By now, everyone knows the importance of e-books in any online business — so there’ll be no need going through the advantages.
Thing is, now that you’ve finally written your e-book, how do you actually sell it? How do you get enough of the right people to see it and perhaps buy from you?
Hopefully this article gives you some ideas.
Section A: Marketplaces
It can be a very good idea to post your e-book on some book promotion websites and marketplaces (both free and paid). Here are some to consider:
- Bargain Booksy
- Free Booksy
- Buck Books
- TCK Publishing
- Product Hunt
- Beta List
- Mighty Deals
Section B: Paid Ads & Affiliates
When you’re ready to give your e-book sales a bit more push, I recommend doing paid ads.
- Facebook Ads
- Google Ads
- YouTube Ads
- Solo Ads
- Fiverr Book Promotion services
- Pinterest, Instagram, etc.
** All of the major social media platforms have an option for paid ads. Make your choice.
** But just in case you’re wondering — Facebook ads remain the best all round.
Section C: Content Marketing
- For the long term sales of your e-book, content marketing is the way to go.
- By consistently creating content that is relevant to your audience, you’ll attract the kind of clients you’re looking for, while repelling those that might not be a fit.
- Content helps you sell your e-book passively and without any advertising costs at all.
- It takes quite a while to build this up, so don’t expect any immediate returns on this.
