How do I add ebooks etc to my blog to give away??

11 replies
Hi Everyone

I have been digging around but cannot seem to find an answer to my question.

1) Okay I have my blog

2) I have written a bit of content.

3) I have driven a little traffic to my blog.

Its not a great blog but its a start,I have not thought about keywords or given much useful information out on it yet.

My aim is to tell my story, make money and show others how to do it.

Now I want to give away information products that I am allowed to give for free so I can build a list.

I am not really understanding what I have to do but have been advised to get Awber is that correct?

Then once I have Awber how do I put my Ebook or report page on my blog that I want to give away?

Once I understand this I can move on and start learning more about traffic generation, and then maybe get my own products up there to give away.

Please note I do need simple instructions I am not technical at all thats probably why I never made any money.

cheers

Marcus

    To add ebooks to your blog just upload them to your hosting account, then create a post with the hyperlink to the ebook.

    For example, your ebook is called "myebook.zip", just create a folder on your domain called "ebooks", then upload all your ebooks there.

    Then when you make a post create a hyperlink to the file you uploaded, get my free ebook here, with "here" being the url of your "myebook.zip"

    Aweber is a mailing list manager, its great for capturing email leads and building a list.

      If you have a blogger blog I don't believe there is a way to upload files to your blog. But Aweber allows you to attach a file to a message that you send to your subscribers. Convert your ebook to a pdf file. And then attach the file to the first follow up message you send your subscribers after they've confirmed their subscription.

    First, upload your ebook to your account at hostgator (use your CPanel, go to File Manager, then find the public_html folder and click on it. Look for the "Upload File" link.. then browse for your ebook on your computer and upload it).

    Next, if you have Wordpress installed on your own webhost account, then get Aweber, and set up a webform (instructions are there at Aweber).... that will generate the code for a subscription form.

    Then, log into your Wordpress Dashboard and add a Text Widget to your site...insert the Aweber code into the text widget...

    In your autoresponder emails, you'll include the link to your ebook (yourdomainname.com/yourebook.pdf) and they can then download it from there....

    Hope that helps,
    Robin

        Marcus,
        If you want to develop a list, you simply must have an autoresponder..... Well, not so much for developing the list, but for doing something with it..<laugh>

        If you just want to give out a free report, then just put the link in your post, as someone mentioned above...



        Best,
        Robin

          Alright Robin

          Well it will be reports and ebooks,stuff that I can give out free that I can help people with.
          Awber seems to be the way forward then.
