    Hi,

    I have 3 ebooks that I paid freelancers to write for me about 4 years ago.

    Book 1 PDF 232 pages. Was a product on click bank, its sort of a female hobby book.
    I have a pro sales page graphics and basically its ready to go, only need a domain because I let mine laps. This book did make $500 dollars a month at one point with very little promotion, I got lazy and let it die, but I still think this would sell in the hands of a good marketer, I remember 1 day it got 26 sales and was priced at $27 dollars, I think some affiliate with a mailing list got a hold of it that day, it?s very comprehensive at over 200 pages, including many original pictures. I paid a writer $1700 just for the book, sales page writer and graphics extra.

    Book2 , PDF 122 pages. Is about a medical procedure for men and includes transcripts of an interview with a doctor. I also have graphics, ebook style sales page, so basically another product that needs a domain and is ready to sell.. this book was on click bank, but I think got only 1 sale, and probably this is content better suited for a free minisite, the adsense pays very well for some keywords about this topic.. This book/graphic ect cost about $500


    Book3 PDF 58 pages. This book never made it off my computer, its related to funerals. I sorta dumped the book because the writer, rewrote it and launched a site 1 week before he gave me my copy and I was just fuming about getting fked. Not only was there no book like this at the time but I paid them to write mine, so they made money on both ends.. grrrrrrr. Anyway this may be better suited for a mini site, but might also make money as an ebook. I think I have 50 , 400 word articles about the topic as well.. so this is also ready to go, just needs a sales page written if sold as an ebook.. cost about 800 for the books and articles.. Note: the writer did not sell an exact copy of this book, but rewrote it in different words and had the book marketed using adwords before I got my copy, but still different content, or at least orgized in a different way?

    I will never spend the time to get these products launched or use them to build mini sites because my interest is gone, so what can I do with them? They must have some value. I basically have 3 ready to go clickbank products, 1 im sure will succeed as an ebook, but other 2 can at least be made into adsense minisites, so sense I know im never going to do anything with them, how can I sell them or make some money off them?

    Thanks

    Why don't you re-list them at Clickbank again and focus only on getting affiliates and JV partners to promote your products? Try to get your affiliate sign-up page to get highly ranked at Google, submit your products to all important affiliate directories, etc. You could even hire an affiliate manager to do all the work for you. Hope this helps.

    Hi,
    Thanks for the input and the idea's are good. I just dont think i care to get back into
    selling these products, what im looking for is a way to sell them and let somebody else
    try and make money from them.. I just lack interest in them now.. But im pretty sure
    there all as useful as they were 4 years ago, not really stuff that gets dated.

    Check out Profit from PLR.
    It explains in step by step videos how to take an old PLR ebook, bring it up to date, and sell it on Clickbank as your own product. The ebook in the video is actually sold on CB right now.
    Should work equally well for your ebooks.

    EDIT: Effectively what peter2002 is telling you what to do. Including production of promo materials for affiliates, recruiting of affiliates, JV's, etc.

    I know John from My Silent Team where he is one of the mentors.
    Code:
    http://www.mysilentteam.com/public/department45.cfm
    The site from where he is selling the videos is here
    Code:
    http://www.profitfromplr.com/
    And you can ask him questions here about it :

    He also offers personal coaching from $10/month (not a typo check his blog).

    I understand that you are not interested in the products any longer. But, really, why settle for a one-time profit from selling them? Get yourself an affiliate manager and offer him/her 70 to 80% of your net profit and enjoy a hands-free passive income for many months or years to come?

    Hi peter,
    Maybe im a little confused or not understanding something. Isn't clickbank essentially my affiliate manager already? I mean when my products being sold they allow clickbank affiliates to sign up and promote my product.. One of the books in the past sold well and affiliates that promoted it would get 75% of the purchase price. Is there something else that can be done for somebody that really only wants to put a website up and do nothing else and is there an even lazier alternative? I mean is there a party that for say 80% of the money will find affiliates for me and pay those affilates whatever he chooses. I guess I mean aside from the way clickbank does it, is there another middle man that can step in and take a cut from the book and pass me an ever more meager percentage of what each book sells for. . err rim confusing myself now, hope I explained what I mean correctly.
