Make Your Content PREsell! (MYCPS!)

Writing articles for websites is not the same as writing ad copy in the offline world. Web content requires a softer, trust-building approach, which the well-known Internet marketer and author Ken Evoy terms "PREselling."

Preselling is the process of developing a bond of trust with the visitor by providing useful information through the website, not just a hard-sell sales pitch.

The theory of PREselling distills down to the idea that consumers online are much more likely to buy based on a friendly recommendation, rather than high-pressure sales tactics. This e-book explains how to write to PRESell.

Make Your Site Sell! (MYSS!)

The MYSS ebook has been long considered a classic in the internet marketing world, and you can understand why due to the sheer length of 800 pages or so.

Not all of that is relevant to your as a writer, but many of the gems from the other three ebooks here come from MYSS! first, so it's certainly worth reading. It provides an excellent bird's eye view of how Internet marketing works and the role various types of writing play in the process.
