When it comes to selling ebooks online, one thing is certain: a small focused website that features just one lead product will far outsell a big website that features lots of products and links.
By focusing on just one product, you avoid distracting your visitors or forcing them to make decisions. That way, they'll take time to study your product and chances of making a sale are vastly increased.
I can see evidence for this in my own business. While main company website (BizzyDays.com) continues to bring in a steady stream of sales, it's actually individual websites for each of ebooks that are responsible for lion's share of orders.
The problem, however, with having one website for every single ebook is that it adds a lot of extra overheads. In general you're looking at minimum $100 for any kind of webhosting and somewhere between $8 and $35 for a domain name.
These are not huge figures, but let's face it, costs are costs and if you're in business you want to keep them as low as possible.
That's why I felt it was worth sharing with you my little 'trick' for setting up brand new websites for just price of a domain name.
This week I launched a new website for our ebook publishing guide "You Step By Step Guide to Success On The Internet". The TOTAL cost to set up this new website (http://selfpublishing-ebooks.com) was just $8.97!
So how did I manage that?
Firstly, it's worth noting that I use an excellent hosting service for my main website BizzyDays.com. One of many features they include for just $9.95/month is ability to create your own sub-domains (http://subdomain.domain.com).
