MY STORY: My success has been through writing and selling (sometimes
giving away) ebooks on topics I have practical experience in.
In my pay-per-title ebooks, I share my knowlege (tooting my own
horn) of the clerical support field, gained over a 14 yr period.
The free ebooks I use, more or less, as a "teaser" to introduce
possible customers to my style of writing. Some freebie ebooks
feature related ClickBank links (for commission), others I include
rotating banners ads (charging others to have their banner included
in the rotation).
My goal when I initally started was not to get rich...just to
earn enough money to pay for my monthly internet and hosting fees.
So far (crossing my fingers AND knocking on wood), I have met
that goal plus some :)
HOW YOU CAN SUCCEED, TOO:
1) Write an ORIGINAL info-ebook on a topic you have practical
knowlege or experience in.
2) Use an attractive layout/template that is easy for the newest
of newbies to navigate.
3) Offer a free or shareware version, if at all possible. 4) Invest
in an attractive ebook cover.
5) Obtain paid hosting...avoid free servers with forced pop-up
and pop-under ads that can distract from your site's appeal or
lure visitors away.
6) Create a "partner" program (ClickBank's an excellent choice).
7) Be fair to affiliates..offer ONE form of payment processing.
You will need to expend a little money to make a little money.
For added revenue, include a banner rotation...and offer your
visitors the opportunity to "advertise in ALL freebie ebooks"
for the low, low price of...
The info-ebook biz is definitely one that YOU can start with
a very small investment, operate on a small budget and one that
offers the potential to earn hundreds in just months!
