Creating your own ebook is not an easy task but consider creating one for free nonetheless. It may seem like an act of insane generosity at first glance but there?s a method to this madness. With the right techniques, one free ebook can help drive enormous traffic to your site. Tip #1 Be sure you are using the right keywords for your website. The keywords ?free ebooks? are among the most powerful generators of website traffic. People love to get things for free and if they find out you?re offering a free ebook in your website, they?ll definitely come and visit. Once they get there, it?s up to you to make the most out of their visit. Tip #2 Set conditions for people to comply with before you let them download your free ebook. It doesn?t mean you?re making it harder for them, but rather, you?re just maximizing on the opportunity provided by your free ebook. You may, for instance, require them to provide you with your email address before they can download the ebook. You must of course be honest with what you?d do about it. Be clear that you will only use their email address to contact them about updates on your website and that you won?t share their information with other parties. Tip #3 Establish short-term agreements with other ebook authors. You can write a review for them on your website, with the said review containing a link to their website and vice versa.

It will always be there because the signature is part of your email template! Do the same with any other systems that require use of signatures.

You want readers to remember that you have a site they can visit to without making it so obvious!
