As you write your ebook, make a list of resources you are using to help you through the process. Whether it is your shopping cart and data management system, yout teleseminar recording service, your ebook cover designer, or your ebook writing mentor. Be sure to sign up for the affiliate program for each one and then put that link in your ebook. Use the actual URL as well as an anchored text link. This way your ebook will bring you money over time from anyone who reads it and clicks on one of your affiliate links. When you do this throughout your ebook it will become a full time salesperson for you forever. This is called ‘viral marketing’ and will be a huge source of additional income for you, over and above what you make by selling your ebook. You will then encourage people to share your ebook with others, or at least not worry as much when they do, because you will see the revenue that is possible over time.

This is great advice Connie, it works on blogs too, search engines love keywords in anchor text. It provides a valuable link back to your site.
I discovered a viral EBook that can be branded with your own affiliate links and given away.
If you’d like to take a look, you can downlaod a copy and have your own branded version.
If you’d rather have people spread YOUR viral book, why not write a book for others to give away get an even better return for your time.
