Pay Yourself: Promoting Your Website!
Posted on October 20, 2000
by Sheila M. CoyleHow can you earn money by promoting your website?
Put together a short ebook, publish it for free, keep the profits for yourself while spreading the word about your business!
I am taking you through this process in three easy steps.
Before you know it your book will be out there explaining
your products to the entire world!
Your Story Behind Your Business
Your human interest story behind your business can be your biggest selling point. Everyone is interested not only in rags-to-riches stories, but what are the reasons you started your business and why did you think it would be successful? If you run a particular type of business such as web hosting, what are the steps you took to start your business?
Don't worry about eloquent phrases or fancy words. Tell your story as you would to a friend sitting next to you at your kitchen table. Write it exactly as you say it. It's the best kind of advertising for your business, not someone else's. If you are not sure of your writing abilities, have a friend or a professional writer put your story together for you. Remember, when writing there must be something that the reader takes away - inspiration, a new idea, a lead into a compelling product or a new design. Tell your story in one, two or ten pages. It's your book!
Publish Your Story For Free
Yes, for free! There are many publishing companies on the
web that will publish your book in a basic service. These
free services vary in difference, some offering
Print-On-Demand in their package, along with registering
your book through online booksellers such as Amazon.com,
Borders, and Barnes & Noble. If you want to publish POD
there may be a minimum length for instance, twenty-five
pages. Length differs, but it's worth writing a few extra
pages for the exposure it gives you and your business!
Ebooks are stored on site. That means that 24 hours of the
day millions of people clicking on "selling on the web,"
"web design," or other topics will find you explaining your
expertise and gaining a potential customer's interest.
Keep Your Profits While Spreading The Word
You are paid on a quarterly basis for the sale of your book (s). You can divide your business know-how into many short one or two page topics, charging $2.50 - $10.00 for an ebook, keeping 40-50% profits for yourself. You have ways of managing your business that would work for other people. Business topics are the number one best-selling ebooks. And if you don't think someone will pay you to learn how you started your business, all I can say is, I received my quarterly ebook/POD check today, did you?
