When it comes to pricing your ebooks.

Written by Brian Holte

Are you having a difficult time pricing your ebooks? Don’t feel bad, your not alone. Correctly pricing an ebook is like looking for a needle in a hay stack. There are many factors that come into consideration when pricing your ebooks. Two such factors are supply and demand. Many internet marketers will be upset with me when I say this but I don’t care, unless you have one whopper of an ebook on internet marketing with a truly killer of a USP (Unique Selling Point) your dead inrepparttar water. Ouch...I knowrepparttar 108416 truth hurts but this is reality in my opinion. Withrepparttar 108417 LARGE amount of IM (internet marketing) ebooks onrepparttar 108418 net today andrepparttar 108419 dwindling lack of interest because of some really poorly written ebooks I’d bet their sales have suffered. There are some good ebooks on IM out there, just hard to find. When a guy is offering a $27.00 ebook with $1500.00 worth of bonuses (ok, maybe I’m exaggerating a little) something’s up, wouldn’t you think?

Look atrepparttar 108420 prices of “print books” and base your pricing on that if your really stuck for a figure. Of course this is just a general guideline, some say pricing amounts to psychology and usingrepparttar 108421 right words too hook you. This is true to a certain point. I mean look at allrepparttar 108422 brochures and fliers you read every week, everyone tests, tests, and tests more. Testing comes with a price, it takes manpower to testrepparttar 108423 price feasibility of any product. Another strategy to consider when
