How Many eBooks Will You Write This Year?

I recently got an eBook from Marlon Sanders, a great Internet Marketer that I’ve been following for many years. His program is called “The Writer’s Secret” and it’s basically one eBook that tells his philosophy for selling eBooks.

Marlon claims that he can usually release a new eBook to his list every 1-2 months, and that eBooks are his main source of income.

The eBooks he sells are often turned into different products and are not called “eBooks”, for example, he has several tutorial-types of programs called “Dashboards” that are basically web pages with little icons where you can follow a step-by-step plan for starting your online business. Each icon takes you to a web page where you can read about the particular step.… Read More »

How To Create And Sell Information Products

A lot of people ask me: what kind of product can I sell on my website?

I personally have had the most success with selling information products, as I find them to be the most profitable as well as the easiest to manage.

My only focus here is to show you how to create and sell information products (as opposed to consumable items such as food, cosmetics, or appliances). Let’s take a look at the different types of information products you can create and sell.

5 Ways To Beat The Economy

How to Protect Your eBooks From Illegal Downloads

Stopping People From Illegally Sharing Your Work

The other day, I realized that one of my main books had been shared illegally on the Internet. Anyone could just search for it and find it the first page of Google, and download it without paying.

Luckily, I was able to contact the owner of the website and sort out the situation.

But some other times, I’m not so lucky and there’s not much I can do to prevent some unscrupulous people from sharing my copyrighted material.

If you’re thinking of writing and selling your own ebooks, you’ve probably wondered about this issue. How can you prevent people from illegally sharing your work?

Before I answer this question, let me give you my point of view on copyright issues.… Read More »

Why the iPad and eBooks Will Be HUGE

In the last two weeks, I’ve been following very closely the launch of the Apple Tablet, unoriginally called “iPad”.

Unless you’ve been living under a cave, you know that there’s been a lot of hype around this tablet computer. In fact, one columnist at the Wall Street Journal said that “the last time there was so much excitement around a tablet, the 10 commandments were written on it!”
