Sell From Your Website

You can always sell your PDF ebook from your own website. There are many different free e-commerce programs you can use to set up your own online store.

Which will mean you will no longer be splitting the profits with ebook vendors. Another positive of selling from your own site though is that you can set up your own affiliate program. This means that you can offer a commission to Internet users who are will to help you sell your book.

While this still means you will be splitting the profit once again, it also means that you’ll have the opportunity to recruit hundreds of people interest in helping you to sell your book on commission. Which in turn, can result in you selling countless copies that you wouldn’t have otherwise sold.

The downside about selling the books on your own is you’re vulnerable to pirating. And it means you may not have access to the large audience that you would have through the large ebook vendors.
