#3 - IS THERE A FREE TRIAL DOWNLOAD?

Look for a free trial download of one or two chapters from repparttar ebook. This is a very good sign ofrepparttar 108476 author's confidence inrepparttar 108477 product and your opportunity to get a glimpse of what you'll be getting withrepparttar 108478 full "paid-for" version.

Always use this option if available. You can tell a lot aboutrepparttar 108479 ebook andrepparttar 108480 quality ofrepparttar 108481 content by reading a single chapter. A free trial download generally comes with a table-of-contents, too. Here you'll get an idea ifrepparttar 108482 ebook is going to deliver MORE or LESS than what you expect forrepparttar 108483 price.

#4 - WATCH FOR THOSE "USE-IT-FOR-A-FULL-YEAR" GUARANTEES

Contrary to what you might believe, a LONG guarantee period usually signals lower quality.

Think about it. Do you remember what you purchased a year ago? This type of guarantee can lull you out of a sense of urgency to evaluate your purchase. The author is likely hoping you will "download-it-and-forget-it".

I have much more confidence in my ebook purchases when there is a simple 30 day "no questions asked" money back guarantee. It signals to me thatrepparttar 108484 author is confident that I will be a satisfied customer.

#5 - "YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR" DOESN'T ALWAYS APPLY

Ebooks literally cost next to nothing to produce and deliver. Therefore,repparttar 108485 prices of digital products are determined strictly from perceived value. And perceived value is directly related to good (or bad) sales copy.

Do a little research onrepparttar 108486 author. Many times you will find thatrepparttar 108487 content ofrepparttar 108488 author's newest ebook is no more than a collection of articles posted for FREE at his web site only re-written in a little more detail.

Think twice before you shell out $97.00 plus for an ebook. Withrepparttar 108489 current ebook craze you RARELY get what you pay for.

#6 - ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS DEMAND VALUE

Is there a "no questions asked" money back guarantee? If there is, and you DON'T find a value that meets or exceeds repparttar 108490 price you paid, USE IT!

Unfortunately, this "make-a-quick-buck" craze gives a black-eye torepparttar 108491 quality-conscious ebook publishers and their affiliate programs. By demanding quality we may eventually see an end torepparttar 108492 current tide of low value ebooks.
