Reasons Why You Need to Write Your Own Ebooks

By: Richard Gilbert

The majority of eBook sellers found on eBay focus completely on selling eBooks and material written by other authors, and while they may well be making a nice sum of money, you'll find that it's the original authors that are generating the really impressive profits.

Creating your own eBook can not only be profitable, but also be an exciting and fun task if you find you are stuck knowing how to take your business to the next level. Here are several reasons why I would strongly recommend you look into creating your own products.

1. Increase Profits & Multiple Income -
When selling eBooks written by other authors you are only making money on the actual sale of the item, however by creating your own products there are ways in which you can still be making money months and even years down the line, after the initial sale has been made.

How's that possible? Well, that's when having complete control over the content of the eBook pays off in a big way. By writing your own material you are able to add in the occasional affiliate link to your eBook whenever you feel the opportunity arises. For example, if you write an eBook on How to Play the Guitar, you might get to a section where you can include an affiliate link to an online music store. If the reader follows the link and proceeds to purchase an item from that site on your recommendation then you will receive a commission fee. Depending on the products you are promoting within your eBook you could earn hundreds in commissions at a time.

Now, take into consideration that you will be making money from the initial sale of the eBook as well as any on going affiliate commissions and you should begin to see why having your own products in so important.

2. Generate Traffic
Another plus point of having your own eBook is the amount of traffic (visitors) you will be able to generate to your other products or websites. Again, by including a few links inside your eBook back to your website or eBay store you'd be surprised at how much additional interest this will create.

3. Granting Resell Rights
If you've been selling eBooks for a while you are probably aware of something called "Resell Rights". This basically means that the author is granting permission to resell to this book to anyone who bought it from them.

The reason people grant these types of resell rights is to get their product "out there" and to ultimately have their eBook spread all over the Internet. So eventually, it would be others selling their eBooks for them. But how is it they can still be making money? Well, think back what we discussed about affiliate sales.

Just imagine if you had filled that eBook with useful affiliate links promoting relevant products to your readers, and now imagine if it was your eBook that everyone was selling all over eBay. Hopefully you see where I'm going with this, and how you can take this approach as far as you want.

By creating your own eBook, adding subtle affiliate links, and granting "resell rights" to anyone that purchases your eBook you should begin to see a boost in your profits in no time.?
