20 Ways To Profit With Free eBooks

My habit of collecting every free eBook that I could get my hands on proved to be very profitable for me while I was building my business.

Ebooks provide a very effective way to "advertise" to thousands of prospects. And if your ebooks are attractive and offer genuine value, many of those prospects will gladly pay to view your ads by purchasing your ebooks. 

There is simply nothing that you can do to promote your website that is more effective than distributing high-quality ebooks!

Here are 20 great ways that you can use free eBooks to boost your sales and profits.

1. Build your mailing list

Free eBooks make an excellent incentive to entice people to join your list.

2. Keep your subscribers

Give away a brand new free eBook each time you mail out your newsletter or at least once a month so your readers have a reason to stay subscribed. Start a subscribers-only eBook library and keep adding new eBooks often.

3. Entice more affiliates to promote your product

Offer your free eBooks and free re-brandable eBooks as an incentive for potential affiliates to join your program.

4. Sell customization rights to your own eBooks

If you've written a quality eBook and have several affiliate links in it, you can earn more money by selling the customization rights.

5. Back-end profits

Purchase customization rights to other author's eBooks and give them away free to your mailing list. You can make a profit when they purchase something through your affiliate

6. Become an instant 'expert'

Write an eBook on a topic that you know a lot about and give it away to a target market. Once people recognize you as an expert on your particular subject area, they'll be more willing to spend their hard-earned money with you.

7. Grow your downline

Offer free eBooks as an incentive to join an affiliate program under you. Allow your downline affiliates to give away the eBooks as well so they can build their own (and your)  downline.

8. Become a leader

Train your affiliate team by giving away your free eBooks that help them learn how to build their own businesses. eBooks help you save on the cost of ordering printed copies
and shipping them to your affiliates.

9. Boost your web site traffic

Write an eBook yourself for free distribution and insert your web site links in a way that gives your readers a compelling reason to visit your site, either for the resources that you have to offer or an invitation to download even more eBooks.

10. Survey your list

Do you have a great idea for a new product or eBook, but you need to find out if there's even a market for it? Create a survey and use free eBooks to encourage people to
respond to it. To ensure a decent response to your survey, offer multiple eBooks or a tangible product that you own, or even a download of the very product that you plan to
create as a result of the survey.

11. Get viral

Give away a free eBook that others can re-brand with their own links so that they will eagerly give it away to their own mailing lists. Include your own affiliate program, traffic
exchange programs, or multi-tier affiliate programs that readers can join through your links to get the most from this strategy.

12. Get free advertising

Give away a free eBook that hasn't been circulated very much or distribute one of your own products or eBooks to ezine editors in exchange for free ad space in their ezine.

13. Get joint venture partners

Make your joint venture offer more attractive by offering your partners a valuable or unique eBook that you own outright or have the right to give away.

14. Build link popularity

Induce others to link to your web site by offering them free eBooks or one of your own products. The more links you have pointing to your web site, the higher you'll rank on the major search engines (and the more targeted traffic you'll get).

15. Promote your own products

Offer free preview versions (say, the first couple of chapters) of an eBook that you wrote in order to promote it and get lots more people to buy it from you. Combine
this with a re-brander to get a viral effect and increase the number of downloads of your preview version. If you're selling a software package, give away a free report that
explains how your software best solves your target market's biggest problem and how it will benefit them.

16. Enhance the value of your product

Give away free eBooks as bonuses along with your own product to enhance its perceived value. This works best if the bonus is related to the topic of the product you're selling.

17. Keep in touch with your customers

Send your customers free eBooks on a regular basis to show them you how much you value their business and to remind them of your products in a way they won't find

18. Solicit testimonials

Offer free eBooks or bonuses to your existing customers in exchange for testimonials that you can put up on your web site sales page.

19. Boost flagging sales

When sales are slow, create an eBook with a few discount coupons or special offers and give them away to your past customers. This is also a good strategy to boost holiday

20. Revive your old articles

Update some of your old articles or sections of your newsletter archives and compile them into an eBook to give them a new lease on life.
