Written by Jim Edwards and David Garfinkel

The ebook revolution is here! The Internet now makes it possible to come up with an idea, turn it into an ebook, distribute it overrepparttar Internet, and start making money - all in 30 days or less.

Inrepparttar 108467 offline world, 30 days wouldn't typically even be long enough to start getting rejection letters back from publishers.

We say this with confidence because we have both gone from book idea to book sales in a matter of weeks - not once, but many times. Between us, we have 10 ebooks currently selling onrepparttar 108468 Net. Several of our books have brought us five figures in income. Jim holdsrepparttar 108469 record between us with one release that made an astounding $43,000 in 30 days.

Here are two discouraging myths you should be aware of:

Myth #1 - It takes a lot of money to promote an ebook.

Fact: It doesn't. Despite what anyone says torepparttar 108470 contrary, online information publishing is still repparttar 108471 fastest, cheapest and easiest way forrepparttar 108472 "little" guy to earn a nice living online with virtually no risk and very little money (less than $100).

Myth #2: You have to be a writer to make money with ebooks.

Fact: You don't have to be a "writer" in order to create a best selling ebook - and it often helps if you're not!

Maybe you've heard that ebooks don't sell. That's not entirely a myth; in a way, that's true. What sells in bookstores will generally not sell well onrepparttar 108473 Internet. Although author J.K. Rowling has sold more than 100 million copies of her "Harry Potter" books worldwide, it's unlikely she would do well selling her stories in ebook form.

But ebooks sell like hotcakes when they contain PRACTICAL information in ready-to-use form. Not pages of pages of long, flowing prose like you find at Borders and Barnes and Noble. Onrepparttar 108474 Net, people buy step-by-step, cut-to-the-chase information they can use to solve problems in their everyday lives.

eBooks on how to negotiaterepparttar 108475 best price on a car, how to sell your home without paying a real estate agent, how to build muscle mass quickly, and other narrowly focused topics that solve a problem, are selling VERY well - at this very moment!

Why is this so? Becauserepparttar 108476 main reason people are online inrepparttar 108477 first place is to find information - 9 times out of 10, according to a landmark survey.

So if you can interest people in extending their search past looking for free information into purchasing an information-rich, well-organized, ready-made SOLUTION to a pressing problem, you can sell ebooks... You can sell a LOT of them.

Jim has sold more than 5,000 ebooks inrepparttar 108478 last 10 months. David's publishers have asked him not to reveal how many ebooks he's sold, but just type his first and last name into Google and you'll find more than 20,000 Web pages where his name appears. The vast majority of those pages have something to do with one of his ebooks.

The Best Internet Marketing eBooks I've Bought This Year.

Written by Martin Avis

Before I start waxing lyrical about these three books, I must state forrepparttar record that this is my opinion only. I have bought maybe 15 or 20 ebooks this year (yes, I truly believe in investing in my own education), and these three stand out in my mind. Another reader, with other passions may choose differently.

And, this article is only concerned with ebooks that I have purchased from January to June 2002. The best book of all, dollar for dollar, isrepparttar 108466 very excellent 'Make Your Site Sell' by Ken Evoy. But that came out in 2001. You can download a free trial version of this book, to give yourself a taste (with no obligation to buy) from http://www.BizE-zine.com/special_downloads2.htm

What do I look for in an ebook?

1. It has to be well written. I like an easy, friendly read. It must flow logically and not run off at tangents.

2. It must teach me something. I really don't appreciate books that simply rehash stuff that I already know, or can find online for free - however well written they may be.

3. It must be eminently practical. I don't want to be taught theory that is too complicated for my simple brain to put into action.

4. I have to be able to see right away that there is a real money-making potential.
