So, what’s the big push lately about gurus coming out and talking about creating ebooks to sell online.
Well, Matthew Rush has been doing it for a while now and says he’s been making decent money with, that is if you call $30,000 per month decent.
That’s definitely money you can live on, but let’s get back to the ebook writing deal, I’m not really a big fan.
Matt says that you don’t have to worry about that, you can get somebody else to write it for you.
Well what about working with Amazon?
He says that it’s not nearly as risky as FBA.

Matthew says he has a pretty good track record to follow with resume’ highlights like writing over 1,000 ebooks, launching more than 1,500 ebooks total, and student success stories who some say are making over $50,000 per month.
Yeah, Matt, why don’t you just go pick up Mjollnir and sling it over your shoulder like Captain America.
Matthew also goes on to talk about some of the great things about publishing ebooks, like:
- No inventory taking up space in your garage or basement
- No crazy expenses
- No competition
OK, Matt, I’m following you on the whole ‘no inventory and expenses’ issue, but have you been to Amazon lately, they have ebooks flying off their digital shelves.
Well, that may be the case, but he’s got an arsenal of reviews like:
- Tweens making $2,000 per month from fiction stories
- Dudes using ChatGPT to write ebooks telling other people how to make money online
- People writing about how to deal with the loss of loved ones.
See, competition isn’t really an issue if you niche down far enough, because you can always find someone that can relate to what you’re writing.
But ebooks, really?
Yeah, I hear you, Matt says, but look – all these people have one thing in common. They tried Amazon FBA, Affiliate Marketing, SMMA and none of them panned out. And honestly, writing an ebook (or hiring a ghostwriter) is much easier than finding backlinks or creating a Google Business Profile.
But, Matt’s not blaming you for throwing in the towel with those other business models, there’s so many moving pieces in all those other programs, it’s a wonder anyone makes more than a few thousand dollars per month for all the time they have to put into it.
Milli Vanilli used to sing a song back in the day called “Blame It On The Rain”. Well, Matt says you can blame it all on:
- Complex Frameworks
- Competitive Markets
- No Investment Capital
Writing is as old as time, and just about anyone can do it. From the 8 year old daydreamer to the 80 year old dreaming about being 8 again.
So, how do you do this?
You can start this using your real name or a different one. The choices are wide open, which is how Stephen King does it with some of his novels – ever heard of Richard Bachman?
The first step is finding the perfect topic. Look for something people really like but not many books are written about. That’s your sweet spot for a bestseller.
Next, plan a series of four books around a topic that people love and bundle them together. How? Check out the reviews of popular books in your chosen topic.
What do readers enjoy?
What do they wish was included?
Use these insights as your guide. Make sure each book is quick and fun to read. And, add exciting endings to make readers want to read the next book.
The third step is getting good reviews and sales. Matthew has a group of writers who help each other by leaving positive reviews. Yeah, it feels a bit sneaky, like meeting secretly in a parking lot.
Matthew shares a story to help understand this better. It’s about a guy named Frank who’s stuck in a flood. He’s waiting for God to reach down and save him.
A boat and then a helicopter come to rescue him, but he refuses, saying God will save him, but then he drowns. In heaven, he asks God why He didn’t save him. God says, “I sent you a boat and a helicopter. What more did you want?”
Matthew’s like the boat in this story, offering help through his Empire Author program.
