eBooks are the future and the future is now. The printed word on paper and bound into books used to be the only way information was given and received. They were great, you could take them with you and put them on shelves and they do still exist and will continue to for the foreseeable future but the time of the eBook has arrived.
The marketing eBook is a slightly different animal from just an eBook. Marketing eBooks contain text, images, links to web pages and navigation controls. The marketing eBook has become a very important part of marketing on the Internet.
With a marketing eBook you can present your story in an effective way and include links to your web sales pages. Your eBook can become your best salesman.
First, your eBook needs to be interesting and informative. It always has links back to your web site and to your sales page.
Next, be sure that you have a prominent section telling readers that they are free to give your eBook away. Let them know that they can post it on their site as a free download, that they can use it as a bonus, and that they can bundle it with other products. This is the way to create viral marketing for your products or services. Remember those links back to your site contained in the eBook?
Last but certainly not least before you send your eBook out to the world, double check spelling and grammar and be sure that you have tested every link to verify that it goes where it is supposed to go. Obvious errors will reflect badly on you and will not be of much value to you, it could even by damaging.
Post your eBook to some of the eBook directories. Many let you post it for free, or will let you post a link on their site to your eBook.
