Viral Marketing Tips: Ebooks

Written by Richard Lowe

A great way to promote your site is to produce an electronic book. This viral marketing technique is actually very clever. You producerepparttar book, then allow others to distribute it without charging them anything from their own sites and ezines.

So how does this work? Well, you gather together between 10 and 20 articles. Less than 10 articles is not really enough of an ebook to attract much attention, and more than 20 makes for a large download. Remember to include enough material to make an interesting book, but not so much that those people with modems cannot download it in a few minutes.

Before you can actually create your ebook, you must decide uponrepparttar 134292 format that you want to use. Personally, I prefer Adobe Acrobat forrepparttar 134293 following reasons:

- The reader is free of charge

- It is installed on a vast number of systems

- The reader is available for Windows and MacIntosh systems alike

- It is an accepted format amongrepparttar 134294 user community

However,repparttar 134295 Acrobat writer product is a bit expensive (around $200) so you may not want to purchase a copy just to create an ebook. Fortunately,repparttar 134296 PDF file format is open standard, so other products exist which will create documents which can be read byrepparttar 134297 Adobe Acrobat reader. One ofrepparttar 134298 better products is called Easy PDF, which is available for around thirty bucks.

Adobe Acrobat - Easy PDF -

Something to remember - you don't need to write all ofrepparttar 134299 articles yourself. You can find suitable articles available for reprint all overrepparttar 134300 web. In fact, there are many articles available on this web site which you can use if you want. Just remember, if you use someone else's articles, follow their request for a return link (or links) and a couple of lines about their site (this is called a resource box).

Love Those Telephone Solicitors!

Written by Mary Wilkey

Hey, I'm just like you! I absolutely go spastic over these unwanted, bothersome calls—at least I used to!

Here is how I've learned to make lemonade out of these lemons: It is FUN, so EASY, and you just about have a captive audience, as they really don't know where you're going, and they will listen to you!

The first one I ever did went like this:

The gal said, "May I speak to Mary Wilkey, please?" "This is she."

"This is Darla from Eagle blah-blah-blah . . . "

I cut her off and said, "Hi, how are you today?"

She, of course, said "Just great—how are you?"

"Oh, I'm so glad you asked. No one cares much these days. To tell yourepparttar truth, I'm really having a lot of problems—my arthritis is acting up, my eyelashes hurt, and to top it all off, my dog just died!"

She reacted, "Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that!"

"Yes, well—things will get better, I'm sure—what company did you say you're with? Could you spell that, please?"

She did, and I asked whererepparttar 134291 company was located, and she said Denver and Atlanta. I asked where she was calling from, she said Atlanta, and I asked if she was from Atlanta, and she said that she moved there from Indianapolis, and I said I used to live there, and my daughter still does, and isn't it a beautiful city, blah, blah.
