Then pause reading for a moment and say…
Do it now.
You know why?
There are many ways of making money online, but one sure-fire way to make passive income online is creating and selling eBooks and you’re about to learn how!
Let me tell you a story.
A few years ago, I did my NYSC in one state right here in Nigeria… In the village where I served there was limited power supply and internet access was a luxury.
I had to go to climb upwards where some colleagues lived to able to access the internet most times.
It was horrible.
I was already making money online as a freelance writer and transcriber at the time and I even had my own blog before going for NYSC but I could no longer post content regularly because of the internet and electricity challenge in my new environment.
I was waiting to finish my service year before I return back to my online business…
Then something happened.
We were not paid for over two months…
So here I was in a strange land, with no parents or relatives and the government that was supposed to lookout for us had abandoned us for over 60 days.
I had to find a way around this…
I had been helping people start their own businesses and now it was time for me to help myself.
I still had a data subscription that was going to expire.
So I quickly went online and did a research to find out what people in my industry wanted to learn that I could teach.
I went back and packaged my knowledge around that subject into an eBook… (All I had to do was type it into Microsoft word and save as PDF)
I quickly made a post online where they could see it to announce my eBook to them…
I made 10 sales on the first day!
And that’s not the most interesting part of this story…
I have not changed a single word from that eBook but I still get credit alerts for that eBook till today…
Imagine how wonderful it feels to work once and get paid over and over again with no extra effort on your part.
All I have to do now when someone pays for the eBook is to collect their email and send the book to them. It’s as simple as sending an email.
And that’s not all… I have increased the price of the book by 150% and people still pay!!!
Check out the screenshot below...
Why am I telling you all this?
Writing your own eBook is one of the most powerful ways to make extra income and create a passive stream of income that pays you over and over again for the work you do once.
And now is the best time to write and sell your own eBooks.
How do I know this?
The numbers say so…
In 2011, Amazon Kindle the biggest ebook retailer on the planet reported that it sold more eBooks than physical books!
Never have eBooks been so widely accepted or enjoyed by such a wide a range of people... everybody now reads on their phone, tablet or computer!
Think about this… how much impact and profit you could make by writing your own book that speaks to both old and young and makes you money too.
This is possible because smartphones are now very affordable… everyone uses a smartphone.
Another reason is because people are now used to buying things online in Nigeria. This was not the case when I started out... people were afraid to buy anything on the internet!
And that’s why I have decided to share the secrets I have been using to make money writing and selling eBooks online for the past two years.
