eBook is just an abbreviation for an electronic book. Today, you can find eBooks on a wide range of topic starting from fitness and wellness to Internet marketing and engineering. But, that’s not the most interesting thing about these electronic books. Namely, they are getting quite popular these days because it is very simple and easy to sell them and the market for eBooks is huge.

Many people are avoiding starting a venture like this for a seemingly good reason – they don’t have the writing skills to create an eBook. However, these people are wrong because you can always sell eBooks created by someone else. The vast majority of eBooks have so-called master resale rights. This means that when you buy this product at a special price, you will get an opportunity to resell the eBook. The best part is that you can choose the price. These are the basic things about eBooks that everyone should know. Now it’s the right time to explain how people can make a small fortune by selling eBooks online.

  1. Choose a niche

If you want to start an eBook selling business, selecting a niche is one of the first steps you should take. It’s crucial to understand that there are niches that are far more profitable compared to others. In addition, some of them have larger markets (more potential buyers).

For instance, it would be very difficult to make a good profit by selling eBooks about giraffes. However, if you choose to sell eBooks focused on fitness and wellness or Internet marketing, for example, you will have more chances for success.

  1. Buy/create an eBook

Once you have selected the niche, you will have to create an eBook, hire a writer or buy them (they must come with master resale rights in case you want to purchase them). Don’t forget that writing an eBook is not a simple task and besides writing a compelling eBook, you will also have to think about the design, graphics and few other things.  On the other hand, there are many platforms selling books online where you can find books with master resale rights like eBay for example.

  1. Start selling your eBooks

There are many places where you can sell eBooks including the world-renowned online marketplaces like eBay, Amazon, and Craigslist. Additionally, you can sell your eBooks through special affiliate programs like Commission Junction and ClickBank or through your own website.
