Every good pitch page out there for an ebook has at least half a dozen great testimonials for the product. Great testimonials sell books. There is no doubt about that. But if you have a new ebook, how do you go about getting great testimonials to use for it when your book first comes out? That is the question we will address in this article.
Let's begin way ahead of what should happen before you even write your ebook. What I always suggest is that authors sit down prior to writing their book and, with a pencil and paper, write down three absolutely glowing testimonials for their book themselves.
Now wait! I'm not recommending they actually use these testimonials for their book, just that they write them. for more detials:-www.profit-pulling-ebooks.com.They should make them exactly the kind of testimonials they would like to someday receive. These testimonials then act as content cues for their book. In other words, what content would they have to pour into their book in order for readers to give them testimonials such as these?
You see, by doing this, it almost tells you exactly what content your book must have. It tells you, in essence, what to put into your book to make it sell.
Okay, but maybe you've already written your ebook and you will be making it available in three weeks on the Internet. How can you generate some great testimonials fast for your book?
I have two suggests, both of which are killer techniques. Get on line and look to your competitors. The best thing to do is to look for other authors who have similar, but not directly competing ebooks. For example, if you've written an ebook on fly fishing, look for authors on line who have written books, not on fly fishing, but on some other form of the sport.
Then contact them and provide them with a copy of your ebook FOR FREE. Ask if they would be willing to give you a few sentences you could use as a testimonial. Explain that your book is debuting in a few weeks and you would like some comments from recognized experts in the filed of fishing.
And here is the big thing: Explain that you would like to include their comment on you web page AND that right under their comment, you will include their name and the URL for their web site. for visit detials:-www.make-your-ebook-sell.com.This is free promotion for them! Visitors to your site will see their name and URL and some will check it out. This method is used all of the time very successfully.
Another thing to do is to go to Google and under the "more" link at the top of the search page, scroll down to "blogs". A lot of affiliate promoters of ebooks use blogs to do product reviews and run ads for the ebooks they promote. There are tons and tons of bloggers out there and they may not only be willing to give you a testimonial for your book--they may be interested in becoming an affiliate for it!
So do a blog search, in this case for fly fishing, and see what comes up. Get with these people and again offer them a free copy of your book in exchange for a comment. Again, offer to list their name and blog under their comment on your site.
You need some good testimonials and these techniques will get them for you!
