Let’s go …
Make Money Selling eBooks As A Beginner
Pick A Niche
Three most profitable niches
– Health ( Muscle building, weight loss)
– Money ( Online business, stocks investing, budgeting)
– Relationships (Dating)
Pick the one you know most about or you are interested in
Find a burning pain
People are living paycheck to paycheck and they need extra income to buy luxuries or pay debt
People are drowned in debt. They need a way out
Pick one burning problem.
Don’t try to tackle multiple problems at once.
Create an offer (aka solution)
Be as specific as possible
Show how exactly are you going to solve the burning pain with your ebook.
Talk about the benefits.
Don’t bore your prospects with stats and fluff.
Convince them that they can’t live without your solution
Decide a price
Rules to follow ..
If you’re new and you don’t have a lot of authority or audience in a niche
Sell your ebooks for $10 or below.
Add value, get reviews. Increase the price later.
If you’re a pro … ( Why are you even reading this thread??)
Design a cover
Use Canva to design your ebook cover.
Canva > Template > eBooks/kindle > pick a template you like
Title should be the number one problem you’re solving
Don’t be clever. Be clear.
Not a designer? Hire someone on Fiverr.
Create a 3D cover. Use this
Benefits > features or stats
Use 60 second sales hook formula by Kevin Rogers
Keep it simple and clear. Don’t use jargons.
Clear > Clever
Create a pre-order page
Go to Gumroad.
Create a pre-order page.
Price = $10
Add your ebook cover & description
Copy the product the link
Put it in your Twitter & IG bio with a strong CTA
Why @gumroad ?
Because it’s simple, efficient & free.
I use Gumroad too.
You can use other platforms too, but I strongly recommend you use Gumroad if you’re just starting out
Promote your pre-order
Write a sales tweet and pin it on your TL (See my pinned tweet)
– Pay big Twitter pages to RT
– Pay big IG pages to promote
– Engage with people facing the problem you’re solving.
– DM them. Offer them free advice. Then pitch your ebook
Get some orders
Before you start writing your ebook get a few preorders first.
If you don’t get orders, change your sales page copy, change cover. Change offer.
Still no orders?
Try new offer.
I want you make sales before you create your ebook.
Create your ebook
Write in Google docs.
If you use 12 size fonts for your ebook, I’ll block you
– 32 size for titles
– 17 size for texts
Bebas & Helvetica for Title
Georgia & Helvetica for text
For f**ks sake don’t center align your text.
So, you’ve sold a few preorders. It’s time to launch.
Do a big launch party. Do a Countdown sale. (15 to 30 copies) at a discount.
Use scarcity & urgency.
DM all your Twitter bros to RT your launch. (Do it nicely & most will help)
Make more sales.
Tweet content related to your ebook
So, your ebook is live. You made some money.
It’s time build authority & trust around your ebook niche.
Consistantly add value in your niche. Help people. Answer DMs.
Promote your ebook daily on the TL.
Don’t be afraid to sell.
Promote your offer twice a day at least.
1. Under one of your popular tweet
2. Direct sales tweet
Keep adding value
Keep helping people
Keep promoting your ebook
