Althoughrepparttar idea seems painfully simple, it appears to be uncharted territory. Many people circulate jokes overrepparttar 134297 Internet as a marketing tool, and many people circulate eBooks, but nobody seems to be circulating joke eBooks - until now. Stoecklein says that their eBooks take advantage ofrepparttar 134298 massive appeal of humor, but he stresses thatrepparttar 134299 hyperlinks in their books are not deleted by readers like they are in regular email jokes. Therefore,repparttar 134300 potential for subsequent web site traffic is much greater.


Roye and Stoecklein launched on March 3, 2001 by sending one of their eBooks to just a handful of friends and family members. Within days, they had recorded over 30,000 hits from several countries all overrepparttar 134301 world.

"We hardly did anything!" says Roye. "Within hours, we had people in Finland reading our books. I don't know about you, but I don't know anybody in Finland... Fresno yes, Finland no."

Whilerepparttar 134302 forecast may look good for,repparttar 134303 two comedians admit that everything is far from perfect and that they are continuously perfectingrepparttar 134304 concept.

"We're learning as we go," Roye says. "We're comedians, not Internet experts. Our biggest flaw is that we often ignorerepparttar 134305 rules." And what is their biggest strength?

"We often ignorerepparttar 134306 rules," he smiles.
