    Hey guys,

    I've written an ebook that I'll be putting up on Clickbank sometime in mid May. In the meantime, I was thinking about offering it on DP.

    DP seems to be a really cheap marketplace...so I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience there, and what your impressions were.

    Thanks.

    Try WF as a WSO, you'd get at least a bit more on there compared to DP

    Well that all depends on what the subject of the eBook is. I don't know how many WF members want to know The Truth About Abs :p

    It probably is the best place to sell for some things so give it a try!

    Thanks guys. I'll also look into WSO.

    The ebook is an advanced course on writing sales copy for the noob. The best sellers at DP seem to be "money making" methods that go for around $5-$10. That's why I was wondering.

    lol, so true.

    The one plus that I can see at DP is that the ebooks that sell seem to be rather short. 5-15 pages short. This makes it an easy market to test, at least.

    ah yea sorry about that.. i forgot it was just selling an "ebook" in general.

    Turn that ebook into a small course and sell it as a WSO :)

    I've been looking into WSOs, yeah. Thanks for the tip. The only thing is I've never used the Warrior Forums, so I'd have a lot of value-posting to do before I could sell one. Could be worth it.

    To everyone:

    If you have a DP account with some rep, I'd give you a review copy. It will be of use to you if you have never studied the psychological side of sales copy. Otherwise, the material will probably be pretty familiar.

    Thanks. I'm going to make an account on the Warrior Forum and get my rep up in case I decide to release a WSO. In the meantime, I learned about DigiResults, which seems like a nice addition to ClickBank. I was going to release a distilled version of my ebook on DP, but now IDK.

    I've tried DP & WF, both of them are bullshit.

    I've posted my thread also in DP for selling E-Books but no result. DP is very cheap marketplace.
