If you are creating a downloadable Ebook file that you want to distribute to people online, you will need to know how to upload a pdf file to a website.

In this tutorial, I explain how to do this in 2 methods:

  1. Uploading a PDF file to WordPress on your own domain and
  2. Uploading your PDF file to the free version at

If you have your own domain, it’s probably best to do that first. However, if you’re just getting started, and you’re using a funnel building software (like Clickfunnels or LeadPages) to distribute your ebook lead magnet, you will need to add your PDF file to the free version of WordPress.

Once you have your PDF file for your ebook uploaded, it WordPress will generate a link. From there, you can embed the link into an email in your autoresponder (program to send out emails. Try out for more info).

Or you can even create a “Thank You Page” as part of your funnel, where after the person opts-in to your list, you can give the ebook there as a “Thanks for Subscribing.”

    Why use ‘’ and not ‘’? I have read that the is the worst to use because it has many limitations.

    Afaizee – what you’re referring to is the difference between:

    1. Having your domain and blog (the dot org) and
    2. Those who do not (have to use the dot com)

    If you have your own blog on your own domain, you’re using the dot org, so you’d follow those set of instructions. If someone is literally just starting out and without a blog, you’d have to put it up on the free version until there’s a more long-term storage place for the PDF.

    Hope this clears things up.

    Update to this: Also, for those of you using Click Funnels, you can upload PDF to the “Assets” part in the system. So you can put your giveaways, lead magnets, and PDF’s there.

    Hope this helps!
