How many days, weeks or even months did it take you to make your eBook?
Have you spent hours working on it every day or just hiring a writer to do it for you? and it is worth to earn money online by writing the eBook?

Sorry, that's near impossible to answer. Depends on the person and how long the ebook is.

Some people put more time into it, can type faster, do more research. Too many variables to say.

I've wrote alot of stuff over the years and yes they do pay off. It's not always about money, it could be traffic, blog readers, list subscribers and so on. Maybe ways to use content.

Most people I see, it takes them months. But there are probably many reasons for that.

If you are just starting out online, I strongly suggest that you do NOT outsource your ebook.

To become successful, you want people to get to know YOU and only YOU can make that possible.
Having someone else write the ebook for you, will not convey you, your writing style or technique
and YOUR passion for the subject matter will NOT shine through.

As for the length of the ebook, or the time it takes, well, that all depends on you. I could write a
6 page ebook in 19 hours whereas you may be able to create a 312 page ebook in 6. (No, it don't
take me that long, I am just saying...)

Many factors come into play when writing ANY ebook...

  • Whether or not you are passionate about what you're writing about
  • Whether or not you actually KNOW what you're writing about
    (the less research you have to do, the less time it will take)
  • How fast you can type (or speak if using some sort of dictation software)
  • How long you want the ebook to be
  • How much content you want to provide
  • How intense you want it to be
  • How "explicit" (and informative or descriptive) you want to be
As a few have already said, no one can determine how much time and ebook SHOULD take to write.

Me personally. it took me about 3 weeks to put together my first one which is not very big. But the second one took much longer, as mentioned before it all depends on the content and what the content is about.

Some can take a very long time depending on if it envolves affiliate products, your own products, or just massive articles and no products at all.

You could probably throw a quick one together for sharing with links and cool articles in just a few days ( maybe for sharing). But if you think about putting one together for selling, you'll probably have products, links, resources such as freebies, or a tutorial about how to do something. This could take a while.

As ron said above, it's probably an impossible question to answer, so I think it just depends on other factors :)
