    Why not sell on both and see which one works out better for you. A split test if you will. Personally, if I was looking for your material, I probably wouldn't look on amazon. I would just google it and search the results.

    If you have army of affiliates to promote your product, then go for clickbank. Kindle is best for free traffic from amazon.
    Personally, I prefer clickbank.

    Forget clickbank, I would go with Amazon. Think about it from a customers point of view, would you ever buy shit off of clickbank?

      About 200 million customers in 190 countries did just that.

    I agree amazon or ebay would be the best place to promote something like this, or maybe even football related forums.

    It depends on how much you want to sell your eBook for?

    $9.99 and up, (Clickbank) or $0.99 to $2.99 ? (Amazon)

    Selling an eBook on Amazon, and making a significant income, (unless you are a well established author, or a very experienced marketer) is very difficult.

    Most eBooks on Amazon are priced on average $0.99 to $2.99.
    You have to sell allot of units for this to even make sense.
    If you price your eBook at $9.99, then you better be very good at convincing
    people to open up their wallet and give you that $10 for a kindle eBook.
    Again, that's if you are "not" a well established author, or a very experienced marketer.

    People that claim Amazon is a significant revenue generator, are those that promote "how to make money with Kindle" products. People that buy these products, learn that it's not easy (for most) to move eBooks on Amazon and earn more than a few peanuts.

    Clickbank can also be challenging for many marketers, but it will at least allow you to price your item higher, and you could add in bonuses etc. If you want to increase the perceived value, you could even create an audio version, and other extras to go with your product. At this point you can even charge $19.99 etc. Thus you don't need to sell as many units in order to earn the same $ as you would on Amazon with your low priced Kindle eBook.

    I have to agree with the second poster, Shuffle. I lift weights 5 times a week. Even though I know there are tons of weightlifting books on Amazon, I never purchase any of them. I don't even bother looking on Amazon.

    I google stuff like, "bicep exercises," and take it from there. A few weeks ago I purchased a booty (excuse me, gluteus maximus) exercise ebook from a trainers website. I know that the good 'in-the-trenches' usually isn't found on Amazon.

    If you want the benefit of affiliates, then Clickbank is probably the better choice. But if you just want to sell a fantasy football ebook, you really don't need Amazon or Clickbank. Most of your potential customers are going to start with Google first. Your website would be just as good a place as Clickbank or Amazon.

    I would also try to make it the "go-to" viral ebook in whatever forums fantasy football people hang out in. Word of mouth for the internet.

    Both. They're both 2 awesome sites that can help you to sell your ebook. Best way to tell though is by testing. If i were you, i would put your ebook on BOTH sites.... and just keep them on there. What's the harm in that? The worst thing that can happen is that you'll only get 1 sale... forever.

    But hey, small check is better than no check...right?
