7 Secrets to Explode your eBook Sales! Part 2
Secret #2: Creating your Marketing Timeline for Success!
Copyright 2004 Bluedolphin Crow
You can increase your sales and free time by creating your own marketing timeline. Marketing timelines are essential for all Internet businesses. They provide not only organization but a truly well defined goal sheet as well.
To understand your timeline is to understand your business. Can you really know where you are going if you don't have a goal? I think not! Can you really tell how well you are doing if you are not logging your results? I think not again! Can you really tell what your profit margin is at this moment and will be next month at this time without tracking your sales, goals and future plans?
Well I think you know my answer by now.
There is tons of internet marketing "How To" infiramtion online. However have you noticed very few people teach you how to organize your information? Well, now you will know.
My marketing timelines include: goals present and future, Action plans for today and tomorrow as well as next month, and last but definitely not least you have a sales tracker as well.
Ok. Now take out a sheet of paper, and for computer lovers, open up your word processing program.
Let's begin with our goal sheet.
On top of the page in BIG letters type: Goal Sheet - Short Term
Now grab another piece of paper, or another page, and on the top of that one in BIG letters type: Goals - Long Term
Next page write in BIG letters: Action Steps - Short term And another page in BIG letters: Action Steps - Long term
One last page in BIG letters write: SALES
Now you have the foundation you need to begin really understanding your ebusiness as it grows and matures.
Grab a file folder, or on the computer, make a file folder that says: "Marketing Timeline." This folder will hold all your files.
Page one: Short term Goals: Make 3 columns.
Column 1: Date
Column 2: Goal
Column 3: Date completed Goal
Page two: Goals - Long Term: Make 3 columns.
Column 1: Date
Column 2: Goal
Column 3: Date Completed Goal.
Page 3: Action Plans short term: Make 3 columns.
Column 1: Date.
Column 2: Action Steps.
Column 3: Date Completed Action Steps.
Page 4: Action Plans - Long term: Make 3 columns.
Column 1: Date.
Column 2: Action Steps.
Column 3: Date Completed Action Step.
Page 5: Sales tracking - Make 3 columns:
Column 1: date
Column 2: Sales
Column 3: Continuing Total.
I can hear a lot of you out there groaning, "there must be a way to automate this!" and yes there is! However, I want you to do it manually when you first start your ebusiness. I have found that this will not only show you how you are doing and where you are and what has to be done to get to where you want to go. It also helps to seat all the information in your unconscious brain. Walla! Automating the Brain!
Really, I am serious. By doing this manually you will learn a lot more in the beginning and not have to learn it as you go along. For those of you that can't wait to automate, I have included links to a lot of automated services and software in my eBook: "eBook Marketing Secrets Revealed."
Have a great week!

Information at What Price? Exploring Fee-based e-Content
In pursuit of a paid model for content, many businesses offer newsletters for a fee or ebooks. These models offer pros and cons. Some organizations send out two newsletters: fee and free. The free version has the basic, watered-down contents found in the fee version to entice readers into wanting more and paying for it. But is it worth the time and energy to do this?
Stop Trying To Sell Your eBooks
Throughout the Internet there are many people who have written ebooks, are writing ebooks or have produced other information products such as reports. No doubt, each writer wants to sell them. And many people have problems selling their ebooks. That's because they try too hard. Here's a different approach which will change the way you see what you do.
How to Write Your First Ebook
Writing your first ebook may seem like a daunting task. But like many projects, it won't seem so bad when it's broken down into manageable chunks.

Electronic Publishing Explained
An eBook is basically a document in the form of web pages that are put together, using special software, which is released in the form of a file that can be downloaded onto your computer's hard drive. Many people may think it is no different than a web site, but there are important differences.
The Problem With E-Books
One of the most popular online ventures is selling e-books. People are hungry for information; that's why they're on the Web in the first place. And e-books are cheap to produce and distribute.
Are Ebooks Overpriced?
Who ever thought that one day books would not be written. People no longer have to go to stores and buy books anymore, they can read them online by authors who instead of paying the extra money to get published, simply put their book in a virtual form. No costs involving materials, dealers, book stores, or advertisement. It can all simply be done on the computer.
How eBooks Can Be Very Valuable

Free has a magical property of attracting even the most well to do in our society. People love to get free stuff. Using free giveaways is the best known strategy for businesses to build prospects and sales.
Book Publishing for Entrepreneurs
There was a time when it was relatively easy to get a book published. You took a great idea to an agent, the agent sold the idea to a publisher, and soon you could call yourself an author. Unfortunately the market has shifted. Unless you are a celebrity or come to the table with an eager audience of book buyers, most publishers won't even blink your way no matter how great your idea.
Ask and Ye Shall Create
How do you decide to create a new speech? A new report? A net product? Most of us have an idea, then start to work on it. It's only when we are well into the creation phase that we determine whether or not it will sell.

Writing Acknowledgements for E-Books
It is important to have an acknowledgements section in your E-Books. Having authored some 1600 articles, 3000 pages of Operations Manuals, 4 E-Books and Co-Authored a Book on Franchising, I can tell you that a properly written acknowledgement, introduction and dedication is smart diplomacy. Many authors rely on teams of researchers, writers, consultants and editors. Myself, generally I use these opportunities to thank sources used in compiling the information. It pays dividends to future projects and streamlines the process in future work as per my theories.
