Selling ebooks and stock photos?

    Hey there. I am new to digital point. About six months ago, I purchased stock photos, and e-books. All my products have resell rights attached. My question is, where to start selling them? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    Good question! I think it depends on who your market is. What are the ebooks about? What are the stock photos of? I do know a lot of stock photo platforms exists, so that might be an area to research. As for the ebooks, I think that needs to be more targeted to what niche they are about.

    Find out where the people who want the kind of products you offer hang out. Go there. Have conversations with those people and learn their wants and needs that relate to your product niche. Give them information that will help them satisfy those wants and needs.

    When they start asking you for more help or information you can mention your products. But not before they ask for more.

    Can ebooks now be sold on eBay as digital downloads? Last time I listed books there they had to be physically mailed on a disk. Been a while.

    Well...I don't know about selling stock photos. For e-books, I would use a create a Facebook Profile and add responsive people in your "niche" as friends. Do a few engagement posts like "If you see this I believe in you and hope you achieve all your dreams." Post in groups and provide values. Go comment on friend's wall, reply to messages, etc... (Facebook Algorithm). Add 25 - 100 people per day. Interact with their personal profile by loving and commenting on their posts first then start talking to them on messenger. Try to talk to 15 - 20 new people per day. Write original messages to each person since Facebook can detect if you copy and paste messagesOnce you reach 1000+ friends, offer your eBook for a price, maybe $1 or $7, depends on you. Do a post like "How would you like an eBook on 11 Tricks to Eliminate Fear Of Failure for $1...

    Anyways this is just what I would do. It will take some time but you got to look at it in the long terms and since you have reseller's right, it's all profit...

    Good luck!

    Yeah. They have that option now. Here are the instructions for selling digital products on eBay:

    Go to the eBay website and click "Sell" at the top of the page. Enter your eBay User ID and password, then click "Sign in." Click "Browse Categories," then select "Everything Else." Click "Information Products" and "Other." EBay requires that you only list digital goods in this category.

    You can use Etsy or even Amazon.

    I have a few books listed in the Kindle store. One major reason I strayed away from eBay was that they didn't support information products via digital download at that time.

    Interesting to know this about eBay but I'm not sure it's interesting enough at this point to lure me back.
