I just got a package with a few hundred public domain books (mostly PDF, but a few in txt or doc). I also have the usual reservoir of RR and MRR ebooks.
I was thinking of creating a shopping cart site with all of the books listed for sale, along with instant digital download. Thats the easy part (uploading and organizing the bookds takes time).
FIRST - Do you think this is a good business idea, or is it kind of played out?
SECOND - Do you think (if it is a good idea) it would be valuable to sell hosted versions of the site? So other marketers could have their own version?
I already offer an ecommerce package, so getting the data uploaded and organized would take time, and setting up the hosted versions isn't so bad... I would just hate to spend the time if it wasn't going to be worth it as a business or as a service.
