How I Made $100k+ Selling eBooks

[ THREAD ]
I’m an Architect. Which means, I knew nothing about selling online when I started.

However, I had a blog. A men’s fashion blog.

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 s 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 14k copies of the ebook I created 2 years ago.

That’s more than $100k in ebook sales.

Since then I’ve created 20+ ebooks and sold way more.
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 $1k/month

That extra $1k/month will change your life
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.

How To Print Money (Legally)

Thread ...
Believe it or not ...

Twitter is a money-printing machine.

At least for me.

I ignored Twitter for 8 years.

I thought it’s politics, ego-maniacs arguing over dumb shit.

Then one day I found Money Twitter.
I was blown away to see people making an insane amount of money on Twitter.

It was life-changing.

I decided to give Twitter a try.

I started @hustlencoqnuer in January 2019. I was excited. Hopeful.

Started dreaming about making $1000’s.

I hit a wall immediately.

I don't know who needs to hear this but depending on one income source is insanity
If you're working a 9-5
Flip things on EBay

If you're flipping on ebay
Sell ebooks

If you're selling ebooks
Sell coaching

Multiple streams of income is not always multiple businesses

One business can have multiple streams of income

for example 👇
I've ome blog

Here are my sources of income from the blog

- I sell ads
- I sell ebooks
- I sell sponsored posts
- I sell backlinks
- I sell banner ads
- I sell affiliate products

Look for opportunities. You'll find them.

Never depend on one income source.

I still remember the day I sold my first ebook.

I sold it for $2. Not much I know.

But that first sale gave me the confidence to sell more.

I've sold 1000's of ebooks since then.

Your first sale will change your life.

Don't give up.
The first ebook I sold was in a men's fashion niche.

Arguably one of the hardest.

eBook was just 13 pages. Half of the pages were images

I was terrified to put a price on that. But I did anyway

And thank god I did. It completely changed the game for me

Crush your self-doubt
Don't let your self-doubt stop you from starting.

No matter how crappy your first version is publish the damn book.

Charge $2 if you've doubts. But start.

Get to your first sale asap.

It'll change your life in ways you can't imagine.

Publish the damn book

How To Make Money Selling eBooks

[ THREAD ]
1. Pick a niche

Three most profitable niches

- Health ( Muscle building, weight loss)
- Money ( Online business, stocks investing, budgeting)
- Relationships (Dating)

Pick the one you know most about or you are interested in
2. Find a burning pain

Example,

People are living paycheck to paycheck and they need extra income to buy luxuries or pay debt

People are drowned in debt. They need a way out

Pick one burning problem.

Don't try to tackle multiple problems at once.
