2 Quick Ideas to Get More From Your B2B eBook

file000115012376.jpgEBooks are a staple of many B2B content marketing programs, but they can be a lot of work to do them well. Here are a two simple ideas on how to get a bit more from the eBooks you are creating.

Put eBooks on Slideshare

While many marketers are using Slideshare for presentations, I think you should seriously consider it as a primary channel for eBooks as well because it has such a far reach.  For tips on how to design for Slideshare, check out this post from Gregory Ciotti on 10 Slideshare Strategies that will Boost Your Content’s Value.

Because much of the content on Slideshare is  open access, you may not think it is a good channel for eBooks you are using for lead generation, but think again. Slideshare can be a great way for you to get leads.

For instance, we produced the Ultimate eBook: 100 Content Marketing Examples at CMI. While this is available for download on our site behind a registration form, we also placed the first 10 examples on Slideshare and then used a call to action to download the entire guide.


Proactively gather more content than you need

TopRank Online Marketing recently developed the eBook, 29 Secrets About Content Marketing.  I liked the approach that Lee Odden and his team took with this piece.

As the title implies, the eBook reveals 29 secrets from content marketing special agents. As they gathered information for the eBook, Lee and his team did longer interviews with some of the participants. Then, the week prior to the release of the eBook, they ran a series of interviews with people such as Pam Didner and Jason Falls.

Not only was this a smart distribution strategy and a boost to the editorial calendar as they has a week of posts, but I imagine it was not too much more work as they were already reaching out.

What other quick tips do you have for creating and distributing eBooks? Share them in the comments below.

Thanks for mentioning the eBook Michele, it was a fun project and the speakers did a great job getting "into character" for the secret agent part. The cool part is, we're not done! Repurposed posts are to come :)

Creating a great eBook is also an opportunity to get some press. Submit an an online press release with a link to the eBook. This will help build links and generate traffic to your site.

The concepts of eBook and content marketing are almost the same. Well it was indeed an interesting post and i agree that it is the best and easiest way to gain leads through slide-share.

This is a very meaningful project, if you need money do not hesitate to contact https://vaytinchapdanang.vn for more advice and low interest rates, as far as I know. The eBook Reader with many gadgets can meet the needs of those who want to learn more. However, if you are intending to buy yourself a device of this type should consider a number of factors to choose the most useful product, the best. An eBook Reader must meet the text display. Clear copy In addition, eReaders also have long battery life, are easy to carry around, have a non-fictional screen and read well under a variety of environmental conditions. The good news is that almost every reader product currently meets this factor, but there are a number of other factors that you need to consider and consider. The owner of the manufacturer to find out detailed specifications of the machine. One of the important parameters of the eBook Reader is the book format that the machine supports.
