    I'm thinking of selling some ebooks I have MRR rights to & test out
    a market.

    Without making a web page & registering a domain name
    for each whats the best way to do it.

    I plan on using Google Checkout for processing the orders.

    How about hosting the ebook where should I host them.


    Would e-junkie be the way to go for doing all of this.

    Sell on Clickbank (require fee for new account) or on forums marketplace.

    Never used gcheckout because majority of people are using paypal so take note.

    You can't host a ebook without a proper domain setup.

    An option if you want people to download it is to set it up one of the file sharing sites such as rs/mf with a password protection or something.

    Next solution is to send the ebook via email after payment. E-junkie might good for this from what i read , so give it a try.

    First, see if anyone is searching the keywords.

    Code:
    https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal
    You may be surprised that the words searched that lead to sales
    are not the ones you might think and therefor you might buy a useless
    domain and make a useless page if you do not do that step first.

    Eg. When people sell dating advice, it is not to people who looked for "dating advice"
    Rather, it is to people who searched "pick-up lines that work" and things like that.

    Second, create a FREE gmail account with the keywords
    and then create a FREE blogspot account and put on your "sales copy" info.
    It will automatically be found by Google and within a few days it will rank.


    Third, GIVE AWAY a free ebook via an autoresponder from that FREE blog.

    1 Put the ebook online somewhere.
    - First, just on a place where there is direct download = megafire
    - When you get more hits, put it on a PAYING download site like Upl0ading

    2 Set-up your gmail account with an autoresponder which includes
    the link to the ebook, so when anyone emails the address, they
    get an immediate reply with the download link.
    3 "Just email xxxxxx@gmail.com for your free copy!"

    This will let you see if it is getting
    any traffic
    any interest in the FREE ebook ( of not, you won't sell it! )
    and you get everybody's email to market similar products.

    This is the way I do it every time and I don't spend a dime
    until I know money can be made.

    I like it thanks I think doing some trend research on Google Trends & some other sites would help me increase the chances of picking a winning product also.

    yeah what alex recommended is pretty good. get an autoresponder account from whereever that you like.. then give em a free report, in return for their opt in, this way you'll create a list while seeing if the market is hot, then just go through a proper launch sequence (sounds funny i know) to maximize the conversion and then you'll be playin in the big leagues. good luck
