What's so great about an ebook?
Ebooks. You've heard about them, seen them and probably downloaded them.
So, what's so great about an ebook?
You can quickly, visually and inexpensively establish thought-leadership with an ebook that provides relevant information on the toughest challenges your customers face.
By answering your customer’s questions before they think to ask – by understanding problems and the issues your customers’ face from their perspective (not your own) – you build trust. Trust = engagement; engagement = business.
A free ebook sets you up as an expert leader in your field, as well as being a wonderful incentive to entice your prospects to engage with you.
If you are providing useful, relevant information to your customers, they will automatically think of you when they need particular services. By providing information, I don’t mean telling them how wonderful you are, or how fabulous your new premises are. I mean relevant information that solves a customers problem, answers a question or makes their life easier for them.
Ebooks are easy to pass along from one prospect to another, giving you potentially infinite reach.
A free ebook, with valuable information is always welcome. Yes, your competitors may download your ebook and use it for their own game. Bully for them. It has YOUR branding and YOUR business will be the one to benefit. Would you trust someone who nicked someone else’s ebook?
Finally, obey the golden rule and provide relevant and useful information, true to the concept of content marketing. Resist from broadcasting how fabulous you are – rather focus on helping your customer.
