Monetize my eBook using CPA

8 replies
i wrote and eBook (yes i actually wrote the whole damn thing) a step by step type book that sells for $40. i have a sales page type site I am using to sell the book directly. I also have a few blogs i am using as funnel pages. I am only getting organic traffic right now, which is VERY minimal and a pain in the ass to rank organically. I'm not giving up on that but....

what if I just did some PPC or similar and gave the book away for free but they had to provide a email submit or survey or some CPA type offer (related in topic to ebook topic) to get the book? Is this incentivized and therefore not cool with the CPA networks?

gotta be a way to give away this product that sells for $40 but make the money on CPA

    I'm very eager to see someone answer that question as I've also been wondering about such approach. Wouldn't it be more natural for people to complete few offers for free instead of making them pay? I think it also depends what people you target, some demographics are probably more willing to just pay than complete offers.

    This sounds like a great idea. I am also writing an e-book and was considering this idea, along with using my e-book on clickbank aswell.

    Hi,

    Ok I know exactly how you can make money with this. CPAlead.com They have instant approval. you put the content blocking widget with CPA surveys on it and someone must complete it to unlock your product. You can choose which surveys or ringtone offers must be completed. Some pay as high at $10.00 So if you want just enable all high paying surveys.

    it's not something new

    and in fact, there are many ways to do this (grey hat and totally white hat) other than cpalead

    I am not really in fond of cpalead

    I mention a couple strategies in my Rocket CPA Profit and I'll be happy to help you out
    but first of all, would you give more details on how you plan to promote it

      I have been trying to get organicaly ranked which is how i would like to promote it but its taking too long, so i thought i might us some type of PPC like adwords to get some traffic, but thats pretty pricey for my niche.

      It sounds like there are many angles to work it, so the question is how to promote the free eBook that is not too expensive.

    Yeah, many traditional networks have incentive offers so just take a look at the networks you belong to.

    Maybe test out doing a hybrid listbuilding/incentive..may be able to kill to birds with one stone. For example, you can have the people opt in (listbuild) to get a teaser report and then they must fill out an incentive offer to get the full report. You are thus building your list and getting paid on the front end with CPA.

    May work wonders

    DEFINTIELY INCENTIVIZED, but SOME networks (azoogle, affiliate.com) do have several incentivized zip & email submits, so .... use those.
