    I believe there are still people here banking with Kindle. Search for threads here about Kindle so you can learn from the experts.

    If you can get your head around the new way Amazon pays per page read under Kindle Select there is still plenty of money to be made on that and it is by far the most profitable of all the ebook routes.

    I've written eBooks in the past. Not sold via Amazon though. Instead I would go to forums about the niche and sell there.

    I'm getting back into ebook publishing. I do make a profit, but I get my royalties from a publisher now. I'm going back to self-publishing I wish I never left. I publishing fiction, so I guess it depends on the genre/niche you are writing in.33236

    Create an ebook and sell it on amazon.

    Or create an ebook and sell it on your own website.

    If your product is good, you do not need to hesitate about money

    Download a couple of ebooks. Copy text from each and make a whole "new" ebooks out of them and then sell them as WSOs or head over to Amazon.
    Everyone does it.

    Or if you can rehash some decent PLR, promote on social media, might be able to make some $. I've been checking some PLR membership sites..couple look decent. $12-19 /month aint too bad for a crap ton of junk..

    If you write a book you can spread it using Torrents, aggregate it to File Search engines or share it on random niche download sections (excluding this one of course.)

    In order to make money off it you can put it in an email list, links pointing someplace or guide people to upsells.

    It's not as easy as it used to be so be sure to act creative with the details & title.

    If your niche is a broad topic then try to sell on Forums. If you have extensive knowledge in your niche it will help you sell your books. It will also create a nice one on one relationship with your customers, rather than a video on a landing page.

    WF WSO's are always a good channel for marketing an ebook.
