As I write this … eBooks online are still going very strong, and I personally can’t see them going anywhere.
Especially when you consider the popularity of the PDF format. And even looking at the corporate market – the number of “white papers” made available in PDF format just seems to keep growing. People online really do seem to now be very used and happy with receiving text (and graphics too) in digital form, and then printing it out if they want something physical.
So when you get [easyazon-link asin=”B003YH9OF8″]Source Rights/Private Label Rights[/easyazon-link] to eBooks through this site, what exactly do you get?
For a “typical eBook”, let’s assume that it’s text and graphics, and nothing else. If there’s links to audio or anything like that,
I’m going to ignore it in this example to keep things straightforward…
So this eBook with text and graphics is called “Product X”. Here are the specs:
“Product X” is 33,745 words of text, and contains 46 individual graphics.
And those 46 individual graphics are all “screen grabs” (as opposed to illustrations). “Screen Grabs” are when you take a snapshot of the screen to demonstrate what you’re doing.
So for the Source Rights to “Product X”, here’s exactly what you get:
All the formatted text in HTML format and in also Microsoft Word format (RTF format in fact, which works very well in Word, but is slightly more portable than the usual .DOC format).
All the formatting and text is kept in place so you don’t have to redo any of that, unless you choose to of course.
And all the links are already in the formatted text, so if you want you can immediately change those to your affiliate links, as well as links back to your sites.
You also get all the 46 individual graphics in three formats:
GIF format is the smallest graphic file size generally, and is used most commonly on web pages since it loads quickly.
However, because it’s small in size, it doesn’t hold as much clarity/detail as the other graphic formats.
JPEG format (file extension: .JPG) is similar to GIF format in that it’s great for delivery over the web. It’s small, and has better color depth than GIF so is often used for displaying photos online.
Because of this increased detail, it’s usually a slightly larger file size than GIF format. However, it’s still very suitable for delivering over the web, or if you want to include it in an eBook and yet keep the eBook size down to a minimum.
(The larger the size of the graphics in an eBook, the larger the size of the actual eBook, since the graphics are “embedded” into it. When I create an eBook with lots of graphics, I try as much as possible to keep them in GIF format, otherwise the eBook starts becoming a little too large to download comfortably.)
Bitmap Format (Extension: .BMP)
This is the original format that I work with graphics. It’s very high quality and is great to start with if you want to edit the graphics or convert them to different formats (when you do graphic conversion, always try to start with the highest quality, since you often lose some quality through conversion).
This format of graphic is especially not suitable for including in an eBook or online, but if you want to start with the very highest quality of graphic, it’s a great starting point.
You also get any promotional materials made for the product, including:
eBook Cover Graphics
You can use the ready made eBook cover graphics in the sales page, inside the product itself, as promotional material, or however you wish…
And of course you can even edit them if you want. One change you may like to make immediately is change my name on the graphic to yours, for example.
eBook cover graphics are only delivered in JPEG format (generally). However, for making small changes that’s absolutely fine to work in.
You’ll find that with pretty much all of the products, you’ll get a large variety of eBook cover graphics that you can choose from.
Page Header Graphics
Now, these aren’t “promotional banners”. What they are is the eye catching and attractive headers that usually appear across the top of a sales message.
You can of course use them however you wish and even edit them of course.
It’s certainly not necessary that you include these at the top of your sales page, you may want to, you may not want to. It’s totally up to you.
And with these you’ll also get quite a few different styles to choose from.
Sales Website & Copy
If there’s ready made copy and a website for the product, you’ll get that too. And 95% of the time, you’ll get this as part of the Source Rights for the product.
You can of course change the website and copy as you like.
However, if you wish, you can just take the copy as it is right now, put it up on your website and start making sales.
Or you can just take snippets of the copy (the bullet points for example) and use that as part of your own copy.
If you’re changing the product, it would of course make sense to change the copy, but at least this gives you a good starting point and you’re not starting with a blank slate.
And it’s important to tell you that this is professionally written copy (it takes me around a week to finalize each sales letter) and they’ve all been tested in the marketplace.
So in this example – “Product X”, as you can see you get an awful [easyazon-link asin=”145652724X”]lot of Source Rights[/easyazon-link] for just this product. With Source Rights that also have audio, and maybe even software too, you can get even more.
