Here are two quick and easy ways to get informed before you commit to click.
1. Test the Author
Author means authority. A true author can live up to the claims of their sales page. Have a look at their web-site and see if they’ve written any articles. Or, better still, if they have an ezine sign up and sit back for a few days. Look at what they’re writing and see if it passes the three-point test.
if the author’s articles are misspelled and riddled with repetition, you can be sure their ebook will be the same. Look out for authors who have proofed and put care and attention into their written articles.
are they telling you something new in their articles and ezine? or are they recycling info you could have found anywhere?
A good author will share with you from their experience. They are like bees who visit thousands of flowers to make a pound of honey. Don’t buy from someone who’s articles give the hint that they’re just buzzing round the same old flowering weed!
This is probably the most important point. Real authorities on a subject are happy to share good information with you before you buy there book. They don’t write weak articles that hint at the hidden glories of their paid for product. They give you good info up front and plenty of it. If they are generous with the information in their articles, you would hope that their book will follow through and be an original and informative read.
But is you’re still not sure, you can always. . .
