Step 4: Make It Viral
This is a very important step. There seems to be a myth that if you make an ebook to give away then other people will just go crazy and start giving it to every single person they know. But that is not case. You need to give people an incentive to give your ebook away to their friends or email list. The best way to create an incentive is to make your ebook brandable, you need to make your ebook in such a way that other people can include their links in it (link to their web site or have it set up to include their affiliate links). As a side note, I use eBook Paper (www.webcashlink.com/ebookpaper) to accomplish this. Once you make it brandable, people will be dying to give it away because they will be benefiting too and guess what you have just done? With just one step, you have created a viral marketing machine for your web site! Congratulations!
Step 5: Use Your eBook To Build Your Email List
As I am sure you already know having a large opt-in email list is a key to online success. So when you create your ebook always include your subscription box or web form. This is especially important if you followed step 4 and made your ebook viral. Once you do this you will see a substantial increase to your email list, which is vital to establishing an online income.
Step 6: Start Marketing Your eBook
There are several ways to market your ebook and I am sure you can find entire novels on this subject, but for now I am just going to touch on a couple of very important methods. First of all start contacting webmasters that already have a big email list of their own. Tell them about your ebook and either offer them opportunity to join your affiliate program or give them your free viral ebook. In either case, once you do that they will start to recommend your ebook to their own email list, which might be several thousand subscribers. Another way is to search for ebook directories or ebook stores, and start submitting your ebook to them.
Once you have completed these 6 simple steps you will be well on your way to making an online income by selling ebooks.
