time you write your print book. Or, solve your readers' problems using other
articles and reports already in your files. Expand a two-page article with a

Mistake 6. You don't leverage your e-Book for higher price sales.
When you look at the valuable information inside your e-Book and you realize
you only make $20 a sale, you may want to investigate putting it into an
e-Course. These courses sell for $79 and up. With just a little revising and
tweaking, you can set your book up to be a hands-on how to course.
You can bundle several lower cost e-Books and list their singular prices.
Then offer a fabulous discount to buy all three or four.
Mistake 7. You don't add bonus value to your e-Book.
Whenever you put 2-4 bonus special reports at the end of your e-Book document
in Portable Document Format, you make your offer so appealing, that many will
buy for the bonuses alone. For an e-Book on How to Write Your E-Book or Other
Book - Fast! an e-Book that sells for $24.95, the author offered these three
valuable bonuses as an incentive to buy. "Titles Sell Books" - value $4.95, 2.
"Write Like a Pro Checklist." - value $3.95, and 3. "How to Get Testimonials
from the Rich and Famous" - value $5.95. That's $15 of valuable reports added
to $24.95--Total value: $40.00 value for only $24.95.
She put a new link on her Web site "Discounts of the Month." With a limited
time offer, from her e-Promotion bi-monthly offers, she got many new buyers.
Everyone wants useful, original information. Everyone also wants a bargain.
Mistake 8. You put too many topics in your book.
Remember, best sellers focus on one main topic. Each chapter must support
that subject. When you try to give too much, your information isn't organized,
short, and compelling. Instead of the end all, be all book, concentrate on one
"how-to" and give plenty of details to make it useful to your reader.
Mistake 9. You don't market while you write.
Most writers wish someone else would do it for them. Not in this lifetime!
It's so much easier to put marketing into each chapter title, each chapter's
questions you will answer, rough draft of your e-Book's back cover (sales
letter), the One-Minute "Tell and Sell," and knowing your targeted audience,
and table of contents before you write a single chapter. Knowing these
essential "Seven Hot-Selling Points" before you finish your e-Book will have
ready to promote the second you write your last word.
Mistake 10. You don't brand yourself, your business, and your book.
Some people join an affiliate program or set up an affiliate program for
others to sell their products and sell many products. As a marketing coach, I
you to think of the overview "umbrella" you can house your products under.
Think about your biggest benefit you offer through your service. Think about
your book title. Can you put a key word from it into each chapter title? For
book, "Passion at Any Age," the author put the word passion in each chapter
title such as "Passionate Self-Care". In one client's book, "Watch Out! Your
Relationships Can Be Hazardous To Your Health." the author included the key
"watch out!" in each chapter title.
The e-Book earning curve while short is important for all writers to conquer.
It's easier when you contact a professional coach or take a teleclass to
inform yourself. Stop making e-Book mistakes so you can earn the money you
