Okay. We have a new e-book, our name as author, with brand new 3d book cover image with all the bells & whistles need. It’s time to extract profit out of it. But to make a profit from it we have to place our new e-book in front of as many (Internet browser’s) eye balls as we can. We need few web pages, particularly for this reason. We need to upload our e-book to a server as well. So that, our e-book could be downloaded by our clients.
First, go ahead and upload your e-book to your website. If your website is http://xyx.com then your download link will be http://YourSite.com/How-To-Build-Responsive-List.pdf[If you don’t know how to upload a file to your web hosting, please follow this video tutorial.
I use to upload all my files at Amazon S3 server. If you want to use that route, you have to make an account there.
What kind of web page we will need depends on what’s our goal here.
If we want to sell the e-book in the market places, we need to design a sales-page and a download page. We would place a 3 D picture of the book in the sales page and write some benefits of our book. Goal of a sales page is, to show what’s selling here and to entice a visitor to buy as well! It may be a long sales letter or a brief one depends on you! Every time I worked with a PLR, I used sales page with minimum text- just let them know what it is!
At the download page, we would place our e-book 3D picture with some text thanking them and the download link.
Now, if you want to collect email sign ups to build an email list by giving away your e-book for free, you’ll need a web page called opt-in page or squeeze page. In that page, you are going to announce your own words that this book is available to be downloaded free of cost in exchange of visitor’s email. Obviously, there should be a place to insert the email addresses that would be collected in a database. This email address submission form and email-data management-services are supplied by Auto-responder software companies.[I hope you know how auto-responders work. If you don’t, head over to the video to have some basic idea.
Now, get to the point. That is designing a web page. This require html coding knowledge, which is another advanced skill. I learned some basic html from free online resources in my initial days. I cannot design a complete web page with that little knowledge. But I can customize an existing web page template. Later, I used web page designing software like Dream Weaver.
They worked somehow but when I recall the amount of time and attention, they extracted, I become horrified. Completely needless!
Now I can design a stunning web page in minutes with few clicks! That gives me great advantages! Free Word Press publishing platform and some word press plugins gave me the power to design stunning looking and functional web pages with few clicks.
I will be very frank and honest with you. You do not have to learn html or any other programing language to create your web pages. It’s not worth it. Just use word press and some page creating plugging.
I use three such plugins. I use “EpicSqueeze” to create my opt in pages. It comes with complete video tutorials.
Now Epic Squeeze Plugin is a paid plugin. If you don’t want to invest money at present, there are free alternatives too:
I use two plugins to create my sales pages and download pages, depending on the situation. I use “Funnel Kit” plugin when I need a simple web page. I use “Instabuilder” plugin when I need to design more elaborate pages. Both are paid plugins. Both work fantastic. I greatly recommend. I greatly recommend because I am using both, and I am happy using both.
Well, are there other paid plugin that worth? Plenty! I used “Optimize Press 2.0” and it worked well for some extent. Now Optimize Press 3.0 is available and appreciated my many. So is “Lead Pages,” “Thrive Theme,” “Landing Page Monkey” and many more…but I haven’t used these. So recommending these will not be ethical for me!
Like I said before, you will get some extra features with a paid plugin, but if do not want to invest right now, there are plenty of free alternatives! You can get 11 different free page maker plugin in this link:
The plugins generally come with video tutorials. You can find additional tutorials at YouTube if needed.
What to write in sales and download pages? Okay here are few simple sales page and download page I use (created with Funnel Kit):
So it’s time to get to the work creating your pages. Just install word press to your site, pick a plugin, paid or free. Go through the tutorials. Make a sales page and a download page for your new e-book, “How-To-Build-Responsive-List.pdf”.
Now check your PLR folder and find a folder named “Website”. You will get 3 web files named index.html, confirm.html and thankyou.html. index.html is your sales page and thankyou.html is your download page. Confirm.html is not requires unless you want a double opt in.
Check these webpages minutely but don’t use these unless you know html and can change the design color etc. But you can use the text of the pages to your new sales and download page.
That’s all from this tutorial. Thanks being with me! But there will be an additional tutorial tomorrow. I’ll show how you how you can upload your e-book at the Warrior Plus affiliate platform, and sell it from there fixing a price.
