    ---- THREAD CLOSED 02/24/2015 ----
    (NOTE: IF THIS IS IN THE WRONG SECTION PLEASE MOVE IT AS I COULDN'T FIND A BETTER PLACE TO PUT IT!)

    Hello readers,

    I'm in this section of the forum because I just wanted to tell you guys of a new type of e-book i'm writing and I have some questions to market it and stuff.

    The topic of this book is something that has been in my family for over 200 years so my dad and uncle help me out for stuff i'm not sure about! as the title says brand new e-book, which means no other person has written a book of this kind so my book will be the only one alive on the market! (DON'T ASK WHAT IT IS BECAUSE I WON'T TELL YOU!) Now, on to the questions, so like I was gonna put it on click bank but it said something about me having to distribute the book within 24 hours so I want to know if there is a way where the book will be downloaded right after they pay so I don't have to email it to everyone which would help me a lot, my book is going to have 15,000+ words and it will be about lessons and stuff, I have around 3,400 words so far! There's also another question, I want to know where I can find the layout's that the other e-book sellers have because it looks like it will do well and I like it. Saying this is the only one of it's kind means that everyone will be forced to buy my book because it's the best and the only one saying I know what i'm talking about for this topic!

    I also need help putting security on pdf files like, so no one can copy and paste it so they can't steal it, or try to make it their own..

    Any help will be appreciated :) tell some tips and stuff all will help I don't care what it is as long as it's good or useful because i'd put it to good use :)

    Thanks in advanced,

    Skyler D...

    There's a product called digital dispatch that you can use to distribute your book.

    The program links to your paypal, and when a payment comes in for that particular product, it checks to make sure they have sent the full amount, and then it delivers the digital product to them.

    I used it for about a year, and it never gave me any troubles at all. It's been a couple since I used it, so don't really remember what I paid for it.

    PDF's Can be password protected.

    However that said, if they can hack a website, a program, etc.... They can get past adobe security!

    There is no known way you can fully protect your ebook. Once someone buys it from you, then they can easily distribute it on forums, etc. Password protection can be cracked/broken. There are applications that can convert a PDF to a Word document and then recompile it as a PDF.

    Even a hard copy book can be scanned and turned into a PDF.

    I tell you . . . Those damn pirates will stop at nothing! :D :D :D

    Cheers! - "Wiz"

    Better hurry up and get your post count up a little, and get that book on the dns list before it launches.

    Those download mods are quick! LOL



    Hey Wiz, Good to see you! :)

    hmm, thanks for the replies I need some help with like a site that doesn't require too much start up money because click bank needs like 50$ start up and 7.5% commission for each sale and they are also strict about how your site has to be you need to have programming skills or like another 50$ styart up and 25$ a month for that pitch magic thing I'm not even gonna bother with paying that but i am very interested in affiliate marketing and the idea that they do all the marketing and stuff for me i'm 14 years old it's kind of hard to bug your dad into online stuff because he doesn't believe in it he is the type that has to see it to believe it, so i'm gonna try and prove him wrong with this book and i'd like a site that doesn't need a social security number because that's a pain! my dad would flip if he heard that...

    Anyways,
    Thanks for posting

    14 is a great age to start Internet Marketing!

    You may have a misguided idea of affiliates though.
    Finding affiliates can be challenging even for sites that have a fair amount of sales material (banner's, sales copy, blog posts, emails, etc) not to mention a great product.

    If you want some advice, I'd say get yourself a .99 cent domain from Godaddy
    Put a wordpress site up on it (free) then find a theme that suits your needs (there are tons of premium themes in the download section thanks to people here like wiz & peter)

    spend some time getting the site modified to look the way you want, and then start reading everything you can about marketing and seo.

    Start promoting your site.

    The money won't come in overnight, trust me. But eventually it will start to come in, and after some time has passed and you've read more info than you know what to do with, you'll find new ways to make money online, not just through ebooks, but other ways also.

    Either way, good luck to you.

    That's great to read that you're 14 and creating your own original product from scratch.
    I can tell by your post that you are being totally diligent and really covering all the points.
    Glad to have you aboard the forum, Keep at the writing and read up on the subjects you
    need to get your ebook out. Take your time and get it right, As you said it's original work
    so it's highly unlikely that someone will beat you to the start.
    Good luck.
