Many coaches, consultants and authors want to write an ebook. They work hard on deciding on content, creating the content, getting the ebook edited and putting it all together. Once the ebook is ready, they spend more time deciding which shopping cart to use, and how to accept payment online.
After some time, they put together the ebook and the shopping cart together. Now everything is ready to accept payment and deliver the ebook to the buyers. There is just one problem – there are no buyers.
Having spent all the time and resources on writing the ebook and deciding how to sell it, many coaches, consultants and authors neglect to create a marketing plan for their e-book. As a result, they are not able to sell many ebooks. Don’t be like them, put together an online marketing plan to promote your ebook before you actually launch it.
In order to get the word out about your e-books, you need to drive qualified web traffic to your web site and to the e-books.
Here is how:
- Define your target market – who are the people you want to buy the e-books?
- Start building your newsletter list. Publish your newsletter on a regular basis to keep in touch with your subscribers and provide them with information about the e-books that you sell.
- Use online marketing techniques – search engine optimization, article marketing, your own blog, etc to drive traffic to your web site.
It will not happen overnight, but if you market effectively and consistently, you will get a lot of web site traffic and be able to sell your ebooks.
