Sell your Print Books and Create New eBooks
If you already have a print book, you can still sell it online.
One way to draw attention to it is to write a short eBook on the
same subject. This won't take long.
Make this eBook from 15-30 pages. You can take the
information right from your print book. Just copy and paste
information on one topic, perhaps one chapter. Reduce the
number of stories to keep it short. Then add a new introduction
and conclusion. People on the net want straight-to-the point
Put your eBook into Word and Portable Document Format.Use
your Word file to update and edit and use your PDF file to send
your book by email or from your web site. People are willing to print it out since it's not 200 pages.
Who will Buy?
You can sell your short rebook for 6.95-$24.95, depending on
how much your audience wants it and how well you write your
sales copy. You can also give this book away to stimulate your
audience to want the whole story--the print book.
Online audiences read all kinds of books. Many will want the
shorter electronic version and be perfectly willing to print it.
Others only want a book they can hold and enjoy on their
nightstand a long time.They will buy the print version. Or, some will buy the eBook and print it out.
To publicize your books start writing short articles, anywhere
from 300-800 words on your book's topics. When you submit
your articles to web sites and article directories, know that they will get published if you've edited them. Now, thousands, even hundreds of thousands of online readers will read your articles. They are hungry for free information. That's why they go to the web. After a few months, your articles will be listed on maybe 1000 other Web sites with a link back to where you sell your book. This number grows as your submissions do. Your bookcoach is now listed on over 129.000 web sites with a link back to her bookcoaching and book-selling pages as well as her new advancedarticlemarketing site.
Include in your submission your signature file or web bio that gives your title, tag line, book title, free offer, phone numbers, and e and web addresses.
While your title may impress some, your tag line is far more
important. What major benefit do you bring potential buyers?
For example, "Helps professionals make money on their books
through the Internet." Offer a free report or a free ezine to seal
the deal. You please your audience by giving free information, which may lead them to check out your book sales copy--even buy your book.
When they visit your site, they may subscribe to your ezine or order a free special report. Here, you collect their email and can use it later for more promotion. This is permission marketing.
Remember, the gold is in the list. Build your database.
Divide and conquer. Use your one book as a springboard for
many others to catapult your sales. Reluctant marketers and introverts will love this way to get their book into the hands of their audience.
