How To Publish An Ebook
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

When I learned how to publish an ebook I knew very little about the topic initially. Every internet marketing website and guide I had read online or purchased told me it was imperative to start creating and marketing ebooks online. When my total novice internet marketing noob brother told me he had a free guide for his site, I knew it was time to learn how to publish an ebook myself.

Deciding What to Write About
Usually this is the easiest part of putting together your PDF, tutorial or guide. Most internet marketers and publishers already have a topic and target audience in mind when they begin writing. The best internet marketers will have already seen some success in a given market and will take the next step to cash in by writing at a minimum a free guide for list building purposes.

Deciding Where and How to Publish an Ebook
More often than not it usually does not actually take that long to develop the content for a downloadable tutorial. By the time most internet marketers actually get to the point of deciding to create a PDF they have already written dozens of posts, articles, and pages of content from which to draw on. The next obvious step then is to decide what actual value the book has and what to charge for it.

The vast majority of PDFs are either sold for the price of your email address (a.k.a. free) or for signing up for a specific action - such as buying one product and receiving other PDFs as bonus content. I have seen this happen many times where books and guides are given away as bonuses with the hopes that some percentage of those downloads will result in joining a list somewhere or purchasing a product from an affiliate link later. A much smaller percentage of PDFs get put up for sale on affiliate networks. Many times these for sale PDFs come complete with the aforementioned free bonus guides - as a way to juice sales of the main product.

Protecting Your Intellectual Property Rights - How to Publish an Ebook Securely
For those who do go the publishing to sell route security is imperative. Affiliate networks do not typically control product distribution, they usually only collect the sales price and handle commissions computation and payment processing. This means for the saleable guides and PDFs a secure means of downloading the product without leaving the download directory open for all to see is a must. There are software products on the market designed to alleviate this concern however, and those same programs also can be setup to deliver free and or bonus guides as well.

Learning how to publish an ebook is one of the most important steps every internet marketing professional must eventually take in order to find consistent success online. Click here to learn the steps involved in writing an ebook and selling it online.
