Valuable eBooks is typical example. Ebooks are books, yes books but in soft copy. They are in format that can be delivered to email or downloaded online.
You can write them yourself, employ writer(s), use public domain content, and create your ebooks from many sources. In one of my earlier articles, I discussed in details; ‘information products and marketing in Nigeria’ in which ebook creation and selling is part of.
There’s a huge wide open market for information products and they sell very well. You can create an eBook where you give step by step directions on how to lose weight, or prepare different type of delicious meals. You can even write one on how to get clear skin or any number of things that people can spend their money on.
If you don’t have any idea what kind of product to create, take stock of your life’s problem and write down any way that you solved the problem. Detail step by step what you did. Then create an eBook where you share how you overcame that problem
An eBook can sell countless times (giving you residual income). You can write an eBook on any topic under the sun – but it’s best to choose a topic that people will pay money for, which usually solves a problem
One good thing about eBook selling is that you won’t have to rely on an editor or publisher telling you whether a book will be published. Also, you won’t have to rely on a bookstore to put your book on its shelves before you can sell your Ebooks.
Who can create product(s) to sell?
