What is the best way to sell an ebook?
I made and published my first ebook. I am testing the waters on how this goes before I do anything with my book that I am currently writing. I need to know what is the best way to sell my ebook. Any ideas? (Zodiac Signs - Pieced Together)
The main issue with releasing only in ebook format is the issue with online piracy. PDF, epub and numerous online book formats are easily copied, traded and uploaded/downloaded everywhere online, especially torrent sites/search engines and even private trackers sources. Same thing applies to MP3/Flac and other audio formats. Once released to the public domain it is worldwide on the net essentially for free. However, it's a good way of self promoting yourself as an author without advertising costs.
In my personal opinion if you are not already skilled in running a publishing house, the best approach is to submit to an epublisher with a proven record of getting good sales.
I have written an article on publishing and selling ebooks.
I hope this will help you. Specially read the comment section as well where I have given a new link as well
The people at bookbaby.com who published my children's story, "Lucky, the Left-Pawed Puppy" for the ipad stressed the need to blog about it in creative ways. I did create a page on Facebook and was contacted by Lefty's left-handed store through that page and they now carry my ebook in their shop on CD. BTW, link to create a page is at the bottom of facebook and very tiny, so look carefully to find it.
