My idea - Could you tell me your opinion?

3 replies
Hi! I'm thinking about writing an ebook entitled 'How to Make Money Online - A Humorous Analysis of The Truth' in which I will give real lessons to my readers about how really hard it is to make money online when you know nothing about internet marketing. At the same time, I will be very ironic and make my readers' experience very pleasant. They are going to laugh. (I may change the title, this is only an idea)

Now, I'm thinking about using this ebook only as a promotional method and give it for free to all Warriors, so that they may promote my work, which is not related to internet marketing. My work is about mental health. However, I need active affiliates who will really sell my ebooks. So, my intention is to make my ebook readers desire to promote my ebooks about mental health, and make money this way.

I'm also going to promote my work in general.

What do you think about my idea? I will give everyone the right to give this ebook to anyone they may desire, as soon as they keep it as it is, only adding their own ads and links. They can give this ebook away and build their email list.

Is it a good idea? Or do you think that I'm going to waste my time, without managing to convince internet marketers to become my affiliates and promote my mental health ebooks? I have an affiliate program through Clickbank, giving 75% to my affiliates in each sale. (I don't know if I'm allowed to talk about this matter, I'm only explaining my plan).

I'm trying to find cheap ways to promote my affiliate program, and since I'm a writer, I thought that it would be easier for me to write a funny ebook, giving at the same time good information to my readers, than doing anything else.

What do you think?

    If you want affiliates for your mental health e-books -- I would have thought that people already in the mental health market are the people you need to contact.

    Trying to convert people is hard, and secondly would they even have access to suitable prospects.

    Use JV scalpel. It is a powerful technique which Lee McIntyre teaches. You will definitely attract more affiliates.

    Here is what it's all about:

    Offer them not just 50% commission, offer 1000%. The simpliest way to do that is to offer something more than just a commission.

    Potential affiliate has a blog?

    offer to write 5 guest posts and 50% commission.

    They have a membership site?

    Offer to make 5h of content and 50% commussion.

    Also, the key is not to ask for a broadcast, ask for a banner on their blog, thank you page, a message in their follow up and so on.

    You can check out JV scalpel here (free).

    This is why I’m afraid to waste my time doing what won’t have the results I really want.

    Thank you! I signed up, and I’m waiting for their free information.
