    I have recently published some ebooks on line. They were published y lulu.com. I was wondering, does anybody have any tips on how i can market the books to get more sales. I have started making a website, but the website is a free one. im not so sure how much traffic it is going to get. How can optimize the book sales, and possibly get a good website going? im not too sure how well this website will do. it was from webs.com.

    You probably want to start with reading a book or two on marketing for small businesses, or perhaps go along to a local business networking group.

    If you maintain a good SEO, then you will be able to get a good traffic. In order to do that, you could follow SEO tricks. But in your case, SEO is not the only solution, just a part of it. As DrP said, you have to follow other REAL WORLD marketing tricks.

    There is a difference between real marketing/SEO and "tricks" -- just FYI.
    The "tricks" are what get you sandboxed, sued, etc.

    How many times? SEO is not the answer! You need a business strategy.

    Hi Drp,
    I am not gonna argue with you because I know you have more experience than me. But Good SEO means GOOD TRAFFIC, and good Traffic means good business. Of course, in order to sell those to the TRAFFIC, you need good business strategy.:)

    Try editing the metadata on your site so it shows up 1st when you Google. Not a lot of people use this method anymore so no guarantees on it working, but it's good to go about 75% of the time.

    Hmm! Lots of traffic doesn't necessarily mean good traffic as any business needs the correct people visiting their site. And good traffic with the correct people visiting the site doesn't necessarily mean good business either, as you'll need a good website to convert that traffic into leads, sales, etc.

    Well, if we just simply bombard people whom are asking for help with the negative. I just can't add more to that statement.

    I find nothing wrong with advising about the UpHill battle for any life battle, but.........
