by: David Riewe

1. Sell the reprint/reproduction rights to the product. You could make money selling other people the rights to reproduce and sell the product. People are always looking for new products to sell.

2. Giveaway the product for free from your web site. Just because it won’t sell doesn’t mean people won’t visit your web site to get it for free. They may see another product you sell and buy that one.

3. Try auctioning off the product at an online auction. You may make part of your investment back. If you’re lucky, you may even make a profit because people sometimes get into bidding wars and will bid a higher price than the product is worth.

4. Use the product as a free bonus for another product you sell. This will increase the perceived value of the product you’re selling. People will feel they’re receiving more for less.

5. Contact businesses with the same target market and see if they would be interested in using your product as a free bonus for their product. You could place your ad on the product and get free advertising.

6. Sell your product to businesses at wholesale cost as a promotional product. Businesses are always looking for products they can giveaway to their customers with their advertising on the product. You could make part of your investment back.

7. Barter your product to other businesses for things you need for your own business. You could trade for their products or services. This will save you money and help make up for your profit loss.

8. You could create an online contest so people could win your product. This will attract traffic to your web site. You also could get free advertising by listing it on online contest directories.

9. If you decide to giveaway the product for free, allow other people to giveaway the product for free. Place your web site ad on the product. This will spread your advertising and attract even more people to your site.

10. Ask businesses with the same target audience if they would be interested in combining your product with their product. You could then sell them together as a package deal and split the profits. You may have better results selling your product this way.

7 Effective Ways To Get More New Ezine Subscribers

by: Ken Hill

1. Swap an ad.

Pinpoint which ads and ezines work best for you by tracking your swaps. Also try to swap for multiple issues as many people won’t respond to your ad until they see it a few times.

2. Purchase ezine ads.

Run ads for your ezine in relevant ezines that you enjoy. Also search ezine directories for ezines that offer reasonable rates and that reach your target market.

3. Do a thank you page swap.Get excellent ongoing promotion of your ezine by using your thank you page to swap an ad or recommendation with another ezine publisher. Choose ezines that your new subscribers would be interested in, but not ezines that compete directly with you. Also make sure that you only recommend ezines that truly do offer valuable content, so that you won’t start off on the wrong foot with your new subscribers.

4. Offer a bonus.

Increase your subscriptions by offering something for free that your target market would find to be of value. For example, you could offer a free email course, ebook, report or access to your “subscriber only” membership site.

5. Write articles.

Your articles can help you to establish yourself as an expert in your field. Your articles can also help you to get more new readers that are interested in the topics covered in your ezine. Just add a resource box that promotes your ezine to your articles, or include a couple of lines of promotion for your ezine in addition to your other information.

6. Offer a sample issue.

Offer your sample issue on your site or by autoresponder, and when you can use it in your posts to ezine directories. You can also increase your subscriptions by linking to your sample issue in your resource box when you write articles to promote your ezine.

7. Provide testimonials.

Increase your ezine’s credibility by including testimonials that praise your ezine on your site. Include your reader’s first and last name and web address along with her testimonial, and when you can use testimonials that are specific in nature as opposed to those that are general.
