Identifying the best place to sell eBooks is one of the most important things for potential eBook sellers looking for a source of stable income. There are many sellers who are convinced that ClickBank is the most useful place for a venture like this. Of course, there are others who disagree and say that if you want to create an eBook and sell it easily, Amazon is the best place for you. Most experts in this field agree that the best way to sell an eBook is closely related to the niche of your eBook and the audience you are trying to get.
If you select ClickBank, you will actually select a network of affiliates that will try to sell your eBook/s. It is their duty to create websites, social media profiles, and marketing campaigns. You have absolutely no financial involvement in their activities (you don’t have to invest in anything). The only downside is that you will have to pay a certain amount of money for every sale they make. This financial reward is different and it usually depends on the popularity of your eBook. There are eBook sellers on ClickBank that promise 60% of the value of their book to affiliates while others are offering only 5%.
Amazon and eBay are two other online marketplaces where you can offer your eBooks. Keep in mind that you can create your own eBook and sell it or try to sell other people’s work, but only if you have the reseller rights. Both eBay and Amazon have thousands of active users and that’s what makes them so attractive.
In the recent period, many marketers say that one of the best places to sell eBooks is on a privately owned website. This claim makes sense because by selling eBooks on your own website, you will get 100% commission for every product you sell. But, this also means that you will have to put extra effort to sell your eBooks – you have to create a website, take care of the marketing campaigns etc. If you have extra time and you think that selling eBooks can be your primary job, then investing a website is the right thing to do.
Finally, the best place where you can sell eBooks depends on the price/volume ratio. Do you want to sell more books at a lower price or fewer books at a high price?
Think about all these questions before starting a business like this.
