How Much Should an eBook Cost?

Patti asked on Twitter what I think a fair price is for an eBook. A fair price is the price that someone is willing to pay – for anything. This includes eBooks. I’ve sold eBooks in the past for as low as ninety-nine cents, and as high as forty-nine dollars. People have bought them, no matter which price range they fell in. If the information is worth something, then the value of it is higher. You have to decide if a given eBook holds value for YOU when deciding if it is set at a price you are willing to pay.

I don’t think there’s a “right” price. You can do a variety of tests with pricing to see what works well. I’ve been very happy as an electronic publisher over the years. Giving valuable information is what it’s all about. If you feel the things you have written will help someone in some way, then price it accordingly.

If you think you’re going to make it in this universe by thinking you’ll get everything for free – get a life. That’s not going to happen. Everything comes with a price, including knowledge at times.
