Ebook Rebranding - The New Ebook Marketing Power?
Well, it is definitely yes!
In the early day of internet marketing, giving away ebook free was a very good list-building strategy. It worked extremely well. But it is no longer the case in TODAY scenario. Giving away your ebook free is just not enough for your online business. You'll need to do something different.
The net is so saturated with the free ebook because every one is giving away their ebooks free. Some of them are poorly written and reading them is just a waste of time. Of course, I am not saying that all of them are poorly written. An exception is Rebrand Profits by Gary Hugnh. It's a very good and informative ebook you should read. It's Free.
So, to compete with so many other free ebooks out there, you'll need to do something different or come up with a new idea. People are more willing to distribute your ebook if you provide them incentives. The more benefits you provide, the faster your ebook is passed on. Remember, giving away your ebook is a very good form of free advertising.
Yah...I know but HOW?
It's definitely by way of ebook rebranding. It has been used by top internet heavyweights to get people to download and distribute their ebooks free.
In this article, I'll show you three simple ways to get people to distribute your ebook free using ebook rebranding techniques.
You need to have your own info-product, be it an ebook, a report or just a compilation of articles, tips or whatever you found on the Net. Inside the infoproduct, include links to the affiliate programs you are promoting. Be selective on the affiliate program you're promoting. Promote only affiliate programs that are relevant to your infoproduct. They must pay well, allow you to recruit subaffiliates and most important of all offer at least TWO-TIER commission pay out. This is the first and foremost thing you need to do to encourage people to rebrand your ebook. This is particularly important because this is how you will make a fortune from your free infoproduct. Here is how it works:
If Joe signs up the affiliate program in the infoproduct, you get commission for his signup. If he then distributes the infoproduct to someone else and that someone else signs up through Joe's affiliate link, both of you get paid! Can you see how powerful it is? Of course, you need to make sure that your info product is informative enough that the readers would give it away even without incentive.
Second technique is to charge people certain fees for them to rebrand your ebook. In other words, you are selling the rights to rebrand your ebook. This is particularly the case when you have no choice but to promote a single tier affiliate program. To make your offer more enticing, sell them the master rebrand rights.
Yes, I know you may be wondering why I said so. I'll quote you an example to illustrate this.
Say Joe buys the master rebrand rights and distribute your ebook to everyone he knows. Then, whoever wants to rebrand the ebook Joe gives away, he or she has to pay Joe instead of you! Sound interesting? In such way, your readers are more willing to rebrand the ebook because it earns them more profits. I would definitely love the idea of me charging the people fees instead of you.
The third technique would require you to have your own products. Don't worry if you're too busy and have no time to create one. You can buy resell rights to a product. Ebookslot.com at http://www.ebookslot.com is a good place to shop for ebooks and software products with resell rights.
You can buy a package of ebooks with resell rights and repackage it to create your own unique product. Then set up an affiliate program and write a free info-product that promotes your product. Include a message in your ebook that tell your customers you are willing to give away the rebrand rights only if they buy your product. Instead of asking your readers to BUY the rebrand rights, you actually ask them to buy your products. People will join your affiliate program if they think it's easy to promote your product and make money.
To create rebrandable EXE ebook, you can use Active Ebook Compiler which is by far the most affordable html compiler. You can also use pdf995 or pdfedit995 if you are creating rebrandable PDF ebook. Both tools are free!
So, start creating your own infoproduct with links to good affiliate programs TODAY and success is just right on your doorstep!

How to Format Your Email Newsletter
When subscribers' email readers (programs) receive your text newsletter, they will display it in all kinds of ways. Not only are there different programs, but each one has several customization options.
Your E-zine 13 - A Formatting Checklist
While sending out a text e-zine may seem like a piece of cake, there's more to it than you may think. *Good formatting* is the name of the game. Here's a handy checklist I use to make sure each of my issues is in great shape BEFORE I send it out. Please be my guest and use it for yourself! Are all lines 65 characters or less? More than that and your missive may come through looking messy to many subscribers. End each line with a hard return by pressing the "enter" key. Have you made sure there's no auto-formatting, such as bolding, italics, or underlining? These features don't translate well in e-mail and can come out looking mighty strange on the other end. Instead, emphasize words or phrases with *asterisks,* "quotation marks," or ALL CAPS ... sparingly. Are all sections neatly separated? Use underscores (_____), asterisks (******), another nifty symbol ($$$$$, %%%%, @@@@), or a combination thereof () to help define each area and help your readers skim your issue more easily. Do all Web links include 'http://' before them? Some e-mail programs won't automatically hyperlink a URL in your text without this prefix. So don't take a chance - make it easy for your readers to click and link, especially to YOUR site! Do all e-mail links include "mailto:" before them? Same idea here: Some e-mail programs won't automatically hyperlink an e-mail address in your text without it. Be sure to leave no space between the colon and the first character of the address. Is your masthead at the very top? The masthead, or "nameplate," typically features your e-zine name, your name, your e-mail address, your Web address, and the correct date, volume number, and issue number. Make it the FIRST thing your readers see. Have you reminded your readers right away that this is a *subscription* publication? Don't let them forget that they *asked* to receive this! Something like this right under your masthead will do: "You've received this e-zine because you subscribed to it! If you wish to unsubscribe, please scroll to the end for more information." If you have a table of contents (TOC), do its listings match this issue's articles and features? For example, if your TOC says your second feature in this issue is an article on Web site marketing, make sure it's right! Have you included a copyright notice? At the end of your content, before your contact info, post '(c)' immediately followed by the year and your name or your company's name. You should know that a copyright notice does not protect your ideas - instead, it protects the way you express them. Are the correct advertisements in place? Keep track of all your ad swaps and purchases in one main document to make this easy to look up each time. I use an Excel spreadsheet, which works great for me. Do you give clear subscribe and unsubscribe instructions at the bottom? Include subscribe instructions, because your e-zine will likely get passed on to others who'd like to sign up. The unsubscribe instructions are just BECAUSE - it's plain courtesy, and the law of the land. : ) Does your subject line include both the name of your e-zine and the issue topic? By seeing your e-zine title, your recipients will know the e-mail is not spam. And by seeing the issue topic, they will know what's in store for this issue. Example: "Sara's Cash Flow Tips: Increase Your Income Today!" Have you sent a test of the issue to yourself or an associate? Make sure it comes through reading well and looking great! (Check for any strange symbols that magically appear, odd breaks in the copy, inactive links, etc.) And this is a GREAT time to give it a final proofread.

Why Arent You Writing Ezine Articles?
An Embarrassment of Riches - Part I
The Internet is too rich. Even powerful and sophisticated search engines, such as Google, return a lot of trash, dead ends, and Error 404's in response to the most well-defined query, Boolean operators and all. Directories created by human editors - such as Yahoo! or the Open Directory Project - are often overwhelmed by the amount of material out there. Like the legendary blob, the Internet is clearly out of classificatory control. Some web sites - like Suite101 - have introduced the old and tried Dewey subject classification system successfully used in non-virtual libraries for more than a century.
