    Hi everyone.

    Im wondering if selling ebooks are still a good business?
    Dont worry about content, but I'd like to know if it worth to spend a couple houndred $ on adwords to sell the book.

    Where's the best place to sell it? Clickbank? e-Junkie?
    What are the best niches to sell?


    Thank you very much guysss

    No one i actually going to tell you
    the best niches, because they arent
    told, they are discovered.

    You must search for yourself to
    find a niche, where you can serve
    people and provide them with a service.

    BUt make sure its, specific.

    Here is an example of a couple of
    great lucrative niche website
    people have created out of nothing

    Yup, as long as you sell it right. People are always willing to pay for knowledge.

    Heh, Niche websites are quite possibly the best options when it comes to generating revenue quickly, one of the best ways to look up a great niche is to have a look see at Google Trends, you can quite possibly find a niche that's still waiting to be hooked on to :)

    I think the answer is Yes. I believe people are willing to pay for information. If not, the bookstores would have closed down by now.

    If your ebook is solving peoples problems or giving them answer to things they wanted to know, then yes it's profitable. Market it smartly and you should profit nicely. Market Samurai is a great niche research tool btw for nailing down profitable niches.

    Good luck

    Write about problems you face everyday and how you skip them. Find a niche and make money! Is profitable if you keep doing it

    Ebooks are still one of the best and most profitable methods of earning revenue, there is never a lack of people who want more information based on interests, try to locate niche's that are still being discovered something that the people will find more suitable for themselves :D

    I bought an e-book site a few years back. Complete with everything (articles, blog, etc)... It was hardly worth the money spent...

    Then last year I decided to write my own on the global crisis. This has been completely different and well worth the time spent on it. I've sold around 1300 copies to date so I can't complain. I guess it all depends on your niche, on your promotion, your marketing, etc.....

    Oh and I use e-junkie which works like a charm!

    Yes they are.

    If you know how to play your cards right. You can make a hefty sum from ebooks.

    Clickbank is still a good place to sell. I hardly sell there though, too lazy to get professional sales pages made and such. And I usually sell money making methods, so I sell limited copies. Heck when i try just on DigitalPoint I can make around $1000+ in a night from selling an ebook.

    It depends on the niche that you are aiming for, or perhaps you could just decide and write a book about niche marketing blogs? :p

    E-books will always be a profitable business. I mean, so long as computers and the internet remains popular.
