    I have a lot of knowledge in weight loss, as I dropped 15kg in about 3 years. I was thinking about writing a book to publish, however I believe it may not work in my country. I live in 3rd world country, and copyright here is a joke, none cares if ppl are copying content around the net. Even in university, plagiarism is jail-free.

    Once my book goes online, it would be all over local forums (i believe i can sell it). Stamping books with buyer names won't work. In addition, some knowledge is pretty common sense, I don't think its worth the effort to write a book and protect the content.

    My question is, should I share my experience and try to earn money from blogging, or should I sell my experience? I wish to here some information from someone who is selling digital content.

    sorry for bad English :) thanks for reading

    15kg in 3 year??
    Anyone can do that.15 kg in 3 months you may sell some copies but 15 kg in 3 years is very easy for everyone to do it.

    There are a lot of books about weight loss.
    Your method must be something special.
    But 15kg in 3years does not sound special to me.

    i have good experiences with this:

    make a free and a pro edition from your book/videos and split it in chapters. in the free edition they can download the full info for free, but the zip per chapter is locked with sharecash (or whatever) to get the password. this is annoying for the freebie seeker and you tell him, that when he buys the pro edition, he could download all without the annoying sponsored zips (no lock). if he wants to spend a little money he gets all in seconds - you make money, or he takes time and do a cpa to unlock your knowlegde, you also get money.

    try it, its great.

    greetings from austria - kurti

    that isn't much weight to lose over 3 years... i've lost a lot more than that (about double) in about 2.5 to 3 months by doing low carb.

    losing 15kg in 3 years better not be your selling point.

    I meant I learned a lot in 3 years.In fact, I wasn't serious with dropping weight, it was more like liefstyle changing. Low carb was the way to go. I just want to make some bucks out of my mind. 3 years of researching, practicing should not be wasted.

    I believe i will first build some reputation first, then may publish a kind of schedule, special tips, etc... via small subscribe fee. Ads for supplement products may work, I will have to try.

    I should take action now, it only takes 9$ a year for a domain, and some writing which is not so hard. Even if I fail, my site my still benefit the community in some way. Why not :)

    Thanks for advice kurti and fellows
