Making Money Online with Lulu

Support independent publishing: buy this book on Lulu.Over the last few months, I started receiving payments from Apparently, the products I put there ages ago started to sell. Not sure why or how, as I haven’t really touched Lulu for years. At least, nothing major. In fact, the two products I have there (a beginners’ ebook on creative writing and a couple of fiction writing worksheets) haven’t been updated in a long, long time.

Anyway, I was quite impressed with the recent updates to Lulu (recent, since I last checked anyway), such as:

1) Customisable storefronts. Really good to see this in place.

2) Ability to sell other products other than books or ebooks like artwork, CDs/DVDs, digital media (audio, video, software), calendars, etc.

3) New information and help for content providers.

So, yeah, if you’re looking in to selling content like print-on-demand books, ebooks, software applications, etc., then Lulu might be something worth looking in to. It’s all pretty straightforward: sign up for an account, set up a page for your product, upload and input information, set your price, then promote, promote, promote. Lulu even has several marketing and selling tools for product sellers.

It’s free to set up an account and storefront. Lulu simply gets a cut off your retail price.

You can receive payment via Paypal and set your own payment threshold. For more information, visit Lulu’s Help Page.
