Following on from my previous post about selling digital media on Cd-Rom’s and the troubles some sellers have encountered.

Well, there may be an interesting workaround, that can earn you a lot more money, you may read this and think I could never do that…. But ……

Have you ever thought of turning your eBooks into physical books? No?

Well if the thought has never crossed your mind I would suggest you should think about it. Here are some advantages of why you should be considering converting your eBooks to books.

Firstly. You Gain More Credibility within your ‘niche’. Yes, as a book author you instantly gain more credibility as you are seen as an expert.

You Will Get More Exposure. Imagine Your book being seen on the worlds leading online bookstores such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. This gives your name, and therefore your business more exposure.

You Have Another Product To Sell On eBay. With the current eBay rules you cannot sell an eBook as a digitally delivered item or in some cases as CD-Rom. However, if you convert your eBook to a book you instantly have another product to sell on eBay.

You Will Have Another Way To Generate Traffic. You can still add links to your existing products or websites in your book, just as you would with an eBook.

You Will Have Another Way To Generate An Affiliate Income. Yes, you can still generate an affiliate income from your book and you will be shown exactly how to do it.

You Will Have Another Autopilot Business. If you choose not to sell on eBay and from your website you can still sell from websites such as Amazon and the whole process is 100% automated.

I’m guessing you may be thinking that the book publishing process is hard work. Well once you see what John Thornhill has created you will think differently. John has created a video series showing you how you can turn an eBook you have rights to into a book in under an hour.

But the real beauty is John figured a way to sell via online bookstores such as Amazon. And John doesn’t have to lift a finger because when a book is sold they are printed and distrubuted automatically. In fact all John has to do is spend the money he earns from the book sales.

It is exciting to think that I could get my eBook printed as a physical book complete with IBAN Bar Code and open up to a whole new audience. Got some futher ideas for this method of income stream.

Do you want to dominate eBay?

Posted by: | Comments (0)

If you are new to eBay or even a seasoned seller, then I believe that anyone can dominate ebay with the spy-auction-riches Tutorial Course. Here is a little background to it:

Over 12 Months Ago Adeel Chowdry started work on what I strongly believe is the most comprehensive
video series showing you how to profit from eBay.

Imagine working on a product for over 12 months?

That’s dedication.

Adeel had created a ton of stuff related to selling information on eBay but then when eBay banned
the sale of digitally delivered products he stopped working on his product. Until now!

He has now finished his eBay Domination Course and I have to say I was impressed with the amount of content packed with 80+ videos to show you step by step how he did it.

If you want see exactly what is covered, check out his site:

This is some of what is covered:

> Making Money Selling eBooks
> Setup – ebay, mydd, aweber setup etc
> Resell Rights
> Increasing Value
> Outsourcing
> Niche Product Research
> Public Domain Riches
> Automating The Whole System
> Back-End Profits
> AdSense
> Branding
> CONFIDENTIAL <-- My fave vid ! > Affiliate Marketing
> Viral Marketing
> Buying Leads
> Software
> Private Label Rights
> Profits With Physical Products
> Real Wholesalers
> Where To Get Cheap Products From
> Increasing The Perceived Value
> Complimenting The Purchase
> Direct Marketing
> Delivery Methods

The videos and content are clear and concise and very easy to duplicate the techniques, the only grip I have is that a couple of videos are ‘dated’ due to eBay Policy changes, Adeel however addresses this.

I am glad to have purchased, just need to wait for the tuxedo to come back from dry cleaners so I can dominate eBay as 007.5 more like Basilindon Bond !!

Definately worth a look, if only to see Adeel, in his James Bond Togs, put a smile on my face…

See for yourself:

Well for some sellers it may be ….. I personally think it is still possible to sell Digital media on CD via eBay..

Let me explain, there was an interesting thread started by myself on John Thornhill’s Forum , the reason being was that I logged into my eBay account to find that all my auctions had been removed for a “Copyright Violation”.

This puzzled me as I knew that everything I had listed I had a Master Resell Licence, was Private Label Rights or I was even the author!!!, namely my PowerSellersNiches eBook .

It very quickly became evident that I was not alone, the thread now has over 110 replies and I have studied it closely and also all the replies I and others have received from eBay.

The first thing that came to light was that the “Enhanced Members Reporting” program may have been the start of the problem, this is where eBay select ‘experts’ eBay Sellers in their opinion to report auctions (I should mention that this has been predominantly on the UK Site)….

For anyone that has experienced problems with eBay, you rarely get a straight answer, ie – ‘what where the auctions that were in violation?’

You will normally be frustrated with a ‘copy & paste’ answer, resulting in your blood pressure rising …

I can only suggest you keep calm, and if it helps here are my interpretations to the mumble jumble of the ‘copy & paste’ replies.

1. My Notification to eBay VERO Members other sellers, may have gotten me into trouble, I sell lots of different sorts of digital media, here is my notice:

Special Notice to eBay Staff, Vero, Safe Harbor…I am Copyright Holder, Author or the item is in the public domain Proof is available upon request. This product does not infringe any copyrights and fully conforms with eBay compilation and international media policy. Please contact me if you have any questions or require further information.

now the grammar within the above ‘one does all’ statement for my auctions was ‘public domain’ reason as I was aware was that information that is ‘public domain’ must be over 70 years old pre 1923 or similiar to fall out of copyright. Not all my auctions were content pre 1923.

Here is the eBay Policy that was quoted to me:

Selling of Unauthorised Copies .

Was this why my auctions were ended? Maybe …

Checking some of my other auctions, I am wondering if possibly ‘open office’ caused a problem, this is a freeware GNL Licenced equivelant to Microsoft Office. Even though eBay Sellers are Licenced to sell etc, one of the replies lead me to believe that maybe it was this that caused a problem.

Here is the eBay Policy that was sent to me and others:

Selling of Replica Counterfiets .

Reading between the lines although you may have a GNL Licence to sell it, eBay deem it prohibited.

Reading through all the relevant eBay policies, it is deemed a violation if you encourage buyers to purchase outwith the eBay Marketplace. Although I did not do that I have seen others being specific about overseas customers to buy from their ‘digital media’ website as they do not dispatch CD’s Overseas. I would suggest you are careful with this one.

As I mentioned above I still believe it is possible to earn a good income from eBay, there are lots of profit making digital media sellers Profit Making digital media Sellers .

Tips to try and stay on the right side of eBay:

If using a gallery picture, you should always use a CD image, don’t use an eBook image or Book image, you are selling a CD Rom.

I always use Planet Divinity for my Graphics.

Don’t overcomplicate your ‘note to eBay Sellers’ ….. keep it simple use ‘ I am authorised to sell this item’ or something short – may save you from an Enhanced Reporting Police!

Don’t direct buyers to other websites in your auction – ‘overseas buyers go to my about me page’ etc, you can have a link to your ‘about me’ page though.

Try not to mention eBook within your auction title or description, use alternatives such as ‘guide’ etc.

Don’t sell freeware software Open Office, PDF Creator, Music Software etc as you will get suspended for selling illegal copies of software.

Always list in ‘informational products’ as listing in other catergories may get you reported.

If selling in the UK, you may wish to consider automating your CD Delivery by using Auction Acrobat or something similiar like Disc Buddy and try listing on eBay US Site.

Any comments are welcome.
