7 Little Known Secrets For Making Money and Saving the World on SCRIBDBy Jed Diamond, Ph.D.Contact Information:Scribd:http://www.scribd.com/JedDiamondPhDWeb:www.Menalive.comE-Mail: Jed@MenAlive.comWhen a friend first told me about “Scribd” I didn’t quite get it. Although I use theinternet, mostly for research, reading, and e-mail, I’m not very savvy about networkingand “new technologies.” But when he told me you could easily upload just aboutanything—books, e-books, articles, research studies—to Scribd and sell them in theScribd store, he got my attention.
 
I’m a writer, researcher, and psychotherapist and have been helping men and thewomen who love them for more than 40 years. I am founder of www.MenAlive.com,where I share information about male menopause, irritable male syndrome, male-typedepression, and how to have successful relationships of all kinds. I’ve written 8 booksincluding international best-sellers
Male Menopause
and
The Irritable Male Syndrome.
 Making money as a writer isn’t easy. Every time I write a book, I’m sure that it willsell a million copies. But the odds are against me. According to industry statistics therewere 1.25 million books published last year. Of that number 850,000 sold fewer than 99copies for the year. Only 1.2% of the total new titles sold over 1 million copies (Think Stephen King, Dean Koontz, John Grisham).I do sell more than 99 copies a year and you can find me in most bookstores includingAmazon. But when I sell something on Amazon, I may make 8% of the $20 cover price.And I have to give 15% of that to my agent. And I have to wait 6 months until I get mynext royalty check. But, listen to this.
Selling on Scribd, I make 80% of everything Isell and I get paid immediately.
You can’t believe how excited I was when I got my first e-mail from Scribd tellingme that someone had purchased one of my e-booklets. I had uploaded it, just a few hours previously.The e-mail said, “Your document
has been purchased for $1.99. The total earnings to date for this document is
$1.34.
 
 Now $1.34 may not seem like much, but it was my first sale andI was proud. Selling something you’ve written, hours after you’ve written it, is like
 
nothing else I’ve ever experienced. I’ve gotten many more notices like this one and eachone is a source of excitement and joy.But wait, there’s more. Not only do I get quick cash from selling e-books and articlesin the Scribd store, but I also get a chance to try out new ideas and see what people findmost interesting. I wrote a two page summary of some research I was doing onrelationship addictions. I titled it:
 Is It Love or Love Addiction?
Within a week after  posting, it has been read by over 1,000 people. My power point summary of a study Iconducted on depression,
Male vs. Female Depression: Why Men Act Out and Women Act In
has gotten 642 reads in the last week.Within two months after I joined I have developed a following of more than 2,000 people. Each time I post a new article or make a comment, they receive my post. It’s agreat way to reach people who want to know more about the things I’m writing about.It’s also a great way for me to learn about other people’s work that relates to my own.Here are the 7 Steps I followed. I’m still learning as I go, but wanted you to have the benefit of my experiences so far.1.
Learn about Scribd.
Like learning most things, I started with a Google search. The first link I checkedwashttp://www.scribd.com/about where I got a quick summary from the Scribd site. Scribd (It rhymes with "ad
libbed 
.") began with a simple observation — that thedesire for self-expression through the written word is as old as humanity itself. But evenwith the proliferation of blogs and other self-publishing tools, there was no easy way for average people to publish to a readership of millions. Scribd founders Jared Friedmanand Trip Adler felt that everyone should be able to share what they know.

Hi Jed! Thanks for this well-written article. My books are published on Amazon, LULU, and Smashwords and I've been dragging my feet on adding them here. Reading your article today has inspired me to get the project started or possibly finished today. Thanks again! Jo Ana
