Most home business opportunities are overdone and oversaturated. With most home-based business opportunities that are promoted in magazines and websites the options are all the same; start a daycare center, become a personal shopper, a site at home and stuff envelopes, and so on. While a dedicated person can make income, and sometimes great incomes, from such ideas, the market can only handle so many works at home personal shoppers. E-books however are in a market that is only just starting to see the entrepreneurial interest. E-book authors are starting to be called info entrepreneurs. They compile high-quality information or write their own fiction e-books and sell them online. Some people are able to secure very comfortable full-time careers from this, and yes, they do it 100% from their own home.
Being an e-book entrepreneur is no easy feat. It will require long hours of research and writing, web design, and gaining a little knowledge about e-commerce. However, the payoff could be huge. And unlike many other home-based businesses you won’t be limited to your region. The beauty of e-books is that you can publish them and then distribute them throughout the world. You could get orders from Indonesia, Canada, the USA, France, and so on. This global opportunity doesn’t apply to many other works at home opportunities.
E-book Stores Don’t Open & Close
Another defining feature of E-book Entrepreneurs is that they don’t have the regular 9-5 hours of operation. You will sell e-books while you’re awake and while you sleep. Not bad huh? Most of the work that goes along with setting up an E-book business is done in the beginning stages. This industry is front heavy, but after you set up your infrastructure you can continue to sell with very little daily maintenance.
Not Just For Authors
Likewise, e-book authorship is not just for authors. Anyone who has an interest in anything could write about their interest and convert it into an e-book. Some of the best e-books are actually from unknown authors and some highest-selling e-books have been written by unknown authors who have a knack for online promotion.
If nothing else, E-book publishing is something worth considering. E-books may not replace traditional paperback books, but they certainly are gaining popularity at a rate that should make all authors stop to think about how they could use e-books to their advantage.
