Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday, hope all is well with everyone. I have a question. I have been doing some research on selling and eBook from your website vs selling it on amazon and have heard different opinions.

There seem to be advantages and disadvantages from both sides. Just need your help as I dig deeper to see which way is the best whether your website or amazon. Thanks so much for your help!!!

You asked a specific question and you have some really good answers. What I am say are only suggestions that you may have already implemented or thought of but it also may help.

I use ebooks to drive traffic to my website. But they are small ebooks and I don't know what yours is. I give them away to generate email leads that can increase traffic and down the road lead to a sale. In the long run a free give away for an email address is more profitable than the money I could make from an ebook.

Or I use it as an upsell in an ad.

Like I say all just thoughts.

In my personal experience, I choose selling from my website because It is working for me. You can keep all the revenues compared to Amazon.
Just my opinion.

Hello brain thanks so much for your help, but another question if that is alright with you. One of the things that I have been hearing is that if you seek to sell your eBook from your website that there is a process you have to put in place because if persons try to download your eBook in a pdf form they may have problems. What is you take on this. Thanks again for your help!!

I didn't have a problem with that either. Here's the process. I will write an article that is related to my book. Then I will recommend my book. I put an image of my book that is clickable. When someone's click they will be transferred to my sales page. When they click buy now they will go to PayPal. That's how I do it.

How much traffic do you have on your website?

If the answer is "not much". Leverage Amazon.

If the answer is "truckloads of traffic"... Selling on your website will enable you to keep a larger chunk of the profits.
