After reading an e-book, consider promoting it on your site or blog by using a review–and don’t forget to include your affiliate links. After all, the best advertisement is satisfied word of mouth.

Here are some suggestions on how to endorse E-Books on your site.

Increase click-throughs: Getting visitors to your blog or site to click on your affiliate banner is extremely important and directly affects the dollars you earn! An effective method for capturing the attention of your visitors is to write reviews about the products behind your affiliate banner.

Reviews: A review starts out with a general idea of the publisher’s work, but gets quickly down to specifics. It gives a picture of how one could use the E-Book in daily life, for inspiration and encouragement, or in the homeschool, including planning, lesson preparation, and supply gathering. Have fun and write in a chatty way, and if appropriate, include photos.

  • Share basic information about the product, such as what is included, if it comes complete or needs extra purchases to complete it, if it is a book/CD/workbook/etc. Describe the product in detail.
  • Include personal opinions in your reviews. 
  • Be candid and speak with a personal tone/voice. Do not use “cookie cutter”, cut & paste reviews.
