have others give away your publication and you receive a bulk purchase sale. For example a business may want 100 copies of your publication to give to their employees. You could charge them a lower cost per item because of the large quantity that you're selling.
5. Make more money with each book
Sell A Branded Copy Of Your Publication - You could allow other people to sell or give away the publication as their own and charge them to place their ads in it. If it contains links to affiliate sites, offer people the opportunity to put their affiliate links in for a small fee, and if not yours will earn money when people purchase through them.
No matter what excuses you find for not starting selling your own e-book there is an answer if you really want to start.
So stop making excuses, follow these tips and start making money with your own e-books today.
