Monetizing a Blog by Selling E-books to Your Audience
Ebooks can help in blogging for money and monetizing your writing skills. This is one of the breakthroughs that technology brings home. As a writer, you’d initially have to go through a publishing house, a printing press and finally a distribution center to get your book out there for readers to buy.

That all has changed now, as you no longer need to go through the entire chain, and just run the same process through a computer.

Collection of books

If you’re considering making money with WordPress, creating ebooks and selling them it’s low in capital and cost in terms of storage space, printing cost, and delivery fee. Thus, creating and selling an ebook is already measurable and convenient.

So, you’re probably wondering how to make money blogging by creating and selling your ebook?
The steps required to create an ebook and making money on WordPress are quite straightforward, however, additions to these steps depend on the complexity of the ebook’s subject. For instance, if you’re writing about general health tips for an average 30-year-old, it could be simple and straightforward. The content of your ebook will most likely contain a nutrition table, listicle of food to snack on during the day, types of exercise and examples of people that are adopting this lifestyle.

Planning an ebook

However, if you’re going into a more sophisticated subject matter, like ‘Know when to sell your stocks’, the subject matter will require more explanation. The complications here are adding more people to the content creation and editing process to make the content more easily understandable.

Usually, the writer runs the ebook chapters through an editor to be able to get a third-person perspective. A graphic designer is then added to the process to add appropriate diagrams, charts and visual aid where necessary. Finally, the ebook’s draft goes through an overall review from a subject matter expert to ensure that the writer covers all parameters of the subject.

Knowing how to create an ebook is one thing, but knowing how to sell one is an important part. Ebooks don’t necessarily need to have a direct price tag for readers to buy. However, here’s how to monetize a blog through ebooks and start making money with WordPress.
