Sell Ebooks and Make Money Online To Our Best Websites

Some people are asking how to make money online by selling ebooks. Others have even found themselves researching for days, especially after changes in financial circumstances have forced them to consider alternative sources of income, without necessarily having to rely on AdSense. Is it truly possible to get this project started in less than 7 days? Where do we start?

You’ll find the step-by-step blueprint on how to create, market, and sell ebooks online in the rest of this blog post…

Before you even think about creating a web site to sell ebooks, you need to start from the very beginning. In other words, you need to know who are the people that you want to serve and why.

What Do People Want Online?

Before you go off and build that ebook-selling website, find out first what people want. Some people want more of something (i.e., how to save more time, how to have more money, how to get a loan, how to have more hair, how to get more sleep), or less of another thing (i.e., how to get rid of pain, how to remove a stain, how to lose weight).

Get a sheet of paper and write down the things that you think people want. Just quickly list them all down. After you’ve come up with a list of 50 items, that’s the time you evaluate each one.

As you go down the list, check those topics that you are interested in. Among those, check again those which you can write 30 articles about.

Eventually, you’ll have items with two check marks. Those are the topics that you will focus on. It will help if you rank those remaining items in the order of your interest and passion. Remember, you will need to write 30 articles (around 400 words each) about that topic, so it helps if your interest level is high.

I don’t quite subscribe to the notion that financial issues will force you to be interested enough to write 30 articles about any topic. Believe me, if you just force yourself to write, it will show. And your readers will quickly pick up those vibes.

Remember, we’re talking about selling ebooks online. If you are unable to connect with your readers, the chances of successfully selling the ebook and making money online will be pretty slim.

Wait… it’s not as much "connecting" with your readers as it is with helping your ready-to-buy readers go ahead with their decision to purchase the ebook online.

                                           http://www.ebookslover.com

Believe it or not, but there are lots of people who are already on the verge of buying an ebook, but are searching the web for that tipping point or final push. They’re looking for your opinion and assurance that things will be all right, and that they should go ahead and get that ebook they’ve been itching to get these past few days.

So please target those double-checked topics that you are interested in and even passionate about. If you’re interested about something, there are others who are just like you. Reach out to them.

Ebooks: Create Your Own or Resell One

If you are a fast writer, you can use free software  to produce ebooks in PDF format. If you want to be even faster, you can also resell pre-written ebooks.

In $50 Daily Challenge: 50 Dollars a Day in 14 Days, you’ll read about Jani Ghaffor’s $50 Daily Challenge. In that video series, Jani shares a number of sites where you can order pre-written ebooks.

With your list of hot topics, you simply need to visit those sites offering master resale or even ebook resell rights, and choose the ebooks that will appeal to the people you want to serve online.

You can also visit places such as Bigplanners.com and Picmoney.com to see what ebooks are being sold, and sign up as an affiliate for those products. Once again, choose products that you think your target market will buy. Go ahead and visit the ebook salespage and ask yourself if it is compelling enough to convince and motivate others to buy.

Okay… if you know whom you want to serve, and have the ebooks that they are willing and able to buy online, the next step is to create your web site.

Create Your Ebook-Selling Website

Think of a domain name (i.e., Google.com) that makes sense from the point of view of the people you want to serve online. For example, if you are targeting people who want to have more money, then a domain name which contains phrases such as "make money" or "money online" will make sense.

For example, when your target market visits a search engine and types in "how to make money online" and then they see your web site in the search engine results, do you think they will click and visit it if it looks like? Of course they would! So choose your dot com domain name.

Next, sign up for web hosting. I recommend you go for the annual webhosting package that gives you SEO WordPress webhosting

It is highly affordable, and you do not need to go for dedicated server webhosting or even virtual private servers immediately. Starting off with shared hosting is perfectly fine.

When you use that link and go for the annual package a friendly group of techies will set-up one SEO’d WordPress blog for you and make sure it is search engine friendly, so that you can attract and maximize the number of visitors coming in from the search engines.

TIP: Search engine traffic is one of the most profitable sources of traffic your site will attract.

No need to spend too much time learning about search engine optimization right now because it will be done for you by those techies. Later on, when you have more time, you can learn about SEO. In the meantime, get the SEO WordPress annual webhosting package and get started right away.

Your site will be a hybrid or combination site. A folder in your site will contain your blog, where you will post those 30 articles mentioned earlier in this blog post. This will help attract more traffic to your web site, which you can then funnel to the other folders in your site. http://www.adsenselover.com

The other folders in your site can contain the sales letters of the pre-written ebooks whose master resell rights you acquired. You can also publish your review of ebooks, include your Clickbank or Picmoney.com affiliate link, and earn affiliate commissions.

The wonderful thing about affiliate marketing is that you do not need to set-up your online payment system immediately. It’s the merchant who does that, and all you need to do as far as payments are concerned is to either have a Paypal account or a mailing address (where the checks will be sent).

In terms of speed, affiliate marketing systems will allow you to get your funds quickly. On the other hand, newbie’s have experienced that it takes quite a while before your commissions roll in, because you need to attract a considerable amount of traffic to your product review pages.

Some people do a set-and-forget approach, where they quickly build sites that review several ebooks. When they revisit their sites months down the road, they are surprised to discover that several commissions came in, even if they hadn’t updated their sites in many months.

Now some insiders have shared that various search engines are going to "ignore" thin affiliate sites. These are sites that basically contain WebPages whose sole purpose is to get readers to click on over to the merchant sites, via an affiliate referral link. If you’re planning to create a product review site using so-so articles, your site will have a difficult time ranking well in the search engines.

You don’t have to write like Hemingway, though. I’ve seen several product review sites that feature Picmoney.com ebooks, and each review article on that site contains 250 to 300 words only.

Wadsworth Develops Innovative Online Teaching Tool for Public Speaking Courses

 

Stamford, CT – October 1, 2009 – Wadsworth, part of Cengage Learning and a leading publisher of print and digital educational materials for the humanities and the behavioral and social sciences,today announced the availability of Speech Studio, a new online video upload and grading program for higher education students enrolled in public speaking courses.
Speech Studio gives students a secure and private online location to upload video files of practice speeches for convenient anytime/anywhere access by their instructor and classmates. Instructors, choosing from a library of "quick comments" or by providing their own notes, have the ability to embed comments directly into a student’s video. A time marker tool allows instructors to comment on specific points in the video while hyperlinks take the student to the precise moment in the video to which the comment is applicable. Speech Studio is currently the only product on the market with this level of functionality.
Instructors can also create courses, assignments and grade student speeches with a library of comments and grading rubrics that are consistent with National Communication Association standards. Speech Studio allows instructors to track student progress and includes an easy-to-use integrated gradebook for course management. Instructors can also export the grades for use in other learning management systems.
“Speech Studio is unlike any other speech communication tool on the market and provides easy to use benefits for both instructors and students,” said Sean Wakely, executive vice president and publisher, Cengage Learning. “Using Speech Studio, instructors can save time on course management, allowing them to focus more on the important aspects of teaching and providing valuable feedback to students. The program’s interactive functionality ensures students can easily view instructor and peer feedback to help improve their overall learning comprehension.”
Speech Studio’s flexibility lends itself to traditional classroom settings, online courses or hybrid class formats. An instructor teaching a traditional class will save valuable class time by conducting practice sessions and peer review work online, while online and hybrid course instructors, can capture, grade and review videos of live class performances and simulate an in-class experience for online courses.
For more information or to purchase Speech Studio, please visit www.cengage.com/wadsworth.

Texas Instruments introduces SmartView emulator software for TI-30XS, TI-34 MultiView scientific calculators

Teachers using scientific calculators have a new way to demonstrate concepts to their math and science classes. Today, Texas Instruments launches its first scientific calculator emulator, the TI-SmartView™ for TI-30XS and TI-34 MultiView™ scientific calculators.

 TI-SmartView emulator software, which works with white boards and overhead projectors to project an interactive representation of the TI-30XS calculator and TI-34 MultiView calculator, gives teachers the capability to enhance their math and science instruction by visually illustrating important math concepts.
 
TI-SmartView™ for TI-30XS and TI-34 scientific MultiView calculators includes unique instructional capabilities, such as showing key presses on an interactive white board, screen captures and providing an enlarged image for the visually impaired. The key press history feature enables teachers to project key images and entire sequences to the class so students can more easily follow steps and stay on track with the lesson being taught. Preloaded demonstrationsscripts allow pre-record key presses for automated playback during a lesson.
 
Teachers also can use the emulator to demonstrate the capabilities of either the TI-30XS or the TI-34 MultiView scientific calculators, which include viewing:
  • calculations in common math notation
  • up to four lines of display
  • and performing fraction computations and explorations in a familiar textbook format
  • scientific notation with the proper superscripted exponents
  • and scrolling through previous entries
 The TI-30 XS and TI-34 MultiView scientific calculators were designed with educator input for use in middle school math and science classes, including math, pre-algebra, algebra I & 2, geometry, trigonometry, statistics, general science, physics and biology.
 
The TI-SmartView for TI-30XS/TI-34 is available from instructional dealers and on TI’s website for $87.00. TI-SmartView emulator software also is available for the TI-73TM, TI-84 Plus TM Family and TI-Nspire TM lines of graphing calculators.

Texas Instruments delivers free algebra and geometry webinar series for teachers

 Texas Instruments is delivering a free, eight-webinar series for algebra and geometry teachers, through April 2010. This series will provide tools and tips for helping teachers cultivate a deeper student understanding of algebra and geometry by focusing on those concepts students struggle with the most.

 
The series is based on the Algebra Nspired and Geometry Nspired lesson resource and complements use of the TI-Nspire™ handheld and TI-Nspire computer software. The webinar series, lead by experienced math educators, will demonstrate new approaches to incorporating action/consequence teaching methods to build students’ understanding of core algebra and geometry concepts. Action/consequence lessons ask students to take action on a math object and observe the consequence to reflect on the math implications.
 
The webinar classes, hosted by Teachers Teaching with Technology™ (T3) instructors, include:
 
  • On demand – an introduction to Algebra Nspired and Geometry Nspired.
  • On demand – Algebra – Equations; Geometry – Triangles
  • Nov. 10, 2009 – Algebra – Linear Functions; Geometry – Similarity and Proportion
  • Dec. 8, 2009 – Algebra – Linear Inequalities; Geometry – Right Triangles and Trigonometry
 
**Click here for a complete list of webinars.
 
In developing Algebra Nspired and Geometry Nspired, TI pinpointed the algebra and geometry concepts students seem to have the most trouble understanding. TI then developed a content resource center to better equip new teachers, and seasoned veterans alike, with the tools they need to help students build conceptual understanding of critical math concepts.
 
The result is Algebra Nspired and Geometry Nspired, a collection of online, action/consequence lessons and tools that leverage the advanced features of TI-Nspire technology. These lessons are aligned to textbooks and to state and provincial curriculum and assessment standards. Each lesson includes teacher notes, TI-Nspire activity documents to explore math concepts and activities teachers can easily customize for their students.

Portable Sound Systems Meet Public Address Requirements




Torrance, CA. – Budget conscious schools, churches, community centers and many other organizations often require sound systems for ceremonies, training, audio-visual presentations and instructions.  There are many campus venues that are used for presentations to groups of people, and a sound system is needed for each location.

                 

A sports field, auditorium, cafeteria, amphitheater or a classroom all have increasing demands for sound equipment.  Installed speaker systems for each location maybe cost prohibitive, but one or two shared portable systems could provide a sound solution at an affordable price.

 

Summer Vyne with CCS Presentation Systems, a leading provider of audio visual equipment in Scottsdale, Arizona says, “I recommend portable sound systems for outdoor functions for schools who can only afford one sound system – one that is able to provide coverage in the media center, lunchroom or on the football field.  Many elementary schools go that route.”

 

“Sound systems are also a vital necessity in the class room.  A great deal of curriculum content is delivered via the internet and publishers of CD’s rather than books.  Sound is usually a component of the lesson plan.”

 

There are two options for class room instructional amplification – installed in ceiling speaker system or a portable sound system.  The mobile media cart with a projector, DVD player, laptop and AN-130 speaker from Anchor Audio is an economic option.  Instructors can share the media cart to further reduce school expenses.

 

Anchor Audio, based in Torrance, California, is a manufacturer of a broad line of easy-to-use, high quality, durable portable sound systems.  The company has been specializing in battery powered portable audio products for over 30 years and has developed a range of sound systems to meet virtually every need from small room requirements to larger systems for voice and music amplification in large indoor or outdoor venues.

 

“Anchor Audio has a selection of portable sound system packages for different requirements,” says Dave Johnson, Account Executive with Troxell Communications, a leading national audio/visual company and provider of public address and sound equipment.  “Anchor is awesome.  They can provide a small speaker system for a walking tour group or a large speaker system with a wireless microphone for an outdoor pep rally or an indoor theater.  The battery powered sound systems last for hours of continuous use.  You can rely on Anchor.”

 

The prohibitive cost of a permanent system comes from the cost of separate components that must be purchased and the skilled labor to install.  Portable systems are all inclusive of speaker, MP3 player, and wireless microphone.

 

“Anchor packages the portable sound systems for easy customer understanding.  They can select the system which is best for them,” adds Johnson.  “The packages also allow for expansion of an additional speaker for larger crowd applications.”

 

Portable sound systems cost less than permanent systems.  Another factor to consider is the economic advantage in ease of use.  CCS Presentation Systems’ Ms. Vyne says, “Installed systems are more complex to operate and require professional instructors.  Portable sound systems are self explanatory and have less buttons and knobs to intimidate the user.”

 

Troxell Communications’ Johnson agrees.  He says, “Portable sound systems are much more functional and easy to use.  Anyone can just turn it on get it rocking.”

 

Portable sound systems provide economical, flexible and reliable sound amplification.  With multiple sound system options to fit the requirements of many site locations, one speaker package can travel across campus for just about any size presentation.

 

For more information about audio systems try Google search for portable sound system or go directly to anchoraudio.com.

Federal researchers find lower standards in schools

A new federal study shows that nearly a third of states lowered their academic proficiency standards in recent years, a step that helps schools stay ahead of sanctions under the No Child Left Behind law, reports the New York Times. But lowering standards also confuses parents about how their children’s achievement compares with those in other states and countries–and it puts their readiness for college and competition in the workforce in jeopardy. The Education Department study, released Oct. 29, found that 15 states lowered their proficiency standards in fourth- or eighth-grade reading or math from 2005 to 2007. Three states–Maine, Oklahoma, and Wyoming–lowered standards in both subjects at both grade levels, the study said. While eight states increased the rigor of their standards in one or both subjects and grades, "overall, standards were more likely to be lower than higher" in 2007, compared with the earlier year, said Peggy G. Carr, an associate commissioner at the department…
