What Makes an E-book Successful

By Borchers Carmella

There are millions of e-books for sale on the internet right now. But some have been hugely successful, selling hundreds of thousands of copies.

Currently, you can find plenty of electronic books, or eBooks for sale online everywhere. Most are actually a form of “how to guide” which tells readers how to accomplish a certain task. However, an increasing number of eBooks sold online are works of fiction, like for example romance books. Online marketing experts and industry analysts all agree that the market for eBooks is growing every day and that it is now worth billions of dollars. If you read news related to the industry, you may have seen stories of successful authors making millions of dollars from their works. Would you like to be one of them? Here are some common elements found in all successful eBooks.

– A good product

People read online books for two main reasons; either to be informed or to be entertained. Your product needs to deliver in one (or sometimes both) of these reasons depending on what kind of book you will be selling. An eBook that is very well written and that is well received by the first people who buy it will then get many positive reviews from buyers, as well as expert reviewers. This will get you a boost in sales after the first round of buyers has gotten your product.

– A well thought of pre-launch

Building some “hype” around an eBook that will be released soon is a great way to generate interest and curiosity around it. You will see this a lot in informational products, but it is also often used for fiction books as well. This element can be even more powerful if you have sold some other books in the past that were well received by their buyers. So if you write erotic books, you will probably already have a following of previous buyers. Make an announcement on your website, on your social media pages, on forums that are related to your genre of book, etc. This will build strong interest in the book before it is even released.

– Solid promotion partnerships

Many of the informational product “gurus” make partnerships with each other where they promote each other’s products in their email lists, social media pages, etc. Even though it can be said that they are competitors, they still manage to find a way to work together in order to better promote their products. This is not a new concept and is not unique to the information product genre. It is not uncommon for authors of fiction books to recommend a certain book by a fellow author to their readers. You can arrange this kind of thing too if you are part of a community where other eBook authors are present.
