To maximize the benefits of selling an affiliate product, or your own, you need to create a short report and use it as a Giveaway to build a List. Only by capturing the names of interested readers will you be able to make the most sales.
How to Create a Short Report in 30 Minutes
Creating a short report from an eBook is quick and easy. Usually an eBook covers one subject thoroughly. It does this by revealing each of its main ideas and how to use them. In a short report you will disclose just one of these. It can be as easy as taking out one chapter and using it as List Bait on your optin page.
Even though it is always best to rewrite PLR in this case you often can get by with just providing an interesting cover and introduction to the chapter. However another way to create a short report is to do an overview of the product that you are selling. You can create this using the table of contents and by pulling a few important facts from each chapter. Short reports can be prepared very quickly this way and you can have an optin page up and working for you in just a few minutes.
What if it’s and affiliate product and you don’t have a copy?
This is done easiest if you have the product you want to sell. First, ask for one from the creator. Sometimes they will give you a review copy so that you can review it before you sell it. Often a product creator may have a short report to let you use, even better.
Selling products you don’t own and don’t have to review is not the easiest marketing method but many do just this by marketing to a list they build in the same niche. If you don’t have a list in the right niche be sure to build one as you market this new product.
How do you get information about a product you don’t own?
One good way is from the sales page. Lots of good copy there and often testimonials. Add to that any additional information that may be on the affiliates page for the product. Another place to look is in reviews done by other affiliate marketers. Some of them may have bought the product and know more about it. I like the videos also that may show you around the members area for those who will buy the product. Put all this information together and you have enough for both your report and several emails. Also you can use some online help like Advice Engine. Or Content Writing Guide.
Remember it is just a short report and once you have read about the contents of the product or ebook you can organize your thoughts into an outline. Begin to write following the outline. The above tips will allow you to write a review of a product within 30 minutes. Usually it takes longer to read the information than to write your Giveaway Report.
