What kind of website do you need to sell an ebook?

5 replies
Hi there,

I want to have websites built for different ebook products. Is it best just to have mini websites built with sales letter or is it best to build authority sites with more info pages, blog attached etc.

I will essentially do article/video marketing direct to sales page

Will promote to affiliates

If your aim is to have many info products is it best to just get a hot sales letter up or do you really need to have more content and a blog etc?

I just want to make up a simple plan to begin with to roll out as many projects rather than work on one for longer than necessary.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

    I think either approach can work - either simple smaller websites talking about / reviewing just one product, or type of product, alternatively larger sites can work too, and obviously you get the benefit of people looking around, clicking on a few things perhaps, coming back for reviews on new products as you add them etc.

    But I think you have to keep it relevant really - you still have to have a niche - you could make something just around "improving confidence" and review various different products and ebooks which help you to do this, or you could make it about hypnosis and review all different hypnosis companies, their popular CDs, new albums that come out etc -

    here are a couple of larger websites which do get decent traffic:
    MIND POWER NEWS: Unleash Your Mind Power to Create Health, Wealth and Success.
    Hypnosis Learning Center
    www.dp-db.com - user reviews of digital products

    Probably single pages are still more common though, and if you type any popular clickbank product into google, like "product name review" you will see a whole bunch of decent 1 page landing pages both in the natural results and in PPC resutls.

    Hope that helps, Dan

    I prefer sites like these below for ebook promotion...they look more professional:

    The 4-Hour Workweek and Timothy Ferriss
    Rich Dad - Welcome to Rich Dad!

      Well, yes, so do I - but these are sites belonging to big corporations / publishers, selling their own self help books - in-fact, 2 of the most popular self help books of recent (/ of all?) time - as an affiliate marketer promoting other people's ebooks I think to do something like this would be a little over the top.. It would work very well of course, but in terms of time and money to do this would be very high.. perhaps useful to look at them in terms of industry leading websites and take some tips from them to re-implement in a simpler way.

    Set up your main website on a server,Eg: www.yoursite.com
    Then install wordpress on a subdomain Eg: yoursite.com/blog
    If you wanna promote several products describe the all products in main webpage and then setup separate pages for each product..Eg: yoursite.com/product1
    You can promote your blog to rss/social bookmark...etc..
    But I think the best option is to get a unique domain name for and blog for each product...It's the best and most suitable method to promote a product so far..

    Hope this helps
