1) Taxes – No matter what type of business you run, it is very important that you keep track of ALL expenses and earnings so that when taxes are due you will have everything you need to provide your tax preparation service with.
2) Operation Fees - Even though costs will be far less than owning and renting a retail store filled with paper books, there are some expenses you will have with an online ebook store to deal with.
For example: You will want to accept credit cards on your site. Most credit card processors only charge a one-time setup fee and then only charge a percentage of each sale you make thereafter.
You will also need a place to store your files and pictures on internet so that they can be retrieved for viewing by potential customers. For this you will need a web hosting service. These can be set up for once-a-month billing all way to once-a-year billing. It all depends on your hosting companies package deals.
3) Marketing – In order to make sales people must find you. A few ways to market your items for sale range from search engine placement, paid advertising, link swapping, joint ventures and article writing. Marketing can prove to be a tough process, but is very necessary for success of your business.
4) Web Site Setup/Design – This may be considered an enjoyable thing by some people, but unless you hire a web design company to create a themed layout for you and if you’re not familiar with web site design this can be a time consuming process.
On other hand, by doing web site work yourself can prove to be an excellent opportunity to learn about web site design and management so that you can add or delete pages at any time you feel necessary.
Hopefully this article has convinced you that ebooks are definitely a great product to start a business with.
