FITNESS PROS & ONLINE MARKETERS: Get a high-quality custom ebook w/ full resale rights & limited competition

I knack for writing really high-quality fitness e-books. Not the kind you can get written for a few hundred dollars from someone on eLance or one of those that you can get off resale sites for $50. My e-books are really detailed, accurate and informative e-books complete with photos, detailed exercise descriptions and layout. Good examples are Sure Victory and Secrets of a Turbocharged Metabolism.

The problem is that I find most fitness pros and many marketers don't have the resources to hire me to write an e-book of this quality even though they'd very much like to. The last time I wrote one of these ebooks I was paid over $3,500 and it was only 50 pages.

If you don't have a sure-fire online sales system set up to sell an ebook, that kind of price tag can be a big gamble. Yet fitness e-books sell great online and are a good way for fitness pros to get their business online. If you already sell info products online, then you're probably always on the lookout for another good product to bring in more profits--and, of course, the less you pay for that product the better your profits are.

So I started thinking; what if wrote one ebook and offered the resell rights to 10 people and customized the e-book for each person so they each had a unique product. By splitting the cost up, it would be more affordable for each person and yet they get an e-book of the highest quality that they can sell unlimited quantities of without paying royalties or anything like that. And by limiting the number of people who can buy it, the competition is limited so the market is wide open.

Now I don't have a lot of details right now, because I'm just trying to get a feel for how many people would be interested, but here's what I'm thinking so far:
  • 75-100 page e-book with detailed exercise descriptions, excellent photos (use yours or mine), routines, nutrition information, meal plans
  • Focused on weight loss and metabolism, which is a highly popular subject, and including heart health information. Depending on feedback, we could also go with muscle building or all-around fitness
  • Each person would get a unique title and cover and customized inside pages that could include their own photo and business name (for fitness pros who want to brand themselves).
  • Each person gets rights to resell as many copies as they want and even print it in hardcopy if they want to and sell it on Amazon or wherever.
  • Includes sales letters, lead-generator report and follow-up emails, possibly some Adword ads
  • Maximum of 10 people involved to limit competition and cross-over
  • I'm thinking the price range would be around $800 to include everything and the customization.
I'm open to other suggestions as well.

Like I said, I'm just looking to see who is interested and get some feedback so I can offer a product that you all really want. If you even THINK you might be interested, send me an email at and let me know what you'd like to see in such an ebook.

If I get enough people interested I'll put together a complete outline and complete package details based on feedback I get. Then you can decide for sure whether you want to participate. THERE'S NO OBLIGATION TO YOU RIGHT NOW . . . just email me and let me know if you're even remotely interested. I don't want to plan this whole thing out if nobody is interested.

Again, if you're interested, email me at
