When you decide to sell a product. What would you do?

Hey guys,
I guess most of you already know me and what I've done in the past. I shared one of my previous ebooks (FiverrClerks) right here in the Community Discussion, and I've been writing ebooks in the past too.

However, I do things my way, as that's what I've been doing previously.. But even though I personally feel that I already know tons of things about how to and what to do etc. When it comes to the actual sales, I want to ask you about it.

Fresh ideas and new things to do is always welcome, and that's why I ask you this now.

If you ever got the idea of writing your own ebook..
How would you do it and How would you sell it?

Best Regards,

If I were to write my own ebook I wouldn't sell it, I would give it away for freeeeee When you decide to sell a product. What would you do?

But every single link within the ebook would be a link to my own services or an affiliate link to something a person could use for what the book is about, and of course I'd get a little commission on the side lol.

ClickBank is a great place to sell ebooks, but depending on your niche, it could be tough to get people to push it. If you have a low gravity, people won't even look at your listing because they don't think it will sell. You could write the best thing in the world, but affiliates won't push it unless someone has already sold it and made some money. It's an odd system, but you need sales in order to make sales When you decide to sell a product. What would you do?

Yeah for years I've always thought about how I should write eBooks and try to sell them. But for some reason it's not something I've done by and large. I've been writing one now which I'm nearly finished and it's about good to go, but I've still not got around to actually publishing it. Whether on here or anywhere else. I think it's because I'm so busy with other things that by the time I've done what I need to do in the day, I'm pooped and don't have the time and energy to put into it. Well that's my excuse anyway! And that's what it comes down to. Having the time and energy to put into it and actually being brave enough to publish it! I think it's okay and it probably wouldn't, but I just don't want to get any bad reviews or want anyone to say anything bad about it lol. So I keep putting it off and putting it off and putting it off.

I think I just need to man up, bite the bullet and publish it and see what happens. And if I do get any bad reviews of it, suck it up and handle it. It's like anything in life, whether it's a service you sell or a product of some kind. You can't please all the people all the time!

But I would probably start by selling it on SEOClerks first. Then see about advertising the actual service on other places. Then look into putting it up on ClickBank and other sites that you can sell eBooks on. But I would go by what response and success it had on here first. When you decide to sell a product. What would you do?

That sounds cool Mike, and I do understand how you feel. I was like that too and I still have those feelings and thoughts whenever I'm about to publish a new ebook. - It's "spooky" so to speak. But it's fun too!

Sure, the bad reviews will come. Sooner or later. Perhaps not even on this product of yours. Perhaps you'll start with 2 negative reviews on your next project. Who knows?

What you need to do, is to just publish it. Otherwise you'll never know! - Man up. Publish it and relax.

You wouldn't sell something bad, I can tell. But people are different so some people might find it however they want to find it. They can see it as poor quality or whatever, but in reality, both you and me know that's not the case. But some buyers are always idiots. When you decide to sell a product. What would you do?

haha cheers Andre! For the positive pep talk! You're right! I know. I will, but I just want to make sure it has some wow factor so that people have no choice but to leave me a positive feedback lol. But of course, we don't live in a perfect world and you can please most of the people, most of the time. But you can't please all of the people all of the time. But yeah, damn straight I'm going to publish it. Hopefully before Christmas I just need to finish the new sections I keep adding to it. Why can't I just write some simple 2 page guide why does it have to turn into something with more words than the bible!? LOL Well that's just not me is it!? When you decide to sell a product. What would you do?

I'm not sure of the best way Andre and I think it really depends on the type of ebook you want to sell. For example the next ebook I write I want to test out Amazon Direct Kindle Publishing and see how that works for me. You can only do that if the ebook you are publishing has not been published elsewhere and you are not allowed to sell it anywhere else for 90 days!

I sold a good few copies of my ebook on ListingDock and a few on another marketplace. I am very interested to hear what everyone says!

First of all, I would only write an ebook about something very important to me, something that I'm really passionate about and would love to inform and share my knowledge with other people about that particular subject.

Second, I need to figure out who I'm writing this ebook for and if there is a significant portion of people that may be interested in my subject.

Third. I would define the ebook's structure, stuff like chapters and important points.

Fourth. Fill up the gaps between until the ebook is complete.

Fifth and final point: Give it away for free in a clever marketing campaign!

I do not see a much problem here of when I decide to sell a product, what to do. I mean discovering the problems affecting people around me and finding ways by which I will profer solutions to the problems is a sure way to knowing how to sell my products. I will always take my product to a place where it is needed.

I never managed to make a product. So that's something I am still struggling with. I guess I have to learn how to in that case. I'd say the best part about making the products is we have to find out what we can sell and what we have in our options. So there are times when the product sales maybe easy due to customer knowing what's good and bad in the offer. I think I have to check the ebook writing and selling part here. Who knows it may work out.
