Your advice please

gmbunn Hi,

I've finished writing a digital photography e-book guide for beginners.

This is the first time I've written an e-book. It's advertised on my website, and I'm submitting it to payloadz. But can you give me any further help or ideas on places & ways to market my e-book?

Thanks all

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.

I really hope this can be of help.

You may wish to edit your first post, at which time I will also, if it is allowed.

gmbunn Thanks for correcting me!

PS "..present a sound product from the get go." presume you mean "product from the word go"?

gmbunn Also 'personaly' should be 'personally'. Really I was looking for marketing/sales advice.

1. Thanks for correcting me!
2. PS "..present a sound product from the get go." presume you mean "product from the word go"? Thanks
3. Also 'personaly' should be 'personally'. . .

1. My only goal is to assist.

2. Quote - Get-go is a rather new expression; it is an Americanism first recorded in the mid-1960s. In its early history, it was used primarily by black speakers, but now it is more widespread. Unquote

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.

I am forever grateful.

Storyman Hi Bradley,

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.)

EbookBillboard Hello,

One method of marketing is to submit your ebook to ebook directory sites.  Generally a search on google for 'ebook directory', 'ebook submit' etc should turn up some good websites.

Of course you are welcome to submit your ebook to our Ebook Download Chart at:


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.

Hope that gives you a few ideas - All The Best.

jbsmith Congratulations Gary, here are a few ways to market your e-book:

1. Write articles and submit them to article submission directories

2. Start your own affiliate program - here's an article that may help understand how to do that:  

3. Start your own blog - posting to a blog 3-4 times each week can generate a great deal of traffic and help Search Engine

4. Setup Google Adwords PPC campaign to drive some early traffic

Hope this helps...

Storyman Hi JbSmith,

Sound advice. You sum it pretty well.

SolomonZhang You could give one or 2 chapters of your for free. That way people will be interested more with your ebook after reading the "thriller" :D
