The Launch

I'll uploadrepparttar pages, double check them, then head forrepparttar 118006 search engines. Next, I'll get on about serious business, and wait a time. It takes a while these days to get listed.

I may take a crack atrepparttar 118007 pay-per-click search engines, just to get hits more quickly. But to play this game seriously, you need hard data on hits versus sales.

Something Different

I'm going to use an approach that again is not supposed to work with fiction. However, it works great with How To titles, so I'll give it a try.

I'll let visitors downloadrepparttar 118008 book and readrepparttar 118009 first 50 to 60 pages or so. They will order only if interested in readingrepparttar 118010 rest of it.

Checking And Testing

Withrepparttar 118011 above,repparttar 118012 site purpose becomes very simple: Generate a download ofrepparttar 118013 book. This is a lot easier to achieve than actually closingrepparttar 118014 sale. Given any hits at all,repparttar 118015 effectiveness ofrepparttar 118016 site in getting this job done will be easy to measure.

Of courserepparttar 118017 bottom line is, 1) Will anybody be interested? And 2), if so, will anybody buy? That last one is going to be a cliff hanger for a time.

What Next?

Given sales, I'll know 1) # of hits to get a download, #2) # of downloads to get a sale. Thus I'll knowrepparttar 118018 value of a hit. Sure, it will be soft data; you can't be sure until counts get intorepparttar 118019 thousands. But hey, if $100/month seems likely, with upside potential, here's what I'll do.

Launch More Sites I have five other manuscripts that are equally good. So I'll put them up as described above. If results are equally good, I'll build a central site, still themed, to whichrepparttar 118020 original sites are satelites. Then ...

Watch My Dust

I'll openrepparttar 118021 site to other quality work, perferably in genres no longer published. There are a lot of people like myself around who have written good tales that never made it into print.

If It Works

I'll be into a site that cost many hundreds of hours to put together, particularly when you add in some scheme for deciding upon new titles to offer and converting them to ebooks. Dollar costs might be more than $4000. But it will be a winner, for I will have demonstrated at every step alongrepparttar 118022 way that there are enough people who will read ebook fiction to make it fly.

An Unwarrented Risk If Built From Scratch

Inrepparttar 118023 paragraph above, I consider a fuzzy view ofrepparttar 118024 future, one that may not come about. But look atrepparttar 118025 difference in risk of time and dollars. To buildrepparttar 118026 above, then finally accept failure a year out would be a disaster.

But withrepparttar 118027 minimal risks in putting together that first mini-site, hey, this is going to be fun. I can easily afford a little time and a few bucks. And what if it pays off?

So What About You?

What crazy idea do you have down deep inside that makes people chuckle or laugh every time you bring it up?

However wild it may be, no matter how many scoff at it, risk a little time and a few bucks. You may be able to demonstrate you were right after all. And you'll be on your way to success.

And if it flops? No problem. Just try an even crazier idea. Keep it up, and you'll find gold. Lots of it.
