Continuing on from part 6 of how to make money selling on eBay with e-books, we now move on to viral marketing.
Part 4 – Viral Marketing
If you have written your own e-book and allow resell rights, you will want as many people selling it as possible.
To begin with, you should include all the sales material a reseller might need in order to promote your e-book. It will really make it more difficult for people to sell your products if you don’t offer things to help them get started more easily. Include a sales page they can use as their own; think about how much more unwilling you would be to resell a product if you have to spend time creating your own sales page for someone else’s product. Don’t let that happen to your resellers.
Also try to include as many images you can, along with an e-book cover, which is an image of your e-book in physical form. Your e-book will look more professional and inviting if they were to look at it as a real book. Also mention in your opening statement that you are allowing people to resell your e-book.
To further incentivize people to resell your e-book is to allow them to ‘own’ certain links within your e-book. For example, a link to one of your high-priced items or a link to their eBay store would only be allowed by that particular person. By creating more rewards for your affiliates and resellers you will have a greater chance of your product spreading virally.
The easiest way to get the process underway is to join an online affiliate program like Clickbank that specializes in digital products. This will give you access to an army of over 100,000 affiliates looking for products to market.
