One of the most powerful things you can create in your online marketing business is a short report. It informs the reader about a particular subject in a niche. It can be as short as 10 pages if you are giving it away for free. There are three ways you can use your short report:
- Give it away as a free report
- Sell it on your website
- Sell it on Amazon
The first way you can use your short report is to turn it into a free report. Even though it is a free report, you can still monetize it. You can monetize it by putting affiliate links in your report or links from your own products. These links give you the potential to make money from your free report. You can deliver a free report via your opt-in box on your website, from a widget on your website or a separate opt-in page.
I know you have heard of viral report marketing. If you produce a very informative report and encourage people to give it away, it can become viral. Make sure you include a statement in your report stating that it is okay to give your report away to others.
Sell It On Your Own Website
You can sell your short report instead of just giving it away for free. If you are going to sell it, make sure it contains great information. A paid short report should be longer than a free report. Selling a free report is a great way to start selling products if you are new to online marketing. You can use PayPal to sell your report so you do not need to worry about a shopping cart. You can sell the report right from your website or from a sales page.
Sell it on Amazon
The last way you can use your short report is to actually sell it on Amazon Kindle. Make sure you have a great eye catching cover. Even though it is not necessary, it is better to have a Table of Contents. This makes it easier to navigate through your report and makes it look more professional. Your goal is for many people as possible to buy your report as well as leave great reviews.
As you can see short reports are very versatile and can be used in many ways and you can make money with them as well.
