This week I released my first ever eBook, and it's all about creating your eBook and selling and marketing it to the public. It goes from ideas, to writing and from selling on marketplaces and marketing to social media and email lists.
It only took me two years to finally get my arse in gear and focus on writing. I used a free writing tool called WriteNext, which has been fantastic. It allowed me to write distraction-free, and I then transferred that writing over to Google docs.
Once the eBook was complete, I uploaded a PDF to PayHip (similar to Gumroad, but UK based) and shouted about it on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Twitter got the most support and shares, and a day later, I managed to make my first sale. Posting about my first sale sparked a second.
The eBook is also publishing on Draft2Digital which publishes to Amazon, Apple, Rakuten, Barnes & Noble, and many more. You can also use Draft2Digital to convert your eBook to a physical and audiobook, but I think I'll skip that for now. Hopefully, once it's on those marketplaces too, I can make some more sales.
All of this is covered in more detail on my eBook, and you can take a look for yourself here - https://payhip.com/b/REwe
It's small-fry when compared to other Indie Hackers, but I'm super happy, and it's given me the confidence to keep on creating and selling.
