Selling Ebooks or Give them away for free and include Affiliate links?
Freelancers, Affiliates and Authors..
As you might know, I'm an author and I've been selling ebooks for a while now. However, what I've never done is to include affiliate links to products or services, and I personally believe that I've always charged a decent price for my ebooks.
That being said, there's an endless stream of self-claimed authors out there who gives away their ebooks free of charge, but they do this because they've often filled their ebooks with affiliate links. - By doing that, they can and most likely will reach more people, as they don't charge a single cent for their content.
However, I personally don't like this approach at all. I prefer to charge whatever I want for my creations and I rarely include any affiliate links at all, and in some specific cases when I've done that, I also state that in the book. - What do you think about this? - What do you prefer?
