Still not using eBooks as a viral marketing tool?

Giving away Free eBooks is one of the best ways to get attention for your product, service or content web site.

Quick And Easy To Create

One reason that viral eBooks are used by Internet Marketers is that they are quick and easy to create.

One of the quickest and easiest ways to create an eBook is to compile a collection of articles you have already written and give your new eBook a title.

Another quick way to create an eBook is to get your hands on some public domain books. Because the copyright has expired, public domain books can be used to create a viral eBook on almost any topic.

You can visit some of the article distribution web sites and use articles written by others. If this method is used, you will not be able to sell the eBook, but in most cases, it can still be given away Free as a viral eBook.

You can also buy or get for free some brandable eBooks. Brandable eBooks have already been written by others but they allow you to "brand" your personal information inside the eBook. Example of a brandable eBook.

Obviously, you can create your own fresh new eBook from material you already have in your head.

One way to distribute these eBooks to is to give them away as an inducement to subscribe to your newsletter. If your eBook contains information that people might like to share with others, they will pass it on.

Large Reach

Electronic books are capable of reaching large audiences, with the only limitation being the enthusiasm of the participants. For this reason, it is necessary that your eBooks contain something that people will want to share, like timely information or humor.

Remember that people like to know something that the rest of the world needs to know. They will pass along something that makes them look like they are clued-in.

Another way to increase the enthusiasm for participants is to create your own brandable version of the eBook which allows the user to put their own links inside. When a user feels that they can make money with your eBook, they are more likely to pass it on.

Sell Related Products

Electronic books are a way to sell other products other than the one you originally targeted.

For example, if you are marketing a Stock Market Investing Course, your customers could also be interested in Stock Market Software, Offshore Banking, How To Form A Corporation, and so on.

Increase Your Reputation

Electronic books are very effective in building your reputation. You become an expert in your field if you know only a little bit more about your topic than the average person does.

Knowing just a little bit more than the average person does about your topic enables you to position yourself as an authority on the topic.

As more and more people pass along your viral eBook, your status and reputation as an authority on your particular topic increases.
