I'm wondering if any of you ever created an ebook and sold it somewhere.
I for myself am not a big fan of ebooks. Everyone knows, 99% of these monetizing ebooks don't work and it's a waste of money. The only one who's making money is the one who's selling the ebook.

I've written one ebook in my life so far, which was about "How to start a successful forum". I've earned about $700 within two weeks with it and people seemed to like it.
I'm currently in the progress of writing a new ebook which will be HTML based thus having a very nice look and a better reading experience.

What about you?

eBooks are pretty much a waste of time as you just said. I tried making one, but I only made roughly $250-$300 from it. Not a bad amount, but not the amount I would like to have gotten from the time I put into it.

I've never written one, probably never will. Too time consuming imo.

I have done so much coding that everything mixes up whenever i write. So basically its super hard for me to write an ebook.

I did write an ebook once, how to cheat Adfly. Adfly fixed the glitch and everyone charged back. Dahell with ebooks.

I've always wanted to write one but I have the attention span of a nat and find it hard to knuckle down to write anything longer then a few sentences :( .


@linkz soz to bug you as this may be a silly question but I'm curious, where would I find your ebook "How to start a successful forum"?

It's a good idea not to sell something like that today.
