One great way to build backlinks to your website and to become an expert on your topic is to write an ebook on your subject matter and distribute it in a re-brandable format.
The key is that the ebook should be good enough to sell but you are giving it away for free. The content, graphics and even sales letter should be as if you were going to sell the product for top dollar.
Your Product Must Be Good Enough To Sell, Graphics, Content, Everything.
If you really provide a quality product and give people the re-distribution rights as well as re-branding rights they will be much more likely to share the book. If your readers have their own followers in your niche they should always be looking for a way to build a better relationship with their readers.
Giving away a first class ebook on their very area of interest is definitely one way to build that better relationship.
Now, I know you must be saying "I do not feel qualified to write a great ebook on my subject." Well, you are exactly the person who should write such a book! All the information is already out there you just need to do the research. And guess what? In doing so I guarantee you that you will become an authority on your subject! Learn by doing, learn by teaching. It works everytime!
Do Not Worry If You Do Not Feel Qualified To Write Such A Book. You Will Be By The Time You Are Done!
If you feel ambitious, I would suggest the "101 Ways To.." format. I know it is a bit cliche but it is a fantastic exercise. Anybody can use this technique to crystalize and better communicate their thoughts. Imagine if a politician wanted to become mayor of New York. He could write an ebook to distribute on their blog "101 Ways We Can Make New York City A Better City." Think how this would focus his supporters. Nothing like having your very own manifesto!
Just use your imagination and start researching and writing. You will gain more and more confidence as you research and write.
Now in your ebook you can include relevant links back to your website and blog. You can even include high quality programs in your niche that you recommend via affiliate links. This way when people distribute your ebooks you will be getting links back to your site as they promote the ebook on social media and different websites.
There Is Nothing Like Having Your Own Manifesto To Focus Your Followers!
Here is a kicker. You can use a service called Viral PDF Generator to make it point and click easy for your users to re-brand your ebook with their affiliate links and websites. Your new distributors will be extra motivated to distribute your material if they have their website link in the report.
Not only are they building a better rapport with their list by distributing quality material but they can earn commission and generate viral traffic from their re-branded links from within the report.
Here is my review of Viral PDF Generator.
This is exactly what I have done with my free re-brandable ebook "101+ Ways To Get Backlinks To Your Website." If you would like to get your free copy just go to my Facebook Fanpage here, like the page and you will be able to download the ebook as is and you will get a link where you can re-brand the ebook with your 16 different affiliate links,your website and social media sites.
Here is another tip. Once you have created your ebook "101 ways etc.." each point in the ebook can be developed into it's own full blown blog post/article which you can distribute for even more backlinks.
That is what I am doing here. The first "Way To Get Backlinks" in my ebook was the idea of distributing re-brandable original ebooks. I have simply developed that idea into a full article here.
