eBay eBook Success - How to effectively distribute your own Resellable eBook
Once you have your own resellable ebook you have a very powerful promotional
tool in your hands. However, this is no use to you if it's not distributed
effectively as no one will read it. In this article I discuss a number of ways
that you can effectively distribute your ebook.
1. Sell it on eBay: This is probably the most obvious way to distribute
your own ebook. Get some graphics ready for your ebook (either design your own or
get a professional graphic designer to do it for you) and then list the item on eBay
with resell rights. A certain proportion of customers will also resell your
ebook increasing its distribution.
2. Include Graphics, a Delivery Email and a Sale Page: Always make your ebook
as easy as possible for potential resellers to sell. Looking at it from the
resellers viewpoint, lets say they receive two ebooks - A and B;
A Includes a sales page, graphics and a delivery email.
B Includes just the ebook.
Which one are they going to resell? It will be most likely ebook A because it's
virtually ready to go on sale. With ebook B the reseller will have to get
graphics, design a sales page and come up with a delivery email, all of which
take time and effort. The majority of ebook sellers will take the easy option so
including all the above is a must.
3. Give it away on your Website or About Me page: If you want as many people
as possible to have a copy of your ebook then give it away for free. The problem
with this strategy is that people may devalue your work if it is freely
available. I would therefore advise you give it away in exchange for the
customers email address. People will value your work more if they have to give
something (even if it's not money) to receive your ebook. You can give your
ebook away on your website, eBay About Me page - or both.
4. Give it away on Forums: Many online forums have a free ebook section where
you can give away your free ebook. One such example is The Warrior Forum's Free
Ebook Section. These are a great source of exposure for your ebooks and cost you
5. Give it away to your Subscribers: As I've said before if you don't have
an email subscriber list then get one. If you do then this is a great place to
distribute your ebook. Since the subscribers have opted in to receive content
from you it is likely they will be interested in your ebook and want to resell it.
6. Give it away to other eBay Ebook Sellers: Have a little search on eBay
and find some eBay ebook sellers. Then get in touch with them through eBay simply
telling them about your new ebook and asking if they would like to resell it. If
they do - Great. If not, you've wasted a few minutes at the most. Most eBay
ebook sellers will be happy to resell your ebook because it's new content which
they have paid nothing to acquire.
