From the Editor
Well, we got such a deal on a cruise to the Greek Isles that we couldn’t turn it down. With cruise, airfare, port taxes, government taxes, and airport transfers, we paid more than $1,000 less than the cruise alone is normally listed for. We’ll stay in Toronto an extra night before the cruise so that we can visit Stage West, our favourite dinner theatre. The shows are always good, the seating is excellent and the food is over the top *8>)

Make Your Marketing Pay Off
First you need a product or service of your own to sell. There are many types of products that you can sell on the web. Ebooks are probably the easiest. Writing an ebook is fairly straightforward if you pick a subject you know.
For hints on how to write an ebook, see back issues #142 and #102 of The Great Ideazine.
Once you have a product to sell, you need a marketing plan.
6 Ideas for Viral Marketing
Here are six ideas to help you start your viral marketing campaign:
Write an ebook that is on the same topic as your product, but that is not quite as in-depth treatment of the topic as your product.
With a marketing ebook you present your story in an effective way and include links to your web sales pages. Your ebook can become your best salesman.
First, your ebook needs to be interesting and informative. Second, it always has links back to your website and to your sales page.
Next, be sure that you have a prominent section telling readers that they are free to give your ebook away. Let them know that they can post it on their site as a free download, that they can use it as a bonus, and that they can bundle it with other products. This is the way to create viral marketing for your product or service. Remember those links back to your site contained in the ebook? Allow people to place an advertisement in your free ebook if, in exchange, they give away the ebook to their web visitors or ezine subscribers.
Last but certainly not least before you send your ebook out to the world, double check spelling and grammar and be sure that you have tested every link to verify that it goes where it is supposed to go. Obvious errors will reflect badly on you and your ebook will not be of much value to you, it could even be damaging.
Post your ebook to some of the ebook directories. Many let you post for free, or will let you post a link on their site to your ebook.
Add some freebies to your product, and you are in business. Don’t know where to get freebies?
3 Steps to Find “Freebies” to Add to Your Sales Page
Those of us who regularly shop on line are familiar with the array of free gifts, free bonuses and just plain freebies that are offered to a visitor to a website to encourage them to buy. How could you collect, select and offer free gifts, which will be valued as much as the original merchandise that is being purchased? You’ll want to put these gifts together with your ebook or other product that you are selling from your website. There are just three steps to do that very thing. They are:
Other key words I search for are freebies, free Ebooks, and free reports and then give the key word that I want the free stuff for. Like… “freebies for gardeners.”
Give your reader the best that you can offer. With the purchase of your ebook, include additional reading material and free gifts to boot. Everybody loves a bargain!
Good luck and great profits.
