eBook writing is just one part of the process of writing and selling your eBook on the internet. Many people give away a chapter to get prospects more interested in purchasing their eBook, but I like the idea of letting people hear your voice. You can read a chapter or an excerpt of your eBook and let people have access to the recording to see if it is something that will help them solve their problem or situation.
I use two services for recording. One is Instant Teleseminar, where I hold all of my teleseminar training calls. The other is an audio recording site where I can put the audio directly on my blog or website. Give this method a try and see what works for you.
The power of the spoken word is enormous. When people hear me on one of my teleseminars they are more likely to trust me and sign up for one of my courses. The same is true with an eBook. Let your prospective readers hear you reading some of what you have written, and they will be much more likely to become a purchaser.
