So you've written an ebook, congrats!
But now you're wondering how to turn that ebook into cash.
One option is to create a PDF of your book and sell it online.
Here are five ways to do just that.
The great thing about selling your PDF on your own website is that you get to keep all of the profits.
You can set your own price and promote your PDF however you see fit.
The downside is that you'll have to do all of the work yourself, from setting up a payment system to designing a sales page.
But if you're willing to put in the elbow grease, selling your PDF on your website is a great option.
Gumroad is a platform that lets you sell digital products like ebooks and PDFs.
Setting up an account is quick and easy, and Gumroad takes care of all the transaction fees so you can keep more of the money you make.
They also have a handy 'buy now' button that you can add to your website or social media posts, making it easy for people to purchase your PDF.
The downside of Gumroad is that they take a small percentage of each sale, so you won't be able to keep as much of the profits as if you were selling it on your own site.
Payhip is similar to Gumroad in that it's a platform for selling digital products.
They also have 'buy now' buttons that make it easy for customers to purchase your PDF.
One neat feature of Payhip is that they offer discounts and coupons, which can be a great way to encourage people to buy your PDF.
And like Gumroad, Payhip takes a small percentage of each sale.
Fiverr is primarily known as a marketplace for freelancers, but did you know that you can also sell digital products on there?
Just create a gig offering your PDF for sale, and set your price (it doesn't have to be $5!).
Fiverr does take a cut of each sale, but they also have a large base of users which can help increase visibility for your gig.
Plus, if you offer discounts or add extras like 1-on-1 support, you can increase your earnings even more.
If you want to make more money from your PDF than what you could by selling it outright, another option is to create an ebook from it instead.
You can still sell the ebook on platforms like Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing or Draft2Digital, but with an ebook you can also enroll it in Kindle Unlimited, or offer it for free through sites like BookFunnel (which will help promote other paid books as well).
Ebooks generally have higher price points than individual PDFs too, so this could be a great option if you're looking to boost earnings from your book.
In summary, there are many different ways that you can profit from a PDF version of your book.
Selling it on platforms like Gumroad or Payhip makes it easy for customers to purchase and download your book, while creating an ebook gives you the opportunity to earn more money per sale.
It's up to you which route you want to go.
Do some research and experiment until you find the method that works best for you and your book.
