    Ebook Marketing - Is it dead?

    Do you think ebook marketing is now a dead method as more and more people prefer to buy software, coaching programs and video training materials?

    Once in a while, someone comes up with a real blockbuster concept that sells real well, but in most cases, ebooks are now looked down as nothing but rehashed material.

    Ebooks are still effective if given away for opt-ins and/or bundled as bonus products on a sales page, but selling them is becoming a marketers nightmare.

    What does this mean for a newbie online marketer, where ebooks tend to be least expensive item to produce and sell? Please discuss.

    I rarely spend on eBooks. Most of the eBooks just go over the same crap again and again and again.

    Courses are also mainly for newbies.

    Now what I have realized is don't waste your time on all this crap...just go ahead and do it!

    I don't buy ebooks, courses, software, programs, etc. You can find free information out there to learn like all of these "gurus" did.

    They're dead to most people that are slightly experienced but newbies still like them as if its well written they get a solid guide to follow.

    That said, more experienced marketers tend to prefer video courses, membership sites or private coaching. There will always be buyers for high quality content like that.
