How Can I Publish an E-Book?
« on: Jul 10, 2012 »

Hello Tony,

I have just finished writing a book. I want to publish it as an e-book in the Business Marketing Niche.
1.How do i convert the the book from a Word Document to a PDF Document?
2. How do i lock the ebook such that it will only be available for download by the buyer(s)
3. How do i get information about the book out in terms of getting people's email addresses if they want to sign up?
4. How else do i market the book besides the facebook advert you taught us?

In short,how do i go about getting this book out there as an ebook?

Also,how can i create a Sign -up page on WP site? People who visit my site should be able to sign up ?

Mike

Congratulations on the achievement. Good to hear you have written an ebook.

But are you following the study guide in the prospectus? Have you read the recommended library resources for the Chamber you are in? Specifically the section on Information Marketing?. I ask because some of your questions have already been covered in good detail in those materials and resources. So before going ahead to answer your question, I would advise you to go to the study guide and check what you are to read under information marketing in the second chamber and then Read them thoroughly

Specifically, read Cash at the Speed of Thought and also read through the links given under "Writing Sales Pages". You will save yourself some confusion and give yourself a lot of ideas if you read those two and also follow the study guide.

Now to your questions:

2. How do i lock the ebook such that it will only be available for download by the buyer(s)
This can only be possible in an automated selling system. If an automated system like clickbank was available in Nigeria, this would be very easy. Unfortunately, we have so far not yet found any reliable means of automatically selling ebooks (the closest we have found is info-mart.com but we had issues with their payment processing.)

Consequently, to the best of my knowledge, the only reliable means of selling an ebook in Nigeria at this time is manually. Which means people pay you and you email them the ebook as an attachment or mail them a link when you have confirmed their payment. There really is no way to "lock" an ebook under these circumstances. The only option is to upload it to a secret location hidden from the search engines and email it to whoever buys.

We actually offer free secure ebook hosting for our students (including you). We can upload it in a safe place for you and give you a link to give people who buy the book (terms apply). If you had followed the study guide you would have come accross this info. If you want this service just let me know.

3. How do i get information about the book out in terms of getting people's email addresses if they want to sign up?
I believe autoresponders under email marketing is what you need. Please read the following thread and pay special attention to the section on autoresponders: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

4. How else do i market the book besides the facebook advert you taught us?

In short,how do i go about getting this book out there as an ebook?

Marketing an ebook is not an easy job especially at the onset. To market an ebook first you need to create a sales page for it. This is where you talk about the book and advertise it like what we have at You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Next you have to decide if you want to use the direct method which is to send people directly to that page or if you want to go through the indirect method which is to try and first get them to sign up on your email list so that you can then send them messages marketing your ebook like we did with our 7 day free course. The indirect method is also known as email marketing and is explained in more detail here (note the section on autoresponders): You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Some definitions: For the indirect method, the page used to collect email addresses is known as a squeeze page. For the direct method, the page that talks about the product and how to get it is known as the sales page or sales letter.


Both direct and indirect methods have their advantages and disadvantages but most people believe that the indirect method works better unfortunately it will cost you some money because you need to pay monthly for the email autoresponder service.

Now when you have your sales page or squeeze page, the next thing is to try and promote them. For promotion You have the free methods and the paid methods. So you will either be promoting your squeeze page or sales page or both.

Paid promotion methods: Facebook, Adwords etc. You get Faster results but its not free. You can learn more about Adwords here: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Free promotion Methods: You get slower results, more time consuming.  Many different strategies like Posting in forums, SEO and content based (e.g writing articles and blogging, guest posting etc), spamming blogs and forums with your advert, commenting on blogs and pretty much anything you can think of to get traffic to your sales page. You have to do a lot of this posting and spamming and blogging and article writing to get the kind of traffic that can turn reasonable profits. The thing is to be relentless and keep posting in places where your prospective clients might be which is in Business related blogs and forums. If you are selling to only Nigerians then you should focus only on Nigerian forums and websites.

What they should be signing up for are your email updates via feedburner and not signing up directly on the Wordpress. Read the following post (try to also watch the video on the page too): You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
