Can You Profit Selling PDF eBooks?

Aug 18, 2007
If you were to buy the rights to resell a single PDF eBook, and repeatedely resell this eBook to many customers, you can make a enormous amount of money. Furthermore, if you give an eBook away for FREE, you can more often that not, generate even more sales and build a multitude of additional income streams.

The PDF eBook market is becoming a hugely competitive field, with many new eBayers realising the profit potential of selling eBooks on eBay, due to their high profit - no or low cost nature, but is far from a becoming a saturated market - due to a persons everlasting need for information. If you play on this need you can make even more money by giving your customers something a little sweeter in the form of additional free bonuses.

Just think about it, if you were selling ebooks, and two of your competitors giving away a free eBook with every eBook purchased, who who reap the bulk of the sales? The competition of course! So always try to offer an ebook FREE with every eBook you have for sale, as long as this eBook is related to the eBook sold. Certain eBooks over time can lose popularity and not sell so well on eBay, and these are the eBooks you give away as bonusues.

You can also offer FREE information reports, which I recommend highly. You can write a simple report or simply hire a ghost writer to write the report for you. This report should provide real value to your customer, and allow you to appear as an authority in your chosen field. This will increase sales and refer many more customers your way. Within my reports I like to embed affiliate links for which I receive commissions - long after the report has been given away.

I highly recommend that you allow your customer to give away the same report as a free bonus too, multiplying the chances of generating further passive commissions for you.

Giving an eBook or report - or in fact, anything away for FREE may sound counterproductive in the initial term, although, this really is not the case. Using a free giveaway tool will bring in multiple benefits such as additional eBook sales, affiliate commission sales, subscribers and added trust between you and your customer. Your auction may stand out more, give an additional reason to buyers to make their purchase with you, and even provide additional revenue through the use of affiliate links within the free item.

To sum up, it is easy to see why many eBay PDF eBook sellers are using FREE giveaways to increase profitability to their eBook business. I highly suggest that if possible, this system should be used at every opportunity to sell eBooks on eBay successfully.
