    Well, I have finally found what I like and am going to stick to, selling eBooks.

    So, I decided it was time to start a journal thread, tracking how I do with this.

    I am starting now, at not making a cent with eBooks, but having completed my first one last night.

    I know most people might say, "You can't just write eBooks on methods you haven't tried yourself" ... which honestly, I slightly agree with.

    This method is sneaky, and faulty to a point, but no more risky than any other "Black Hat" method on this forum :D

    So, I finished my first eBook last night, consisting of 12 pages that I think are very well written and detail oriented.

    I plan to push this on DP, make some initial profit, and then scale up with a sales page and much more.

    Then, I will move on to the next eBook/method.



    Hope you follow me on this as I my hopes are to make $100 a day from these combined.


    Thanks, and enjoy.

    Plan is to keep writing, and keep scaling up to $100 a day permanently.
    I know eBooks only sell SO MANY copies a piece, but my plan is to have another one to replace one that quits selling ready to go.

    If this works, I will never fall under $100/day once I get there.

    Some questions for you:

    In how many days from will you reach your $100/day goal? 10 days? 100 days? 1 year?

    Why do you want to make exactly $100/day? Is it because it's a nice round number or do you plan to do something specific when you're making $3000/month?

    I have never tried writing an ebook. If it is easy for you to pop them out then your plan should work if you stay on top of it. Good luck with your journey!

    Home Page:
    People love ebooks with much content so 12 pages won't get you so many buyers. Try to add more pages. Ebooks with +25 pages can make more sales. Some people just like that even if the gold is in a single page because most of them just want to read and not apply the method itself.

    100$ /day at DP?
    Then you must provide 3 different ebooks each day.

    The first person that buys your ebook on DP will leak it to the rest of the world

    Well it is a long term goal. I don't want a burst of money one day and none the next.

    I want eventually to be able to let multiple threads sit and make $100 per day.

    Yes, it's going to be a challenge, but it's not fun if it is easy :D


    I will gradually get better at writing them and make them longer as I get better.

    I finished the sales ad for the post, packaged it up and will start sales soon.

    After the report on this one comes back I will be able to improve.

    I'll tell the results day to day and thanks for following along :p

    Depends on the eBook at the time, this one is $17 for the first 10, $27 after, and so on.

    Not a lot on this one, just seeing what I need to work on for next time.

    This is a learning process for me as well.

    Selling them on DP???? I hope you enjoy the following.

    1. Every other post = Review copy please.
    2. Lot's of PayPal disputes claiming they did not get what they paid for.
    3. Lot's of kids crying and moaning that you won't let them get it for free for a review.
    4. etc... etc...

    But, I do wish you luck with this.

    Eh I know all this, I am just trying it for now.
    No permissions to post anywhere else.

    Just want to see what I can get there, and will build a sales page and push it further after a little initial income.


    Trial and Error really.

    Good luck to you, my word of advice is to sell on places other then DP as well. If your ebook has good quality content then sell on forums like HF and WF. I have personally made about $150 selling ebooks just on HF ( in a week, not in a day though.)

    Yeah, when I scale up a little, I am going to prey on WF :D


    What is HF though? Never heard of that one.

    WF- Warrior Fourm
    HF- Hackforums

    Although on HF you will not get many sales for marketing things, perhaps a better chance if its a CPA ebook. It will sell on there for sure.

    No problem, I'm new here. I am a very active member on HF, but as of late I get bored on there so I decided to join BHW and see if I can conjure up the motivation to make some money with CPA.
