How to sell eBooks online FAQs
How do I best sell an eBook?
There's no one right way to sell eBooks, as it depends on many different factors. Generally, here are a few things to consider.
Find your target market If you've not yet launched your store, do some research to find out the best niche to target. Find audiences who are desperate for a particular genre, for example.
Create an online presence The key to marketing your eBook business is creating a buzz around its launch. Having social media profiles and marketplace accounts set up will help your visitors discover your store.

Grow your following Don't give up after your first few sales. Selling eBooks online is an ongoing project. Use tools like Google Analytics, Facebook pixel, and Hotjar to understand how your visitors behave and optimize for sales.
How much money can you make from writing an eBook?
Since the eBook market is so competitive, you really need to work hard to make money in the industry. There are two ways you can focus your energy for best results.
First, pour your attention into one or two great books, then work hard to build a buzz around them. With this approach, you're betting on making lots of sales per title.
Second, spend time writing as much as possible, and turning out lots of work. While you might not have a runaway success, you're likely to get return readers buying more than one of your books.
Some people publish eBooks to supplement other income and are happy with a few hundred dollars a year. Meanwhile, other writers make tens or hundreds of thousands.
What type of eBooks sell the most?
The two main factors which should influence what kinds of eBooks you want to sell are (1) the target audience you want to sell to, and (2) your interests, passions, and knowledge.
There's no point marketing at readers that don’t exist or trying to sell a genre of books that you know nothing about.
That said, there are a number of genres and topics that are always popular among eBook readers.
Non-fiction titles about diet and exercise, self-help, crafts and cooking, education and teaching, religion and spirituality, and politics are trending all the time.
And as far as fiction goes, try young adult fiction, supernatural and fantasy, erotica, science fiction, and thriller eBooks.
