A year ago I thought about writing an ebook about linkbait and social media marketing. It seemed the most effective way to teach what I have learned and to do in a format that is financially rewarding. At the time I had to postpone it as clients got in the way, all wanting me to write kickass linkbait for their website.
After thinking for a long time about the ebook option, I realised it had too many flaws. Here is why I don’t like ebooks:
- Teaching is one way
- Inability of reader to ask questions
- One size fits all
- Tend not to be rewritten and so go stale
- Difficult for the writer to offer individuals specific industry
- Cannot take advantage of breaking opportunities
- Small amount of people actually read them
On that last point, I don’t know about you but I actually want people to read my stuff rather than taking the money and run. I want people to succeed, I get a real buzz from it. It’s why I love what I do.
So ebooks, unless free and addressing specific issues are out for me.
But, ask yourself, “How can I become a better linkbaiter?” I’m not going to offer an ebook, but I am going to offer an amazing service which will help you create your own killer linkbait as good as the pros.
I am going to be blogging this over the next few days as I am about to launch my linkbait coaching service to a few, selected clients.
Watch this space.
