It’s that time of the year, and there are probably a lot of gifts on your list. And if you run your own business (even if it’s just you and your blog), you have even more gifts to give. You know, gifts for clients, business partners, vendors, and customers. That gets expensive.
An ecard is a popular choice, but let’s be honest—it’s not much of a gift. Instead, consider giving an ebook made with Blurb for something truly memorable (and economical). Whether it’s your writing, your images, your designs, a selection of your favorite blog posts—or some representation of whatever it is you and your business do—it’s an e-gift that’s all you.
Blurb’s ebooks run right on the iPad or in the iBooks app that’s part of Mac OS X Mavericks. For the Apple-free folks on your receiving list, you can create an Instant PDF that’s readable on pretty much every device.
Blurb’s fixed-format ebooks can include text, imagery, links, audio, and video. So you could even include a little office Christmas caroling as an added bonus. Or not; that depends on your singing voice. But a link to your website? That’s a no-brainer.
Ebooks are extremely inexpensive. For just $9.99 you can create an ebook of any size and then give away as many copies as you like simply by sending the download link to your customers, clients, and friends. The Instant PDF is just $4.99 to create.
And for those really special clients, you can still make a gift they can physically open—a printed book.
So, why not get started?
