My Credit eBook is Available!

Posted by in Articles, personal finance | 7 comments

Okay, so I finished my credit eBook and am now looking for constructive criticism. My pamphlet is based on personal experience as well as sound advice that I have learned over the past few years. I’m trying to decide if I should offer my eBook for free, offer it for a nominal fee, or throw it in the recycle bin! All comments are welcome. Just remember that I am a sensitive human being. :)

P.S. I am temporarily hosting it on the adobe site for now. Once I receive feedback and figure out how I want to offer it, I will have a downloadable link from my site to my eBook.

    Hi Little House,
    Your pamphlet is informative and well written. I’m sure people will find it useful. As for how to offer it, in my own experience writing a short pamphlet on accounting:

    people don’t seem to want to pay for short eBooks. Despite 929 reads of the first page to date, only one person has actually paid $1 for the eBook to read the remaining pages. In fact I just decided to make it free.

      @Susan Tiner- Thanks for the advice. I think you’re right, I may just have to continue keeping it free of charge. Especially since it is very short. I’ll have to check out your e-book. It may help me in the future.

    You need to think differently. It’s a marketing question you are asking. Think about every company you know, from your search engine to your favorite brand canned beans. You can’t win them all.

    Look at it this way. You can use it as free content for your site here, and package it with other content later down the road to a book people can buy (with new information not available online yet naturally). If you can get 100 downloads out of 10000 visits for $5 per download, you just made $500 bucks. Revise it and take it a step further, maybe you could get 200 downloads for every 10000 hits. It’s all a marketing game. Build it and they will come.
