    There are many ways to promote your ebook without spending a single dime, and I am glad to see some of these mentioned in the above post. However, there are a few others that I would like to mention here as well.

    One other way to promote your book is through making comments on other people’s blogs. However, what you need to remember is this. Don’t just go to a blog and put a link back to your site on there without saying something. I have personally seen many blogs where the comments weren’t anything but a link back to somebody’s site. Don’t do that!

    If you’re going to comment, the comment and make it worth while. Add real value to the author’s blog by posting comments that really do say something in return.

    After you’re finished writing the main text of your comment, then put a link back to your site. You can also write articles and post them to article sites and article directories. There are a grea number of these all over the Internet, and they’re an excellent way to get traffic to yur ebook’s site.

    I like the business card idea because it really does work. My fiance does that for her hummingbird web site and she has gotten quite a response from that effort.

    Placing flyers around town is also a great idea too, and it will draw traffic to your site because if you place the flyers in places where you know a lot of people frequent, they’ll take notice and visit your site.

    Although many marketers love to focus on the search engines for getting traffic to your site, along with those PPC, (Pay Per Click) programs, as you have seen here, there are ways to increase traffic to your site that do not cost anything, or very little to do without breaking your budget.

    So if you really want to see results, then use some of these techniques mentioned here, and you will see a huge difference in yuor business. You will see your list starting to grow, plus you will be able to make more sales too.

  4. Dustin, first chance to check back on the series in a few days. Shaping up quite nicely!

    I love it when authors give away their content like Zen Habits did awhile back. Bob Younce is doing the same thing with his Helium paper on Writing Journey. I think he’s going to charge for it eventually.


    I wonder how large an audience you need to make this work financially?
