Just checking to see if the page peel I did for my Kindle EBook Course is working. And it is!
If you don’t know what a page peel is, look up to the right on your monitor. You should see the words “special offer” and the page having a corner that appears to be peeling. And if you run your cursor over the words, the page peel will peel back and you magically see a larger image.
I never really understood how a page peel worked until I got iDevAffiliate 6 software.
A page peel looked complicated and I had it on my back burner to learn. Well, the back burner got moved to the front burner when iDev’s Marketing Materials section had a Page Peel section. With a little bit of java script that iDevAffiliate provided, it was EZ.
Except for one thing…..
The graphic I made for my page peel was all wrong.
The program said for the small graphic in a page peel, I would need to make a 75 X 75 pixels. No problem, that worked. It was the larger graphic that was off.
I mean if they tell you to do a 500 by 500 graphic, you’d think you would need to use the whole 500 pixels for a page peel. Yeah right and then I woke up. Half of my page peel graphic was hidden. Back to the drawing board (literally) and I kept adjusting it until you see what is up in the right hand corner. The trick is to draw a line diagonally from top left corner to the bottom right corner on your 500 X 500 page peel graphic and only put what you want to promote in the part on the right.
Now you might be wondering what having a page peel has to do with marketing yourself or your book on the Internet. If you don’t have a website selling your book, then it’s not something you should care about but if you do, then knowing what affiliates want is extremely important.
And what they want is EZ copy and paste code they can put on their website. Plus a good commission. So why do you want to go out of your way to please affiliates?
Well marketing is time consuming. And if you’re like me, you’d rather be writing your next book.
Plus I know affiliates marketing efforts are more fine tuned than my feeble attempts so making it EZ for them means I just might have more time to make more products (ebooks) they can get commissions on. It’s a win-win situation for everyone.
