Ebook Marketing

Ebook marketing and self publishing ebooks can generate significant income when you learn how to make an ebook or by choosing a popular Clickbank ebook to sell on your site.

Writing and selling ebooks can be a very lucrative strategy in generating website income.

The only investment you need to make is a chunk of your time and in return you receive a 100% per sale profit margin.

An ebook is identical to a hard copy or paperback book except it is distributed in an electronic format.  

The eBook marketing part is a matter of promoting your ebook and offering it for sale or as a free download on your website.

If you are like most people, you are probably rolling your eyes and thinking that you couldn't possible write, publish and sell your own book, right?

Well, you might have to trust me on this one, but quite honestly learning how to make an ebook isn't nearly as difficult as you might think.

After all, it's not like you have to be a writer like Shakespeare or Mark Twain to start self publishing ebooks.

Start with an outline of all the steps involved in reaching an end result. Use each step as a chapter by clearly providing the specifics instructions involved that leads to achieving the desired outcome.

Then of course, there are literally a gazillion other types of ebooks including recipe books, inspirational quotes, advice, ecourses and eguides that have become quite popular and aren't that hard to write either.

Use your imagination!

Here's a quick step-by-step how to make an ebook and ebook marketing "How To" guide:

  1. Write a riveting, informative and helpful ebook
    or other downloadable product.

    I'll leave this step entirely up to you. . .

    Or if you need some inspiration this is an excellent resource that will help you get your ebook rock'in and roll'in along: Write and Publish an eBook in 7 Days

  2. Convert your ebook into a digital format:
    Since .PDF files are readily recognized by people all over the world, it is a preferred digital format. It also happens to be one of the easiest and most convenient ways to create an electronic version of your ebook. Open Office offers free conversion software or try the free version of the PDF995 software.

    (Note: The free version of the later option has an annoying number of pop-up ads but if you are only going to use it on occasion, it's manageable.)

    Once you download the free software, you simply use the "print to PDF" option to convert your word document into a PDF file which can be protected for digital distribution.

    If you don't mind investing a few dollars then you can purchase an ebook compiling software package that has all the bells and whistles like Ebook Compiler. (You can test drive the free version first!)

  3. Create an ebook cover:
    Customers need to have a visual, tangible representation of what they are thinking about purchasing. You can either design and make your own cover purchase an ebook cover design service.

    Since I don't happen to have any artistic ability what-so-ever, I personally use Killer Covers.  They are very reasonably priced, the designs are amazingly professional and they are great to work with. They have a money back guarantee, if you are not happy with the cover they design for your project.

    (Tip: If you are a SBI website owner, Killer Covers gives you a discount too!)

  4. Ebook Marketing:
    Direct your visitors to the via a link on your website and/or create a web page (sales page) that discusses the uniques benefits of the ebook you created or a ClickBank eBook that you have chosen as particularly beneficial for your visitors.

    Create a sales page on your website to showcase and market your ebook. To write a sales page that will actually generate sales then the free ebook "How to Make Your Words Sell" is a must read!

  5. List your electronic product for sale:
    Sign-up to be a vendor in a digital marketplace (Think of a gigantic online shopping mall that specializes in eproducts).

    In addition to giving your eproduct lots of exposure, most online digital marketplace distributors also offer programs that provide you the opportunity to recruit and build your own sales force of affiliates who want to promote and sell your eproduct for you.

The 3 most popular and reputable eproduct marketplace sites are:

Important Note
I have eproducts listed in all three marketplaces.
It is very important to spend the time to carefully read the terms of use for each site since they differ significantly from each other!
