How do I use affliate marketing to market my eBook?

3 replies
Hi,

I have an eBook that I would like to promote as a prelaunch. I plan to offer early bird discounts to those who sign up.

The eBook is about my journey as a startup. I will share interested facts and hope it will be a survival guide for others.

Where is the best place to promote it and how can I find affiliates who might be interested in promoting it.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to reply.

    I have a couple thoughts,

    You could launch your book as a WSO right here on the Warrior Forum. You can make some money and build your list in the process.

    Or, look for launches coming up on Warrior Plus and Jvzoo of products that would complement your ebook. Contact the product creator and ask if they would be interested in offering your ebook as a bonus. If they agree you will have done some valuable networking and be able to build your list.

    You can launch your book on Warrior Plus and contact Muncheye and the other launch calendar sites.

    I wouldn't count on getting affiliates on board to promote a simple ebook. (Unless you're selling the book for $97 with a nice backend funnel. I don't know what your plan is) But in order to get affiliates attention you really have to have a track record of sales, give affiliates 100% on the front end offer, and have two or three upsells were they can earn 50%. You have to make it a sweet offer for affiliates to want to promote and your products have to convert.

    I hope this helps and good luck with your ebook launch.

      Thanks Brad really useful ideas I will take a look at!

      I never thought of linking with other product so it's certainly an area to consider.

      In general, the best way to promote ebooks is to add it to a "vehicle" (another related value that compels readers to purchase the bundle and provides affiliates some profit).

      I have also created software to feature one of my eBooks bundled with other resources.

      Ebooks alone can foster substantial sales, but they need to be written by some authority or success - are you now a Millionaire?

      If not, let it tag along for a ride within another high value sales funnel.

      But if you insist on trying to become a bestselling eBook author, send it off to Createspace on Amazon adding a hard copy edition to the options and creating some added perceived value as a "published" book.
      Unfortunately not a millionaire yet!!!

      Thanks for your feedback!

      Very helpful and I will look again at Amazon.

  • Affiliate Marketing is the great way to promote any product. We can give some discounts and commissions, also Network Marketing is the good way to sell products.
