Here an Ebook, There an EbookWritten by Wayne Patterson
Here an ebook, there an ebook, everywhere an ebook! If Old McDonald had a computer it would be full of ebooks. My inbox is crammed with offers to sell ebooks, publish ebooks, write ebooks, and get filthy rich selling ebooks on internet. All that is required is to purchase some guru's ebook and learn his or her amazing secret. I may not be a guru but I have been a farmer. I know what you have to be careful of stepping in when you cross barnyard. That's exactly what most of these offers are full of and only "filthy" you are going to get.
You are considering becoming involved for first time in internet marketing. That means you are a "newbie." You don't know html from email. Naturally you are intrigued by promises of instant wealth. So you surf around with your PayPal account and soon your hard drive is overflowing with useless ebooks. Your credit card is also overflowing with debt. This completes your first lesson in Ecommerce. "The wealth of a few is built upon failures of many."
Then how are you newbies going to get accurate information necessary to be successful on web? One answer is that you can surf net and cram your hard drive full of ebooks, ezines, and articles at amazingly low price of FR*E! The cruel fact is that many ebooks are out of date and that somewhere on net same information is probably available for FREE. It may take you a little longer to locate but I personally prefer FREE over PayPal. If someone has a secret that will make you an overnight millionaire do you really think he is going to sell it for $19.95?
Getting more out of your visitors.Written by Brian Holte
I've recently launched my own ebook site back in April and have been brainstorming ways in which to promote my own ebooks, have thought about e-bay but just not sure about. Also, one research strategy I've used when it comes to researching on what people want on internet is usual of going to forums and seeing questions that people ask. This seems to work fine but than I thought about another away, like offering a free ebook on a particular niche market, just make it a short 3 or 4 page report, than I develop a webpage outlining benefits as to why my visitor should download it besides it being free. If they decide to download it, they click on a link taking them to a visitor feedback page where I ask them to answer 2 short questions. 1. What other forms of information would they be interested in receiving on that particular niche market. ie. Dog Grooming. 2. What kind of software if any would they like to see developed and would use in relation to their particular interest.
