By: James Bradley

In today's ever changing online markets, viral marketing has become an extremely powerful way to promote and profit from your own, or any other, affiliate program. By providing your visitors or clients with free e-books, you can literally create an entire network of dedicated people who promote your business for free. There are some things to keep in mind to ensure that your e-book is optimized to earn you the most revenue.

First of all, you want your ebook to provide valuable content to its readers. Give them something that they can find useful, and odds are they will turn around and promote it to others who they feel could find the information useful as well. If you were to simply give users free e-books filled with sales pitches they would simply drag the file to the recycle bin and forget about it forever. By providing useful information to your readers you are not building your own credibility, but also captivating the readers interest. Impress your audience and they will be more likely to look into other products or services you are offering.

Creating your e-book is actually far simpler than you may think. There is no need for hundreds of pages you type all night long at your computer screen, in fact you can create a quality ebook in as little as 10-20 pages. Put some related articles, add some comments or tips, an intro and a conclusion.

There is a lot of free information out there on the web, take a few minutes and use the information age to your advantage. If you see a lot of questions or articles on a particular topic, you can very easily create a quality e-book using the materials and resources you've got.

When designing your ebook there are a few options open to you. The files can be in the ".pdf" or ".exe" format, both have positives and negatives, PDF files are the most commonly used. Keep your layout clean and simple to follow. Moreover, the key to making your ebook a real success is including affiliate links and links to other companies or products you are promoting.

Inputting links from your own company and affiliate programs is where you are going to directly profit from providing your free ebook to others. Include relevant links to other products, other information sources, etc. Encourage your readers to pass the ebook along to others as a gift or as a bonus to one of their own websites/newsletters. The more your ebook gets around, the more exposure you'll receive, and ultimately the more revenue you'll generate.

You can create a viral e-book as well. This is such a popular method because you are allowing your readers to actually change some of the links to their own products and affiliate programs. This gives your audience huge added incentives to get your ebook out to as many others as they can. The trick is only allowing certain links to be changed and branding some of your own links permanently into the text to ensure that you are always getting exposure.

Now that you have designed your ebook, created the content, and filled it with important links; you must promote the ebook and get people reading it. There are so many ways to promote products and websites, and considering this is a Free ebook you are at an advantage. You could include the ebook or a link to your site in a newsletter, or in the signature of forum/article/blog posts, a webpage that is optimized, and so on. If you get positive feedback, ask permission to include that readers testimonial in your webpage or newsletter. Promoting is really going to come down to you, this is by no means a complete list, be creative.

It's clear to most internet users that anyone can profit from their own ebook. Think of how many offers on the web you have seen selling them on any topic for $10, $50, $100, even $200? By providing a free ebook to your audience you can profit in so many ways residually. You have nothing to loose by offering a free ebook and so much to gain.
