There are several ebook publishing myths you need to know about before you get into writing your own material.

Some of these ebook publishing myths have unfortunately prevented upcoming authors from demonstrating their expertise.  Here is the real skinny on what is in fact FACT.         ecover-100

The number one ebook publishing myth we hear is that no one reads ebooks.

  • FACT

    The Internet is loaded with people who read ebooks; particularly in business related, marketing, educational, and technological market niches.
    Ebooks satisfy the ‘instant gratification’ need of individuals who want their product now, sooner than later.  People who sincerely desire information on a subject, naturally do not to want to wait for that information.So, if you think that no one is reading an ebook in your market niche; it’s probably because no one has yet written an effective ebook for it.

Second only to the ebook publishing myth that no one reads ebooks is that their authors are not taken seriously.

  • FACT

    The truth to this ebook publishing myth, is that nothing could be farther from it.
    This myth originated years ago from print publishers who derided the quality of ebooks that were available at that time.  An unfair stigma arose, that was attached to all e-book writers and remained that way for quite a while.
    Although it’s true that there are a lot of poor quality ebooks on the Internet, there are also a good number of print books in the market that deserve the same stigma.
    Most ebooks in targeted market niches now are of good quality, and authored by reputable publishers.  Building your reputation within your market niche is key to succeful ebook publishing.

The third ebook publishing myth we hear about is that there is no money in writing an ebook.

  • FACT

    There is a ton of money to be made writing high quality targeted informational ebooks.
    People want information, and they want it fast; which is precisely why ebooks are so popular online.  Print books provide the same information, but usually at a higher cost and a longer wait.
    Additionally, ebooks are often sold at a premium because of their lower publication costs. The actual amount of money you make on your ebook is entirely dependent on the topic, your marketing niche, your reputation, and your marketing abilities.

The fourth ebook publishing myth we hear about is that ebooks are too difficult to market.

  • FACT

    Ebooks are in fact more easily marketable than printed publications.
    If you already market your business products or services on your website or blog, you already have the skill sets necessary to adequately market your own ebooks.  Or, you can get others to sell your ebooks for you through an affiliate marketing network, which essentially removes the burden of marketing from you.
    Sites such as Amazon or Clickbank, also serve as a marketplace if you have no active web presence and don’t care to set up an affiliate marketing network of sellers.

The fifth ebook publishing myth is that ebooks take a long time to write.

  • FACT

    Ebooks can be any length you like.
    If you can write an article for your website or ezine, you can create an ebook.  An ebook doesn’t have to be any longer than 100 pages, in fact many online are less than 50 pages and selling well.
    Ebooks can be broken down into manageable parts, like a bunch of small articles with a common thread.  You can really fly through an ebook when you break it down into smaller manageable articles and focus on each section, or chapter, separately.

If any of these ebook publishing myths have prevented you from writing an ebook, you should reconsider your fears and give it a try.
