Continuing on from part 5 of how to make money selling on eBay with e-books, we now move on to more of the necessary elements of your download page.
5. Add any technical information needed and your contact details.
It helps to mention any tools the customer might need to open and read your e-books. This will save you time by reducing the need for customer support.
6. Add an opt-in autoresponder form.
Capturing your customers’ email addresses after they make a purchase is extremely important. There is really nothing more essential to this whole process. Capturing your customers’ email addresses is going to be more important than the sale that brought a customer to your website.
Offer something of value to induce your customer to subscribe up to your list, anything free. Try to think of something that you would want and create something along those lines. Advice and free e-books seem to work well for me.
Make sure to use a reputable autoresponder company to manage your member lists. It is best to avoid free autoresponders because you will regret it. If you had to pick one thing to spend money on, it would be this. I recommend aweber.com. Remember, your subscriber list is the most valuable asset you will ever have in this business.
7. Put up more advertisements.
It can’t hurt to put up more advertising at the bottom of the page. Extra AdSense ads or something like a banner ad from Commission Junction is good. But make sure it stays relevant to whatever kinds of products you are selling.
Finally, make sure that the download link to your e-book comes first and that you thank your customer.
Part 3 – The Bonus Items Page
Include a ‘Bonus Items’ page as well. This is especially important if you are selling someone else’s e-book. On this page you can add some of your own e-books or other e-books you are selling through affiliate programs. Therefore if you are selling someone else’s e-book you will still be able to promote your own products.
