A PDF ebook we own had a disappointing sales record, despite moderately-aggressive promotion and a complete sales copy rewrite. So, I decided to try a different promotional path: a free ebook containing affiliate links. I just converted it using Activ eBook Compiler.
The current set-up is like this: the book is free and "middlemen" have the option of purchasing a rebrandable version which, in addition to the "Presented by" page, alters the ClickBank and/or Amazon links to contain the person's affiliate ID. There are 3 pricepoints -- from least to most expensive, they are: ClickBank rebranding only, Amazon only, and ClickBank and Amazon.
My question: For those of you that have tried this, is it worth the time? I mean, do you feel would I make more in the expanded distribution of a free fully-rebrandable version than I would in the less-widely distributed (but paid for) pay-for-rebranding version?
Writing that has kinda opened my eyes, and I think I know the answer ... by I'm interested in the group's opinion.
Hi, Just a thought, and I hope this doesn't come across too hard, but if I were asked to promote YOUR business through the Clickbank affiliate program, but you asked me to pay for it, I'd find another affiliate program to promote.
And, personally, the Amazon link is potentially next to worthless, given that Amazon do everything they can to minimise their affiliates' income.
