Nobody knows more about your ebook than you do. Set up a page on your web site and provide your affiliates with all of promotional information they'll need to market your ebook. This information might include all of following:
- Banners - Sample ads - Articles - Reviews - Sales letters - Autoresponder courses
To further increase sales, create a sample or limited version of your ebook. This ebook should be used to intrigue and persuade your readers to purchase full version. This can be accomplished by allowing your readers to only view a portion of your ebook. In order for them to gain full access to your ebook, they must purchase password.
The key to using this technique successfully is to enable your affiliates to customize sales links within ebook with their affiliate information. This will provide your affiliates with a viral marketing tool that they can freely distribute and earn commissions for years to come.
Creating a Customizable Ebook
In order to create an ebook that can be customized by your affiliates, your ebook must be in HTML (EXE) format. In addition, you must have a special ebook compiler. This compiler will enable you to specify certain areas within your ebook that may be customized. When your affiliate downloads your ebook, they will also need to download an additional software that will be used to place their affiliate information within your ebook. There are very few compilers on market that use this technology.
Here are two that I recommend:
Ebook Edit Pro http://www.web-source.net/cgi-bin/web/jump.cgi?ID=2894
Activ E-book http://www.web-source.net/cgi-bin/web/jump.cgi?ID=105
Both of these compilers will enable you to create an ebook with customizable fields.
Developing your own affiliate program will not only enable you to increase your sales, but it will also drive targeted traffic to your web site. Even if your visitor decides not to purchase your ebook, they may be interested in some other products your web site offers.
Take your time and select best affiliate option for your business. If you'd rather not take time to run your affiliate program, you may want to use one of third party affiliate companies. This is easiest route and will enable you to concentrate on more important things -- like making more sales and writing new ebooks.
