How I Made $100k+ Selling Low-Ticket eBooks

I’m an Architect. This means I knew nothing about selling online when I started.

However, I had a blog. A men’s fashion blog. Simply out of passion.

I didn’t intend to make any money from it. It was a passion project. I was curating the outfits I liked and occasionally wrote my thoughts about how men should dress.

One day, I read an article somewhere that talked about selling ebooks. I always thought “writing a book” means writing 300 pages. But that article showed how I can write a 20-page ebook and sell it. I was blown away.

I decided to give it a try. So, I literally pasted the article in a word document, added a few relevant images, converted it to a PDF. It was 13 pages. Half of those pages were images. No index, no formatting. Nothing. It literally took me an hour to do it.

First I gave it away for free to my subscribers. They loved it. After a few days, I decided to put a price on that. $2. Honestly, I was scared as shit to put a price on a PDF document. I felt like a scammer.

I sent the links to my subscribers and boom … made 3 sales the same day. I didn’t have a large list. It was around 500. I couldn’t believe I made $6 (98% of that was profit) from selling a PDF.

I was hooked. Learned more. Improved the ebook. Increased the price from $2 to $9. And I sold more. It was crazy. I felt like I found a fucking gold mine. In a way I did.

At that time I was also posting on Instagram. I grew my following from 0 to around 20k followers. I started promoting my ebook on IG. Sales grew. 2 to 5 sales a day. $20 to $50 a day. It was crazy.

All of these happened in a matter of 2 to 3 months. Now, I was convinced that selling ebooks is a legit business model and I can make a bank doing that. I started focusing more on growing my IG and email list.

Slowly my sales were going up.

From 2 sales a day to 10 sales a day.

From 10 sales a day to 30 sales a day.

One day I got 73 sales. $700+ in a day.

It was crazy money. Never expected.

Never thought selling ebooks can be so profitable. I was blown away.

I kept on improving my sales copy, product images, and pitch. Made more money. In the last 2 years,

I sold 20k copies of the ebook I created 2 years ago. That’s more than $170k+ in ebook sales.

Since then I’ve created 20+ ebooks and sold way more. But to this day I sell at least 10 copies of the ebook I created 2 years ago.

I could get these results even when English is not my first language. I’m not a good writer (yet). I'm not a world-class expert on the subject. It’s crazy how simple this is.

On top of that, I achieved all of the above while running a full-time architectural agency. I used to work at night for about 2 hours every day. That’s it.

If you’re working a 9-5, you can do it too.

Even if you only make $1000/month.

That extra $1000/month will change your life in ways you can’t imagine.

That’s exactly why I push everyone so hard to sell ebooks. It’s life-changing money. Without working crazy hours.

The game is stupid simple. Anyone who’s ready to work can make this work. It’s no rocket science. It’s a system.

I’ve systemized the entire thing. I’ve documented everything I did to go from $0 to 6 fig in ebook sales. All the moving parts in a simple step-by-step system.

If you're ready to take action. Follow the process. Put in the work. I can help you make life-changing money selling ebooks.

I've created a step by step game plan.

    This all sounds a little to good to be true.

    Well, good for you! Do you have a name?
    I guess the "technology" for making and marketing ebooks has been everywhere for some time. But if you claim that you have a good system for turning a regular person into an ebook hustler, for pouring fire into his belly, so to speak, sensibly via one-on-one personal coaching that could be a useful and valuable proposition.

      Nice designs! Maybe start figuring out what your target buyer looks like? Are you looking for buyers who want custom designs or the once you already did?

      Hey Gaurav! Would love to have a chat about your designs, do you have a Discord account?

      1. 1

        I have a discord id discord @grvkmrpandit#5345

      Good work. Find a hook / theme people know. For example, your work looks just like the mobile game monument valley. So if you promote, mention your art as monument valley inspired. Then go find monument valley communities.

      As a side note, we do 3d renderings. Have you explored your style into a 3D floor plan?
