Why Should A Journalist Use Clickbank.com?
On my on going journey from a traditional printed book publisher to an online ebook publisher.
Can you now see the power of online book publishing? I really hope I have encouraged a few of you to branch out from your thinking that getting “published” the old fashioned way is hurting your writing skills and creative thoughts.
Have you ever been told by a publisher to change something that you wrote? Have you ever been turned down by a publisher? Have you ever been told that you are a “nobody” and need to get some writing under your belt first before you can be a “published author” with their company? Heck ya, happens to all of us.
With online Ebook publishing you are the editor in chief, the production department, the publisher and distributor to your work…..all of it. You are in total control of what you write, what your content is about, all edits and corrections, the whole enchilada my friend.
Do you read books from a Kindle, or an Apple Ipad? Heck do you still take the morning paper…tell me you don’t please.
Things are moving (or have moved) to an online platform and now is the time for you do start thinking that way.
One website which I really think is a huge creative commons potential for ANY wanna be book publisher or author is Clickbank.com
Clickbank is really ahead of it’s time a little bit in my opinion. They allow just about anyone to become an online author almost instantly. You just need to open an account, costs about $50, upload your digitized material (can be in a very simple PDF format) and go through a short review process.
Once your works and website has been approved you will get a “hoplink” which will enable you to use their merchant account to sell your materials. You don’t need any form of money collection on your end, they handle all sales and refunds etc. Once an order has been placed, they will collect the funds from the visitor and re-direct them to the download page. You basically do nothing…wow. Clickbank will then send you a payment every 2 weeks.
Can it be any easier than that? So what are you waiting for? Get your ebooks up and on the web today! Be creative, think outside the box and remember you are in total control of your work.
