Almost 60% of marketers repurpose their content 2-5 times, and a popular way to repurpose your content is to turn it into an eBook. You can then sell your eBook on your WordPress website or self-publishing platforms, like Amazon Kindle or Barnes & Noble, and make a passive income.
And what’s great with eBooks is that they are more accessible to readers. Unlike regular books that you purchase at a bookstore or ship to your door, eBooks can be downloaded directly for reading.
What Is an eBook?
An eBook refers to any book or document that you can download and read electronically. It’s often a lot shorter than a regular book (a minimum of 10,000 words), making it easier for people to self-publish eBooks and earn a passive income.
In addition, eBooks can be read on a computer, tablet, or smartphone, which is basically what makes them eBooks.
