Selling ebooks is a popular way of making money online, because many people go online in order to find solutions to their problems.
When you provide your Web site visitors solutions with your ebooks, you’ll sell more. But how do you know what solutions to provide?
You start by thinking about problems. There are an endless number of problems people have – they’re overweight, they’re over their credit card limit, they want a job or a better job, and on and on.
Your problem-solving ebooks can provide solutions in an endless variety of areas. Often, ideas for ebooks will come from your own experiences.
Write and sell ebooks based on your own experiences
For example, let’s say that you’re thinking about buying a digital camera so you can take photos at a relative’s wedding. A good digital camera is expensive, and it occurs to you that people who buy digital cameras may be looking for solutions to making money with their camera.
So you research whether “making money with your digital camera” is a real problem people have. This would fit under the general category of “make money from home”. Many people do have the problem of not having enough money, so that ebook has potential.
Think solutions, not ebook niches (topics)
In Internet marketing, “niches” has become a popular term. You can easily waste time looking for fresh niches in which you can write and sell ebooks. However, unless your ebooks solve problems, they won’t sell.
Where to find problems people have
There are many places you can find out what problems people have for which they’ll buy an ebook solution.

* Asking your friends and relatives about their problems.
When you start to think about the solutions you can provide people, you’ll sell more ebooks. Start today. Everyone has problems – you can provide solutions with your ebooks.
