    I just came here to celebrate.
    I finally got round to writing my first ebook.
    laying it out and designing the cover. I put it
    on the market and guess what???? I got a couple
    of buyers. I am so excited, I just had to tell someone.

    Anyway, I would appreciate a couple of tips on how
    to best market the ebook. I am selling it from my website.
    I am targeting to sell at least 1, 000 copies? Any pointers?
    The book is targetted towards introducing beginners to online writing.

    You probably could do with an ebook geared towards introducing beginners to online writing. Check out Amazon.

    Congratulations, hope you don't get any refunds. Did you sell it on your own site or using clickbank/something similar?

    Why not join ClickBank as a vendor? Or other marketplaces.

    You need to search many affiliates for promoting your ebook. Once your copies get sold, you pay commission to them.

    You didn't tell us what the ebook is all about and the ways you are promoting it. My little point is, encourage your buyers to leave reviews at the end of the day. It's helps keep the sales going but the disadvantage is when you start having too many negative reviews. For me negative reviews it's just time to do something else or improve on my product.

    If you are selling on KDP then do't stop writing. More books=steady revenue.

    Provided the ebook is great, write an awesome sales letter and then indeed join Clickbank as a vendor. That way other people will market the book for you and all you got to do is:[​IMG]

    In a few months time, though, write a sequel.

    Clickbank's refunds on ebooks are so damn many, somewhere over 50%.

    No, I have not gotten any requests for refunds, even
    though I provide 100% money back guarantee.
    I created a sales page on Blogspot, so I direct
    traffic there.

    So far, I have been promoting it mainly through Facebook.
    Will advertise using other ways as well. I haven't had
    any negative reviews. The buyers are happy with the book.

    I am selling it at $0.99
    But I want to up the price, since I have
    noticed my buyers think that it is a bit low
    and most of them pay more than $0.99 anyway.

    The initial price was $19.99 but none sold, so I decided
    to use Amazon's pricing strategy and lower it to $0.99.
    Still experimenting with price though.

    No, since my main target market doesn't buy from Amazon.
