    Just wondering if it is possible to make any sort of reasonable pay-check by selling e-books dedicated to specific niches in this day and age?

    Just like many other money making methods, if you know what you're doing you can bank pretty well... You just have to apply your own twist to an old method and that's it ;) This is repeated so many times on BHW but it's true, someone once said that no-one can make money with torrents anymore because the whole market is saturated but if you have a slightly modified method it just might work for you!

    I'd say yes but depends in which marketplace you will sell and how saturated it is.

    There is. But you need to be more creative in creating contents which is appealing to the customers.

    Its all about marketing to your client properly, finding the traffic, and getting the sales. Oh, and it helps if you have a good product.

    Of course this entirely dependent on the niche, but yes, there are tons of new ebooks and products being released daily that you've never heard about and that are doing very well for the owners.

    I have an ebook site with content locker and i get around 15% conversion with 10k traffic monthly. So ya there is money to be made on it if you do the work.

    Yes, I have a niche site that generates 1-2k/month from a single eBook. Haven't touched the site in a month.

    Some tips:

    1. Stick with niches where written testimonials are the norm. Getting customers to submit before/after pictures or any other type of visual proof is VERY difficult. And testimonials are key.

    2. If possible, stick with niches that will naturally attract edu links (i.e., education, admissions, finance, etc.).

    Two friends of mine make a killing online and they do ZERO seo, not a single link. They have great content and naturally attract .edu links because of their niches.

    If they did some seo they would make even more...

    There is still money to be made via e-books, just have to make something unique and attractive to others.

    Plenty of life left in ebooks. Not everyone has to have video, some people just want pure info.

    On a WordPress blog with e-junkie. I thought about clickbank, but didn't like their terms.

    Yeah, I actually converted one of my ebooks into a video product and didn't make a single sale. I wanted to gouge my eyes out. Some niches do better with ebooks... Learned this the hard way.
