What's the difference between a mini e-book and an e-book?
What makes an E book a mini e-book? Most e-books are over 30 pages in length some range to 300+ pages - like like Ken Evoy's. Some smaller e-books, cover their topics in 30 to 70 pages. They are complete and all encompassing.
In contrast to the e-book is the mini e-book. And its major difference is its length, under 25 pages or less. And another distinction is that a mini e-book is designed around a very specific and focused niche – it should also give a 'call to action' – to make a purchase, seek out more information on your sites or sign up for your mailing list or newsletter, or your blog.
Mini e-books can be a 'lite' version of full report that you've produced, or a summary of the benefits of your sites – or give information that you support in greater depth on your site. Your e-book should be carefully crafted to answer enough, but keep your readers wanting more – more that you can provide on the site.
Most mini e-books are also free - rather than capturing revenue, as most product launches should do, they are instead designed to attract and keep the attention of your visitors And it should also give your subscribers a reason to circulate your report – either for monetary or other gain – depending on the mini e-book, you could give it away as a free bonus to their own subscribers – which, of course would not gain your sign ups – but can get your name out there, along with any affiliate links or other upsell opportunities.
A mini e-book should be short, targeted, answer an oft asked question, but still be partially incomplete and yet still effective in offering your visitors or subscribers something worthwhile to read – and distribute.
