Jun 17, 2008

Rebrand a Viral eBook

Set up a Forum
A popular forum will get great search engine rankings and will attract many people in your niche to ask questions, comment and review products. Forums are a powerful viral marketing medium.

Use Facebook
Facebook has grown into a mega social network with over 70 million users. If you can tap into just a tiny percentage of these users then you have hit a
goldmine. Methods of marketing on Facebook include creating free applications, games and creating Groups with information about your website.

Create Templates
Creating free website and blog templates with your website link in the footer is an easy way to virally market your site. Most people will leave the footer intact, instantly giving you backlinks and ecognition.

Create a Video
Posting a video to YouTube can bring in millions of viewers and visitors. You can post some subtle marketing messages, some tutorials or any other
content you believe your readers would be interested in. Make sure you include a link to your site in the video.

Write an eBook
Writing your own ebook (or paying someone to write it) is an instant way to gain credibility. You can give it away for free, thus creating a completely
viral stream as more and more people pass the book on to friends. You can include some one time offers of upsells in the free ebook.

Write some Articles
You can write articles and give them to webmasters within your niche to publish on their sites. As long as you have a link back to your site, you'll always receive credit for the articles.

Use Social Bookmarking Sites
Sites like Stumbleupon, Digg, Technorati, Twitter, Myspace and others give you the chance to create a brand, give away free ebooks and generally provide people with a way to talk about your site. This is powerful word of mouth marketing.
