Hi, here are a few comments I hope you find valuable
as you work your way through this fascinating industry.
1. E-books are really just one of many mechanisms for
packaging your knowledge. There are ebooks on thousands
of topics from internet marketing to raising horses, to
travelling to how to find the perfect relationships.
My advice would be to find an area you are interested in, have some experience with - then look for products
to distribute that fall into that category.
If you are interested in helping people find better
relationships, then that is a terrific market.
Finding a topic that a) You are passionate about, b)
is in high demand, and c) Will sell is what this
business (and most businesses) is all about.
2) Start with reprint rights or affiliate programs,
but think bigger. Think like you want to eventually
develop your own product in a certain space - that
way you will pick a topic area that you are truly
interested in. Developing your own product is the key
technique to making good money in this industry.
Instead of pitching other people's products, you can
have hundreds or even thousands of others actively
pitching YOUR product - that's powerful.
