Ebook Answers #5 – How to Price Your Ebook

If you don’t have a blog yet for your online business, you should install one. They’re pretty easy to install, and you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to run one.

And, as a side benefit, if you get in the practice of writing in it frequently, it will make writing your ebook a LOT easier. In fact, some people just scoop up all of their blog posts and publish them all together as an ebook.

You gotta love THAT idea!

But one of the reason I love blogs is that I get to find out what YOU are thinking. We’ve been talking about ebooks a lot recently, and I received a comment to one of my posts today that is indicative of several others I’ve seen — as well as many emails I’ve received.

I believe its value is there…<snip>
I have swept up and down in my evaluation of how much to charge. When I can save people sometimes thousands of dollars, and also add concepts of value and appreciation to the wedding day, what can I charge for this product? I have gone around with this, ending up trying from $29.95 to 55.95. I have to come to terms with this. The Inernet is so strange a marketplace, I just want to the book to sell. A small piece of a wide river is better than a big piece of a trickling brook.
I would love to hear anything that you might suggest.
Thanks, Rev. Roland Takaoka

This question plagues a LOT of new authors, but I’d like to set your mind at ease about it. And that won’t be hard to do, because
