    How do I make money writing ebooks?

    I am a freelance writer. I often get requests from my clients for writing ebooks. How does it actually help me in making money? I have scores of ideas. Can I make some decent money if I convert them into ebooks?

    I think it depends on how skilled you are at marketing yourself on-line and in traditional ways. You can definitely make money if you are able to get your work talked about enough to generate good sales. The royalty rate is much better with e-books than traditionally published ones. Good luck!

    you can get paid to ghostwrite ebooks for people, or you can write your own and sell them from your own site or Amazon (or both).  The biggest hurdle is advertising and marketing your book, since practically everyone and their grandma has an ebook for sale.

    If your clients are requesting ebooks, then you already have a platform to sell to. As Lydia said, your sales will be reflected by how well you are able to market yourself. Sometimes writing is the easiest part. Price your books reasonably and let your clients know about them. The best books to write are those that solve problems for others; books they will refer to over and over. If they find the books helpful, they will tell others. Word of mouth advertising is best. Perhaps you could include some client testimonials in your books as well. Oh, and with the POD options out there, don't limit yourself to ebooks alone.

    Good luck!
