How do I get a book online to be downloaded by a customer for free or for a fee?
Answer: The answers to free versus fee are usually different, but sometimes can be the same.
There are a few ways you can allow people to download your eBook which include:
1. They opt-in to your list and then you send them the eBook. This is the free version option. If you want to do this option for a fee then once they have paid you can send them to a spot on your site that gives them access to your eBook. Or you can have an Autoresponder send an email that has a link to the eBook in it.
Let's say you are using 1ShoppingCart to get people to purchase your product and then they go into your AutoResponse Plus program. This is the way Jim Edwards does it when he sells eBooks. He will thank people for the purchase and tell them to go to a certain location to enter their name and email address so they can get instant access to the eBook.
Basically, in the above example when the person goes to the specified site and enters their name and email address their person information goes into Jim's "EBook Buyer" Autoresponder. The Autoresponder automatically sends them the email with the link to the eBook. This is how he takes customers from 1ShoppingCart to AutoResponse Plus.
2. If you are using a program that has digital delivery then you can upload your eBook into your shopping cart. So when somebody does purchase your eBook they will be sent a link to access the eBook. The digital delivery program will also create the download page. 1ShoppingCart creates this download page for you.
If you want to make sure that customers receive your eBook then when you set your 1ShoppingCart you should set up another Autoresponder in your shopping cart and upload your eBook.
How do you get the eBook from your computer to the link location? There are two ways to do this which include:
Method 1: Take your eBook and upload it through FTP software. I use Filezilla FTP software. If you look at Filezilla it will have two sides to it. On the left hand side will be all the information on your computer. On the right hand side will be all the information on your hosting account.
You log into your hosting account. Click on "Public HTML" on the right hand side. You will find places to upload your eBook. Public HTML means that it is for public view. Once you have the "Public HMTL" folder open on the server side then take your eBook from your computer side and drag and drop it into the "Public HTML" folder.
Let's say the name of your eBook is "Ebook.pdf" and you dragged and dropped it into the Public HTML folder. Now the location for the eBook will be your domain/Ebook.pdf. Then send people to this link.
Make sure that if you make people download a pdf that they have Adobe Acrobat Reader. Provide a link to the free Adobe Acrobat Reader so they can install it if they need to in order to download and read the eBook.
Method 2: Create a landing page. This is a simple process. Just use FrontPage and create a page. You don't have to make your landing page fancy. In fact, you can just say "Here is your eBook to download. Just right click on the link below and then click "Save Target As" and it will save it to your computer so you can read it. Then you provide the link to your eBook on that landing page.
