Marketing e-books for maximum exposure and profit is something that all writers and authors want to learn about. But few continue to take on the role of promoting their own e-book. The eBook marketing tips in this article will help you go from unknown writer to bestselling eBook author!

Do you know what the difference is between unsuccessful authors struggling with the sale of just a few of their e-books and top-selling authors who have a legion of fans waiting in advance for the release of their next e-book or book?

I can tell you that it's certainly not because the best-selling authors are the only authors who have exceptional writing skills! And it's not that publisher-funded million dollar marketing campaign, either!

What is required is an "understanding" of what it takes to market your eBook and that involves these key points that you can start implementing in the next few minutes.

Research and understand your ideal customer!

By doing a little research, you'll be able to design a plan that lets people know what unique information or story they have for them about any other e-books that already exist on the market. You will also learn how much people in your target audience are willing to pay for your eBook. And you'll be able to document why your customers will buy from you and not the other author mentioned above or below you at the online ebook store.

I will continually emphasize the key point where you should target your prospects. The more successful you are at identifying your target audience, the more successful your online e-book marketing campaign will be.

Build your "Brand" and "Author Platform" that will appeal to an established loyal audience that will buy for you!

People will buy your eBook for you! They will feel safe knowing that they are getting good value for money based on previous experiences. Even if it's about meeting you from your blog, reading sample chapters, or watching e-book trailers you've created and posted on YouTube.

As an author, you will quickly discover that without an established audience that knows, likes, or trusts you, you will have a hard time making every sale. To build this audience that trusts you enough to buy your eBook, you will need to follow the strategies and techniques found in this eBook.

Have a way to connect with your list of loyal fans who want to know when you launch your eBook!

This can be done in many ways. The most widely used way to communicate with your fans is through the use of social media. You can instantly communicate via Twitter, Facebook, or your email list.

You can also do it through your own blog, RSS feeds, press releases sent directly to your fan list or through your author page.

Implement a proven e-book marketing plan that takes your prospect from contemplation to customer purchase!

The first two steps of researching and designing your market strategy are providing you with the information you need to reach your target market. Now is the time for action. Now you must use our proven techniques documented here to reach your ideal customer and have no choice but to take out your wallet or purse and buy your e-book.
