How to Make Money Selling eBooks

If you’ve written a book and are choosing to sell it as an e-book, rather than the traditional paper copy, there are a couple things you need to keep in mind about selling it.

Consider your target audience. They will either need an e-book reader, such as Amazon’s Kindle or Sony’s PRS-500, or they will need a computer which might require additional software (such as Adobe Acrobat) to read your book.

There are several advantages to selling your book in an e-book format. First of all, they are easier to self-publish than a book in a paper format. Generally, they can be emailed directly to the buyer, or downloaded from a Web site that stores your book for you.

This is a big plus to a buyer who might appreciate the instant access to your book. Buyers might also like that they can adjust the font to their likeness. Some readers prefer large-print books, and if your book is in e-book format, you don’t need two different copies printed to reach the market that wants the larger font size.

Do an online search to find where you can reach your target market and consider leaving messages in chat rooms and forums to let readers know you have a book they might be interested in. Some sites such as let you list your book for sale for free, but you are limited to 30 days at a time and have to remember to renew it after it expires.
