    Hey guys! I'm about to sell my first eBook, which is about "How to make a bebo app/game". Its my first time making an eBook, so i need some tips, do's and don'ts.

    I know a lot of eBook's get bought but then passed on for free or "resold". I'd hate this to happen to me but i suppose it happens to a lot of people. I've read about a method where you pay an online website a fee of $30/£18 per month, and what happens is it stops your eBook from being shared. A second website, charging just $9.95/£6 allows you to track IP's of the people who you have sold the eBook to, and if they are sharing the eBook you can make the eBook "stop working" (They get a certain password with their email, so their eBook is almost unique) I'm not really sure if i should use one of these methods, or another security method, or whether i should just get along with the fact my eBook profit's will be "raped".

    Apart from that, i'm not sure where i should start to sell the eBook. I was thinking eBay, DP, here and then i was kinda stuck. If i tried selling it on random forums, one person may purchase it then upload it to the forum. This means i might not be able to sell on some forums. Aswell as that, if i signed up to a forum and had 1 post, it would be hard to gain trust.

    If there's anything else i should no, or any tips you could give me please let me know :)

    I've heard about using different "digital item" selling sites that take care of everything for you (I think Clickbank is one example) but at that i've heard of high selling fee's, and i don't really mind just selling each eBook individually to different people.

    Thanks for reading, and i hope i can get some help!


    (Sorry if this is the wrong section, i couldn't find a more appropriate section. If there is an actual section please move it there rather than deleting the thread. Thanks!)

    Well make sure you put it on the Do Not Share list here and it won't ever be shared here at least...

    I'll keep that in mind :)
    What do you think about the online security methods?
