Social Media Goals: I Want To Make $1000 With Ebook Covers

You should generally note that all of the following will typically apply, whether you want to make less than $1000, $1000 or more, with ebook covers through the social media.

An ebook cover is a product and a sub-niche under the graphic design niche, you will need to know about ebooks and the different types of ebook formats and covers that are available in the market, in order for you to be able to sell ebook covers through the social media etc; you can do this with some research.

Ebook covers are typically used with ebooks to make them (that is, the ebooks) look professional, appealing to potential users or customers and so on. Some of the different types of ebook formats that are available in the market include pdf, epub, mobi etc. You will need to create your ebook covers in some of these formats.

To make money with your ebook covers through the social media, you will need to

  • Know the niche (that is, the targets’ niche) that your ebook covers cater to
  • Know the targets that are in the niche
  • Know which of the targets in the niche your ebook covers can provide some value to
  • Determine which targets it will be potentially profitable for you to sell your ebook covers to, as a business in the targets’ niche(s) that you may be reviewing/researching on
  • Determine how potentially profitable it will be for you to sell your ebook covers to one or more targets in such a niche as a business
  • Choose a potentially profitable group of targets to sell your ebook covers to in the targets’ niche(s) that you may be reviewing/researching on
  • You will need to determine the value that you will be providing with your ebook covers to the targets in the niche(s) that you may be reviewing/researching on
  • You can also determine some uniqueness for your ebook covers too while you are reviewing/researching all these

Some of the different types of targets that you can sell your ebook covers to on the social media include businesses, non-profit organizations, government agencies etc.

What each one of these targets want/need specifically are essentially different, you will therefore need to create your content, ads and offers on and around such specific needs/wants, in order for you to profit in your ebook covers design business, through the social media.

About Products And Niches

While the steps that you may need to take, to make $1000 in net profits through the social media with different types of products/services are similar, you should however note that

  • Different niches may have different needs
  • Niches differ
  • The targets for one niche may be different from another niche’s
  • The products/services for the targets in different niches may not be the same
  • The content topics that you may need to use to promote and sell your products/services in different niches may not be the same
  • You may need different types of social media professionals/services for different niches
  • The value that you will need to provide to different niches in order to sell, may not be the same
  • What will make your product, service or business unique in different niches may also not be the same
  • The social media strategies that will provide you with the results that you want in different niches may not be the same
  • What your targets want or need in the same niche in different countries may also not be the same
  • The value that your targets want or need in the same niche in different countries may not be the same
  • The solutions that your targets want or need in the same niche in different countries may also not be the same
  • The products/services that your targets want or need in the same niche in different countries may not be the same
  • What you may need as a business in order to be unique in different countries may also differs
  • What you may need to be unique in the same niche in different countries may also not be the same too

All of the foregoing are some of the reasons why you will generally need to do some research to know what to provide with your ebook covers, that will sell for you in a niche, with some targets and in a country/location, in your business and/or through the social media.

Thus while the steps you may need to take to profit with different types of products and services may be similar or the same, the specifics for each niche, product/service, target, country and location may however not be the same. You will need to bear this in mind while you are trying to sell, or generate some sales through your ebook covers in any given niche or country in your business.

If you don’t know how to do or cannot do the research that you will need for this in your business, you may need to get some help on it from others through outsourcing.

In addition to this, to make $1000 with ebook covers through the social media, you will also need to read the following

Before You Start

Before you use the social media for the promotion or marketing of your ebook covers, you will need to have

  • Chosen a potentially profitable niche to sell to
  • Chosen the targets (potential customers) that you will be selling to in your chosen/selected niche
  • Defined the country(s) and/or location(s) of your chosen targets
  • Determined the type of ebook covers that you will be selling to your chosen targets in the niche
  • Defined the value(s) that you will be providing to your chosen targets with your ebook covers
  • Tested the demand for your ebook cover(s) before you start a business based on it
  • Defined a uniqueness for your ebook covers and/or business, that will provide your targets with a reason, to prefer your ebook covers and/or business instead of your competitors’
  • Determined how much you would want to make in net profit in your business from your chosen niche within a specific period of time, with the ebook covers that you may have chosen to sell
  • Determined the number of customers/targets that you will need, in order for you to make as much as you want in terms of profits, in your business, within the specific period you may have defined

Doing these should help you to

  • Determine what to sell, who to sell to, and how you will sell your ebook covers (that is, either locally, nationally or globally).
  • Determine the type of ebook covers that you can sell, that your targets (potential customers) will want and buy through the social media
  • Determine the type of content, offers and ads, that you will need to create or ask others to create for your business, that you can use to promote or market your ebook covers, and/or business effectively through the social media, in order for you to make the sale
  • Determine who, that is, the targets to look for on the social media that are likely to buy your ebook covers
  • Find targeted followers for your business on the social media, that fit your targets’ profile
  • Determine how much you will want to make in net profit through the social media, in your business, within a specific period of time (this will be your social media profit goal)

You can do each of the above (that is, choose a potentially profitable niche to sell to etc) with some research, for your business by yourself, and with the help of your employees and/or third parties (through outsourcing). You will need to determine each one of these for your business, if you wish to succeed with it, and with your use of the social media for the promotion/marketing of your ebook covers.

You will need to do these whether you are a small, medium-size or big business, or whether your business is local, global or international.

If you have not determined these for your business yet, you can do so now with the help of The Profit Blueprint. You can generally apply and implement the profit steps and solutions as outlined in The Profit Blueprint on your business, in order for you to profit and succeed with it. You can click here now to get The Profit Blueprint.

Once you have determined all of the above for your business, you can then use the social media for profit.

If you have already established a social media presence for your business, you will need to do the above too if you have not done them yet, if you wish to succeed with your business and your social media marketing.

Some Of The Different Ways You May Choose To Sell

Some of the different ways you may choose to sell ebook covers in your business include

  • Selling a single ebook cover
  • Selling multiple ebook covers
  • Selling in one or more niches
  • Selling to one or more targets
  • Selling in one or more countries

You will need to do some comparison to determine and know, the combination of some of these, that are likely to be more potentially profitable for your business than others, within a specific period of time, you can learn more about this in The Profit Blueprint.

Determining this may help you to know the optimal and best combination of these, that is likely to make you $1000 in net profit potentially, within a specific period of time in your business, and through the social media.

You may make more money/profits with your ebook covers in some countries than others. You may therefore want to do some comparison and some research on this, before you start too.

To Make $1000 In Net Profit With Ebook Covers In Your Business Through The Social Media

1). You will need to set $1000 as your social media profit goal

2). You will also need to set or define a specific period of time in which you would want to make your $1000 in net profit from the social media

3). Your business must be potentially profitable enough to make you $1000 in net profit within the specific period of time that you may have defined or set for it.

With some research, you should be able to determine if your chosen ebook covers design business is potentially profitable enough to make you $1000 in net profit, within the specific period of time, that you may have set or defined for it.

You should ideally have determined if your ebook covers design business can potentially make some specific amount in profit before you start it, and before you start using the social media for the promotion and marketing of your ebook covers as noted earlier. Once you’ve done this, you should then be able to determine if your ebook covers design business can make $1000 in net profit within some specific period of time too.

For instance, if you have been able to determine that your ebook covers design business can potentially make you $15,000 in net profit within a year, you should then be able to determine too, if it can also potentially make you say $1000 in net profit within a month, 2 months, 3 months etc.

If you have not done this yet for your ebook covers design business, you will need to do this, before doing any other thing with your social media marketing, if you wish to succeed with it, and if you wish to achieve your goal of making $1000 in net profit through the social media, within the specific period you may have defined or set for your ebook covers design business.

4). You will also need to have done some research, to determine that you can get to as many as, the number of targets that you will need, to potentially make $1000 in net profit through the social media

For instance, if you need 200 people/targets to buy from you, in order for you to make $1000 in net profit potentially through the social media, within the specific period of time that you may have defined or set for your ebook covers design business, you should ideally calculate the number of people/targets that you may need to get to, by using a conversion rate of about say 1%. That is, you can assume that for every 100 people/targets that you will get to on the social media, 1 person will buy from or through you.

Thus, you will therefore then need to get to about 20,000 people/targets, in order for you to potentially make $1000 in net profit through the social media in your ebook covers design business. Once you have such numbers/figures to work with, you can then do some research to determine if you can get to at least 20,000 people/targets in your chosen niche, on the social media.

You can use any conversion rate for this, the 1% that is being used here, is just for demo purposes.

The price per unit of your chosen type of ebook cover, and how many times your targets can buy it, and the cost of selling an ebook cover, will determine how many units of your ebook covers you will need to sell, and the number of targets you may need to sell to, in order to make as much as you want in profits, within some specified period of time with your ebook covers.

The higher the price of each one of your ebook covers, and the higher the number of times each one of your targets will or may need your ebook covers, the fewer the number of targets that you will need to buy, in order for you to make specific amount of revenue/profits with your ebook covers.

5). You will need to determine the potential cost of making $1000 in net profit from the social media in your business

To make $1000 in net profit with your ebook covers through the social media, you will need to create a social media strategy and plan that can help you to potentially make as much as $1000 in net profit, within the specific period of time you may have set/defined, and will also need to determine the potential cost of creating, managing and implementing such a strategy and plan too.

By determining the potential cost of creating, managing and implementing your social media strategy and plan, you can

  • Get some idea of how much it may potentially cost you to make as much as your chosen $X amount of money (which in this case is $1000), within the period of time that you may have specified
  • Determine if you can afford to do it
  • Determine if you may have to start small (that is, if you cannot afford to do or provide what you may potentially need, to make as much as you want in your ebook covers design business, within your stated/specified period of time)
  • Determine what you can start and sustain in your ebook covers design business on the social media within a specific period of time
  • Determine what is likely to give you some results or the type of results that you want
  • Avoid wasting your time and money
  • Determine what you will need to make the social media work for your ebook covers design business specifically

You can with some research and by using some projected or estimated figures/numbers, create a social media strategy and plan that can help you, to potentially make as much as you want in your ebook covers design business. You can do this by yourself and/or with the help of your employees or with the help of third parties through outsourcing.

Your potential costs will depend on

  • Whether you will be doing your social media marketing
    • For free, at a low cost or at a premium
    • By yourself, with the help of your employees, and/or third parties (through outsourcing etc)
  • The type of strategy you will be using
  • The amount/level of skills (people and services), time, money, expert help, training, resources, promotions and tools that you will need, in order for you to be able to potentially achieve your social media profit goal

You can compare how much it will potentially cost you to use different combination of options, to potentially make or generate $1000 in net profit, through the social media in your ebook covers design business, and then choose the best option that will work for you.

To generate any amount of sales through the social media in your ebook covers design business, will require some level of skill and some time, money, resources, tools and promotions from you, it may also require that you should get some expert help and/or training too, in order for you to be able to achieve your sales/profits goal.

You will need to know how much you will need in terms of skills, money, resources, expert help, training or tools in order for you to be able to make $1000 in net profit potentially in your ebook covers design business, with the strategy and plan that you may have defined to achieve this.

You will generally need to provide your business with what it needs, in terms of skills, time, money, expert help, training, resources, promotions and tools, in order for you to be able to make your expected or specified $X amount of sales/profits, through the social media.

You can see some examples of some potential costs for creating and implementing social media strategies/plans at Social Media Marketing Costs: Doing It For Free, At A Low Cost Or At A Premium.

6). You will need to set a budget

You will need to set a budget for your social media marketing, based on what you can afford for the specific period of time, you may have set to profit through the social media.

7). You may need to redefine your social media strategy and plan

After you may have done your researches, if you discover that you cannot afford the potential cost for the skills, time, money, expert help, training, resources, promotions and tools, that you will need to potentially achieve the social media profit goal, that you may have set for your ebook covers design business, you may choose to start small with what you can afford, and then build on that over time. This may mean you may have to change (that is, reduce/lower) your profit goal.

That is, if for example, you have set a profit goal to make $1000 in net profit, from the social media in your ebook covers design business within 6 months, and after doing your researches, you discovered that you cannot afford the potential cost of providing your business with the skills, time, money, expert help, training, resources, promotions and tools, that it would need to achieve that goal, you can then do some recalculation of your projections/estimates, to determine how much you can potentially make in profits with what you can afford.

If from your recalculations, you were able to determine that you can only make for example say, about $500 in net profit potentially (using some estimates), with what you can afford, you will therefore then need to change your original goal of making $1000 in net profit to $500.

Doing this will help you to redefine and fit your social media strategy and plan to what you can actually afford in your ebook covers design business.

8). You will need to execute your social media strategy and plan

Once you’ve created and planned the specific social media strategy, that you can use to potentially make $1000 or some specific $X amount of sales/profits in your ebook covers design business, through the social media, the next step for you will then be to implement and execute your plan. You will generally need to measure and track the results that you will get from this.

9). You will need to track and optimize your results

You will need to set up an ad tracking system to track your sales, traffic, leads etc from the social media, and will also need to use the data/information from your tracked result reports, to consistently promote your product/service on the social media.

If you already have a social media presence and you don’t have such an ad tracking system in place yet, you will have to set it up.

You will need to consistently base your promotions on your tracked results, after any initial promotional results that you may have, in order for you to be able to achieve your goal of making your $1000 in net profit with your ebook covers design business through the social media.

For instance, if you made say about $200 in net profit in your first month through the social media, you will need to track and determine which social media sites, content, content types etc, made you as much as this.

You will need to track this in order for you to know the content, ads and offers that you should continue to use, that is likely to make you more money, and those that you should drop or stop using. Tracking in this manner will let you know what to use, and where to effectively use and promote on/with next on the social media.

You will generally need to track and promote consistently in this manner, in order for you to be able to achieve your social media goal, of making $1000 in net profit with your ebook covers design business. That is, using the $200 example above, you will need to track and promote based on your tracked results consistently in order to generate $300, $400, $500 etc, in your business until you have made up to the $1000 in net profit, that you want.

You can preview a general example of the type of report, that you should have in your ebook covers design business from your ad tracking system at Social Media Tracking: Are You Making Money? You may click on the link to view the sample report.

Note

  • If you don’t think you can do all of the foregoing on your own, you should ideally get some help.
  • Having some experience with selling a product/service, and generating some sales through the social media, will go a long way in helping you with this. However, even if you don’t have any previous experience with that, you can still implement all of the foregoing in your ebook covers design business in order to profit.
  • You may want to work together with a social media marketing expert with this, or you may choose to hire a social media marketing professional as your employee (in order for you to be able to achieve your profit goal, of making $1000 in net profit in your ebook covers design business, and in order for you to also be able to make more money, through the social media).

You would therefore want to ensure that you provide your ebook covers design business with what it needs, in order for you to be able to achieve your profit goal.
  • If you want, you may also choose to do your researches and create/plan your social media strategy by yourself and/or with the help of your employees, and then get a social media management expert/service to review your strategy and plan for you.

  • You may also choose to only use a social media management expert and/or service when you need it.
  • You may also get someone else (that is, a social media expert/professional) to review everything you may have done so far too, with your social media marketing.

  • You may be able to make as much as you want through the social media by yourself, with the help of your employees and/or with the help of a social media expert(s) or service(s).
  • Your social media content, ads and offers will need to reach or get to enough number of targets (that is, enough target audience), for them to be able to get you some result.
