Viral e-Book – If you’re looking for a great way to drive more traffic to your website, generate more leads, and increase your sales, then creating and distributing free eBooks is a great way to do it.
E-books, or electronic books, are HTML or PDF-based files that are distributed and presented in a downloadable file. This file does not require any special software installation and will open on your reader’s desktop simply by clicking on it.
Creating an e-book to use as a viral marketing tool is a smart way to increase traffic, leads, and sales!
E-books are great marketing tools.
Offering a high-quality free e-book on your website is a great way to get your visitors coming back to your website, thereby also keeping your products and services in the spotlight of your future customers. So they can buy from you as soon as you are ready.
This can be achieved by including links to more information on your website in your e-book and, in the process, providing your readers with special offers (for e-book readers).
The key to publishing an effective free ebook is choosing a topic that will be of interest to your prospective customers. Include multiple links to your website and your products or services in your e-book.
Increase the distribution of your e-book.
While giving your visitors your ebook for free to get repeat traffic is a good marketing strategy, it’s also a great strategy to allow your visitors to distribute your ebook.
If your ebook is good, here is an example of how powerful it can be:
10 of your visitors download your e-book.
These 10 visitors are giving away or distributing 3 e-books each, for a total of 30.
These 30 each give away/distribute three e-books – a total of 90
These 90 each give away/distribute three e-books, for a total of 270.
These 270 each give away/distribute three e-books – a total of 810
These 810 each give away/distribute three e-books – a total of 2430
7290 of these 2430 are giving away/distributing three e-books each.
Ensure that your e-book can be freely distributed by your readers by telling them they are free to do so.
Here’s some sample text to include in your e-book to help its distribution go viral: “This e-book may be freely distributed, used as a free bonus that you may sell, included in membership sites and packages, and used as an incentive to attract new subscribers to your publication.”
The key to using this technique effectively is to create a quality e-book that contains information that will be of interest to your prospective customers—information that will absolutely delight your readers. Information that is of value to them, that they would even pay for, and that they absolutely want to get their hands on!
Please remember that you should not write a cheap little ebook of little or no value filled with ads and expect it to be successful. Your e-book MUST look good and professional, so good in fact that your readers would buy it, to be used as a viral marketing tool!
E-books can be powerful online tools for internet marketing and are predestined for viral marketing! By creating a small, high-quality e-book of in-demand information, you can create an ongoing promotional tool that will work for you 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for years to come. Your e-book can be viewed by millions of internet users simply by gifting it.
