How To Create and Market Your own E-Book

Written by Michael Southon

Continued from page 1

There are many sites that offer ready-made E-Book templates, some free, some you would have to pay for.

Here's a site that offers free E-Book templates.


And here are 2 sites where you can buy ready-made templates:

If you decide to create your own format, here are some basic formatting tips. Your E-Book should contain:

(i) an Index page that serves asrepparttar entry point to your E-Book. It should contain a Welcome message, your copyright statement, and a link torepparttar 108460 'Contents' page of your E-Book.

(ii) A 'Contents' page. This should be a list of allrepparttar 108461 chapters in your E-Book, with Section titles for each chapter. The Chapter titles should be hyper-linked torepparttar 108462 first page in that chapter, andrepparttar 108463 Section titles should be hyperlinked torepparttar 108464 first page in that section.

(iii) A link atrepparttar 108465 top of each page of your E-Book that says 'Contents' and which takesrepparttar 108466 reader back torepparttar 108467 'Contents' page.

(iv) The Chapter title atrepparttar 108468 top of each page, so thatrepparttar 108469 reader knows which Chapter they are reading.

(v) A set of links atrepparttar 108470 top of each page that allowrepparttar 108471 reader to jump back and forth betweenrepparttar 108472 different sections ofrepparttar 108473 Chapter.

(vi) Forward and Backward arrows (hyperlinked) atrepparttar 108474 bottom right of each page which takerepparttar 108475 reader back one page or forward one page.

------------------------------ STEP 4: Selling Your E-Book ------------------------------

There are basically 2 ways of selling your E-Book: either you have a merchant account and accept credit cards yourself, or you use a '3rd Party Credit Card Processor'.

Here are two 3rd Party Credit Card Processors that I recommend. Neither of these 2 companies charges monthly fees.

Each has advantages and disadvantages, which I have summarized below:

--------------------- (i) Clickbank http://www.clickbank.com ---------------------

- To sell your E-Book through Clickbank, you will have to pay a one-time joining fee of $49.95

- Clickbank charges 7.5% per sale plus $1

- With Clickbank you will only be able to offer payment via Credit Card.

- if you use Clickbank to sell your E-Book(s), you also have a ready-made affiliate program. Clickbank will track your affiliate sales and send out checks every 2 weeks to your affiliates.

- Clickbank will send you an automatic email every time you (or one of your affiliates) make a sale.

- Minimum amount before a check is issued is $5

--------------------- (ii) Ibill (Internet Billing Company) http://www.ibill.com/ ---------------------

- ibill does not charge a joining fee.

- ibill charges 15% per sale (more for telephone billing).

- ibill allows your customers to pay in a number of different ways, such as online check, telephone billing, or credit card. Many people don't have a credit card, so offering your customers alternative ways of paying can significantly increase your volume of sales.

- ibill doesn't operate an affiliate program.

- ibill doesn't send you an email every time you make a sale.

- Minimum amount before a check is issued is $150

The possibilities with E-Books really are endless - you're only limited by your own imagination.

And remember: how ever obscure you think your E-Book concept is, there will be a market for it. In fact, that'srepparttar 108476 essence of 'niche marketing':repparttar 108477 more narrow your focus,repparttar 108478 more customers you will find.

Wishing you every success!
