    Hello bhw brothers !

    Today i want to write some words on how you can earn 400$ per month just from one micro EMD website selling your own book,
    my website informations :

    Keyword LOCAL SEARCH 12000
    CPC 0.3$ very low !
    COMPETITION :Medium
    TOPIC : Health
    Country targeted : France
    Website language : french
    Curent google position : #3
    DAILY VISITORS : 50-80 visitors / day

    I ranked my website & monetize it at the first time using adsense, which brings me (1-2$/day)
    because the website it totally informative, i ask my self how can i profit from these visitors instead of few cents of adsence ? ....So i simply decide to write nice book instead of promoting something else of others...
    so i start collecting data about my niche i've organized them well and wrote a nice PDF book
    about 20 pages but very informative in my niche...the name of the book is my keyword so exactly what the visitors searching for ! (No book found over the INTERNET exactly with my keyword)
    i promote it in my website and that's it !
    what i got :
    about 1-4 sells per day
    book price : ONLY 4.99$ (cheap what 20 pages really costs :D).
    The website now brings me about (5 - 20$/ day) without counting the cents of adsense.
    so when you are searching for the keywords, you can find profitable ones even the CPC IS VERY LOW, don't ignore it if there is a chance to monetize it selling your own book !

    So what do you think if you have 10 Websites promoting your own 10 books...

    Good luck to all bhw members, don't give up & you'll succeed...

    Cheers !

    Nice work OP... this is a pretty basic idea that works out well for a lot of people on the "other" forum full of gurus.

    1) Choose micro niche with high commercial intent and informational / question-based queries

    2) Write (or pay someone to write) a short eBook answering the top 10/20/50 questions that come up in long-tail searches in the niche

    3) Create a nice website for the eBook, sell it for something nice and cheap, like $5.

    4) Rank it at the top for your keyword

    If many of the people around here stopped trying their "methods" that produce <$1 a day for 8+ hours work and actually built something of value, they'd have long-term revenues from it. But the good news is: they won't. More for you!

    This post has been an eye opener for me. Now I can think of my own ebooks instead of just adsense and amazon. Thanks a lot.

    thanks bro
    I'm really interested in your story. I am french too and tried a similar method, I propose an informative ebook, but contrary to you I use a YT video to drive trafic (around 100-150 views/day). But in 6 months I only succeeded 4 sales... Finally I conclued that the problem did'nt come from me but from the behavior of french audience. Your example shows that I'm going wrong from the begining. May you PM your sale page Please ? And by the way where are you from ? Personally I come from Paris ^^

    I watched a good webinar recently about making an ebook and selling it on Amazon. Very simple set up but the webinar went into ways to get the traffic and rankings in amazons search listing to get big sales. I wish I had taken note of the link, might interest some people in the thread.

    Often the most simple ideas are the best.

    Start pumping out ads on social media sites like facebook, and YouTube and buy some ppc campaigns on Google Adwords to boost rank and traffic. This method is older than time itself, but it will always work. This is how the "guru" make the big money. This is just on a little scale compared to theirs, and when done right you make money. Just be sure your niche will spend money on your book, and if not change to a niche that will spend money on a book or something cool like this.

    Have you tried putting it on Amazon and ranking the amazon page yet? What sales processing do you use?

    You don't have to use click bank and CB gives 75% to your affiliates, This is set by you seeing as it's just a cheap E-Book you'd just use another method to sell it haven't researched yet, So I'm not sure how. But when something is cheap it sells fast, Think low profile high sales it works wonders.

    thanks all for your comments i'll try to answer some questions,
    4 months ago.

    it takes about 20 days to be in the first page,
    12100 local searchs/ month.
    SEO strategy : not something hard, few quality backlinks + some directory submissions few s.bookmarks, the essential thing it to choose good keyword with easy or relatively easy competition (trafictravis)...for me in the first 10 google results i chould find at least 3 websites with 0-10 backlinks & some long bad links with sometimes not all my keyword in + few sites with PR0 so i know that my keyword here is profitable & i can rank my site easily so i just need just to take action and go on !
    No, for sales processing, i use a paypal script .
    these few pages of my ebook which costs 5 bucks don't woth clickbank you need just good traffic to your site + a low price of the ebook so for example from 50-80 quality visitors (who really search for what you provide!) + low price of the ebook = Good Sells and this is what you chould follow.
    50-80 visitors + 5 bucks = 1-5 sells , 50-80 visitors + 27 bucks= Zero in general up to 1-2 /week not good. the idea of this method is to provide nice cheap ebook to quality visitors, that's it.

    i've done all things myself, i've used GOOGLE KEYWORD + EMDomainFinder (which is mine :D you can find it somewhere here in the forum it's free) + TRAFICTRAVIS, thats it !

    Good luck !
