We should state here that the we are talking about eBooks. But then why not. Think of the advantages. Almost zero cost to set up. Electronic downloads mean you don't have to pay for printed copies, or send out physical goods.

When you sign up with Clickbank, you open up your product to the world of affiliate marketing. Here, other people try to sell your work for you. You in return provide them with a percentage of the sale price (all done automatically by Clickbank). eBooks are information products – and this is perhaps one of the hottest selling products on the internet today. People want information. If you want ot publish your own book, and eBook is perhaps the best way to start. Once it becomes established, you can always approach publishers.
