THE FOURTH WAY TO MAKE MONEY FROM EBOOKS: VIRAL MARKETING

MAKE MONEY ON EBOOKS: 4 SECRETS OF SUCCESSFUL SALES

 

To make money on eBooks, you'll have to write them. Or find someone who has already written and can't sell at all. In this article, we reveal the secrets of selling algorithms. 

MAKE MONEY ON EBOOKS WAY ONE: BECOME A PARTNER

Participants in affiliate programs receive up to half of the income from the author's fee by promoting their affiliate link. No need to write a book or set up sites. You earn money by getting commissions from selling books written by someone else. It's just, it seems. 

Also you can promote sites which sell or rent out books for example Booksrun, which have very good affiliate program. 

BUT THERE ARE NUANCES HERE, TOO: 

First, you should go to the site of a popular book, flip through the page to the end and click on the link "Affiliate Program". Read the information. If you are satisfied with the terms, click on the "Become an Affiliate" button. Sign up. You will be given access to the affiliate link, which you will place on different platforms: book online stores, social networks, forums about books, etc. When a client goes through the link and buys a book, the money will be automatically credited to your account. 

YOU WANT TO EARN ON EBOOKS AND GET MONEY RIGHT NOW? 

No, it's not greed. It's normal and possible. Find a writer who's already selling his book and offer an information partnership. If you can't negotiate with different platforms, you can post articles about the book on your website or blog. But communicating with the media and publishers is a valuable skill and it is better to develop. So you will feel the market and quickly navigate. Use all opportunities for promotion. The advantage of a personal site is that you do not have to pay a percentage to someone else for posting information. You can also offer the author to engage in the sale of download links.  This is an elementary thing, but not all writers have the time and patience for this work. 

 

HOW DO YOU MAKE A REFERENCE LINK TO A BOOK VISIBLE?

Create a social media account, register on websites and forums for book lovers. Communicate with your readers. Ask them to write, film and dictate reviews. The more reviews you get, the better your chances to sell textbooks. If you create a book and sell it yourself, then after deduction of all expenses, all 100% of your profit will go to you. The second option looks profitable, but it is suitable only for brave writers. If you are not sure about your marketing skills - find a partner. And if you do not know how to write - find an author. Well, if you have no problems with both - find the distribution points of your work.  Where to Sell Your Books Create a one-page site. It will be a presentation, an annotation, and a recall of readers at the same time. Place your book in online digital product stores. For a percentage of sales. But before entering into any contracts, check out the rules and policies on selling books on these resources. 



WHAT IT TAKES TO WRITE AN E-BOOK, EXCEPT TALENT AND LABOR.

 

There are several secrets to the success of a future book. Some of them are quite boring, but if you need a result, you can learn them and apply them: 

 

INDICATED PRICE

 

First, determine the minimum cost. Remember to consider the return on your work. You will always be able to raise the price. For example, when a book starts to sell like hotcakes. Read also: How to find cheap textbooks 

 

ATTENTIVENESS

Work with the quality of your book. Read the manuscript before selling it. Hire a proofreader or ask someone you know to read the manuscript. An outside view helps you see typos and errors that you no longer notice. 

TIME MANAGEMENT 

Learn to organize your working hours. Make a plan. Prioritize your work. While working on a book, the creative process, you need to insure yourself against creative stupor. The plan will help you work no matter what. It will set the pace and rhythm. 

MARKET NICHE 

Determine the theme of the book. Analyse popular themes and make a list of market niches that are currently in demand. Write on topics that interest the reader, but only if they are close to you. If a writer writes a book in which only the desire to earn money is invested, no one will read it. Even despite the powerful marketing manipulations. Do not promote something that you are not interested in. The reader understands everything.

IDEA 

The main thing for a book is the idea. And it doesn't matter if it's a paper book or an electronic book. Looking for an idea, brainstorm, read thematic forums, take a walk in the city or area where you live. Observe the little things. Look out for passers-by, shop, bar and cafe visitors. Catch scraps of conversation. But don't do it on purpose. Don't embarrass people around you. Tactfully observe the world and you can see the best idea. It is believed that the local press is the best place to look for ideas, as it reflects the interests of readers. But it's not exactly true. If you're not going to write a book by inspiration, but by system, then you're going to social media. Browse the profiles of people in theme groups of your chosen genre. Do the analysis. You can even create a survey or participate in a discussion to get direct responses from people. Also read: How to publish your book - expert advice 

INTERESTING NAME

You need to learn how to come up with an original title that will cling to a person and therefore encourage them to buy the book. To understand the basics, we recommend you to read our article about creating captioning.  

GATHERING MATERIALS FOR BOOKS

Despite the fact that communication with living people, experts, eyewitnesses, opinion leaders, etc., as well as viewing documents, archives and even the filing of newspapers and magazines are the main ways to collect material for a real quality book, there are other methods. For example, fully automated content collection without the author's personal involvement. Services that search for information on a given topic with top Internet content you can find on the web, if you enter in the search "automated content collection". 

ATTRACTIVE COVER

Do not forget about creation of a beautiful cover. After all, it's the cover that attracts you in the first place. Master the graphic drawing program or template service. There are many simple design sites, where you can make a cover online without design skills. 

PROTECTION 

You should also think about protecting your e-book from pirates. This is a very deep topic, so let's focus on this aspect in more detail in another article. 

FORMAT 

There are 4 main common formats: 

  • pdf 

  • eehe 

  • fb2 

  • ePub 

PRICING

It is necessary to find out what price to assign for your book. Here you will have to peruse online shops, find out the markups, see how much are the books of other authors with similar themes and derive the average figure.

HOW TO MAKE MONEY FROM EBOOKS 

THIRD WAY:  

TOLL-FREE ADVERTISING BOOK

 

How it works: The Reader downloads your free book and enjoys reading. Before you give the book away for distribution, you write promotional links in it. For example, to download the template paid sites, where you need to pre-register for an affiliate program. And then the profit will go not by downloading the book, but by downloading the template paid sites. Thus do not forget that the advertising link should be located in a context of your book and help the reader to find the best services and products. Do not place links that do not resonate with the context, do not clog the Internet with useless advertising.
