"eBook Pro 6.0" question

by Alexa Smith Banned 7 replies
Have any warriors used "eBook Pro 6.0" e-book publishing software/system, with or without its associated Mailloop 6.0 e-mail automation software? Can anyone either recommend it or warn me off it, or anything else, please?

    Hi Alex,

    I've used eBook Pro for several reports and short ebooks. And no, you do not have to have the mailloop to go with it. It does great if you want to use exe files, and keep your content secure.

    Actually, I use it and Adobe Pro 8 for all my stuff, but it depends on what crowd I am offering what to.

    Hope this helps ...

      Is this ebook pro one of those that produce your ebook in an .exe format?

      if so, I don't recommend it. People don't like this format, they associate it with viruses.

      why not use OpenOffice and make it a PDF. Much easier and it's free.

      My exact concern, hence my interest. (Well, that and some other features of it which I've never seen elsewhere). Thank you, Mary. Are there any "ongoing running costs" with it after the purchase price? And how do you collect payment for e-books you sell with it - PayPal or something else? Thanks for your reply!

        You can secure you PDFs too with Adobe, but I'm not sure you can with Open Office. It seems to me you can though. It's free too as Jose pointed out.

        No need to purchase anything else. Once you purchase the software, that's it. There are no other fees.

        [Edited ...]

        I take that back. There are so many license keys you get when you buy the product. I don't remember the exact amount, but it's a lot. If you ever run out, you can purchase more.


        You collect monies with it just like you would with anything else. You can do it with any payment processor.

        What happens is you give them keys so they can open the ebook or report like bigger software companies use. Keys are like serial numbers (sort of to give you an idea).

        You can give individual keys, or the same key for all. That's up to you. You can also email them keys once your prospects purchase, and you varify payment.

          Hi,

          With the latest version of eBook Pro 6.0 there's no extra cost for extra 'licenses'. In older versions they used to come with 1000 'licences' then you'd have to purchase more but in eBook Pro 6.0 there's unlimited licences included for free with the initial purchase. Once you purchase it, there's no ongoing expenses whatsoever.

          I use eBook Pro for 1 of my ebooks in particular, mainly for the reason that I can deactivate their copy when they refund (unfortunately some dishonest people buy ebooks with the intention of refunding). As far as just keeping the information secure, I figure that someone could still copy the ebook if they were determined enough...whether it's eBook Pro or PDF. It's just the ability to deactivate refunders that I like to have it for.

          Some people are a bit funny about the .exe file, but I find that overall I don't have too many problems. I also keep a version of the ebook in PDF (made with OpenOffice) for anyone with a Mac computer.

          I personally wouldn't recommend you use Mailloop with eBook Pro though (I used it for a year or so). Mailloop works fine, but as it's run on your own computer you have to have a computer on the net 24/7 to process the emails & then you also have the spam problems with sending emails through your own computer. It didn't take long for certain ISPs to wrongly decide that I was spamming & block my emails from being delivered - I would then get quite a few unhappy customers who hadn't received their download/login details.

          If you want to use eBook Pro, there are however limited choices for delivering the codes automatically - Mailloop & 1ShoppingCart are the only 2 mailing systems that can do it (at least that was the case 12 months or so ago). I've transferred over to 1ShoppingCart now to manage my emails/autoresponders & deliver the codes, & have almost no email deliverability problems. As 1ShoppingCart is hosted on the 1SC servers you don't have to have your own computer on 24/7, & they deal with any spam complaints. If you're running you're own mailing system (like Mailloop), you have to try & make sure your emails aren't being wrongly marked as spam which can be quite time consuming & expensive.

          Cheers

          Rachel

    Hi Jose,

    Yes it's one of those programs.

    I wouldn't say not to use it though. It does have it's place, especially with known crowds.

    What Mary said,
    Long before everyone decided pdf files were the way to go, Ebook Pro was one of many ebook creating programs out there. Active Ebook was another. They had features that you just couldn't do in a pdf.
