The challenge is to write a really useful eBook. Assuming that you do, then this method can indeed produce signups – eventually. As your book gains popularity, people will click through on the links you provide within it. Some GREAT books can generate literally thousands of leads, while other books may get you a handful of signups if you’re lucky.
If you have a book you’ve written, or if you’re happy to try writing one, then the benefits can be quite substantial over time. Not only will you be able to market it as a book, but you may use chapters from it as articles, and generally promote it to your respective niche, build your reputation and a following.
eBook syndication is not to be confused with article marketing or, for that matter, ordinary ebook marketing. Here, you GIVE your book to an online directory which specializes in promoting free books. A good example is Free eBooks which has been known to really establish some writers – and marketers.
What kind of a book? Well, in the vast majority of cases, “how to” books or “special reports” (anything PRACTICAL) tend to do really well. Especially if you target a large niche and give them exactly what they’ve been looking for!
Having your OWN book gives you loads of leverage and the ability to use it an endless number of times in all sorts of ways – once you’ve completed the effort to create it.
The idea is to give your eBook to an online directory – for free. Why? Simple. You get leverage: do this once, and utilize it many times (to build your list and make sales!). But you can go a step further. You can in fact split your book into chapters and submit it to article directories, thus multiplying the promotional value of your book! (See Article Marketing)
As your book gains popularity (or its individual chapters do), people will click through on the links you provide within your signature.
If you have a book you’ve written, or if you’re happy to try writing one (see great tips on “How To Write A Book“), then the benefits can be quite substantial over time. Not only will you be able to market your work but also build your reputation and a following.
