Make Money Online with eBook Marketing

An eBook, as defined by Wikipedia, is "an electronic (or digital) equivalent of a conventional printed book." As the internet becomes more and more popular, so to does the transmission of digital information such as eBooks. Naturally, most of us want to find a way to profit from this new trend. If you are one of these people who are looking to make money online with eBooks, you have come to the right place.

Understanding and mastering these six areas of an eBay auction are absolutely essential to maximize the success and profitability of your auctions.
There are three basic ways to make money with eBooks. Writing your own eBooks, selling someone else's eBooks, or both.

Writing Your Own Ebook

First, let's take a look at writing your own eBooks. It's not all that difficult and if you have ever written an essay for a school assignment you have all the prerequisites already. You don't have to be an expert on your eBook subject, although it helps, as most information can be found online and in your local library. You don't even have to be a good writer as most word processors have grammar and spell checking tools.
So, once you decide that you want to write your own eBook, you need to find a "niche" market or subject to write about. The more specific you make your eBook, the better it will sell.

Your next step is to complete an outline and table of contents. Having an outline will help you organize your thoughts and ensure that your new eBook flows well and keeps the reader focused. Once your initial outline is done (you can modify it as you go) you need to start your research. Get a pen and paper and spend several hours researching web sites related to each and every chapter of your eBook. Taking notes with a pen and paper will help ensure that you do not run into plagiarism issues. Be sure to spend a few hours in your local library as well. Research is one of the most important steps, even if you consider yourself an expert on your topic.

Once your research is completed, you are ready to begin writing. Use your outline to keep your efforts organized and on topic. Start with a rough draft and then get your friends and family to proof read it. Never do your one proof reading and editing!

Once your eBook is written, ad some nice graphics and a cover page. Compile the eBook into an eBook format (I suggest PDFs) and you are finished. You should not have a unique and original eBook that you can sell.
Selling Someone Else's eBooks - Many of us don't have the "author" bug in us and the prospect of writing our own eBook reminds us of visiting the dentist. Do not fear, there are literally thousands of authors out there that need help selling there eBooks.

Selling eBooks is just another off-shoot of affiliate marketing. Sign up with an number of affiliate programs and sell the eBooks you want using your own website, email lists, or even word of mouth. Many people make their living selling eBooks using affiliate programs. You can read more about making money with affiliate marketing here.
Writing and Selling Your One eBook - This is actually a lot harder that people think. Most of us are good at writing or marketing, very few of us are good at both. However, if you feel you can handle both roles you can make even more money.

Use the section above to write your own eBook. Read out affiliate marketing section to better understand how affiliates work. Then, sign up as an advertiser with any number of affiliate programs.
As an advertiser, you tell the affiliate networks what price you want your new eBook sold for and what commission you want to offer your affiliates. In addition, you will want to make your own landing pages for your eBook so that your affiliates can send new customers to your eBook. We truly want to ensure that you make money with eBooks.
