    One area of IM I've never ventured into is ebook writing. Let's say for example I wrote an ebook on wordpress. Pick a topic within wordpress and made a decent ebook about. Or a wordpress method. You get the idea.

    How would I go about promoting it other than buying $35 threads is BST sections all over the internet? My ebook may solve a problem but there's no way tell the actual demand or if I would have a positive ROI. I mean if I priced it at $7 I would only have to sell 5 to break even.

    Would I promote it like a clickbank product? By that I mean build a lander with a sales page. Buy a domain, SEO it the whole 9. I guess if it was something I liked doing I could build a digital store and scale it. Not sure of the advantages / disadvantages of having all my ebooks in a centralized site as opposed to individual landers for each book with it's own domain.

    Just brainstorming, looking for ideas / opinions. Thanks.

    Why not submit it to kindle? I think that is the "hot" / new thing to do these days. There are a few threads about it on this forum.

    I'm kinda struggling with the same dilemmas right now as well BUT I do have this piece of advice based on what you have already stated.

    7$ seems a bit low. If you know people can benefit from it don't be afraid to raise the price a little bit.

    No need to sell something that has decent value for only 7$. Ask yourself, is it worth more the the quiznos i bought today? It probably is...

    If its a good idea go for the gusto.
    Raise the price, get some artwork done, and find some affiliates/banners/ppc etc.
