    hi guys

    I am constantly giving business advice to many people - so i thought i would write an ebook about it - but its has a twist to make it unique.

    I NEED SOME ADVICE FROM OTHER E-BOOK WRITERS SELLING ON CB?

    • What tips can you give me?
    • is it hard to "GET ACCEPTED" from CB? (currently i am an affiliate on CB, but not selling my own product)
    • How do you secure you ebook from getting posted everywhere for free?

    I don't think it's hard being there are a lot of crap products on CB. Make sure to read the rules so you don't get declined, things like "21 copies left". And it's impossible to secure an ebook, forget about it, don't waste your time.

    * The quality of your ebook doesn't affect sales - only your sales page will determine your initial sales.

    * The quality of your ebook does determine refunds - so if it's totally crap then you will get refunds up the ass. The solution is: a) jam pack your ebook full of info, basically rip everything you can on the subject and re-word it so people feel they've got a good deal; b) offer good bonuses and especially give extra bonuses that you don't mention on the tour.

    * You can password protect or watermark your ebook if you really want to. If you tell people that your ebooks are individually watermarked then that will dissuade some people from sharing it. However the type of person who will torrent or hunt around for a pirated version is not really your target customer anyway.

    If you know your stuff, I'd strongly urge you to write it yourself. The quality of the ebook will not affect sales directly (the sales page and level/quality of promotion by affiliates is what does) but having a good quality ebook will keep refunds to a minimum. A low refund rate not only means more money for you, but it will also encourage the affiliates to promote it and keep promoting it. I'm a nutritionist by profession and I've written two ebooks myself which I'm selling through clickbank. Because I actually know what I'm writing about (unlike most other health ebook writers) my ebooks really do help people, and I feel this has been crucial in keeping refunds at a virtual zero.

    With regards to getting accepted, ye it is easy actually, as long as you adhere to the guidelines. And even if you don't, you'll be asked to edit the sales page/book and not banned or whatever.

    I'm not sure what your skills are, but your sales page is crucial for getting sales. Unless you're good at it, you should get a professional copywriter to write it and a designer to design the page and ads.

    Oh, and offer 75% commission for affiliates. There are too many products on CB, and it is very difficult to get quality affiliates if you offer less than 75%.
