Why the eBook is the Cornerstone of Your Content Marketing Strategy | Social Media Today | eBook Writing, Publishing & Marketing | Scoop.it

Many businesses are beginning to recognize the value of creating an eBook as part of their content marketing strategy.

 

The eBook as Lead Generator:

 

A daily challenge of any company is to figure out a way to bring in new customers in the form of leads. There are three ways eBooks can accomplish this. First and most obviously, eBooks provide both insight and information about your company and what you have to offer. This can quickly attract potential customers who are interested in the product or service described within an eBook.

 

Moreover, because it is a digital medium, prospects can download a copy and peruse the information at their leisure.

A Curated Online Personal Shop: reKiosk Opens Up a Revenue-Making Opportunity for Digital Product Curators

A Curated Online Personal Shop: reKiosk Opens Up a Revenue-Making Opportunity for Digital Product Curators | eBook Writing, Publishing & Marketing | Scoop.it

Robin Good: reKiosk is a "network of user-curated digital storefronts where anyone can sell music, books, and other digital files" both of his own production as well as works done by other independent or commercial authors.

 

reKiosk attempts to re-capture the spirit of the small, dedicated shop, where inspired store owners collect, distribute and put on sale their best work and put on sale a collection of unique findings.

 

Being able to curate a unique ebooks or music collection and being the proper host for it, here can make all the difference in the world.

 

Check this:

1) the creator always gets 70% of the sale price.

 

2) The user who makes the sale collects the distribution commission – which is often as much as 25% of the sale price.

 

Explore some existing kiosks: https://rekiosk.com/best_sellers

Digital technology has changed everything for struggling writers. A writer turned down by traditional publishers — or even avoiding them — now has a range of options.

 

Among them are self-publishing a manuscript as an e-book; self-publishing through myriad companies that print on demand, in which a paperback or hardcover book is printed each time it is purchased; and buying an array of services, from editing and design to marketing and publicity, from what are known as assisted self-publishing companies...

Companies With The Best Stories Win: 10 Key Points For Telling Your Story - Forbes

Companies With The Best Stories Win: 10 Key Points For Telling Your Story - Forbes | eBook Writing, Publishing & Marketing | Scoop.it
Winning entrepreneurs bond emotionally with employees, investors and customers--and dramatically increase their chances for funding and for long term success--when they hone their ability to tell meaningful stories about their businesses.

 

Here is an article discussing 2 examples of effective business storytelling for marketing/branding/identity purposes that really work. One is a small business (Baby Steals) and the other one is a large enterpriese (IKEA). You will notice the difference in their stories as the size of the business kicks in.

 

Pay close attention to what the founder of Baby Steals did/does -- because implicit in the example shared are story listening skills and how the stories she was hearing from customers/prospects also shaped the success of her company.

 

And then there are 10 tips for bringing storytelling into your business marketing/branding efforts. All are solid. A word of advice here -- working on several of these 10 tips takes time. The ideas you come up with during your first pass you will want to test with friends, colleagues, customers, and prospects. This is an iterative process where your focus and messaging gets sharper, clearer, and more powerful over time. So give yourself the opportunity to play. This goes no matter what size of business you have -- micro to large enteprise.

 

We are heading into the 4th quarter of the year -- what a great time to hone in on your business storytelling, laying a stronger foundation for your company in 2013.
