Quote: from gmbunn on 11:24 am on Jan. 15, 2007[br]Hi, Ive finished writing . . . This is the first time ive written an ebook. . . But can you give me an further help or ideas on places & ways to market my ebook?
Hi Gary As a consumer I'm not sure that you have, as you say, finished writing an eBook.
Here's why: In your post here you have used "Ive" and "ive" instead of "I've" or "I have", your signature link to your website is www- not www. These errors make me think that your eBook is a slap together . .
When a person does a Google search "digital photography ebook guide" this forum page may come up before your website and the consumer will after considering all things, bypass your eBook. Meaning, that no matter what you do for promotion or marketing, it will all be for not.
Personaly, I write all posts, or reply to posts, in MS word. I then do all of my necessary corrections, then copy and paste. This way even though I am not the greatest speller, I at least appear professional.
I am sorry to be sounding so harsh, but if you wish to be a success you need to present a sound product from the get go.
3. Wow Gary thank you. I rechecked my word program, only to see that it said I had a correct spelling. So I then went tohttp://www.m-w.comto see that yes you were right. Some how the incorrect spelling has been entered in to my MS word dictionary. I will need to find out how to reset to default.
Writing the ebook is the easy part. Marketing is the hard part. If your budget includes advertising you might want to consider Google's AdWords. I'd suggest you do a little research first because you can blow your budget quickly and not get the results you want.
If you are thinking more along the lines of developing a web site that ranks well in organic results, then you'll need to spend time researching SEO (search engine optimization). Be patient because it can take time to get a new site to rank well. (Avoid techniques that will result in getting you banned by the search engines.)
Another good method is start your own affiliate program. You could submit your ebook to places such as Clickbank and let other people promote your ebook for you. Find out more about this athttp://www.clickbank.com
Other methods include writing articles for ezines which would link back to your website, paid advertising in ezines and posting ads on forums such as this.
