Now is the perfect time to write an ebook. If you’ve not written one yet, you’re probably thinking about it. And if you’re not, you should be.
Ebooks are a new and powerful tool for original thinkers with fresh ideas to disseminate information to the millions of people who are struggling to figure out how to do a plethora of different things.
However, if you have a business, these days, you’ve probably got a website. And if you’ve got a website, you want quality, targeted traffic. An ebook is one of the most powerful ways to promote your business by educating people about your product. The result? Eager visitors to your site, people who already know about your product and are interested to know more. In short, people who are already pre-disposed to buy.
And ebooks will promote any types of business.
- Bonsai enthusiasts
- Bridal favors
- Building supplies
- any other type of business (whether or not it begins with B!)
Once written, give your ebooks away free. Visit related forums and say that you have just completed a new ebook on (xyz) and are willing to give it away to anyone who signs up for your mailing list. Or place a classified ad on ebay to attract leads to your mailing list. Or use your My Space page to promote it! Now you’re not only generating traffic that’s pre-disposed to buy your product, but you’ve also got the email address of potential future buyers!.
Affiliate programs (eg Clickbank and PayDotCom) can be used to further increase your profile on the internet by leveraging the power of the internet, especially if the affiliates are allowed to rebrand some of your links with their own affiliate codes. Your affiliates will work globally to promote your ebooks. Think about this. Can you see how you could make this work for you?
That’s why ebooks are so essential. Not only do they provide a forum for people to learn and make sense of their own thoughts, but they can also serve to promote your business at the same time.
