How To Easily Publish An Ebook Without A Website

Hello again!

Today I want to share with you an incredible opportunity for you to publish your ebook or ebooklet.

As you may know, I recently published an ebook “Publish Outside The Box.”  I tried a new platform for this ebook – one that didn’t require a website – and it’s working beautifully.  In fact, I was so excited about it I decided to become an affiliate of the company – something I don’t do unless I use the product or service myself and am comfortable recommending it.

The company is called Zaxaa, and you can open an account and upload your ebook for free.  When you make a sale, Zaxaa will extract a small fee of either 2.7% or .25 cents, whichever is greater depending upon the sale price of your item.  So, it’s free to join and add your ebook, and nothing is paid until you make a sale.

And, you don’t have to stick to ebooks!  You can add other products to Zaxaa too – such as videos, mp3’s, printed books and related materials, and cd’s.

Already have a website?  You can still use Zaxaa.  Why would you want to do this?  Because you have the option of:

A)  adding affiliates with Zaxaa – a sales force to help you sell your product.  It’s an option, not a requirement.

B)  You can publish your ebook on Zaxaa’s marketplace so others can find it.  Think of it as another method for marketing your ebook.  It’s good to have as many ways to get the word out as you can!

C)  Zaxaa will send people to your website when they click on it to view it.  This gives your website more traffic – traffic that is highly interested in your products.

Sound interesting?  I thought it might!  Click here to check it out.  This is my affiliate link, and if you decide to publish on Zaxaa you can get an affiliate link too!

Let me know what you think!

To your riches!

Quick Tip: Cheap Marketing Plain And Simple

Marketing isn’t so much doing any one thing as it is a process, and part of that process is getting your customers to remember you.  There are many ways to go about this, some of which are far too expensive for a small booklet publisher’s budget.  But, there is something you can do that will be affordable, personal and maybe even bring a smile to your customers or potential customers – send them a card.

This is the season for sending cards.  Corporations and businesses of every size are sending cards to both their prospects and their customers.  There is a reason for this and it’s NOT good cheer.  It’s cheap marketing, plain and simple.

It’s not too late to send a holiday card to Mr. Bigwig at XYZ.  It will cost you very little, but it will remind him of you and your booklet(s) so that when he’s ready to place that large order he’ll remember to contact you.

To your riches,

Quick Tip: The Easy Way To Advertise Your Next Booklet To A Hot Market For Free

When you’re creating your first manuscript, you should already have your second one in mind.  This way, you can let readers know somewhere in your manuscript that for more information they can refer to your next booklet.

If your first booklet is already created and you later decide to add another booklet to your product offering, you can add the second booklet’s title to the back page or back cover of your first booklet.

Adding your second booklet’s title to a page inside your first booklet is a way to get advertising for your second title for free.  You make money on the sale of your first booklet, and you don’t have to pay anything to add your second title inside.

This is also a great way to reach a market that is hot for your next booklet.  Your first title interested them enough to get them to buy, and if they like that one chances are they will be interested in buying your next title as well.  Having that next title right in front of them when they finish the first title will grab them at the very moment they are wishing for more information.

To your riches!

Marketing Made Simple

When most booklet authors begin their booklet adventure, they get excited about the writing.  They have a message burning inside them that they can’t wait to get out.  But, after their manuscript is finished and production is complete, it quickly begins to sink in that the next step in the process is marketing – something most authors fear and would rather avoid.  But, marketing doesn’t have to be scary or difficult.

Why The Corporate Example Is A Bad One

Most people think that marketing is difficult and costs alot of money.  And, if you’re a corporate player it is and it does, but not because it has to be that way.

Most corporations pour millions of dollars into ideas that don’t work.  This is not the way you want to market your booklet.  First, because you probably don’t have the funds, and second, because marketing that doesn’t work is a waste of time.

Corporations will use top marketing companies to get their message out to the public.  But, these top marketing companies aren’t interested in getting results for the corporations who hire them.  The corporations will pay them regardless of the results of the marketing company’s efforts.

What the marketing companies are really after is accolades and awards within their industry.  This helps them to stand out as the best and get more big corporate jobs.  It’s an endless cycle that costs billions within the corporate industry, and gives very little in return.

What Marketing Is

Every time you mention your booklet to someone, you are marketing.  And, whenever someone who has purchased your booklet tells someone else about it, they are marketing for you.  All marketing really is, is telling others that your booklet is available.  It’s letting others know your product exists.

Your marketing should be a natural outpouring of your enthusiasm for your booklet.  It should be a daily process.  Marketing is more like a never ending journey, with alot of twists and turns, than it is a quick plane trip to a destination.  It is something you should be constantly and continually working on.

Keep It Simple

Marketing should never be a complicated process.  You want your marketing to be simple so that it is easy for you to do.  Anything that is too difficult or costly should not be included in your marketing methods.

Your marketing should also be effective – that is, it should result in sales for you.  If it doesn’t, you’re wasting your time and any money you do spend on your marketing efforts.  Any ineffective marketing tactics should either be re-vamped or thrown out.

Marketing should never be complicated, difficult or costly for you.  Think of all the different ways you tell people about your booklet and what you do.  That is marketing.  And, if you are passionate about your creation (and you should be), you will be a successful marketer.  Passion = sharing with others = sales.

To your riches!
