Why You Shouldn’t Give Away Free eBooks

Why You Shouldn’t Give Away Free eBooks

If Internet Marketing were a college major, in Lesson 1 of “Internet Marketing 101” you would be taught to give away free ebooks:

* As a promotion for your main product * As a bonus to enhance your product offering * As an incentive to build your email subscriber list

Anyone who’s into Internet Marketing is familiar with this fundamental technique. Practically every ebook you read teaches this.

I boldly declare that I disagree with this strategy! I know this goes against many ofrepparttar teachings ofrepparttar 134267 top marketers, but I say – don’t give away free ebooks - and I’ll tell you why…

Reason 1 Giving away ebooks written by someone else is like owning a candy store and offering everyone who comes into your store a free sample ofrepparttar 134268 candy fromrepparttar 134269 store acrossrepparttar 134270 street. You essentially are promoting your competitor’s business for free.

Reason 2 If you’ve written a free promotional ebook, what incentive are you giving other marketers and publishers to promote it? Going back to reason 1, is it really in their best interest to distribute your product? You may not realize it, but you are losing money from what’s known as opportunity costs.

Don’t get me wrong,repparttar 134271 free ebook strategy has been successfully used for many years. However, now there’s an even better strategy - Brandable eBooks.
