Automated eBay eBook Tips To Success

Aug 18, 2007
Anyone who sells information products online is at a huge advantage to any other product seller. You have no postage charges to fulfil, no headaches of outsourcing fulfilment companies and virtually non existent costs. Every eBook you sell will give you almost 100% profit per sale, and the second benefit of capturing a lead in the process to which you can sell to, over and over again.

The main benefit of selling eBooks on eBay and the internet is 100% of the process can be automated, although there is one small headache to the seller. The competition, all trying to claim their share of the $800 million annual market.

I am not suggesting that the eBook market is saturated, far from it, but you need a solid plan before you delve into the automated eBook selling business. The main thing you need to do before you start your eBook business, is to brand your name - not your websites. I knew in doing this I would become an authority figure online and not get lost in cyberspace.

Compile a business plan. Set up a process that enables you to build a customer base, and also your feedback on eBay, and your customer base will increase. As your perceived credibility grows - so too will your business.

Put in place a viral exponent in your eBook business plan, which is basically a method of self advertising, and turning your customers into salespeople for your business, thus dramatically increasing the visitors and potential customers you will receive. An affiliate programme can help with this by providing copy and paste tools, to make it as easy as possible for your customers to promote your business.

Next think about converting those potential customers into buyers, with a solid salescopy, expressing a strong headline to attract eye-balls to your product. Tell a story to empathise with the reader, and an offer or a lead capture form just before the salespage is no longer visible on the screen, to maintain the reader to your salespage. Continue with introducing the product, and expressing a call to action. Tell your customer to order your product. Introduce a scarcity factor, for example you only have 50 copies for sale or that the price will be increased in x number of hours or days.

As you grow, create your own infomation products, and again brand them to your name, this will improve your market saturation and grow your image online as an authoritative eBook seller - plus give you multiple streams of income - then simply repeat the process and watch your income explode.
