Going Viral With Mini E-books

Jun 6, 2008
Let us look at some of the tips on how to market your e-books using a viral system of distribution.

The first step is to upload your mini e-book onto many Bit Torrent systems. The Bit Torrent system is a protocol designed to transfer all kinds of files from one computer to another. It is markedly different from the http and the ftp systems in which the main server sends the entire file to the client, requiring a lot of bandwidth and server resources.

In the Bit Torrent system, the user downloads as well as uploads at the same time, using bandwidth more efficiently. Bit Torrent is extremely useful when the same file has to be downloaded by many users. This system will allow people from all over the world to download your mini-e-book at the same time.

Most users are under the impression that they are downloading a product free of cost for which they would otherwise have to pay. Users have a favorable opinion about free products. This additional perceived value increases the chance of users reading the mini e-book.

More people would be impressed and willing to work with you if you are offering more incentives. Also, if the product you offer is of high quality, then they are more than willing to spend money on your products. Being generous and giving more than what is expected and consistently offering the best value for money is one of the key principles of successful marketing on the Internet.

Restrict the distribution of your e-book to only a few sites for the first few weeks. This will increase the perceived value of your e-book and also create some exclusivity. If, on the contrary, you decide to distribute your e-book to as many sites as possible with the hope that some site owners will actually read it, you couldn't be more wrong - it will go straight away to the junk box. Reputed site owners have a great deal of resentment for those who consider them as trashcans. Being exclusive surely pays as it increases the perceived worth of the e-book.

Implement these few tips and effectively market yourself and your company as the experts in your chosen industry. These few tips will also drive highly targeted and committed traffic to your site. You will maximize your reputation while getting your business all over the Internet. You will also be able to effectively create your own private group of customers and affiliates.

Going viral has massive potential and is one of the great ways to explore Internet marketing.
