One of the most effective means for creating an additional income stream with your ebook is through a simple website (direct response. )
It’s easy once you know the steps to setup your selling machine. Here are 5 simple steps to rake in the ebook sales with a direct response mini-site:
Step 1: Create an ebook.
Find a hot niche market for your best chance for Sizzling eBook Sales. Lots of people have found their niche market in their hobbies (interests), challenging experiences, trends, travel or experts around you.
There are literally thousands of niche markets to choose from. So what are you waiting for? It really is easier than it sounds.
Step 2: Setup your direct response website or webpage
There are several different models of websites that you can setup for your e-book. All the experts agree the best model to use is the direct response website. The direct response website is what some have termed as a mini-site that’s setup simply with limited options.
On this mini-site, you don’t want any distractions. You only want them to focus on your e-book offer. Normally, the DR min-site has its own domain name, a one page sales letter on the home page, order page, an affiliate page (optional) and an email capture form.
Shoe String Budget Tip: If you are starting with little or no cash, you can setup your mini-site as a webpage on your main website until you can get your domain name. But the best option is to get a wholesale domain name. I recommend Godaddy.com where at the time of this writing you can register a name for $8.75. Which is pretty good comparing some companies are still charging 19.97 - $39.99. I signed up for a service a few days ago that was soliciting me to register a domain at $30.00. Of course you know what I was thinking. Why when I can pay pennies elsewhere?
Step 3: Generate targeted traffic
Here’s where some people get stumped. They jump the hurdle of getting their direct response website setup but they are clueless as to how to advertise their site. For you see, it doesn’t matter how wonderful your mini-site is if no one knows its there.
It’s important that you focus on quality advertising methods. The methods must be one that connects with people that are interested in the e-book you’re offering.
The biggest mistake unseasoned ebook sellers make is wasting time and money on unworthy advertising methods. Most FFA (free for all) link site, traffic exchanges, safelists, ad blasters…etc.
If you invest in time waster advertising, you’ll only get burned out after getting very little in return. Instead, choose the proven ways to get targeted online traffic – both no cost and low cost.

Then to convert more of your visitors to customers setup an ezine, or a free gift to capture their emails and automate your follow-up. Finally, invest in your sales letter to close the sale. Implement the above steps to rake in a lion’s share of ebook sales in your targeted area. Remember, if you enjoy the journey life is made easier.
