How to Cash In on Your Rejected Non-Fiction Titles
November 18, 2009

Even established authors get the thumbs down from publishers on submission of new work.

I should know because despite having 37 traditionally published titles under my belt, I have around a dozen still unpublished. Here is what I did and what do if you’d like to cash in on your rejected non-fiction works…

• Take the strongest; the best piece of advice from the selected tome
• Convert it into a PDF file

Now just give it away…

Why give your best information away for free?

Here’s why: give your best stuff away and nine out of ten recipients will reckon the rest of what you have to offer must be mustard. It’s a quirk of human nature…

Here is the complete formula:

• Take your selected tome and convert into an instructional digital product
• Alternatively, convert the strongest chapters into individual products
• Do both if you are of a mind to…
• Invest in a domain name that fits the purpose (it will only cost you a few dollars)
• Set up a squeeze page for your giveaway
• Set up a webpage (or pages) to house your saleable merchandise promotion
• Load your produce to a reliable storage server
• Decide on your price point(s)
• Create lots of articles relating to your specialist niche
• Submit them on a gradual basis (complete with your URL in a bio box) to Ezine Articles (Google loves them and ranks their pages highly)
• Create a resource page on your site and include all your articles with an invitation to visitors to download and use them themselves
• Use your giveaway squeeze page to collect prospective customer email addresses
• Choose a couple of payment processors (ClickBank & PayPal for example)
• Email your list (if you have one) regularly with both offers and advice
• Set up a blo
• Promote sensibly through Facebook
• Do likewise on Twitter
• Do not use so-called ‘safe lists’; they’ll waste your money or get you into trouble

Does this all sound like too much trouble?

Not for me it isn’t…

From just ONE rejected non-fiction title I have over the years created 10 digital information products all of which sell consistently and show no visible signs of slowing down.

Try this; it works.
