7. You can offer virtually unlimited text and graphics in describing your eBooks.
You can record your voice and give author readings from your website. Many times I
have found that the author reading was the key factor in getting the eBook sale.
8. You Can Realize A Greater Return on Investment. Even during the best of
economic times, no one eBook seller or eBook publisher will be able to reach all of the
eBook buying markets. When you offer eBook selling from your site you get instant
feedback on what is working and what is not. You can experiment with offering
"specials" that will instantly affect your bottom line sales and profits. Even though
operating your own site can be a great deal of work, you can sell a ton of eBooks and
keep a bigger chunk of each and every sale.
9. You can react quicker in the Market Place. For example, let's say a new company
called YouandI eBooks comes out with a new software program that compresses video,

program, track purchases and pay commissions by browsing to Marketingtips.com.
11. Join an existing Affiliate Program. You may want to associate with other big names
and other authors by joining sales associate and affiliate programs like Barnes &
Noble.com and Amazon.com. Visitors see major booksellers' logos and search engines on
your website and overcome their fear of ordering from you when they notice brands they
are familiar with. It appears that the bookstores are endorsing you! You can feature
authors and books that are similar to yours. If someone purchases those books and you
have an affiliation agreement set up with an Internet bookseller, you will receive a
