FAQ#3: What’s the difference between Special Report Pricing vs. eBook Pricing?

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010


First of all, there are two ways you can price ebooks. You can give them away for free and use them as a lead generator or you can sell them. And how much you can sell them for really depends on your market. Soft markets, in other words, where people aren’t going to make money from your ebooks tend not to be worth as much as in those where they can make money. But even within that arena it depends on which niche you are in.

With special reports it’s the same thing. You can have special reports that are free and you also have special reports people pay for. I like the $7 report where you give people enough to make them feel like they’ve really learned something but you’re also using it to get them to take people to the next step.

But there are niches where people really aware of the legitimacy of ebooks yet, and I’ve heard of special reports selling in those niches for up to $199. So the bottom line is it really depends.

FAQ#2: What is the least amount of pages you can write and still have credibility?

Friday, March 12th, 2010


What is the least amount of pages you can write and still have credibility?

What I tell people is if you wrote an ebook and it was just 3 pages and it taught people how to make a million dollars and it worked every time, people would pay a lot of money for that ebook but What will happen is, people want to know that they are getting value for their money and they tend to do it by weight-so the size matters to people.

So what I always say is the optimum ebook is 80-120 pages. But you can have 150 pages, you can have 200 hundred pages but people generally don’t read over 200 pages. Now I know there are ebooks out there that are over 200 pages and they tend to be reference books.

But now with Kindle and ebooks exploding, really people are doing whatever they want. But I think the best is 80-120 pages and the reason is that people are going to print them out and it’s going to cost them money in their ink and paper-so you want to be aware of that. (Also people want their information fast and concise and 80-120 pages is best because it’s long enough to give value and short enough to be easily digestible.

FAQ #1: Will My eBook Have The Same Credibility If I Write It With Articles As A Traditional eBook?

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010


I am going to be doing a series of FAQ’s for my upcoming How To Turn Articles into An Outrageously Profitable eBook In 30 Days or Less Workshop. So check back  on a regular basis this month or join me on www.twitter.com/ebkcoach for regular notices.Thanks and Enjoy!

FAQ #1: Will My eBook Have The Same Credibility If I Write It With Articles As A Traditional eBooks?

It depends on the kind of ebook that you’re writing-what I mean is, the kind of information that you have. If you want to do a series of tips, or tactics, or a series short strategies -those are done best in an article format. Other ideas such as lists work better in an article format as well. So Absolutely! You are going to have just as much credibility as with a traditional ebook using an article format. In fact a traditional ebook isn’t going to work very well if you want to present what I listed above. The article format would be a better way to go.

Also if you want to repurpose the articles you already have and combine them with new articles into an ebook that will also work well as long as it’s done properly. (Just throwing articles together and calling it an ebook will NOT give you the credibility you want and need online!)

So you have to look at the material you are working and decide if it will work better in a traditional ebook format or an article format.

There is no one right way to do this. It really depends on the information you’re working with and if the information you’re working with is information you can break down into short articles and lends itself to that, then I highly suggest checking out my new workshop, “How to Turn Articles into an Outrageously Profitable eBook in 30 Days Or Less!
