    Travel photography is my hobby and i took it very seriously since few years now. I am writing an eBook about learning the art of Photography. Just need some suggestions here. I am planning to sell it on my website. I'll promote it on FB and probably adwords/bing too. i hope I'll make some money selling a few copies to the learners. Just need some valuable suggestions from all fo you. suggest me some good payment processors to use. Plus give me some marketing ideas.

    You can use stripe or PayPal as your payment processors. As far as marketing goes, It looks like you're on the right track. It will be a good idea to sign up with some affiliate sites such as Commission Junction, Click Bank and MaxBounty and list your eBook there and share a percentage with affiliates who will promote your product.
    Hope this helps.

    In my personal opinion, the world is going digital. The number of people who buy hard copies of books are slowly but surely, falling. If you want to use the word passion to describe your love for travel photography and the willingness to share your knowledge with those willing to learn, why stick to just some social media? Go all out. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Friends, Family, Affiliate websites that sell Ebooks by offering the affiliates a percentage. It sounds like a good idea, and I'm sure it'll work out.
    Cheers and all the best.

    A lot of people write eBooks, but not many sell it well.
    Make sure you have identified your market. Make sure you reached out to at least 50 people in your industry/market, to identify their needs & desires.
    Will they be willing to buy it from you? What will they expect your eBook to tell/help them with?

    If you can get beyond this phase you won't be a loser.
    You can accept payments using PayPal to start with.

    GOod luck :)

    Look at the top selling photography books on amazon and read the reviews. The reviews will help you structure the content of your book to meet the needs of the market. The reviews will also help you create a compelling title for your book to will tell people your book is going to help them with the things they want most.
