EZ Ebook Template Package #1 Update Is COMPLETE!

ezebt_box_new_271Yay! Finally after a week or so it is D-O-N-E.

Yowsa, that took a lot longer than I thought it would. But is well worth it.

I was able to add a 23+ minute ‘how to’ video in both .AVI and .SWF (flash) formats

A 100+ page PDF instructional guide that teaches anyone how to do everything with the ebook templates in the package, or any other one for that matter

Updated all 6 of the original ebook templates using OpenOffice Writer 3.0.1

Added 2 extra ebook pages that contain standard/sample resell rights license text and legal disclaimer text

Added a REAL Table of Contents using the ‘Indexes/Tables’ function to each ebook template

And even updated all the reselling graphics too!

As you can see by the graphic displayed to the left of this text.

Best part of all, I’m letting 100 copies of this new updated version go for a one time payment of $10.00 to all current EZ Ebook Template #1 Package holders.

But, to get that deal, ya gotta be on my mailing list. Sorry Charlie(s). Just the way it is. See, being a member of even something free has its privileges ;-)

If you’re a current #1 package holder, and you’re not on my mailing list, sign up over on the right hand side, then contact me with your email address you signed up with and I’ll send you the details. Otherwise, you’ll have to wait another week or two before I release it to the general public at regular price ($27).

ezebooktemplatepack1After reviewing my very first EZebt Template Package, I saw gobs of room for improvement.

So that’s what I’ve been working on today.

I’ll be releasing this updated version here pretty soon, but you should read on for more details about that and what’s changing in this new, updated version.

In the updated version, the 6 templates will look pretty much the same but with some vast improvements over the original design layouts including:

  • Better Page Layout Designs Making It Super Easy To Add Your Ebook Content – this was a HUGE issue before and now with the updated version it will be tons easier to add new content, no matter how long your ebook chapters are
  • Updated Linked Table of Contents – each of the old templates will now have fully functioning, and linked, Table of Contents menus using the ‘Indexes and Tables’ option instead of having to input manually each new chapter link
  • 2 New Extra Pages In Each Design – I’ve added two new pages to each design that highlight your Resell Rights Licensing info and Legal Disclaimers info

Hopefully this upgrade will make things much, much easier to use the very first EZ Ebook Template Design Pack as it seems to get more and more popular by the day!

And, for those that have previously purchased the older version of Package #1, they will be able to purchase the updated version for a one time payment of $10.00.

Then they can resell it for the regular price of $27 to their own customers.

Plus, if you are currently selling this package, the updated version will please your customers with easier use.

And, I may even throw in a few video tutorials to the update as well to make things even easier. Heck, I might even create a PDF instructional manual to help out your buyers and reduce the need for extra customer service emails. That’s always a nice thing.

This new updated version should be ready to roll out by the end of this week and I will be sending out emails to my current list of buyers to pick up this new package.

I will also add the upgraded version inside my ‘Products’ section and begin selling it instead of the older version. But, inside there, it will cost the normal price of $27, so if you are a current EZebt Package #1 holder not currently on my buyers list, and want to pick it up for $10, then you’ll need to contact me directly. Just use the ‘Contact’ link on the top menu and I’ll answer you personally with all the details :-)

More than likely, I’ll end up doing an update for more earlier packages. #2 will be on the updates block next.

Free Stock Photos To Download And Use Now!

bigstockphoto_freephoto-red1Oh yes. It’s official. I am ecstatic to share this with you today. Big Stock Photo is giving away hundreds of royalty free, free images you can download right now.

I’ve looked ‘em over and they’re not too shabby. I’m sure you want the link, right? Who wouldn’t??! Okay, so Here Is The Link To Click To Go To The Big Stock Photo Free Image Library so you can snatch up your share. I set up the link so that it will open in an entirely new window for you so you never have to leave EZebt’s site. So convenient :)

No, there’s no obligation to download and use the images. At least that I know of anyway. And designers are always on the hunt for good, free, royalty free stock photos they can make use of either for themselves or for individual clients needs.

You have to understand that Big Stock Photo is one of the only royalty free stock photo sites that allows you to use their images inside website template designs. Of course, you can only use them one time inside one template, but you can always use their multi-purchase license thing and then you can create website, or ebook templates ;) , that include Master Resell Rights.

And when you’re ready to ‘graduate’ and actually purchase some images, Big Stock Photo has some really affordable pricing on their inventory. Smaller image sizes start at like $1 each. Not too bad. And they have tons of them to choose from too!

I would highly recommend Big Stock Photo to all designers. And not just because they’re giving away some choice freebies either. They’re gooooooood.

This Is Important: Please Read

chdbuttonMy very good friend Dr. Mani is having his annual “Day For Hearts” Donation event. What he does is to collect donations from across the web to help children in desperate need of help suffering from CHD or Congenital Heart Defects. Dr. Mani truly is a doctor. A heart surgeon to be exact. And he specializes in children. Where he comes from, there are so many poor children that cannot afford the treatments they so desperately need to live happy, healthy lives.

That’s where we come in as an online community and help. Dr. Mani doesn’t ask for much. Even a $5.00 donation helps these children. I implore you, if you can donate something, even just $5.00, please do. These children need our help.

This year, to raise even more money, Dr. Mani is hosting the first ever “Save A Child’s Heart” Firesale where you can donate 2 different donation levels at either $24.95 or $44.95 and he’ll give you a wondeful package of Internet Marketing products as part of your donation.

Whether you donate $5.00 or $500.00, anything you can give would be most appreciated. I know that this particular event is completely on the up and up and Dr. Mani is a terrific man. So find it in your heart and give a child a chance at a better life.

Do it today.

Dr. Mani’s annual “Day For Hearts” will begin on February 14th, but he is collecting donations right now and throughout the year for these lovely children. So show him and a needy child some love this Valentine’s day.

Oh, and P.S. – I’m not getting one thing out of this. I’m doing it as a way to show Dr. Mani that I care about his cause and I will also be donating myself. If you want to spread the word about Dr. Mani’s events, then please visit his main website page here to find out how you can help.
