I get this question often as a book coach, so I decided to let you know my 2 cents.
There’s no hard and fast rule on what length an ebook should be, but from my years as a book coach online, I know these ideas will help you decide.
Decide Which Number is Best for Your eBook’s Purpose!
#1. A 10-20 page eBook is a good length if your purpose is to use it as a bonus to web visitors when they opt-in and subscribe to your site or ezine.
We call it an “ethical bribe.” This book can also be sold as a leader on Kindle for 99 cents or $2.99, depending on its specific help to the readers. General titles don’t usually sell as well as specific ones. Within these low cost or no cost ebooks, you need to add some powerful promo that leads the reader to check out your print books and other packages and services.
#2. A 30-120 page eBook (best under 100 pages usually) can sell well.
Especially if it offers specific information your audience has to have! Then, sell it at a higher price from $15.95 to $39.95. Higher for ebook courses and other training packages.
#3. A 20-30 page eBook with a specific title and specific audience can sell well through Kindle from $2.99 to $9.99 for best commissions.
#4. Aim for your sweet spot.
It could be 70 pages or 99 pages. If your book is offered at your site in PDF you have an advantage because it’s totally downloadable and printable, and can be ordered any time. Most buyers will print up to 70 pages of a book if they want it bad enough.
Since ebook opportunities are everywhere, you can get started today with any of these choices!
My life’s mission and passion is to help unknown authors create the income they deserve, build their confidence, writing skills, and marketing tactics to get their unique, useful story out to their book’s audience who wants an outstanding life and work.
If you have a comment, please leave it. You’ll make my day!
