Make Money Selling eBooks

Technological advances have allowed for people to do even more reading on the go by the use of eBooks. These kinds of books are purchased on the internet and are read on the computer or on some form of eReader. As eReader devices such as the Amazon Kindle and the Nook become more and more popular, people are beginning to purchase their books online rather than in a bookstore. Instead of having a bookshelf of books, people can now keep hundreds of books on one device. Authors are aware of this growing demand for eBooks and are releasing eBook forms of their novels. If you are interested in making money selling eBooks, here are a few options to choose from.

Make money online by building customer relationships

You’re in the online money making business or you want to be. Is that right? Well, then you should know that you’re not only in a sales business. You are also in the trust and loyalty business. It is very important to pay attention to your customers’ needs. Making money online might be your priority, but to get there you need the people who buy your service or product to trust you. Building lasting customer relationships should be your number one priority. As an online marketer you must shift your attention from closing sales immediately to engaging your customers in relationships that eliminate as many third parties and intermediaries as you possibly can.When I speak of this shift, I speak of plain and simple economics: In the last century it cost almost a fortune to reach customers via the media or traditional mail. However, now we have e-mail communication at our disposal, which is really cheap. Online marketers can now afford to keep in touch with their treasured customers much easier than ever before. Good and lasting customer relationships mean more online money for you. Read more


A Blow Against Duplicate Content Opens Up New Opportunities

Google Inc. made yet another step in crushing duplicate content websites. As part of E-marketing strategies, many online businesses would publish their content to sits like Ezinearticle, Goarticles, and other “online magazine” pages in an attempt to build up their organic page rankings through backlinks.

Google’s Feb 24 Changes And Blog Advertising

The February 24th change to Google’s search algorithm dropped the article directory sites that many website owners relied on to promote their content right out of most search engine results. Unfortunately, this caused many good websites relying on backlinks from article directories for promotion to suffer rank drops as well. Website owners who need search engines to send traffic to what they offer still have to get backlinks, but article directories are no longer the best place to start.

Why Contextual Backlinks Are Important

When you get links that point to your website, you have two options that will yield different levels of results. The first choice involves a stand alone link that simply points to your site with the site’s title or address listed as the name in a list or directory style area. These links can help your site a little bit, but they do not really tell a search engine your site is important. The better option for backlinks is setting a link somewhere inside a relevant blog post or review that is about something directly related to the subject or niche your website occupies. Read more

The Farmer Update and the Fall of Article Directories

Google, the most popular and most widely used search engine, gives users search results based off of an algorithm called PageRank. All else being equal, sites with a higher PageRank will perform better in the search engine results than sites with a lower one, so it’s obviously in your best interest to know how to increase the PageRank of your sites. One of the most popular and effective ways of improving the PageRank of a site is to point one-way links at it from other websites. This process is called link-building, and is an unavoidable necessity of modern search engine optimization.Recently, Google made a set of changes to the search algorithm that has been referred to as the “Farmer Update” by those in the industry. This update lowered the PageRank of many popular article directories like EzineArticles, GoArticles, and ArticlesBase. The Farmer Update jolted the Internet marketing industry because so many people were relying on these article directories for link-building. Now, hundreds of thousands of these links are worth much less than they were before Google changed the algorithm, and people are still trying to recover their losses. Read more
