What to do with an old e-book I wrote

10 replies
When I first entered into IM a little over a year ago my initial target niche was stress management. Made every newbie mistake in the book, made hardly any money. Wiping the slate clean and starting afresh with all I've learned, but going after different niches.

In the process though I did write a short little e-book on stress management. It's well written and with lot's of great info. I'm wondering if there's anything I can do with it now to make a little money with it.

My thought was to make it PLR and sell it over and over again at fiverr. (My understanding is that you can do this as long as you are clear and upfront that it is PLR material. Please correct me if I'm wrong here!)

Of course, before doing this, I might should remove my affiliate links embedded throughout the e-book. Yes? No?

Any thoughts on what I can do to make a little money with it without delving fully into that niche?

  • You COULD build a sales page for it... Rank it for a few SEO terms... Put an opt-in on it to start collecting emails... and sell it on Flippa as a stress management business.

    If the site is getting a little traffic... Generating leads... Has a product... People can see potential in that and you could probably flip it for a decent amount of money and walk a way with a wad of cash.

      That's exactly what I would do.

    Or give it away as a freebie and build a list with it. I'm sure you can think of a few things to promote to that list later and make some money from it.

    Sell it, give it away as a teaser for list building. Break it into articles. There are many things to do with it. If you're staying in stress the management niche use it to build an optin list. Whatever you do, leave your affiliate links in it. If you give it away encourage others to give it away too. That's the whole idea behind viral marketing. Good luck.

    If you are totally getting out of that niche, then I would sell it as PLR. You don't have to take out your aff links. The PLR buyer will anyway. I've never sold PLR on Fiverr so I'm not sure..but as long as you are open about what it is then I would think you shouldn't have a problem. OR just sell it outright. Maybe create a sales page and put it on Clickbank...

      Thanks. I am looking to get totally out of the niche. I'll look into the best ways to sell it as PLR and go from there. Thanks!

  • Re-package and re-brand, then start selling it again as a 'new' product. Just don't make the same 'newbie' mistakes this time.

    Sending you a PM, btw.

    Start building a content site and give away your Ebook to your subscribers. This is a great way to build relationships with your customers.

    as some of the people said here .. I think the best thing to do is create a sales page and start looking for some affiliates to sell your product ..

    if your book is relatively small give it away for free in change for an optin

    I personally don't think selling it with plr rights is the best idea

    just my 2 cents
