    I have seen many methods online through my experience and learned many methods personally. Now i am preparing to write a good ebook that will help to newbie's and as well as other people who are struggling to earn money.

    My questions are:1. What topic is better at present and in future to get good sales and i am having domain dollarsfall.com

    any suggestion on which topic i have to write? eg.twitter,affiliate programs..

    2.Where to market in clickbank or click2sell? Is there any good network to promote my ebook..

    Please suggest me some good topic..and share the related issues regarding selling an ebook..

    thanks in advance..

    Don't write one. Selling it sucks. All you get is people asking for review copies. Other people buy it and file a fraud complaint to PayPal, saying their account has been hacked. I sold about 5 copies of my eBook for $25, and every single one of those people filed a refund request from PayPal.

    No, anywhere people will try to get your eBook for free, even if it means risking a lawsuit.

    To IamKing:

    One good topic is Getting Traffic To Your Website.

    I have to disagree with those who say that creating an ebook is not the way to go. On DP it isn't the way to go, but if you can produce a top quality product with some original ideas or "twists" to it, you can do well on WF. Also if you pay to put your ebook on Clickbank and offer affiliates a 50% - 75% commission, you can do very well.

    Cheers! . . . And Good Luck With Your Ebook.

    "Wiz"

    PS: Incidently, if you want a KILLER ebook cover created for it, I do professional graphic work and can help you out in that area as well as do a graphically compelling Sales/Landing Page for you at a very affordable price.

    Just a Casual Question:

    by doing so, are you not afraid of your "success" methods getting saturated and the users will be in competition with your EARNINGS ?

    I say go for it OP, If your content has solid value and it's not just rehashed rewrites of other material you can do well with it. I have yet to have anyone ask for a refund on my current book.

    Provide quality and value and you'll be golden.

    As for charge backs, I honestly don't think I have ever had a single charge back from an e-book sold on DP.

    Then again, I didn't sell a ton of them either because there's more people asking for review copies than there is asking for questions.. I don't know if I can bring myself to do it but.. I might have to post on WF and try my luck there.

    But those people.. they're so.. GAH!! stupid!

    Clickbank is the best (still) in my opinion.

    EDIT: Actually.. nevermind.. this is the message I get on the account I never posted on once. I just made it and let it sit for a while.

    If you're going to write an ebook, overhype it as much as possible and more than that. That will make people curious and also add a discount of "50%" like you say it's originally 200$ but you sell it for 100$ as you normaly would.

    Also share it for free here, people like that ;)

    You'll always get chargebacks no matter how good your ebook is. You can fight back by sending tracking letter to their address, but it's not 100% foolproof.

    Selling eBooks is a good money maker, just MAKE SURE you write on a popular subject that people want to learn about.

    Not something like Autoblogging.. that is a pretty small niche. :/

    No doubt ...

    It's still too early to tell, but I have a feeling it won't sell as well as my other two eBooks. But I have a plan B if it doesn't.

    The funny thing is, it's actually better then my other two eBooks at the moment, just the market for it... doesn't seem to be there.

    Writing ebooks for DP is highly over glorified! First off, you are dealing with a bunch of greedy impatient idiots. Secondly, it is not even worth the trouble. From my own experience, writing high quality pdf's, all that is going to happen is that you are going to have almost all your sales refunded or chargebacked. There is no way to get around it; I have tried them all.

    That is why I just got into CPA. DP use to be profitable about 3 years ago. Now it is just a joke. :(

    The only thing can come out of it, is your paypal will get limited. If it continues to happen, they will just permanently freeze your account. Your considered "high risk."

    So it is your choice.

    Your friend,

    yea DP is a joke, the ebook end up getting shared or you get chargeback so you'll be happy to get a few sales even for good original stuff. My advice is better be prepared for that if you are looking at DP.
