Affiliate programs are a proven way to make some good money. It is no surprise why so many people have jumped into affiliate marketing as an extra income source or as their main income source. One of the newest trends in affiliate marketing is the use of an affiliate ebook.
An affiliate ebook is simply an ebook that a person can insert their affiliate IDs into. Ebooks work great because people love ebooks. Most people go online in search of information. Ebooks offer information and they are often free.
An affiliate ebook is a great option, but it still must be marketed. Affiliate ebook marketing can be done in many different ways using a variety of methods. One method that people often overlook is offline marketing.
Just because a business is based on the internet does not mean that a person can not take advantage of offline marketing. Believe it or not there are still some people who do not have access to the internet or who do not go online often. These people are an untapped market and that should be taken advantage of.
Offline methods can be simple. There is no need to go spending hundreds or even thousands of dollars on marketing, though. Radio or television commercials are not required to get good results.
Some simple ideas for offline marketing could be leaving business cards around, telling others about the ebook or placing inexpensive ads in the newspaper.
The main thing about offline marketing is that it is limited and therefore should not be the only marketing method used. The internet is too big to ignore the rest of the world when marketing, but offline marketing can be effective and a great supplement to online marketing.
Affiliate ebook marketing offline may seem silly. However, it really is a good method. Most people do have internet access and they will be willing to check something out if they are told about it and it sounds interesting. Many people are simply intimidated by the internet, but if they hear about a good ebook they will likely look it up.
All it takes are a few business cards and an outgoing personality. A person can find many ways to simply leave their business card, such as, leaving it with a tip at the restaurant or leaving it in the phone book at a pay phone. There are plenty of ingenious ways to plant a business card around town to get some free advertising.
Using offline methods to advertise an affiliate ebook is something that anyone can do. It is something a person should do because there are a lot of people who may not otherwise find the ebook if they don’t.
