Hi All,

 

I know this can be done, and I may be overlooking the obvious but hoping the brains trust can help....

 

I have an e-book that I plan on giving away for free.

 

It is completely rebrandable so people can rebrand it with their name, brand and affiliate links with one click and they get to download their own copy with their branding.

 

But how do people share their own copy?

 

This hurdle has tripped me up at the finishing line! 

 

I can obviously host my core original copy and send people to a landing page to down load it, but I want people to be able to copy an auto responder campaign with pages etc built in and only have to go in and swap out the core copy (or their sponsors copy) of the ebook with their own rebranded copy.

 

I don't want my readers to have to host their own file for people to download but rather be able to simply share the file.

 

Does anyone know of any products that allow/ support this functionality or does anyone have any nifty solutions that might suit my needs?

 

If I haven't explained myself properly but you think you might have a solution feel free to respond to this post or private message me!!

 

Cheers

Nate

Ok, so I was frustrated last night trying to resolve this but this morning have come to a few solutions.

 

The obvious one is to host it on my domain - but the problem with this is that the whole point is to allow anyone to rebrand a copy and give away their own version and forcing people to host their own copy makes things too complicated for a lot of people who want something "turnkey". I could host it for everyone but this adds a lot of time and effort on my part which again defeats the purpose somewhat.

 

So, currently looking in to various free file sharing options - which are usually ad supported from what I can find.

 

Will post my final solution once done just in case anyone else comes across this and is stuck with a similar problem.

I am not an expert in this field, like you, I look for solutions. I have used Google docs to give away free content. the problem with that is I do not know when someone downloads a copy. I have tried it with a link tracker and I have tried it with a Paypal button but people wear the best trainers available. haha.

Web submission has a 10-way offer. they give you some resources. Can you imagine what happens when 10's of thousands of people post to the same place?

Good for a while yes, but it is a brand killer.

One good thing in your favour, if no one else is doing it, the internet is your oyster. A good thought but I had to come back to the drawing table as the passers by,

were more abundant than expected.

As you did in your second reply, you will review and better will come before you. You will find a better way that you will be happy with.

I have used google docs before to share team lists and hit counts etc, but for sharing a doc I want more control and also the ability for a customer/ user to rebrand and then have their own copy to give away too (that will be different to my copy).

 

Learning every day!

I have used eBooks with give-away rights that include an attractive sales page to get people to download them, then put them in a zip archive with a file I created with a title like SpecialBonus and use that to detail my own pitch. Picking a give-away with more drawing power and piggy-backing my message with is simple to do with free tools and use Windows to package them together in an archive (zip) file for free.

 

I have had budget hosting ($1 a month) for many years just to get people set up to do this at https://oldbuddy.angryhosting.com

Thanks, I have bookmarked the site, I have a solution for now that is sufficient for a single project but I plan on more and more so will come back to this hosting option as I grow and the current option I have becomes too expensive for me or my members.

 

Cheers

I use Sqribble.  You can make beautiful e-books of your own with just a few clicks of the mouse. Fully Automated or you can write your own ebooks.

It is cloud-based so there is no software to download.  Really easy to use.

I have used sqribble in the past for my own books but at the time there was no ability for a reader or customer of mine to rebrand the book as their own.

for the autoresponder in which it allows you to copy their series of autoresponder you may use trafficwave's system.

for the system of delivery, rebranding and hosting of the ebook try Darren's instant traffic secret.

Hey Nate, are talking about some rebranding software that allows your customers to rebrand and then download.  I have obviously joined several sites that have that option but don't know anything about the software.  I also use sqribble and like it a lot.  Haven't used it recently since last update.  I believe you can share from the site.  I will check it out.  I use Google drive, dropbox and Microsoft One Drive to store Ebooks and sales/squeeze pages.  Also I just signed up for a free account and a cloud based storage called OpenDrive.com.  It really looks good.  But I really don't know much about rebranding except manually with Komposer.

Hi Donnie,

 

Thanks for the tips!

 

Yes, I was talking about software to allow my readers/ customers to rebrand and then download their own copy with their branding and affiliate links throughout their copy.

 

I found a solution that is hosted on within my members area which is working well almost 2 weeks in.

 

Thanks

Nate

Hi Nate,

 

I have downloaded and read the eBook.

 

Very good read. I found that using the hosting

provided by AIOP I was able to host my copy

using the very tools AIOP offers ;-)

 

Thanks,

How much is the membership for AIOP. I looked at it once but was involved in some other stuff. And do you have to use their autoresponder or can you download you leads and upload elsewhere.


I guess what I am asking is a membership with AIOP required to download your Ebook. I'll get this all together eventually. :)

Hi Donnie,

 

AIOP is $11.50 a month.

 

If you rebranded the book, you would want to have an

AIOP account, but an account is not necessary to download.  :D  

 

There is a link to the ebook on my profile page, if you want 

to take a look.

 

All the best,

Ted

Brilliant!!

 

Great to hear Ted,

 

I may need to pick your brain on that one as I tried to get that set up but ran out of time and went for a solution I could easily explain to a new member.

 

Really cool to see people expanding on what I had and coming up with your own solution!

 

Cheers

Nate

Hi Donnie,

 

Ted's response is spot on! He beat me to it while I was enjoying a long overdue weekend away (we postponed our trip due to the Aussie fires last year).

 

AIOP is not necessary to down load and get some great tips and tricks from my book, but it is core to allowing for a viral list building and income stream for you as it allows anyone to duplicate absolutely everything. 

 

If you choose to check it out, please go via Ted's link (it is the same book!).

 

Cheers

Nate
