Hi

I plan to start a website on computers.

On my website I would like to have a page so that I can resell others Ebooks as well as my own.

It has been suggested to me by a friend of mine, that a forum would be a good place to do this.
What do you think ?

Do any of the you know, where there are a good selection of Ebooks that I can resell ? (General and computer related ones)

Thanks Craig

I don't have the answer.

You may also consider affiliate relationships with high quality books. For example, in the SEO world, Aaron Wall's SEO Book was a great book with an affiliate program that pays quite well.

Have you searched around in the search engines and at competitor sites to see what is available. Sounds like you are not in the market for free ebooks, which are quite easy to find, just search for "free ebook" and the subject.

I wonder what the profit margins will be on the books that you do find and select to offer. Can't be much. And there is so much free information available on computers.

You might do better finding a small niche and becoming the expert in that field. Start a blog and then maybe a forum. Provide some free ebooks and then eventually you can open a paid members only forum.

Food for thought.

Cheers.
