What Are eBooks
Basically, an eBook is a book, report, guide or information document that is in a digital format and that can be read on any electronic reader device. Ebooks have certainly gained popularity over the past few years due to the Internet and there are several very good reason why they are so popular.
Why Are eBooks So Popular
Ebooks are popular because they can be distributed easily online, they can be downloaded at the click of a button, do not cost the writer any more money to print and do not require storage space like a traditional book. EBooks are great because people can simply store them on their laptop, desktop, iPad, Tablet or phone and as a result, have instant access to them at anytime, anywhere and do not have to carry them around in their bags as they would with a normal book.
The very fact that once an eBook has been created and can be distributed without any extra cost, means that it can be sold for much less money than the price of a traditional book.
You only have to look at all the major book publishers who are now transferring their back catalogues onto downloadable eBook formats, to see just how much in demand eBooks have become!
How Can You Make Money From eBooks

Why Create Your Own eBook
They say that everyone has at least one book in them and this saying really is true. Despite what you may think, you will hold some information or knowledge that other people will want or will find beneficial or interesting. It may be something related to your line of work or profession or it may be something to do with your hobbies or experiences, it may even be tips or solutions to help solve other people’s problems. The fact is, you will have something that other people want and are willing to pay for!
Information is King and more and more individual people have made their fortunes by selling information. If you can offer information that people want and are searching for, you can become very wealthy.
What eBooks To Create
The best selling eBooks are the ones that provide the reader with solutions to their problems or ones that help them in some way or another. ‘How To’ ebooks are very popular and if you can corner a niche market and provide people with solutions to their problems, you will soon be on the road to make a small fortune through your eBook business.
There are certain niches that are very popular and ones that will always attract people’s attention and compel them into purchasing your ebook. The following niches are just a few of the ‘Hot’ topics that always sell well:
Weight Loss, Money Making, Internet Marketing, Self Help, Fitness and Money Saving
Obviously, it is your decision as to what subject you write your eBooks about but the above are all good areas to start. However, these areas are highly competitive and if you are planning on writing about any of the above topics, you should ensure that your content is new, unique and exclusive. People want to learn new information and not recycled information that has been published in hundreds of other publications in the past.
Always remember that you are trying to build a business and that you are trying to build a customer base that will continue to buy your new products in the future. The best way to ensure this is to gain their trust for you to become an authoritative figure in their eyes.
