How to Start an Online Business E-book

Mar 15, 2008
Many people want to learn how to start an online business with e-books because it doesn't require stocking inventory or shipping orders. It's one of the easiest ways to get started online.

If you are considering an online business by selling e-books, let me share a way to keep your customers paying you every month after they buy your e-book.

Using "forced continuity", you can develop a list of customers who will pay you each month. Once a customer buys your e-book, offer them a free membership to your club (a $20 value, perhaps). Club members enjoy privileges like free reports, videos, and more. At the end of the 30 day trial period, your customer will be billed in advance for the following month. This continues for as long as they wish to subscribe.

To summarize, you will get $37 for your e-book, plus another $40 for two months of membership dues. The best case scenario is you keep them happy and they stay with you forever and ever and ever. So that $37 e-book sale may have become $300 in membership sales - just because they stayed with you in your membership club.

If asked, most customers are reluctant to join clubs. However, they just can't resist a free trial. Tell them that the 30 day trial is free, and their card will be charged afterwards. They have 30 days to enjoy all the valuable benefits that you can offer them. Some will cancel, but many will stay with you for a long period.

Using forced continuity can make selling your e-book a much easier task. You sell only one e-book, yet you continue to collect payments each month. By learning how to start an online business with e-books, you can take your business to greater success.
