How to Publish an eBook and Profit From It – The Final Conclusion

Congratulations to you if you have managed to follow, and more importantly implement, what we have gone through together over the last several weeks.

When I started the how to publish an eBook series my goal was to walk you through the entire process of researching, compiling, marketing and selling your eBook successfully on the Internet based on my experience selling now over 20 eBooks successfully on the Internet.

Over the last several posts and well over 25,000 words later, it’s been a fun journey and thank you for walking it with me. I’d like to finish this series by providing some final thoughts to consider. But before that, this is how we arrived here:

So once again, many congratulations to you. The ones that succeed in life in whatever they do are those that take action. There is a lot of information that has been covered in this series on how to publish an eBook successfully, well over 25,000 words of theory and practical guidance that now needs to be implemented (and maybe you have already started so even better).

I have poured everything I know in this series and you have everything you need to succeed with profiting from eBooks.  How much you make and how much you succeed is now all up to you.  But the beauty of it is that you are 100% in control of your own destiny. You can choose how well you want to do from here on.

And if you are thinking whether you will succeed, I’d say do not worry about it. Do your best and see what happens.  As I often say, focus on excellence (in this case execution) and success is inevitably going to follow. Many people have it the other way around as they continue to chase success and never get there because the forget to focus on what’s important.

If you start to worry about the outcome right now, you might never get yourself to start. The Internet is very forgiving. It allows us to make quick changes as we move along so you will have multiple opportunities to continuously tweak and optimize your initiative as you move along with the process.

Don’t be too anxious about the results either. Success doesn’t happen overnight. But when it does, it tends to come in bunches like a waterfall. To give you some perspective, I didn’t sell my first eBook copy until 6 months into the process. I procrastinated with compiling the sales page and then marketing my eBook.  But when I sold that first copy, everything started to snowball after that up to this point, and I am nowhere done either 🙂

Also understand that what you can accomplish with an eBook may just be a start to something much bigger. An eBook is a platform, or a stepping stone for many to get to their end destination, may that be a consulting practice, speaking engagements, political agenda, a big contract with a big name publisher or anything else. The possibilities are endless. So while you may think you have only  learned how to publish an eBook, you have really learned how to effectively position yourself to achieve a potentially much, much bigger target.

You can also convert your eBook to an audio book or a video series, instantly repurposing content into new avenues which you can also sell online.  The beauty of doing that is that once your information product is created, you can repeatedly benefit from it over time.

While publishing an eBook is one of the best ways to accomplish multiple purposes, such as building a brand name, subject matter authority and earning passive income online, understand that succeeding at this initiative is a PROCESS, one that we have gone through in depth together over the last several weeks.  So execute the process, have some patience and understand that it is just a matter of time before you succeed.

I do my best to answer all questions and comments left on this blog, so please come back and ask questions as well as share your thoughts and concerns.

On a final note, as I have stated repeatedly, creating and selling an eBook online is one of the most turnkey and passive methods to generate residual income online. I have been doing it for years, releasing a few eBooks each year, now totaling over 20 live and selling successfully online all on a passive and residual basis.

I also want to reiterate that if I can do it, there is no reason you can’t do it much better than I did. I am not technically savvy, nor is English my first language. It is my fourth! And before you eliminate the possibility of profiting from publishing an eBook because you don’t think you can write, read this article and throw that false belief out of the window right now.

I hope you found value in my experiences outlined in this series and are able to replicate the process to succeed online as well. I have done my best to provide practical and actionable guidance that you can immediately implement, and I loved every bit of compiling this series (my first one).

Please let me know if I missed any part of the process, or if there is anything else that you’d like more discussion or emphasis on. It is my hope that this series is the only resource you will ever need to publish and eBook and profit from it on a passive and residual basis with or without your own website or blog.

Bookmark this page and come back to it and let me know in the comments below if have any questions as you now embark on your own journey. I will be keeping an eye out for it and I’d be happy to help.

And just so that I know how I am doing, I’d love to hear your feedback on this series.  Please help me shape up the direction of this blog going forward. Email me your thoughts at sunil {at} extramoneyblog {dot} com.

If you enjoyed this series, I’d also appreciate it if you Tweet it so others can find it and benefit from it. And if you haven’t yet, please come say hi to me on Facebook.

Wishing you all the best on your journey to profiting nicely from eBooks.

  1. Hey Sunil – just wanted to drop you a quick note and tell you that this series has inspired me to move forward with my first eBook. Though I am a bit nervous on how to market it (asking my site visitors to buy something), I realize it is a critical strategy that I must employ.

    Hopefully you will turn this series into an eBook too!

    • Sunil says:

      funny you mention – it certainly has the length and the value in my opinion. should we put it out there for $9.99 and see how it does?

      I have discovered a new way to effectively market an ebook on Amazon. it’s worked like a charm for me. I will write a post on it.

    • Your domain name made me laugh. So when you are done with the debt, will you change the domain name?

      BTW, never be scared of asking your readers to buy something. You can pitch it t o them in form of survey, ask them what they need and how much they can pay for it.

      You own the market so study what they will likely pay for and give it to ’em.


  2. Thanks for this great series. Like John, I’ve resolved to put together an eBook too, thanks in part to this helpful set of posts. At this point my eBook is just a concept; lots of work ahead.

    HI Sunil,

    I stopped by when you first launched the ebook series. At that time I had thought I was finished writing my first book, which was 76 pages at that time. I am happy to say that I have officialy completed the editing process and the formatting process, and it is now a 149 page ebook! 🙂

    I wanted to thank you for motivating me and for being an inspiration. I appreciate all of your advice. I still have a copy of your check from the free ebook hanging on my wall…lol

    Now that I have reached these milestones, I had a few questions?

    My marketing plans includes Kindle, KDP Select, smashwords, BandN and I am building the mini site right now as we speak. I am confused if I should launch my book on amazon first and go into the kdp select program for a while to help get rankings up and then launch the website once the book is established on Kindle. My reasoning is that I hear you can’t get into to kdp select, if you have the book listed for sale somewhere else and I also hear that kdp select can give a huge boost on the charts. So I am at stand still on this one. What are your thoughts?

    My other questions is if I should just launch everything all at the same time, so that I am past the publication stage and officially focused solely on marketing?

    Thanks again!
    oh and btw this is the only blog I have ever followed! Thought you should know that.

    Hey, ho

    just quick note “Tweet this” beside “Spread the Love!” is not working as it should 🙂

    article wise, I gave it to my friends so they can release some doubts they have 🙂


  5. Usually I do not learn from posts on blogs, but I would like to say that this write-up very compelled me to check out and do so! Your writing taste has surprised me. Thanks, very great article.

    One truth about marketing is it’s a lot easier to sell more to a few people than it is to sell to a lot of people. For most small business owners, the real money, the millions in income, is in the niches.

    • Sunil says:

      good point. it’s certainly easier, and in many cases more lucrative to maintain existing relationships than to acquire new ones. tell us more about your niche?

  6. This series has inspired me in the launch of my first ebook, “How to Make Money Writing for the Web.” I’m still getting ready to put your sales page advice into action, but I’ve already sold almost 30 copies as is. After that… it’s Clickbank time.
    Thanks for your encouragement Sunil and good luck to my fellow ebook authors.

  7. Hi Sunil,

    I just wanted to tell you that I thoroughly enjoyed this series as well. Thank you for providing so much value. You’re alright in my book (excuse the pun)!

    Hi sunil, Thanks for these great pillar posts. Time to start writing……..

  9. wilson says:

    just wanted to say your series has inspired me and given me the confidence to make a start on my e-book, have only done 2 pages so far
    sad to see this is the last article on this series

    • Sunil says:

      2 pages is 2 pages! a few more to go 🙂 every series has to end, but by no means the end of the discussion. please shoot out any questions at any time. I will do my best to help. please keep me updated on your progress and all the best

    Hey Sunil!

    This series was awesome! I just stumbled on it in time to start marketing my first product, which is a guide… not an Ebook. 😀

    Lots of useful information here.
