    Hello,
    Just curious because I am almost done writing an ebook about making money online with regards to my region (Country I live in)
    just want to know how much have you sold in your IM career? How many ebooks.

    I'm aiming to sell 500 copies of 22$ books with offline marketing

    Achievable:dunce::dunce:?

    I was paid ~$500 to write an ebook on ship construction and architecture that sold for like $9 a piece. My client made what he invested in the ebook many times over.

    Find your market, write good material, PUSH and publicize your ebook and you'll make a nice bundle.

    Don't write an ebook about how to write an ebook though ;) just like people shouldn't blog about blogging. The market is out there for you.

    Best of fortune to you

    Congrats on the book, and i dont see why you couldn't! Depends mainly on the route you take to market your book..

    I'm about to launch my first e-book as well in the medical niche. Do your research and try and find some good keywords, luckily for me my sub-niche(s) are pretty much untapped and pretty profitable, pretty excited actually. Where there's a issue, there's someone willing to pay for solutions to help relieve them of any discomfort they may have.. physical, mental, a desire etc.

    Launch your site before hand and build some authority with articles and pr blasts on the subject and start ranking for keywords as well, keep an eye out for profitable long tail keys and emd's also.. Look for different forums (boardreader, big-boards, yahoo ans, etc) and communities in your niche to broadcast and build your Social presence up as well (twit,fb,yt,linkd) ... Search around the site and you will find some good tutorials on how to squeeze leads out of Amazon as well..

    If you can try and up sell through your book by offering discounts and affiliate links too related products.. I built a mini e-comm store to help furthermore resolve the readers issue.. ;p
