What does it do?
This software program
creates ebooks in a format that anyone on the internet can read and
download. You have to supply the content, but this little program takes
it from there.
you have been following my newsletters or heard me speak, you know that
I recommend selling downloadable products…specifically Ebooks. I have even suggested that you write your own. It is not as hard as it sounds.
Surely, you know about an area that others are interested in. Perhaps
you have even written a paper or lengthy article on it. Well it is time
to put that information into a saleable format.
Things I Like:
program is very simple to use. The problem with most ebook
creation software is that your ebook is created in a pdf format, which
is great because every computer can read it (even macs!) and it is also
very easy to download.
said problem because someone can download your e-book as a pdf file and
then email it to 100 of his best friends. Sure you can password protect
it, but wants your ebook resides on someone else's hard drive and they
have the password, you lose all control over YOUR ebook.
So, Ebook Generator to the rescue. Ebook
Generator converts your ebook to an html file that resides on your
server, where you maintain complete control over who views your e-book
(only paying customers through a registration system), how long they
could view it (so he doesn't give his access code to 100 of his best
friends over the next few weeks) and even whether they can print out
your ebook. Meaning, only paying customers can view this book and
because it does not download to their hard drive, they can not pass it
along…they can only print it out. You can even disable someone's
access to your e-book if you need to.
Another huge reason to
keep your ebook on your server is to make changes. Let's say you want
to change a link, or a typo or anything. Simply make the changes, as
you would any website, and viola, the changes are permanent. Since they
have to read your Ebook from the server, you do not have 50 different "revised" PDF versions of your ebook floating around!
Remember, an ebook can
be a very powerful marketing tool. It can drive folks back to your
website or recommend products you have just stumbled across this week.
But ONLY if you a way to keep your ebook current. And you can
not change your ebook in pdf form that is resting on someone else's
hard drive because they downloaded it two weeks ago!
E-book Generator makes all this a snap! I created A Father's Stew e-book in about 30 minutes. See the Father's Stew e-book in html form here. (Incidentally, I made the cool 3-D book cover with E-cover Generator) You can bet that I will be offering it on my homeschool curriculum website real soon!
all you need is a way to automatically give people access to your Ebook
when they pay for it. Meaning, one of the huge reasons people buy
Ebooks is to get the information NOW! Even if it is 2:00 AM. And the best way to do this is using 1 Shopping Cart.
So if they pay, they are immediately sent an email with a registration
code that gives them access to your Ebook. You can conceivably sell an
Ebook, take the payment and deliver the Ebook all while you are skiing
with your family in Colorado! Now that is a business idea I can get
Things I Would Change:
The greatest strength
of Ebook Generator is also its greatest weakness. People are used to
getting an ebook in pdf format. They are not used to reading an ebook
on the web and therefore you will have to educate them why it is to
their advantage to do so.
Tell them that you will
update the resources section or update the information when you stumble
across new ideas or new products. Tell them it is a "living" document
and that they have free updates for life.
This is a great way to
create an ebook if you are concerned about someone stealing your
content. I don't know of many other programs that have the "share an
ebook with your friend" problem licked like this one does. But, many
ebooks are created to share because they are actually cleverly
disguised marketing pieces for higher end products such as home study
courses, coaching classes, tele-seminars, membership sites and the like.
One thing you may
consider Ebook Generator for is a password protected web page for your
downloadable stuff like mp3's and videos. Stuff that is too large for 1
Shopping Cart to email to your customers.
