Once the body of your e-book is complete, add a title. And any other relevant materials at the front and end. Important things such as an introduction or bibliography, glossary, acknowledgments, and so on.
The titles are will be disclosed as you write the book. When in doubt, a title like "How to Sell Real Estate" is a good bet.
