    I went on DP, sold it 6 times and now I don't know what to try next. I am sure out of the 6,692,030,277 people in the world, I bet more than 6 want it. Does anyone know where else I should try? The price of it is $7 and the niche is making money with facebook. Any help would be greatly appriecated, Thank-you.

    You may try selling it at other forums similar to DP.

    clickbank, ejunkie, amazon affiliate or other IM forums, like Warrior Forum (but there you have to pay a listing fee, it's not free like DP)

    Or you could just share it here :)

    And continue to make money with the method... That is if it works.
    If it actually works im guessing you woulda sold it for more than $7 though

    why don't you offer it for free after your visitors sign up for a certain paid survey???

    that way, you may not monetize on your eBook but with the referral you have on the paid surveys or with any CPA you may have affiliations with.

    Go to all sorts of IM forms with traffic, put an ad for it in your signature and in any free advertising section. Or find a free ebook, create an url to download it and on that page add an ad or OTO for your paid ebook.

    I have to agree you going to have to work with this one its not easy to promote something online and you have to know how to market or it will be a waste of time.

    The problem with dp and most the ebooks on there is rehashed most people dont want to buy a ebook there any more. The section is full of hyped up ebooks that promise you the world and once you find out that you just brought a ebook on something you already know they refuse to give you your money back.

    I would have to agree im forums is the way to go they have hundreds. Yes it might take work on your part but if you want to sell you ebook book this is what you need to do. Wf, wicf, and tons of other im forums have the market place folder just like dp. You can consider starting you a blog about your ebook and promoting it that way.

    If you think about it there is so many ways you can promote your ebook. If you want can advertise banners on sites or classfieds whatever you decide you will have to work at it. Good luck

    You can get affiliates to sell it on PayDotCom. Your first time is free. Just make sure you offer a good commission to them (50 - 70%) and better yet, if you create some affiliate tools for them, such as various size banners, pre-written email blurbs for their list, and even sales page templates, your product will attract more of them.

    Cheers! - "Wiz"

    Making a blog to promote your ebook would be great and it takes very little effort to knock a blog together.

    I would have to agree with Wiz. You must train your affiliates. Bill Crosby released his 'Twitter traffic Machine' some months ago and it soon became the top selling clickbank product.

    His product was a six video course on how to set up twitter accounts and get targeted followers and then drive them to your blog or website. The last video in the product was a training video for the people who bought the product so that they could become affiliates and make money too. I think it was this last training video that did it for him, and the sales video he made spread faster than swine flu.

    So if I were you I would do this, make the ebook and include a video which teaches the people who just bought it from you how to make money with your ebook. Like for example replacing the affiliate links in the book.

    I am kinda rambling, I hope you catch my drift! :)

    I would suggest spending your profit on getting a nice Clickbank landing page designed.

    There is great profit potential if you hype it up enough.

    It's more about the hype than the content. In fact, the content doesn't really matter.

    I've had numerous clients with the same problem. I've been spending some time this week working on a solution where I basically set up a site for your product and install affiliate software on it where you can track it straight from your site's control panel. Honestly I think its a less pricier solution then other providers but it still would never be worth it if you are selling $5 e-books.

    Also, you try selling the rights to the book? You'd be suprised by how many people would want it.
