eBooks and their money making potential

I’ve been writing eBooks for a long time now on a variety of topics- business, health and wellness, and even a Feng Shui eBook for a client who was getting into the Feng Shui business. I’ve always enjoyed writing them and they are a great way to make money.

eBooks are often ghostwritten, in that their writers do not take credit for the material written. Not a problem- if you don’t mind your name not appearing on the site, then ghostwriting jobs do pay well. Novice freelance writers can charge anywhere between $10-$30 per page, and that’s only for the writing. If you’ve been asked to design it as well, then you can go above this amount, bearing in mind that you will have to deliver a top quality design with a linked TOC (Table of Content).

If you’ve never written an eBook before, I recommend buying some books or visiting some sites before you start bidding for a job. One of my favourites is a book created by Jim Edwards, and Joe Vitale. Jim is a journalist and writer and have worked on a number of eBooks. Joe Vitale is a legend in himself, having helped over 200 authors write their books. Both these gentlemen have years of writing experience, so when they put their heads together and came up with, How to write and publish your own Outrageously Profitable eBook in as little as 7 days, you know it’s a winner.

In this ebook, you’ll learn:
-The secrets to creating an ebook that sells like crazy
-How to quickly avoid the #1 Mistake authors make that causes them to take months or years to write a book... so you can finish in just a few days.
-The absolute "bullet-proof" best ebook to write and sell online -FAST.
-The "right" way to publish your ebook so virtually everyone connected to the Internet can buy it and read it.
-3 *Proven* methods for turning out a highly profitable ebook in record time• The "7 Commandments" of ebook formatting

You can order your copy of How to write and publish your own Outrageously Profitable eBook in as little as 7 days here, and remember, there’s a return guarantee if you decide that ebook writing is not for you.

Once you’ve written your ebook, if it’s for a client, he/she will most likely want it delivered in a word or Pdf format, which they directly upload on their sites. On the other hand, if you’ve written your ebook to sell it for profit, you’ll need to self publish it. One great site to visit is eBook Mall Publishing Center. Here, they’ll help you with formatting and publishing your ebook, so it’s ready to be uploaded and sold!
