If you can't find a free version, verify from search results where you can buy it cheapest. (NOTE: Be sure to take a look in auction sites like ebay.com to see if it's on sale there).
If you have a ClickBank nickname, then try to buy from a merchant that also uses ClickBank. To find out, just click on order button and see if you're directed to a ClickBank order form. Scroll down ClickBank order page. In bottom left hand corner you'll see (in tiny letters) a digit followed by a slash follow by a word. That word is merchant's ClickBank nickname. Now, type following address into your browser address bar: http://hop.clickbank.net/YOURnickname/MERCHANTnickname
By doing this, you'll save between 5% and 50% off order price. (This will be lodged into your ClickBank account as a commission earned).
------SIDEBAR----------- If you don't already have a ClickBank affiliate account, you can open one for free here: http://www.clickbank.com ------------------------------
STEP 5 Once you've downloaded ebook plus sales page, you should evaluate book to see what you think of it. You don't want to sell garbage to your visitors/customers/subscribers. Likewise, if you're planning to target a brand new market, then you want to get your relationship with your new customers off to a positive start (after all, you want them to buy next hot product you stumble across ;-)
STEP 6 Personalize sales page with your own order information. Decide what price you want to sell ebook for (if author gives permission to resell at 'any' price). Set up your own order link (using ClickBank, PayPal, or whatever). Then send it online to your web server. Avoid using free hosting services as these tend to diminish your credibility (see here for an article on how I host brand new domains for free: http://www.bizzydays.com/reprint_rights/free_hosting.htm ).
STEP 7 Launch your marketing blitz! The quicker you can get your product out to as many people as possible, more money you'll make. Target it to your existing customers and/or reach new target markets. There's no shortage of information out there on how to market your product, so I won't get into all that here.
Whatever methods you use, make sure you use your money to target right audience. There's no point in advertising your insider guide to saving money on life insurance in an ezine that's aimed at 16-year old video-gamers.
And there you have it!
An easy and enjoyable approach to generating short-term surges in income that will turn into steady , longer-term flows of cash. The overall investment is usually small, and potential returns are very big indeed.
Try it out today. Keep your eyes peeled for great deals and act quickly when you spot them!
