If you're going to create an ebook, at some point you will need an ebook compiler, which is a program that takes the source files (the content of your ebook) and compiles those files into the actual file that your customers will download from your website.
Compiling your source files into an easy-to-distribute format (an .exe file) is vital to getting your ebook out to customers, and making it easy for them to read your material.
I use the Activ E-Book Compiler which has been independently rated as one of the most feature-rich E-Book Compilers, but it is also one of the least expensive.

A word from the creator of Activ eBook Compiler:
Why every Internet business should have its own product
by Sunil Tanna, EBookCompiler.com
A fairly standard piece of advice you'll find on marketing web sites is that Internet entrepreneurs must have their own product because "you get to keep most of the profit".
However with some affiliate programs offering 20, 30, 400r even 50ommission rates, a lot of web businesses find themselves wondering if that recommendation still applies. Usually the thinking goes something like this:
"If I sell a similar product myself, I have to deal with (a) additional work, for example customer service, (b) have increased set up and running costs, and (c) don't have the economies of scale of "big company X" so actually earn less per sale."
But while this reasoning might be true, what it neglects, is the benefits of having your own product go far beyond the profit per-sale, and include:
Sometimes just one or two of these benefits can be enough to form the foundation of a successful Internet business. Even if you already have your own Internet store or your own products, it might be worth creating additional products just to capture a benefit that was previously beyond your reach.
When you analyze things further, and decide what product to offer, you should concentrate on the benefits that you want from your product. For example, if your main goal is to acquire customers, provided you can develop and deliver the product cheaply enough, you may even want to make the product free to maximize your rate of customer acquisition. All things being equal. a golfing store that gives away a million free booklets of golfing tips is going to sell a lot more golf clubs that one that just waits for traffic to arrive.
So to sum up, the marketing gurus are right after all - although perhaps for different reasons than the main one that is often put forward - offering your product really does put you in the driving seat.Copyright, June 2000 S.
