It’s no secret that the best way to make money online is to create and sell your own products. The problem is, most people don’t know where to start.

I’ve been writing ebooks for about two years now, and I’ve learned a lot of lessons the hard way. I’ve made a lot of mistakes and I’ve spent a lot of time and money on things that I could have done differently.

This step-by-step guide will show you the exact steps you need to take to create a product, sell it online, and make money. It’s all laid out, with screenshots and everything.

What is an ebook?

An ebook is a digital book that can be read on a computer, tablet, or e-reader. It’s a great way to enjoy reading without having the heft and weight of paper books around.

Ebooks are becoming more and more popular, with many people preferring them over physical copies for their convenience and ease of use.

So what is an ebook? In short, it’s an electronic copy of a traditional book that you can read online or download onto your device (computer, tablet or e-reader) to take anywhere!

What are the benefits of selling ebooks online?

The main benefit to you is that it gives you an easy way to make money! The other advantage is that nobody has a physical copy of your book, so they can’t go out and sell it themselves. You get all the credit for what you’ve created, which means more then enough to make you happy.

The Process of Creating an Ebook

Have you ever wondered how an ebook is created? Or how long it takes to create one, or what all goes into the process of writing and publishing a book? If so, this post will answer your questions.

Anyone can publish an ebook these days. But what’s the process of actually creating one?

I’ll share with you the steps and resources that I used to create my first book: “The Process of Creating an Ebook.”

I’ll also walk you through some templates for common ebook publishing formats. You might be surprised by how quickly it is to put together your own ebook!

Let’s Get Started

Step 1: Find a niche market for your ebook

The first thing you’ll need to know is what your niche market will be. There are a few ways you can find this out:

– Brainstorming

– Your own experience in the field of interest  or expertise  may help with this task, as will friends and family members who may have knowledge or experience in the niche you’re looking for.

– How popular are the topics?  How much information is already out there on these subjects?  Be sure to check Amazon and iTunes for book listings as well, where a number of books can be found relating to your idea or focus area.

– How can you make your ebook different or better than the competition?

This last question is a key one to ask. If there are already several books on the subject, how will yours be unique or provide superior content in comparison?

This might mean adding personal stories, new information that hasn’t been reviewed before, more interviews with experts such as doctors and researchers who work in this field regularly – anything that sets your book apart from others.

Step 2. Create an outline of the book and write it in Microsoft Word

Now that you know what niche market you want to write about (or have an idea of what it should be), brainstorm everything you could possibly put into each chapter so far.

A few months ago, I started to write a book about how to create and sell ebooks online for beginners.

I had a lot of information in my head but I couldn’t make sense of it when I started writing, so I needed an outline before starting on the text itself. This is what helped me:

– Write down everything you know about your topic or niche market (write as many points as possible)  – Put them all under one single point called “What people need to know” or something similar;

– Make sure each step below this has its own title that summarizes what they are covering – This will help you with the overview later on as well!

I used to write an entire book but also create an outline of the content in Microsoft Word before getting down into any of the meaty sections.

I’ve found that breaking up the content into chunks and then writing those sections individually before coming back to link them together has been more helpful for my writer’s brain.

It also means less time is spent on any one section, which makes it easier to maintain concentration throughout the process of drafting a book.

It’s a good idea for anyone who is writing anything from blog posts to essays that require deeper thinking than just stringing words together without much thought like most people do nowadays.  The time invested up front will pay dividends by helping you stay focused, which means less editing and polishing down the line!

Step 3: Proofread the Ebook after writing

Proofreading should always be done after finishing an ebook. Proofing your work will take more than just checking for grammar, as you’ll also need to check spelling, layout and flow. This article covers all of these aspects and gives some tips on how best to tackle them.

It may seem like an obvious thing but teaching non-native speakers English can be really challenging if they don’t have much time to practice or get feedback from native English speakers who know what mistakes are common among learners of their language.

– This is crucial in ensuring your work is free of any major errors, typos or other mistakes that may be hard to spot when you’re writing.

– It’s also a good idea to proofread the content before publication as this will help minimise problems with formatting and make sure the book looks professional.

– You can either do it yourself by reading through everything carefully one last time, or ask someone else (including friends) who has no connection to what’s being written for their opinion on whether there are any sorts of confusing points within the text.

Step 4: Create the ebook cover

The ebook cover is arguably the most important part of your entire book. It’s the first thing readers see and it can make or break whether they buy it or not. Designing a good ebook cover isn’t easy, but if you follow these tips, you’ll be on your way to success!

If you want to create an effective ebook cover design that will help boost sales of your product then there are some things to keep in mind:

Create a cover that reflects the topic of your book. For example, if you’re writing a cookbook then show pictures of food on the front cover rather than an abstract painting or something similar.

This will make it instantly relatable to what people are looking for and they’ll be more likely to buy it because they know it’s going to help them with their problem.

The title should also reflect the content in some way – this doesn’t mean just using words from within your ebook but pulling out key phrases and sentences which summarize its core message and putting those titles on each chapter too.

You want prospective readers not only to see what topics your eBook covers but also how much information there is inside (which can give them a good feeling

Step 5. Format the document to be a PDF file, using Adobe Acrobat Pro or another program that can convert files into PDF format.

There are several formats available today including PDFs, Kindle ebooks (which come in mobi or azw filetypes), printable versions with paperback covers ready for upload onto online selling sites like Lulu OR – I recommend trying each one at least once so you get a feel for the pros and cons of each.

Step 6: Sell your ebook online

After you are done writing your ebook, you can start selling it online to make money.

1. Find a platform for your ebook

2. Set up an account and upload your book to the site

3. Price it appropriately, taking into consideration how much you want to make from each sale

4. Decide on a distribution model (e-book only or print as well) and set up pricing accordingly

5. Promote the ebook by sending out emails to friends, family, colleagues, etc., with links back to the store page where they can purchase it.

Promote it on relevant websites or blogs, such as Udemy or Medium

To sell your ebook online, you can either sell it on your website or on platforms like Amazon.

You can also promote your book on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter as well as through email lists .

To sell your ebook on Amazon, you will need to create an account and then fill out a listing for each of the ebooks.


To truly make money online, you’re going to need a product to sell. That product doesn’t have to be complex or exclusive — a few minutes of reading here or there will teach you enough to create something that can be used by many people. How to Create and Sell Ebooks Online for Beginners is one of the best resources I’ve found for beginners to learn the basics of book creation and selling.
