Are You Looking For Quick & Easy Ways To Sell Your eBook? Try These Tactics NOW!

Saturday, May 29th, 2010

As “The eBook Coach”, I work with people who want to sell ebooks, and interview people who are selling a lot of ebooks on a regular basis. And from my personal and business experience, I’ve compiled a list of 52 ways to sell ebooks. I also picked up a couple of tactics  from Internet Marketing Guru Matt Bacak. So here are two you may not have thought of.

1. Advertise your ebook in your Twitter profile.  Twitter is a great place to advertise your ebook because you can get in front of  a lot of people and it doesn’t cost you anything.  The way Twitter works is that you can start looking for “friends” and Twitter allows you to have 10% more people that you follow than are following you-which means you can initiate the process to get started quickly and build a list very quickly- and it’s really easy to get the first 2,000 friends.

And as you add these “friends” and they see your profile and they tell other people, you get more and more followers. And the more followers you get the more people will see your ad for you ebook. One way to make sure you are getting targeted followers (people who are actually interested in what you offer) is to go to www.search.twitter.com and look for people whom you think would be interested in what you do and connect with  them.

Then what you can do is advertise your ebook, say for two weeks and see how many sales you get from it. Then try putting something free that leads to your ebook and see if that does better or worse.  You might decide to go with the one that gets you the most sales or you might decide to go with the one that gets you more leads.  (It could turn out that you get both more sales and leads from one tactic over the other-but you always want to test to see which does better, don’t guess.)

Another tactic that I use all the time is advertising on Instant Teleseminar (My link to Instant Teleseminar if you want to use it is www.instantteleseminarsnow.com) . When you set up a teleseminar there, you can add 3 links to products plus your main “call to action”.  If you are speaking on a topic that is related to your ebook, be sure to list it there. 

When you’re giving a teleseminar, your listeners  have already told you they are interested in what you are talking about by signing up for you teleseminar-so it’s likely that they will be interested in purchasing your ebook as well.  Be sure to  remind them on the call that your ebook can be found  on the Instant Teleseminar page. That way they will be more likely to make a purchase and you will probably pick up some sales you would not otherwise have made.

These are just two of the many ways you can sell your ebook that you may not have thought of. To get my free pdf 7 Quick & Easy Ways To Sell Your eBook Now!

There’s Something Armand Morin Isn’t Telling You About “Amp”…..

Sunday, May 23rd, 2010

Have you seen Armand Morin’s new 90-minute training video about his new program “AMP”?  If not, you should check it out at http://tinyurl.com/ampvideo

But before you do there’s something you should know that Armand isn’t telling you. And I want you to know, it’s not that he’s lying, or that he’s purposely leaving something out, it’s that he doesn’t get it.  (None of the big guns get it.)  I know because I’ve seen several of them fall into this same trap. 

In fact, I heard one who made several million dollars on his first launch-and who was connected to many of the top experts before he got online-say that he would have had that success regardless in his opinion (U-huh!);  and it’s not just in Internet Marketing. 

I was once at a song-pitch when I was in the music business and we were told that the guy we were going to hear speak that night had “made it” with NO connections.  But in his talk it came out that his girlfriend was VERY well-connected.   Or take the example of a huge star like Dean Martin, great looks, could act, could sing, saying if he could make it anyone could. (Please!)

And, I’ve seen many people spend thousands of dollars buying products and trying to duplicate what Armand and other’s have done with dismal results; then they come to me scratching their heads, feeling disillusioned trying to figure out what went wrong.

So let me explain.  Armand has come up with a brilliant system that makes him about 3.3 million dollars a year with almost no work.  And the way it works is you create a free newsletter that you give away but you don’t write the whole thing yourself. You get other people to do the work for you. But not just anybody.  You get OTHER EXPERTS on board.  And Armand says it’s easy to do.  (He’ll explain in the video http://tinyurl.com/ampvideo -there’s more to it)

Well, it’s easy for Armand to do! Armand makes 20 million dollars a year, Armand trained many of the experts who appeared in The Secret, Armand is awesome!

But can YOU get real experts  in your field to contribute to your newsletter?  Maybe, maybe not. 

And if you can’t, it’s because either you don’t have a list and/or you’re not seen as an expert. And if you don’t have a list, it will take a little  or a lot of time to build -depending on how you do it. But if you’re not seen as an expert, you can do something about it pretty darn fast (and build a list at the same time)! 

What you want to do is write an eBook using my 3-Day System.  Because the word “author” comes from the word “authority”.  We look up to authors, and when you author an ebook doors open! And there’s no better, faster or easier way to write one then with my unique process.

In fact, one of my students, Carey Peters www.coachtoolstogo.com wrote an ebook while working with me and got asked to speak at one of THE top live conferences in her niche because of it (plus she went from $2,000 a month to $9,000 a month in 10 months)!

I wrote my first Internet ebook “The e-Book Journal for Authoring Success” in 3 days and used it to launch The eBook Coach business and I was referred to as a  ”Guru”  within one year of starting my business-at which time, I got the opportunity to write another ebook, “Sell More eBooks, Low & No-Cost Tactics To EXPLODE Your eBook Sales & Downloads” with Internet Guru, Jim Edwards (currently ranked #20 in the world)!

From that I was able to launch my Virtual eBook Expo and I have had many of the top Internet Experts as guests including Armand Morin! But it all started with an ebook.

eBooks work! So go watch Armands 90-minute training video at http://tinyurl.com/ampvideo  but if  it’s right for you register now! It’s going to be an awesome course. But, if you find that you’re not getting access to the top experts  you might want to also consider  writing an ebook.

What’s In A Name? Online Profits And Here’s Why…..

Tuesday, May 11th, 2010

Why name your systems, services, programs and procedures? Because if done right, it will make you A LOT more money.

Tell me, what would you rather have? A cup of coffee or a Tall, Grande or Vente? Frappucino? A hamburger or a Big Mac? A glass of water or l’eau mineral? How about H2OM? Running shoes or Nike Zoom Mawlers? Mascara or Volumizer? (Note how the transformation is contained in the 2nd name.) A cell phone or an iphone?- the ultra-cool brand is contained in the 2nd name.

Would you rather “do research” or Google? Join a membership site or a Diamond Mastermind?

  • A name creates contrast – an Old Brain tool that makes decisions easy.
  • A name creates exclusivity – (I have it, you don’t.)
  • A name creates a community – (Want to hang with the In crowd?)
  • A name creates a seductive gap between you and others – essential for creating desire. (If you had this you’d be happier/richer/healthier/smarter/etc.)
  • A good name should be either exotic or simple street language – another Old Brain favorite. (Makes you feel comfortable – or – chic, cool, savvy)
  • A great name is visual – most brains process visually.
  • A great name contains the transformation that occurs. (Volumizer, Pampers)
  • A name is proprietary – name it and you claim it. Forever! (ask Steve Jobs)
  • A great name stimulates “gotta have it” emotion – essential!

Notice how many ultra-successful entrepreneurs NAME their systems and programs.

  • The Millionaire Protégé Club – Ali Brown
  • The Invisible Close – Lisa Sasevich
  • How to Charge What You’re Worth and Get It – Kendall Summerhawk
  • Life on Your Terms – Anthony (Tony) Robbins
  • The Ultimate Edge – Anthony (Tony) Robbins
  • Ring of Fire Coaching Club – Howie Jacobson
  • Simplifying and Demystifying New Media So You Can Profit from It – Sherman Hu
  • Instant Wealth-Wake Up Rich! — Christopher Howard
  • Chicken Soup for the Soul – Mark Victor Hansen
  • Big Mission, Big Sales – Lisa Sasevich

Why create a powerful, emotion-driven, trigger word, high-contrast name? So more people will want what you have, urgently. And you can charge more for it. The next time you offer a teleseminar, or a coaching series, or you offer your system to your market, think about naming every single part of it. You will experience greater interest, attention, urgency and action.

Websites are Going Interactive, Are You? (Learn More On A Complimentary Teleseminar)

Thursday, May 6th, 2010

There’s a silent revolution going on with websites. Over the last 6 months to a year, there has been a quiet, but decisive shift in the idea of websites. The old website model was a static model. Small changes were made every so often, and a big overhaul every few years.

But now, people are developing an INTERACTIVE relationship with their websites. Websites can be changed daily or hourly. They can be responsive to what’s going on right now in people’s lives. They’re not static anymore – they’ve gone interactive.

What caused the change?

I’d say this shift can be attributed mostly to a remarkable software that started out as a blogging platform, but now can be used to power any website – WordPress.

The ease, speed and functionality of WordPress is changing the way web sites are being used (and perceived), and will continue to change the idea of web site for a long time to come.

Back when Web 2.0 started – it didn’t take long for people to catch on to the idea of interacting practically in real time. Web 2.0 sites took off like wildfire and that’s what we all take for granted now.

For the longest time, that kind of interaction just couldn’t be done with websites. But today, to a large extent, it can.

Now, you can connect your website with Twitter, Facebook, all kinds of social networking, you can take polls and put multi- media on your websites. Readers can leave comments, which you reply to.

As great as that is, the real interactivity is happening with between the website creators and their websites. Not only are the functions of websites becoming more interactive, but also, website owners are interacting a lot more with their own websites.

As a website owner using WordPress, you can go in and change what is on your web site anytime to reflect what is happening in your life. You can put up new messages whenever you want.
You can shoot a quick video of anything – an interview, commentary or what you saw driving down the street and have it up on your site in a few minutes. You can be in charge.

This started with blogging years ago, where adding updates and new posts is easy and fast. And once people started using WordPress as a website creation too, they discovered you can do the same with websites. And that is revolutionary!

Compare this to the old way: you decide you want a website. You have to find a good web designer or webmaster. You look at different options, different plans, you look at lots of templates and talk about the best way to set up your site. You give the webmaster your ideas, usually some text to put on the pages and maybe some pictures and wait and see what he came up with. It usually costs quite a bit, take a long time, and you’re not always satisfied with what you get.

Today with WordPress, if you want to change the look of your website, it only takes a few seconds to change your theme (the appearance). The theme change does not affect your content in the least.

If you want to add functionality, there’s a plugin for just about any function you can think of, and they are easy to install. Changing what appears in your navigation is as easy as drag and drop, and so is changing colors or font styles.

A huge boon to the idea of using WordPress for website creation is the ability to add functions that let you easily create optin pages and sales pages – creating full marketing systems.
Now, authors, speakers, coaches, small business owners and entrepreneurs can easily create their own marketing campaigns and promos when they need them.

People are developing new ways to use WordPress every day.
This interactive web site revolution is just beginning!
