How much would you pay for a 7000 words health e-book?

9 replies
Hello,
I recently wrote a 7000+ words e-book (27 pages) on the topic of health and medicine, and published it on Kindle. It was doing pretty well while I was promoting it but now I'm tired of all the marketing and I need money fast.
I was wondering if there is a way to sell this e-book to someone who's willing to do the promotion.
Do people buy already written e-books?
And if they do, what would be a reasonable price, for a proof-read book written by a medical field professional?

I would really love to hear your thoughts on this!
Thank you for reading

    People do purchase pre-written eBooks. Price will depend on prior earnings, potential and quality of what you are offering (7000 words is not a lot). Of course you will have to unpublish it and provide a copyright transfer to the new owner so they are able to republish without issues.
    There are a number of places you can sell it including online forums, marketing sites, FB groups that allow it etc. Good luck!

    I would be looking to spend a minimum of $200.00 Although if you do not really care about the quality you can probably spend a lot less

      Al, she's talking about selling the rights to an already published book.

      My guess is that she's far more concerned about the other side of the coin - how much can she sell it for, rather than how little can she get away with paying for it.

        Well then I guess it would be depending on if this was going to be a one off sale or sold as PLR. If the quality was good, unique, helpful, and sellable then I would stick to my original $200.00 figure. But if sold as plr to multiple buyers I would not pay more than $30.00

    As a freelance writer I do this all the time. I charge my typical rate which would be $70.00 for a 7,000 word book. Now, this is based on sites like Upwork and Freelancer where people want to pay $10 for 1000 words.

    If the book is quality and you include a cover, description and maybe some additional marketing material that the customer can use to promote and maybe even a sales page, web site or additional items to sweeten the deal then you can get $1,000 - $2,000 or more depending on the value the customer may see in it. Also, you need to look at the resell value. You are selling a kindle book at $2,99 which is a $2,00 profit per sale. If the book is also in print, has an audio version as well then the price can increase.

    As it stands you are looking at $70.00 as your sale price. If you shop around for a client to purchase, adapt the book for their specific needs the sky is the limit. How much work are you looking to put into it. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like some additional advice.

    Good luck

    I think it depends on if you are planning on selling it and it's rights to one person or multiple.

    It all depends on who you get to sell it to and the value they see in the product.

    It depends on the quality of the book and the popular of the topic you wrote about. For me, I would spend a minimum of 100$ for your book. I think it is a reasonable price
