Many online home businesses are created by the sale of a simple e-book. The popularity of the e-book has increased in the "I want it now" society that is in love with the idea of getting their desired information immediately. Not have to wait for something to be shipped to you is quickly becoming the desire method for most internet information shoppers. Internet marketers are using e-books in many ways from building lists to making money. Giving away information in exchange for personal information is hot! And so is selling e-books. Savvy marketers are using these e-books as a front end product to up-sell clients on their primary business, as well as creating their own online bookstore, open 7 days a week 24 hours a day! But e-books are not just for the internet marketers; bookstore giants like Amazon have also embraced the e-book generation with their patented Kindle book reader.
Sony has also jumped on the band wagon with their Sony Reader. The company is making millions from customers downloading e-books for use with their reader. This technology has been around for years, it is just now taking hold as the technology has gotten better and people have become more ecologically conscious. This is however a bit more upscale for the average internet entrepreneur. Creating an e-book with Adobe is still cost effective and acceptable for a free or low cost offer. You can then turn your e-book into an audio and "Viola" you now have a product worth much more for your home business.
However, the real popularity and reason every home business owner should consider marketing some form of e-book is their instantaneous access. Lets say a business opportunity seeker is searching for information, anytime day or night, and they land on your website, you have the opportunity to provide them that information immediately, increasing your odds of getting a keeping them for life. And if you own your own online bookstore you have even more opportunity to up sell or cross sell. Instant access is not the only reason people are taking advantage of e-books. Unlike your hardback book, e-books allow you to enlarge the font if necessary, perform searches on keywords or phrases and easily bookmark your location with having the bookmark fall out.
Lower cost is another advantage to e-books. Since there is virtually no overhead Amazon and home business entrepreneurs can make far more profit. Anyone can create an e-book even if you don't consider yourself a writer. Ghost writers and e-book creators are easily found at Elance and Craigslist.
If you're looking for a way to start a business on a shoe string budget, try an e-book.
