Written by Craig Warren
Many people dream they could simply give things away for
a living. Few know though that making this dream a
reality is not very difficult to do. In fact anybody can
start out doing this with no investment what so ever.
Many people over look the power of giving away brandable
books to make affiliate sales and drive traffic to their
site. Others utilize it to make themselves a living.

business of giving away brandable books is actually
finding the books. A fairly easy way to start is by doing
a search for brandable books. Although you may find tons
of books this way you should always keep an eye out for
them. They can be found all around and you should jump
on every opportunity to find new ones.

away from your site.

host. You will want to put them in an easy to find
directory to keep this as simple as possible.

time to start putting together your site. This can be a
very simple page that lists the different products you
have for download with a short description and a link to
download the product. If possible try to find a picture
for each product and use it as well.
