    If you're a VIP you probably can. But no one is going to buy your e-book on BHW. If you have information, post it for free and don't expect anything in return. People on BHW buy services, not promises out of a sales letter.

    You can sell it, but I'm not sure people will buy it.

    Might be worth an investment.

    I wouldn't try to sell an e-book in the BST section as it more than likely wouldn't sell well here (most of the threads in the BST section are services or programs), although if you're a Jr. VIP, you can certainly promote it in your signature space.

    If your book is relevant to BHW's topics, then I think you could try to sell it here. But try not to sell your book directly here. Use BHW for promotion purpose. Here's how I would do it:

    - I'd create a landing page for that book
    - Make it 60% available (for example, give 6 out of 10 chapters for free)
    - Put a price to unlock the rest of the content (which, obviously, is much more important than the 60% you just gave away for free).

    But there might be a problem. People are already used that most books relevant to internet marketing and SEO industry are given away for free in exchange for only an email address. So yes, there's a huge chance that they won't buy your book.

    You could have a bigger chance to sell your book on Amazon or affiliate with some online library.

    Just a thought :)

    Sure you can sell your own ebooks here, but mod have to approve it first. And you must have donor or Jr.vip status.

    You can definitely sell your ebook on bhw. It also depends if people are interested in the content of your book. I'd recommend you warrior forum if you want to sell ebook since there's a bigger market for ebooks there.

    That's a bloody brilliant strategy! I'll start working on it immediately.

    it wouldn't be unprecedented, but if i can remember well, i've only seen one ebook which was sold on BHW since i'm here, maybe 2, but it was an updated version of the first version
    others already gave good suggestions, what you can do instead of selling it here

    I have seen a PPV guide being sold here so I guess ebooks are allowed.

    Out of curiosity, do you know how well that ebook sold here on BHW?

    if i can remember well, it was sold by a reputed member and it contained good info, so it sold pretty well, but i can't really recall what was it about exactly, maybe a CPA guide using blackhat tactics, not fraud though

    Not sure if they will buy it, unless its a service or SEO related.,
