I am writing an eBook for my blog - Have some questions

Discussion in 'Blogging' started by shareurlinks, Dec 15, 2010.

    I have written a few ebooks which are given away for free, I have now decided to write an ebook which I am going to sell from my blog. I just have a few questions as I am new to eBook selling.

    1. How much Should I charge for my eBook, I was thinking around £7?
    2. How many words or pages should a eBook contain for £7
    3. How do I sell the eBook, I understand that I have to create a paypal button and then take them to a URL after purchase, i Know the URL should be hard to guess, like http://jgblogging.com/eBook/HGYJ780003ammhg/ghsimcm.pdf
    But how do they download it, can they download it from going to that address.
    SEMrush
    Thanks
    John

    (By the way, that URL is made up, I will not work)

    I am currently writing it, and the current title is
    "Earn an Income Online by Blogging"

    So as you can probably work out, the topic is making money from blogging.

    First of all inorder to write a Successful e-book dont ever hurry up.think it as a milestone.So always do it step by step.it might seem a big task but breaking down into modules will really help

    1) I would recommend to lower the price to £5 later you can increase once it becomes popular.
    2) A minimum of 60+ pages and anything between 60-80 is ok.
    3)You have chosen a common topic so try to write it in fresh with a new perspective then will stand out from the rest of the crowd
    4) You can sell your ebook at Amazon
    check these detailed instructions on how to sell e-book at amazon i goggled it for you.

    Thanks very much, your answer actually helped, 60 pages is alot more than I wrote in my free ones :p

    I am going to aim to get around 7-10 pages done per week, so maybe 1 page per day.
    Although I am not to keen on spending the $125 for the ISPN Number, maybe I will sell the ebook at $5 via paypal for now, once got enough invest in the ISPN number.

    Thanks very much

    I am trying to think of a real unique twist to the eBook to make it stand out... Hard though :)
