    I just sold an ebook on digitalpoint but i only made about 7-10 sales before it got shared here on bhw and the poster refused to remove it. Anyway, i'm going to go big and sell another ebook on an actual website for long term profit rather than a short fast sales thing. Anyway, i need to choose one of three topics and i need help deciding. Anyway, should i write a fitness ebook, another money making ebook, or a time management ebook. I'm also thinking of selling a membership to a forum that comes with the ebook i'm writing free of charge. What should i do. Thank guys/gals. At this point i trust your judgment more than mine. I might even do all three but what should i work on first?

    Why request the poster to remove the ebook. All you have to do is send a PM to a mod and it gets removed.
    As for the suggestion, not a clue lol...

    How about NONE of them? How many ebooks on this stuff does the world need? I'm not saying you CAN'T make money from these topics, but you'll have a real bitch of a climb to market them sufficiently.

    If you must - which one do you have a chance in hell on ranking? Or even gettting ARTICLES about this topic to rank? What? You're gonna do PPC? How much money do you have? Or do you merely feel like chopping off a limb?

    If I were you, expand on one of these topics to make it really specific. For example:

    Fitness -> Basketball -> Jumping Higher

    That is the only way you'll make money.

    Pick a topic and make it as specific as possible.

    What about starting a survey?
    Did you know that its not only possible but
    also very easy to create a survey using Google docs?

    Code:
    http://www.google.com/google-d-s/intl/en/tour1.html
    Imho you should start a survey amidst those who you're targeting asking them 3~5 question regarding the major 'variables' upon which you're going to define your ebook.

    To motivate them fill out your quick survey I suggest giving away any freebies that fit into your audience.

    I wish you lots of luck.

    anyways, thanks for all the tips everyone. There's also the option of giving it away for free to establish my name and get people on my list.
