Am I selling my ebook the "right way?"

letsjumpnow Hi all! I'm putting my first ebook out (iubguide.com) – last week I wrote and designed the book, designed the website and put it up via GoDaddy, and got a month of file protection with Virtual Vault. It’s pretty much ready to go, but at this point I’m stumped as to what to do.

Am I right in that it seems like the best and cheapest way to do this is as follows: Buyer sees AdSense ad, comes to my site, clicks link at my site to buy, link sends them to Google Checkout, they pay with credit card or Paypal. Then, here’s where I think I get confused: does a link at Google checkout automatically send them to where they download the file after they pay (presumably Tradebit), and then virtual vault sends them the protected file?

I want to make sure I’m not leaving anything out and that all my assumptions are lined up.

Thanks in advance for any wisdom or experience!

wockkelly If a prospect doesn’t have emotional buy-in for the stuff they’re being pitched, they’ll never agree, make the deal or sign on the dotted line.

htd web marketing To answer your question, something is going to have to handle the download of your ebook.

If you are hosting the ebook on your site you can use something like DLGuard. I use this software hiding my ebook in a directory below the website directory.

Or you could take a chance on no-one finding your ebook for free by placing it in a directory above the web directory and sending the purchaser a link to this address. This is risky as googles bot may find it and then people could jsut download your book for free (off of a google search).

DL guard is a database solution so will also keep a record of who bought your ebook.
