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.
