I am preparing to publish an ebook in a few weeks, and have a question on format. Is it acceptable to deliver this ebook as a simple pdf document, which has been converted from a nicely formatted Word doc? Are there any issues of security or acceptable 'norms' that I should consider. It is research-based, and content-rich, and in a medium price range (under $50 - but will be cheaper as a WSO), so I don't want to appear to undervalue it by taking an easy (and less expensive) route to publish it than, say, buying special software.
Say you have separate websites for your blog/marketing site and different products. How do you make it feel as if they're related?
Imagine if someone signed on your blog and they'll get emails from another brand name/domain, because your product is sitting on another URL.
I have a question for everyone who is right now finding success in internet marketing. I know that it is a hard road to start being successful in this and that there are a lot of bumps and bruises that you get along the way. A lot of people give up without ever making it far and really growing their businesses, and a lot of people take a long time before they ever make a dollar. Just like any business, it takes a while to learn the ropes and start making your first profits, but once you perfect the systems, things get a lot easier and the checks start rolling in.
I wanted to ask: can you give any advice on overcoming failure? What did you do when you had an idea and it failed or something went wrong and you lost money? How did you cope with that and how did you bounce back? Did you go through a bit of sadness or feeling upset before coming to your senses and getting on with things or did you take longer to get over your first failures before you learned to cope well with them?
