5 Experts Tips For Writing Ebooks That Sell
Creating eBooks that sell is an ART. We’ve created a ton of eBooks in the past but never sold our eBooks until recently.
Our first paid eBook was about Keyword Research. We generated over 200 sales within 10 days after launching it. We also made over $1500 in sales in the first 10 days. Here are some of the things that helped us.
Pick one topic and validate your idea
if you want to create an eBook that sells itself, you need to pick one topic. Don’t cover too many topics in one eBook as that’s a surefire way to failure. Also, take the time to validate your eBook idea using your FB groups, email lists, blog or through surveys. Start working on your eBook once you know there’s a market and people who are ready to buy what you sell.
Use your network to increase sales
Your blog, social media following, guest posts, your connections with other bloggers – everything matters when selling your eBook. Don’t hesitate to ask others for help as there are many people ready to spread the word out for your eBook.
“Ebook is something which is really very easy to create and promote. Anyone who is good at writing and have some skills in any particular area can make an ebook and sell.
You can write down your thoughts on google docs or your existing blog post can be used to convert it into an ebook using Designrr.io my favourite website to convert any web page in the ebook.
Later you can use that ebook as your lead magnet or you can offer to your existing subscribers as a bonus.
After creating an ebook you can host your ebook on kindle or on Instamojo where you can charge on per downloads.”

Write and self-publish an eBook to solving a specific problem. For example, I promoted one of my eBooks a few moments ago via a guest post. The eBook helps you increase profits through Twitter. Does it get more simple? Most bloggers do not understand Twitter, let alone driving profits through the platform.
I shared practical tips to solve that problem. Write an eBook solving a simple problem. Share simple, practical tips in the eBook. Listen to your readers. Help them solve their problems. Share value and readers see you and your eBooks in a valuable light.

“According to me first of all eBook cover is so important, people don’t know about you initially do they will attract by the cover and yes then the content is important”
“Take the time to survey your core audience to ensure your book meets their needs. We often assume we know what people want, but you never really know unless you ask.
Prior to writing my book, I used my email list to survey my subscribers. The feedback was invaluable and inspired much of the content in the book. Not to mention, it’s a great way to win over your readers. They ask. You deliver.”
“ Thanks for inviting me on this roundup post, I am honored. Recently I have created my first eBook after many hiccups. I was stopping myself to take this action for a long time and took a huge amount of time to create the first eBook.
But after the launch of the first eBook, I received very good feedback. This has helped me to gain more confidence and I have started writing my 2nd eBook.
Now let me tell you how exactly I have created the first eBook.
1) Choose a topic that can solve a major problem with your audience. My targeted audience is beginners who want to start blogging. So I chose the topic as SEO best practices so that they can understand how to do SEO that Google likes.
2) Structure the content properly so that you can narrate the entire topic in detail. You can think like writing a long blog post where you will share more insights on each topic with more proof and practical examples.
3) Create a very attractive cover so that you can attract readers. There are plenty of free tools you can use or else hire some freelancer to do that.
4) The best way to promote your eBook is through your website. I have a very engaging Facebook group where I have shared the eBook and got a very good response. I also ran a Facebook Ad to promote my eBook.
So far I have not sold any of my eBooks.But my next eBook will be paid one. Amazon is the best place to sell your eBooks. Besides that, one can also open an account in InstaMojo and sell their eBooks online.”
