Affiliate Marketing Tip – Write A Free Ebook

Writing a free eBook is a great way to sell more affiliate products. The eBook can work for you in two different ways and I encourage you to use both methods in each free eBook you write.

The first way is to promote affiliate links directly in your eBook where appropriate. You can mention a product in the body of a particular chapter, review a product as part of your eBook, or add an Additional Resources section to the end of the book. The second way is to link to your content site from your eBook. You can offer additional information on the site or link to a review page. By sending your readers to your website you get the chance to expose them to additional affiliate products and have the opportunity to get them on your newsletter list. Auto Affiliate Program is a good affiliate program you can promote. Go here now for more information.

Let’s take a look at how you can get started on your first eBook. Find a topic that you are fairly knowledgeable about and come up with an overall theme for the book. What are people looking for on the particular topic? For example, parents of infants will be interested in tips and strategies to get their baby to sleep through the night. A mom looking for a work at home job may be interested in how to spot a work at home scam and where to look for legitimate jobs.

Next come up with an outline, or group some related articles you have written on a particular topic. Now all you have to do is flesh it out a little bit and of course incorporate your affiliate links. An eBook typically consists of at least 25 pages. That may sound like a lot, but you should keep your font size fairly large to make it easier to read on a computer screen.

Let’s talk about format for a moment. You can purchase software to create an eBook, or you can make it a PDF document. A  PDF documents will work on just about any computer and people are comfortable downloading them. I usually write my free eBook in Microsoft Word, format it, add pictures or graphics and then turn it into a PFD. You can either do this with Microsoft Acrobat, or use one of the free PDF creation services on the web.

Your next step will be to get the eBook circulating. You are not going to make any affiliate sale if no one reads your eBook. You can offer it as a free download on your site or give it away as a bonus for subscribing to your newsletter. I also like to add a note in the footer of each page that the reader is welcome to pass the eBook along to others who might be interested in the topic. Rapid Content Wizard is another affiliate program you can promote with links. Go and check it out now.

Offer the eBook as a free giveaway to other website owners and post it on the free eBook directories. Then sit back and watch the book do the work for you. After a few weeks you should see the affiliate sales come in.
