    For the past day I have been thinking how to make money with FREE ebooks on Amazon or Smashwords?

    Anyone can think as I have 3 self works but even though I have them at a below 3 dollar price they still have not even made a handful of sales. And the subjects of them are pretty popular, so with the free games sort of model how can we do this with ebooks?

    I dont think Amazon or SM allow affiliate links in the PDFs Epubs

    Perhaps make references to companies or sites you have an affiliation with. Though, you'd need more than a handful of sales to convince people I suspect. Maybe re-work the content or cover image.

    Don't judge a book on it's cover <-- yeh... Not True when it comes to sales. imho
