Hi everyone,

I have an ebook and I am in the process of creating another, although it might take some time. I was wondering what format I should place my ebook on. I currently promoting it on my Instagram. However, I was thinking instead of a website for it, I can create a Facebook group, page or a wordpress blog. I'm not sure what to do. Would love some advice.

      Ultimately, the best traffic is your own traffic, that you send yourself. Paul Meyers taught me that, long ago. Good advice.

    yes a facebook page would be useful, because you are already using instagram and could connect these two-> double traffic without much extra work
    additionally you should go to facebook and find some groups which are in your niche and find potential readers in there.. connect with them , be friendly, helpful etc you know what I mean

      Thanks! But I can't pull emails through Facebook really. I would need some kind of capture service.

    So how does someone get the ebook without a website...how is it delivered. So if you have a simple website to deliver the ebook. I would promote with Social Media first...Twitter, Facebook and then considered paid traffic like solo ads etc. It all depends on the topic. If you have a popular "social" topic then instagram is fine, YouTube would be best

    keep promoting on social media + I would suggest your own website as having an ebook without a website is like selling a book without a bookstore

    If you are in the long run related to selling your ebooks, try platforms like, use platforms like Slideshare and post couple pages of your EBook as a preview. Make multiple listings, it is going to receive organic traffic for the times to come

    You could also try digital delivery sites such as TradeBit.com and Payhip.com. Those platforms are great ways to sell products without having your own website.

    Friend, website is must for ebook to promote better. You have already done hard work now just create a website , write a good sales page (that is not big deal for you) and you are done..For more better result, hire some sales page designer that could give them professional look. That's all done..

    These all cost few bucks but it will pay back more.Moreover, one time cost and work...If you go without this...your most of hard work go in vain.

    Mailing lists are quite good ways to do it. Or just social media.

    Social Media is a good way to go but also have you thought about third party marketplaces that allow you to sell via their websites, they may take a small cut (commission) but they already have driven traffic to their websites which could prove well for you.

    The best way is to create a squeeze page and build your email list, and then send them your offers. do this and you will collect new leads who become loyal audience in your business. once you do that. start a captivating blog and write between 5-20 articles and focu on serving your visitors.

  • Congrats to you for completing your E-book. May be good to consider putting your E-book on platforms like JV Zoo, ClickBank, Amazon, etc and get others to promote for you.

    You will definitely have to pay a small fee in the form of commission for these affiliate marketers.

    You can also consider running solo ads from time to time.

    Sell it on your own website. You have no competition there. You won't have to under price it, and you get the opportunity to sell 1-to-1 without any competing ads or competitors who are selling similar items. Never rely on another platform other than your website to make money. Once the platform goes - or the rules change... so does your income.

    Usually, your marketing approach should depend on your niche (the niche of your book). when you have identified your niche, you can now focus on identifying your potential market. i would advice you look for relevant face book groups for your products and interact for now.

    If you don't have a website then you could try selling your ebook on Ebay, Forums related to your ebook or Amazon.

    I would advise that you go for a blog. If you can remain consistent and promote the blog, you are likely to create a following that will be interested in the ebook.

    If you want to do this long term, you need to build up a brand and a following first. So the strategy is put out valuable content on platforms such as Facebook, Youtube, Quora etc then put your ebook link on your profile or at the end of the content.

    If you can post valuable content out there, people will eventually want to know more and check out your eBook. I would sugguest you to create a self-hosted Wordpress blog and create a page promoting your eBook.

    So when you promote the page of your eBook on other platforms, you are also doing SEO in the process and you will rank on Google with low difficulty keywords. So you get even more traffic to your eBook.

    Another way to do this is paid traffic but the money you make will be short term.

    Web hosts, websites and autoresponders are so cheap these days I don't understand "why" anyone could not afford it. Heck, all of that can be obtained free.

  • Without a website there are a few options I would recommend.

    1) Facebook posts/ads
    2) Run Solo Ads with your contact info (instead of a website)
    3) Twitter posts with your contact info
    4) Safelists with your contact info (instead of a website)
    5) Craigslist Ads with your contact info (instead of a website)

    I think you should combine all of them. The social media and a good blog can give you the traffic you need to make your business profitable.

    If you are referring to how to be able to deliver the ebook without a site, you can do so via Google drive. You can share a pdf. However you are better off having a website. Hosting it's pretty cheap for something like this.
