    I wrote a sex story... and I have a sex niche twitter account with 700 followers.... I want to turn my sex story into a 4 page ebook and sell for like $.99 ... I will set up a free blogger (blog spot) which will contain an introduction of the story and it will lead them to a link to purchase the rest of the book on my site or kindle... don't know which way I'm going to go with that yet.

    If even half of my followers purchase the book that will be $350.00



    Is there anything else I need to do before trying this out.... any legal actions or anything I need to be worried about?

    That sounds like a decent plan as long as your followers are authentic and active. If you're going to be sending traffic to a website and you want to be cheap, at least use a self-hosted Wordpress with Freehostia that way you can monetise it and make additional income.

    I would also assume that Blogger would consider your ebook adult content. If it this is the case,you would need to mark the website as an adult content website. Just a warning, adult blogger websites cannot be monetise as stated in Blogger's TOS.

    No legal problems as long as there was no plagiarism writing the book. Everything will be fine as long as you mark your blogger as adult and the site you're selling the ebook on allows adult content.

    But you're never going to get a 50% conversion rate. Likely only 1-3% of the people who click onto your blogger will end up buying the book. I reckon you will need far more followers than 700 or some other way of directing traffic.

    I'd also suggest getting your own domain and hosting. It looks far more professional, you have more freedom and more people will buy your book.

    I was talking about a non-fiction adult related book with my girlfriend the other day.

    How long would the book have to be?

    Op i did the exact same thing with a weight loss ebook. Mines about 10 pages, and although it is much better than 99% of the shit on clickbank, because it actually is based on fundamental principles and not bullshit fad crap.

    Problem is even though it is heaps better it probably will not sell well on clickbank without a shit ton of effort into videos, testimonials, marketing, etc.

    Kindle is an option but conversion rates would suck.

    I am thinking about marketing it through twitter via a landing page locked with a social locker, and inside of that a CPA locker.

    food for thought

    50% Conversion Rate is out of this world. No matter how cheap it goes, most people aren't willing to spend money. You might earn more writing stories on a blog and monetise it with ads or something. Anyway, that's just my opinion, feel free to disagree.
    Good luck!

    Four pages? . . . That's not an ebook - that's a brochure.

    I would suggest that you increase the content to at least 10 pages.

    Are you talking 1.5 spacing? So I guess it would be 400 words x 10 pages?

    Yes . . . It could be double spaced. Is it a standard ebook or is it a Kindle book?

    My point is basically to give the potential customer more "perceived value"

    OP you'd increase the content to at least 10 pages,then launch a cpc ad compaign at googread.com.There are 3 millions people loving read on the site. You can also try kindle's giveaway promotion.

    If you're thinking that they will buy it coz its 99 cents then that won't happen. They will probably consider it cheap and not worth their time. Also 4 pages ? Are you kidding me ? A decent short story is expected to have at least 7000 words. Let's just assume that you manage to write more and make a decent product. A 700 follower Twitter account doesn't really mean much. 50% conversion simply won't happen unless you are a superstar Twitter-ista.

    Your best bet for this is Kindle store (but your book has to be bigger). But there also u will only start earning when you write regularly and publish more frequently. One book in now way will take you to any riches. Good luck !

    OP, if it is a picture book, I might buy it. Even better, make it a pop-up book. (I realize it might be difficult in Ebook format but I am just the ideas man, you work out the details)

    Edit: Just found this and think you should make it a colouring in book

    I suppose you can create an ebook with 3D images for phones and monitors that are 3D capable. If the 3D screen is anaglyph and not stereoscopic, you can give away a pair of free 3D glasses.

    Sex niche is very unreliable for me, since it comes and goes - very fast.
    You get an urge to fap, then you fap aand you won't even like to look at porn.

    50% is literally, impossible. You should find a group of people who always think about sex, or who are willing to read sex stories anytime - because nobody else would buy it.

    hey OP , Look at this one http://kirtu.com/
    Try to make your book like this one . Can hire a cartoon designer from fiverr for help.
    In this way, you can also increase your costing .
