If you don't have many articles written yet, approach someone who has written many articles and strike up a deal. Offer to turn his old articles into a free e-mail workshop wherein you can both promote your products, services or affiliate links.
Tip # 5: Create a Mini-Course Based on Your E-book
Have you written an e-book? Do you want to drum up some sales? Create a free mini-course based on your e-book and then put it on autoresponder. Your mini-course can be based on one or a few chapters in your e-book. In between lessons, insert promotional texts -- endorsements, excerpts, blurbs -- that can convince people to buy your e-book.
Tip # 6: Offer Free-to-Try Modules
If you offer a fee-based e-mail workshop, consider making available one or two modules as free-to-try modules. This way, people will be able to decide if they want to take entire workshop for a fee.
In your free-to-try modules, insert promotional texts for your fee-based e-mail workshop. You can even promote your sites, e-books, e-zines and other e-mail workshops. Even if they don't sign up for fee-based e-mail workshop right away, you can put them in your contact list -- they are your leads -- and you can later contact them about your products and services.
Remember Tip # 3? Yes, you can add these people in your list of solid, targeted leads.
Tip # 7: E-mail Workshop Today, E-book Tomorrow
Create an e-mail workshop first, offer it for free or for a fee, then compile it into an e-book later. You'll have two products to bring you profit. Offering something in two different formats, an e-mail workshop version and an e-book version, will give people two options.
Not everyone can devote time to an e-mail workshop so an e-book version of it will work for them. And there are those who like to take advantage of receiving feedback from other people in an e-mail discussion setting so e-mail workshop will be a better option.
Shery is now profiting from her e-mail workshops using Tips # 2, 3, 6 & 7. She'll be using Tip # 5 soon, and she's looking for a few good e-zine publishers, site owners, and content writers to partner with so she can put Tips # 1 & 4 into action. She wrote the only e-book on creating profitable e-mail workshops and it's at http://EmailWorkshopsHowTo.com.
