    Hey guys,

    Was thinking of putting together an ebook to sell at inferior IM forums?

    Has anybody here had any success doing this?

    MANY people have had success doing this...

    Lots of people strive to get 3 or 4 solid ebooks to sell around the IM forums...Once they start selling, they just rotate through their 3-4 offers and make some fair money...

    This income level red lines pretty early though...$10k per month means your PUSHING some ebooks!!

    A reasonable income would be around $100-$200 per day...Keeping in mind, this number means you have a solid sales pitch and reputation in the forum...

    But, theres only one way to find out and thats by doing it yourself! Good luck!

    disagree, i sold only one ebook on DP a few months ago for testing purposes only, so it was only one ebook on one IM forum and i made $200 in 12 hours, i had no reputation, no itrader and around 30 posts total, so i was a nobody there, no experience with selling ebooks...nice sales thread with earning proofs, good reviews and you're golden

    I believe it :) Having a few solid reviews will increase your earnings like mad!
    The price of your ebook will dictate your earnings too...of course....

    For example...lets say you sold an ebook 100 times! Lets just hope you sold them for $100 per piece and not $1

    Obviously there is HUGE money to be made in creating and selling products (ebooks, video etc)

    Tips:

    1. Add some videos to the ebook to increase the perceived value and command a higher price point.

    2. Get a professionally designed ebook cover. It makes the buyer feel like they are buying a real products. Trust me. This makes all the difference.

    3. Dont just post your ebook for sale. Take some time and write some killer copy and you'll have a sales page that converts like crazy.

    4. Give some members review copies to generate some reviews BEFORE you start selling the ebook. This will increase sales dramatically. Social Proof.

    5. Make sure you deliver SOLID and VALUABLE content. Delivering re hashed BS will only get you a bad rep and no one will buy from you.

    Yeah, a nice sales pitch is all you need besides a solid offer. General knowledge sells but fluff doesn't. Being honest is the key if you want the earnings to be long term.

    Don't bother with DP, and if you're going to sell on WF you should start building a reputation their and write some solid guides for free, before you know it people will be begging you to take their money.

    A good sales video (ripped off from frank kern), some good sales copy tips (ripped off

    from Dan Kennedy) and maybe start shooting up my posts count and reputation. Also I

    think giving away lots of useful freebies might be a good way to go too!

    The hardest thing with selling ebooks is you need to have some type of pitch. I only sold 1 ebook on DP. I gave out 2 reviews that got 8/10 9.5/10. My ebook was solid with good content worth the money. Unfortunatly im suspended until oct for making another account. Once i get back i will start up again making money.

    Yes, a considerable income can be made this way. Again, the key is to have a killer subject line, great sales pitch, great reviews right out of the gate and of course quality content. Any ebook that targets the needs of newbies will often do quite well.
