C. Main Article: How to Pay For Your Car Using Ebooks
I probably don’t have to sell you on the benefits of ebooks:
1. There’s no inventory cost
2. There’s no cost of production
3. You can produce them relatively quickly
But can you REALLY turn ebooks into bank deposits? And if so,
I realize that even if you’ve been lurking for several months
or even years, you may not REALLY FEEL that you can turn
ebooks into bank deposits in YOUR bank account.
Sure you believe it’s possible.
Sure you believe it happens for other people.
But you lack the reality or belief it can happen FOR YOU.
Let’s break this down so it’s real FOR YOU.
I have a friend who is a Video Jackey (VJ) in Denmark. He
has an interesting skill set, so we talk sometimes over Skype.
In the summer, he works in a factory for a low hourly wage.
I explained to him recently that it’s almost nothing for
him to get $350/month selling an ebook on his special area
of know how.
Obviously, you can use multiples of the figures I’m giving
here to arrive at the size of bank deposit YOU WANT. I’m
just drawing out an illustration.
And while $350 USD per month may not sound like a lot, hey,
its a new car payment. And very little of your own personal
time is involved once it’s set up.
If he creates an ebook that sells for $35.00, all he has to
sell is 10 a month.
If he’s lucky and gets ONE PERSON with a halfway decent
list of 1,000 to 10,000 people to send an email to their
list in a month, he would likely make many multiples of that figure.
Think about it.
1. You ADD ON a checkbox upsell on the order form.
If he adds on another $20 per sale, 70% of the people
will probably take that, depending on the offer and the target audience.
That means that out of every 10 buyers, 7 spend $20.
That’s $140 divided by 10 sales. So that’s an extra $14 per buyer.
That bumps his average sale amount up to $49. Now he
only needs to sell SEVEN a month to make the $350.
What if he adds a One Time Offer (OTO) for say $100?
And 10% of the people take him up on that? That means
that out of ever 10 buyers, one snags the $100 product.
That adds another $10.00 to the value of each buyer.
So instead of his buyers being worth $49, they’re worth
$59. Now he only needs 6 sales a month to make the $350.
What if there’s a DOWNSELL for $50? So if they decide
not to buy the $100 one time offer, they are offered
a half price version of the product without the bonuses
or something else removed?
That probably takes it down to needing only 5 sales a month.
Add on 2 more OTO’s. And you’re maybe at needing 4 sales
per month, or even 3.
Obviously it all depends on your target audience and
the variables involved. But the numbers I’m presenting
here would be realistic based on my own personal
experience and what I’ve observed in the industry.
Now, what does it take to get those 5 sales a month?
If you convert 1/2% of visitors to sales, that means you
need 1,000 visitors per month.
If you convert 1%, you need 500 visitors. And so forth.
If you get one person with a decent list per month to
email their list about your product, and they have just a
modest-sized list, that alone could do the trick.
And if they have a good list, you could easily dwarf
those numbers. A really good list might bring in
$3,500 — or more.
Your “work” each month involves posting daily in a few
forums, making friends with people who have lists and
striking up a few friendships on Twitter.
You maybe need an hour a day or 30 minutes a day. Or
an hour every few days. And the smart people use
strategies where others get the affiliates for them,
so even these numbers can be reduced.
But there are a few things you MUST have to implement
1. Ability to take orders
2. Ability to have a checkbox upsell on the order form
3. Ability to do one time offers
4. Ability to set people up as affiliates and email them
5. Ability to email your list
6. Ability to deliver your PDF in a password protected area
7. Ability to put up a web page with a sales letter on it
Those are the BASICS.
Now, you CAN use Clickbank. But there ARE restrictions with
Clickbank, the main one being that THEY have the list of
affiliates not you.
So you can’t push a button and send a promo to your
Your upsells and downsells on Clickbank are going to
be limited. You won’t automatically be able to add people
to your customer list.
Anyway, you need to have SOME system in place to do
these 7 things. I discuss the options in “The Writer’s
Secret” and walk through the implementation on video
in my quickiestart.com product.
What about you?
Are you going to sit on the sidelines making up reasons
you can’t do it, won’t do it, why it won’t work for yo
or why you have to be skeptical of “the gurus?”
The MAIN thing is that you get started on the process
of trading products for dollars instead of your own personal time.
To go back to my friend who is a VJ. Here’s this guy
with know how I know people will pay for. The problem
is HE doesn’t know that yet because he doesn’t have
the experience to know it.
He thinks if he produces an ebook, maybe only one person
will buy it.
I know there’s a market for it.
Sometimes you gotta take a bit of a risk and say,
“shoot, I’m just gonna go for it.”
Granted, it’s not as easy as sitting on the sofa watching TV.
But if you just modify that and stick a laptop in your
lap while sitting there and peck away at the keyboard
for 30 minutes or an hour a day, you might be able to
create an evergreen source of bank deposits that works
for you, so you don’t have to.
What’s stopping you? What’s holding you back? I’m going
to state right here, right now that the REAL reason you’re
not doing this yet is because your socks are PURPLE.
Allow me to explain.
1. Lack of belief you can do it
This is the #1 obstacle everyone faces. Most people just
don’t believe they can pull it off. I don’t know why.
Whether or not you believe is irrelevant. What you DO
need is just to DO what needs to be done, regardless of
whether or not you believe.
2. Lack of ideas
I solve this problem in Writer’s Secret. The main thing to
know is that if you immerse yourself for a bit in a market
you WILL get ideas.
3. Lack of motivation
If you lacked motivation, you wouldn’t have read this far
in this article.
4. Lack of time
Largely, this is an excuse to NOT do. See, doing takes
risk that that has a chance of NOT returning a reward.
And it bears the risk of making mistakes, which no one
including myself likes to do.
But the point is, lack of time is largely a straw man.
Start making a list of ways you waste time every day
doing stress-relieving activities.
You’ll find out your time is being taken up by doing
activities to relieve the stress of not having the
money you want or being able to lead the life you want.
5. Not knowing how
This is NOT an issue anymore with the advent of Writer’s
Secret and my other products.
6. Lack of self confidence
7. Fear it’s too hard for you to do
Again, most of this is solved in my new VIDEO product where
we walk you through all the mechanics on video. And if you
get stuck on something, that’s why Odesk.com exists.
8. Because your SOCKS ARE PURPLE
When you’re looking for an EXCUSE one is as good as another.
