My Thoughts on E-junkie

I was going to wait until the new year to really test out E-junkie, but decided to give it a go today while working on my new business site (so I won't have to manually distribute my first e-book anymore).

The setup was pretty simple, quick, and painless, and on testing, the delivery is working wonderfully.

The big question was whether I should use E-junkie or Clickbank. With E-junkie having a cleaner feel, less of a bad reputation for junk products (from what I've seen), and the ability to process payments through Clickbank anyway, it seemed like the natural one to go with. And of course the lack of fees on each transaction was an added incentive, even if there's a low monthly cost.

I haven't tried out their affiliate program side of things yet, because I don't plan to release my current e-book with an affiliate program. My newer ones coming out will be the first to implement that.

Overall, with as quick as it all was, I'm feeling a bit inspired to create shorter reports in addition to my main e-book products now that delivery is out of my hands. I'd say it's definitely worth giving a shot, and I'm glad I stumbled across it.

8 thoughts on “My Thoughts on E-junkie”

  1. I’m a little weary of using e-junkie only because there’s a monthly fee and I’m worried it may not pay off for me. I wonder if maybe e-junkie is good for writers like you, who have a following (thanks to your newsletter, your websites, your blogs) and so have more chances of selling at least a copy a month. For many writers, that may not hold true, so using a system where you pay a percentage only if you sell may work out better.

  2. That’s what that three month free trial I mentioned in a previous post is good for though – you actually pay less than using Clickbank, and in general one sale would more than make up for the fee. I’d be really surprised if no sales at all were made during that long of a free trial (so if you want to give it a go, sign up for that before it’s too late – I don’t know how long it lasts). Even if you don’t end up using it, it gives you an option, and you can cancel later.

  3. I’m about done with this new version of the ebook and am looking for another place to sell besides just LULU — you advise I use this?

  4. Ok, I just registered. I want to try e-junkie to sell the e-book I’ll work on during January. It would be sort of a trial, just to see what works and what doesn’t. I do want to take on affiliate sales too, so I need to work on the details.

  5. I think I’m going to use it to sell the e-book I’m republishing (as well as putting it on Lulu). Have to read up on it, finishing it up and sending it to the printer ASAP. I’m going to try affiliates too — if you find any good articles or sources, email them to me please D. 🙂

  6. You mean ideas on how to use affiliate sources? Clickbank first, of course. For ideas on how to promote affiliate opportunities, you can take a look at this: – There’s a great tutorial there on affiliate marketing, including how it works, how to promote your items, etc.

  7. I am a big fan of e-junkie for selling digital products, although I mainly sell downloadable audio and not ebooks.

    I also push people to my various products through websites, blogs and article marketing, so I am not too worried about sales. As long as I can convert .05% of my traffic or so, the system makes a profit for me.

    The main challenge – Can you create compelling ad-copy? Can you give a wonderful description of your book that makes it compelling for them to buy it? And do you have some type of guarantee, so that they can “return it” if they want?

    cheers – Ryan

  8. I think this goes back to my original comment: e-junkie and other places are great if you know how to market yourself and your products, if you already have a following or if you can create compelling copy to attract prospective buyers. I agree that the main challenge is the ad-copy and the promotion.
