    Good post about ebook publishing. It’s still the easiest way to make money online selling ebooks. You write it one time and sell it hundreds or thousands of times for years to come. Good that you mentioned Amazon, they made ebooks more popular with their Kindle innovation, and now everyone and their brothers are publishing kindle ebooks.

    No, I haven’t leveraged the power of ebook publishing for business success yet. I don’t wanna be one of those putting together articles as Kindle ebooks and selling them. I read of one blogger who has over 100 kindle ebooks, all published within months. I’m sure most are low quality. If or when I write one, it should be good quality. What do you think?

    Hello Sunday,

    No, I haven’t leveraged the power of ebook publishing yet but I sure plan to. I’m trying to figure out what I want it to be about. I have read so many ebooks myself online. About a week ago Harleena posted about writing an ebook and she had some information so I subscribed to it.

    I love to read and write so I believe it is definitely my calling to write a book. Thanks for sharing this with us!

    Hi Sunday,

    I haven’t leveraged the power of ebook publishing but I should, since even non-writers can get ebooks published by outsourcing the whole thing.

    If those who can’t write still get ebooks published through outsourcing, it should be easy enough for everyone.

    With the advantages you listed and explained in this post, it should be something to consider, particularly as a passive income source.

    • Profile photo of Sunday William Profile

      Hi Judith,
      Yes, outsourcing ebook is a great option for those who can’t write nor have the time. The most important thing is that businesses embrace the idea that ebooks has the power to boost exposure and generate passive income. So, whether we write or outsource, the power of ebooks should never be ignored!

        You are correct, Sunday, ebooks can boost exposure and generate passive income.

        One more point, like I said in my comment, since even non-writers can get ebooks published by outsourcing the whole thing, will you say the whole writing profession has been diluted or corrupted because of ebook publishing?

        • Profile photo of Sunday William Profile

          Yes Judith, I will say that the whole writing profession has been diluted because of ease of publishing. However, we can still sieve the substance from the chaff.

          There are still quality ebooks out there just as there are still quality publications out there.

          There are still writers and ebook publishers who take time to research and create contents that readily meet the needs of the audience real time.

          ebook publishers should ensure they go for evergreen contents to meet the needs of readers timelessly

    Hi Sunday,
    This is my best takeaway from this post “Use your Ebook as a Lead Magnet to Grow Subscriber List”. I couldn’t agree with you more. Ebook publishing done right will help in drawing leads for conversion. However, the disadvantage is that one still has to sieve through the list to determine the ‘target audience’ right?

  • Profile photo of Sarah John Profile

    Hi Sunday,
    Ebook publishing is practiced by many bloggers on the web.

    Some use it to attract leads while others use it to generate sales. Yes, leveraging on this strategy will bring about improved success online.

    What becomes important is for the online marketer to understand how to create and share truly valuable ebooks.

    Yes, I have leveraged ebooks quite a bit. I would actually specify two types of ebooks or two different ways of monetizing them.

    First one is to market an ebook on your own site as an info product. It’s awesome, because it’s quick and easy to make, you don’t need to be a tech guru and you can have a product to sell within a week.

    I have used this quite a bit. Now how do you sell it? Well, you can do a product launch there’s a whole science to it and if you manage to learn how to do it effectively you can make a lot of money.

    And then there’s the other side of ebooks where you write them to sell on Amazon and similar sites, the marketing process is completely different here. I have written about it in a blog post that you can find below.

    Both of the strategies can make you a lot of money.

      Hi Liudas,
      I agree with you there is a whole lot of science in doing product launch when it comes to creating ebooks to promote a business.

      If we get it right during the product launch process, such ebook will go a long way to help the online success.

      Your guide on starting an Amazon Kindle Publishing Business surely reveals another stunning way of leveraging the power of ebooks!
      Sunday William recently posted…How Do you Woo Customer Loyalty with Ease?My Profile

    • Profile photo of Gordie Chase Profile

      The entire science to launching an eBook is getting affiliates to sell your book. I’ts not as hard as we try to make it especially with platforms like Warrior Formum and Jvzoo available. Treat it like a business and outsource to experts, it’s the secret of the so called guru. You would be amazed by how many profitable ebooks on the market that were,nt written by the author. Big launches rarely work for ebooks unless they,re over 300 pages and contain an abundance of real life case studies but leveraging affiliates will work even if your eBook is garbage. But please don,’t publish anymore garbage, we have enough.

  • Profile photo of Gordie Chase Profile

    As always I agree with your assessment of the value of eBook publishing. There are however people who just have no talent for writing. I can’t begin to tell you how many poorly written hard to understand ebooks I’ve read. So for those folks, and there are many of them, I recommend they purchase PLR’s and find someone at odesk or fiverr to rewrite the material. A junk eBook will put a hard stain on your reputation. I also recommend you have your eBook written in several different languages if it becomes popular. Amazingly the rest of the world is quickly becoming internet saavy and having properties out there to cover foreign markets is just forward thinking. Thanks for the article, as a funnel and traffic advocate I think ebooks are the best tools for both.

      Hey Gordie,
      I agree with you, many people are poor at writing ebooks and should instead outsource to the best “writers” out there!

      Also, you recommended an ebook written in many different languages to tap into the foreign market, this is a great recommendation worthy of pursuing!

      Ebooks for business marketing is sure helpful for funnel and traffic! Thanks for leaving your thoughts once again on this topic!

    Hello Sunday, I did put together a free report for my blog and was using this as my lead magnet to grow my list, but I never thought of calling it an e-book?

    I didn’t really have a whole lot of success with it either, perhaps my title was wrong, or something LOL

    I have learned it is all about testing and tweaking until we find what works or hire someone to help us..

    Great share my friend!

    Hi Sunday
    I am all for a good e-book as a lead magnet. These days many marketers seem to go for videos and while there are positives I believe the e-book still beats video.

    A video is something you watch once and it is over. You also cannot not scan though it like you can with an e-book. It you do you may miss some vital information.

    With an e-book you can make notes and write down inportant parts. The e-book is and old favorite and it is an important teaching tool.
    Thanks for posting.

    Ebooks are great, especially if you can get them into the Amazon Kindle marketplace. That will open you up to a whole new audience. Plus, you can use them as free giveaways for your email list to build up a huge subscriber base.

    Hi Sunday,

    I agree and disagree with your article

    If one already has a large email list of people who opted in to the list, absolute fantastic way of selling to them as they are already interested in what you have to say and have been following you for a reason. So yes I totally agree with this method being a way to succeed.

    Like has rightly been said about Amazon (and the others being diluted) publishing there alone does not guarantee you success. In fact, it is extremely hard for your books to get discovered. Unless of course you are already a household name that people routinely search for. Even if you make your book free, that still does not mean people would want it.

    Take me for instance, I have three published books on Amazon. My latest book http://amzn.to/1S7GM66 is free. I still have to work extremely hard to get people to download it. I mean, that’s why I joined this community.

    The one thing that I have learnt new today is about leveraging affiliates. I didn’t think of that before. I know that a lot of the big book publishers do.

    My question now is this, how can a self published author (especially for fiction) get affiliates to sell ones books?

    Best

    Hello Sunday,

    Ebook publishing should be implemented where it is relevant. I have seen many online marketers and bloggers use ebook to make money online.

    What really gives them the edge is the fact that they always achieve good success when the ebook has value for the target audience.

    So, it is one thing to leverage ebook publishing but it is quite another thing to make the ebook a solution for the target audience.

    The latter is what brings about online success with ebooks!

    One of the importance of leveraging the power of ebook publishing is the idea that it would help in building long term brand recognition and authority.

    Yes, ebook can help build authority especially if the content is engaging. If people know you always publish the best ebooks then you are perceived as an authority!

      Hi Amit,

      You are right, if the content is engaging then it becomes really easy to build authority with ebook.
