    Here is a new method that I have been making bank from, to those that implement, great, to those that do nothing remember... if you always do, what you always did, you will always get, what you always got. :D

    This method is all about classifieds, yahoo groups which have a book swapping/giveaway section.

    1. First step is to find a CPA offer, be it finance/dating/cooking/business
    2. We then go and do some reasearch on amazon for books related to these... the more popular/expensive the better.
    3. We'll post some ad's with the books that we've found from amazon
    I.E.
    We'll then collect the email responses and email a reply saying sorry that we've already given all the books away, however this is where it gets interesting as there are two methods you can use here.

    Method #1
    ----------
    The Ebook bonus - write your own basic ebook or use an Private Label Rights ebook, brand it with links to the CPA offer related to your free books. So if you've got nutrition books to give away, use supplement offers and explain how they work in the ebook... Oh and BTW the reader can get free trials here for just S&H as a bonus for reading the book

    Email back with something like
    Method #2
    ----------
    The Summary - If people can get the information from the book, without having to do the reading they'll love you. Simply just summerise the content and throw your offer into it.... for nutrition
    EXTENSION: Create a simple webpage with pic of the book, and a letter from the "author" telling them about the special offer they've got just for buying the book :D

    Obviously this can be twisted, i've picked nutrition as its a market that I do not use and the emails are written fast just to demonstrate the method. Obviously putting your own twist on this will bring you big rewards!

    Not bad, I might give this a try myself. In your experience what sort of percentage of responses are "hey thanks" vs people who sniff something fishy?

    I don't read responses, I pay attention to clicks/conversions which balances pretty nicely as you can lazer target it depending on the offer/books you choose
