Writing Short E-books for Profit and for Increasing the Size of Your List

Does your business enterprise need a boost? Consider using special reports to add revenue and build a business contact list for future use.

Special reports?

A special report is an ebook that discusses one particular topic and nothing else. These mini-ebooks contain a little over 30 pages. These reports are easy to use as long as you have the know-how and familiarity with the topic. It’s an internet marketing tool that isn’t too difficult to put together. One popular subject for special reports is how-tos. These reports are extremely useful, and potential customers usually cannot resist the offer of in-depth, step-by-step help on a particular topic.

Promoting Your Special Report

There are options for marketing your special reports. If you are trying to build a business list of customers, use these special reports as a freebie when any visitor signs up to be a part of your email mailing list.

You can create a five-part course and use the first part as the free promotion. The short report can be your bait. If a prospect wants the material inside the free short report, he has no choice but to join your list to get access to that information. Companies send reports for free all the time in exchange for a newsletter sign up.

Making Money

You can use your special reports as a tool for making money rather than newsletter bait. You can sell special reports by creating a sales page. Short reports can be sold for 5-10 dollars apiece, but you can jack up the price depending on the usefulness of the report. You can offer special reports as bonuses for a main ebook.

Insider Information

If your report contains information that only very few marketers know about, so much the better. People will pay the money for any information that gives them an edge over their competitors. You can use this information as a subject of your special reports.

Tools for Touching Base With Affiliates

An affiliate program is one way to improve your business. This gives customers a way to help you make more money and also make some for them. Offer certain special reports as additional compensation for reaching a certain selling level in the affiliate program.

Special reports are handy tools you can use for any purpose. Whether you use them as freebies or bonuses, it’s up to you.

You can create nice reports using reviews too. Check out the following reviews and create some special reports:

Niche Software News

As of October 4, 2012 Fabian Lim (Keyword Research Pro) has reported that the finishing touches are being added to the new version 2.0, hopefully ready for release within days.
This new version will include a Local Keyword Effectiveness Index that will help identify suitable and effective keywords to target for local markets, and the ability to import a (CSV) list of keywords to generate Google Volume and/or Google Competition. The keyword import feature is not as trivial as it sounds, since many people acquire keyword lists from sources other than the Google Keyword Tool.
Keyword Research Pro 2.0 will operate on PCs and Macs.
