Your eBook is done so you may want to consider creating an eCourse for the product.
Why should you set up an eCourse for your eBook?
- For promotion
- As an example of your eBook content. Select several chapters or create a small study course that relates to your topic that will create interest and possibly questions about the subject.
- As a freebie. Supply information not in the ebook or let the reader know the topic is expanded on in the book.
- To build a list. You will need a list if you want to promote your eBook.
- To get more traffic to your website you have set up for ebook promotion.
What you need to set up an eCourse
- Information relating to the eBook or articles from the eBook. This information should be well presented, error free and have a look of quality.
- A form of delivery. Aweber and Get Response are two of the bigger auto responders used for newsletters and eCourses.
- The ability to create a pdf and a program to zip or make the file smaller if needed so it can be easily delivered through most email services.
- Photo images or graphics. This are not mandatory for an ecourse but they may add to the feeling of the eBook being professional and written by an expert in their field.
Cost for an eCourse
- Some sort of auto responder. There are a few free auto responders, I have never used them so I have idea what quality they offer.
- A way to create a pdf, if you need it. Open office makes pdf’s for free and they work great.
- ghost writer if you need one.
- My cost for my eCourses are just the auto responder. Any other programs I use are free. Overall an eCourse is low cost and what you gain from building a list or future sales makes an eCourse worth the time and any small cost.
An eCourse will add another dimension to your work and create a bond with the readers. There’s a possibility they will pass the information on to a friend who may be interested in your work.
ECourses are also easy to make and fun. It’s always fun to share information and make friends who share the same interests.
