With so many different types of eBooks to choose from, how do you choose the right ones to sell?
The easiest way to decide is by looking at what is currently selling, or has sold, on eBay already.
To do that, simple do a search on the eBook that you are interested in selling to see if people are actually buying it.
Let’s say you are interested in selling an eBook about Crock Pot Recipes for your Slow Cooker. All you need to do is a quick search for the term “Crock Pot Recipes”, including putting your term in quotes so that it will return a more targeted search and eliminate the junk entries so you can focus only on what you need.
Let’s say that the search has returned 65 listings all selling the same product ranging in price from $ 1.99 to $ 0.75 cents. Some might have more or less recipes, but most are the same as you are interested in selling.
At the moment, all this tells you is that there is a lot of competition for this eBook, but your main focus is not to see how much competition you have, but to see how many of these are actually selling. In the left hand column you’ll notice that you can narrow down your search options. Tick the check box next to ‘Completed Listings’ to only show those listings that have finished.
Now looking at the results, it will show if it does indeed sell well or not, plus how much each eBook has sold for.
This is a good way to decide which products will sell well or won’t sell at all on eBay. It is a much better guide to choosing your eBooks than simply checking out how much competition you may have. It shouldn’t matter how many other sellers are offering the same product. If there is a high demand then you will always be able to sell it and make a profit.
